Welcome to the first installment in a series of Revvolution articles where we reflect on the global nationalistic genres (or scenes) that define OUR enthusiast landscape. Domestic, Euro, and Japanese are just some of the dominant cliques that we all identify with. But here at Revvolution, beaming our signal straight from the heart of the Rockies, we present the first chapter in this series: The American Dream.
For Luke Chen, the 1990s hold a special appeal for all things automotive. In his own words; “Aesthetics aside, I love cars with the perfect blend of modern technology and raw performance, and that’s why my favorite car era are sports cars from the ’90s. It’s got just the right amount of modern convenience without diluting the driving experience.” This is a sentiment we can very easily understand. The 1990s saw automakers more than a decade removed from the performance emissions regulations of the mid-’70s, gasoline was cheap, and electronic fuel injection was no longer a new and exotic technology. If you knew where to look, modern classics were blooming.

This past weekend, a few of us took a cruise from our HQ down in the Springs up to Denver and found ourselves deeply immersed in the pure all-wheel-drive lifestyle. Hosted by none other than the local 99cookies, this mini-meet fell victim to sub-zero temperatures and a rolling storm front that pierced the layers straight to the core. But we persevered as this was an event characterized by dozens of dirt-slaying, snow-munching and panty-dropping Evos, Subbies, DSMs, and Euros assembled for one reason – to beat the winter blues by expressing the culture that is defined by “AWD”.
February 2nd, 2013 marked the reintroduction of Global Time Attack to the West Coast. Partnered with Shift-S3ctor, GTA held an all day affair at the Buttonwillow Raceway to kick-off the season right.
