Touge Runner || Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R V-Spec

By | Featured | Comments

Okay boys and girls, admittedly we’ve been teasing you all with Skylines over the past couple of months: we’ve showcased some pretty amazing R33′s with some fairly serious modifications but, for me at least, this is the big one. Whatever your Skyline preference, there’s no denying that the R34 garners the most attention, both good and bad. Its’ situation in the U.S. is tumultuous to say the least, with an illegal Grey imports business resulting in the R34 becoming outlawed, it’s infamous in the truest sense. However, despite all of the bureaucracy and red tape, the R34 is more than a middle finger to the suits and briefcases: it personifies affordable supercar-beating performance in arguably one of the most attractive packages ever to come from Japan.

The Jaded One || Nissan Skyline R33 GT-R

Yes we’re once again coming at you straight from Japan, continuing our Okinawa series we’re bringing you another Nissan Skyline, but this time it’s a little bit different. The previous two cars from Okinawa we shot, wrote about and presented to you were built and owned by US natives who have settled in Japan after a career in the armed forces. Not to take away anything from those guys, their cars are certainly both awesome, be sure to check those builds out on the site too, but this time we’re featuring a car from a Japanese native. The jdm scene after all is not just the cars but the influence and style from Japan that goes along with it, so this build is perhaps the most indicative of all as to what jdm really is. Read More

Straight From the Source || Subaru Impreza WRX STI RA

Now, as I sit here writing this latest piece for you all to enjoy reading, I have a bit of an inner conflict brewing as how to start this off. On the one hand I could go in depth about the Impreza’s history: how Sainz and McRae tore across continents in world rally iterations of the scooby in the 90′s; how this is a 4wd rally car for the road, how the evo/impreza battle of the 90′s waged on in the stages and the street, so on and so forth, overused cliche after overused cliche, I’m even guilty of doing this myself. But, perhaps for a change, I’ll just save you from the history lesson and get to the point. This is owner Richard Duwel’s 1999 GC8 Impreza Sti RA limited and, I’ll be straight, it’s bloody awesome.
