For the past 15 years and since the birth of Fatlace.com, I’ve worked on personal and not so personal project cars. 2015 wont be any different. We’ll be teaming up with some of the best companies that specialize in making top shelf products. Voomeran, Work Wheels, KW and Falken are
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
Another RWB Porsche 993 is born. Some may say these cars are extreme, boring, played out, etc but to the owners, including myself, owning one isn’t just about the car. It’s about the overall experience from A to Z watching your car transform. Fishbone is the latest RWB from China.

Hypebeast produces this Porsche X Acronym retrospective leveraging the new Porsche 911 991 SLS starring Errolson Hugh’s, founder of Acronym. Both brands focus on building it great or don’t build it at all. An attitude that has gained much respect from doing so.
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
