after a bit of a relationship is established & perhaps with a "car guy" that may only be 1 or 2 meetings moving to a "1st name basis" (with -san of course) likely ok.
without meeting him in e-mail exchange or telephone conversations i nor my (japanese) wife would use 1st names....
this guy is a bit of a celebrity in japan (even tho his shop/office) looks like a bit of a shack....i would be willing to bet a lot of his customers only use formal last basis.

If the circus no longer fools you, life is not worth living.

has anyone seen any detail pics of these cars? They appear as though they could be slap togethers... but maybe not... I have not done any research. But besides the rather oversized bodywork, what makes them special/different from what can be built pretty much anywhere?

Cheers

If I understand you correctly Your old car is from Germany, you are in Canada, you need someone else to do your work, your ricer style tuner is from Japan, your parts will be made in Asia, your guys indy shop is in California, and you just dissed the top of the rennlist 911 DIY food chain. Do I have that correct?
