There is something serene about this S14 drifting on an open track. Thanks to Casey from Shirtstuckedin for taking this picture.
I painted a set of blue wheels for Project Kyoko, but these would look so much nicer! Alas…$$$
The F20C swap is nothing new and as a matter of fact, the F20C swap into a 1st generation Celica has been done plenty of times.
This one has to be my favorite. I’ve seen this car in person and saying that it is flawless is an understatement.
This is how it started off: (Yes, the photo is a bit tweaked. Do not adjust your screens)
I’m 50/50 on whether I love/dislike Speedhunters content, but this one hits the nail of the head. Plus Dino is an awesome photographer. Check out more of his awesome photos here on Speedhunters.
Davin’s post of the Lamborghini creeping out of a driveway resonated with me as my
newest most recent addition to the fleet is at stock ride height but scrapes over everything. That’s the exhaust in the picture above. It’s about three and a quarter inches off the ground.
These exhaust clamps dangled another half inch or so lower, making this car able to drive over things only a little thicker than a crushed soda can without scraping.
Some quick hacksaw work increased the ride height to a streetable level. I can’t go anywhere near a speed bump though. Speed bumps, it appears, are a newer invention than is this car.
Stay tuned for a formal introduction. You’ll be seeing a lot more of this car.
Depth of Speed has released a new video about an instructor at the Art Center College of Design and his recently acquired 1970 Skyline GT-R. The video is a feast of straight 6 symphonies. I found a bonus video with track footage of this car too. This “Hakosuka” was bought from Salt Lake City’s JDM Legends – here’s their blog post about the sale of the car and its adventure road tripping 700 miles to its new home.
Isn’t the sound this thing makes great? These cars originally came equipped with a 2 liter twin cam straight six that made 160 horsepower. This car does not appear to have its original engine; the JDM Legends post makes reference to this car having an L28 – one of the pictures shows a single cam straight six in this car’s engine bay. The L28 is most commonly found in the 280Z and is a fine engine for this car, especially when fitted with a trio of Weber or Mikuni carbs.
This car is super unique, undeniably cool, and certain to draw admiring crowds wherever it goes. Be sure to check out the JDM Legends website. This shop is one of the first places I’d call after winning the megahellalotto, “First generation Celica with an 18RG please”.
Found this photo on Noriyaro, and I just found it odd to post now that my girlfriend has a SW and I have my NA6. I hope our cars never end up like this…
I’m normally 50/50 on the NC Miata, but I’m really feeling Rob Bauer’s DP MX-5. Loving the livery, fenders and the rollbar. Perfect. You can tell this is a car that he build by himeslf, for himself.
I bet that this would be a blast to drive through the cones, or on the track. (Man, makes me want to get an NC… but only for this though.)
BMW just revealed this jaw-droppingly stunning double bubble equipped coupe. I’m in love with it, I really am. Hit the link below to visit BMW blog for the story and a bunch more photos.
Readers know that I just recently self-painted some blue wheels that I haven’t fitted on the car. I’m going to put them on this weekend, because I’m going to visit a local car meet, and figured that this would be as good of a time as any.
If my wheels look half as good as this, then I’ll be pretty happy. Maybe I’ll mount them tonight…
Found on F1 Fanatic
Jean-Eric, I may have to copy this design, because I am loving it. Simple and clean.
Found this Miata on AUTOnGRAPHIC ’s FB page. I’m loving the overfenders and the wheel choice here.
I found this Miata on Rust-in-Stuff’s tumblr, and I’m loving the white on white. I do love simple-looking N/A Miatas.
I saw this photo on the Motorsports Retro Facebook stream and it made me smile. Senna and the NSX are two great things that go great together.

Now this is just a rendering, but is this something that you would like to see someone build? I personally would, as I love any car in the JPS livery.
From the beginning of time, I’ve been a fan of Raul-Welt Porsches. I’ve already done some posts on why I respect Nakai-san, and his desire to build his version of the perfect car. I just noticed that I had a lot of photos of Raul-Welt Porsches saved on my drive, and I decided that I wanted to share them with you.
Note: I didn’t take any of these photos, but one day I will go to Japan and take some myself.
Yeah, so I totally stole the title and the photo from Dorifutoo, but this R32 is too cool not to show you. (And hey, that’s what hyperlinks are for. )- Internet respect, given.
