Wagon Love Re-ignited!!

Ok so I’ve been trying to sell my beloved wagon…and I just can’t, people call and I always seem to down play the car. Last night I had a call about it and my friend Chris was with me and after the call he had to laugh at me cause I was underselling the car so hard.

So yesterday I came across a picture of a gorgeous wagon with widened oem steelies that I immediately fell in love with and totally renewed my wagon love….my wagon still needs a new body but I’m willing to transplant it’s heart…

so it begins again 😛

“The New Style!”

So you may have noticed i change the style a bit, I wanted larger photos. This theme has all the options of the old but with a wider frame to allow bigger pictures…. which as you may have noticed that my blog is very photo heavy and the bigger I can post the pics the better.

enjoy

Phaze2 civic

It’s the undeniable new style. oem body, nice wide wheels (but not large, you won’t see a civic with anything larger then a 16″ wheel in this style), and super low.

the wheel choices these guys keep to are really nice, I’ve seen this one several times with slightly different set-ups and I always like what I find.

soo… here

Vans from japan, yeah they are

often i have an urge to buy a van, like a previa, and i tell my friends this and they often look at me like 400 pieces of lego just pored out of my nose…”what the hell is wrong your you?”.

So I figured I’d educate you all on what this van thing is about for me.
In japan it’s a big thing, some call it part of VIP tuning or some “bippu” thing…but whatever.

My personal favorite is the toyota previa. it’s a great bread box, and it looks kinda weird to some, but it’s RWD, it had an available supercharged engine, and also had an available 5-spd manual transmission. In north america it had a solid rear axle, but in japan it had an independent rear suspension. the solid axle isn’t all bad, there are lsd rear ends to be had from the toyota trucks as well as disc rear ends. I say buy one super cheap, toss in some coilovers are maybe even air bag suspension, then combine the supercharged engine with the 5 speed, and a smaller pulley and some cool wheels and enjoy. it would be a great parts runner/roadtrip car.

Here are some pics of the previa:

This Black one is the coolest to me, a great example of CLEAN!

 

and here are a few of the honda odyssey, stream, and a couple nissan vans.

These last 3 white ones have that newer blocky look that going on and I really love it…too bad most of the vans we get here are soo different from the vans the automakers offer in japan.
