Well, in Sep we went to Fuji for the GTR Magazine Meet.
It was a great time, a ton of GTR's as you can imagine.
My friend Ken registered us to get our pics taken for the
special issue of the GTR Magazine, the Owners Collection.

There was a R1 BNR34 parked in front of us and the owner
was pi$$ drunk. He kept asking if he could buy my # plates.
His car was quite nice too. Oh well, here are the pics of me
and my friend Ken (kenfuruya) who visits this forum from time
to time. It is a rather good magazine, I hope to have new
wheels for this year's meet.

I got the mag about 2 days after it was released, it was
hiding in my computer room under paper work. I uncovered
it today so thought I would post it.

Looks like a good time was had by all..... You wouldn't happen to have a full picture of the red 33 thats half shown on your post. Its the same colour as mine and I might take a new direction in wheel colour after seeing this one. Thanks Bryan

Translation. :)

"I have to thank my wife for putting up with my self-centred demands!"

"This car was an LM Limited so that's why I bought it. The performance, and the Champion Blue color/colour were further factors, too. City driving and country outings don't quite hit the spot, so I take it out for track use too. This car is fantastic fun to drive. Work with the intakes, exhaust system and the computer give me enough performance, and for me this machine is a taste of the extreme. To be honest though, I'd like a little more power. Eventually I'd hope to take her up to about 500ps."

Wow, thanks Thrust. I really don't remember putting it in those
words, but that'll work.

It does sound a little strange in direct translation, but they have obviously re-written whatever you said in order for it to be interesting for Japanese readers. :thumbsup: But as you said, it works! (even in English) and the car looks great! :smokin:

I think a GTROC Race suit would be a bit more subtle than those shorts perhaps? :chuckle: Or did you wear them for a bet? :eek:

Just looked at the pictures again and didn't all LM's come with a carbon rear spoiler?
It is a CF spoiler. When I bought the car, the clear coat on the spoiler was
a bit weathered and chipped in a few spots. I took it to several places and
was told it could not be repaired. So at the last shop I went to, they told
me they could color match it, so I did. You can still still see the weave pattern
at certain angles. I wish it could have been repaired, but most shops said the
cf might be damaged if they attepted to rapair the clear coat, so Iplayed it safe.
You can still tell it is the OEM CF spoiler because of the lip it has.
