We love when we get submissions from you guys with your cars about your build stories, inspirations, goals and current status of your whips. As is such, Luis Alva from Winter Park, FL sent us some sick pics of his ’98 Mitsubishi Mirage – a nice change from what we normally see. For the last 3 years, Luis has been working hard on his Mirage and has come quite a long way with it. You’ll notice that he’s gone with the Evo V conversion and is currently on his way to swapping in the 4g63 with AWD in. His current [...]
Ever since the news release of Gran Turismo 5, I have always wondered how the skills we master in a game translate to the real world. Top Gear answers my burning question as well as the other million gamers who probably wonder the same thing. Geek, rebooted On a normal Thursday, Greger Huttu sits in the blue glow of a computer screen, in his bedroom in the teeny town of Vaasa on the west coast of Finland. In the afternoons, he joins his fisherman father to land a catch of perch netted from Arctic waters. But not today. Instead, he’s [...]

The mercury drops. The smell of the arctic air engulfs the roads of Canada, infused with the overwhelmingly visible cloud of exhaust fumes. After a long tease of “sorta nice” weather, winter finally makes its grim appearance on Canadian roads and for the (very, VERY lucky) readers that are enjoying plus degree weather, I envy you; frolicking in the sand, high-fiving your fellow surfers using lingo like “Hang Ten” or whatever it is you cool people say nowadays. While you enjoy the temperate weather, here we are scraping away frost from our windshields. But no matter. Even though people all [...]

|Words and Photos: Kevin Stachniak When you hear the growl of Greddy’s Ti-C exhaust, followed by the sound of Turbosmart’s Hybrid blow-off valve, a Mazda hatchback isn’t the first thing you expect to roll up beside you. Most people assume it’s a Mazda 3 and laugh out-loud ’cause they’re thinking “This fool is running a Honda S2000 Mazda 3…” However that becomes an apparent mistake when the car takes off, as the only thing that this tuned Mazda Speed3 GT shares with the Mazda 3 is the overall body shape. Lowered on Cobb Springs, and wearing 18″ Rota Formula Mesh [...]

|PHOTOS:Prashant Topiwala|WORDS:JC Tenchavez & Punit Patel “Black and Yellow, Black and Yellow, Black and Yellow, Black and Yellow” The unmistakable lyrics to Wiz Khalifa’s single is what comes to mind when Reggie’s car is spotted around town. Aside from it’s color motif, it’s unique stance definitely grabs the attention of anyone who notices it, as does it’s roaring Buddy Club Spec 2 exhaust. Inspired by Dal Law’s Integra Type-R, Reggie had his mind set on building one for himself. To set this project apart from the other Integras in Calgary, Reggie built this car with “form over function” in mind. [...]
