Built for the Human Race – 4 door R32 Skyline (HCR32)

When I was a kid, sports cars were badass, untamed, and sexy. The car commercials on TV marketed performance. Hell - performance was mainstream! And Nissan was at the TOP of their game. Just look up this Nissan 300zx Superbowl commercial. Car brands based their...

Prentice Performance // Heaven Is a Place On Earth

Let’s go back in time... to the late 90’s. I was a kid. And the kid-version of me would trade in my chores for a trip to the local hobby store. It was my favorite place to go, as I was heavily into trains the first 6-7 years of my life. There was one shop in...

Wicked supercharged-to-turbocharged R53 Mini Cooper S

In the car world, saying “from humble beginnings” is a phrase that's often followed with someone’s explosion of e-fame stardom that leaves them with an inflated ego. While this isn’t always the case, in today’s day & age, it seems more & more that it’s...

Got Balls? (throwback feature from 2007)

Let's journey back... back to S3 Magazine circa 2007: -----You gotta have a big set when your goal is winning the NOPI Drift Championship. A great car and a large bank account are nice to have at your disposal, but if you don’t have the balls to risk both man &...

Lifted Civic Update #20: All About Verification

It's been an... interesting week to say the least. We went from making incredible progress on the car to nearly a standstill in the same week. As we went to test fit the CR-V axles, we realized that the bearings were improperly installed. They were loose and crooked....

The Never Selling Story

Chris Neranjan has owned this Hawkeye STI for over a decade. Notice - the trend of longterm ownership with STIs & Evos. These ultimate tuner cars of the 2000s car may have been a little pricey when they came out, sure. But they’re still pricey now. It was a good...

Holley’s Intergalactic Ford Fest 2020

Coming off Holley’s Intergalactic Ford Fest … I realized I learned a little something from my fellow Ford bros.  Number 1... Live in the moment. Truly BE where your feet are. And stop trying to live on/for social media. And… learn to rock the sh!t out of a mullet. ...

Static S13: Where there’s a Weds; there’s a way

Life is an adventure right? So metaphorically, carry an wide-eyed outlook on life similar to this S13 240SX Silvia: Go purple, go low, go wide, go big, and come through smiling. C’mon - it’d be naive (if not downright foolish) to think you could micromanage the whole...

Holley Ford Fest PT2

Here's a 2nd lesson that's been settling-in with me from Holley's Intergalactic Ford Fest: You don’t necessarily need to have the quickest / or cleanest / or highest horsepower car on the block. Sometimes ‘the best’ can honestly become a little expected &...
