Retired production manager. Working in many of Manchester’s advertising agencies, for the last 45 years.
I know quite a lot about cars, there is nothing better than modifying a car and doing it yourself, too many people nowadays are afraid, or just think they can't do it, you won't know unless you try, and there are plenty of help videos on youtube, people who are more than willing to help in Facebook groups, people who have tried failed then managed to do it, so they have great tips, or at shows, you can always ask a like-minded person, that's what's so good about this car community we are in, everyone is the same and always willing to give advice or help. I Have been doing the modifications on this, and have been doing it myself, for over 13 years.

I’ve had quite a few cars in my lifetime, too many to mention, but this car has been the one I've spent most on in time and cash. This has been my project car for quite a while and project cars are never finished. I have no plans currently to mod it any further, but I’m always doing something on it.
I’m a member of a few Facebook groups, they have the topics and people I like to be around as we are all into Jap cars, they are very active as well, with lots of meets and events, so as I'm retired I have plenty to do, Jap2jap, JDM North, Exclusive JDM.
I normally do a show every fortnight, and local meets. But very rarely do evening meets. I’ve had a few stand-out trophies, in competitions I've entered, which gives you a sense of pride, no matter the prize.
I attend quite a few shows, and as you can imagine I get a lot of attention. I mostly stick to Japanese-orientated events like Japfest, Tunerfest, Japanese Performance, and anything that takes my fancy. so look out for me and if you want to know anything else just ask.
