Monster Sport explain their JWRC engine

Although all the contents and conversation is in Japanese, the photo and video shown of the past JWRC Super 1600 car and engine are great. Worth the watch!
Dont bother to use the auto-translate from youtube for the caption. It is pretty much useless. Just pay more attention to the video shown.

Rough, tough and ready for anything

That's what Parkers, UK said about Ignis Sport. Further testament of Ignis Sport being a future classic car or maybe a legend in its class. Personally, I do not know much about Parkers website, however I do believe that a good review is better than no review.
A gem for under 1000 pound, which is great value in my opinion. Easy to run and a great body strength.

Singapore Black Iggy

Girl and car is a perfect combination, especially impressive is when the girl happened to own and drive the car. I am happy to know that is something happening in Singapore. By renewing the COE, this Ignis was given another breath of life (10 years). Something that is rare for such a car in Singapore market.
Clocking more than 170,000km on the ODO is another testament that this owner really love the car. I think it is a true candidate for future classic in Singapore land and should be able to showcase it in local car show in the future. This car was well taken care as mention in my previous post and having a great resume too.
More can be read via the links below and more picture too.

Snow and car

I love snow, or I think I love snow. Never experience winter before but wish to drive on snow and enjoy the landscape of white.
This owner chooses a great background for the photo where almost everything else is black and white and having a bright yellow as the object really make it pop.
The colour of the road make it appear that the car is sitting on a lake or water. Great effect.
All credit to the owner, photo taken from facebook. Anyway, where is this photo taken ?

McDonalds Drive Thru

Do you go out for late supper in your HT81S ? I do, sometimes, I don't even know where I should go to for supper. McDonalds are high on my list of late supper location. The photo above does give that impression and it is lovely. 
Anyway, this photo is not mine but I saw it in twitter and seems appropriate to share this to all. Great contrast and coverage of the photo.

Dark force rear design

That is what I feel when I first see this picture. Black painted rear door, dark tinted rear mirror and horizontal cutaway bumper design. All this will bring a more boxy feeling to the already boxy car. A bit too much black too. But great effort and personality.

Mini gathering

Lovely photo in a tunnel with 4 different characteristic of HT81S. Different mod and direction. Which one I would prefer ? I prefer the standard look. Not too fancy of too much exterior mod. Not police friendly here. :)
Photo taken from twitter again. Credits to the owner.

HT81S checkup at Monster Sport

What do you feel when you send in your car to the mechanics for routine maintenance or repair ? I do feel good as I can have a chance to see the car at a different angle, I can see the bottom of the car when it is jack up on the hoist. However, I am picky on which mechanic and what product use on my car. Unfortunately, I don't have Monster Proshop in Malaysia, else I would be spending most of my time hanging out there and looking at the parts.
Anyway, I like a clean and tidy workshop. It speaks a lot of their practice and workmanship. Do you have similar feeling ? Drop me a comments below.

Retro feel of HT81S

Great shot of HT81S in this photo. The background colour remind me of the retro feeling and the focus of HT81S with the small bridges really make it great. I must share this photo.
