I have slowly realized I have a small addiction with classic cars. Whether they be European, JDM, American, or any other market, there is just something about a classic car that gets me every time. In this latest post a beautiful 240Z makes an appearance, with orange paint, fender flairs and Watanabe wheels. Line’s of a car like this will never get old.
It’s a beauty
I am really liking Depth of Speed is doing with their short web videos. Like I said before, you really get to see the the store behind the car and the passion of the owner. Also really cool to see his collection. A Datsun wagon and a Toyota pickup. Two very different and very unique cars that are equally cool.
ps- I would rock the crap out of that truck!
One of the most recognizable volkswagen’s to the enthusiast is usually the MK2. With classic body lines, numerous motor swap possibilities, and looking good on a ton of wheels, no wonder it’s so popular. With my brother trying to restore his own, I’ve been noticing parts are gettting harder and harder to find. I guess that just comes with a car that is so old. Anyways I came across this small bumper MK2 and thought it looked damn good. Not too sure if I would rock all white RS’ but they still do look good.
Got damn it’s perfect!
Of course, everyone’s definition of perfect is different, but for me a Porsche 993 Carrera with a roll cage and dropped on rare BBS motorsports wheels is perfect in every way. You have many options with this car now-a-days with RWB and of course the oem GT3/2 body cladding. But as a person who likes simplistic design sometimes simple is better. Of course if I had to choose between the two I would be driving home a RWB 993 but it’s because it’s probably the sickest thing on the road. But as far as oem, you just can’t get any better then a stock bodied 993. It’s just beautiful, and more importantly, timeless.
I’ll probably be busy all day tomorrow, so I’ll throw a quick post up here. Happy fathers day to all the dad’s out there! Keep up the good work! Below is a picture of my fathers favorite car, and a car I will buy him one day. The perfect combination of comfort and speed. Enjoy!
I have been talking a lot about car related videos and how they all seem to be the same. Don’t get me wrong, there are some talented guys out there, but I’m getting tired of seeing videos of a camera on a glidetrack going back and fourth the entire video. I’m not saying, if you produce a video it has to be an elaborate production, I understand people simply do it for fun. BUT those that do charge, eh, please continue to step your game up and better yourself. Props to those that do. I have ALWAYS been a fan of Stephen Brooks videos because he simply knows how to put together a perfect video. It takes a ton of skill to put together something so good. And for that I give him a lot of respect. Check out his latest addition, showing how a night vid should be done!
Now, I know that title is very controversial. Many people have very different views on building a “show car”. Some people aren’t fans of show cars and I am not here to disagree. I personally love when a car gets driven they are supposed to, but I also love full restoration type builds that are pieces of art when done. As someone who accepts VIP applicants for a car show, I think as a community, some have forgotten what a “show car” actually is. We have been overwhelmed with the popularity of air ride and “stance” that many think all they need to do is throw on a dope set of wheels and be super low, and they’ve got a show stopper. In many ways they do, since it’s what is so popular now-a-days. But like I said, we are seeing less and less full builds. Not too sure if it’s a bad thing just yet, but I hope we can all get back to really enjoying the journey of a build instead of looking for attention and internet fame.
Below is a perfect example of what I believe a show car really is. Details, details, details!! Many custom parts and shopping list of mods. This right now, is my favorite build of the year. And it’s going to be pretty hard to top, as you can see.
