Char & Toyota

  If you've ever watched  the anime Gundam, then you'd know the character Char Aznable. I wonder if marketing a car with a Gundam character works?

Summers end

At least for me, I'm on Filipino time.  But what better way to spend it, by spewing loads of smoke from some fresh Hankook tires.  Got together with Steve C. and his spotting ladies macho machine and his co worker at the balcony for some good testing time at the Willow Springs Balcony.

Enter the Fan

 There comes a time when change is needed.  After many years of service and countless battles, the time has now come to retire the JDM Honda fan that has been so reliable for many years.  It's looking a bit dated, so I decided change it.

It's made in China, may be it will be as good the old JDM one (crossing fingers).  But at least it looks a lot nicer.  And instead of one, I actually got two.  This gotta be worth some points.

Would you believe this car started off as an Honda?  EF8 CRX to be exact. IMO probably the best looking builds i've seen.

86 FiESTa

Puppies are a great way to meet girls
 If you're into the FRS, BRZ, and the Corolla GTS (aka AE86).  Then you must know about the or at least heard about the 86 Fest.  Long time AE86 enthusiast and friend Antonio A.organized this event at the hella far California Speedway.  It had a little of everything to make everyone leaving happy.

AE86 Tech #86-28: Mission zero

 Let's check to be sure timing is zero.  Keeping the marks in line so that your 4AG always keeps firing.  And it's been sometime since I put anything car related.

Macross at 30

The cover to the Macross Memorial DVD Box Set ...

Can you believe it's been exactly 30 years (Oct. 3 1982) since the debut of Super Dimensional Fortress Macross in Japan.  A classic I can never get tired of watching.

Fuel pump for buck fifty

I guess with a domestic auto, I should expect the fuel pumps to go out more often.  Back in my shop days, I'd always change out quite a few fuel pumps from GM trucks and vans.  Never really ran across Fords, hence another reason why I swayed towards the F150.  But now I eat my words since the pump on ol' red decided to bite the bullet, I guess in the end, it doesn't really matter who you get it from
