Nissan X-Trail. More Ex than Trail?

Nissan X-Trail. More Ex than Trail?

Sleek but MachoFirst Impressions The road to Port Douglas. Windy, twisty, scenic and thrilling. It’s a sunny day, 30 degrees in fact, and our hour long journey through the hills and along the coast will test out our vehicle’s climate control to the max. While the road is fitting for an exotic sports car as the sun rises, we’re taking a less cliché approach today. I collect a Nissan X-trail, and slide the key fob into my pocket, never to be seen again. The keyless entry blips and in we…

Project: Supra. Time for Surgery

Project: Supra. Time for Surgery

We’re back! So a bit of works been going on in the background since she arrived. It was surprisingly light work to roll her into her temporary cave.

New Beginings

Written by: Anton So after a nostalgic look back to some Jap Muscle on the main site, the decision was made pretty easily as to what the first full-chat build would become. Thumbing through the local free-ads and after calling in some favours, a flat-bed was on the way out to a gent offloading a ’94 Supra which had been treated to a 2JZ-GTE, or for the un-initiated, Turbo Conversion. Featuring the N/A’s 5 speed manual box, but transplanted with a 2JZ TT, the car was an interesting miss-mash of…
