Something new to help liven the place up again, taking this idea from some other forums I frequent.

Basically, what have you bought recently? Doesn't have to be car parts (although in my case it would be mostly that).

Pics are welcome, but please keep it clean. We don't want to know how much someone has spent on... pornography for example :lol:


I'll kick it off with some stuff bought locally and overseas:

Front lip to suit an early model for $100 - Gumtree, had a good yarn with the guy for a couple of hours too:

Full Nolathane bush kit for a Gem, only things missing were the swaybar D link bushes and the shock ends - $300 with free post from Ozgem:

"Headgasket" shirt and hoodie from Ozgem via Shamrock Shirts - $30 + $60 with free shipping.

I'll let the pics speak for the rest of my recent acquisitions:

Only time I bet you'll ever see those two on the same page. Isuzu Statesman Deville?! :shock:

And, even though no one will understand what these are or why I would buy them (It's a Zokusha thing):

Nice collection of stuff! Big import monster delivery?

Liking the looks of that red tx 'for sporty drivers'

Whats with those cat cards at the end?

I can post up some pics later but my recent purchases dont look as cool out of the car.

Got the MLS Head gasket for the twin cam. Got various EFI connectors, including some of the rare 6 pin ones for the ignition module (have spares if anyone wants to go delco efi with coil packs in the near future) Got some chip burning gear, got some ls1 ecu stuff.. Proved my can bus cable works to read a mates 2011 LS3 Maloo which was delivered last week :P

Spent my tax on some new sound gear. The system consists of:

Vifa 5" splits
Vifa 6.5" coaxials
Response 10" sub
Response 4x100rms amp
Pioneer Monoblock

Just need to finish my fibreglass parcel shelf and she's ready to pump :twisted:

Oh yeah and got myself a Crane HI-6S which I'll hook up asap!

Antus: yes it was an IM shipment, I've got more stuff building up to save on post (I saved about $140 in shipping by bulking all of that, shows how much I spent all up).

The cards are Bosozoku (Japanese Biker Gang) themed Namenayo cards. One of those quirky but popular Japanese trinkets that I am a fan of. I'm an Otaku/Anime enthusiast, as well as being fairly into Japanese culture outside of Cars and Drift in general, so that sort of thing is right up my alley. Bosozoku styled cars (or Zokusha, which literally means Gang-Car) is one of my favorite automotive styles along with the subsets Shakotan and Kyusha (Low-Car) and of course Dorisha (Drift-Car).

I'm buying a pack of them with every IM shipment I get, to start building up a little collection. Something a little more unique and distinctive than say... stamps ;)

Also, spent $17 and went to see "Senna" and the local cinema last night. Well worth watching for anyone who's even remotely into F1/Motorsports. Very eerie watching the onboard footage of the last lap of his life before the fatal accident, knowing what was about to happen...

Highly agree with this statement. Well worth the money, a great eye opener.

The only flaw I have with it, is they made that 1989 incident look like Prosts fault.
