A lot of people regard Cubans—who have mechanical ingenuity bred from decades in a closed economic system—as the best wrenchers on earth. I think that title belongs to the mechanics of Hong Kong, because they do their wrenching on the streets.
Last month, I visited Hong Kong on a quest to get a taste of the territory’s thriving JDM car culture. In the process, I met Alan Chan, the most badass mechanic I’ve ever met.
I just got back from a trip to Hong Kong, where I laid eyes upon some of the most incredible Japanese cars in existence. Here’s what I saw in just 20 minutes one night in Yuen Long.
Yesterday I was walking down a street in Yuen Long, Hong Kong when an obscure Range Rover-ish car came barreling my way. “What is this car?” I asked myself as it drove by, only to learn from the rear spare tire cover that the owner apparently has no clue either.
My brother is obsessed with cars, but he’s stuck in one of the least car-friendly cities in the world: Hong Kong. So, to satiate his primal automotive needs, Mike just takes pictures of the coolest cars he sees, and as it turns out, there are lots of cool cars in Hong Kong. Many of them are abandoned.
Hong Kong is Minivantopia. There’s no denying it. I flew to Hong Kong a few weeks ago and saw the coolest, most pimped-out minivans I’d ever seen.
Okay, so it's not actually an EK9 wagon, although that would be really, really cool. This is in fact a marriage of two different Honda vehicles which share parts: a Civic and an Orthia. And despite this being JDM as hell, this actually isn't Japan. It's Hong Kong. Still totally badass. EK WAGON, GUYS. GET EXCITED.
Dozens of Hong Kong motorists and pedestrians rushed to grab loads of money after an armored truck's doors opened by accident on a busy road, spilling about 4.5 million US dollars in HK$500 notes (US$65) on Christmas Eve, reports the South China Morning Post. Check out all those frantic bastards.
At Jalopnik, we understand your occasional need to stalk a car. Maybe you want a picture, or to meet the owner and say what a great car it is. Or leave a note or something. Things are different in Hong Kong, though, where they're basically celebrity stalking buses. Yes, buses.
Whenever there's a car chase, GTA comparisons inevitably arise. But this particular car chase totally looks like Grand Theft Auto. Really!
A legal website used by attorneys to privately discuss case law is shutting down after 10 years because the owner no longer feels the site's users are protected from government spying. After federal threats led to the closure of several secure email providers, the publisher of Groklaw closed her own operation last…
Hooniverse's own Jay Ramey spent a summer in Hong Kong, and during his time there he made it his mission to track down rare 1:43 diecast cars from the 80s and 90s. A daunting task, considering he could only read Cantonese numbers...
The torrential rain comes in on its little cat feet, completely engulfing the Hong Kong International Airport.
The people of Hong Kong sheltered in their homes and watched in horror as a 54-foot-tall duck threatened their fair city from the harbor.
We knew Hong Kong was a crowded city, but high real estate prices there have even inflated the price of parking spaces to insane levels.
An axiom of supercars appears to be that the more wonderful and rare it is, the more likely it'll be crashed. The wonderful Pagani Zonda F is certainly rare — just 25 built — and now one's been crashed in Hong Kong. For the second time. And our tipster thinks it might belong to an exec at fashion house Dolce &…
As soon as I saw this photo I had to know the story. There are too many markers of a very specific time: a McLaren F1, a British Army Helicopter, a Hong Kong airbase. What's happening here?
We wouldn't blame you for mistaking this parking deck for a Sheiklet's playground in Abu Dhabi. This deck in Hong Kong holds some of the world's most exclusive
iron aluminum, including a Porsche Carrera GT, a few Lamborghinis and a Ferrari Enzo. It seems as if China is doing a better job of Saving the Enzos than we…
