A couple of weeks earlier, I'd noticed a funny looking turbo plush toy on the Sleeka Spares facebook page. I hadn't seen anything like it before, and got them to reserve one for when they came in to Australia.
After being told they had come in, I made my way over to their shop, stopping for a few photos near the wetlands on the Salisbury Highway connector.
It's a good bit of road to use for photos as it's fairly quiet, and no reason for the vast majority of people to head down there, aside from the odd birdwatcher you can see above. I've done quite well taking photos in exactly this spot, the main achievement being a Truckin' Life magazine cover photo and lead article that I both wrote and photographed...
...as well as a feature on this cool Ford XC ute in Extreme magazine.
Parking up at Sleeka Spares, there were a few interesting cars scattered around the street.
I made a beeline for this tough JZX90 Toyota Chaser after getting out of the car. I've seen a few of them used as drift cars, but it's very rare to see one on the street, particularly compared to the number of newer JZX100 Chasers kicking around.
This MA70 Toyota Supra wasn't bad either.
Less cool was this newer Supra, with an overly ornate bodykit.
Just outside the office door was this bright yellow RA28 Celica.
As well as another MkIV Supra, albeit a somewhat singed shell.
Inside, I picked up the turbo teddy, walking past some more sad looking vehicles on my way back to the car.
I then amused myself taking photos of it in different places on the Ceffy.
