History garage – MegaWeb

I never made it to History garage my first trip to Japan, i knew about it but did not know it was so close to Toyota City Central and just never went and such a shame. going there and seeing the variety of car's was breathtaking, the highlight for me was seeing the WRC Cars. Growing up in australia we use to get WRC highlights on channel 10 sunday morning's after every round and of course my favorite was the perth special stage and seeing the cars going over the jump while the other went under the tunnel i thought this was cool as. fast forward 20 years later and here i'm standing looking at some the biggest names in WRC car's my favorite being the GT4 Celica always had a soft spot for the old ST185 so to see one was awesome the 205 was the icing on the…

Kidsheart

KIDSHEART!!! Another one of my other favourite place we visited in Nagoya was of course Kidsheart. After meeting my idol Tsuyoshi Tezuka at a Full Lock drift day at Calder Park, I had wanted go to Kidsheart to see his car in person for over 10 years.  Having owned a 1JZ Cressida and now the Kidsheart/HKS JZX81 Yamaha edition this was like the holy place for all things X Chassis related. It was a bit of a walk from the nearest train station; maybe 30-45min walk (mind you it would have been a lot quicker if we knew what side of the road to be on), and the main road that Kidsheart is on is separated by an Express way so you can only cross it every couple k’s. We didn’t know this until we were half way there on the wrong side of the freeway unable to cross! This Expressway…

Toyota automobile museum

The Trip of a lifetime, I have wanted to go to Japan for over 10 years and I guess being a pussy to commit to a trip, the rumours of it being expensive, and the whole language barrier thing had put me off making the effort to head over. This year I pulled my finger out and booked a 4 week trip over there and saw a few sights along the way; one of which was the Toyota Museum in Osaka.       Once we left Osaka we had a lot of day trips to different places before we made our way to Nagoya. Nagoya is home to two of my favourite places on my trip; Toyota Museum and Kidsheart. I have to say I really enjoyed this town not only for these two sites, but also as a whole. The Toyota museum had a mixture of all car manufacturers, not…

Geelong revival motoring festival

Geelong revival, the event itself is based after the original events held in the 1950's on the beautiful Geelong foreshore. the event has grown and a new State Hillclimb Round was added in the park, making the Geelong Revival Motoring Festival one of the few multitrack events on the motoring calendar.           The event is self caters for all from kids to the adult's with a lot of things to see any do. Katrina and I normally try to make this event every year as it is enjoyable and considering the event itself is free it is good value for money.
