Making a tire rack

Attempt #1
As cool as hording tires can be, it's a pain trying to navigate through the garage.  So I went to home depot, bought some wood and built a quick and easy tire rack.  It didn't make much of a dent, yeah I own lots of tires, I decided to try  my hand at carpentry.

Rare Club4AG

Back in the early days of Club4AG, parts for the AE86 was difficult to come by.  If you wanted some cool parts, you had to look to the other side of the pacific, Japan not China.  One of the big things at the time was doing 20 valve swaps.  The only down side was a proper header or lack of.  But Moto from Club4AG contracted Techno Spirits boss Kumakura san to a make couple headers for the left hand drive cars.  I forget how many went into circulation but I do remember 16v and 20v versions being made.

Macross World Convention 2013

Just like my 80's Corolla, I like my 80's anime.  Macross is tops on the list next to Robotech.  After missing a few years, I finally remembered to mark the calender for this event.

The outskirts of Los Angeles

There's not many places that I can cater to hobbies like this place does.  Way back, when I owned a black 1st generation 4Runner (aka Black Mamba) I would go cross rivers, catch some air, and play in the mud.

A few miles further up the road, I took the 80's corolla (aka Silver Surfer) up for some spirited runs through it's many corners, pretending to be Takumi on a tofu run.

In between the two spots is a range where I can stop and have a call of duty moment.
