Growing up, Rolando Alvarado was always a fan of the air-cooled Volkswagen scene and it quickly became a personal goal of his to acquire a 1965 Type II Volkswagen Bus.

Regarded as one of the most sought-after model Buses in the world, the Type II Volkswagen Bus was a forerunner of the modern cargo and passenger vans.

The Type II Bus is also known as the Splittie due to the front split –windows.  [Read more...]

Porsche 911 Turbo Hillclimb Monster

Boost Bash, Porsche, 911, 993

Duck Fuson is the owner of this Porsche 911 turbo with huge widebody overfenders and an aggressive, functional GT wing. Even thought it looks like a newer chassis, this 911 is actually a 1974 model year car!

Aside from the functionally aerodynamic front bumper, multicolored front air splitter, and huge fiberglass flares from Getty Design, Duck swapped out his classic Porsche bodywork for a newer style hood, fenders, and projector headlights from a Porsche 993. The headlights have also been covered with yellow 3M film, which give the car more of a LeMans look.

When I asked Duck about the blue and yellow accents on his front lip, mirror, and rear wing uprights, he explained that he went to one of the first F1 races at Indianapolis, and they had a Porsche Supercup race before the actual F1 race. He spotted a 911 with that blue and yellow color scheme, and he painted his car with the same colors to pay homage to that Porsche Supercup car.

Lifting the trunk lid and enormous aluminum GT wing reveals more personality from logos hidden underneath. Sitting above the 3.6L engine is a huge intercooler that Duck fabricated himself, with a 50mm Tial blow off valve affixed to the left side. The engine internals feature custom 9.5:1 JE Pistons mated to Porsche forged rods with ARP rod bolts. The engine runs stock cams, but with the Haltech F9A fuel injection, the 2300lb car makes just over 500hp on 1.1 bar of boost. [Read more...]

This isn’t a RHD converted 240SX. This is a real S13 Silvia. The interior looks like most drift cars – which is not to disparage the car in any way. It’s very simple – this car is constructed with an emphasis on competition within a motorsport and, as you know, all motorsports involve speed.

Kyle Pollard, the owner of this Silvia, wanted to keep this S13 true to the roots. He kept the SR20DET and built it to accommodate the high level of competition in Formula D. He ended up using a Tomei 2.2 Stroker kit, Ikeya Formula Throttle Bodies, HKS 264 cams, Garrett GTX3076R Turbocharger, DOC Race exhaust manifold, and Motec standalone to name a few parts. Portland Speed Industries tuned the car to make 560whp and 490 lb/ft of torque. [Read more...]
