a masked man...

 was polishing all day long...why he doesn't take them to a polisher? "because i know which areas are more delicate and which parts need special care but they don't", shinya said.

who ate chex mix in my car?

 the dash panel of my duster wasn't working properly, for almost a year, finally shinya found a whole panel for me.


 and of course he installed it by himself. for me.

 after the installation, we went for a test ride. the panel worked perfect but i found those snack debris in between seat and door. must be W! they aren't even chex mix, are they?

have a great flight back, guys!

 W and niimie left on the different airlines...

くるくるパーのWタナベ氏と独特な路線を行くN美氏が、別々の飛行機で帰って行った。 またねー

I-san of FUELER MAGAZINE was at the hot rod reunion, el mirage and etc. for coverage. he, too, supposed to be going back to japan today but on the night flight. he's a great editor and photographer bit of a scatterbrain so hope he didn't miss his flight :D

FULELER MAGAZINEのIシバシ氏もホットロッド・リユニオンやエル・ミラージの取材で来ていて、今日帰る予定なんだけど・・・一人だけ夜のフライト。ご存知の通り本当に心の底から乗り物が大好きで、尋常ではない情熱を持って取材をしている姿を目の当たりにして感激。人に頼まず、自分の足でタウリン漬けになりながらの強行突破な取材をこなしている姿はかっこいい。けど・・・それ以外は元祖スットコドッコイ系。ちゃんと飛行機に乗れたのか心配なんだな。

the end of the race season...


 enjoying a mellow waiting time in the great weather...


the first run, couldn't finish. the setting wasn't right.

 couldn't break his personal record... oh well, next year! we had a cracking good time! T, niimie, and W, thank you all for your support :)


niimie on T's pan...

 T's pan on the dry lake

 T didn't know at this moment that niimie had wrecked several bikes including shinya's, a day before the vintage motorcycle race in japan, etc.
