I just felt like sharing this one for some reason.
I hope people get inspired when they see cars like the above Toyota Crown, being partially or fully restored to road worthy condition, to want to appreciate and keep older cars from dying away in some scrap yard.
Keeping an older car on the road, could (depending on many factors including what the car is and where you are located) cost less than buying a new one and is considered to actually be safer for the environment; seeing that preserving an older car requires less resources & energy to rebuild.
Consumerism and this endless pursuit for convenience is part of the fast paced life many people live nowadays but its also admirable to see that some car enthusiasts take the initiative to get dirty for the sake of commemorating (for the lack of a better word) ‘the finer things in life’, like they say.

Time: 4:00 pm
Location: The Pavilion, Dubai
Our members demanded that we stage a meet as soon as possible because everybody wants to show up with their recently modified rides.
This time we will hold the meet at the Pavilion, near the downtown Burj Khalifa district. Please dont forget to sign up on our Facebook Event Page as to confirm your attendance.
You can check the location on this map:
Last time, we worked on installing BC adjustable coilovers on Firas’s 86. This time, we are installing H&R lowering springs on Sid’s 86.
The process takes, almost, the same time as installing coilovers but goes to a slightly different route as we had to disassemble each strut, remove the stock springs and replace them with the nice blue H&R ones. The end result was very satisfying, coupled with H&R wheel spacers on the front and the back.
