This proud TWCompetiton member purchased his VW GT1 back in 2002, after having finished his previous project, an old school Civic EF9 His rationale behind picking the GT1 was simply I love VW, which is an odd statement to hear coming from a passionate...

Although many of today's tuners may not recognize the name Mike Mike P. Palijan, trust us, this dude and his unassuming Civic hatchback were official back in the day Palijan was considered the man to beat behind the wheel of the ETD Racing Honda Civic, as his efforts earned respect for all modified imports in the domestically dominated drag scene at the time. His reputation as being fast on and off the track also made Palijan the subject of an infamous A amp E special documentary on illegal...

One look at Sandra Gandara's work on this 2000 Volkswagen Jetta and it's clear it was a standout example of a VW from years past.

Spyder rite

Keith Imoto is no newbie to the sport compact game. This topless terror looks like it just stepped off the battlefield of a JGTC race, as his Toyota MR-S sports a super aggressive, extra-wide TRD Monocraft GT-300 aero kit. The 1ZZ-FE motor churns out a peppy 138hp in stock form, but thanks to a catalog of A'PEXi parts and forced induction, the little roadster now packs over 250 ponies. Keith Imoto and his A'PEXi cohorts certainly created one of the hottest mid-ship roadsters to ever appear in...

Motion Sickness

Hailing from the frigid north in Fargo, NO, proud S2K-owner Tony Swartz has been building custom cars for quite some time. Although his previous cars were predominately domestic, he slowly stockpiled parts for this Honda build with a set goal in mind. Swartz began ordering mods from around the country because as he says, It sure isn't easy finding import parts in North Dakota. So after two years spent collecting gear, he started wrenching and tuning to create the hottest Honda we'd seen in a...
