The entrance to the Spice Garden compiled of beautifully laid granite and arched by creepers.
I had the wonderful Spice Tea which I absolutely loved. It has anise star and a couple of other spices with a hint of clove. I also had their signature cookies (which are made fresh) with a multitude and variation of spices. These are simply awesome. I even brought my own tau sar pneah for a little variety :)

I'm not sure if its age catching up to me or if I'm just going a bit soft. But I can't seem to rid myself of the feel and solid fluid lines of these classics I grew to love watching BTCC and DTM races. It could be the solid build quality, the entirety or the exotic feel... But no, I eventually concluded that these European marques did things a little different from our econobox pocket rockets. These cars were built with PASSION and SOUL~!
The 1996 version had a 2.5 L 90° V6 engine delivering 483 hp at 11,900 rpm, had a top speed of around 300 km/h and weighed only a scant 1,060 kilograms.
This "Baby Merc" ran on the 224 bhp at 7,200 rpm and 245 N·m of torque at 5,000 rpm 2.5 litre 4-banger from Stuttgart, whilst pushing the top speed up to 155 mph. In their final incarnations, these engines produced up to 350 bhp (260 kW) in racing tune.
The Peugeot 205 GTI is considered as one of the best hot hatches of all time with journalists singing praise from every corner in the world this car had shown up. It was only running measly 1.6L (115hp) and 1.9L (128hp) engines, but with its inherent habit of sudden lift off oversteer and extremely light kerb weight of only 762kg! It was an amazing little number!

The decals are new and kinda upbeat for its purpose.
That insignia, which looks like it belongs on a Sherrif's horse, looks a little out of place.

The Dragon70's Genesis is to be the spiritual successor and mechanical superior to my Pooh Project. I can't wait to see and hear it roar to life! *overwhelming excitement* Dragon70's old heart. We shall miss you for all the on-throttle maneouvres we've had. Also in the shop is another member of the Northern Touge family getting a new heart. It will also be Forced Inducted!
I should write up an article soon on Northern Touge and its force inducted members. I suspect most have gone past this route for gaining power. Most enthusiasts would tell ya nothing beats the high revving shrill and thrill of an NA all-motor, but one cannot deny the efficiency of the forced induction system.
