When me and JohnP set out to fly to Atlanta, GA and cover Formula D, our main goal was to give our readers a view of what goes on, seeing that Formula D hasn’t been to Texas since forever. In our travels, we meet some really cool people, and really cool cars all with the same passion. Some people are into Drag, some Drift, some AutoX, and some just like to look good, so variety is definitely out there. Enthusiasts nowadays have different weapons at their disposal, whether it be AWD Mitsu’s, FF Hondas or RWD GenCoupes, there’s plenty of cars to choose from.
On a Sunday morning, it takes A LOT to get me out of the comforts of my bed because the chances are likely that the Saturday night festivities require a degree of recuperation. But this Sunday was different, as my morning was about to start off with the company of Mr. Greg Strube and his immaculate BMW E30 M3. Original parts and sexy lines made this M3 all business and a Bimmer Lover’s wet dream.
There are people that like cars, and then there are people who are car enthusiasts. There are car enthusiasts that are brand loyal and there are some who love all kinds of cars, place of origin no matter. I would consider myself one of these types, as I have an admiration of all types of vehicles that go fast on four wheels.
And then there are car fanatics that are borderline obsessive. Van Luong falls into the latter category, and has the proof to back up that claim. The specimen in question is a pristine and restored 1973 Datsun 240Z that’s older than pretty much our entire readership.
