Going All In: An Escort Built With Passion

Andreas Kokor is probably the most dedicated Ford fan you’ll ever meet, and the car you’re looking at is his world. This 1970 MkI Ford Escort RS2000 contains more of his blood, sweat and tears than

This Is Why We Love Classic Motorsports

While it’s not as well attended as its West Coast sister, the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, I was shocked by the variety of cars in attendance at Road Atlanta a few weeks ago. As Datsun/Nissan

A Taste Of The Mooneyes Street Car Nationals

This is one of our favorite annual events, a wild mix of everything and anything laid out right in front of your eyes in the heart of Tokyo’s Odaiba district. It’s one of the most colorful

A 280ZX & The Perfect Day

It was mainly to meet my sister there before she came back home after being in Europe for so long. Sort of a spontaneous short get away for me but I had a full day to myself before she arrived. So, I

The Little Magic Box: 3DDesign’s 460HP 140i

Now, we all know how well turbocharged engines respond to a little massaging. That first round of modifications that we all go for – and most stop at – usually because the next step is when things

Lights, Camera, Fitment: Wekfest Japan

With the hugely popular stance event always being scheduled for Golden Week in Japan (a holiday ritual that leads to a mass exodus of people leaving Tokyo), I usually find myself not trying to rent a

One Night In Melbourne

Despite being just one of 7.6 billion people currently inhabiting our tiny, floating rock, we all come with the individual nuances that make us ‘special.’ The more I immerse myself in car culture away

BMW Life: Stopping By 3DDesign

The BMW scene in Japan has always fascinated me, and if you’ve followed Speedhunters for some time you’ll probably understand what I referring to. From stumbling upon track-prepped E46 and E92 M3s in

The Unexpected GTI Meeting

What would stop you in your tracks on any other day, in any other place, might only warrant a cursory glance. This was my last morning travelling the roads around Lake Wörth; gone was ‘my’ Ur-quattro

The Rarest M3s

I’m not going to lie, I feel jealous most of the time. Understand this, I live on an Island with less than 900,000 people, so I often think “Come on, look at all these big countries with their rich

Daikanyama Cruising On A Lazy Sunday Morning

Tokyo really is an unbelievable city if you’re into cars. It’s unique in a way that’s almost hard to explain, but what I can do is tell you why I like car culture here so much, starting with the sheer

How They Track Day At Sepang

Following the excitement of Retro Havoc, the next stop on my 10-day adventure in Malaysia was spending a few hours at Sepang International Circuit for a little track day fun. It’s not often that an

Low-Speed Hunting On Skyline Boulevard

You’re downshifting and hard on the brakes before initiating turn-in, feeling your heart against your chest and your shoulders doing their best to leave the seat back. You dive into the turn as you

Racing Heritage At Retro Havoc

While roaming the multi-story parking lot that played host to Malaysia’s 2018 Retro Havoc event, two cars in particular piqued my interest – the Porsche 911 Carrera in the cover image, and the Series

Two R35 GT-Rs Chase 200mph

Introducing the ‘untunable’ R35 Nissan GT-R. Looking back on the idea of this notion a decade after the release of the car is hilarious if nothing else. My mind was blown when I’d learned that Nissan

Khyzyl Saleem’s Japan Series

While I don’t blame people for being unsure of what’s real and what’s not anymore, I really don’t think it matters. If you’ve ever thought that we’ve seen everything with regards to car modification,

Wekfest Japan: The Mega Selection

By the time you reach the end of this post you will have seen a total of 333 images from this year’s Wekfest Japan event. That’s something not only testament to the high quality of cars that are being

Envisioning Reality: The Old & New Porsche 911

Obviously a lot of other things come into it, but if the idea from the get-go isn’t right you’re always going to be fighting a losing battle. It doesn’t have to be anything outlandish, but your

Kings Of The Ring: Manthey-Racing Strike Back

On any given day, the Green Hell can test the best drivers in the world, but during the annual ADAC Zurich 24-Hour Race it becomes an entirely different beast. This year’s event, which took place this

Paying Homage To Kanjo Culture

Why? Because just like Thailand and Indonesia, Malaysia has strict import rules and ludicrously high tax rates on cars manufactured outside of the country. If someone wants want to get into the car
