CR – Expensive Weekend

August 11, 2012


I sold my GL145 and my CG125 to fund new leathers and a bike which is ready to race. I was searching around for some cheap leathers but NZ being what it is and myself being a pretty small guy I was having problems. A big ass sale comes up, and I jump on these, bargain. It’s more than I wanted to spend but with aspirations of club racing, it’s worth buying good protection first time. I also bought some radiator fans for the truck. Now I just have to wait for a good bike to pop up and I can finally get out there again!

I first have to apologise that the old server that I used to host my photographs off (my mothers) has stuffed up and now denies everyone access to view most of beeoneoneoh. I’m sure you would have noticed if you have tried to view the cream or any of my old posts. It sucks but the effort it requires to reupload and change the links to all 1300 odd posts that are broken is phenomenal. EDIT: Whilst most posts are still not working, I’ve re-hosted and edited some of the cream posts which have scans I’ve done.

Since the beginning of beeoneoneoh I’ve been fizzing on this car, in fact it was one of the first cars I ever posted about. I took some scans a long time ago now (where does it all go?) and I’ve rehosted them for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy my favourite Datsun 1200 Coupe below, follow this link to the original post then click the link in that post too (now fixed). It’s a desktop background size too!

510 Coupe

February 20, 2012

I’m so stoked. I was at Keisuke’s place the other night with Nick before we uhh tested his AE86 a bit. I was rummaging through his pile of Japanese magazines and found an old issue of Autoworks, a ‘Retro Car Special Edition’ and what did I find inside? More photos from my favourite car meet! There are always those cars, you know the ones, that are so awesome yet you can only find scraps of information and images of them. This meet is one of my favourites because so many good cars were in one place, most of which are hard to find pictures of. I posted about it herehere and here. The guys up front holding and raising hands? Total sunny bros.

There are too many good cars to post at once so I’ll spread a few of the captures over a couple of posts. This Sanitora gets first mention for being high in my favourites and if you look at the top photo you will see the Hayashi Street B210 Sedan too!

Callum’s KP

July 23, 2011

It’s been a long time coming but finally someone in New Zealand has built a killer KP Starlet. That someone is Callum Gooding from Christchurch. The K series has been binned and replaced with a 16V 4AGE, always a good move and I’m sure it goes much better now. The front struts have been shortened and T3 coilover sleeves have been added with 350LB springs to make up his coilovers; tein keepers hold it together. Cut down springs and KE70 rear shocks temporarily keep the rear on the floor and under those tiny factory gaurds live 13×7 (+7) and 13×8 (0) Hayashi Streets. Callum managed to find one of or even THE last set of 165/55R13 Nankangs in the country which really is the deal breaker here. I really am jealous of this wheel setup. Although Work Excels and SSR MK2s are cool I don’t think many wheels can be as classy and clean as the Hayashi Street in small sizes. One day I shall have my own set too.

Although it’s not certified for the road yet Callum said it’s on the way but only after he has tidied it up a bit. I’m sure you will have heard about the massive earthquakes Christchurch has been having this year; I can only imagine how his chassis is going to handle the torn up roads. Thanks Callum for sending in the photo, I think I much prefer it to any overly processed and posed photo. It sums up working on these cars quite nicely. To see more of this car, check out his build thread on OLDSCHOOL.co.nz.

CANDYALLSTARS Datsun 510

Here’s a few more photos of this totally awesome 1600 sedan because well, it’s awesome. One more in the link above too. Man 510 rear ends camber out when they’re low and this car is making use of every degree of it. Note the change between Hayashi Street CRs and Equip 01s. More 510 coming.

Full porn shot of my favourite Sunny truck. No fake wheels here.

Isuzu Bellett GT / YZ West / November, 2010
Innnnnn west Philadelphia born and raised… is all I think when I see a Bellett on the road. This incredibly clean looking example was opposite two pretty obnoxious Silvias in the car park of YZ West Circuit.
