GALLERY> Gripwerks & S2Ki Forums BBQ Meet

There are times in life when one should expand one's horizons, embrace diversity and appreciate things that are personally "outside the norm." These Zen-like thoughts came to me while driving home from work one afternoon and I eventually came to the temporary conclusion that I COULD enjoy other vehicle makes and models and let my devoted passion for RX7s rest a little. I did stress that this was a temporary conclusion, didn't I?

The result of my moment of enlightenment? A new appreciation for Honda's road grappler - the Honda S2000. Which came just in time since a good buddy of mine, Scott Soonthonum, informed me that he was the proud owner of the CR edition S2K during my birthday celebration shortly thereafter. Funny how these things work out. We exchanged info with the intention of keeping in touch so that we could connect sometime in the near future.

In just a matter of days, I received a text from Scott inviting the MotorMavens crew to attend the Gripwerks & S2kI Forums' 1st Annual BBQ Meet. Let's take a look at what photographer Horacio Flores captured as I delve into the welcoming unknown.   Read more...

COVERAGE> San Francisco Auto Show 2009

I got a call from the Extreme Autofest folks asking me if I want to show one of my cars again at the annual San Francisco International Auto Show at the Moscone Center this year. The only problem was that my FD3S RX7 was still unavailable because we were still working on getting it back from the Brahma Light Drift Track Opening in the Dominican Republic.

Since the FD wasn't back in San Francisco yet, I figured it would be a good chance to debut my RHD S14 and display it at this week-long show so I could show some love to my sponsors.   Read more...

WEBMINING> Rogansan's Rootbeer RPS13

Real quick before you get your Thanksgiving Holiday started... I just wanted to post up these pics of Logan "Rogansan" Yoshida's car - this metallic brown RPS13 240SX/180SX. I think that metallic brown is such an awesome color... maybe it's because my very first car was also metallic brown with white wheels, but I think the color would look good on an AE86 coupe, on a Civic, on a GS400, and it definitely looks good on this RPS13.

Above is an old photo of Logan's car... full aero, kouki tails, a roof wing, an understated lip wing and some authentic Nismo wheels in white?! Come on. Recipe for success.   Read more...
