Project Jetta Part 7

Well it's time for another installment of what has Gregory done to his Jetta.  We're on part 7 and a lot has been done since the last part.  Well OK maybe not A LOT but I've done some stuff that is worth noting at least. Bought some new windshield wipers as the freebies are already shot.  Still have to put them on though they are sitting in the trunk still.  And that is were a lot of stuff has happened with this update.  Well that and the wink mirror.

Himegami Gadget

Here is another, from what I've seen, great automotive related manga from the great mind of Asamiya Kia and this time it's aimed at the JDM tuner market.  Himegami Gadget (姫神様ガジェット) is the story of a super cute female personality that resides in the hero's car, in this case a Subaru Impreza WRX STi, that can transform into a giant robot to battle it out with cars that can also transform.  Yup that's right take a little bit of Wangan Midnight, Transformers and add a slice of fanservice mix it all together and you have Himegami Gadget.

Kanojo no Carrera

I posted about Kanojo no Carrera on my anime blog several months ago and didn't copy it over to here because I didn't think it really belonged but after thinking about it some more I've decided to include this blog post (updated as well) from the anime blog and add later a post about another automotive manga that interests me called Himegami Gadget from the same author.  So without further ado here is my old blog post about the best darn Porsche themed Manga ever.

 So the other day while looking for more Japanese Porsche Porn I came across a meet up called the Porsche Central Meet and one of the cars there was a Pink Strosek Speedster.  Surrounding that Porsche were some Anime looking Standies with a plaque that had a bit of English on it.  It said My Favorite Carrera.  So I did a bit of digging using that word and came up with a new favorite Manga that for me is a must read and something that I really wish they would turn into an anime.  That Manga is Kanojo no Carrera (彼女のカレラ) or in English My Favorite Carrera.

Stop Mechanophilia Comments Now

Excuse my rant but I gotta just say....  If this picture were posted to Facebook today I can guarantee that you would find an assortment of the following comments.  OMG that car makes my pants tight.  Oh man that car made me mess my pants.  Oh yeah I just came looking at how hot that beast of a car is.  I came. I need to clean myself.  Spooge! I need to clean my monitor now. I could go on but really I think you get the point.  More and more you see those types of comments popping up everywhere cars are being discussed.  And I find this trend disgusting and mindbogglingly stupid.  Why?  Well when I read comments like that the first thing that comes to mind is this horrid picture.  Yeah NSFW by the way.  Oh and in my mind that makes you totally look like you have Mechanophilia, congrats I hope you enjoy that tailpipe.

Autocross: Oct. 30, 2011

Lotus Elise One
Well it's that time of the year.  Autocross is over and done with for the Snake River Region until some time in late March next year.  The last event weekend was held on the big lot at the Idaho Center and while the event was Saturday and Sunday once again I went along to film on Sunday.  This time I brought something new to play with myself.  Wait that didn't sound right.

RWB Invades America

I'm bummed that there are three, soon to be four, RAUH-Welt Begriff Porsche cars in the states currently and not a one of them is mine.  But I did get a couple cool stickers from them the other day and one of them is stuck proudly on my photography case.  In the mean time the three finished RWB cars are making their debut at SEMA and the fourth one is patiently awaiting it's turn to be built in Texas.
