MaydayGarage Does Japan Day One.

**Thanks to everyone for being so patient! If you didn’t already know, I’ve been fighting an illness that was supposed to kill me exactly one week ago, but i’m here, better than ever! Thanks for the warm wishes, and your comments, but i’m not going anywhere! –DD–**

I know, I know. It’s been over two weeks and we haven’t put up anything from our travels in Japan. Relax! Don’t forget we do this in our spare time! I hope everyone out there got a chance to capture some glimpses of the Tokyo Auto Salon from our favorite blogs out there! No doubt, this year’s TAS was not to be missed, but we want to show you our coverage of the event our way. So with myself and Danh, we managed to capture hundreds upon hundreds of images just to share with our followers. Over the next few days, we will show you exactly what we did in the seven days we occupied the great country of Japan, so sit back, wait for the images to load (there’s going to be a LOT), and take your time.

Man I don't even

Mr. Akagi loved to slap Danny's face for some reason. I have no idea why

Nostalgic Wednesdays: Mercedes-Benz E60 AMG “Limited”

Being a big fan of fast sedans, other than the 190e Evo, there’s another Merc that I would definitely consider to find someday; the Mercedes-Benz E60 AMG Limited. In 1990-1994 Mercedes-Benz cooperated with Porsche and built a high performance version for the W124 E- chasis, it was called the 500E. For the last 500 1994 500E’s built were branded “Limited”. 200 silver paint and 300 midnight blue. AMG walked in Mercedes-Benz Germany’s stable and  picked 12 500E “Limited” to be fitted with 6.0L M119 V8 engine.

If the 500E is a “medium rare”, and the E60 AMG is “rare”, consider the E60 AMG Limited the frozen meat mother of rareness.  The AMG tuned V8 produced 376 bhp at 5,500 rpm 428 lb/ft at 3,750 rpm clocking in 0–62 mph in 5.2 seconds. The results were so favorable that AMG considered building E60 for customers upon special request. The package included the tuned AMG v8, other AMG components, suspension, electronics and the optional 3-piece staggered OZ “monoblock” wheels.

Nostalgic Wednesdays: the Honda Unicorn

 The NSX-R GT,  I know that not everyone is going to agree with me on this but the GT version is one of the sexiest cars ever built. Though the rear air scoop may not be functional, my first mod if ever I owned one is to make it functional. Dreaming of owning one, I searched the Internet for pictures from proud owners and wasn’t really lucky with that. The NSX-R GT was a homologation special so there was a minimum production to be met.

 Rumor has it that there were only 5 built to meet the minimum requirements inorder to complete. Where did the 5 go? I believe they were sold to specific prospects for almost half a million dollars. Who were these prospects if you ask me? My guess would be; Spoon Sports, Raybrig, Takata, Epson and Autobacs.

Sushi Time with the Mayday Boys.

It’s no secret that we love to eat just like everyone else, so when Park Baker of HighTopFade suggested a place that had good sushi for a cheap price, we were ABOUT it. We took some photos, but I just wanted to share a quick video of what it’s like to be a piece of sushi at a conveyor belt sushi joint. Evan had the great idea of putting a gopro video camera on one of the plates, but left the gopro at the hotel. So our resourceful selves suggested using a cell phone instead to capture people’s reactions.

Lol, more to come.
