New England’s Hidden Gem – Maine Line Exotics

A lot of people love New England because of the old American feel. Buildings that were built in the 1800’s still have that old authentic look but are usually renovated inside to have a newer, more comfortable interior and to make them energy compliant. There are some nice beaches around the New Hampshire and Maine coast but the water is… Read more →


Drift Spot NHMS – April 2014

My faith in drifting is slowly being restored. I attended a small event in New Hampshire that really put a smile on my face. Drift Spot has been hosting drift clinic since 2009 and still going strong to date.

Manufacturer’s Delight

Flocks of shrieking seagulls loomed overhead as the fog horn from a nearby container ship blared into the salty sea air of Long Beach Harbor. The soft patter of waves hitting the break water was rather soothing as we nervously started backing Josh Rozsa’s Nissan S13 into place.

How did America ruin drifting?

I guess you clicked on this article thinking that I have the answer, but I don’t. It’s more in the tune of, “Why do I feel like America has ruined drifting?” Drifting began back in the 70’s. Back then however, it wasn’t considered a sport, but more of a technique. It wasn’t until the late 80’s that drifting became popular… Read more →


Akira – Rauh-Welt Begriff, Manila

As some of you know, I have been out of the car scene for quite a while. So everything that has came out recently, like Liberty Walk‘s luxurious projects, Rocket Bunny‘s FR-S, Rauh-Welt Begriff‘s Porsche’s, are all foreign to me. I have only seen pictures and features online, but never in real life. Until I visited Ian at Car Porn… Read more →
