I bit the bullet and gave my new old car a thorough workover (I mean paid someone competentto do it that is): major service with new timing belt, plugs, battery, trans, brake and steering fluid, new Brembos, new Michelins and a complete replacement of the rattly steering.
I built this into the price I paid, so now my 2012 car with only 24k miles (38km) has cost a total of $16k US.
I think about driving it when I'm not driving it. Recommended for forty-something children everywhere:
. Last week i had an idea, sent it to Spoo. He said "that Shit is Crazy!!!!"
The following day, i had the amazing luck of meeting Alain (pictured)at the front desk. He sat with me at a table, while i explained who Brian was to us, and what we are doing. He says "that is not an issue, we would be happy to do that. ￼
Today, i went back in. Sadly the GTR was out doing it's thing. But the research and development team were in. The guys who prototype their badass cars, and their products that make the market. The elite of the elite. They are the coolest, most humble guys. We got together around the same table. Had a fun chat, and they all signed it for Brian. Even the international products and marketing guys got in on it. ￼
Here is the vid again of their car, the worlds most badass D1 Spec GTR:￼
And signed by the Development Team.
This one of a kind, virtually impossible to get, piece of JDM History belongs in a frame in any car guy's garage or living room.
Highest bid on this via pm gets it, payment made to Spoo. Will post out of Tokyo. Don't miss out on this shirt signed by some of the the Elite mechanics at TRUST.
Big thanks guys for doing this for Brian. And an extra big thanks to Alain. For making this happen. ￼
