Weld Techniques Factory have come a long way from their big 4 door Toyota sedans that competed in Japanese D1 Grand Prix series and their latest creation has been making rounds on the internet. A Scion FR-S with an all metal wide body made by the guys at Hoshino Racing with the vision from Atsushi Ito who is the founder of Weld.
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.
We are back with the second part of the Tokyo Auto Salon 2014 since the long awaited Part 1. The other brand that had a booth that was swapped with audience is none other than Trust with their R35X which grabbed best of show for 2014.
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.Continue reading →
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.
We haven’t posted many feature cars recently and its something that we feel quite sheepish about. In the middle of our day jobs, our after-work lives, our aim to shift our website to a better host with a more updated and user friendly layout and our constant search for opportunities to host events for the Singapore car community, we haven’t been taking the time out of our personal lives to search and organize photo shoots for new feature cars.
Our Facebook page however has been absolutely amazing and we can’t express how much we appreciate the love everyone that has liked our page has shown, constantly commenting and sharing the photos we post. We knew the Facebook page was going to hit a milestone of 500,000 likes soon and we wanted to at least have a feature on the website for your viewing pleasure. So we spent 6 hours of our Saturday night driving around searching for locations, getting shouted at by a Caucasian male who thought our cars were too loud while we were adjusting the positions and wetting our pants when we had to drive through a road block during a change of location.
The feature Evo in this post is owned by one of the most supportive friends that has been supporting TheRightWrong from the very beginning. His car was actually one of the first few cars we featured on the site but has recently undergone a complete make over. Unfortunately, he has made the difficult decision to put the car up for sale and we could not let the car get sold before giving it a final photo shoot.
The other Civic you see is owned by our very talented photographer, Neo. His civic which is heavily inspired by the many race civics from around the world sports a custom widebody and custom front bumper. You’ll be seeing more of this car sometime in the near future.
With the new Altis, Toyota also recently unveiled a concept car that looks like it learnt a little from the LFA. An incredible looking car and something I would definitely want to own if they don’t mess it up as Subaru did with the new WRX.
