We grew up deep in Baptist Christianity, as our father has been a pastor since as far back as either of us can remember. As we became men, we both found a new church – one that was more akin to the

Ireland’s Corolla Outlaws

Californian Vibes In Bavaria: Germany’s First Luftgekühlt

There’s nothing that’s pushed the hype around Porsches more than the event based in California called Luftgekühlt, so my excitement was high when I first heard that it would be coming to Europe. Since

The moment that keeps drawing me back time after time like an addict. Through fields and rivers, over hills and gates in search of a worthy spot, this one moment makes it feel almost reasonable. Early

Taking A Chance On MPACT

A quick look outside revealed stormy skies and a damp ground. Do I bother hopping into my freshly detailed M3 and making the long drive? Would anyone even show up? I debated it, because among the BMW

Taking The Time To Build An RX-7 The Right Way

I had just come back from spending a year overseas and hadn’t owned a car since my last RX-7 took an unexpected trip to JDM heaven after an unlucky accident. I felt it was time to get back into my

A Chance Encounter At Mobara

At first I noticed his car; a white Nissan 180SX sporting all sorts of custom track-oriented aerodynamics and riding at just the right height before functionality slips away. I was so intrigued by all

The friends behind the operation, Duarte Viana, Savio Silva and Joel Garcia, created Drift HQ as a hub for drift car parts and education. They care about the local community, and as part of that

How They Supra In Germany

Appreciate The Process; Enjoy The Result

It didn’t matter which version, I just told myself that I needed to get one. But I never thought that dream would actually become a reality. I got Veena, my Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X, in 2015. She

Buying Your Dream Car at 22 Years Old

Watching VHS recordings of French driver Jean Ragnotti and seeing how fast the Renault was in the hands of a professional taking on the best in the World Rally Championship, Jeremy promised himself

Building A Community & An Acura NSX

Guam and the Philippines are very much alike; they both enjoy crystal-clear beaches, barbeque parties, and a close-knit car community. As the connected global car culture is often talked about on

I wasn’t searching for a Hachiroku again; I wanted something older, but on the other hand I already knew the AE86 community and had a few tricks to make the old Toyota a little more entertaining.
