Volk Wheels

As import enthusiasts, there’s a common tendency to complain about the lack of new prospect-cars on the market today. I can definitely lump myself in with this category of people. But maybe – just maybe, the problem is not with the new cars on the market today… maybe it’s how we, as tuners, look (or FAIL to look) at the new cars on the market today. Lately I’ve been coming to that conclusion.  Because a truth is – we are still passionately loyal & committed to manufacturers like Honda, for cars that they built 10-25 years ago… but do NOT build anymore. Do they really still deserve that loyalty? I don’t know – that’s an open ended question. But has time proven them to be loyal to us, the enthusiasts? The answer is a very sobering – no.
