Misadventures of a Drift Newbie, Part 6: Chizuru’s Debut.

By Tim Kondas | May 20, 2019 | 0 Comments

This was a big week for us! On Friday Nate came over so we could do some more work on Chizuru the 300ZX to get her ready for the public debut. He replaced some of the broken and duct-taped-together rubber bits in the intake plumbing, which cured a lot of vacuum leaks. She’d been pretty…

Chizuru has left the driveway! Teammate Nate and I have gotten the Z31 up and running enough to start making short ventures out into the world! The maiden voyage was last Monday to the the Autozone still within my neighborhood. The battery light on the dash was on and we wanted to see if the…

Thunder Turd Turbo Poop!

By David "Roscoe" Fauver | May 7, 2019 | 4 Comments

Everyone’s favorite ford to give a funny name. There really is not much here to make fun of. This 1987 Ford Thunderbird Turbocoupe is actually in fairly decent looking shape. It seems to be all there too. The automatic trans is an absolute tragedy but since we don’t have a key we won’t have to…

1974 Ford Pinto Yard Find.

1970’s Style, unreliably packaged

By David "Roscoe" Fauver | May 6, 2019 | 0 Comments

If you are like us you appreciate vehicles that exhibit a perfect balance of quality, performance, reliability, comfort, and style. Here at Roscoe’s, we don’t have that vehicle. What we do have is this Ford Pinto, and for $750 this shining example of why so much of the ’70s was just bad and needs to…

By Tim Kondas | May 1, 2019 | 0 Comments

Last Sunday my teammate Nate came over, and we set about rousing Chizuru from her slumber with the help of a new fuel pump. We thought it was going to be just a matter of removing 2 screws and popping off that access panel in the trunk floor to get at the pump, only to…

Sharing less than 5 minutes of your time can change the whole world for a little turtle trying to cross the road. It may seem as tho they are suicidal or just plain stupid but this is not the case. All too often whats occurred is a road has been built between where they normally…

Misadventures of a Drift Newbie. Part 3: Work Continues.

Work has been continuing on the Z31, slowly but surely it’s coming along. Since the last post my teammate Nate and I have removed the carpet and headliner, and many of the other unnecessary interior parts. It should weigh less and smell better inside now! We discovered a bit more rust than we’d like to…

This whole project started a few not so short years ago with a relatively simple idea: “After years of wishy-washy feelings towards modifying this car or that, I decided that I may have more motivation and better results making the whole car, more or less… Goals: Handle and stop like a Vette, Look like a…

By Tim Kondas | April 5, 2019 | 0 Comments

So in my last post, I talked about how I fell in love with drifting in the not-so-distant past, and how I planned to start doing it myself. The crucial component is a car in which to drift, so here we are! The fine folks at Roscoe’s had this forlorn 1985 Nissan 300ZX in the…

The drift event through my eyes

By Darden | April 3, 2019 | 0 Comments

The drift event was spectacular. All age groups are invited. I saw people from babies to older people there. Of course, the babies had ear muffs and some other little ones had them as well. All different styles of cars where there. Some rusty and duct taped together and some shiny and sparkle. There were…

Reefer Truck!

Reefer Truck! Sorry, not the fun kind. However, the back of this thing gets colder then your ex-wife making anything you put in the back last longer then it would in your trunk even on a sunny day. The insulated walls effectively keep cool temperatures and sound inside the box. Great for perishable items such…

It’s been exciting to watch hard work and perseverance turn into a success story right here in Richmond. Yesterday was the grand opening of the Richmond Food Truck Hub.

 It’s that time again to put another long-neglected classic car up on the block. This example comes to us from the suburbs where the vehicle was traded in lieu of a debt, then for reasons we can only assume are related to the column being dismantled, the car just sat. For years….. Only some of…
