Racing Rx7 Savanna

While doing my usual morning surfing I came across this very awesome racing version Rx7 Savanna..
When Mazda introduced the sporty new RX-7 in mid 1977, they chose to use this Rotary engine, which had already been available in their pickups, and other sports coupes and sedans within their model range.
The difference between the RX-7 and the other Mazda models was that the RX-7 was marketed directly towards the gearhead sports enthusiast, whereas the other cars in Mazda’s line were sold more as family and economy cars. The RX-7 faced …

Quiet Interceptor

From the streets of Pniel we bring you one of the finest and meanest looking Quest on planet AM owned by Jetro Cijster. Previously owned by his mom, he turned this little sleeper to what it is today, one mean looking fearsome beast. At first the car was fitted with the original Toyota body kit and 16 inch TSW rims. After visiting a few shows in 2008 he decided to do some changes to the car, not only cosmetic wise but also power wise.

AutoModified: So Jet, what was done to …

Predator or Prey – Toyo Twins

Over the weekend I’ve decided to hook up with the owners of two hot looking TC’s. The one resides from Cape Town and the other one is from a small town called Pniel, just outside Paarl. What is so unique about these two TC’s is the fact that they look nothing like what’s out there, that is both in the styling and power department. The red and black one belongs to Donovan and is no stranger to AM as well as to the Cape Town car scene.
 His car was featured …
