ZN6


In the last five years, Subaru, and certainly Toyota have done lots with the FT86 platform.  We’ve seen minor iterations from the production car, and a few interesting special edition models.  On the motorsports front, both STI and Gazoo have put out some great looking and functional competition machines.  In terms of concept cars, we’ve seen convertibles, and sedans, and […]

Newest Dream Car?


2
One of my quiet and distant auto senpai once told me that modding cars was a game for children.   Being a child at the time, I took this as old man talk.  His logic was the following… How can the engineering resources of even the greatest tuning company possibly compete with those of a multi-billion dollar company like Porsche?

Car Life Flavour Turned Vanilla

It’s spring, and my fourth season with the FR-S begins… The fact that I’m still driving the car seems amazing in itself.  When I bought the car I planned on keeping it forever, but I sure as hell didn’t plan on keeping it stock.

A Wheel Project?



I’ve wondered a few times about putting fifteen on the FR-S. Not only do I think they look make the car look better (or at least different) but 15″ winter rubber comes in some pretty great sizes and is really really cheap. However, now almost February, it feels like winter is about over, and I’ve lost all interest in using the FRS on […]

Easing Winters Pains


2
Dead of winter.   The ZN6… which I had planned to drive through the snow and salty slush, sits under cover of tin.  In part, that is because it is still something that, apart from some easily countable aesthetic blemished, is perfect.  It is also however… really not that good in challenging road conditions. I don’t think that really has […]
