Coverage: 2016 Toyo Tires x Super Street – Car Meet & Calendar Launch SoCal Edition (1/2)

A couple of weeks ago Boden Autohaus in Costa Mesa, California hosted their second annual Toyo Tires x Super Street – Car Meet & Calendar Launch event. Not much was promised besides calendars, models, and cars and all boxes were checked off accordingly. Calendars were being distributed and autographed by the lovely Toyo Tire models and lanyards were given out as a bonus. The cars that were on display did not disappoint. You’d see some cars that most pockets could afford and you’d see some cars that very few pockets could afford. Besides all the cars in the main lot, people brought out all types of cars.

Will Nagisa Auto Seat Rails Fit My Bucket Seat?

When installing a bucket seat on your car, finding a proper seat rail is very important. With many manufacturers offering various styles of seats and sizes, offering a seat rail to fit your application can be tricky. Nagisa Auto offers a side mounted option that will fit most standard size buckets. With a mounting width from 380mm ~ 400mm, just measure the mounting width of your bucket seat (not the overall base width) and if your seat falls within the given range, the seat should fit without any issue. For available applications, check More Japan’s page for Nagisa seat rails here.

SOLD! 2017 Acura NSX #001 Sells for 1.2 Million

2017-acura-nsx-001-barrett-jackson-02-1
How much would you pay for the first production #001 Acura NSX? Being number one means something to people sometimes and how many people can say they own the 2017 Acura NSX #001? Just one and it cost a whole lot of ones…about $1.2 million to be exact. Congratulations to the new owner, Rick Hendrick. Not only did he set the highest amount paid for a vehicle at the world renown Barret Jackson auction but the proceeds will be going to a good cause; “the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and Camp Southern Ground in Georgia, which focuses on at-risk kids, children of military families, and those with neurobehavioral disorders.” I applaud this commendable action and I’m glad to see all the media attention this event has gotten is with praise.
