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! :)
@TROLLS ROYCE Thank-you!

@kamenkachev It's just personal preference. Also, the owner drives it as a daily and gets it sideways. It's not meant to be perfect, it's just a car for having a bit of fun in. Gets my approval :)

@Mike Not a full feature, just a spotlight for this car. It's not that often we get the opportunity to show the 280ZX some love!
Not jealous of you at all Mike... not at all! That Hakosuka was possibly my favourite car from my last trip, so gorgeous.

@gtuned We finished the photography back in March. #IATS is now extended not just to those with exceptional photography skills; instead we've now opened its doors to the whole community. The whole reason this changed is because making IATS about photography made it only exciting for a narrow selection of people to participate. Now each month, it's about something different, but it always still relates to cars of course. :)

@maxvr6 Hmm… if it's done by the 18th, but this would be at the very latest… sorry!

@Jjaeger240 Just give it your best shot. You could always ask a more photography-savvy friend to take a few photos for you too - you've got a week! :)

@HeatherSabin That's awesome! And who's to say we wouldn't feature your car? If the build is of a high quality, if it's interesting and unique - these are the qualities we're looking for. :)

@DylaniusDecimusMeridius That's so awesome :)
@k1llsh0rty I'm extremely glad to hear you agree with the general theme of the story. In regards to the selection of images used, I only had a short amount of time to put together a collection of high quality photos to support this story, and this is what I managed to put together. Due to the nature of the subject, I knew the fact that the girls were all nice looking would cause this sort of reaction, but I didn't have any other images to use. Besides, all of the girls in the images are either friends or mutual friends… none of them are models. They are all normal, nice women, all interested in cars, and most importantly I know they all have nice personalities which is what I judge people on anyway.
@Samuel Mayhan These aren't available in high res. Plenty of great wallpapers of cars available in our other stories though.
@OfficialWCP None of these women are models. They're all friends or friends of people I know. All normal, nice people who love cars.
@rpoole217 Aw that's such a sweet story, thank-you for sharing!
@Sir Rob Of course - her name has come up many times in the comments! She was/still is super bad ass.
@hurrderp I'm pleased this story has provoked such a detailed response from you. But really, what I'm suggesting here is that as car enthusiasts, shouldn't we be wanting to ensure that there's a positive and encouraging environment for all people to learn about the hobby that we all love and enjoy so much - if they so choose to take an interest in it? I don't think that's silly.
@Murph You know that is my 280z aye? :P thank-you!
@Jonnybimmer Of course, Michèle Mouton is another great example. I certainly could have used more than three examples of inspirational women in this :)

@ATLshine Haha, maybe not take over… but definitely take part in! :)
@JasmynCochrane That's awesome! Keep it up :)
@niZmO_Man Michèle Mouton is a legend!
@shovanisticass So I think… you are agreeing with what I'm saying then, right? It doesn't matter what sex you are. And women can do whatever they want. Exactly what I'm trying to get at :)
@SimonJennings Emma Gilmour is amazing!
@this.guy.said Michèle Mouton should have been mentioned! She is actually my #1 :)
@SadReally Haha. You're right. There are far too many photos of me wearing bathing suits on my Instagram. I better sort that out…
Also, it's not sad that Pedey & I are sharing a similar career path, it's awesome! :)
@AirLift_Brian This is so cool!
@guber959 Thanks for your feedback. We actually have some really cool technical stories coming up next month, which from the sounds of things you'll really enjoy. Don't give up just yet :)
@Anthraxxx Too cute!!
@Angelo Well… she's probably got bigger balls than you, that's true!
@Simon Just because they're not in here doesn't mean I don't think they're incredibly rad! I just had a short amount of time to gather photos for this story :)
@JDMDONG best ever username
@JennaVanHezewijk I got to do my first two laps a couple of months ago and it was crazy! Only in a Rent 4 Ring Swift, but holy shit it was cool! I'm determined to moved to Europe next year and build a track car, so maybe we can do some laps together. :D
@JennaVanHezewijk Love this input! So jealous of your time at the Ring too… I would LOVE to drive an MX-5 there… I think that has just become my new life goal :)
@TROLLS ROYCE Re. Maria de Villota, most definitely! Could have made that list much longer. Re. the other stuff, I'm so glad to hear my writing has that effect on you! And Elizabeth has left the team, sorry!
@The One Otaku When I was 17 I hated cars and drove a Volkswagen new beetle - the ones with the vase with the Gerbera flower in it… So yeah, things can really change over time! Trust me :D
@KillerRaccoon Oh good spotting, I'll change that! Cheers
@VictorVanderpooten Yes, I could go on for ages about other female drivers. Pat Moss was another!
Hi @dangina, I'd be lying if I said I didn't see this comment coming. When I put out the word on my Facebook page about wanting a collection of photos for this, I received over 200 images which was an overwhelming response! It was actually incredibly difficult to select which images to use, but I narrowed it down to those which included both quality photography and a variety of different women, all who I know are genuinely interested in cars. That's all there really is to it - please don't think anything more of it! :)
@fifteen52_coneklr That is too cute :)
@veedub20v But… the world's a far more interesting place when people do weird stuff, right? Haha :)

@Lol sh suks Harsh words, but we appreciate the honest feedback. You're forgetting that one man's trash is another man's treasure though! Sid has his own personal style and we think it's cool that he took the time to rescue this and turn it into a daily driver. It's got charm and it puts smiles on people's faces.

@JDMjunkies_ch I have to point out here that in the last 31 days we have published 67 stories, and only two of them have been Liberty Walk-related. We've also posted a couple of updates on our KM4SH kits. So 4/67 stories… that really doesn't seem like a lot to me? Make sure to check out some of our other recent features, there's plenty of variety! :)
