Mister Money! Andrey’s new car! by kOOpA

In Andrey’s home, Bulgaria, it’s often asked “If a man doesn’t take obligatory pictures posing with his new car in front of a pawn shop, is he really a man?” Alright, I made all that shit up, it’s just that when you see a pawn shop called “Mister Money”, you GOTTA get some pictures with your new car there, right?

Andrey, Domi’s big (in all respects of the word) brother picked up a ’95 RB25 S14 this past weekend from a really nice dude in Iowa. It’s got some pretty old drift day stickers on it, so if that’s any indication of how reliable this motor’s been since way back when, I think this girl’s gonna be put to a lot of good use!

The body could use a little love, but my god does this thing feel good on the road. Congrats Andrey!

just saw tanner faust’s new video

which reminds me of ryan tuerck’s recent video (that i already posted)

which reminds me of my favorite video of this type so far, ah fai in his F20C AE86

there’s something about linking corners “in the wild” that has always seemed really cool to me. not that i would ever try it…

From Edgar @ MDU:

MIDWEST DRIFT UNION ROUND 4 (POINTS EVENT)
GATEWAY INTERNATIONAL (St. LOUIS)
SATURDAY AUGUST 28TH

That is correct, Midwest Drift Union will be hosting a road-course event Saturday August 28th as our round 4 stop of the NOS MDU Drift Series at Gateway International Raceway. More information on registration will be available on our main website soon http://mdudrift.com/
Maybe that all season pass isn’t a bad idea after all.
