I developed a random film I had lying around a while back and to my suprise, half of it was from Ebisu, Japan when we went in 2010! Enjoy these two of the clean red 180SX at Kita Course. Go here for some medium format photos of the same day and follow the links for more. Also, check out this link for some more photos from our Japan drifting tour.

Fraser Cars 2013
We took a trip out to Fraser cars here in Auckland recently to check out their factory. Fraser cars builds Lotus 7-esk cars for customers around the world and has been doing so for many many years. Neil Fraser is also a LVVTA certifier and gives the okay on vehicle modifications around Auckland.
Their factory is no less than inspiring, filled with quality tools and machines from years gone by still hammering along like the day they landed on the show room floor. Fraser cars builds predominantly Frasers but also takes on a variety of fabrication projects and when we were there, there was a Saker sport car, a t-bucket and a Toyota Celica all getting a make over.
I’ve selected the following group of photos from their factory to hopefully illustrate the atmosphere of this truly Kiwi workshop. May they continue to build ridiculous sports cars for years to come. http://www.fraser.co.nz/

A while back my dad and I went to watch the sunset portion of the 12 hours endurance race held at Hampton Downs. The field was small but the racing still very intense as teams raced into the night. Meeting with some friends in the pits, it was evident that after racing all day they were trashed, walking zombie racers. Their Subaru had been in the pits a few times over the day for repairs to the rear axle, but finished the race. Success.

Sometime I forget I even owned this car but thankfully the new owner Mark has kept in touch. The above photo of the Sunny is from the Hutt Valley Motorsport autocross held on the weekend. Apparently the Sunny went great and finally turned a few tires into smoke in the dry. I can’t say just how happy I am that this car went to someone who is taking care of it and is shredding some tires, it makes all that hard work worth it even if it’s not me driving! Mark placed 19/43 entrants, between a silvia and a skyline, nice one Mark.
I believe it is currently in the process of being certified for road use although it was already certified for the suspension and wheels. Will keep posting on it where possible.
Credit to simply vanilla for the photos, thanks!
