1905 was the year the first Geneva Motor Show was hosted, attracting around 13.000 visitors. Since then this annual motor show has managed to grow considerably with visitor numbers passing the 700.000 mark (per edition) and establishing itself as one of the largest and most prestigious car shows in the world.
We like to tell a story every once in a while, especially when we come across something that’s worth giving some extra attention. We get to see hundreds, even thousands of cars when we’re shooting and writing for this blog and we’re excited when we encounter something very interesting. If you’re not a Honda fan, this Del Sol might not impress you, but trust me there’s more to this car than meets the eye. Allow me to take you through Bennie Kerkhof’s project story. Continue reading
Our good friend and videographer Antonis of Anto Moto amazes us again with some great videowork. He put in great effort for the official Wangan Warriors End of Year 2K15 aftermovie. Thanks again to everyone who made this day happen! See you next season! Continue reading
During a lazy weeknight, I was browsing on Facebook wasting some time when I saw a message from a buddy of mine who was looking for a co-driver to join him on a trip to Mimms. It caught my attention, I’ve never been to England before and I was curious to see this event and also to see how the UK scene compares to the Netherlands. I had over 25 days of holiday left from work to spare, so I said to myself “Why the hell not?!”. We cruised down to Duinkerke to get the boat to Dover, it was a crazy moment when coming to the French border with the current police and military presence. They stood there with automatic guns after all the drama which has unfortunately unfolded during the past few weeks. Continue reading
As you might know, Wangan Warriors is more than just the blog and a healthy FB page. It’s also a group of friends who like to get together every now and then to have a laugh, BBQ or take weekend trips to the famous Nürburgring. These weekends are all about the above and of course to drive a few laps ourselves and/or to watch what and who is trying to conquer the Ring. It was during one of these trips when I spotted a a little red ringtool at Brunchen and seeing as I’m always on the look out for stuff to shoot and cars to feature, I thought this Civic would make a nice spotlight feature for our humble blog!

This S2000 might be the most interesting car that I saw at Gatebil for various reasons. Others might beg to differ, but this is a personal thing. I used to be a convertible driver and I’ve always had a weak spot for the Honda S2000 over the years. Whenever I see a cool S2K project I repeatedly fall in love over and over again and wish that one day I will drive one myself. However I’m always entertained when I see another owner enjoying his or her project and therefore I’d like to tell you a little story about Dennis Häggblom, the proud owner and builder of this particular Honda.

Summer vibes, long days and warm nights. What’s better than going for a ride with your mates?
Chech out our little aftermovie of an impromptu mini-meet.
We were a little sad to cancel our evening meet at the end of last month. We still wanted to have a nice evening to hang out because a lot of our regular meet visitors were planning to come over again. We decided to set up a little evening with some locals and clubfriends and had an amazing night. Continue reading
We as human beings all have our own preference – some like it hot, others like it cold. Some like bacon, others are vegetarian. Some like it stanced, others like it functional. Me? I like my bacon hot, but when it comes to cars I really like most of the sub-cultures within the automotive community, something that reflects on the DMPD events as well as you can see here and here, so allow me to show you some of DMPD finest finest!

It’s time for the general Honda Civic owner to pay attention here for a few minutes. Keep in mind that I can’t guarantee that there won’t be any form of jealousy generated by looking at this EK4 because I’m about to showcase a beauty. We already knew that the British scene has some absolute showstoppers to offer and I can only point out that I’m happy that so many of them decide to cross the puddle to visit our events. I’ve been following this EK since we covered Hondafest earlier this year and contacted the owner so that we could do a photoshoot the next time we meet. Continue reading
