Part 14: New Shoes!!!
So may have seen this pic a few entires back:
I finally struck a deal with my long time friend John. You may have seen his car in the most recent issue of JNC and also as a feature in Super Street, he owns the black '77 C210 HT "Japan".
Luckily for me he went a different route choosing Longchamp Black Limited XR4's
It's funny how far back me and him go. When I first met him he had stopped by a my friend's import tuner shop (CCR Motorsports) for parts and pulled up in a 1997 Infinity Q45 done up as a Y33 Nissan Cima. He had an all out JDM, VIP Style, Nissan Cima before anyone in the US!!! The car debuted in 1997 and he had this car done '98 or '99!!! He was way ahead of the game. As of late, people are barely scratching the surface of VIP Style in the U.S.
Ironically I had my Hako in the U.S. before he finished his "Japan" a year later AND he sold his Q45/Cima in '06 while I was stocking up Cima parts to bring back to the U.S. to build my own VIP car.
This is how she looked in 2008…I've had her since 2007 and I've seriously thinking of selling her…
Anyway back to the Hako. Here are he first pics I took with her new wheels and rubber…
You know what's funny is I just realized that I have to thank Toyo Tires for the tires!!! Not that I didn't thank them (this was back in '08), but I completely forgot that a friend of mine at CCR got me in contact with someone from Toyo and they gave me these tires to do SEMA and few other shows for them!!!
Well thats all for now…until next time…Part 15: Hako and Japan Shoot!!! Don't miss it!
