Coffee over Beer

Last September 6, I decided to attend and check out some of the cars at the Manila Sports Car Club (MSCC) monthly meet. It is a gathering that I always wanted to attend to relax and see classic sports cars. But as a nocturnal, I spend time during Saturday evenings on

Offset Kings Japan, Nissan Style

If I could choose one Japanese car brand to drive forever, it would be a Nissan. For the past 10 years, Silvias and Skylines are the cars I pay closer and immediate attention during meets and shows. It has been a part of my automotive DNA and that’s what makes

The Star Road Hakosuka

How can a GC10 Skyline exceed its nameplate? With the different approaches on styling a ‘Hakosuka’ it is hard to decide which one looks best. It is a type of car that does not need the wildest modifications to stand out because of its cemented presence in the tuning scene.  Enjoy these

Fulfilling a Promise

How do I start? Friday night: I attended a late night meet with several friends from the car industry organized by a late great friend of mine, Iori Suzuki. While en route to the gathering he called me and asked if I was going to feature it for this site

VIP Style, Offset Kings Japan 2015

The presence of a well built ‘Bippu’ styled vehicle automatically marks a statement that other styling routes will have a hard time to match. VIP style originated in the early 90’s in Japan but due to the ‘power wars’ of that era, these cars only had the spotlight during the late noughties.  Thanks

One of my main goals during my recent trip to Japan is to shoot as much cars for this site and upon looking at my photos there are some builds that needs to be highlighted right away. One of my favorite cars during Offset Kings Japan 2015 was not a widen-out
