The JDM Imported Podcast covers everything JDM by Elusive Auto Company, a grassroots dealership and importer of Japanese cars. This is a behind the scenes look at a dealership starting from the garage and moving into a retail space. I will be sharing the current import car market, what cars are hot, how to import, what to look for, my car inspection findings, fixes..etc. Covering the icons like the RX-7, Supra, Fairlady, Silvia, and more as well as some not so common VIP and Kei cars. It's a two way street so most questions via email or DM's will get addressed. Should be good fun.

    The Datsun 510 Build Series #1 of 10

    The Datsun 510 Build Series #1 of 10

    Alright, here we go!  As if there wasn't enough on the plate of this solo business owner, family man, enthusiast, loon.... I'm starting a major build.  This is a car that has occupied my daydreams for multiple decades and now, inexplicably, I have one.  This is not going to be a series of me bolting on parts and reporting back.  This is a series of me exercising some old skills and mostly, learning as I go.  Expect triumphs, that are over celebrated, fails, that are completely transparent, and hopefully an insightful listen.   This will be a 10 part series covering the car in its current state (totally naked chassis and some boxes of parts most of which, won't be used) to completion.  This goal is to make this my rolling business car with a track duty focus.  Datsun...SR20...Racebits...lets go!

    Shop Car? Let's get personal

    And Yes, I've changed up the intro due to feedback
    Have some big news, maybe not the brightest but, it's a decision none the less.  Should add to the content moving forward.  Also, we get a little personal of a major...terrible event that recently happened in my life.

    back on track, Big Biz Update and Soarer talk

    This is turning into a bad habit....Too long in between podcasts!  So, a ton has happened since the last episode and I will be back on track.  If you've been following me, this is a big one.
    JDM talk of course, on the back half I get into one of my favs...the Toyota Soarer.
