I love these guys!
You know what really grinds my gears? When people assume things. It’s the most annoying thing in the world. Like when people assume I don’t want ice cream because I’m asian and all asians supposedly are lactose intolerant. Or when people categorize any type of electronic music as “techno”. Or even when a stranger comes up to you and asks you where to score weed because you are at a liquor store. It’s pretty stupid, I’d say.
This goes also into the realm of the import world, where people like to characterize certain cars and styles based on what they hear. For example, when I asked some people at a restaurant and bar where I could find the owner of this black and flush Honda, they looked at me as if I didn’t know what I was looking at. “Oh, you mean that black S2000? Yeah, it’s not flush, I thought you were talking about another car,” said one onlooker. Sigh. Guess I should of just said “that black and super badass Honda”, that would of probably eliminated some confusion. Good thing me and Mikey found Nick, the owner of this pristine AP2 S2K, later that evening, or heads would have rolled (I kid).
Among BMW enthusiasts, one of the most desirable cars is the 2002tii. On one Saturday afternoon, I had an arrangement to meet up this guy and buy his wheels. After inspecting the goods I bought, we had a small chat about his current project; a 2002tii. He owned a mint 98′ E36 m3, had to sell it for a non-running condition 2002tii and bought a beat-up 92′ Accord for daily; That’s how desirable the 2002tii was. What makes this compact German so wanted by most? Here are some little known facts about the 2002tii.
The BMW 2002tii was built from 1968-1976. It was an evolutionary 2-door sport sedan (2-door sedan?) that spurred to the creation of the 3-series. Introduced in the US, the 2002tii became one of the 1st “cult-cars” and was one of the reasons why the BMWCCA was born. It was BMW’s lifesaver from a bankruptcy and it marked a name for BMW in the US.
Forgive my lateness. I actually forgot it was monday. But here’s a cool car we found at our recent Wek’Fest Pre-Meet at Baker Tuning!
Have a great week everyone!
Another great video arises…
We almost missed this video that was posted on our Facebook page. I just so happened to browse through what FB thought was spam, and found this awesome video made by Mark Razmandi. Enjoy!
**edit: Apologies for all those trying to view the video through their mobile device, it will only play in non mobile versions, i.e. computers**
Don’t forget to look below this post for our final part 2 on the Wek’Fest Pre-Meet! We’ll see you on the Lonestar Run October 14th at 10am!
Something cool we found on our MaydayGarage Facebook Page!
Big thanks to Dennis Nguyen for shooting this quick clip of our event!
Yeah, that’s a lot of adjectives and one super lengthy name for a car. If it were entirely up to me (which, let’s not kid ourselves, it is, but we have a lot of readers with short attention spans), I would have described it with no less than 15 different adjectives, because even then, it wouldn’t be enough to properly describe Jorge M’s fantastic TechArt GT Street RS 911 GT2RS.
- 74 Celica GT
I visited an old friend of mine who owns a car shop. He had a collection of old SA RX-7s where he had 1 project build and probably 3 parts cars. While catching up with life, an old guy walks in asking for an oil change; then I was stunned, as I was watching a red 1st gen Celica coupe enter the ramp. I smiled as it was being prepped to be lifted and said to my self, “Man, that is a beautiful car”. 36 years and the style is still appealing. Not only it was a beauty but it also packed a punch with its well kept 2.0 4cylinder, ohhh! it sounded so nice. Even if it was dubbed as the “Japanese Mustang”, the 1st gen Celica will always bring a smile to my face. Just like the meaning of its name, it is definitely “celestial”. Here are some 1st gen Celica “eye-candy” i found online. Enjoy!
- so sexy
- see the Mustang resemblance?
