'77 Toyota Celica owned by Ken
car was one of the fastest 20/22r hybrids I've ever
seen. This car also pumped more nitrous into a
20/22r hybrid I've ever seen too!!! I don't think Ken
ever got more than two races out of one bottle.
'72 Datsun 510 Owned by Grant Butsumyo
510's are hard to come by. Clean ones even harder. Unfortunately, this car got stolen, crashed, and stripped.
BTW, I think it was my own personal set of dual Mikuni 44PHH sidedraft carbs that we're on the car when it got stolen.
'82 Toyota Corolla owned by Eric Ono
I don't know what's worse. Losing money from betting that this car would win a race, or listening to Eric's lame excuses about "mechanical difficulties".
This car definitely had the right stuff. Just the wrong driver...
'86 Toyota Supra Turbo owned by Akio Machii
Totally HKS powered, this car put out more horsepower than most exotic Italian sports cars.
Rumor has it that this car smoked a Lamborgini Contach on the freeway.
'8x Honda CRX owned by Dean Hanano
I don't know much about this car except that it's green w/ yellow gold trim. He must be a Long Beach Poly fan or something.
Dean, send me the specs on "The Blue Max".
'9x Honda Accord V6 owned by Dean Hanano
You can take Willie out of racing but you can't take racing out of Willie. It's obvious that modifying our cars goes way beyond just a youthful Asian fad.
'8x Mazda RX7 owned by Brian Shimizu
Unfortunately, I don't have much info on this car either. Matter of fact, I haven't seen Brian in over 8 years. Brian, you out there???
'71 Datsun 510 owned by Floyd Kika
Nice 510. I wonder what ever happened to this car. More importantly, I wonder what ever happened to its owner!
'77 Toyota Celica owned by Brian Karasawa
There's an interesting story behind this car. It had a fully built 18RG motor. But it never ran right because of a cheap header bought from Toysport.
Rumor has it that this car was last scene on a flatbed, wrecked.
'75 Datsun 280Z owned by Richard Hitomi
This car had the most interesting set of driving lights I've ever scene. Too bad the owner took them off before taking this picture. All four of them.
'95 Acura Integra GSR owned by Brian Karasawa
This is what I drive today. Eric Ono, lemme know when you wanna run it. I'll smoke you.
'9x Lexus GS400 owned by Ken Bone
Ken is notorious for
owning cars for only six months then selling them for
something else. He's broken all previous records with this
car. I think he's had it for at least eight years now.
'95 Acura NSX-T owned by Ken Bone
Ken, you could've at least parked the ride someplace where there aren't any POLES to block the view. So Ken, how long did you have this car? Six months right?
'74 Mercury Capri V6 owned by Robert Endo
For those of you who can remember what a Capri was, here's a pic of Robert Endo's first V6 Capri.
Notice the Shoreline Racing wave in the bold tint along with the 70's era color keyed side-view mirrors.
'00 Audi S4 owned by Richard Hitomi
Richard was a beneficiary AND fatality of the Dotcom bubble. Luckily, he was able to at least get a car out of the whole fiasco.
'82 Toyota Corolla owned by Eric Ono
Another picture of this fake ride and posseur owner.
Toyota Corolla owned by Eric Ono
I think this car got stolen and stripped.
Why, I have no idea. I didn't think there
was a market for stolen sled parts.
Shoreline cars from sometime in the 80's
This picture was taken from a picnic at El Dorado park in
Long Beach. Not exactly sure when the date was but I
think it was back in the mid to late 80's.
'90 Porsche Carrerra 2 owned by Ross Ito
age doesn't even cure go fast car syndrome. You can
take Willie out of the Westside but you can't take the
Westside out of the Willie. Even as guys approach
their 40's and beyond, they still can't help but spend money
on their cars. Ross' 911 sports H&R springs, K&N
intake, Chip mods, S/S exhaust kit, Brembo rotors w/ kevlar
pads, 993 mirrors and door-pulls, and 993 chromed rims.
Ross' wife Natalie sports the red turbo-intercooled
Mazdaspeed Miata in the background.
'04 Acura TL 6MT owned by Brian Karasawa
For all the driving I do for my job, I decided it was
time to buy something nice and cushy. Having four
doors definitely helps when taking the kids to
basketball practice too. Still couldn't leave the
car alone though. This TL sports a Comptech
suspension and 19" OZ Galilleo III's.
'7x Datsun 510 owned by Floyd Kika
Sorry Floyd, I couldn't remember if you said your 510
is a 70 or 71 or 72. In any case though, Old School Shoreliner Floyd Kika returns with another 510.
Checkout the old school Hurst T-handle shifter. Talk
about keepin' it real!
