Hi, my name is Kristján Jóhann and I come from Iceland. The capital. Reykjavík. The same place Oskar_Subaru comes from. Just wanted to show you my ride.

Well, this is my ride. Subaru Leone GLX 1986. Electric glass-sunroof, electric windows, electric mirrors, PUSH Button 4wd and 8000K Xenon! It has ONLY 412thousand kilometers on it ;) The car is in great shape


Got a set of 13" Chrome wheels with it when I bought it and they looked like this after I gave them a light soap wash...

After 2 hours of polishing by me and Oskar_Subaru these were the results...

I got a set of flat rims and decided to turn them inside out:

I have a Canon EOS 400D (Rebel Xti) 10.1MP and mostly use my 10-22mm widelens. And sometimes my 55-200,, zoomlens.

Nooo, at summertime we get 15-25°C Usually. Sometimes upto 29°C but not often.

At wintertime we get from 8°C like it's now outside and down to -10°C

https://sl-i.net/FORUM/images/imported/2008/10/2903181777_28b4cf542c-1.jpg

Yes, I drive that bus, and if you come to Iceland, you must let me know so I can be your driver :D

Not much to see though, but you should Google the "Northern Lights" and see some better pics there!

OR

Google for "Norðurljós" which is Northern Lights in Icelandic

Haha, silly me. Kemur samt ágætlega út þrátt fyrir að dekkin megi vera aðeins breiðari. :D

the neverending project

honda civic coilover sleeves on stock shocks
welded rear diff
5speed d/r hi/lo
front axles disassembled and outer halves put trough the bearings
Polyurethane bushings in rear subframe (custom)

and there you have a EA82 drift machine
