GX61 Corona Mark II Eagle Mask

September 9th, 2022

a car that i have been looking at purchasing quite seriously over the past 18 months has been in the range of GX51/61/71 however due to pricing inflation it has been a lengthy and patient process to await something suitable in all fields to pop up for sale. just like silvia’s kyusha (old cars) in japan have spiked even worse.

the newest car to add to the collection – 1983 GX61 Corona Mark II Eagle Mask. factory 1G-GE (NA) twin cam 5 speed manual.

i spotted this car around 5 months ago on car sensor by a little dealership located in aichi prefecture that specializes in GX’s, skyline’s and anything else in-between. over the years traveling and living in japan i have purchased a fair amount of cars through friends however i have yet to experience purchasing a car through a dealership in japan. for the most part dealers can be extremely expensive however my experience with PCA was nothing but a breeze and extremely thorough. if i remember correctly i drove out to the dealership roughly 4-5 times to check out the car thoroughly in their shop on the lift in hopes to make a firm decision if this was going to be something i wanted to pull the trigger on or not.

a very simple car that has very low km’s, no rust and has been looked after very well. amazing and simple suspension setup on SSR mark iii 14x9J – 27 14x10J -38 (A disk). very excited to build this into something absolutely pristine and exciting.

KANSAI ALL STARS 2022

August 28th, 2022

the lead up to summer every single year in japan is by far without a doubt the busiest and craziest time of the year due to multiple events clashing together, one being kansai all stars in which for the most part everyone involved in this sport does what they can to prepare both the car and mentally for this event.

this year is my 4th year in a row driving this event, qualifying 1st for nara prefecture 2-3 weeks prior to kansai all stars at the end of july had put me in a good, somewhat confident mood for this years all stars!

i have stated this before on the blog but want to re-write it to give a little insight on how the event works and ran over the course of the day:

roughly 128 cars who attend the event.
– 5 minute practice sessions within your prefecture
– 1st session of qualifying which runs for 10 minutes (approximately 12-15 cars in each group and a total of 3-4 go through to the next round)
– 2nd session of qualifying pending you made it through the first round which once again goes for 10 minutes and 3-4 cars once again go through to the 3rd and final round of qualifying.
– lastly before the tournament (top 12) is the 3rd and final round of qualifying
– tournament (top 12) which is the battles but tanso (single runs only). this is the part that is usually shown on the kansai all stars videos on youtube released every year.
– prefecture dantai (5 cars together)
– super dantai where anyone is free to go out and take place in the extremely high number of cars running all together sun as the sun sets and the event is finished.


this year i managed to get through practice, 1st, 2nd and 3rd qualifying into the tournament (top 12) up against naoki nakamura then into top 6 against fukuyama and then into top 3 (finals) with nakagawa, hiro and myself finishing in 1st place.

below is the youtube video from the day – all outside footage from morning to PM – giant thank you to macey and keisuke for all the footage. photos are by keisuke, drift tengoku & cooper. i will do my best to be a little more mentally prepared next year to get some onboard footage.

a very large thank you to each and every single one of you lovely customers, fans, supporters globally who watched the kansai all stars live on youtube along with the insane amount of lovely messages showing love and support. this was a day i will never forget and i think will never feel real no matter how much time goes on. i will continue to keep pushing the limits with this brand and driving along with day to day life. level up forever, loveee always, caseyyy x

trying to put a lot more effort into onboard filming for my training and memories for sure however also each and all of you’s viewing pleasure. there are lots of RAW onboard and outside videos on the SHIRTSTUCKEDIN youtube including this first day back at meihan sportsland c course in the 3037 S13 in 10 months. another complete RAW edit with some outside footage to match some onboard runs. summer is definitely here in japan, drove the entire day slowly trying to ease back into the groove of how responsive and quick the car only running the car on low low boost for the entire day. as always, enjoyyyy! thanks @macey14 for the outside videos you legend! x

ROB’S AE86

May 19th, 2022

incase you missed the last photo set of rob’s AE86 here well here is another set i wanted to get up that was taken on the same day through the countryside of nara & mie prefectures in film. usually the black NA S13 or any of my personal cars are used for campaign look book shoots to feature any kind of products, stickers & inventory that are readily available to our upcoming releases. rob’s timeless 86 was also a perfect, timeless looking car to shoot too before it was unfortunately sold on.

ROB’S AE86

January 5th, 2022

few days into the new year spent the day out with rob and his newly purchased levin coupe exploring the hills of nara and mie prefectures. shot mostly film today of some new goods coming very soon to our line of goods for SHIRTSTUCKEDIN which will be developed and released sometime late this month. it was super refreshing to get back out in a street registered, photogenic 1980s machine and take some photos – enjoy these few digital selects from a cold winters day in the mountains of kansai, japan x
