Baby blue. The Emperador Motorismo S13

If you’ve read my first blog about the Valtonen Motorsport RX­7 a couple weeks ago you probably read that I hoped that that blog wasn’t my last for Wangan Warriors. Luckily for me, here I am with number two! This time I got invited to the WNGN 2K16 event held at an old military terrain near Venray. The forecast for the day was really bad but we did have some good moments to take photos. Continue reading

Feature: Portrait of a Warrior

They’ve never lost contact and about six years ago they got attracted to Japanese car culture and both bought a Nissan 200sx. After some time Kay decided to sell the Silvia and bought an EK3 Vtec-e Civic. At that moment they had the idea to start a little club together called Wangan Warriors. Back then it was nothing more than a sticker on both their windshields but that is where it all started. There are the roots of Wangan Warriors.

Spotlight: Shooting beauty

Car aficionados can be found everywhere. Even if you live in the smallest village, the guy you see once a month who lives at the end of your street might be building something serious. Paul and I travelled down to the very south of our little country to meet Joep, a modest guy who lives in a picturesque and serene village close to where The Netherlands meet Germany and Belgium.

Every now and then though, the still scenery is abruptly awoken; Joep decided to let his car out. Continue reading
