Amongst the jdm community, the Honda scene is probably the largest and most represented; go to any car show whether it be a jdm showcase, stance meet or even just a general car show, Honda’s will be strewn about at every corner, vtec abound. As a result, building something fresh in a scene so vast is no easy feat, variation is one thing but standing out from the slew of Eg’s , Ek’s and dc2′s modified in every direction is quite the challenge to undertake. Now if you’ve been following jdm-culture for a while you might recognise this Del Sol from a feature we did last year, but for those of you who are new, this is Warren’s 95 Crx Del Sol and, from all accounts, his modifying journey over the last year has certainly not been easy.
As an auto journalist, I am always on the look out for the unique and the unusual, something that says “Im different yeah im different (2 Chainz voice).” Ask any true car fanatic and they will tell you that Hotwheels was their start to a life long passion or the Petrol Abyss. Ivan Mejorado is no exception to this; his passion for wagons started with a 2001 Subaru Outback. Even though a Gt Mustang Coupe was his first car, the abundance of space fueled his love for wagons and uniqueness.
The first generation of Subaru Impreza has become somewhat of an icon among car enthusiasts, engraved into the minds of those who witnessed the intense battles waged in the stages of world rally with the likes of Colin McRae and Carlos Saintz at the wheel in the Japanese domination era of rally in the 1990s. The first generation shape matured well over its 8 years in production, culminating in arguably some of best looking Imprezas in 22b and rb5 guises; however when the second generation “bug-eye” was launched in 2000 it caused quite a controversy, it looked polarizing to say the least and, if you ask even the Subaru faithful, it has a cult following not universal acclaim.
They say you can tell a lot about a person based on how they keep their car, well I guess this means Gil is a clean 2000 4Dr Rally Red Honda Civic LX sedan that runs as good as it looks. With that said where do we start? The car is immaculate , the exterior has front and rear bumpers from 96-98 sir as well as a 96-98 sir front lip and folding mirrors.
Now as I’m sure virtually every car enthusiast will be aware, JDM fan or otherwise, the Toyota Supra is one of the great 2 door RWD coupes to come from the land of the rising sun. In stock trim it is a supremely capable and fast car with the MK IV probably being held in the highest regard amongst fans and road testers alike. The base platform with the now legendary 2JZ engine is also one of the most versatile for modifying with a breadth of ability few cars can match: drifting, drag racing, time attack, daily drivers and, as with the red monster here, ridiculously quick street builds.
We draw inspiration from every direction when building and executing our art forms, Every build is unique and when completed reflects the hard work and dedication that was put in. This 240z infront of you is not your average s30 chassis but that of a BNR32 GTR, or the Nissan R32 as many like to call it.
