Heart Transplant

P1210673One of my buddies wrote off his Silvia S15 recently. He got himself 2 S14s to replace it. The first had a Tomei Power Complete 2.2 litre engine but the body was scrap. The second was an engineless body. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see what needed to be done.

Love Rock 4 @ Trust 55–Takasaki (2011-10-09) Live Report of sorts… PART 1

I am whole once more…


I have been waiting a long time for this day. I forgot how frustrating a normal car could be. but thankfully that is no more. Getting hit by a bus is never good, but sometimes (with a little help from insurance) things can work out well.

Mizusawa Shrine

P1200394Located somewhere on Mt. Haruna’s thighs is the little village of Mizusawa. Famous for it’s udon and it”s shrine complex.  Being only 15 minutes away from my house I have made a number of visits to the various udon establishments there. Though I always knew the shrine was there, I never had any inclination to go there. Till my lady said she wanted to :p
