• The Colorado River

    After the SEMA Ignited event was over it was time to say goodbye to Vegas and head south. It was time to finally get a taste of another one of my growing passions. Small boats with big engines. For me vintage choppers share many characteristics with vintage drag cars and vintage drag cars share many […]

  • SEMA 2017

    My American adventure had three main components, the ride, the Hot Rod Reunion and then the SEMA event. Everything else was just a bonus. I had mixed emotions about SEMA and all the hype surrounding the event, I enjoyed Death Valley so much that I was sad to leave, but I had booked at the […]

  • Death Valley

    Have you ever got back from somewhere and had people ask you what was the highlight of your time away? Well I did and it was a bloody tough question to answer. But Death Valley and its Furnace Creek Ranch is right up there on the top of my list. Dad and I rolled in […]

El Mirage is the smaller and dustier version of Bonneville, when I first started planning […]

  • Justice Bros Museum

Like drag racing the 1950’s and 60’s was a fast paced progression of competition and development for oval track cars. Racetracks started popping up everywhere, the bleaches […]

  • The NHRA Museum

    When I first started planning this trip I wanted to really immerse myself into the culture and history of Southern California. Like I did in Japan with drifting I wanted to make my motorsport culture experience reflect what was happening in the growth period of the sport that I came to see. I love drag […]

  • The Petersen Museum

    I want to start this post by firstly admitting something, I am not really a fan of museums, at least that was my mentality before the Petersen changed it all. Up until this point museums just seemed like a sterile and somewhat sad resting place for cars that had lost their functionality. I probably wouldn’t […]
