The kids went out for a drive…

Over the last holidays was surreal. I had my first ever go, as a passenger, on a super sports car. After the ride, it took me some time to come back to this world.

おしょがつにとてもすばらしことおこりました!!!!!

A good friend came over to invite me to take some pictures of his carsss and I wouldn’t miss this chance for nothing. He lined up all the cars and ask our kids, ”which do you want to ride?” our son said, ”well as I’ve already rode on the blue Lotus, the gray one is fine.” And off they went. They were all smiles!!

After that he took me for a drive, unforgettable. I don’t think that it could ever have this experience in Brazil unless I was a millionaire.  Enjoy the pictures.

Taking the Nozomi Shinkansen and relaxing on my journey of 353km.

Had to moved across 5 carriages because the reserved seat was at 4-16-E not at 15-16-E. Guess it would have been ok to just take any of these no reserved seats in this carriage.

Honda Civic. For the sake of JDM mods.

Will I ever be crossing that bridge on my Impreza… Hang on, will I ever have an Impreza?

Tunnels and tunnels.

Yep, another Z.

That’s a way much faster.

So safe in Japan. People leave their stuff and go away, then come back and the tablet is still there. I stayed at a dormitory where a bunch of dudes share a room with some others, more or less, 70 dudes and leave their PC, tablets, all gadgets changing overnight in a socket on the corner of the room. Wow!

Kyoto!! As I stepped outside the station and headed to the Sauna de Verde a Lancia welcomes me in class. Couldn’t get a shot though.

Then I was chased by some of my fellows.

Subarus, Subarus, Subarus!

Had to take a picture of this pole with the Renault in the background.

Lots of cool cars were going down this road so I decided to follow the flow and more and more cars would drive down. Porsches, BMWs, old school Zs. Then there was this Gs Prius with this tiny “disabled” sticker. Go for it man, get a proper disabled sign and stick it on. There’s nothing to hide.

Then I had to go back and get some food. On the way, there was this shop Tomei Car Esthetique . The staff, a very kind and young dude, explained about the company and the service. I asked wether there could be a place to eat for car lovers and he said that round there, not at all, I would probably need a car to go, I guess.

Well, I was getting hungry so across the street there was this shop with a sign,”we have menu in English” so that’s were I went. Also, they had a delicious vegetarian meal which filled up pretty well.

Not so sure about what they do but something to do with cars.

At the dormitory, best I could do.
Good night!

Mitsubishi Mirage

This month we are having two national holidays on Monday which gives some people a three consecutive days off. Ours started on Sunday though it is still very refreshing. I decided to go play football with some friends.

Anywhere we will have to deal with a little bit of traffic jam but it’s Sunday so the Sunday’s Ride are all out.

IMG_0102.JPG
This is the first time to see a sedan type of the series.
Just now looking a the picture, I realised the black Crown(?) Nice set of alloys and fairly good stance.
If the Pulsar is coming back, should we expect Mitsubishi to revive the Mirage, too?

Nissan (Primera?) Sunday ride

Today, we spent most of the day indoors at a friend’s house. On the way back home, we found this.
今日はおともだちのいえにずっといました

You really don’t see many of these cars on streets. Hoping to meet the driver and have a talk.
この車たまにしか見えない。またあたらおはなしおかけます。
