Walking with Liberty

"Liberty Walk means to not be afraid to cut up a Ferrari. To not worry if it will drive straight. To not be bothered by the naysayers. If it's a car i bought and if it's not causing harm to anyone, then i should be able to do what i please. That's Liberty..." Kato-san preaching it like a boss.

E34 M5s on Best Motoring

Old school 3.8 brute featured on Best Motoring. Not something you'd see everyday! Starts at the 16 minute mark. This one shows the M5 (looks like a 3.6) take on the mighty W124 500E.

Nissan's 510-inspired IDX

Nissan's bringing back to 510 to battle what they call, the "mid-life crisis" 86/BRZ twins. Let's rumble! That Nismo version is looking mighty fine. The street beige one? Much less so.

Style Society Singapore 2013 - Part II

 photo DSC08929.jpg When it comes to automotive meets, no matter how many you've been to, there will always be some surprises awaiting and just before heading down to the show grounds, i had one of my most pleasant encouters. A pair of Malaysian Munich Legends had just blitzed down the North-South earlier in the morning to join in our tiny convoy. Not only that, these 2 beauties were wearing some of the finest shoes to ever grace the machines from Bavaria, original Alpinas!  photo DSC08923.jpg Our small convoy trekked up to the showgrounds soon after and we arrived just as everything seemed to be setting up.  photo DSC08924.jpg Mr Blitzer's sedan awaiting parking instructions.  photo DSC08927.jpg Estoril Blue M3 Evo made all the right noises.  photo DSC08933.jpg  photo DSC09042.jpg Eventually we were settled into our little nook at the edge of the carpark. Adding some old school Euro Flavor to an otherwise JDM-heavy event.  photo DSC08939.jpg  photo DSC08945.jpg Such a lovely color.  photo DSC09182.jpg  photo DSC08971.jpg The good stuff.  photo DSC08949.jpg The magic of Alpina wheels. All wheels require a key to get to the lug nuts...  photo DSC08944.jpg Even the air valve stem can only be accessed from the inside. Keeps the aesthetics clean.  photo DSC09176.jpg  photo DSC08953.jpg Proper craftmanship right there.  photo DSC09063.jpg  photo DSC09056.jpg  photo DSC08943.jpg With so few left running on our local streets, my car has finally found another coupe to call a cousin.  photo DSC08958.jpg Singapore specials.  photo DSC08968.jpg Mr Blitzer's sedan rolling on phat custom-ordered WORK Meisters!  photo DSC09158.jpg We managed to hijack a couple of lasses who were giving out flyers.  photo DSC09162.jpg  photo DSC09160.jpg Hope they didn't mind. :P  photo DSC09045.jpg Bilsteins FTW!  photo DSC09050.jpg Signing off! We have loved to have stayed longer but with other commitments awaiting, the 4 of us made an early exit and headed off! Let's hope they organize another one next year!

 photo DSC09001.jpg Style Society Singapore 2013 was held over the weekend in collaboration with global automotive culture giant Stancenation, the show was awesome.  photo DSC09152.jpg Even with dark clouds looming overhead, the rain refused to fall and everyone's spirits remained high! (Not to mention, dry!)  photo DSC08981.jpg Our local shores might be one of the most modification unfriendly places around but that did not stop hundreds from turning up and just enjoying what we have.  photo DSC09024.jpg  photo DSC09125.jpg A number of cars from neighbouring country Malaysia also joined in the fun and we also had a couple of friends driving down all the way from KL on the day itself. (But more on that in a later posts).  photo DSC08979.jpg There were a lot of cars on the showgrounds but with the limited time we had, here's Part I of our highlights.  photo DSC08998.jpg Toyota trio each sporting a different style.  photo DSC09006.jpg Boso racer?  photo DSC09009.jpg Resto-mod?  photo DSC09005.jpg Or some so-cal flavor?  photo DSC08985.jpg  photo DSC09087.jpg The ghost of WWII planes (and Rusty Slammington) seem to have made their way over to our local shores.  photo DSC09119.jpg  photo DSC09112.jpg  photo DSC09171.jpg Vtec yo!  photo DSC09094.jpg Did anyone mention i have a thing for itashas?  photo DSC09036.jpg Kawaiii~  photo DSC09130.jpg You don't see this everyday, a stanced i45.  photo DSC09090.jpg Something even more uncommon on our local roads, a late 90s Galant. But rarity here not stopping it's owner from having some fun with it! That's the spirit!  photo DSC09020.jpg Takumi was around to provite some loud engine noises earlier in the day.  photo DSC09023.jpg Ryosuke chose to chill out instead.  photo DSC09099.jpg I think this color is called Burple.  photo DSC09102.jpg Looks like Candy.  photo DSC09107.jpg Bb reppin Moondiscs!  photo DSC09015.jpg  photo DSC09026.jpg  photo DSC09014.jpg Speaking of which, there were plenty on interesting shoes around.  photo DSC09029.jpg  photo DSC09121.jpg Vanning culture seems to be doing rather well'  photo DSC09137.jpg  photo DSC09136.jpg  photo DSC09133.jpg While some builds do seem to gravitate towards the lighter side of life...  photo DSC09031.jpg  photo DSC09082.jpg ...Others looked like they came with their eyes on the prize. Putting in plenty of effort to get the "right" look.  photo DSC09021.jpg Do you dish?  photo DSC09069.jpg  photo DSC09074.jpg The slammed Audi duo. One on bags, the other on coilovers. Guess which is which?  photo DSC09116.jpg A more track-oriented stance. Meaty!  photo DSC09147.jpg Interesting black brushed aluminium wrap on an Aventadoor.  photo DSC09149.jpg Don't scratch the car!  photo DSC09142.jpg  photo DSC09145.jpg I guess the cars were not the only eye candy at the show!  photo DSC09164.jpg Gotta get ourselves a Nobori flag next time!
