Happy mother’s day!

feel’s.

Feel’s is a little farther from the Type One / Seeker cluster, but still very doable on foot. Didn’t take too many shots again, I wasn’t able to go into their garage, and the worst of it all, all the stuff I wanted to buy there was out of stock. :\

Feel’s rear diffuser on the FD2. UGHHH.

Wish I could’ve gotten closer to check it out. But this is the limits of my zoom.

Feel’s also has their own CRZ as well. Nothing’s been started on it though. Definitely interested in seeing what Feel’s will do to it.

seeker.

Seeker is pretty close to Type One, just another 5 minute walk down the same street as Spoon and Type One. Didn’t end up with too many shots here.

Love the fenders on this Type R. So buff.

Their CRZ on TE37 G2’s

gumball 3000 toronto.

Taking a break from the very slow coverage of Japan, Gumball 3000 just rolled through Toronto a couple nights ago. Went to Yorkville to check it out, hoping to see a Veyron or something but it just got mobbed once it arrived. :\

Other than that, I’m pretty stoked to see the Lambo LP670SV with the roof rack. That was pretty rad.

More shots on my flickr.

This Bentley was pretty nice. Interesting to see the gator skin vinyl on it.

andddd my favourite. The LP670SV with the roof rack. Reminds me of the drifting Japanese NSX with the roof rack/tire carrier that was circulating the web awhile ago.

Maximillion Cooper’s Morgan… Aero?
Check out the Volk Progressive ME’s he’s running on it.

type one part II.

Right outside and around the corner of Type One’s garage entrance is a Spoon FN2, parked seriously close to the wall. I’m not so sure about the lower lips and mirrors being painted silver but I guess it kinda goes with the spaceship vibe this car gives off.

Mix and match of RE30’s and Prodrive GC-10’s. Wonder why they did that.

Looking pretty slammed there.

Headed upstairs to Type One’s showroom and was greeted with something unexpected.

Mint looking Lotus Elan (?) I think? Wow was that thing clean.

Needs a drop. Badly.

Some cars are being worked on upstairs as well. Again, like Studie and ASM, remarkably clean work areas. Amazes me every time.

And you can see Gary in the back there. More on him later.

A 5zigen NSX was there too. Not sure if it’s for display or if it’s going to be worked on, but regardless, NSX’s are always a welcome sight to see.

The infamous EK hanging off the rack… wonder if this thing ever gets moved. I recall seeing it in pretty much all of the Spoon/Type One visits by others.

TSX with Advan RZ’s and NSX calipers:

Love the Mugen exhaust for TSX/Accord Euro R.

More about Gary now… when I walked upstairs, I got to speak with one of the staff there and ended saying that I’m from Canada and such. He signals to the guy in the previous picture and says he’s from Canada as well. Well, small world I thought. Might as well say hi and see how’d he land a job at Spoon. His name’s Gary btw. Ends up he’s from Toronto as well, in fact, only a short-ish drive away from where I live. Crazy. He’s been working there for a couple years and has met several others from Toronto as well, that end up visiting Spoon/Type One. So if you’re ever at Type One and communicating with the Japanese staff in English isn’t working out, look for Gary.

type one part I.

Just down the street from Spoon, is their garage and showroom, Type One.

This particular S2000 was built as a demo car for some magazine shoots and videos. Luckily, I went to Type One the day I went, apparently the day before the shop was pretty empty, the CRZ and this S2000 were out on shoots.

Incredibly clean. The Spoon mirrors are very sleek too. Sure beats the chunky stock mirrors IMO.

Next up is the CRZ. I’ve been dying to see this after seeing the initial pictures of it and was really hoping it’d be there when I go to Type One. Got lucky. Looked pretty clean too, despite the on and off rain from the previous couple days. Good timing with the magazine/video shoot. 🙂

I really liked the initial pictures with the same wheels, the Spoon CR93’s, but in blue, though the silver wheels do make it a lot cleaner looking.

And the other, wilder side of the car, rocking yellow CR93’s:

Part II coming soon!
