RWB Hoonigan in Eurotuner

RAUH-Welt Begriff once again graced the cover of Eurotuner magazine for the March 2012 issue and while the issue is long since gone in the stores I picked up the issue when it first came out.  It's just the issue sat on the back burner for a while as I did other things and I only finally got around to reading it the other day and taking a couple snaps for the blog.

RAUH-Welt Begriff // Catalina



Remember some time ago when Nakai-san headed to Texas to build a RWB993R for Danny of Mayday Garage?  We haven't seen much of the car, save for a few grainy cell phone pictures here and there.  That changed this weekend at TX2K12 when Mayday Garage introduced the crowds, and world, to the lovely deep dark purple/burgundy wine color RWB993R named Catalina.  Enjoy the video I found and follow Mayday Garage for more updates.

Since I posted this there has been several more videos uploaded from the TX2K12 event I've posted all of them on the Facebook page and added them to the RAUH-Welt Begriff playlist on YouTube.

All Japan Supercar Club Meeting

America may have it's Cars and Coffee thing but in Japan their exotic car club meetings simply kick ass as these guys gather regularly and drive their cars and for the most part they do it for a good cause.  Like this last weekend when the All Japan Supercar Club got together at the seaside resort area of Laguna Gamagori for the first meeting of the new year. It took place on the anniversary of the the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami and the even raised money for more relief efforts.

Nagoya Auto Trend

We haven't even had our first car show here (now we have, but when I started writing this we hadn't) and they're already hip deep in car shows in Japan.  Another recent car show that caught my interest was the 10th Annual NAT or Nagoya Auto Trend and had cars both inside and outside.  And just a few Campaign Girls and Race Queens in attendance too.

2012 Miss Roadster Show

2012 Miss Roadster Show The Miss Roadster Show is always a great way to knock off the cobwebs from the winter cabin fever season.  And it's why I always hit up the Boise Roadster Show on Friday evening.  With the main staged crowded by a lot of people holding up their own video cameras, cell phones and cameras there were a lot of digital eyes on the stage to watch this year's 18 contestants strut their stuff on stage for an opportunity to take home a cash prize .

2012 Boise Roadster Show

Porsche Cabriolets So it's the middle of March and that means the first Idaho Car Show is going on and Friday night I was off taking pictures of cars and videos of ladies in bikinis for the 40th Anniversary of the O'Reilly Auto Parts Boise Roadsters Show presented by Les Schwab Tires.  Yeah that really is a long name which is exactly why I still just call it the Boise Roadster Show.  And like always there was plenty of the "Seen it already" cars with a smattering of "haven't seen that before" cars.  I was impressed by a few of them for sure.

Nostalgic 2 days 2012

I always say that Japan has some of the best car shows on the planet and if you like unique old school Japanese automotive goodness than look no further than the Nostalgic 2 days (ノスタルジック2デイズ) car show.  A haven for old school Japanese car lovers.  And it's not just for the old school Japanese cars either.  You'll find all sorts of automotive goodness at the car show and this year one of the star attractions (movie star and hell you couldn't miss the damn thing) was a large colorful dekotora truck.
