More of Masayoshi Nagano’s groovy styling on another Nagano Koubou styled PS13. Looking forward to seeing what this garage from Osaka brings out to show the rest of Nippon on 2013 x

Masayoshi Nagano’s RPS13

March 29th, 2012

This, without a doubt is probably one of the grooviest looking RPS13s I’ve seen to date. I have had the pleasure of seeing this car in the flesh during my trip to Osaka last year. 99.9% of posts on this blog are shot by myself from my previous trips to Japan. However I couldn’t help putting these photos up shot by Mark Warhurst on his recent trip to the mother land.

He took quite a few detail shots which I regret doing last year. Here, you can see the amazing interior on Masayoshi-sans Onevia. In case you didn’t notice Nagano Koubou is a paint shop. The custom dash has been covered in fibreglass and painted in a custom marble effect using red film and black film to create the effect. Masayoshi-san was going for a 90’s look.

In the trunk are some spare skid wheels, Longchamp XR4s. Masayoshi-san definitely digs the lowdown シャコタン style and deep, dish wheels with plenty of pull.

Finally, a shot of the man in front of his personal creation. I really hope I get the pleasure of catching up with him during my next trip. Once again, thanks to Mark Warhurst for the shots.

Andrew Stepp’s S-Chassis

March 6th, 2012

Shirtstuckedin is almost 100% content we’ve shot over the duration of being in Japan. Over the 1.5 years Shirtstuckedin has been alive for we have managed to attract an unbelievable audience, one being Andrew Stepp from the United States of America and this is his groovy s-chassis. Myself, Ian and Andrew talk quite often and I couldn’t help but to not re-post this photo Ian snapped in Fuji Pro160c 200 film not too long ago. With such friendly people like this I’m more than happy to share what they have in their backyards half way across the globe. Be sure to check out Ian’s blog – x

D1GP Supermade Onevia

November 8th, 2011

During my time in Japan I have been lucky enough to be faced one on one with a few D1GP cars, I even attended the final round of D1GP Street Legal around this time last year at the Tsukuba 1000 Circuit, if you look back through the pages on the blog you’ll find heaps of snaps. I have to say it’s so awesome seeing a D1GP car nowadays such as the Supermade Onevia still rocking 15″ wheels. The amount of speed and grip this car has is mind blowing.

The car itself is just so photogenic.
