@MatthewBortot Agreed. It's only ever women that want to make sure they are heard....why is that? Whenever something happens that offends women or where women need make a point, if you reverse the situation to involve men in the same way you can almost be guaranteed you won't hear a peep from the men of the world.

@Taryn Croucher You're rare, trust me....most girls that meet a car guy don't change themselves to accept his hobby, they want to change him and have him lose interest in the hobby. Has happened to most of my mates and it truly is sad....sad that women are like that and sad that men will weaken so easily.

Why is it that women always want to make themselves stand out in a male dominated sport/industry/hobby? Who cares if you're a woman, if you like cars then that's fine, and if you're called a female car enthusiast, why worry, it's exactly what you are. Do you think male nurses hate always being referred to as male nurses rather than just a nurse, no, probably not.

This is a serious question to those of you that have come in here to complain about the lack of SPEED in this feature and to whinge and hate, please answer if you read this.


Why is it that you'll click on this story and complain and sook about this site being all about power, speed, racing and fast cars only(in your opinion).....but you don't get in the feature on the little Honda Kei van and do the same? You must have targeted this car for some reason to lay down your whinge and I'm curious to know why?

@Sonny Jim Out of the 15 features on the homepage I only click on maybe half to have a look. I don't click on the things I don't care for, you should try doing the same. It really shouldn't bother you, you're not forced to look through this article to get to the next, so move on.


Also, too many people are caught up on the SPEED part of this websites name, it's just a name, it doesn't mean they MUST feature everything with power.

@Merc @Turbohaus Love it. I think people don't like it because they don't have the guts to do something like this or be seen driving it because it might hurt their swag. Gotta keep up with the Jonses in the car scene, and if you don't then no e-fame for you.....just do what you wanna do!

@Lachys114 I agree, why not have variety, simply don't click if you don't like. You don't see anyone on the Stanceworks blog complaining when they feature a fast/track oriented car, but Speedhunters fans complain about stance based cars on here....maybe that says more about the Speedhunters fans

IMO a wheel that can still be bought new doesn't fall under the collectable heading...Watanabe's for example. I don't feel they're all that cool either...common, yes, cool, no.

Not a fan of the headlights. They're too small and strange looking. They remind me of the light on the new IS Lexus and they're some of the ugliest headlight I've ever seen. Whatever happened to pop-ups, are they not allowed anymore?

I love those SL's.....there's an old lady around me that drives a super ratty original one that she's probably driven every day since new. I'd love to get it off her, put a nice set of 3 piece wheels on it, leave it ratty and just cruise it....I often wonder if she knows what it's worth or not.


Great article!!

I'd rather scoop my eyes out with a rusty spoon than do a V8 swap into something that was never meant to have one. So many more interesting and unusual motors to cross breed with, just my opinion of course.

@Luka024 @Brent I don't see it as a stupid comparison. Gene Winfield may be a legend now, but he wasn't at the beginning....at some point he started somewhere as a nobody, and I bet his first car was somewhat of a hack and his level of craftsmanship was pretty low! Although I don't see that Silvia as a hack, but anyway. Think of it as Gene starting out on a car about 20 years old from when he first began, it's really very similar. The big difference was that the internet didn't exist back then, because I bet if it did, he would have been hated on just as much as the Japanese guy....guaranteed!!!

INB4 people hating on this for not being Speedhunter-worthy. Take a pill, move along and don't worry about it. Speedhunters can feature whatever they damn well like. A Coke can on carrot stick suspension and toast for wheels.....if it's not your beef, just don't click.

@TarmacTerrorist  Absolutely. We can all blame the internet for what will be the demise of the car scene world wide due to hate and everyone needing to voice their opinions. We should all band together and get off the internet and get back to how it was 15 years ago, when no one really hated on anything because there was no way to do it....other than in person, which very few people will actually do. No troll.

I usually wouldn't comment on a story like this, and I'm sure I'll get flamed for this, but don't take it the wrong way as I love what I've read and seen here.


But to me this is more or less an old school version of that crazy Silvia with the Camaro front and E46 rear, to a degree anyway. The difference is the drift car gets driven hard, and regularly and these are bright, in your face cruisers.....yet somehow that Japanese guy's a knob and this guy's a legend. How so?

@Jagdroach @TarmacTerrorist  The Japanese don't call it anything, because they almost certainly don't hate on very many cars and respect everything everyone else is doing with very little hate, if any from my experience. They respect each other and don't care what other people do!! We could learn a lot from them.....that's why their culture is SOOOOOO broad!

I was going to come in here and LOL hard at this American abortion, but seeing as though it's Japanese it's A.O.K in my book, because they are allowed to be crazy. They invented the crazy drift car, so it's all good for me. Carry on crazy Japanese people!

@Motor Maniac  When you're 22 and you live at home with no outgoing costs apart from maybe a mobile phone, you can throw every single dollar you earn into a car. I built a big dollar car at that age, and 2 semi-decent builds before it. I could have almost bought a small house outright for the amount of cash I threw into 3 or 4 cars before I hit 25! As for the skill, I guess it comes with practice and having others help you along the way.

@kphillips9936 @Matt Jones @Spaghetti You see that's the thing though, what offends some, may not offend others, it's all subjective. For me that beetle is offensive. It's "stance" is whack, so is the V8 and the fact that it's a fatty. I don't like Corvettes of any kind, and the 2 RX7's pictured are not to my taste.

I love a nicely slammed beetle, this is no exception.

I love ratty beetles, however I do not love fake patina.

I was reminded of the killers mask from SCREAM when I spotted his ear lobe in the 5th photo.

Why is a beard now known as a hipster beard(as someone on here commented), can't men just enjoy their face pubes?


Why must people hate on SH for running an article like this. I care not for the Kiwi Kuda feature, or the Hoonigan article(what even is Hoonigan?), or the drifting SLS article so I don't click on them, let alone get in there and have a massive whinge.

Why were the comments disabled for the E36's? I like them, now that I know the back story, I'd prefer it if they were M3's rather than $500 jalopies, and the wheels specs of 17x10.5 -30 and -60 were a bit dubious to me, or was that with 30mm and 60mm spacers? I'd go the Nomad and the A7 to round out my top 3.
