FEATURE – RISING FROM THE ASHES FEATURE – RISING FROM THE ASHES

Before I set these two cars up for the shoot, I was just pondering with a friend on how people say these cars are so hard to find and so rare and yet, I have come in contact with so many of these rare beauties. Even a couple of my friends are getting into restoration of S30Z’s. From hidden personal restorations to internationally acclaimed zetto artisans, Star Road, I have been witness to a great variety of Fairlady’s and have found a deep and profound sense of appreciation for all of them, regardless of what state or style they...

Every day at 7Tune, we get dozens of messages with attachments of the rides people have or are building.

Good friend and fellow JDM fanatic, Ben Schaffer, owner of Bulletproof Automotive, set out to do something very special with an FR-S. But the aim wasn’t to just slap a Rocket Bunny kit on it, a nice set of wheels and maybe some other simple upgrades and call it a day. Not even close…  Read More →

MOTORSPORT – SUPER GT 2014 ROUND 1 AT OKAYAMA MOTORSPORT – SUPER GT 2014 ROUND 1 AT OKAYAMA

Catching the first flight out of Tokyo’s Haneda airport was always going to be a tough ask considering how little sleep I usually get, but making my way down to Okayama International circuit in western Honshu to cover the season opener for Super GT 2014 more than got me motivated. 2014 is an important and exciting year for the series as it ushers in a potentially great new slew of changes that can realistically spur this series to greater heights now and in the future years to come…  Read More →

Retro Havoc 2014 was an event that really took a lot of people by surprise, including me.

Can you imagine a world without the GT-R? Or perhaps a world without an STi Impreza? No, neither can I… but Mitsubishi suits and corporate management got the bright idea that the world didn’t need or want a Lancer Evolution either and so, I am sad to say that, with immediate effect, we all have to sit and watch as a beloved moniker goes from being a “King of the rally stages” to a “Queen of the kitchen”… The Lan-Evo is dead and it’s official…
