Blue HT81S running

That is exactly what I feel when I first see the photo above, the background lines when pair with car running in full speed give me a running feeling. Great photo and must share it to everyone.

Another view of the car while stationary. Lots of mods on the front and the combination of colours is a bit interesting.

Now we can put a motorcycle in HT81S too

Yeah, it seems that HT81S can carry a lot of stuffs, previously I had posted about a HT81S carrying a scooter, now is a full size motorcycle. I just got a photo of this, I do not find other view of the situation so can't really see from the front seat perspective.

Half Cut Ignis Sport (Video)

Thanks to the owner of the car which posted a video link on my first post. Here you can view the video of it entering a autocross event. Look weird but sure lots of fun. However, one thing that I notice is the driver was seated a bit awkward. Is it too high ?
Happy viewing. Thanks Aaron Smillie for sharing the video.

Flower and Ignis ?

Does this really a good combination ? Flower on Ignis. Above is a sample of that idea. Blue with white and pink flower around to car. Personally, not my cup of tea. However, it doesn't mean it is not interesting, if the colour of the flower is different then maybe it will look different.

Luggage mat by Monster Sport

Have you wish to have a luggage mat for your rear seat after folding it flat? Then you are in luck as Monster Sport recently launch a luggage mat as above for you. Hey, it is not specifically design for Swift Sport (HT81S), it was design for Jimny. However by the picture, it seems that it will fit HT81S too. HT81S rear seat fold flat and does look pretty similar.
If you have a measuring tape, you can check it yourself. The size is 910mm (Width) x 860 (Depth). If you wish to buy one, go to the link below. It does cost you JPY12,960.

When a swift visit another swift at home

When I see the photo above, it gives a feeling of your fellow swift sport come to visit you at home. Same parent but with different children character. A pump up black swift sport and a standard swift sport.
Next come another swift to visit, this time, same grandparents with different brothers. A pump up brotherhood of swift. A four door vs a 3 door. I sometimes do envy a 4 door swift. I feel that it look good and very functional car, especially when my parents wanted for a ride.
A very nice synergy between both of the photo. Photo taken from twitter and all credit to the owner.

HT81S and Manga

Something fresh about a 15 year old car. Always love HT81S in Manga form and Japanese feeling it give. The character is a bit odd when put together with the car. Wonder why the artist do that...

HT51S + HT81S

I think some of you have seen a different set of front bumper with built it fog lamp slot as above. For your information this bumper are designed for HT51S RS version. The version launched before the introduction of HT81S in the Japan domestic market. A sportier version of Swift. 
What I wish to highlight in this post is the differences in the joining part between the front bumper if pair in a HT81S. A HT51S RS front bumper + a HT81S side panel will not look perfect as the gap and rear fender panel will not match correctly.
You may know that the HT81S have additional flair panel mounted on top of the side panel which make the car look wider than standard version of Swift in Japan.
So if anyone of you wish to get a used front bumper from a RS to match your HT81S, then the imperfection on the side should be take note.
Not that bad just not perfect.
