@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. :)

@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.

@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.

@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 :)

Also, it's not sad that Pedey & I are sharing a similar career path, it's awesome! :)

@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

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! :)

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! :)

@SkanderFekir Thanks for your feedback. Ah yes, that feature certainly caused a lot of controversy. In terms of pageviews though, it was actually really successful. That was quite a few months ago now though and we've really been trying to up our game with the level of cars we've been featuring recently - I think last month's selection really proves that our team are doing a great job!

Sorry @SkanderFekir, but did you by any chance read this story? This is a completely purpose-built 1,120hp drag car built with solely function in mind. In fact, almost all of the cars we featured last month were functional cars that were built to be driven. http://www.speedhunters.com/2014/10/cars-september/


I guess what I'm trying to say here is, don't let your dislike of one small aspect of car culture let you turn a blind eye to all the other incredible things happening in the international automotive scene right now. Speedhunters covers a huge variety of automotive subcultures and if you don't like a particular trend or style, why not check out some of our other more performance-orientated features? Thank-you.

@newshamg If I was in a position to spend like this, I'd totally modify a super car in this fashion. Sure, these cars can all look the same in photos but the presence they have in real life is something very special. It's aggressive, it's rebelling against the norm, and it stirs an emotional reaction in everyone…
