Tsukuba Parking Area

Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to hit up the famous Daikoku Futo PA on my recent trip to Japan, so these few Tsukuba hard parker photos will have to do. There were actually a lot more notable cars in the parking area, but I was too anxious to head towards the paddock area so... Continue Reading →

Killer GTR

It's hard to believe that the R34 GTR is close to approaching 20 years old in just a few years. Still, with 276+ HP from the factory and an advance AWD system, this car has remained a tuner's go-to platform in Japan and around the world til this day. To me, one of the greatest...

S2K With Rare Flair

With how popular the S2000 is among car enthusiasts these days and how abundant aftermarket parts are for this platform, it's pretty hard to stand out from the crowd. That is, unless you choose your parts wisely and go routes that are less traveled. Photos via MINKARA My favorite aftermarket front bumper for the S2K... Continue Reading →

Cocaine Supra

When it comes to modifying cars, a nice balance of performance and aesthetic is essential to a perfectly built car. I mean, who would want to build a car that can go fast but look shitty as hell and vice versa...nobody, especially true car enthusiasts. In many parts of the world, most notably in Japan,...

Simple Fresh GTR

I've always said that R34 GTRs are one of those cars that needs very little in aftermarket modifications to perform well against other sports cars. And til this day, I still stand by this statement.
