Our collective fascination with RWB continues, and Knoop recently visited the shop and posted up a great set about it on his Flickr HERE. I love the look of the shop, organized clutter. Selected shots below.
I was hoping for a *little* more dramatic redesign, but the more I look at this, the more I like it.
Now we just need a real 4-door Civic Type R in the United States. We missed the last one because we lacked potent enough gasoline, etc. I don't even care about the powerplant, leave it the same as the Si, I just want a factory lightweight with upgraded brakes and cooling. I am a ricer, I want RED SEATS.
I also want Champ White instead of this awful pearl white, but generally, I can't argue with the shape of the thing. They just took the last one and better-ized it.
I see meets like this in Japan frequently, wherein the primary attraction is less the gathering and more the fact that everyone brings the contents of their garages to sell and trade.
Why doesn't this happen in the US? I think the UMD meet this year would be a lot more entertaining if people had blankets covered in parts laid in front of their cars like you see at meets in Japan. Parts, diecast and plastic model cars, stickers, magazines, etc.
Our son was born toward the end of December, and so I've been a little too busy to post much on here. It's been excellent, and it was a real struggle to return to normal work/school/life.
It was 50 degrees in DC this past weekend, and so I fired up the Ruckus for the first time in about two months and went riding, which was nice. I miss summer weather and long rides though. Minkus of StandardFunctions fame is always posting incredible shots in the TotalRuckus pic thread, so at least I can ride vicariously.
