Who's ready to get 2009 movin'? We are. We couldn't think of a better way to kick things off than by squeezing in more features than we've ever done into one issue. You asked for more cars, you got it. We handpicked the best cars from across the country that best represent styles ranging from street-driven show cars to fully decked out track racers and caught one of the ultimate driving machines on the street today: Nissan's R35 GT-R, as envisioned by James Chen at Axis Wheels. We're spreading the love in case you're wondering, so embrace all the FWD, RWD and AWD delights we have prepared for you. They're dee-lish.
We have a special story involving the Honda Ruckus, the two-wheeled phenomenon that set a serious movement on fire this past year and hasn't shown any signs of fatigue. South Korean resident, Wan Lee spent nearly a year on the 49cc scooter, traveling from coast-to-coast to discover the real America. How did it turn out? Turn to "Spill the Beans" now and find out - you'll be just as captivated as we were when we spent days following the TotalRuckus.com forum.
Tech: Wow - we actually have some tech back in this issue. About time, right? We dust off an old project S2000 and made it more Super Lap Battle competitive by bolting on pure performance adders from J's Racing. Also hot, if you're big on the fine details of car building, we dive into the world of wire tucking to help clean up our project EF with the help of Chase Bays, an old-school way of modifying that's taking clean beyond the normal definition.
Our special gift to you this year is the 2009 Calendar presented by the DriveshaftShop.com. We made it double-sided to keep both the hardcore car enthusiasts and hornballs happy, so depending on your preference, there are cars coming from one direction and smokin' hot import models - including Nicolette Lacson, Ashley Sarto, Alicia Whitten, Ms. Genna, Miss Formula D 2008 Catherine Kluthe and Melyssa Grace - on the other. Don't forget to check the DriveShaftShop.com Calendar page each month in Super Street as we'll debut new photos of these girls throughout the year. You'll also have a chance to download exclusive bonus images and wallpaper for your desktop by logging onto www.superstreetonline.com, so make sure to log on each month. Keep in mind the printed calendar is a newsstand-exclusive and you know what that means subscribers: go out and get yours!
Happy? Yes? Good. We thought so.
