Finally, it's TAMIYA!

In my early post months ago, I've mentioned that I want a Tamiya S2000 so badly. 'Coz I grew up with Tamiya when I was a kid (remember Dash Yankuro?).

I spotted this Tamiya many months ago thru eBay. Got the money, ready to be wired, but still not ready.

Because I waited for the cheapest one. And my waiting finally paid off as I found the cheapest one from Hong Kong! (not that cheap as it was $2 less than other items)...

With high confident, I clicked the Buy Now button, and week after that..voila!

..but the box got smacked as I received it. This is one of the most feared thing, that might happen to the packages while they travel. We never know how safe and secured it might be! Not to mention, LOST!.. I opened!!!..Can't believe it's in my possession!..

..but the problem is, to resemble them. It requires many equipments. And equipment that hardly to find is, the paint. The paint, as stated in the manual, must be applied on many parts, including on the tiny-miny parts. And that little parts, are so little, and only a tip of paint needed! So, I figured out myself, why waste money on paints? $5 for a bottle, and not even half of the bottle needed, and I got to have almost 20 bottle of paints!! Pheww...!!

Think it'll be good enuff to have them boxed!

Mugen Choro Q!


I'm back again...this time with my new Choro Q! It's a tiny yellow Mugen Choro Q!

Well, Mugen is my favorite Honda engine tuners and part manufacturers. Though I love it, doesn't mean I have them parts on my car. Coz Mugen parts are hard to get in my place, and even if they are, the price are totally killing!

To know Mugen, click here.

So, come to this Choro Q Mugen, I got it from eBay almost month ago. The size is smaller than any usual Choro Qs, and I believe it came with cofffee cans back in Japan.

So, let's just see it..

Cute eyh? Haha...I think that's all...till next! Daaa...

Maisto Master Chapter 4: Elektra!!!

Oh dear!

It's been months since my last update! So many probs, so little time to solve' em..So many S2000 to buy, so little cash..hahaha..

But actually, it was my job that killed me and my leisure time to update this blog. But, still, I got times to get couple of mini S2Ks within that period..

As I promised in the previous post, I wanna share with you guys my MotoMax Tuning Garage S2000..But, I think, I just skip that one, and introduce you this Maisto Ultimate Marvel Collection..ELEKTRA!!!

Well, I believe comic fans know Elektra..I'm not goin' to introduce her since I'm not her fan at all..and also, the spin-off movie Elektra (starred Jennifer Garner as Elektra) didn't make big money on screens..and I don't care..hahaha..

What I care the most is when Marvel and Maisto team up to produce this kinda rare collection of S2000...I looked it over ebay, found the cheapest price and without doubt, I bought it!
So, a quick look to it...
Nice packaging, cute car and so worth to have it in my collections...
Well, after this Elektra, I got plenty new mini S2000s in my collection. I'll try to update whenever I bump into free times.
So, see ya next time!

Bond. James Bond! Care to trade?

Shell made a roadshow last week in shopping mall in my town. One of the events was quiz. An easy quiz which answers straightly provided by the staffs, though the questions weren't that hard at all (duh!).

So me and my gf took the quiz, 8 easy qs and less that 5 minutes, all done. But surprisingly, the prize for that cute quiz was this;

A 007's Sunbeam Alpine 5 from 1962 Dr. No movie starring Sean Connery. This Sunbeam Alpine 5 is one of 5 other Bond cars from Shell promotions.

It was on sale at all Shell pump stations in Malaysia last year. The final collection from the promotion came with silver briefcase, like Bond's. The briefcase set is now on sale on ebay for US$40 I guess. The seller is Malaysian.

I'm not into this collection. So I plan to trade it, if anyone love to keep it. The trading is simple, find me one cheap S2000. That's all. Put your address in the comment or e-mail me, and I'll reply..

Let's put the price of this car US$2 for your reference.



What happens in Vegas..not actually stays in Vegas..

Coz it might end up in some other places, like my place..

Enjoy this Honda S2000 Muscle Machine that I got thru ebay, thanks to frenchfryjack from Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. I waited for almost a month, until one day, my mom told me that mr. postman came to visit, asking for me to claim a parcel.

I realized it was a week delayed, forcing me to rush to the post office a day before they close for Chinese New Year..pheww!!

Luckily I managed to claim it..and here are the pictures..

..Viva Las Vegas, and this time, I 100%ly guaranteed that the seller is a guy...

..what a suspicious wrapping, and I guess the labeling let it passed the custom's scanner..

..owh, wow! There it is..the bright, sparkling, orange, hyper tuned Muscle Machine...
Well, this item is actually a loose/used box, cheaper too..but still worthy..

..nice GT wing, click on picture to see what's inside the cockpit, under the dashboard on passenger's side, damn NOS tank!..

..a turbo inter by Yokohama, and a lil scratch on the nose..

..what's with that white dots??..

..the shiny chrome gives a little effect on the piping.. seats, don't know what brand..but I just consider it as Bride's..

..among other big names on this model are Yokohama and HKS, beside Aero-Duo itself.. much like Fast & Furious movies..

..pops the hood, reveal the 'power'...

And so, like others, this 1:64 Muscle Machine gives me the relief, the passion and the excitement. And also, it makes me forget that I'm broke...sigh!

Comin' up to turn your standard factory to an autoshow machine, brought to you by Motor Max!

See yaa..

When will I get this one?

The answer is, never (yet possible)..!!

Went to car accessories shop yesterday to check out some new and fancy stuffs and stickers, and I saw this dude, installing Apex-i Vtec controller on his S2000..

With my close relationship with the shop's owner, I stole a chance to get close to the machine, sitting in the cockpit, enjoying the comfort of the Bride seats and even stepping on the pedals.

The moment went on like five minutes. But that five minutes of my life time is the most exciting. Coz I love this car so much. It's like spending time with Lady Gaga (?)..

I was so excited I forgot to snap photos, except for this.

ah, thinking back...that dude owns only one S2000. I own plenty, even though they're only miniatures..

ps: This S2000 is not the same S2000 as I featured in one of my earliest post. Different owner, but still in the same gang. Now they're three S2000s in my town. Impressive!

I'm broke!

Yes, I'm broke.

My financial status is so bad for this month and next. I have to manage few things on my car, I mean my real car. Taxes, insurance, summons, oil check, engine check and stuffs..

Plus debts!


So, I have to slow down the hunting. But, still there are few S2000s to come into my collection. One item I ordered is not yet received. Maybe this week or next. If received, I'll share.

While wait, I'll just keep on do the calculating, some planning and some brainstorming..of how to manage my financial.

I wish barter trade system still practiced!
