    i woke up her and told her.So simple.You cant imagine how was looking at me,and what was shouting to me.
    The difficult part was my father.
    My father was mechanic at comercial ships,and was on ship,he wasnt with us at vacations.
    I told my mother to dont tell my father that i ve done the carnage,but she.
    I had believed that my mother hadnt tell the truth to my father.
    All that when suddenly after some years my father told me that he knew it from when happened.
    Maybe my worst day in my life.

    for me it was a Jeep Willys from WWII, probably aged 8-10
    Have to say it is probably one of the greatest "car" you can learn driving with. doesn't go too fast but enough to appreciate the speed, 3 gears + 1 reverse, and very simple mechanic...

No doubt, inspired (and maybe financed) by Toyota, it features quite a lot of stage action. Anyway, I am going to the premiere in Obihiro City tomorrow, so can post a critic of it here over the weekend. BTW, I can't recall any recent movies with a rally theme......was there a Jackie Chan one or was that more racing? http://overdrive-movie.jp/about/introduction.html
    Well, I thought it was a very good movie with some of the key scenes borrowed from the WRC. Also, a lot of effort was made to portray authentic Service Park action (the movie mechanics were trained by well-known APRC/WRC mechanic Miede-san) . The hero's car is an actual Toyota S2000 car imported from South Africa for the movie, though fitted with turbo engine in SP scenes. Also, you will note in this behind the scenes video that it changes from left hand drive to right hand drive (movie magic!). His rival's car is a modified normal car, C3. The movie credits list Nutahara (ex-PWRC) and Katsuta (National Champion) as stunt drivers as well as Mark de Jong ( advisor from WRC Promoter) Some lol moments for me were the 'Tokyo -Odaiba Rally' special stage on the Tokyo Expressway and the 'Hokkaido Ohotsk Rally' where the hero crashes after the Fafe SS jump (some clever CG work, there!). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1r379kG7YA

Will it ever be built? Don’t know, I’ve never been any good at finding the budgets required to do engineering projects of that magnitude, while doing it at kit car level (no disrespect to this field by the way) is not something I currently intend to do. Either way, the project was/is a great fun and anything further from now one is a bonus.

    Thank you.

    As they point out, it is a Singer type of project, i.e. slightly different to what I am trying to achieve, but the Integrale is up there on my list of favorite competition cars and I wish them best of luck, hope they manage to do what they are aiming for.
