taken by RoXx0r1986, October 16, 2009 Everyone is so exciting about the new 2000-2005 Toyota Celica Halo LED Projector Headlights, they just look so different than the stock one.  The whole design is different and the low beam and high beam has moved to the bottom, and in the middle there are five LED lights for day time running lights.  The top part become the place for turn signal.  There are chrome and black housing available.  After you install these headlights, your first impression is—... more

Hi everyone! It’s been an F*%&ing great weekend here in Los Angeles. Lakers won the championship (go Fisher!!) and the 3rd annual 2009 SpoCom show was a blast.

With the way things are going right now it seems that everyone is putting a lock on their wallets.  Business in the auto industry just is not blooming like the way they use to be.  Everyone knows what happened to Chrysler and now it appears that the situation is downright dreadful. Source Interlink, the company that publishes the majority of car magazines such as Super Street, Sports Compact Car on the newsstands, has filed for a “prepackaged bankruptcy” and will privatize the company,... more

Move Over Nintendo – Nissan Cube

Posted by Koneko Kumamoto On February - 5 - 20091 COMMENT

Hey all my fans out there, how are you?  Let me ask all of you a question.  When you hear the word “cube” what comes to mind?  Nintendo right?  Well move over Nintendo and make room for Nissan.  The Nissan Cube has been on the Japanese market for some time and now it has finally come to the US.  One thing I find really hard to believe is that the Nissan Cube (146.90 inches) is actually a foot shorter than the Mazda MX5. How is all this even possible? I strongly feel Nissan stole Wayne Szalinski’s... more
