This second GT-R Ed got was much nicer with a lot less major damage it almost looked ready to go with the panels fixed, the interior stripped, almost ready to go into drift development. This one of course was not $10k but it looks like Adam and the crew have been working on this one a lot. On a side note my original purpose for heading to the shop was to check out the latest developments on my S13, Jeff made big developments with the turbo and getting the EMS installed. Its amazing how much work and detail go into turning an NA car into forced induction without doing it ghetto fab style. The S13 is coming along a lot better than I had ever imagined, super clean and the work on it rivals professional drift rides. Mad props to Jeff for all the attention to detail and being a bomb car builder. We may get the car and the dyno tomorrow for some initial benchmarking. You can even see the S13 on the very left of this photo, you can just make out the kouki taillights!
This is what a $10k 2009 Nissan GT-R looks like. This is one of 2 GT- Rs at the shop being prepped for the 2010 drift season for Ed’s Hankook deal. I was checking this one out and I don’t even know if it’s worth 10k, the car is super retarded and looks like it got stepped on by a transformer. Whoever owned this car before I would say may not be walking the earth no more espeoally the passenger, severe frame damage and every body panel on this thing was jacked.
Congrats to Chris and Sandra on their first baby boy! It’s always nice to see fresh babies, this little guy Jayden was born just 3 hours prior to when I saw him tonight. Pretty dope makes me miss when my little man was KFC bucket sized.
Sho got a birthday gift in the mail today courtesy of BC. Sho seems pretty stoked on it, buy he is going to trip when he discovers it’s remote controlled (damn battery needs the 24 hour charge for initial use). I don’t know who’s more anxious to play with it, me or him.
Must come to an end as they saying goes. Sho’s birthday came and went like a ninja, turned out better than I had imagined in my head. We had a pretty dope pirate themed jumper that both kids and my friends enjoyed, food by taco nazo and freshes popped kettle corn along with 50 or so close friends and family. I am happy for my little man Sho. Happy Birthday little guy!
