Event : GTR Sunday

Its been over a year since I made the temporary move to Australia and in that time I got to know Steve, owner of a gorgeous R34 GTR and owner of Facebook page GTR Life. Since the R34 Gtr is an extremely rare car in Singapore, I thought it might be a good idea to show case one of the most popular cars in Australia to the Singaporeans who rarely get to see a single R34 GTR. So I sacrificed my Sunday hanging out with EIGHT R34 Gtrs just so I could grab some photos for you guys.

Its a tough job, but somebody has to do it.

Picture a reasonably cloudy Sunday, the temperatures at a high of 22degrees and just spending the time with fellow car lovers. I knew it was going to be a fun day when I spotted a number of these cars on the road towards the meet location.

Weekends, the time most Singaporeans come out to party and fully embrace the vibrant nightlife Singapore has to offer. Alcohol, good music, hot girls in sexy dresses, a great recipe for a good night out. For a bunch of guys and girls, the recipe for a great night out involves a different kind of liquid and music. Burning some fuel, the sound of VTEC screams and hot cars in sexy rims and body kits.1D3_3793 1D3_3792 Continue reading

2014 Tokyo Auto Salon : Essence (Part 1)

Text by : Randy F, Photos by : Randy F

Time flies. It has been over a month since the conclusion of the 2014 Tokyo Auto Salon. Owing to a mad work schedule, thrilling personal hobby and editing of a massive amount of photographs from this recent trip to Japan, this article came a wee bit later than expected. Nonetheless, I hope it still tickles your fancy!

After a short haul flight from Singapore, my plane touched down at Narita Airport. On a side note if any you decide to travel there, do book a flight that lands directly at Haneda Airport. It is unquestionably closer to the city center and you would not have to deal with the sheer horror of missing a connecting flight from Narita to Haneda! Fortunately for me, I flew in an entire day before the event opening. After sorting out my transit mishap, I still made it to the Tokyo Auto Salon Media Day in good time, attended the annual RWB New Year meet up at Roppongi Hills, and even went around to a handful of Japanese tuners.

For the first portion of this post, I have decided to showcase what the Japanese tuners have brought to the show and what may be fast catching on as the trends of 2014.
