Saw this very intense Nissan GTR at the Cruise Night in Hopewell, NJ last Friday. It certainly turned heads when it rolled up, and to my knowledge it belongs to Interstate Motorsports, a new exotic car dealer in the area. I’m not sure exactly what has been done to this GTR modification wise, but it definitely doesn’t seem stock. One thing I must point out though, is the Ferrari badge on the back… it nearly ruined the car for me because it is entirely tasteless. The sweet color and wheels saved this GTR, but there is really no excuse for being fake, especially at this level. That said, it was comical hearing people walk by and say “nice Ferrari” while I was taking these photos. Enjoy.
Every weekend Woodward Ave was filled with awesome cars of all sorts. Most of my attention was on the muscle cars and exotics of course, but every now and then some of the tuners caught my eye. The modified car scene is lots of fun to participate in, but when it comes to taking pictures one can only photograph so many of the same type of car. Specific builds are interesting to see, but to the camera its a bit dull compared to the plethora of much more unique car in the area at the time. Here are a few of the tuners that I decided to capture. Enjoy.
I have seen this awesome looking Porsche 928 around the area numerous times, but I finally got some quality photo time with it a few months ago during the cruise night in Hopewell, NJ. I am not sure exactly what has been done to the car mods wise, but it sure sounds good. It looks like it may be a Strosek bodykit, but I’m not certain. A 928 GTS is pretty darn quick to begin with, so I’m sure this car moves quite well. Enjoy.
I have yet to meet an owner of a Mazdaspeed3 (MS3) who didn’t legitimately love their car. Something about the car seems to inspire people, they always have that “I know something you don’t” smirk on their face. Mazdas have always had a good sporting dynamic to them, but the enthusiasm that owners seem to have about this car goes beyond that. I have always known about the MS3, but somehow, while I’ve been out driving all sorts of fun cars over the years, it has eluded me. So recently, I decided it was time I take one out for a spin to see what these owners are so smug about. Read the rest of this entry »
We we in attendance for the 6th Annual Tristatetuners Spring Meet in Pennsylvania. Here are the highlights.
We were in attendance for Street Wars 8. The show was a lot smaller than last year due to organizational issues, but there were still plenty of quality cars to see. Photos are by both myself and Dan Valanzola. Enjoy the gallery. Read the rest of this entry »
I saw this very cool Jeep on George Street before leaving for Spring Break on Friday.

In BBC Top Gear Jeremy Clarkson was amazed at what the Fiat 500 Abarth felt like with 160hp. Well Italian tuner Romeo Ferraris thought that that was still a bit weak, so they upped the ante to 300hp… in that same car the size of a shoe. All of that turbocharged power sent to the front wheel will surely make this thing quite a handful to drive, and it is outfitted as such. The interior looks to be quite racy but somehow they decided a touch of luxury alcantara would be necessary as well. Romeo Ferraris (yes, a name bordering on infringing the rights of two Italian automakers) seems to be a force to be reckoned with. If they are crazy enough to make a Fiat 500 like this, then I can only imagine what they would do with other cars. Be sure to keep an eye on them. More pics below. Read the rest of this entry »
The G35 pretty much saved the Infiniti brand when it came out. It offered an extremely solid package for a very good price offering better performance than its German competition for less money. The G35 shared its platform with the Nissan 350Z, making the sedan a four door sports car and the coupe a more comfortable Z. It was a rock solid lineup and they sold like hotcakes to executives and enthusiasts alike. Now they are among the best used cars you can buy if you’re looking for something that’s got everything.

At auto shows and other car events there is always a lot of separate sights to be seen on the street. Many people like to drive their cool cars to such events. Today was day 1 of the New Hope Auto Show in PA and here’s what I saw on the road. Read the rest of this entry »

That’s right, this is the exact Bentley GT that can be seen in the Kush video. I was informed of this by the owner of the shop, after he had come out to question if I was casing the place, and found out I was not. The Bentley has a host of appearance modifications, but other wise is mechanically stock. Not what I would do to my own Bentley (if I had one), but a cool car nonetheless.
