VIP x drift style S14 from Japan

For the last 15 years the S14 is considered to be one of the most modified FR platforms. Drift or grip, the car cemented its nameplate in the tuning scene with its countless aftermarket support. With the rise of fitment enthusiasts in the last 5 years, it has also been a solid choice due

Miura and Kato? Just Like Batman and Robin

“Love or hate the brand, Kei Miura and his fleet of bunnies are here to stay.” These were my final words from last year’s recap/interview post. The wide-body phenomenon may not be for everyone but it has been a mainstay in the car community. Judging from the builds I saw

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

Wekfest Japan 2015 – Photo Dump

A little late but our good friend, Ryo Kaneta, of USDM Freax magazine fame, sent me these photos from Wekfest Japan. As expected, Wekfest has chosen to host the event at Port Messe Nagoya. The Japanese came out to represent lovely and only brought the best. Ryo’s photos should give a
