SPEED WARHOUSE'91 NISSAN 240SX

  |   Best Car Features Of 2017 Speed Warhouse 1991 Nissan 240Sx Takta Harness

It looks like something from Mad Max, but way cooler! Mike Perez swapped in a 558hp 1JZ-GTE, stripped off the exterior, and even put in a demilitarized .50 caliber machine gun.

XTEGRA AND M-EXO-5

  |   Best Car Features Of 2017 Xtegra M Exo 5

Similar to the Speedwarhouse car, this Integra and Miata have been stripped down to bare bones. Structurally the cages are all based upon NHRA or NASA rulebooks. The company Krowrx says any car can become an Exo car and takes a few weeks for the whole conversion.

JDM LEGENDS '73 DATSUN 240Z

  |   Best Car Features Of 2017 1973 Datsun 240Z 240Zg Overfenders

Eric Bizek, the main man at JDM Legends, really outdid himself with this Fairlady Z. Take note of the careful attention to detail on the exterior, you'll see an equal amount of attention and care with the engine setup, which includes a stroked L-series using a 3.2L Rebello Racing kit and a DCOE triple-carb setup. For us, cars like this are timeless.

JERRY FAN'S '10 NISSAN GT-R MUZILLA

  |   Best Car Features Of 2017 Muzilla 1970 Ford Mustang Body

Imagine you see a wild widebody Mustang and as it passes by, it sounds like a GT-R! Well, that's exactly what you get with Jerry Fan's GT-R. Nearly everything had to be modified for it to work and Jerry will tell you the only similarity the Mustang and GT-R share is the wheelbase.

MIKIE SORRELL'S '87 MITSUBISHI STARION

  |   Best Car Features Of 2017 1987 Mitsubishi Starion Modified Front Facia

One of the best cars we found on our trip to Import Alliance Atlanta was this '87 Mitsubishi Starion built by Mikkie Sorrell. Long gone is the G54B engine and in its place is Toyota's underrated 1JZ engine making over 400hp.

BRANDON WILBUR'S '93 ACURA NSX

  |   Best Car Features Of 2017 1993 Acura Nsx Front Bumper

This NSX might piss off a few purists because of its K20 engine swap. But horsepower is horsepower and this one is pushing over 900! How many NSXs do you know that have that same dyno result?

EDDY (THONGVONE) CHOUMPHIMMASEN'S '97 HONDA CIVIC

  |   Best Car Features Of 2017 1997 Honda Civic Ag Wheels

When Eddy first purchased this car it was silver and had a B16A engine swap. What was supposed to be a GS-R swap with OEM aero became a Maroon Red hot hatch packing 874hp and 686 lb.-ft. of torque.

JASON HARADON'S '94 HONDA CIVIC Si

  |   Best Car Features Of 2017 1994 Honda Civic Si Front Bumper

There is a wide spectrum of Honda builders. On one end you have the poorly built, eBay product-infested buckets, and on the other end you have immaculate masterpieces like Jason Haradon's EH3. Some might think it's overkill, while others think this build is absolute necessity. What side are you on?

WITAWAT NOPTHANYA'S '91 HONDA CIVIC

  |   Best Car Features Of 2017 Civic Ef3 Headlights

K-series swaps are seldom seen in Thailand. What's even harder to find is a clean EF Honda Civic. Nopthanya has both and drives it regularly on the streets of Bangkok.

AKI FUCHIGAMI'S '91 NISSAN SKYLINE GT-R

  |   Best Car Features Of 2017 1991 Nissan Skyline Gtr Greddy Side Skirts

One of the coolest R32s we've ever featured. Aki Fuchigami is the founder of Garage Bomber and gained fame as a mechanic. This R32 was his first demo car and although the car was finished in '99, a few creature comforts were reinstalled and includ carpet, power windows, and street registration. This once top contender in the drag racing world has transitioned into an all-around track car.
