A Dream Night Drive In RWB Hachioji - Speedhunters

That was the first time a car had ever captivated me in such a powerful and unexplainable way. Between the rich history of Nakai-san’s journey with RWB and the incredible machines that he was producing, it’s obvious why seeing these things left such a huge impact on me. Ever since then I’ve been chasing that feeling of …

Make Your Own Fun: The Curborough Sprint Day - Speedhunters

Events are a huge part of the automotive culture. Whether they are totally static shows or feature some element of driving, they allow us to draw inspiration for our own cars and meet with like-minded enthusiasts. For me personally, events where cars are in motion are far preferred. So with that in mind, over the summer …

A Shakotan Cressida Built By A French-American Man - Speedhunters

One of my favorite private games is to look at a group of people and guess what cars they drive. I like to imagine I’m often correct. If you found Billy, the owner of this 1978 Toyota Cressida, at a grocery store, you’d easily match him to his car in the parking lot. Frankly, he’s handsome and cool …

American x Japanese Car Life At Kadena Air Base - Speedhunters

What was I thinking? How is that even possible? The truth is, I don’t even know. I guess, whenever I’ve gone on vacation or taken a break, I have always just travelled to another country and indulged in a proper out-of-Japan experience. But a few weekends ago, a bunch of very cool guys from the Okinawa …

E.Prime's Silky-Smooth Silvia S13 - Speedhunters

OK, maybe not completely different in the grand scheme of things, we’ve seen plenty of custom Silvias here on Speedhunters after all, but this S13 restomod is the polar opposite of what you might expect to see come out of the Total Create E.Prime garage. It’s no secret that the Toyota AE86 (and AE85) platform is where Eiji …

Sideways In A 500whp Toyota Celica Supra - Speedhunters

With the rise in values of Japanese performance car icons in particular, I can see why. However, some people out there still like to throw these cars around like it’s 2005. People like Tore Leithe. Born and raised in Norway, the 25-year-old ATV/snowmobile mechanic is no stranger to old Toyotas. In fact, Tore has owned a …

A Stroll Through The R31 Kingdom With Shibata-San - Speedhunters

Part 2 is coming, but first, I need to take you on a tour around the ‘R31 Kingdom’. On my previous two visits to Shibata-san’s vast facility in the Gifu countryside I was pretty much left to my own devices, but this time around it was extra special. Shibata-san strolled with me, which provided the perfect opportunity …

The Group-D Audi S1 Lives - Speedhunters

Over seven years in the making, the Group D D-MAC Audi S1 finally lives. Is this a car worth the wait?

The A-Messe Japan Spotlight Selection - Speedhunters

But that fact brings about its own challenges when putting together a post like this one. I can never make my mind up; there are just too many great cars to choose from. So, as always, the cars I’m about to share with you may not be the fastest, the most highly tuned or even the coolest, but they are …
