Trying something new with my photos for this post!
So of course, the reason why I needed my car road-legal again quickly, was to be able to drive it to this year's R's Meeting put on by GT-R Magazine (and sponsored in part by Nissan as well). Hence the Tomica-like transport I wrote about last time.
Anyway, once I got the car safely back home I was still split about going. I usually don't like going to these meetings because there are so many cars and so you have to park far away, and I always worry about my car being out of sight. I mean think about it - the world's biggest GT-R meet is a great place for criminal types to come check out which cars they can steal next, right?
So I called in a few favors to make sure that I received the proper VIP entry and parking pass (Sponsor) and thus was convinced to take the GT-R down to Fuji. As a result, I found myself driving down with Dino at 0600 this morning to Fuji Speedway. I am sure he takes better pictures - check out his IG for more photos - but once we arrived, I took some photos as well.
This time however instead of focusing on one car or product, I want to just simply upload the photos I took and perhaps share what I was thinking as I took them. So here goes...
Here is where I parked. Bad photo, but immediately to the right is the Nismo booth. And yes that Ochiai-san watching me as I turn around to take this photo.
|Meanwhile, someone else is taking a close look at my car already...|
|All dry carbon!|
|Interestingly, not the usual purple blue Mine's covers but a bespoke green|
|Dry carbon hood and lip spoiler too!|
|Obviously good for a car going overseas. Want to make sure you can quickly change the oil each time without having to contact Mine's|
|Interesting. OEM Plenum in that same green color.|
|My answer - Ok, I guess?|
|And yes, we belong to the same exclusive ClubR33 owners club!|
|Fast and Furious, I guess?|
Anyway, enough photos for today. It is now 2300 and I am dead tired. More photos tomorrow, in the same stream of consciousness/wandering order!
