Grassroots drifting at its best. Rod from SPEEDHUNTERS blog has a sweet featurette on one of the local Canadian drifters Chris Scremin. Finishing third in the 2009 Drift Mania West Canadian series, he is one of the top drifters from the Canadian ‘West-Coast’. As a result, the hachi he masterfully pilots week-in week-out is a pretty rough and tumble affair. Rod writes:
As you can expect at typical North American grass roots drift event, the majority of the cars competing were S chassis of various types. But one drifter chose to break the mold with his choice of car and went in a more old school direction: his name is Chris Scremin and this is his 1985 SR-86.

This mid 80s Japanese car buying guide tv show called Car Guidance was found on Youtube. Apparently the format of this show was to have Japanese women review a car and tell everything about it (from a women’s perspective?). Apart from the common Laurel and Mark II-like saloons they also did an occasional sports model, like the kouki 1985 Sprinter Trueno GT Apex Twincam… Hilarity ensues after the jump!
Are you guilty of the kind of hoarding we see here? Towers of pristine Toyota Genuine spare parts boxes (with or without their glorious contents) and pristine untouched kouki Trueno front bars safely mounted high in the living room?
What is that first big step im talking about? Is it just getting a 4A-GE engine in your car? Is it your first track day? No this is that one big step that not everybody embarks on and only very few can really say they got it right.
