It was 5:30am on Sunday, dragging myself out of a slumber I knew I had a mission to accomplish. Dan the Pro-Phan and I had to shoot a black beauty not for the first, nor second, but THIRD time. Now, not every shoot goes according to plan, but when we feel that a car deserves justice you better damn well believe we will do what it takes to make it happen. And determined to be successful with our third attempt Danh and myself embarked on yet another photo journey accompanied by Greg Lilly’s ultra sleek Subaru Impreza WRX STi.
H-Town is where we play.
This is the second feature that Greg has graced our blog with his first being his tastefully modded S2000, shot by local automotive photographer Chris Reno. Jumping from car to car, Greg always found himself back in a Subaru. Maybe it’s the madness that is within the Subaru community that keeps drawing him back or the driving experience. All I do know however is that he is no stranger to this Japanese AWD platform.
Hello ladies and gents, another Nostalgic Wednesday has cometh. This week I will be throwing up a bit of Nostalgia because our main man Mark Manalo just had a baby, so, if you get a chance, give a shout out to congratulate him on the arrival of a next generation ricer. Now, what do we have in store today for Nostalgic Wednesday? The one, the only, Apexi N1 exhaust. That is right folks, the N1. Im getting a little ricey on this one…although not super old per se, it’s arrival in the late 90s took the ricer community by storm.
Photo Credit-Stance Nation....and damn that exhaust looks great.
If you’re one of the 5,400 fans on our Facebook Page, then you know we have inadvertently become known for the crazy pictures we post on there that we find by scouring the internet to bring you interesting automotive pictures you don’t see everyday. Of course, we actually do read every comment on everything we post, and we also listen to any suggestions that you guys may have for us.
That said, one of our fans, Adam Crellin, suggested we should post up some wallpapers on the site. Done! When we can, we will post up a MAX RES wallpaper of a photo that the MaydayGarage guys have taken. First up, Steve Nuss’ Toyota Supra Turbo. If you’d like to know more about this super nice Supra, make sure to check out his feature!!

YUPPPP! Today’s Nostalgic Wednesday is about the beloved Volk TE37s. What is so nostalgic about these wheels?
The funny part is, No one really knows when they were created**. My earliest memory of the wheel was way back in the mid 90′s, when my cousin bought a brand new 15 inch set in white. I was so amazed how light they were and how we jokingly carried each wheel on each hand with ease. Each one of us probably owned a couple of sets, dream of owning one or never liked them. what was your earliest memory of these wheels? Continue reading →
At MaydayGarage, we take pride in our photography, but I’d be telling a lie if I were to say that we didn’t enjoy video. As we have recently upgraded our lenses and computers, we are going to try to dabble in a little bit of video as well. With that being said, we have recruited a new member to the MaydayGarage Team, Newton Liu.
As Khiem and DFan were out doing their rounds with Henry’s NSX, we had invited Newton to join us on the shoot and just play around with some video. Here is the result.
Not too shabby for just “playing around” eh? We hope to include more and more videos to add to our media portfolio, and this is just the beginning. Next month is going to be an eventful month, and we have all hands on deck to bring you the freshest features and event coverage from the Lone Star state!
Here at MaydayGarage we make it a point to show the world what we, as ricers, would like. A few weeks ago we shared with our readers Dennis Muriel’s Do-luck kitted NSX. Ultra clean and “ in-between the lines tuning” were a few of the words that we used to describe Dennis’ style. This week however, we are sharing a different perspective. A perspective of an NSX build that steps outside the lines for a mix between GT and street, we’d like to share with you Henry Kosasih’s version, a widebody Sorcery NA1 NSX.
Just a part of the scenery..
Sitting down over a cup of coffee, Mayday Mikey mentioned to me what it was like the first time he laid eyes upon Henry’s NSX. “ It was as though time stood still, the NSX was stuck there in the moment, allowing you to take it all in, everything that the car had to offer.” Funny how a piece of machinery can make time stand dead in its tracks.
Dead in it's tracks.
I have been fortunate to know Henry for a few years now, and I will tell you that he is no slouch when it comes to building cars. Coming from the European world with a bad ass E46 M3, Henry decided to step up his game with the NSX. And knowing how he had built his M before it was no secret that the day the NSX landed in henrys lap in 2006, it wasn’t going to be a simple tune.
