Last weekend our friend Franklin had come down to our area to grab dinner before he left on vacation to British Columbia. I hadn’t seen him in quite some time and it was nice to catch up over sushi. As an added bonus, he brought down his newly made-over Z32 and I was able to snap some pictures in front of our shop. Click past the break to see more.

Garage Life: An Evening In Riverside
Yesterday evening we decided to make the drive out to Riverside to visit Franklin. His car’s been down for awhile and he hasn’t been able to come down our way for awhile. I had been driving a lot this past week, and didn’t really feel like tacking on a drive all the way out to Riverside, so I got a ride with Allan and we both met Yuta over there. It’s been quite awhile since I did a Garage Life post, so I brought along my camera stuff to get a few shots – nothing fancy though. Not sure why, but I don’t really take pictures of what I do outside of events and stuff, but these types of post get good attention; so you can expect more day to day lifestyle type posts like this in the future. Anyway, click past the break for a few more shots.
Feature: Playing in the rain – Kevin’s Fairlady Z
I’ve always been a fan of the Z32; it’s shape is so iconic to the 90’s sports car. It’s one of those cars that I love to look at, but would never have the patience to build. So, with that said, I’ll leave it up to people like Kevin Hurst to build them for me to look at. I met Kevin when he moved into my old apartment complex a few years ago. I had noticed his Z in the parking area a few times, mainly due to the concave 5-Zigens and it being 1 inch off the ground, but I never saw a driver. We eventually ran into each other when I was washing my car and instantly started talking cars. I mentioned my blog and it was decided that I would eventually get to photograph his car. A few months and mods later, we finally both had a break in our schedules to take some shots and grab some lunch. Check out the results past the break.
