Catch-up Post; Fuel Magazine Coffee & Classics IV, The Japan Issue Launch.


Reposted from my former Kustom Auto blog, I’ve been a follower, supporter and buyer of Fuel Magazine (and more recently it’s sister publication) Tank Moto for several years now, so I was quite looking forward to this release. Shortly after I had begun developing an interest in Japanese Car Culture, of which I’m becoming more passionate about, Fuel Press released Fuel Magazine Issue 18 – The Japan Issue, a launch I couldn’t miss.

So I headed down to the launch in Port Melbourne which coincided with the Fuel Magazine run Coffee & Classics IV in Fennel St, located between the Globe Shoe Company and Toyota Headquarters, with hair trimmings on offer at Uncle Rocco’s & coffee available from the Salford Lads Club.

Above & Below – This S13 looked rather sublte, just the deleted rear seat and halfcage hinting at what it may have been packing under the bonnet, this was backed by the sound of it taking off up the street, simply amazing.
