Throwback Thursday!

It’s your favorite social media day of the week again and you know what that means! Old print ads and pictures from More Japan!

For this week’s throwback, we have an advertisement for the old 80′s SSR lineup. Notice the centerlock Star Formula wheels on that early generation Formula 3000? Awesome!

It’s crazy to think that most of these wheels have stood the test of time. The Formula Mesh, MK-I, MK-II, and MK-III are still popular and still made to this day! I think we should bring back the Star Formula now… I would buy the 15 inch ones in a heartbeat!


SARD Oil Filler Cap

SARD has release NEW Blue Oil Filler Cap includes spring and stay bracket.  The added hardware, when installed properly will keep the oil filler cap from falling off from HI Reving, Engine Vibration or Etc.  This may sound unnecessary, after running a hard day at the track and find that your oil filler cap is missing, it is either someone forgot to put it on or it is on the track or the highway some were.  Also, SARD Oil Filter Holder is available from SARD, to prevent Oil Filter from loosing or falling off.

Challenge Accepted!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock the past couple years, we’re sure you’ve seen Jon Sibal’s Dodge Challenger on SSR Professor SP1s. Jon had these refinished on his own in a custom Vintage Gold and it gives the car such a raw look! These shots were taken earlier this year but never released, enjoy!

Throwback Thursday!

ssr 15 inch lineup 198x300 gallery pic

Thursday is one of the coolest days of the week because we get to post up pictures of cars and wheels that have become “unicorns,” making you wish you had been born earlier and could have bought that car or those wheels. If you were already around cars at the time, you may be slapping yourself for not buying some of these now unobtainable wheels/cars when you had the chance. Now all that remains of these are catalogs and print ads like this one, although I do catch a glimpse of some of these wheels for sale on the Japanese auctions once in a blue moon…

Shifting in FnF

My ladyfriend said that she has never seen any of the Fast and Furious movies, so naturally we had an FnF movie marathon (all films 1 through 6)! And this is what I thought the whole time:
