Its More Than a Passion for Cars

Tetsuya Okuhara -Toyota GT86

My name is Tetsuya Okuhara, from Shizuoka in Japan. I am a Neurosurgeon .

I currently drive a Toyota 86GT. Back in 2012, there were no fascinating lightweight sports car. GT86, son of the AE86, was released in 2013. The NSX, Supra, Roadster, Impreza and Civic were not yet released therefore, the GT86 was a first in the era. AE86 was a legendary car in the past and in this instance I

assumed that the GT86 would be the next new star, I was not wrong.

I went ahead and decided to purchase the GT86.

The passion and love for automotives have come since my youthful days especially from cars such as the, Fair-lady Z32, and the decorated trucks (as you would call them in Japan "Deko-Tra"). After owning a few cars, I took the decision upon myself to purchase the GT86 and I have customized and modified the car step by step. My followers continuously increased and as did my love for the GT86, I love it more and more each day! At this current date, it's been 8 years since she became mine! I do not regret it one bit...

Majority of my modifications have been undertaken by a professional service however, I did undertake many of the electronic customization myself. Especially the DIY I undertook regarding the headlight from the Lexus RX, that is probably my best example. It is the only one in the world!!!! I have received numerous inquiries regarding the headlight. Check out my Instagram! @lassie.86

Work undertaken by the following:-

Mechanic: Kazuhiro Fujimoto, c.s.POLSCHE, Yamanashi, Japan Exterior: Akinori Arai, Body Work's Hyoukoya, Shizuoka, Japan

The Toyota GT86 is basically my first custom built car. Yea, I know, I owned a Toyota Cardina and Mazda Atenza but never modified them! I did previously own a GT86 in the past however, after installing a few

modifications, the car went to scrap after a road traffic collision in just three months! The very first car I owned was a Toyota Cardina. I think all project car owners always have plans ahead or changes they want to make however, I am planning to install a new honeycomb-carbon hood, roof and trunk made by Marsh Composites. In the middle of all those plans, I am also planning to install new wheels and change the colour of the interior.

Robert Evans Project Citroen C2 VTS Track car

Robert Evans 7


I am 30 years old, from South Wales. I have owned my first Citroen C2 since 2006, still got it, learned to drive in it and never parted with it. I have a real passion for cars, I have since as far as I can remember. Be it playing with toy ones when I was young, or on the PlayStation and xbox when growing up and now the actual machines themselves. I have always been into rallying when growing up, me and my dad going to night road rallies and the ‘Network Q’ now known as Wales Rally GB almost every year without fail. I also love attending car shows in the show season. I attend all the ‘Castle Combe Action Days’ as well as a few others. For many years I attended the shows with a club or applied within the ‘show and shine’ categories or with my good friend Jason and his detailing brands company; Jayswax.

The C2 track car idea came about when in 2018, my old car, my corsa VXR missed a deadline for Spring Action Day and I still attended and watched a lot of people having a blast round the track and I thought I’m actually done turning up at a show and just polishing my car and leaving it for others to look at and I want a go of that. October 2018 I bought the car, completely standard and set about over the winter trying to create my vision under a budget ready for spring action day 2019. I set about completely stripping it out with the assistance of my dad, leaving nothing unnecessary in there, sound proofing, headliner, seats, airbags, all trim, half the dashboard, door cards, speakers, radio, aerial and all wiring that was no longer needed etc. It was all binned. I managed to source a roll cage from a good friend at Pitstop Garage who’s rally car had become uneconomical to repair and he had replaced it and was breaking it. He was going to let the cage go with it to the scrapyard and instead he said I could have it. We removed it and it is now plated and welded securely into the car by Ryan at Pitstop.
