Random Snap: A Datsun Gem for Sale.

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.

Bond wishes.

From The Outside Looking In: A Texan’s View Of FormulaD: Atlanta Pt. 2

In part one, I kinda went over how my past experiences with FormulaD were, all on a high note. Being at FormulaD Atlanta was something else. It was like what I remember from the Houston event, but on some serious roids. They say everything in Texas is bigger, which for the most part is true, but I gotta hand it to Atlanta, they knew what was up.

This Falken girl was SMOKING HOT, just like all day friday at Road Atlanta

Coming in HOT!

Formula D: A Chameleon Preview

As we continue to plow through photos from this past weekend at Formula D Road Atlanta I would like to take a minute to sit back and share this bad-ass Silvia S15 with everyone.  Formula D’s main event was held this past Saturday, but Friday consisted of the top 32 qualification for Saturday’s battle.  When all was said and done with the qualifiers, the top 32 professional drivers got to go at it, literally, for 2 hours on the track at night for a practice session.  It was truly an awesome experience because the character of the cars change COMPLETELY once the sun passes the horizon.  One car that expresses its character in such a drastic way in the heat of the night is Michihiro Takatori’s Drift Emporium S15. Aside from wild supercharged Titan V8 that is jammed in that bay, take a look at this brilliant chameleon paint job.  Damn this is gangster!

I only had one chance in this lighting to catch the various changes in the paint as this car raced by.  Displayed below is six different shades of the paint through the night light, however there was easily 10+ colors.  I just didn’t get them all.  For all of the hardparkers out there, this is how chameleon paint should work.

Hello Green!

Hello Green!

 

Now if that isn’t an awesome chameleon job, I don’t know what is.  Amazing!  If these photos gave you the whining sound of that supercharger and rumble of that massive V8 under that hood, you would definitely need a change of undies.  Stay tuned for the rest!
