Every year and without fail, there’s one issue of Super Street that fills itself up with awesome feature cars almost effortlessly—our annual Nissan special! For whatever reason, there are a lot of you diehard Nissan owners out there, and as you flip through the pages of this month’s issue, you’ll know exactly what I mean. The halo cover cars are a trio of R34 Skyline GT-RS I discovered in Vancouver, BC. Thanks to Canada’s 15-year rule (as opposed to our 25-year rule), R34s are 100 percent legal to import and register north of our borders. And while we think we’ve seen enough modified Skylines over the years, they’re still like a forbidden fruit and we can’t get enough of them. Big thanks to Charles Wong for walking us around his collection of GT-RS, as well as to Josh Chow and Jason Chen of Drive Marketing Group for coordinating the photo shoot. Besides Godzilla, S-chassis builds still reign supreme in the Nissan world. We have three in this issue—two from Japan and one from Arizona—all three are executed to a tee. Lastly, there’s a pair of Datsuns that’ll satisfy your old-school fetish. In particular, Michelle Forsberg’s 510 is a wagon built for the ages, not to mention she had quite the helping hand from her husband, who you should all be familiar with… I find it interesting that every feature in this mag is at least ’01 or older. Just goes to show how timeless and awesome these Nissans continue to be!
ROAD TRIP ANYONE?
Whether it’s one of the many rallies I’ve finished such as Gumball 3000, goldrush Rally, or Targa Trophy, to smaller cruises to events like Wekfest, there’s something about rolling out on an adventure with a pack of dope cars that makes for unforgettable memories. As we enter the winter months, the weather might begin to get hairy for some of you, but let’s start planning something big in ’19. The world is our oyster, and I’m open to your ideas and would love to ride with you to the next event.
In September’s Hole Shot, I made a callout for readers who were down to help us build or co-host a video channel. I received hundreds of great messages from many who have lots of experience wrenching on project cars but also enjoy being in front of the camera. Your messages haven’t been forgotten; however, before I continue, I want to make a separate callout to up-and-coming videographers and video editors who want to be a part of the Super Street team. We’re looking for young shooters who can run and gun, meaning you have to keep up with us as we visit local shops, scour shows for feature cars, follow our photographers during shoots, and get into spontaneous shenanigans (all legal, of course!). It’ll be fun, we’ll have a blast together, and somewhere in between, we’ll be creating cool video content, too!
