Cars are my passion and my whole life revolves around them! I started blogging about my automotive-related adventures back in 2010, and haven't looked back since! :)
@Nikhil_P I think it's so they're not easily identifiable when they're driving haha

@johndonovan0718 Wow, that is epic looking. What country are you from and where can we see this thing in action?! haha

@prometheus It's had a whole lot of custom suspension work done too, so I'm sure it drives great!
@ChrisMcNamee the fact that they rebuild it every year 'just for fun' is awesome too. Scandinavian people are so crazy motivated when it comes to building cars!!
@HeatherSabin Please don't be discouraged that we didn't publish your car Heather - we still loved it! In fact, you should post your photos up here in the comments! For next time though, we'll need photos in the sizes specified above as the images you sent us were too small. The fact that you built the car yourself is also a fantastic achievement! Keep up the great work :D
@Jake Laird Yes, we get it, you don't like low cars with aggressive wheels. That's cool, but it's not our fault that you don't like certain trends in the industry that are big right now. I'm curious though, what is it exactly that you do like? Because going through our recent posts, we have something that covers almost every automotive subculture out there... surely there's something that tickles your fancy! :P

@Speedhunters_Bryn The first time I watched this, I subconsciously started moving around in my seat (like those motion rides at theme parks where you watch a big screen and your seat moves around) haha

This is such a radical machine! Mattias, you've done an amazing thing rescuing this old car and giving it a new life like this. I still can't get my head around the fact that you drove it from Sweden, or that you can even drive it legally at all… crazy stuff
@Jonathan Klassen We posted a couple of preview photos not that long ago… but that was all!
@bkishaan Lol I didn't know enough Japanese to know how to ask that one :)

@apex_DNA I'm referring to the size as extreme, not the level of craftsmanship. :)
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Reign Of Peace: Offset Kings Japan
@apex_DNA @earmenau What I meant by this statement was that the fenders are subtle in comparison to some of the other bigger / more extreme fenders out there. They might be smaller than some, but I'm not necessarily saying that no less work has gone into crafting them!
@Saikkonen Did you make it back to Sweden in the end? The Chevy looked great - you've done a fantastic job with it! @Dino Dalle Carbonare I'm looking forward to the feature… HURRY UP! :P

@KeithCharvonia Haha I'm glad the mood 'looked' nice… it was ridiculously humid and gross!
@izzy_ortiz Nothing planned but perhaps in the future? That will be up to Mr Carbonare :)
@JohnathanWhye what he said ^ haha :)
@TarmacTerrorist The 'Thing' do you mean? It's radical huh! http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkswagen_Typ_181
@tweetbix it had a koala plush toy on the bonnet too!
@Chris Nuggets He was just cruising round the car park but still… :)
@ShivezDeclanBeckingham This opportunity is location specific, but of course there will be other competitions in future :)

Nice one Alok! Looking forward to announcing the grand winner of our competition tomorrow. Thanks to everyone who entered!

@midgeman I'm genuinely sorry if this competition displeases you. Going back through your commenting history, I can see that you are a very opinionated person with particular tastes, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. I just want to point out that our team really cares about car culture, and we care about our audience and want to include them in what we do. We simply want to encourage people to have fun, to enjoy cars, and to enjoy photography. There are no dark ulterior motives behind this :)

@midgeman I think you've got the wrong impression here. We're not asking anyone to travel long distance to the event. This obviously only applies to people who are in the nearby area, who want to go along to the event, and who would be interested in participating. If you don't count yourself in that category, it's all good!
@Anargya That was from Larry's 'Through My (Wet) Lens' article on FD Atlanta. It's a cool shot huh!
@midgeman Not at all; we were offered the tickets with not much notice and we thought, why let them go to waste when we could give them away and make a fun participation project out of this? This is an opportunity for people to have a good time, spend time with cars and their cameras, get creative and be a part of Speedhunters. Also, we're asking for 2-3 pictures, not two days worth of full event coverage. It seems like a sweet deal to me :)
@Geoff Tyndall These will be general passes. The winners will each be sent a short brief once they've been chosen, but basically we're not necessarily looking for tracks shots - we'll be asking for overall pictures that capture the mood and atmosphere of the event. FD can't give out 20 media passes to non-media personnel.

Nice one Mike! I can't wait to spend more time in Nagoya (and Kyoto and Osaka too) one day. Japan can be so overwhelming when you're there, but as soon as you're gone you miss it so damn much. I'm having withdrawals already...
