The old saying above is true, not one individual can achieve success alone, it takes a team of people to create one vision and be able to act upon it.
As a group of individuals it’s hard to not get carried away with your own ideas no matter how good they seem but it also works in reverse, sometimes as individuals we aren’t pushing ourselves far enough.
Its a Thursday afternoon, I’m standing in a garage on a driveway with a half built chaser parked on it, down the road sits a fully battle ready JZ Altezza and we are waiting on a recently painted,recently rebuilt,recently Duce kitted MX5 to appear. All for one reason a photoshoot only its absolutely pissing down with rain,dark and generally shit for photos
Moving house sucks balls but it does help you find stuff you totally forgot about. This is one hard drive’s random gold that i have found from back in the early days of Minty.Fresh!
This first dump is from circa 2009/2010
Let the random photo dumping begin!
These are some of the long ass awaited photos thanks to our Photographer Kyle. Due to some home / internet issues we havent had a chance to see these until right now. Lets do it!
The purpose of FINALBOSS was an invitation only event held at Driftland, over the course of a weekend. To highlight some of the most ‘Japan’ cars in the game. Anyway. Leading the shots is our resident Jites. Blasting up in his s14 Kouki. This was Jites’ last big event in the 14 and as Pete mentioned earlier, he’s onto new ventures!
This super clean 180 owned by John Fallon was tearing it up all weekend. Under control and collective. Exactly whats needed to keep a car this clean, in once piece.
Where do I begin? Perhaps ill go from the start…
Mint: Hey guys, what are your plans on Saturday? It’s my birthday, are you up for doing some skids?
Us: Sure man! Great idea! Lets bring a tow rope just in case Jites decides to fly off the cliff….
We should stop saying stuff like that…
After a quiet 5 month period we finally managed to get out for our first outing of 2014 at Crail.
It was a rather busy day and considering we only got 4 runs in, we sure did have an unexpected amount of fun doing it.
Shooting cars for features can be an art, an art that shouldn’t be rushed but sometimes you just have to work with the time you get given.
Stuart Lawson has owned his FC RX7 for nearly 3 years now and at the beginning of every drift season we try to arrange a time to shoot the car, however the urge to drift has always been too much for Stu.
