I know a lot of people who don't get drag racing, and I always tell them it's awesome. I've been to two historic drag events here in Michigan this year, and I left both times with a smile, and almost bleeding ears thanks to the funny cars from the '70s. And then there's the altered wheelbases. They are easily near the top of the list of the coolest race cars out there.

Michelle Mouton, Shirley Muldowney. They're just two examples, but they both jumped into two of the most extreme types of racing and were amazing at it. I was/still am a photographer for a rally team here in the States, and our driver is a girl. She loves it, she drives her rally car all over town, and always tries to help out the crew when they're working on her car. There's a few female rally drivers in the Rally America that come and go, and they just enjoy racing. My mom is even a little into cars. She goes to rallies and on the rare occasion a car show. She didn't really grow up in a car centered family, her brother had some nice muscle cars, but she just kind of got into it herself and with my dad. Even some of my friends that are girls seem to understand cars a little more. One even wanted to try drifting in the snow once, that's when she buried my car in snow bank. But at least she was having fun with something automotive. I don't know if there's a point to that long comment, but I feel like I've been lucky with female car enthusiasts. Or at least semi interested in a way. You better believe my girlfriend, whenever that happens, will be surrounded by cars, and if she doesn't like them now, hopefully someday she'll show some interest. If not, no worries.

I've always loved the stuff I've seen from BTCC. I always remember the drivers just pushing each other like it was just part of the way to race. Then the way they just hop the curbs like it's nothing is awesome.

I have to say it, a waste of amazing breading. The drifting is cool, but not when destroying the amazingly tasteful baguette.

The thing I'd do for an oval window or split window….. And the one here so clean. Perfect. Although I'd have mine a little higher with the old dog dish whees and whitewalls, I can't deny that this one is pretty damn nice.

I used to play Midtown Madness back in the day like it was my job, and I had every mod and custom car out there. But the one I remember the most was the Rapid Fit Mondeo. I'm not sure why, but I think it was a mix of my young age and see a race car that sat so low but looked so good, and a car I've never seen before in America. I saw it as a cooler racing version of the Taurus. And the Nissan Primera brings up memories, but I can't pinpoint them other than just a feeling of my past.

I like how he went from a Beetle, to a Ferrari to a Lola. Talk about an epic history.


I've been complaining that racing is kind to the privateer anymore because of what he said, high price, non street legal, etc. But that is pretty awesome that he's trying to make a car that is a through back to the days of racing where anyone could race. That is probably the coolest thing someone can do in the car world like him with money and being well known. If I had the money for one, whatever it may cost and be, I'd be first in line to get one and race it everywhere and anywhere I could. I can't wait to see where it goes.


None of those were questions, I'm just amazed that someone had the same thought as me and is trying to change it.

My only negative note here is, don't show a story shot in the winter in August. I live in Michigan and the last thing I want to see on a nice warm August day is snow. And wasn't this the car at Air Lift in Michigan, or is this after your Michigan visit? Either way it's Michigan/Illinois snow, NO!


I like the car though, so clean.

I've been to Cars and Coffee Irvine four or five times, I think it's been there all but once. And I never get tired of it. The best part about C&C is the fact that every time I go all the cars are different, but this is like a staple for me, it's always there. And now I finally get really learn about it.

@itswhitenoise It's an awesome garage. People bring in their cars during the car show too. That alone is usually pretty crazy. A few years ago a guy brought in the most recent B.A.T. concept car from '08. Vettel's F1 car from the Detroit Auto Show this year showed up, you can never really guess what will show up until you get there. If you guys are ever around Ann Arbor, MI during the first of the month, I'll get you there. Happens every month!

There's a place like that here in Michigan kind of. It's an unmarked building filled with about 100 cars from a mid '80s Diablo to about five E-Types and Rolls and Cadillacs. It's a storage place for locals around, and every first Saturday of the month they have a car show, but the only way to know about it is if someone "in the know" tells you about it. Reminds me a lot of this place, just the one you guys have here, has a lot rarer cars and it's all one person. Very cool place though!

So cars like this are built in the peoples garages and stuff? I can't even fathom the cars I've seen here that people have built themselves. I mean, I had a hell of a time just just swapping out my clutch in my 240, but a lot of that is due to or incredibly cold winter here in Michigan we just had and the fact that our garage is only a two car and not heated. But the people in Scandinavia are just insane with their cars.

WHAT?! I've been to four or five, maybe six Irvine C&C and I haven't seen that good of a mix. And your claim, that has to be the best Cars and Coffee ever, and there's no Cars and Coffee that will ever come close to Irvine. We have a few different ones here in Michigan, and I honestly can't walk through them without comparing everything to this one. Although we do have one here that's like a scaled down version of this, but this one is king.


And on a side note, I think you're my favorite Speedhunter. Everyone here is awesome, but everything I really like, you always seem to cover or something comes up on your Instagram.

These wheels are nice for sure, but the wheels he had on this car before were way cooler in my opinion. I've always liked his cars, but honestly this car was my favorite just because of the wheels and how the gold worked so well with the blue. But oh well, nothing I can do.

I think we can all agree that the Gumball 3000 is still the best big, exotic car rally thing in the world though. But I'm bummed that I didn't know they were meant to be in Cleveland the last couple days.



On another note, is that GTR running Michigan tags? I've seen photos of a GTR on air at car shows before, plus their with Air Lift, so I'm assuming it is from Michigan.
