This past weekend we were out at Powerfab Automotive for the dial-in session for the Texas drift cars for the 2011 season. Being from Texas we are pretty much familiar with most of the cars that rolled out and some even changed their faces for the 2011 season, one person inparticular was Robert Turnbow and his MX73 Toyota Cressida. When Robert rolled to the event with candy red literally dripping off his frame, we looked, and then smiled. Usually you catch people on the course with the latter generation 83 like our ol’ buddy Ameen but Robert decided to keep it old school with his x7…
I love it when I go through my hard drive to clear files just to find a few gems that I had forgotten about. The S30 Datsun Fairlady shown below belongs to Dorian Drewery out of Atlanta, at least I hope it still does. When I went to Formula D road Atlanta earlier this year with Mayday David we just happened to catch Dorian on the Georgian streets outside of a local drift event. Apparently this “Lady” was for sale at the time. If it was sold, the new owner is one lucky enthusiast. The attention to detail on this thing is pretty intense and I have some more pictures that I will put up later on.
Jesse: [saying grace] Dear Heavenly… uh…
Jesse: Spirit. Thank you. Thank you for providing us with the direct-port nitrous… uh… injection, four-core intercoolers, an’ ball-bearing turbos, and… um… titanium valve springs. Thank you.
Dom: Very nice.
Letty: He was praying to the car gods.
Thank your local tuner! Have a safe Turkey Day, everyone!

Check out our new intro for our upcoming videos!
A Mayday acquaintance recently purchased a mean ass NA and this one happens to remind me of his. Damn this shit is majestic.
I’ve always told myself, if I ever end up with an S13 240sx, I would make it as clean and simple like the famous Koguchi Power 180sx. Nothing to me looks more street style than his car as it was in early Drift Tengoku (Doriten aka Drift Heaven) magazines. The simple classy OEM style body is something overlooked in today’s drift world filled with enormous body kits and double decker wings.
This is the video found in one of the earliest Drift Tengoku videos ever released.
