Drive In

Rotary Spirit

The influence of modified Japanese sports cars found a new high watermark in the car enthusiast community in the 1990s and early 2000s, especially with the younger subset looking for something other than their parents’ favorite European and American fare. A lot of kids were affected by the so-called Gran Turismo era, but very few of them can say they grew up to own one of the halo cars of the era, Mazda’s ultimate send-off to the iconic RX-7: the Spirit R.

Strange Cars In A Strange Land In A Strange Time

The cars, American Land Yachts. The land, Jolly Ol’ England. And the time, 1973. Six minutes of a very stylish English gentleman expressing disdain for the use of Detroit Iron to navigate their tiny roads.


1963 TVR Grantua: Eye Candy

Gregorie Desmons has always had a sensitivity to the aesthetic elements of life, and so for him the first impulses to own classic sports cars came from the question of form rather than horsepower. Though many will argue that art following its purest definition shouldn’t be concerned with anything practical like transportation, we all know the truth to be otherwise…

One Man Club

Squeeze into Sergiu Topala’s Rover Mini Cooper for a ride around Moldova. Though produced in 1994, his little British box roundly recalls the styling and engineering that made the name so famous in the 1960s, and in keeping with the more modern model year, this Mini is subjected to long road trips and anything else that one might do in a normal car, albeit one with no air-conditioning or power steering.

Whiz Kids

Driving fun cars with your friends is, by no stretch of definition, time well spent. Being able to do so while you’re in high school and can say that your first car wasn’t a typical five-speed automatic Corolla only makes it better, but owning half-century-old baby Brits like Daniel Harrison’s 1958 MGA and Daniel Hornstrand’s 1962 Austin Mini Cooper isn’t simple.


NC Miata on the Nürburgring

Sit back, relax, and watch a Koenigsegg test driver run a 7:37 lap of the Nordschleife in his Miata NC. It is 2007 2.0 NC that has been modified for racing and you can read the list of modifications on the YouTube page. Watch the the vertical bar gauges on the right and see how often he is on full gas and rarely touches the brakes.


Mazda MX-5 RF in 787B Racing Livery

Watching a 2018 Mazda Miata RF be driven by a skilled lunatic is always fun, but seeing one whip around in the green and orange quilting livery of Mazda’s famous Le Mans winning rotary-powered 787B is extra excellent.
