And I added another one to the pile this weekend in San Jose, where I headed to check out the annual Northern California stop on the Wekfest Tour. It wasn’t the scene of a car; it was the image of people – […] The post Car Show Mania: Scenes From Wekfest San Jose appeared first on Speedhunters. Continue Reading… Source:: SpeedHunters…

  • Hakosuka: The Vintage GT-R Dream

    By Teruhisa Inoue Like many collectable classics, the Hakosuka Skyline earned its legendary status on the race track. Circuit racing was huge in Japan in the ’70s, and during its era, the GT-R won more than 50 national touring car races. And it’s that racing heritage coupled with the model’s rarity more than 40 years on that have pushed Hakosuka Skyline prices to the sky; […] The post Hakosuka: The Vintage GT-R Dream appeared first on Speedhunters.

    By Mike Burroughs Deciding upon an engine for my car, Rusty, was far from a simple task. I’d like to suggest that all along, I knew exactly what I wanted, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, several engines came to the shop, and then left on truck beds… An S62, an M106, and I even came close to pulling the trigger on an S85 V10 before I finally settled on what I felt was most true to form: the truly unique, and truly “BMW” S38 inline-six. The S38 has earned a reputation for a handful of upsides and downsides, Continue Reading… Source:: Stance Works…

  • M2 Versus The Eifel

    By Paddy McGrath Whilst entire towns litter the perimeter and infield of arguably the world’s greatest race circuit, the roads which connect them are deserving of similar praise to those flanked by armco nearby. You might not be able to seek similar driver or mechanical limits on the public roads, but the sense of joy can be on par […] The post M2 Versus The Eifel appeared first on Speedhunters.

Well, when I attended the Daytona 500 a few months ago I was just there to hunt speed. And what better place than Daytona?

    By msr Images by to Stephen Kim courtesy of RM Sotheby’s This magnificent 500bhp turbine-engined 1968 Lotus 56 was raced in the 1968 Indy 500 by Graham Hill. It’s heading to auction at RM Sotheby’s’ upcoming Monterey sale. The car, chassis 56-3, was born out of automobile racing’s flirtation with turbine engines during the ’60s. In 1967 STP boss Andy Granatelli sourced a Pratt & Whitney ST-6 turbine engine for a new race car he was building with his brothers. They entered the finished car in the 1967 Indy 500. Parnelli Jones was behind the wheel for the race, and would Continue Reading… Source:: Motorsports Retro…

  • What We’ve Been Watching…

    By TheSpeedhunters First up, it’s a new clip from Car Throttle, starring a humble, homebuilt ’76 Honda Civic… An unlikely base for a hardcore Honda project car build this little SB might be, but it’s obvious that its owner/builder, Georges Champomier, wouldn’t have it any other away. No stone has been left unturned in the Civic’s recreation, and with a D16A9 DOHC […] The post What We’ve Been Watching… appeared first on Speedhunters. Continue Reading… Source:: SpeedHunters…
