A Holden 308ci V8 and BKT Monster Jam Tires, not what you’d expect to see on a tractor. A tractor isn’t something you’d ever expect to see on Speedhunters. Well, not something I ever did anyway. But when I saw this crazy creation during a visit to Smoke’m Garage recently, I knew I had to take … Continue reading “When Tractors Go Wild”

The Best Laid Plans Of Mice & Men That old saying, ‘The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry’ fits my latest cultural exploration in Indonesia perfectly. Because no matter how carefully one plans things out or dots the i’s and crosses the t’s, sh*t often has a way of messing things up. The plan was to … Continue reading “Going With The Flow In Indonesia”

As the saying goes, cars are meant to be a reflection of our personalities. Taking that literally, it means that the majority of the population have very boring and practical ones – which might be true. However, every now and then you meet someone who has really tried to create a piece of automotive machinery that … Continue reading “Two Completely Different Cars Built With The Same Ethos”

The origins of my love for automobiles can be traced to one car: a 1930 Model A Ford that I rescued from my parents’ garage.

It all started … Continue reading “I just woke my family’s 1930 Ford Model A from its 23-year slumber”

Every modification made to Juan Selguero’s 1978 Honda Civic has been thoroughly considered. And despite what you might think at first glance, a lot has been done – Juan is a master of detail. Juan got the classic Honda hatchback from his grandmother when he was 16 years old, but it took almost a decade before he decided to build it up … Continue reading “Subtle Is Everything In A B18 Swapped ’78 Civic”

The 280Z-06: If Datsun & Chevrolet Had A Baby

This S30 is a car that Sara and I came across late last year during ZCON Atlanta, which was a complete beast of an event. Not being able to attend this year, I looked back through my photos as I knew I had a couple of stories still lurking in the dark and dusty corners of my … Continue reading “The 280Z-06: If Datsun & Chevrolet Had A Baby”

The American M5, a Falcon for the US, a Mondeo with muscle, the four-door Mustang – the internet has been quick to bestow many titles upon Matt Soppa’s 2016 Ford Fusion. Let’s just say the hype is real. When this Fusion rolled off the assembly line, it was front-wheel drive and housed a 2-liter four … Continue reading “More Than Just A Swap: The Drift Fusion”

The Goodwood Revival is a lot like an onion. It has many layers.

Beyond the vintage racers in Goodwood’s paddock, beyond the … Continue reading “7 fantastic (and unusual) cars that prove the Goodwood parking lot is vintage heaven”

Whenever I go to events, I’m surrounded by cars. National concours, local shows, museums, auctions, swap meets— they all tend to center on four-wheeled fun. One of the best shows I attend, however, is the Barber Vintage Festival in Birmingham, Alabama. Now in its 15th year, it’s held annually in early October.
