Hello all!! A few small changes for the coming new year for the blog! Firstly It has been re-named True Driving, as this is our brand and we’d like to consolidate names to bring less confusion to our viewers. I really like to thank everyone who has followed and still follows this blog. The content will still be exactly the same, and it is still written by the same person, it is simply just a name change.
It has been an amazing year, filled with ups and downs, and I am extremely grateful for everyone that I have spent it with and everyone I have met. There are some awesome people in this community and I thank God for each of them and what they have contributed to it. 2013 will be another amazing, and exhausting year that will be filled with surprises and new ideas. I really cant wait to show you guys what we have in store and to see what everyone else bring to the table. I love to see when everyone steps their game up. It’s all about the friendly competition that keeps us building.
FYI – we still own the tunedmotion.com domain, and it will link to the same blog if it’s typed in. No worries!
I really love when you get an inside look into someone’s personal car collection. Every one is different and it’s always cool to see what influences each purchase. I have to say, Mr Griot has one of the most awesome “small” collections I’ve seen. I love when an enthusiast level brings you to love and buy a 80’s BMW M3 and Indy race car in the same room. Buying a car sometimes goes beyond the car.
Watch and enjoy this guys tremendous collection, and get a inside look into Griots Garage.
These Porsche 944’s are seriously getting popular. I’m pretty sure it’s the cheapest running Porsche you can currently get, so it makes sense that this fun machine is getting popular. Sure it’s not the most reliable car, or the easiest to work on, or the cheapest to fix, but hey that’s what owning a Porsche is all about. From what I’ve seen and heard it’s an awesome car to own once you get a the bugs worked out. Plus, there is a LSx swap kit available for it. You really can’t look with reliable horsepower and german handling.
Imagine this wide 944 with a LSx swap. It would own the track!
I’ve really been posting a ton of videos, but I can’t help put post good content. I think odd vintage finds have been really pushing me over the edge when surfing the net. I find myself constantly looking for odd, old cars I have never heard of, or a car in a color combo that is just way too cool to resist. I thought it was pretty awesome after SO MANY years this guy seemed to find a car his father owned before a war. Pretty crazy when you think about it.
Btw, a very Merry Christmas to all of my viewers, a couple key changes going to be in place very soon, so stay tuned!
When you are passionate about something, it may as well be an addiction. Many times it’s something that people don’t get. Heck, a lot of people don’t understand the addiction to cars. So I’m sure not many will understand an obsession with car radios. But everyone has something they are passionate about. Some odder then others. I kind of dig how knowledgeable this guy is about vintage radios. It’s a pretty cool if your into period correct restos. Check it out. Find your passion.
There are a ton of Isle of Man videos out there. But it seems they are either highlight reels or crash reels. Sure it’s exciting but it leaves wanted more depth of the event. This is one of the first video’s I’ve seen that does just that. It’s not hard to see that each one of these riders are absolutely out of their minds, which makes then the bravest people in the world. I mean just look at the speeds they are hitting on public roads. Seriously want to go to see this race in the very near future.
When you think of creating an American muscle car, for the most part, you think of building a mean, dark and badass car. I guess due to the history of muscle cars and it’s themes this is kind of just how it has been. It really hasn’t been until recently where builders have gotten really creative with color combinations with interiors and wheels. It think it’s awesome when we see new and different sides of how a car is built. Sometimes a look we would have never thought would have work, but does. The White Camaro below really shows your car can still look badass and not be black with blood red accents and a tattoo’d owner. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. With an awesome stance this Camaro is all class and badass.
I’m a sucker for automotive history, especially when it’s about such an iconic car. If your a car enthusiast the Skyline for some is the end all be all. Heck, for many years, the Japanese didn’t even allow Hakosuka’s to even leave the island. It was and is such an honored car. It’s awesome to see where it all came from, through Prince Motor Company, and the influence of the race track. Keeping up with some of the fastest cars of it’s time must have been an amazing feat and is what would bring on it’s HUGE popularity and success. And as they say, the rest is history.
I have always been a huge fan of all things fashion, and it’s pretty incredible how, just like many other things, it can be influential in the automotive world. I have gone back and fourth about posting fashion related topics, and I think it would be beneficial to the blog and learning more about what True Driving is all about.
This fall/winter season has really left me stuck on an addiction to all things tweed. The combination of patterns and and colors is really limitless. It gives such a warm look in the months where, well we like to be warm. Something that is equally impressive as tweed is herringbone and the way it is made. Just take a look at this video, and you can see the amount of effort that goes into making this pattern. Even if you know nothing about fashion you can just see how impressive a machine this is. Holy crap that pattern is beautiful.
Before I start, there are some changes that are going to be happening to this blog. Mainly a name change. It really makes no sense to have the blog’s name different from the facebook page, so in an effort to consolidate, the blog will be named True Driving. This change will comes around the new year. I will keep the “tunedmotion” domain to avoid losing viewers. Thanks guys!
I really can’t get enough of vintage/old school cars. There is so much unexplainable character in each car, which makes them attractive in more ways then the visual. It’s the touch, it’s the feel, it’s the sound. You senses are on overload every time you drive an old car, and it’s just something you simply can’t experience with a new car. What makes this “tougher” is when you see a car you love, but what never available in the states. A perfect example of this is the Toyopet Corona from the 60’s in Japan. Such a beautiful machine that it is a classic that truly stands the test of time. Lower nicely on a set of equally classic SSR’s and you have yourself a car you will find impossible to part with.
