Thought Id share with you some of what Ive been up to while over here in the (not so sunny) UK.. Mainly evo related... not really in any order.
:D
IIt all begain with this one... This was my first Evo... 1995 Evo III totally standard...

:P
Later I was lucky enough to be able to take this one (instead of my own car) to the sucessful world record attempt for same marque cars on track at any one time, held at Castle Coombe Circuit. This is the Extreme S-Type Evo 6 Tommi Mak ...
The only one ever built... number 1 of 1.... built by Ralliart UK for Pete Harrington...

Then theres the Evo 6RS Sprint... only 12 of these made... this one is number 6/12, I have also worked on and know the owner of number 7...

Tough looking cars! I've always like the Evos more than the WRXes because here in Australia we got SFA Evos and stacks upon stacks of warbling WRXes!

There's a guy at my work with a black Tommi Makkinen with this Ralliart graphic on it. It was the toughest looking Evo I'd ever seen; but last weekend he punted it into a wall at the local race track. So it'll be a while before we see that one again.

Thanks for sharing your other passion with us. Looks like you've got the sickness pretty bad on them as well!

Cheers,


Dave

Cheers dave, yea - many years of dedication and medication and starting to feel a bit better...

Shame about your mates black Mak.. theres been stacks of development done here and I can still get lots of bits let me know if I can help..

Due to the distinct lack of all things isuzu here in the UK, Ive been very slowly turning a corner towards the old school fords... helped by my Mrs... Ill do another thread for that tho!

P.S yea its been raining here all day.... and night...
