Auckland, New Zealand
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! :)
@Frozenstar Love the wing. Does that make me gay? I'm so confused!

@jameskovolenus We'll be shooting that Volvo wagon soon for a full feature once it's finished. It's built by the owner of this car: http://www.speedhunters.com/2013/06/a-labour-ovlov-the-turbo-bmw-powered-volvo/

@JDubs5674 Easier said than done! Haha
@ae70 Quite a few people rock BMW V8s here - they're just an easier conversion as the parts are more accessible and much cheaper. Still plenty of LS-powered cars in this part of the world though... just none of these ones!

@MilesHayler Something in here for everyone :)
@Gianluca FairladyZ They look good huh! I can't imagine that many people have them here in Scandinavia. Love the black on black look too.
So awesome Keith! And so awesome finally seeing #MaximumAttack in action!

@Smiggins Why don't you build one then? :)
What a lovely video Larry. Long live Ole Orange Bang!

@Ian G We actually phased the photography programme out about a year ago now. It was great fun (and naturally we had a few complaints when it ended!) but our issue with it was that it was becoming a bit elitist in the way that only people with photography skills could participate. We wanted the programme to be more about the Speedhunting community as a whole, and since then it has evolved into these Readers' Rides stories - very much like our old 'Feature This' stories, but with a lot more detail. Thanks for your feedback though - we can see there are definitely quite a few people still interested in having somewhere to submit automotive photography and this is something we are going to address this year. :)

Personally loving this, and great photos Louis! Also, congrats Pat - a picture we posted of your car on @thespeedhunters Instagram account is now (by a long way) our 'most liked' post. :)

@Mfabs @biohazardnico @cox I'll try and track down an image for you! Kicking myself, as I did take one of the R32's dash but it got deleted or lost somehow - really bizarre! I did manage to get an image of the inside of the R34 from the owner though :)

Nice one, Larry!

@MariusEngenSkinnes Hey Marius! I wrote this further below in the comments, but unfortunately I somehow managed to misplace the interior pictures I took. I've been talking to some of the owners though and they're going to share some with us soon :)
@biohazardnico I would love to show you pictures, but unfortunately I somehow came home from this trip without the memory card that had them on it. Super fail, I know! I'll see if I can find some other images though :)
@Chris 'Haffy' Hafner There's a link to the video in the last paragraph!

@yentran422 Personalised plates with these kind of abbreviated words are such a huge tradition in NZ car culture. Some of them are so stereotypical it gives me the giggles sometimes. We're only allowed 6 letters so people get really 'creative' with them…

@Spaghetti We had a chat to the owner at the show and asked him 'Why?' His response was 'Why not?' Haha. Seemed like a nice dude.

@Pete the perfect pilot It was a shame we couldn't feature more rotary content in the theme, but we have some seriously awesome rotary goodness coming up very soon in our V 4 & Rotary Nationals coverage. Stay tuned :)

@EhruMejil We didn't get that many rotary submissions, but if you're a rotary fan then you're in for a treat with our upcoming coverage of the 4 & Rotary Nationals in New Zealand. Stay tuned!

@EvolveWRC Maybe it just felt like that because I'd got used to driving cheap rental cars everywhere :)
@Revtil9k Yeah, it made me realise how terrifying Pikes Peak would be without any guard rail/barriers near the top… I hate heights!
@Ice Age It's a very different landscape to what I'm used to in New Zealand, that's for sure!
@RemiM That's some awesome feedback, thank-you!
@MarekAz Haha, no, not exactly. This text is really a condensed version of what took place over half a day :)
That P1800 though… damn!

Thanks @LukeEVOVIII! @TROLLS ROYCE Correct, Dino has reviewed the Nismo GT-R here: http://www.speedhunters.com/2013/12/nismo-gt-r/
This is more of a travel story as opposed to a car review, hence why I've tried to focus more on the incredible location :)
@zz Hmm I'm not quite sure what you mean. If you mean mobile data, we all just have tremendous phone bills! If you mean GPS navigation, generally I just always make sure I have a car with built-in GPS, but I know that some of the guys have their own Nav system they take with them when travelling.
