There is a saying, “Once a die-caster, always a die-caster.” Actually, i totally made that up. But the truth is, the collecting of these little cars is an immensely addictive hobby. One that i thought i had given up many years ago only to succumb every now and then. Occasionally giving in when i spy […]Read more "Redux: Ignition Models’ 1/18 KPGC10 “Hakosuka” Skyline"
It’s been some time since we last slid behind the wheel of the F20 1 Series. Close to 4 years in fact, but its Life-Cycle-Impulse (BMW-speak for mid-life facelift) couldn’t have come at a better time. On one hand, the 1’s divisive styling was doing it no favours, and on the other, Mercedes’ A-Class is […]Read more "One for the road: Driving the BMW F20 116d"

I say a only a “little bit” because doing geeky car stuff wasn’t really […]Read more "Tokyo Auto-Otaku: Back Once Again"
Happy Birthday Singapore! Or at least, Happy Belated! Our little nation celebrated her 50th birthday just a week ago which granted us a lovely 4-day weekend full of activities all over our sunny island. Incidentally, since the last Cars & Kopi meet was about 3 months ago, why not try having another one? Of course […]Read more "Cars & Kopi – SG50 Edition"
When someone asks if you’d like drive a Porsche 993 for a classic Porsche/Ferrari morning run, what should you say? You say “Yes!”. Which is how i found myself behind the wheel of the Yellow Banana a couple of weekends back. Our little 993 Cabriolet was the acting camera-car for the morning and i was […]Read more "Clash of The Classics: Porsche/Ferrari Drive"
