The Book of Speed by SpeedHunters.

One of Mayday Garage’s biggest inspirations is another car blog that you may have heard about. We have been following SpeedHunters for years now, and have become friends with some of the guys there. Besides being everywhere hunting for speed, one aspect that I absolutely adore is their attention to artistic photography. From Linhbergh (just Linhbergh, kinda like Cher or Madonna) to Larry Chen, I’ve envied their abilities to capture automotive moments on this rock we call earth and hope that one day I can be like them.

That said, I’m excited to say that those crazy bastards have made an entire book that’s 400 pages, 700 photos and weighing over seven pounds of pure art. It chronicles everyday of 2011 through the lenses of 14 different, highly talented photographers. It is available now, but the catch is there is only 1000! If you love cars, art, and photography, this is THE book to get for the year. I’m excited. You should be too.

Be sure to check out the book and read a little bit of what went into it here:

OTWeb video: F1 Belgium

Oh God, how I love F1.

Thankfully, pretty much all of the guys here love F1, and we are super stoked F1 is coming to America. Yesterday’s race was full of the drama, suspense and excitement that F1 is known for. Check out the very first turn in yesterday’s race in Belgium!

We are still working on getting media credentials to cover F1 in Austin, TX this year. It’s not looking too good, but that won’t stop us from trying.

MaydayGarage Does Japan. Day two. (part 1 of 2)

Yeahhhhh….

Sorry about the serious delay. I’ve been a bit busy at my job and between that and trying to recover from my recent illness, I’ve been trying to desperately find the time to put up day two from our travels to Japan. Don’t fret! We’re gonna blow your minds with another awesome post that will make your computer/phone explode.

Mayday. Fucking. Garage.

In the belly of the beast! RWB Japan!

This wasn't for bowling

:D

Like all things in Japan, this one falls under the category of cute.

Saturday trains = not so crowded.

They're not even looking at the Ferrari!!!! >:(

Hide yo daughters, Japan. Mayday is in town.

MaydayGarage Does Japan Day One.

**Thanks to everyone for being so patient! If you didn’t already know, I’ve been fighting an illness that was supposed to kill me exactly one week ago, but i’m here, better than ever! Thanks for the warm wishes, and your comments, but i’m not going anywhere! –DD–**

I know, I know. It’s been over two weeks and we haven’t put up anything from our travels in Japan. Relax! Don’t forget we do this in our spare time! I hope everyone out there got a chance to capture some glimpses of the Tokyo Auto Salon from our favorite blogs out there! No doubt, this year’s TAS was not to be missed, but we want to show you our coverage of the event our way. So with myself and Danh, we managed to capture hundreds upon hundreds of images just to share with our followers. Over the next few days, we will show you exactly what we did in the seven days we occupied the great country of Japan, so sit back, wait for the images to load (there’s going to be a LOT), and take your time.

Man I don't even

Mr. Akagi loved to slap Danny's face for some reason. I have no idea why

This was us 90% of the time we were on the train or subway

Sushi Time with the Mayday Boys.

It’s no secret that we love to eat just like everyone else, so when Park Baker of HighTopFade suggested a place that had good sushi for a cheap price, we were ABOUT it. We took some photos, but I just wanted to share a quick video of what it’s like to be a piece of sushi at a conveyor belt sushi joint. Evan had the great idea of putting a gopro video camera on one of the plates, but left the gopro at the hotel. So our resourceful selves suggested using a cell phone instead to capture people’s reactions.

Lol, more to come.
