シニア/Senior

senior-1
シニアメンバーの生存確認会が横浜中華街で開催され取り敢えずメンバー全員の安否の確認は取れました。 会の名前は “Camshafters” まだあるのです。
中華街を後は本牧の Bar “IG”

We had a senior member “confirmation party” in Yokohama’s Chinatown. The meeting went well and we were able to confirm all members are still in good health. The club “Camshafters” are still in existence.
After Chinatown we went to “IG” bar in Honmoku.

1969 Camaro Z28

z28-cruise1
1969 Camaro Z28 が足廻りとエンジンの修理から戻ってきたのは昨年のHCS前。
修理をお願いしてから約 2年が経っていました。
そもそもエンジンのオバーホールをお願いしたつもりだったのですが
それにしては随分時間が掛かるな〜と思っていたら
何と Body を残しほとんど直っていたのです。
今まで動きの悪かったヘッドライトカバー、 動かなったヒーターファン、
リアガラス用曇り防止デフォッガー、 おまけにアクセルを踏むと開く仕組みなっているが
動かなかった Cowl Induction もアクセルを踏むとバーを開くし、 まさかこの様に直って戻ってくるとは
思っていなかったので驚きました。
こうなると Body とインテリアも何とかしたくなってきますが 
ここで Body を綺麗にすると乗る機会が減ってしまうのでしばらくはこの状態で乗る事にしました。
修理してくれたのは北海道 札幌のパイレーツさん、 (info@pirates-performance.com) Tel: 011-774-9448

ありがとうございました。

This 1969 Camaro Z28 returned just before last year’s HCS after receiving service on the suspension/undercarriage and engine.
It was sent to the shop to get worked on about 2 years ago.
Initially it was just an engine overhaul that was planned but even so I figured it would take some time to complete. When it came back, aside from the body, just about everything was worked on and fixed up.
Before it was sent to the shop, things like the headlight covers, heater fan, rear glass defogger as well as the intake Cowl Induction on the hood when you open the throttle were not working properly or barely worked at all. However, I was so surprised when it was returned because everything was in working order again.
All that’s left now is to refresh the body and interior but until there’s time for that to happen I decided to drive the car in this current condition as it’s such a blast to drive.
The shop that did all the work is called Pirates Performance located in Sapporo (Hokkaido).

Thank you very much.

25th HCS 2016 “Respect Our Kulture – Mamoroh !”

hcs2016mamoroh-400a SAVE-HCS2016-400
25th HCS 2016

12月4日 (日) に開催が決定した事はお知らせしたと思います。
会場周辺の問題は変化なく今回も今まで同様 “SHIZUKANI” です。
2年前の “Be Calm, Not Loud – Shizukani,” から始まったキャンペーン、
昨年は “Save The Yokohama Hot Rod Custom Show”
今年は “Respect Our Kulture – Mamoroh!”  
“自分達の大切な Kulture は自分達で守ろう – Mamoroh!” 
これは HCS だけに限らず世界中にあるこの Kulture を
自分達で守り育てようと言う意味です。
また “Mamoroh!” には “ルールを守ろう” というのもあります。
今年も 1年に渡りこのキャンペーンを進めて行きます。
皆様のご協力を宜しくお願いします。

As you may have heard by now, the date has been set for HCS2016 on Sunday December 4, 2016 at Pacifico Yokohama. The issue surrounding the perimeter of the event area has not changed and we will continue the “SHIZUKANI” campaign this year again.
Two years ago, “Be Calm, Not Loud – Shizukani” was the campaign we started.
Last year was did “Save The Yokohama Hot Rod Custom Show”.
This year, our campaign slogan will be “Respect Our Kulture – Mamoroh!” The Japanese word MAMOROH means to honor and protect or abide by the rules, hence respect the kulture we care about.
We will carry this campaign through the year until our show in December.
We hope you will also promote this campaign.
Thank you for your support.

整理券をお配りし順番にご購入頂きました。
どこかの福袋は一番目の人が全部買って行った!
早くから並んだ2番目の方が何も買えなかったと言う事でした。

We handed out numbered tickets and customers waited in line for their turn to make a purchase.
I heard somewhere that the first person in line purchased all of the grab bags! There was nothing left for the second person in line even though they came early.

MQQNEYES USA XMAS PARTY Show and Drag

xmas2015-934_2
今年が Irwindale Speedway での開催が最後になるかもしれない MQQNEYES USA XMAS PARTY Show and Drag.
「かもしれない」? と言うのは主催者の我々もハッキリした事は知らないのです。
大きなデベロッパーがこの場所にアウトレットモールを建設すると言う話です。
どこまで本当の話かは知りませんが その昔この土地はゴミ捨て場だったそうで
下の方には古タイヤとか色々詰まっているとの話ですから 何かを建てるには色々大変だそうです。
何はともあれ今年は雨も降らず快晴の中、 無事開催できました。

This year’s MQQNEYES USA XMAS PARTY Show & Drag held at Irwindale Speedway might be the last one.
“Maybe”? That’s basically all we can say because we honestly don’t know the fate of Irwindale Speedway either. The latest word was that a large developer wants to turn this area into an outlet mall. I don’t know how much of that is true. However, I also hear that this area was a dumping ground a long time ago and that there are large deposits of garbage and old tires underground and if they are to develop something like that it will take a lot of work.
That being said, it’s been a few years now we’ve held the event in beautiful weather and this year was another excellent year. Thank you for being there.

Gate Open 4:30am と言う異常なイベントにも関わらず、 早くからエントリー車が並んでいます。

The gate opens at 4:30AM which is very odd for an event but there were still tons of people lined up to get through in the early morning.
