The drift community is known for their creativity when it comes to builds and this Echo I found on Build Threads is really no exception. Outside of this car there has been no real reason for me to pay attention to anything going on in the Toyota Echo world but this car peaked my interests (briefly) in the small commutator minded hatch.
A bunch of creative (demented?) fabricators in Japan took it upon themselves to merge an echo with an s14 rear sub frame and a blacktop SR20.
The result is a very unique, and very pink, Toyota that can get ass out with the best of them.
The obvious piles of fabrication that would go into the project that would at the end still result in an echo is enough to discourage most but not the Japanese!
Here is a quick video of it in action

This Sunday I will be at the Niagara Tuner & Truck Expo – Presented by Nine-O-Five Rides. I am sponsoring (but not judging) a trophy and it’s sure to be a great event so be sure to roll on through.
I will have stickers on me as well if you spot me.
On the note of stickers I have about 8 orders ready to go out as soon as the Canada Post comes of strike. If there is no sign of a resolution on the horizon next week I will look into alternative shipping measures such as Fed Ex.
Thank you to those who have ordered for being so patient about all this…
Following up some bad news with some good the first run of Stance Is Everything T shirts has been paid for and next week I will have in my hands 10 Large, 10 Medium, 5 small, and 5 XL for sale in the first batch.
Pricing will be confirmed once the shirts arrive and I can figure out how much it costs to ship (again if our postal service ever comes back).
The first run of t shirts by popular demand will look like so:
Last Friday I missed the Maxbimmer Midnight cruise for the first time in three years. I had good reason (I was at the Relay For Life) but I am still just a little bummed I didn’t get to see at least the pre-meet of the cruise. Oh well there is always next year.
