Nick’s SC400 A Timeless Classic

One of my all time favorite Japanese cars is the Lexus SC300/400 or in Japan it would be the Toyota Soarer. The sleek long body style combined with the awesome lines of the car made me fall in love with this car. This long Lexus gets even better when it’s slammed to the ground with…

Lowballers Japan

 In the north side of Japan, there lies a group of friends who are inspired by the U.S. clean and simple look of modifying cars. They are the Lowballers Japan and they roll around in their city with cars that would fit so well in the United States. When I was over there visiting, it…

Wekfest LA 2013

Another day in paradise…summer is here and the car shows are starting to roll in. I would say Southern California is the mecca of the car scene and this week, we were blessed with Wekfest LA. It was held in the beautiful city of Long Beach at the historic Queen Mary, where the weather was…

The Confused Race Car

 Everything in life is a learning process. When getting into a hobby, one does not automatically know what they are doing from the get go. It takes time, patience, and a lot of internet haters to form your own style. It took two years for John Tran to figure out that he was in love…
