Twin-Turbo Right-Hand-Drive Chevy II Nova

 

There’s no ‘out of bounds’.

If you want to be in a box, then go join some boxed-in social media car page. Ya’ll can go create elitism & exclusivity around yourselves where there is none. Gaze at each other’s little weenies & convince yourselves they’re pretty big actually.

But that’s not what we do here.

Call us old school, archaic, or even out of touch. We’ll take it as a compliment.

Because this magazine… this ‘printed’ magazine… it’s not about any one genre. That’s where you screwed up. It’s not about an import, or a domestic. It’s not about drift, or Euro, or USDM replicating JDM replicating USDM… or any of that sub-subcultured nonsense. This mag is all about a certain mentality. And it’s NOT a mentality of conformity. 

Chevy II Nova

From Day-1, conformity & approval was NEVER what the import culture was about. Yet look at y’all now.

…Like a bunch of toddlers in coloring class – looking back for the teacher to tell you how good you’re doing. Well – it’s Sucker Day boys & girls.

“I’ve had this car 13 years now. It was a 6-second 1/8 drag car when i bought it, but I changed it up from drag, to more of a street/strip setup. …Even auto-crossed it. It’s had 6 different engines and 5 different transmissions over the years. But as I’ve gotten more & more interested in drift culture… I wanted the Nova to reflect some of that styling & attitude. I wanted something I could take to any show across any demographic. A car that would fit in anywhere, but stand out everywhere.”
