A first for any import title, we created a totally user-interactive wheel guide that allowed you to place an Integra cut-out over wheel selections so one could get a rough idea of how dope or wack it would look on your ride.
Honda gives out four Civic Si's to four competing magazine titles to see who can build the fastest, best looking car with the best handling. Not to brag, but which magazine do you think won?
Rikdaddy's 240SX takes the cover as we highlight drifting for the first time. Naturally we managed to mess that one up, too.
Get schooled from the originators of the import scene: a retrospective piece on the early 80's car clubs from So Cal.
Yamz' first magazine worthy ride, a jet black Mazda RX-7 FC3S.
Now the non-endemic companies are starting to take us seriously: Hot Wheels produces a 1:24 scale version of your real life project Civic coupe.
This Track Attack Altezza from HKS is the king of time attack racing in Japan. It's so fast, it was outcasted by many other tuners, probably because they couldn't build anything to beat it.
JUN Auto Mechanic built two Civic hatchbacks for us to give away: one for drag; one for Solo racing.
Spring Break Tuner Bash kicks off to much success, but that's probably because we paid $30K for Oakenfold to show up for an hour set.
Out first old school feature was on the godfather of rotary science, Tod Kaneko, seen here doing his best Zoolander impersonation.
You know you've done your job right when an actress mentions on national television just how weird your questions were during the press junket. Of course, this was the first Fast and Furious, so we had to do it.
What would you do if you won the lottery? MotoRex showed us one way we could dispose of the cash real quick: buy a Skyline GT-R.
We've been ahead of the curve on many instances, so it was no surprise that nobody noticed NOB Taniguchi's S15 as our cover car. World exclusive didn't mean jack!
We took over the Civic Si challenge by giving the EP hatchback to four major tuning companies instead of competing against magazine editorial staffs. This way you got to see the cars in real action instead of us winning all the time.
One of the best events in recent years was the arrival of D1GP on a US track. Packed stands and Japan's top drifters-pure bliss for all the kids who go sideways.
To really change things up, we thought we'd bring one lucky reader to our Spring Break Tuner Bash as a guest editor. We found David Ortiz and eventually brought him on-board as a full-time staffer. Mysteriously he disappeared off the face of the earth, never to be seen again. Dah-veed, where the hell are you?
Super Street, after years of dated layouts, goes for the extreme makeover with mixed results. That's probably because Roel shamelessly took one for the team by dressing in drag.

Our second Time Attack attracted double the amount of racers to try to beat Signal Auto's first lap record. Tarzan took it with the Cyber Evo, driving several cars in other classes to the top spot.

Whoa, brother the Hulkster and son, Nick, allow us inside their Floridian castle to photograph their Supras.
Acura issues a RSX Challenge and once again we're at war with our competitors. We may not have won the overall battle, but we looked damn good doing it.
Put up or shut up-that's the premise behind the television show Pinks on the Speed Channel, where two teams are placed heads-up on a drag strip for all the bragging rights and the loser's car.
Two Silvias and a 180SX- you could say that NOB Taniguchi has a thing for Nissan's famous S-chassis.
Gather the industry's hottest models, the fastest drivers and self-made celebrities (that's us) and you have the makings for one hot ad-you betta Axe somebody
Feb.- Oct. '06
And finally, there's no better way for us to say how much we love ourselves (other than touching ourselves) and the people who've helped make Super Street a success more than the Top 10s we've compiled throughout this whole year.
