Theme Tuesdays: Honda Accords

3

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: Honda Accords

Growing up my mom had a 1988 Honda Accord, it was maroon and pretty ugly but it had flip up headlights which always intrigued me a little bit. Beyond that though not much about the car or Accords in general interested me for years to come.

As the rice phase passed and Accords got cleaner and cleaner they started popping up on my radar more often and lately seem to be a quite popular platform for the stance/flush crowd. Coincidentally my mom just picked up an 09, maybe I will have to drop it on her when no one is looking.

I was going to organize this by generations but I’m not really up on my Accord generations so I did them from oldest to newest best I could based on look…

Clean straight foward CB, the pin stripe around the trim is quite nice
I'm normally not a fan of car bras but this car is pulling it off well
Every car so far has had a roof rack, unintentional I swear
My gf thinks I am crazy for liking Accord Wagons
I see this Wagon all the time in the summer at the skate park
Mesh and dish can never fail
Joey from the Chronicles had a sick ass accord on Works
VIP styled Accord, nice fitment
More racks
That's a big lip
Cali style
One of the cleanest Accords I have ever seen
Key Chain's sixth gen has been making its rounds on the internet
And for good reason these MB battles look great on this car
Local sixth gen at import fest
One half of the Tucson duo behind the lens the other in front
Another Accord sitting on battles
If your roads look like this slam it to the ground
Great looking shot great looking car
Hawaii once again showing us how it's done
Never seen this color before, it's quite nice
This gives me ideas for my moms newest Accord

Lucky number Slevin

This morning my gf and I realized the fatal flaw of the standard alarm clock, you have to set it.

Luckily I’ve had these photos uploaded since last week when I was going to post them until something else came up. I don’t really know a lot about this car other than the fact that its a build from Portugal shot by

The car is really, really, clean and rocks that classic black and white color scheme that just works so well on these cars.

Clean and period correct
Nothing over done here
Nice ass
Going for speed
Going for style

While I would love to link to a buildthread on this car I actually can’t find it anywhere. However has got a ton of other rad automotive photography to keep you amused so be sure to check it out.

For example:

Gotta love how calm both of them are
And boom goes the dynamite
Love to see e30 m3s on the track

Finally if you have not seen the movie go do that, it’s great.

WTF Friday: Random Weird stuff

1

All of the images and video in today’s WTF Friday post are pretty random but they are all loosely automotive related and pretty weird so up they go.

I’ve also added a flashback Friday portion to my Friday posts to shine some light on older content some of the new readers might not have seen.

The Barrel Bike

I can’t imagine what this would be like to take down a hill… probably loud and somewhat out of control.

It's got a cup holder! my e30 didn't even have one
Those kids are jealous

Random Images

Just some stuff, you know.

Haha vut?
Bangbike
I could ask you guys wtf kind of car this is but I won't do that to you...

Tight Garage

sent me this one and it’s actually kind of sad and awesome all at the same time. It’s cool to see that this guy is working with what he has and figured out a way to get out of his car right into his house, I wonder how long it took to get this dialed.

Flashback Friday

Since I have a decent amount of back content that some of my newer fan base might not have seen I have decided to add flashback Friday paragrpahs in the standard WTF Friday fare.

Today’s Flash back friday post is: Proof that suspension can make anything cool, a post about a local maxbimmer.com member who has been working on this Lada in Russia.

Is this Lada hopeless?

Site Updates

I actually found some time to put the mobile theme on last weekend so that’s pretty handy (at least for me). I’ve also been ed by to test out there and I might try it out on a few pages and see how it effects performance and usability. I don’t want this site to look like a Nascar so I’m a bit hesitant to start stuffing ads all over the place but we will see.

Other than that its business as usual, traffic is steady and I bought a box of envelopes for sticker shipments. TGIF!

The Infamous Project E36 is lower than the rendering

Chris Savard’s double 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.

The inital rendering
I've never seen someone match their wheels to their trim before works really well
E36s always tuck so hard in the rear
Notice that the splitter also matches the rims

Chris has just into the shop so be follow updates on that at theinfamousproject.com.

Wrong side of the tracks

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.

This looks similar to Dans Jetta which I posted in readers rides
Probably the most clearence this under carriage has seen in a long time
Nice raked stance

Winter Wednesdays:Icy Typhoon

7

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.

Awd would come in handy in these conditions

Until I own one of my own feel free to watch this review from Motor Week review 1992:

Learn to love the Typhoon!

Readers Rides: SSgt Phil B’s Aircraft Loader

7

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.

SSgt Phil B ed me in the comments of the Stickr’d post asking how he could get some stickers to throw on his hydraulic equipped Air Force Loader and contributing photographer Keven Soldo covered the cost of the stickers to make it happen.

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.

For a vehicle that spends it's time in the Desert it has surprisingly good stance

Wonder what its like to drive at full height
Fatlace and myself holdin it down
The clear bit was removed after these pictures were taken
How wide you guys figure these wheels are?
Phil ride that's waiting for him at home
And the man himself

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!

If you want a set of your own stickers click the donate button at the bottom of this post and I will get them out to you asap.

Alternatively you can wait until my next contest/challenging question.

Theme Tuesdays: Vintage Lowrider Extravaganza

5

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!

Photo Scans

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

Drift Build Updates

2

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.

Pats new modified cross member, welds are looking solid
Modified oil pan
Well there's your problem
Motor tear down begins
Internals laid out for rebuild

Ryan’s sr20e30

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.

Since the bay has a complete wire tuck all of the wiring is actually in the glove box
Nicely done trans cross member
Exhaust work under way
Intercooler piping nearly complete
Late model bumper swap
Boso esque exhaust?

Pats build is basically a exclusive but if you want to follow Ryan’s build you can do so and
