I have a pile of old import magazines collecting dust on my bookshelf. Today, I'm going to share one with you: ten years old to the month, this August 2012 issue of Super Street Magazine is a window to the world of tuners ten years past.
Now, 2012 wasn't peak Super Street. But it was absolutely a different time. Instagram and TikTok weren't the defacto show car showcases of the day: magazines still held the title. Getting your car featured was still the dream of every shadetree mechanic. Drifting and stance were the only games in town, and the first gen Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ still hadn't hit the showroom floor.
If you like this kind of content, let me know. I have plenty more, including some seriously old issues, older than at least a third of our audience, that I'd love to share with you.
