Bio not provided
As a active duty person myself I definitely feel his pain. Whenever I'm deployed or stationed like I am right now here in Korea, literally the only thing I can think about is getting back home and prepping my car so I can get some seat time at my home track (Thunderhill, which I'm dying to try the new 5 mile version!). My car's not as legendary as a Hakosuka but it is what I'd consider a privateer time attack 1993 Mazda Miata which I've been developing over the past few years. like the Hakosuka it doesn't have much power, but boy does it punch way above it's weight class on a road course :)
Beautiful car. I'd love to build something similar someday, maybe a Mazda Cosmo Sport in a similar fashion sorta like this picture of a model that someone built

Yeah I was wondering the same. Pikes Peak and 24hrs Nurburgring are two events that I look forward to you guys covering every year but there was little to none this year.

I've always wanted to do a rotary swap in my NA Miata track car. Awesome to see one of the best drivers out there reppin the Miata! }Posted a few pics of mine to show support lol. Can't wait to see the finished product!

I'm just happy to see that Lotus has kept true and still uses a traditional manual gearbox rather than a flappy paddle one. They are becoming rarer and rarer which is the worst thing imo.

To add to my last comment, I always like a good slow mo dubstep drift video, but let me get some more of that rotary soundtrack!

ahh I was hoping there'd be video. Can never get enough of that bonkers 4 rotor
In my 20 car dream garage, a TVR Sargaris would definitely be in there. To me it is one of the best looking/sounding cars ever.

@familycar @MikeDonnelly well I'd really like to find a Mazda Cosmo and build it similar to this picture but I doubt I'd ever find one.

About damn time! I've been waiting ever so patiently for this and did not disappoint! I may have to snag myself one of these while I'm I've there, but it is my goal to find a '89 R32 GTS-T type M because everyone knows RWD is more fun
The year isn't over yet! The 25 Hours of Thunderhill is this weekend! I'll be there!

I know Sean fairly well and he's a super nice guy, also if you wanna get your hands on some rare JDM parts for your car he will hunt them down for you all for a fair price. He's also got an insane car collection, his newest acquisition being a Hakosuka. Unfortunately I wasn't able to make it to the show that day so Sean took my spot which ended up being for the best because my Miata isn't nearly as attention grabbing as his lol.

I've been following this build since it first started and is one of my favorites, Glad to see it finally got finished, it's awesome I really wish I had the skills to fabricate my own custom track car from the ground up.

That is so beautiful, can't wait to see and hear that with flames exiting the 4 rotor within!!

Should've chosen a track where he'd been able to actually use all that horsepower, with so many turns on that track it'd probably be a good equalizer between the Pagani and say.. a Miata? lol

I actually registered my track roadster for the car show, but I blew my head gasket at Willow Springs this past weekend. I got parts ordered already so we'll see If I make it. I hope so!

I always like a wild motor swap, but as far as my own vehicle i'd like to keep it in the family. It's my goal to do a 20b swap from a Eunos Cosmo into my Miata.

It just looks amazing from the drifting to the absolutely bonkers car builds, this event is definitely a bucket-list item for me as well as lapping the Nurburgring. If only i was able to do it in my own car..

I have so many options for 250 miles living in Northern California, if I wanted, I could hit one of the many Circuits like Thunderhill, Sears Point, or Laguna Seca. Or I could take an amazing mountain drive complete with gorgeous switchbacks. Maybe a trip to Lake Tahoe or San Francisco? Or maybe a little further north into the Redwood Forest for some awesome shots.

LS series no contest as far as performance and reliability in concerned. 2nd is Small Block Chevy (SBC). I love how universal they made SBC parts, where pretty much ANY SBC part will bolt directly to ANY SBC motor.
