  • Why Hot Rod?

    By Jive-Bomber It seems like a simple enough question- Why hot rod? Why do we love these wheeled things and spend so much blood, sweat, tears, and cash on them?… continue reading » Continue Reading… Source:: Jalopy Journal…

  • The Rotary-Powered Fiat 124

    By Paddy McGrath Before I delve into the Fitted Friday IV judging experience, I want to share what just might be the most random encounter of my Speedhunters career so far. First, let me set the scene… It is beautiful Friday morning in Sydney; it’s almost winter time but the sun is still shining and it’s pleasantly mild. We’re in […] The post The Rotary-Powered Fiat 124 appeared first on Speedhunters. Continue Reading… Source:: SpeedHunters…

  • Rennsport: The Australian Edition

    By Blake Jones The management at Porsche must really be on a high right now. With the memory of a near-collapse in the early ’90s and a 2009 debt crisis still fresh in their memories, the company has never been more profitable. I’ll hesitate at suggesting outright causality, but mirroring the financial growth has been a swell of passion around […] The post Rennsport: The Australian Edition appeared first on Speedhunters.

  • A Blue Whale With A Touch Of Yankee

    By Dino Dalle Carbonare If I was to embark on a new Speedhunters project car using a cool, old Japanese vintage car as the base, I’d probably go down the route of something rather big, plush and luxurious. The prices that old V12-powered Toyota Centurys are commanding these days have made them beyond affordable, but I’d still love to slam the hell out of […] The post A Blue Whale With A Touch Of Yankee appeared first on Speedhunters.

  • What We’ve Been Watching…

    By TheSpeedhunters First up, we have a new short film from EKanoo Racing… We’ve seen plenty of fast ETs being set by the Bahrain-based drag racing team over the past few years, but some they’re most proud of are those run by their R35 Nissan GT-R. And rightly so – there is no quicker GT-R or all-wheel drive machine on the […] The post What We’ve Been Watching… appeared first on Speedhunters. Continue Reading… Source:: SpeedHunters…

    By Paddy McGrath But when you consider the contribution that the Australian car scene makes to global car culture in spite of some of the most extreme adversity known to any enthusiast, it seems that they deserve some proper recognition. You may already be familiar with Fitted Friday on Speedhunters; Blake covered last year’s event – and in style […] The post In Sight: Roll-In At Fitted Friday IV appeared first on Speedhunters.

  • Project GTI: Just Add Air

    By Paddy McGrath In case you aren’t up to speed with this project, you might want to catch up with last month’s update first. Done? Good, let’s kick things off. There’s quite a bit to get through… I’ve already made my case for why I think an air suspension setup is the correct path for my car, so it’s […] The post Project GTI: Just Add Air appeared first on Speedhunters.

  • Goldrush Customs’ GX71 Corona

    By Dino Dalle Carbonare But just like the Daytona-style SA22C RX-7 and Team Maranello RPS13 180SX I’ve already shown you this week, it only took a few minutes looking over this GX71 Corona Mark II created by a little shop in Machida called Goldrush, to know that I had to share it with you. When it comes to mid-’80s Japanese […] The post Goldrush Customs’ GX71 Corona appeared first on Speedhunters. Continue Reading… Source:: SpeedHunters…

  • A Rodding Rarity

    By J.Ukrop It’s no secret that rare cars can make great hot rods. Some people consider them forbidden fruits, and other view them as perfect rodding fodder. They’re a way… continue reading » Continue Reading… Source:: Jalopy Journal…
