Well, if award for overdue post was a thing, this would win it! way back earlier this year, May to be exact. Japfest 2013 happened. I had actually managed to publish a video about it on the youtube : But unbeknown I also did get a photo set. I had origionally planned on not posting this, due to the amount of time these posts take I was just going to leave it. But tonight I have a free evening, all the pictures I want to show are edited & I think its time that this post made it live. So the story begins, I meet up with my big homie tattoo man Pete, (Instagram @Pwizzzzle) at his house, saying to him we have 1 hour before we leave for the show, I turn up and his car is floating. No wheels, he states to me "going to buffer it" what an idiot, he's had hours to get this car ready and he does it before I want to leave for the huge journey to Simon Bucknell's (Instagram @SiVTi) house who had kindly given us a place to sleep for the evening. Richard (Instagram @Richardrfo) was also joining us for this weekend in his CRX SiR. We had a nice little convoy planned & I was actually looking forward to it. I had plastered my EG in horrible stickers to advertise my show impact & The speedstore, but it was planned and we were all excited. So that planned convoy of our 3 Beloved honda soon became just a dream, my clutch went on the EG just before I even made it out of Colchester so I told the other 2 that I was going to go get my daily and would meet them back at our set meeting point. On my way, I get a phone call from Richard saying that his clutch has just gone on his CRX also, so he was hoping in with Pete! haha 3 becomes 1 Honda & a Bmw. But hey ho, we made the long long journey to Si's house to chill for the night with Chinese food & CKY Dvds. The next morning came and we were up super early, Marty had been kind enough to lend me a seat in his MX5. Pete & Si fuel'd up .... Si's Mugen kitted DC5... 2 generations of Integra's .... Si standing watch... We met up with the rest of the crew we were on the stand with at a local morrisons Once we were in, we all parked up & upon my stroll I stumbled over Benny Ree's EG. first time I had got to see it in real life...
