Offset Kings Okayama pt.1

Our last show of the year happened in Okayama, Japan just last week. I have to say, I was really reluctant to host a car show in Japan in December. The weather was the major factor because if you don’t know, December in Japan is very cold. And after arriving

The Hiroshima Bomber

TRA-Kyoto. It may be hard to stand out from the rest with the growing number of S-Chassis on a 6666 designed kit. Don’t get me wrong, but I still believe that Rocket Bunny kits really do look good, if not the best. But Takashi Mine‘s add-ons made his PS13 distinct

I had the privilege on shooting the ‘CarGuy‘ F40 during the Japan Motor Games at the Fuji International Speedway. The Tokyo based group is responsible for bringing in exotics to the paddock while living to the motto “no to garage queens”. On to the photos. The founder of the group stretched his

The Hectopascal Silvia

Some build cars to stand out from the rest, mostly go with the trends and there are a few who build with their own taste. With all the beautiful Silvia‘s I encountered during my recent trip to Japan, Ty Okamoto‘s S14 stood out because of its simple approach. With the

S-24K DIPPED

When you think of fixed up import cars in the world, Winnipeg Manitoba is probably not the first thing that comes to mind. Places like California, Japan, Hawaii, New Jersey are all suspect to the import bug but Winnipeg? Well Danville Dingel’s S2000 featured here is from Winnipeg and will
