The duo’s journey, especially their immersive experience in Japan, showcases cars as more than machines – they’re symbols of achievement, identity, and cultural expression. From meticulously reimagined Porsche 911s to the adrenaline-fueled underground drifting scenes of Tokyo, the series skillfully connects the enthusiasm for cars with the Japanese concept of “Ikigai,” elevating it from a mere hobby to a life philosophy. A passion for driving that drives its enthusiasts. While I’m a bit disappointed they never go deep into the means of partaking in the hobby, the series at least highlights how the passion has inspired many to achieve beyond their initial means.

Being 6’ 4” and Asian, he never really fit in, so he got comfortable standing out. Not only is it easy to find him in crowds, he dabbles in the culinary arts, does a little stand up and improv, and can honestly say Spider-Man is the Jesus-like influence of his life. Kevin Fenix loves dogs, movies, television, comics, comedy, and to shoot people… with video.
