There are most certainly a few of us that have been around the block for a few years, and on the cover of NZPC 295, Michael Kuoy is still packin’ a Japanese performance car: a 400kW wide-body Mitsubishi menace, dripping in Chargespeed and custom paint. It has been 20 years since his last cover car, but he’s still ankle-deep in the car scene here in New Zealand — some things just never change! 10 years on and Will Dickinson’s air bagged Toyota Hilux ute build is now complete and has more detail than we know what to do with, as well as a 1UZ-FE V8 engine conversion. Shaun Constable says sayonara to Japan in the latest Big Ambitions segment and Amy Davidson hangs out with Mad Mike and the crew at the Rotary Summer Drags. The Ed’ attempts to make something from cardboard for his racecar, thrashes Torque Performance Development’s 300kW Honda Civic FK8 Type R and checks in on their K-series Honda Fit project. International contributor Martin Hansson meets up with Wiborg Engineering to crawl all over their 1000hp Mitsubishi Evo-looking time attack monster and Aaron Mai tells us tales of the now closed Ebisu circuit — in loving memory. We’ve got a South Island Weekend Warrior, a 335kW BMW station wagon cruiser and one slick, 260kW S14 slider in Street Legal. You know the drill, head to the gassy, grab a pie, and the latest NZ Performance Car magazine — you will not be disappointed!
