  • EVENT: 11. Annual Japaner old- & Youngtimer treffen Bleienbach 2019

    The annual Japanese young and oldtimer meeting in Bleienbach (Switzerland) is still THE event to go if you’re into old japanese cars. I usually don’t promote any events, but this is one of the few rare events i try to attend every year, and since almost all of my car-loving friends are there and it’s organized by some nice people from the scene, i’d really like to support this event. If you’re into japanese classics, see you there 🙂 Check out there website www.Japanclassic.ch and their facebook page for more information.

  • MEET: Japanese Young & Oldtimer meeting Rothrist 2018

    Don’t want to say too much. It was a great day at the newly launched meet. Met a lots of old and new friends. had a relaxing time and saw a great mix of Japanese cars from all eras. Even had my EK9 on display without having planned to do so (just wanted to attend as a specator but ended up inside). Would probably have washed the car if i knew 🙂 The race-car display was the icing on the cake and the weather was excellent for all people to bring out their cars before winter inhibition. Hope they will continue with this event next year. Thanks for all who…

  • EVENT: Various cool upcoming events in September

    It appears that Car season in switzerland is in full swing now. Aside from the “Bergrennen Oberhallau” in two weeks (the local and beautiful hillclimb), there are a lot of cool events in September which i thought i have to share with you. I usually don’t advertise anything on my website, but these events are just worth a visit and i like to support the hard working people who make these events possible. 1) There is a new Japanese old- and youngtimer meeting this year. I don’t know who organizes it, but i thought it might be worth a try. According to the flyer, cars to 1998 build year are…

  • PLACES: Roadtrip to Sweden and Local Z Owner

    So, recently me and my wife made a 4850km Road trip to sweden. Three weeks of driving, our wedding in the middle and then some more driving. Coast to Coast. My daily mazda performed very well, and proved it can handle luggage for three weeks plus a complete wedding Decoration, a box of wine-bottles and camping set nicely. there was even some spare-space 🙂 In sweden you will obviously see a lot of volvo’s some random SAAB’s and everything else, but what always impresses me is the amount of enthusiast cars you see there. it was probably due to the nice weather, but we saw a lot of cool cars…

  • EVENT: Bergrennen Oberhallau Hillclimb 25. / 26. August

    Like every year i like to support our local Hillclimb race in Oberhallau. A lot of people work hard for it and it’s an incredibly cool race. If you have time i really can recommand to co there. lots of cool cars on track and in the parking lot. laid back atmosphere, and the possibility to talk to all the racers, mechanics and see the cars close and racing the clock. The day includes race-laps from the Swiss hillcimb championships, KW-Berg cup and many more. It usually hosts some classic car laps in the brakes, a soap-box downhill race for kids and driftcar showlaps. Note sure if i can make…

  • MEET: Hondaholics.ch cruise 2018

    Every few years Hondaholics Member “Turki” organizes a little cruise for all the Forum members. This year it was my first attendance and all i have to say was: It was a perfect day with lots of nice people. Some old and new faces. some spirited drives with the EK9  and a wide range of Hondas of all kinds. From stock to tuned, from classics to a few-weeks-new. From daily rides to Sports-machines. everything was there. Thanks all and see you next time. (BTW: On the way there i came across a small shop which seemed to be specialized in RX-7, so i had a  quick stop and snapped a…

  • SHOW: Geneva International Motor Show

    Yesterday me and my friend Danny went to the renowned Geneva international motorshow to look at the latest and greatest that the motoring world has to offer. I’ll concentrate on the Japanese cars in this post and i’m happy to say there wgtere some interesting cars 🙂 After entering the show the first car on display was this 2JZ swapped IS350 Drift monster from swiss driver Franz “Hunki” Hunkeler, sporting a full Kazama Auto widebody kit. It even appears to be the Ex Kazama D1 car (beeing RHD) if you look closer… After walking through the accessory halls and entering the real show, one of the first booths to see…

  • PLACE: 25 Years Auto Mutzentäli (New NSX and Civic TypeR)

    This weekend, the local Honda Garage “Auto Mutzentäli”, who’s in Charge of servicing my EK9 had it’s 25 Year celebration. Yesterday i got Invited for a dinner, but wasn’t able to attend, but today they had some Brunch and open doors show going on, so i thought let’s have a look. We were a bit early so they were not really open, however we were allowed to have alook around. First to see outside was the new civic typeR Turbo machine. While it for sure is an inpressive driving machine, think it has nothing in common with the “sleeper” feeling of a GolfR or my EK9. It used to be…
