The tale of two Silvias

2silvias

I always bang on about the elements that make a good build thread, and having nice photos is usually top of the list. But another key element to a great thread is using it as a platform to tell a story, as a reader you want to get lost in the journey and feel like […]

LS3 S13

LS3-S13

What happens when you work for a major car magazine and share a fully equipped communal garage with your sister titles? You build a badass car, that’s what. Fresh black paint, OEM aero, all the good bits underneath, and an LS3 V8 swap to supply the power makes for one very tasteful and effortlessly powerful […]

Okay, the Speedhunters posts are done and dusted for another year, hopefully I’ve picked up some new readers with the increased exposure so let’s get back to business and feature some builds. Romas emailed me his Trueno build only a couple of days ago, hailing all the way from Lithuania. The AE86 was already modified […]

Sal from Powerzamcam contacted me about featuring his 1JZ S13 drift car, to which I happily obliged. I think its fantastic when people contact me to feature cars, as it makes my job easier, plus it means I can feature builds that I might not have otherwise found. So why do so many people put […]

Sillbeer S13 Silvia

One word that gets thrown around way too much these days on the internet when describing cars is “clean”. Someone bolts a set of rims on their car, lowers it, and apparently its “clean”. Well the following car is the true definition of clean, no fan-boy-isms here. Pick any surface on this car and chances […]

P7290720

Another DIY masterpiece, Nigel has hand fabricated his S13 Silvia in such detail that puts most “show cars” to shame. Built to slide, this is a car that is universally admired in the S-Chassis scene. Created in an understated Japanese street-drift style, it works to a simple formula that is easy to replicate, yet so […]
