1997 Acura Integra Type-R, 1990 Nissan 300ZX and More - Readers’ Rides

We can’t wait to see your car here!

Sep 7, 2011

It’s the summertime, so why not wash up that dirty hood ride of yours and see if you could be one of our published rides of the month. Just remember not to send us any crappy cell phone pictures. We need some hi-res stuff to ensure your car looks sharp in the mag. When you’re ready, submit a couple images to But please don’t send us 20 photos of your car. We know it’s your pride and joy, but we usually run one image of the car. If you haven’t hit the 20th century, feel free to send your pictures by mail to: Super Street, Attn: Readers’ Rides, 831 S. Douglas St., El Segundo, CA 90245. Please include with your submission, a brief spec sheet of mods (don’t forget the year and model of your car), your full name, mailing address (in the event of a prize being given out) and daytime phone. We can’t wait to see your car here!

We’ve seen it with the Subaru and Toyota “86” experiment that was lit ablaze when first announced

Unlike most builds that are a product of some grand scheme of daydreaming and sometimes documenting plans for picking up a specific car and applying a headful of parts and changes to it, this turbocharged 1995 Mazda Miata is the exact opposite. Its owners and builders, brothers Alex and David Wong, had no intentions of

One of the most unexpected things to emerge from an unusual 2020 was just how hot the Japanese tuner car collector market is. If you own a well-kept, low-miles, pre-2000 model year, all original sports car or sport compact from one of Japan’s OEMs, there’s a good chance you might be sitting on a gold
