冬前の峠①

A friend of many people and local visitor of the touge had set up a small event for a handful of people to attend.  Mainly to gather friends and have a blast before the un-drivable  snow covered roads of winter came.   However, this event also marked his last day or night on the mountains with a specific car.

That car, a big body sedan, a Crown, and with various splashes of personal touches, lately had became quite popular on the internet and in magazines.

Japanese Alpina 7 Series

On a recent trip with Park and Watanabe-san to the SuperAutobacs near Kashiwa we encountered this stunner.  I’m not as informed as other when it comes to everything BMW but I haven’t seen anything of the Alpina line in America.  It was only the M series that stood out there.  But here in Japan it seems that the M is standard, at least I think Japanese people have a certain mind set where they want to have the best of the best, but who knows.  I occasionally see a 3 series Alpina’s and there is actually a guy that lives near me with a British Racing Green 5 series Alpina so I seem him once in a while.

Shinji-san, Tomo-san, and I made arrangements a couple of weeks ahead of time and it was totally worth it.

☆ Welcome to Rauh-Welt Begriff – My first visit – Part 2 ☆


I quietly left the party for 30 minutes to photograph one of the most amazing parking lots I’ve ever seen. Full of Porsches that are gems of one mans fine hard work. The only thing to trump these internet sensations would be a meet of RWB Porsches, which I hope to see eventually one of these days. Continue reading

An Early Morning near Yokohama

I’ve been meeting a bunch of new people in Japan and recently met a guy from San Diego who lives in Japan.  He asked me if I wanted to go out the other weekend.  It was a blast.

Took the train down to Kanazawa Bunko, met up with them, and headed to Ouji in their old Range Rover.
