After a very, very long hiatus we decided to freshen up our blog and keep all of our followers updated with what’s going on this year. We have a ton of plans in place and ready to show everyone what our hard work has produced. We’ll show you a very small preview of a project we’ve been working on that will release this spring. If you check out our Facebook page, you’ll see we have an obsession with fashion and we plan on expanding on this obsession. Until then!…
As classic Japanese and European car fanatics we thought it was natural for us to put a proper car show together for everyone that shares the same enthusiasm on the East Coast. We added a twist to bring some fun to the show and created a competition between the Japanese and European car owners. To put it simply, each competitor on side that comes out the hardest wins something to take home. And, not to mention the bragging rights until next year. Bring out your classic ride and enjoy the day surrounded by the best classic JDM and European cars on the East Coast!
Awards will be given out for the best of each car category
Best Mercedes Benz
We anticipated some of the questions that would be brought up on acceptable cars, so we created a list of acceptable cars that we considered classics. In general all Japanese and European cars 1993 and older are accepted, but there are plenty of cars we consider classics and/or were manufactured in 1993 and continued being made past that year.

I’m back! As you can see its getting harder for me to post up here, but I haven’t forgotten about you guys!
I came across this Porsche 924 scouring the interweb and had to share. We’ve seen a couple of Europeans building these uber cool highly modified air-cooled swapped cars and they seem to just continue to get cooler(fully intentional pun). As a fan of all odd and un-popular cars this makes so much damn sense. The 924, not being the greatest car Porsche built I hope people can understand the crazy transformation. Regardless, the quality and quantity of work is really amazing on this car and rear-engineed or not, its probably one of the better 924’s I’ve seen. You have to give props to the builder for committing to such a out-of-the-ordinary project. Major Success!
It took me a damn long time to come up with that title, believe me. Even though I’m pretty sure the Miata gay/hairdresser jokes are reserved for the uneducated, you can’t help but think of them whenever you see one. I’ve been wanting a NB for a while now and this one may just put me over the edge. Firstly the over-all theme is pretty much perfect, with its military inspired greenish-mud color. As many of you know I have a deep soft spot for Watanabes and the fitment on this piece is killing. Anyone have a clue what company makes the fender flares? They sure do fit the car and its theme very well.
Anyone else peep the cable cutter on the roof?!?? Something that is used on helicopters. So dope!
What the **** is going on here!? See, I was brought up in the Bronx, which means I really get that being a total-bronx bad ass means having a chromed out Gixxer 1000 with a stretch and a fat rear tire so you can do long rolling burnouts. I get it. The “exotic” bikes were and still are very much left alone. Now I’ve seen customized cafe style Ducati’s but nothing to this extreme. Don’t get me wrong I think these bikes are beyond awesome looking, but we all know there are a group of Ducati loyalists plotting their revenge as this is being written. The looks just can’t be denied with an already beautiful Duci being dropped on its stomach and stretched out to next year. Oh god this is just too GOOD! Any one else would LOVE to see more of this?
btw, you guys peep the rear brake setup in-between the wheel and the frame?!?!?!?!? Explain!!
I usually don’t post up super high-end technology here, but I had to make the exception for this video. It’s been proven over and over again that technology always, eventually trickles down to affordable sports cars. Something like transmission technology is always important because it’s one of the few things that haven’t been completely perfected. We have these super fast, blink of the eye type deals, but nothing this precise, instantaneous, and more importantly, giving the ability to transfer massive amounts of power correctly. I think Koenigsegg is one exotic car company that is overlooked when it comes to pushing forward innovation. As you can see this is something that is thought-up and built in house. That says A LOT about the minds behind this company and it’s cars. It’s think it’s time we take Koenigsegg a little more serious.
I’ll keep this simple. You ever, really, I mean really, wanted to see how it felt to be a race car driver minus the bathroom breaks and food eating? (Or maybe your in to that kind of thing. I won’t judge.) Well t he video below is pretty damn close to it. Due to super modern technology, via go-pro(I think), you can see pretty much what racing is like from the eyes of a driver. It’s a fairly long video, but I thought it was cool enough to post, so your going to watch the whole thing. K Thanks Bye!
Back guys! I really am sorry for that break in posts. Like I’ve said before, we’ve got a lot of planning for this year to not only give you better content, but some awesome products.
This past weekend I went with a friend to a private event to show the new Aston Martin Vanquish. Of course, being surrounded by millionaires, whipping out a dsrl just didn’t seem natural. So I just blended in for the day, talking about yachts and gold plated caviar, or what ever millionaires talk about. The Vanquish, a beautiful full carbon bodied sex machine that sounded just as good as it looked. It’s hard to explain the awesome exhaust note, but I highly suggest visiting a dealer and bugging them until you get them to turn on one. But enough run-on sentences. As we were checking the car out the real surprised walked in the door, Mr Ralph Lauren himself. Being a super fashion addict, I was star struck. Fully clad in Polo sweats his visit was about 10 minutes long (and I’m sure he order three Aston’s in that time). We went out to check what he decided to drive that day and was in love with his selection. A uber-limited white Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0. A seriously rare car for a equally rare appearance for one of the greatest designers. We happen to catch him on his way out, chatted for a minute and managed to snap a pic of him getting in the Porsche.
The best iPhone photography I can provide!
Ok, that title is slightly ignorant, but I’m sure every F1 fan was extremely happy to see the new LaFerrari with the fairly new KERS system in its newest hypercar. By the way, 2013 really seems to be the year of the Hypercar, with many exotic car company’s coming out with really impressive (but mostly expensive) cars. Maybe I’m getting old, but it sure does seem like the future is here now, the amount of technology and the availability of it is staggering. Innovation is not slowing down the least bit, and its really exciting to live through. Back to the LaFerrari, I seriously can’t wait to see how it actually performs. Its going to be interesting to see just how much faster the KERS system makes it. You know, for a couple of years every hard core car guy hated the thought of hybrid sports cars. But I personally think that in this case, joining a monstrous V12 with a smaller hybrid system is well, cool. The hybrid system hasn’t taken away from the car in any way, so its something that looks promising.
I’m not going to act like I understand half this stuff, but it sure is cool to see and at least, try and understand.
Bosozoku is one ugly styling of modding. I mean, let’s all be honest here before we show our respect. It’s crazy, super duper wide fenders, wings that don’t clear most underpasses, front lips that can plow the snow off most driveways in one pass, and so on. Yes, this style of modding is something that has been in Japanese culture for generations, and for that we should all show the up-most respect for the people that do mod their cars in this way. It sure does take a ton of commitment to do such extreme modifications to a ride. But its done. On the other side of things, I could never see myself ever doing anything close to that, but you can always find inspiration and styling cue’s from these cars. That brings me to the car below. This teal 80’s goodness known as the Mark II Celica Supra we can all agree looks awesome. BUT WAIT! Look at those fenders! Them fenders are straight out the the bosozoku handbook, and hey, the car still looks really good. Simple, clean styling always seem to translate well no matter how it’s done. Then again who wouldn’t want a properly done super flaired out Supra? That’s what I thought…
