Close-Up: GReddy Nissan 35RX

Bear with me on this post; there’s a possibility that I could still be a little intoxicated.  I’ll keep the grammar in check as best as I can.  It seems like Nissan has lost the battle in trying to keep the R35 GTR a machine that needs no modification.  In the hands of the Japanese elite tuners, nothing is sacred.  Take, for example, the GReddy 35RX; a machine so deconstructed, that it retains little to no trace of the original form.  I want to show you something pretty amazing – so click past the break.

Event: R’s Meeting 2011 – Fuji Speedway v.2

Welcome back to the second part of the R’s Meeting coverage from Fuji.  I’m considering this a remote post because I’m actually not at home right now.  If you’re a regular follower you’ll have seen my post about my computer crashing; so I flew to Oakland to get some software from my friend in Hayward.  While I’m here I thought I may as well post up the second part of the Skyline madness.  Remember we have a facebook page now – be sure to friend up on the side bar.  Cheers!

Event: R’s Meeting 2011 – Fuji Speedway v.1

.

Have you ever had one of those months that seems to last only a few days?  Between work and my unnatural, incessant need to constantly be inside of an airplane, it feels as if I haven’t been home for more than a few hours each week.  It shows in the site traffic too; so here to remedy this is the first installment of the GT-R Magazine R’s Meeting 2011 at Fuji Speedway.  I gave you a preview of JDM Clips’ coverage when I posted the Encounter with Auto Gallery Yokohama’s R32, but past the break is the first round of event coverage.  Enjoy.

Encounter: Auto Gallery Yokohama R32

.

This past weekend at Fuji Speedway, GT-R Magazine held ‘R’s Meeting 2011’, a giant gathering of Skyline owners and their cars.  This event seems to be extremely similar to the Skyline Festival; which was sponsored by Nissan.   Exhibitions and ride-alongs were given throughout the day from the various tuners that attended.  One car that I will always be happy to see, and will eventually get to photograph one day, is the Auto Gallery Yokohama R32.  This has always been my favorite Skyline build and I’m excited to share some photos with you – compliments of JDM Clips.  Click past the break for a few quick snaps.

Event: ノスタルジックカー Skyline Festival 2011 @ Fuji Speedway v.1

.

Throughout the year, ノスタルジックカーショー (Nostalgic Car Show), hosts a series of events for classic makes of cars – included in this series is the beloved Nissan Skyline.  Every year hundreds of Skyline owners and tuners gather to share each others passion for the Skyline.  These one make car shows are great for getting an in-depth look at the history of the model, as well as capturing the individual creativity of each owner.  Fuji Speedway was host to the event this year, and as usual, the owners had the opportunity to take their cars out on track.  Click past the break for coverage.

Encounter: Untouched R34

.

In the same lot that I spotted the FD I posted last week was this completely stock R34.  I can’t even remember the last time I saw one of these without any modification.  Looking at it from the side, it looks a little too tall for my tastes – but how perfect would this thing be if it were lowered just a bit?  I got a few more shots past the break.
