I thought it was a perfect time to take a spin around the town with the Supra. It's quite a while since I drove this thing!

Cleaned up a little bit of dust and it's all good to go :)

Image

It's pretty nice to drive around with this car with a smell of gasoline and the sound of inline-6, which is quite a harmony.

People here didn't really like the "noise" it makes, so I quickly headed to the local highway to avoid the unwanted attention.

Image

For now I've just capped this car's potential, because it might kill me when I engage the full throttle with the full boost setup.

Also, there aren't many places to run like 300km/h with stable road condition.

Image

The best I could do for now is maintain this car to its greatest condition and preserve it, and drive it like a daily.

There's nothing better than driving a car like a daily!

Image

Speaking of ECR33, I've reconditioned the front fender and bought a new pair of rear widebody fenders (+50mm) for V$ 300 to match the increased front track width.

Also, I've returned the CST wheels to 11K and retrieved my AVS6 which is now clean and new!

Image

The rear is now bulkier and looks just like a GT-R chassis overall. But I am not sure if I keep the bolts on the fenders or just hide it.

Image

Also copped the Kakimoto exhaust for R33, which costed V$ 600. Now it should sound better and gives a bit more of oomph to the car itself.

I've been through some stuff lately, and I came up with a simple, but effective upgrade for a R33 GT-R. Not the RWD missile this time :^)

Image

I've traded the BBS LM wheels with these SSR SP1s and the slightly used set of Advan tires with 80% tread remaining, alongside with V$ 1500 in cash.

Pretty good deal I guess. because I had some issues with previous tires and I didn't really like how it felt to be honest. A great time to move on!

Image

And as you noticed, the front fender had to be widened in order to cope with the increased width (actually same but it pokes out more) so I had to find the over fenders, which looks clean and OEM as possible.

Therefore I came up with 400R style fender flares for only V$ 200 and with some fabrications and paint, it fits pretty well.

Image

I gave rear more aggressive styling to have a deeper dish on the back (GT-R thicc yes) and got even wider because of the fender.

Image

Last but not least, I installed the StopTech 14 inch brake set all around for V$ 3500, and sold the OEM Nismo brake kit for V$ 1000. Bigger brakes, better safety!

it looks quite good quality but I didn't like the choice of rims too much, I think a nicer rim could be preferred. Of course it's a matter of taste. :)

I didn't think the SSRs would fit that well on your GTR but they do! Great match with the overfenders but you could try painting them white to keep that super clean look like it had before. :D

Survivor Cars?

Image

As you might heard from @Benny, @Lagano and @BigSmoke's thread, @11000rpm and I decided to hop on a plane for a SEMA 2019 which is held in Las Vegas.

Benny invited us to a SEMA show to show off his immaculate, and perfect E60 V10 swapped Infiniti G35 to the show. Well the show was full of nice slammed cars, fully souped up spec race cars and all kinds of quirky and showy vehicles.

Also our Seoul Crew was able to meet one of Kami-Sama crews, @RocketBunnyS13 but unfortunately not @Niatross and @topy due to their hectic local schedule.

All of us really had a big fun and epic casino baller moment in Las Vegas, but I happened to meet several people during the show, who claimed to own a Motorex BNR34 and bring his friend as well. So I DMed them and decided to meet them at the local parking lot.

Well I thought this was a perfect time to see a shady side of American automotive history, and some would say "What the heck is a Motorex?" Well...
...Motorex was a registered importer of Nissan Skylines in the late 90s, responsible for bringing the cars across the Pacific and getting them up to EPA and NHTSA standards before releasing them to the private party that initially purchased the car from Japan via Motorex...

...Motorex tried to lobby the R32 and R34 as models “substantially similar” enough to the R33 so that they didn’t require separate crash testing....

...The owner of Motorex continued to bring in cars faster than they could be brought up to safety and smog standards, vastly outspent his income on questionable habits, and eventually the whole company came falling down...

...Cars went missing, paperwork never got filed, payments were made to Motorex but products and services went unrendered...
And the car community speculates that there are less than 15 of "US legal" Motorex R34s in the whole freedom land. And I was very excited to encounter one of them!

Image

...And here it is. It's the '99 GT-R which was featured in Doug DeMuro's previous video. At first glance it pretty much says this example was driven pretty frequently by the owner and not the garage queen.

SIde Note : The license plate will be blurred out for obvious reason, and I don't want to disclose any more personal information of the owner :)

Image

it has a Nismo Z-Tune style CF hood and painted lower lip as an external modification, and the engine wasn't modified at all.

Image

Basically it has all of the factory V-Spec goodies which reminds me of my BNR34!

Image

I was pretty lucky to have a shotgun ride on this R34 and it felt pretty weird and great at the same time, like you are allowed to enjoy all the good stuff of this forbidden fruit.

Image

We headed to a local fast food chain for a quick photoshoot and the parking, and the R34 owner's friend came with his R33 GT-R, which was a Motorex R33 as well.

Image

It's a silver '96 GT-R Series 1 which will be fully legal in States next year, but who cares when you already own a fully legal one?

Image

He did some minor modifications to the R33 to fully enjoy the forbidden fruit, which are N1 bumper ducts, BCRacing coilovers and the LMGT4 wheels wrapped with Continental tires!

Image

Also he even upgraded the brakes, CF rear spoiler and the Series 3 front lips, and he mentioned the R33 is basically his favorite and the best track toy he have owned so far.

Image

I was pretty glad to see the modern touch for this vintage Japanese classics, and a very handful of them are still around the states.

But still, I haven't seen anyone who was really confident and brave enough to LHD swap their Motorex cars other than Benny and RedCarDriver!

Aaaaah finally, someone brought the infamous Motorex case! It's one of my favourite cases in the motoring world, partly due to it involving the GT-Rs. And glad to see some of their imports are alive and healthy as well! I guess I should've not just dwell inside SEMA to look at the racecars :lol:

Uh oh man damn after all the sema updates i didn't see anyone mention the Motorex R34 honestly didn't even know that there was a thing like that and it's absolutely sick!!! And then the r33? It's a shame they bankrupted and only did so few sky's in the us but they really do seem like they're on high level :P

Those GT-Rs were just epic man! Maybe the R33 was from RentJDM, i kinda wanted to try out one of their cars too! And yeah, the Motorex cars are very rare and appreciated, especially R34s because there's so few of them still remaining! Many of those were seized but those who already bought it got lucky. Thanks to Doug i know it like my back pocket :lol:

It's been few weeks since I came back to Korea, and I got a message from Mr. Lee that the package I ordered from Japan has been safely arrived to his garage shop.

I picked up the R34 stock wheels and the winter tires I used last year, and the LMGT4 is now being stored in the garage for now until spring.

That means Supra will be stored inside my home's garage for few weeks at least.

Image

Anyways, I ordered several parts from @Niatross from Omori Factory, with unpainted pair of Nismo side skirt lips, Nismo rear bumper lips and the R34 LED rear light assembly.

The rear LED lights came without the rear light cover, and it was not that difficult to replace. But the most difficult part was to find this "EV1 Lightning Yellow" paint in order to use for my future build or repair.

Well I could source exact same paint for GT-T models, but I just decided to make it as close as possible with the help of 11K, and the result came out pretty okay!

Image

Now the side and the rear is covered!

Image

Regarding the rear LED lights from Nismo, it was actually a discontinued product but Niatross thankfully sourced a new old stock lying around!

No cracks, no dead LED bulbs and clean surface really proves these were genuine Nismo parts, and I didn't want to cheap out on this rare R34.

Image

I just hope the local cops don't stop me for this simple LED rear lights, I am too lazy to prove this is actually the "OEM" product :)

And I don't have to worry about exchanging the light bulbs every time now. That's a big advantage.

Image

So here's how the R34 looks like now, and probably it will have more upgrades as year 2020 is right around the corner!

Hibernation

Image

The harsh Korean winter is almost around the corner, so I had to get prepared before the snowstorm hits the area and somehow affects my cars.

I decided to store the two lowest cars (BCNR33, JZA80) to my home garage and leave the ECR33 to Mr. Lee's garage for more parts overhaul and visual upgrade.

Also, the front lower lips of the stock BNR34 bumper has been painted with the same body color, as the black stock ones didn't quite go well with the Nismo-esque exterior.

Image

The SSR wheels on the BCNR33 was temporarily removed and replaced with R33 GT-R stock wheels with snow tires, just in case when the R34 breaks down and needs some time to get it fixed.

So it's basically a Plan B for the all-wheel-drive car which is quite helpful during harsh winter.

As you can see, I made Supra's ride height about half an inch higher than the previous setting to increase the stability and prevent the bottom from rubbing the road surface.

But unfortunately Supra will be stored for a while until the snowstorm goes away.

Image

So basically this is my winter plan! Also, speaking of ECR33...

Image

It's currently in this condition with lots of VW Harlequin inspired paintjob, and pretty much whole panels are replaced except few are still original.

I've acquired this PS Duce R33 full kit from local Facebook market for about V$800, because the previous owner was tired of scraping and damaging the bumpers.

Image

I had to move the license plate to the right because the front intake could be blocked, and mostly it doesn't look that great.

Also, one of the hardest find, was the ECR33 Aero Grill for V$ 200, which came with only a handful of trims. Pretty lucky find!

Image

I sold the AVS6 for V$ 2000 to Mr. Lee and he wanted to fit those to his RPS13, and I haven't decided which wheels to put next.

Probably OG TE37s or maybe one of those chrome SSR hotboi wheels?

Image

Also the interior goodies arrived safely before the holiday season.

The VERTEX Forever steering wheels and the BRIDE VERTEX racing seats are installed for better aesthetics, and much better driver stability while driving.

Image

It's still a wet season so I didn't decide to respray the whole car, but it will be repainted as Nismo 400R White.

Some might think retaining the two-tone would be better, but with those PS Duce Kit and the original paint scheme aren't my bread.

Also I've planned to get a livery that matches with @11000rpm's JZX in Japan for future drift matsuris!

Image

Also, stuck in snow is not a great feeling after all ;) Coming Soon!

Holiday

Image

Before the snowstorm really hits the shores, I decided to change the shoes and socks of the Supra yet again.

I sourced barely used Advan GT 18 inch wheels with used A048 tires for V$ 4000, which was a racing spares for a weekend trackday racer.

Image

TE37SL is aesthetically more pleasing to me, but 5 spoke lightweight wheels are another nice stuff that I really love.

Well putting a semi-slick tires during winter sound like a crazy plan, but I mentioned before, it will be used only when I want to (when the road is dry).

Image

Besides wheels and tires, nothing has been changed. And guess where the TE37SL went to!

Image

I brought R34 with 11K's help and took out the stock wheels, replacing with the TE37SL.

Image

It reminds me of the previous white ER34 I owned quite a bit ago. But now it's a genuine BNR34!

Image

To spice things up more, Nismo parts I ordered from Nengun arrived, which is a Z-Tune front bumper and the fender set.

Well the carbon version was pretty much out of the price range, so I had to take some sneaky shortcut. Probably gotta sell these and replace it whenever possible!

Decided to work on the cars during the whole holidays, and merry christmas!

Recently I started working on the ECR33 again, this time aesthetics-wise.

Mr. Lee and 11K came back from holidays and started to work on the projects we had.

Image

It's pretty sad to see the two-tone go away, but the paint condition on this 20-something year old car was pretty much a mess.

I decided to paint it same color as my BCNR33, quite simple but really easy to prepare some wrap or decal preparations.

Image

Also, there are some period-correct goodies added to this build. Something like nice sets of wheels and mirrors :)

Image

First of all, I got the ganador mirrors for the R33 model. Lucky to find one since it's long gone for a long time. Copped for V$ 800!

Image

No more R33 stockies! I got the used pairs of Advan Model 6s and the tires set for V$ 1500, repainted with the same body color and the original logo work will be done shortly.

Image

I can say the aesthetics of this project is mostly done, and the thing I need to take care of is the performance.

I need to practice how to handle the heavier boost of the single turbo setup, and probably need to take care of the suspension more.

I'm a fan of the two-tones but yeah, it looks quite tired. New paint definitely helps on refreshing the looks! And are you saying you're gonna wrap it in a livery? If you eventually do, can't wait to see the final result :D

Pony Car

Image

It's been a few weeks and I worked my ass off in order to deal with my Japanese classic fleets.

I've been through several meaningless decisions and shady workarounds to get the maximum paycheck I could get from the workplace.

I thought using a yellow Skyline which makes it super weird some time as a daily, and I needed another petty excuse to add another car to my shopping list.

Also it was before a holiday season so I had to be quick to find the car I wanted to get as a secondary daily driver.

And I ended up with getting this, a '05 Ford Mustang GT which was once used as a rental vehicle for a pretty long time.

Image

I got this American muscle for 8.5K with all the repair bills and the previous records. Neat!

At a first glance, it's a pretty acceptable, considering it was abused by countless number of strangers who just wanted a two-seater pony car for a special occasions.

The exterior was not good nor bad, the right side skirt was not its original pair, and the paint lost its shine and it looked rather bland and dull with lots of swirl marks.

It's been driven for a whopping 175K km (110K miles) and the engine needed to be reworked. Luckily as an ex-fleet car, most crucial parts (something like tires, brake pads) were already replaced.

However I am not sure those replacements were legit or even coming up to this car's real performance figure it used to have.

Image

The interior was a typical American plastic from early 2000s, lots of cost saving measures and cutting corners. Well it's meant to be made cheap thinking about the base price of this car when it was new.

Pretty unusual for a rental vehicle in Korea, which is a manual transmission. Pretty weird choice but maybe the rental company wanted one or two manual vehicles for a promotion I guess?

Anyways, most people drive stick shift like a truck so the clutch should be replaced as soon as possible, I could feel the slipping even when I was trying to park it inside the garage.

Image

One thing about the non-US spec Mustangs are, it sometimes came with different set of rear light relays or even a different parts like this one has.

The earlier batch had same US-spec lights but with bumper cutouts for the blinkers.

The law didn't allow cars being sold with the red blinkers (it's available nowadays) and Ford had to drill the bumpers and make relays different to comply with the law.

But this one is a later batch which has a EU-spec rear lights which looks much cleaner and Ford didn't have to drill the bumpers.

At least I can say I was lucky to get this one.

Image

I probably have to spend another money to fix the basic stuff to make this run like a proper muscle car, not a barbie convertible.

Registering with a new license plate and probably replacing a near dead battery would work for now.

your Supra is insane as always, but that ECR33 is nuts!!

A Mustang is unorthodox, but i like it. Can't wait to see what comes of it.

Well I thought it'll be an import or ex-govt vehicle but nah, it's a rental car. And that means as Jeremy Clarkson would agree with, you've scored yourself the fastest car in the world! :lol:
Since it's been abused in many ways (though not as severe as Jeremy did to his Auris) repairing the Mustang might be difficult, but otherwise I'm looking forward to the progress of this American icon. South Korea is probably the next hidden muscle car heaven! :D

Woah a Mustang! Now that's what i'm talking about. Buying an old rental car can be quite risky but fortunately it seems like this one was well taken care of. Aside of the clutch, of course, that's inevitable since so many random people drive it. Now you reminded me i should try out some more muscle cars, being in their homeland!!

If you need any parts for it, let me know cause Mustangs from these years are pretty much ordinary in the States :lol:
