Igor, and his EP82 Starlet

We found Igor in the Gunma prefecture no less. He was hanging out at the Up Garage and we mistook him for an employee at first. Turns out he's originally from Russia, has been in Japan 6 years and is currently attending the Gunma Automobile University School. Igor is immensely friendly so we got to talking to him and checking out his Starlet. The car is gutted, the interior is stripped down and every seam had been drilled and riveted. The hood is just aesthetic and has no bracing. [caption id="attachment_193" align="alignleft" width="600" caption="EP82 Grip Machine"] Read the article
