Buckle up, there are new bois on the block

Last week I went to the other side of the country (which isn’t that far if you know how small the country is) to take some pictures and shoot a video of these rather stylish cars owned by rather stylish kids.

Buckle up they call theirselves so I think you get the jist of what they like to do in their spare time.

As far as I know there are 4 cars which of one is currently under construction as you can see in the video below. The KE70.

The Daihatsu Charmant is still one of my favorite models of the brand.I fell in love with them ever since I bought one half a decade ago. Unfortunatly this one was very rusty and I ended up selling it to a friend of mine who had bought for skids until it was beyond saving. A real shame if you ask me. The car is now owned by another friend of mine who currently has stripped the whole car to save it.

This Charmant is the Altair one, Altair being the luxury model which also gave this car the two tone look.

It’s not the fastest car around but I do believe it has a lot of potential. You can easily swap a 4AGE engine in there since it’s a toyota based platform and shares a lot of parts with the AE86.

The blue miata that Leon owns is one of the best looking ones out here in the Netherlands the bodykit combined with the 14″ split wheels really make it stand out from the others around.

It has equip 01 on the front and Gallop racings on the rear. It also has a type-x spoiler on the trunk which fits nicely with the bodykit.

As you can see there is a pattern, they like small wheels and I can’t blame them. They look great and fit the cars really well. The silver mx-5 has 13″ wheels, SSR mk1’s on the rear and Advan a3a’s on the front.

Unfortunatly it started to rain heavily that day and we had to cut it short, but as you can see in the video it did result in a small drifting session.

I feel like these guys are a great addition to a increasingly better car scene here. Keep it up!

FullJPN’s pride, period correct PS13

I’ve been keeping an eye out for this car ever since the owner (Sidney, @goodvibesnicedrives – @fulljpn on instagram) imported his Ps13 from Japan. This man knows how to style a car the proper way. So of course when this car was nearing completion I poked him and asked him if he was up for a video/photo shoot.

The car currently sits on Longhcamps in the front and SSR MK3 in the rear with HSD being the brand of coilovers. The wheels are period correct and look great on this car.

The engine is a SR20DE which suits the old school style. It’s not the fastest thing in the world but boy does it sound like a happy and fun one.

PS: During this shoot we were sent away so many times, they even made a note of the plate number, “6 9 1 Right?” Right.

The front bumper(TBO) together with the chuki skirts really makes this ps13 stand out from others I’ve seen. And I know that Sidney is going to add a Bwave wing to the car but I actually really like the current spoiler.

Sidney is quite familiar at this location so he had a lot of great spots planned out, which turned out to be great ones.

Anyways I want to thank Sidney for being out there with me for this shoot and I want to thank Shiva for helping out as a support driver for the rolling shots.

And most importantly: Live Freely!

Levi’s E36

Levi’s Japanese inspired E36

Levi and I have known each other for a little while now and I’ve been wanting to make a short video of his car since forever. Although because of limited time from both sides it just didn’t happen.

We’ve found a spot in our schedules and finally made the video happen. This spot happened to be yesterday.

Levi’s E36 is inspired by Japanese culture and it’s running Musk overfenders with SSR professor wheels. This gives the car an awesome hotboy look which is very popular nowadays.

While shooting this video I realized how comfortable the car still was which was unlike what I thought It would be like.
It’s running Camaro shocks on the rear with 18k springs, crazy stiff you would think, but it’s actually not that bad. The car feels like any other E36 I’ve been in so far.


After the first skid Levi did, he told me that he just did his first transition in drifting. I wouldn’t have asked him to do such a thing if I knew he wasn’t experienced with doing it, but luckily it ended up being awesome footage. After some repeats for some more footage Levi nearly crashed close to a ditch and traffic sign. We laughed about the broken bumpermounts when hitten the grass and went home.

This car to me is what an E36 should look like sliding, Low, Stanced and Japanese inspired.

Thanks Levi for your time!
