I usually like to entertain myself at car shows by scrutinizing each car that I pass by. Obviously, you’ve seen from my past coverage of any car show, that I’m fairly particular in the cars I post. This makes for a less comprehensive view of the event, but I’ve always done my best to keep the site to a specific niche, and not posting just for the sake of posting. That being said, I like to pick a car at each show that I like the best, and give it the imaginary NDF award. At last weekend’s Autocon show, it was this S2000 here which received such a pretentiously made-up honor of the NDF Choice.
I’m back! In town that is. Well, long enough to get the second part of our Autocon LA coverage up. We continue our retina stimulating walk through the Pomona Fairplex with a look at the Pink Ribbon Racing FD3S.
I had the strangest sensation of déjà vu when we pulled into the Pomona Fairplex parking lot this past Saturday morning to attend Autocon. I don’t know if it was a combination of the weather, which mirrored the overcast skies at last April’s event, or the fact that I was with Yuta once again, or even the time of year, but I got it (much like the three cups of coffee I just drank have given me over-caffeinated body shakes right now; not even sure how I’m able to type this without error).
That sensation, though, reminded me of just how much I’ve come to enjoy Autocon over the past 5 years.
Come join Amir and I for a Sunday morning cup of coffee as we compare the US Time Attack culture to that of Japan’s. Get an update on Amir’s current venture in the US competition […]
Hey everyone – we’re back!
Sorry about the down time last night that led into this morning; the result of such down time, however, is the new layout of the site. If I were being completely honest, I’ve never been 100% satisfied with the look of the site (or anything in my life for that matter). As a result, the site has changed it’s look over the past years multiple times.
Mobara invites from Team Yamada. Lots of good street teams out this day.
Did ya get that one?
There’s no doubt that when Nissan developed the GTI-R version of the N14 Pulsar, they were in it to fill a performance niche. The three-door hatchback was not only AWD, but sported the ever popular SR20DET engine producing 227 horsepower. Boasting an incredible power-to-weight ratio, Nissan had influence to produce such a car to compete in the WRC. I wonder if they knew other people would have similar ideas though…
