Chris Savard’sdouble now triple build has been moving along ahead of schedule. The AC Schnitzer e36 is more or less complete, just awaiting a few final finishing parts, and the Mustang is next up for some mods followed by his Lightning. The e36 looks exactly like the rendering except for one minor detail, it’s actually lower!
The man behind the renderings actually thought that the height he rendered it was lower than Chris could actually realistically drop it.
Chris laughed at this and took it as a challenge, looks like Chris won.
Spotted this set of photos on via and I have to admit I was pretty impressed with the use of a fairly common location. Photos in train yards are nothing new but I have never seen someone drive on the rails like this before.
I couldn’t imagine doing it I would worry about driving off the rail and somehow getting stuck, that would be hard to explain not to mention embarrassing.
Now I know that some of you looking at this photo are thinking ‘whats so special about a square body s-10 Blazer/Jimmy in the snow?’ Well this isn’t just a square body s-10 Blazer (the best gen) its an honest to goodness ! While I am sure the modestly rated 280hp/360 ft/lbs of tq factory turbocharged 6 cylinder 4.3L powered Typhoon would be tons of fun in the snow, salty climates these things rust out faster than the electric gauges in standard Jimmy’s will fail.
Even though GM totally wussed out and never built anything quite like the Typhoon (or its s10/Sonoma sibling the Syclone) again these trucks will always go down in history as fast little s.o.b.s that could not only hunt down Corvettes of the same vintage but 300zx’s as well as Ferrari 348ts.
At 30,000 new these things were a steal compared to what else was availible at the time. Now I think they hover at around 12-15k making them an attainable dream car for me and if I ever do own one you can bet it will be lower, faster, and less fuel efficient than it came from the factory.
Until I own one of my own feel free to watch this review from Motor Week review 1992:
When I started this blog aside from the somewhat far fetched goal of going to SEMA I didn’t really have any goals set goals, I figured I would post and let things unfold as they will. Never in my wildest dreams had I imagined that one day stickers with my url would be next to a sticker on an army vehicle, on an army base, without someone going to jail.
Although never a goal, seeing this makes me feel very, very accomplished.
Shortly before Christmas I went to the post office, and after a bit of confusion about sending packages out to the middle of nowhere a few Grosirbajuanak url stickers were on their way to .
Yesterday Phil sent along some pictures of those stickers on the loader along with some stickers and it honestly made my week. It’s so cool to know that when he is on R and R from fighting for his country he takes time out to visit Grosirbajuanak and takes time out to me.
I’m not going to get into the politics/controversy/opinions/whatever about ‘the war’ as there is already enough of that as it is and this isn’t the place for it.
I will say however, that I hope everyone currently fighting for what the believe in make it back home safely to their families, friends, pets and cars.
Thanks Phil for being a fan and sending in these photos!
The concept of theme Tuesdays here on Grosirbajuanak is simple, every Tuesday I pick a theme and post a collection of vehicles with that theme that meet the stance criteria (modified suspension that suit the vehicles intent). This weeks theme Tuesday topic is: Vintage Lowriders
This one might be a little weird for some of you and if so I apologize but I fell asleep Saturday night watching the, woke up Saturday morning in time to watch Living with , and then yesterday after reading a I stumbled across some vintage pictures of vintage low riders.
I figured all of this was some sort of divine intervention telling me to post some real classic stuff for this weeks theme so I searched for some vintage low rider scans on google and this is what I dug up.
Hopefully you guys enjoy!
New pics of classic rides
Since these are all obviously classic material and non watermarked here are the threads/pages I got the pictures from:
Big shout out to all the people who scanned these and I can only hope that our generation documents our past as well and that it’s so fun to look back on later
Decided to check in on the two ongoing drift builds today; Pat from F20 ae86 build and Ryans sr20e30 build from . Both of these guys have been feverishly spinning wrenches to get these cars slide ready for the upcoming spring season if not sooner.
Pat’s F20 AE86 Build
Last we left Pats build he was working on reinforcing the uni body of the car and making the necessary modifications required to get the motor to sit in the engine bay. This time around he’s finished off most of the large fabrication items regarding mounting the motor and has shifted focus to getting the motor running.
Last we left this e30 the build was just starting and there was a long list of stuff left to be completed. Now it seems like things have been moving so smoothly in the mechanics department that a bit of time has been devoted to the aesthetics of the car.
Pats build is basically a exclusive but if you want to follow Ryan’s build you can do so and
When I was writing about this weeks totally unexpectedly popular post on the Boso Box I came across quite a few funny looking Boso cars. This one however is really something, the whole Boso thing makes me question what exactly is required to register a car for the streets of Japan…
I’m actually not even sure what kind of car this is a Nissan President maybe? So I guess this car raises two questions WTF is going on here and WTF kind of car is this?
Double the fun!
Got another feature lined up for the upcoming week or so and I am planning on installing the word press mobile plug in to make mobile browsing easier.
I think I will be around/near a computer for one of if not both of the days of this weekend so I should be able to throw up some Sunday Swag or Random Dopeness so drop by between drinks, food, fun and friends.
This has actually been on the about page for awhile but I figured that I should make an ‘official’ announcement since as of yesterday he is now an official student of photography. I ‘d like to welcome My friend Keven aka K.Sold aboard as a contributing photographer to Grosirbajuanak.
Keven, , is not new to the site at all. He has been contributing photos and Theme Tuesday ideas for awhile now, and comments quite a bit.
Aside from his work behind the lens he has been a big part in my continuing motivation to keep this little project going as we talk about cars basically non stop and while his current car is at stock height he has big plans for it. His old e36 high sided on a speed bump once so I know he has it in him to create another head turner.
Look for more photos with the K.Sold watermark to appear here on Grosirbajuanak and enjoy some of the work he has already sent in.
Pretty soon I am going to have to learn how to work my Rebel XT a bit better…
