Old man cars?

I'm not going to lie, Lexuses (Lexi?)generally bore me (bar the odd SC300).
This one however, makes me very excited.
+18 front
+12 Rear

Amazing what you find...

...buried under a pile of wheels and junk. Turns out I had an S13 in there somewhere.

Now back on the road and legal, I administered a thorough shoe-ing at Crail.

Maybe a bit too thorough...

Replacement parts already sorted and awaiting fitment , good excuse for a decent front bumper I guess. Also gave the Borbets a long overdue test-fit up front, steering looks entirely possible!

it will fit! *smash* smash*

spent the day trying to get the v8 under a stock bonnet. so so close now the webbing has gone - chav style raisers is my last resort before i cut a hole round the filter

Operation: Boringify the Kouki

Winters coming. Its time to put the Meisters to sleep.



Those chunky Dunlop SP9000s look like Drag Radials on the back. Maybe I'm just not used to properly sized tyres. Either way, the car looks boring, and I have slightly more ground clearance than before. They're fine to roll around on for the winter whilst I try to get the car ready for next summer (I must of driven it 2 or 3 times this summer - weak)
