Its off season for us. Not much on the docket. Dan is working away on his Caddy, Adrian on his motor build, I’m looking for a new car, Mauncho is shopping for items for his new ride, and a few other things in the works. That’s about it. Nothing major and no real progress in the last few weeks. The start of winter is usually the lull before the winter builds start going. Headed over to Dan’s in the winter beater. The Subie will not be seeing summer anymore, good riddance. Still dumped though. :)
Dan and Geoff decided to build on a smaller scale. 1/24th to be precise. I sort of wanted to join in too. But I have issues with patience….I have none. I’d end up tossing the kits out after a few days of painting, gimme Minichamps and Autoart die-casts over these any day. I MIGHT end up changing my mind later though.
Dan bought a 993 GT3, Tom Kristensen DTM car and a VW golf. Geoff bought a Mike Rockenfeller DTM car.
Not a whole lot was accomplished as time was taking up watching Pacific Rim. Engine components mostly.
We were able to set up a few shoot with Matt over the week. This was our first one. Think it’s safe to say we started with the best. Us – “You sure you want to do this?” Anthony – “Ya” Us – “You should probably put your windows up” Anthony – “they don’t go up” Not verbatim, but that’s pretty much how we prepared for the fountain shots. Sometimes you just do what you have to, to get that shot. Glad Matt was there, as I forgot to take photos of this.
It’s a rarity for myself to be this attracted to old VAG content at H20i. It’s dat character. We’re glad to have met you Anthony, see you next year.
400hp+ DIESEL RWD RACEKOR. All of that deserves caps. Mind you it isn’t exactly production Mazda 6 base. Take a tube frame Riley Grand Am GX chassis an ALMS LMP2 Mazda SkyActiv 2.2L deisel and wrap it in a sexy as fuck sedan body. You have the 2013 Mazda6 Grand Am GX racecar. WANT. And just for the Canadians….Sylvain Tremblay who founded SpeedSource (the team prepping this car) is from the Great White North.
Matt Berenz AKA Deathlens is now working at Pfaff Tuning as their web promotor. These are some of the pics he’s taken in his first couple days. Lucky duck. The Facebook pages he manages are Pfaff Tuning and McLaren Toronto.
