March 2008 - Usual Suspects

Contributors And Unsavory Characters

Mar 1, 2008

Our list of contributors this month is small, but distinguished-sort of like our Johnsons. But they're the ones who make things happen when we're in a pinch.

Gary Narusawa
It's weird, but you never know where you're gonna find good help. Take Gary Narusawa for instance; he's always been a knowledgeable guy who seemed to know a lot about cars. Gee, why not ask him for tech advice? Now answering your tech problems is a cinch, especially since you don't have to rely on us to do it anymore.

Tetsuya Ogushi
It 's hard to believe, but it's been nearly six years since we first met Tetsu. Does anyone know how we met him? Imagine some Mexican guy emailing you from Japan, asking if you can meet; that's like asking for a taco at a sushi restaurant. We probably would've never recognized him if he didn't stop to say hola. Our lives have never been the same since.

Roel Concepcion
Although he's been keeping quiet these days, Roel graced us with a much needed cameo appearance, but blamed Manny Pacquiao as his inspiration for distancing himself from us. Roel secretly yearns to be just like the Pacman, throwing punches and taking jabs from all who oppose him, and passing out money like it's water. Sadly, Roel doesn't have those kinds of funds to give out and must resort to writing for us to make those ends.

Henry z. Dekuyper
After finishing his last tour of duty in Japan and the rest of the '07 season at SEMA and the Super Lap Battle finals, Henry went into hibernation with nothing more than a pile of pixelated nudie mags from Japan and a copy of 2 Girls, 1 Cup on DVD. We tried setting up a hidden camera to test his reaction on the short film, but it mysteriously went to white noise as the music started rolling...

Scott Garpot
Scott Garpot is a man of the night; not in the way of a street walker, although he does hail from his hometown of Bangkok. No, we mean he's always out at the popular clubs, poppin' photos like our own personal paparazzi. We can always count on the S-man to get the go-go dancers to pose with us as if we were their best friends.



Preview the April 2019 issue of Super Street, with the first modified A90 Supra (sort of), an underground RX-7 drifter, Carbon Signal’s threesome of Datsun, and more!

The G-Class has changed a lot since the 460-series debuted in 1979. Today, the G-wagon is now as much an S-Class as it is an off-roader

Iconic livery and 420 whp transform this classic Mazda.

That's about what the Honda Civic Type R makes and nearly twice as much power as we got from the last Mini JCW GP back in 2012
Collin WoodardFeb 13, 2019
Created exclusively for Japan, the model gets no powertrain upgrades but looks fantastic enough that we don’t really care.
