Depending on where you live in the world, it may already be September for you. Here on the US West Coast we have about another 12 hours left in August and that means it’s time to look back at our monthly assortment of feature cars. It also means that you guys are now faced with the difficult task of selecting your favorite feature of the month.
From modern and historic race cars, street machines, and Rat Rods, there were some amazing vehicles featured on Speedhunters in the month of August.
Here they are.

Sooo many cars that meet my interest last month. I liked the Hakosuka Skyline GT-R, LoveFab NSX, The Drift Truck, JGTC meets DTM S15, The 86-X, The Wrecker from Hell, Rocky Auto V8 Hakosuka & Liberty Walk S30. Somehow I ended up choosing the Rocky Auto V8 Hakosuka.
I was really torn on this one. So many great cars, all of which are more than worthy but the wrecker really takes the cake. Something about it... Well no, everything about it screams original and brutal.
crazy how even and varied the votes are going... its usually a landslide victory or just two cars in a battle. I love the Wrecker but i never thought it would be leading on speedhunters against beasts like the LoveFab and DTM S15. I cant wait to see who wins!
Wrecker from Hell! Easily the most interesting car featured this month, and not something I would ever dream of building. Not my thing at all, I should be voting for the Lovefab NSX or the Hakosuka Skyline, but that damn truck/car/thing is so damn cool!
Who keeps voting for the 86? There is not one cool thing about this car. The fitment is off and dropping in a 2jz does nothing for the development of the 86. I'm not trying to be a negative person and put down people's builds but the purpose of building cars is to continue to develope new ideas and technologies to further enhance the industry. Putting a 10+ year old engine into a brand new car is a set back in the tuning industry. Feel free to have your opposing views but most of you know I'm right.
I had to do the Wrecker from Hell simply because it stands out like crazy. From that rifle shifting knob, functional tow hook, to the amazing piston taillights. This is one of the most unique cars I have ever seen and dammit... I like unique.
JGTC outer appearance with DTM power engine.Combination of two awesome machines are one of my childhood fantasy!
Speedhunters, you really need to stop this. These polls make me debate over my choice for half an hour every month. Stop it :( I've always loved Skylines, so the race-liveried KPGC10 wins it for me. The race livery is a throw back to the era of when it was top dog. As for the V8 Hakosuka, it's definitely an interesting and a cleanly done swap, but a V8 in a classic Japanese car is not my thing, unless it was OEM.
The wrecker form hell is such a unique vehicle, and it has the most original shift knob I've ever seen. What a piece of machinery, I can only imagine what that diesel straight 6 sounds like!
Two Skylines, a drift truck, and a NSX with more wing area than a private plane. WOW!
The shear audacity of the Lovefab NSX wins with me!
as much as i love the Hako....i love the engineering that went into the GT300 S15, but if i could i would vote for all of them!
the skyline gt-r was the one id like to own the most. but the wrecker from hell is one of the coolest things i've ever seen..
tough, lots of good cars this month. went with the S15, because in my mind the orange highlights are a nod to the awesome daishin S15
I wanted to vote for the Drift Truck, only because, in my opinion, it symbolizes the "I don't give a fuck let's have some fun!" attitude of drifting, but the Hakosuka Skyline GT-R won me over. Just look at it!
@dan1407 The reason the 2JZ out of Chucky was dropped in was because they had a really short build-time, so they didn't have time to develop the engine. They built the 86 to what it is in just under a month. That's pretty impressive if you ask me. I'm fairly sure I heard Freddy say that they WILL develop and drop in the original flat four when it's properly tuned in and there's enough development to make the engine a viable option. So don't worry, it'll happen soon
@dan1407 Plus, you really can't complain about some 2JZ goodness.
