About The Track Ahead

The Track Ahead is an automotive blog that focuses on providing automotive content in the form of articles, reviews, stories, and detailed accounts of project cars and motorcycles. I started this site in 2016 as a way to share my passion in cars and motorcycles.

I’d describe TTA as an unassuming take on the vehicle and its owner. Whether you own a high-end sports car or a low-end economy car, it’s about the relationship between (wo)man and machinery. How you take care of your vehicle and the story behind how it gets your from point A to point B is what TTA  is all about.

After a few failed attempts to get a site up-and-running, I was able to start and continue operating TTA. One thing that I realize is that if you don’t have a love for what you do, you’ll be more likely to give up. That’s why I’ve managed to continue working on this website. Because I do have other obligations and TTA is secondary, you won’t be seeing daily posts from me. However, I do my absolute best to post weekly or bi-weekly and to provide interesting and useful content for you—that I promise.

About Scott Lam

Scott Lam

I’ve been a petrolhead ever since I got my driver’s license as a teen. I’ve had all kinds of vehicles (see Projects) and have an incredible love for caring for and maintaining these automobiles.

Heavy modifications aren’t my thing, but I do enjoy tasteful mods that look OEM. My taste could be characterized as OEM-plus. This preference of mine is obvious in the way that I maintain my vehicles, but is apparent in my appreciation for other people’s rides too.

More importantly, I appreciate vehicles that are well-cared for. I would much more admire a Toyota Camry that has been taken cared of meticulously by its owner, than a Toyota Supra with extreme mods hiding neglected maintenance. Time and time again, I find myself drooling over any car that’s in pristine condition while window shopping.

I have a particular fondness for 90’s and 2000’s cars, especially performance vehicles of this era. Growing up during this time period, I was engrossed in the amazing variety of stunning vehicles available. Since these cars are now 10-30 years old, they are a lot more affordable and therefore obtainable. Perfect for another project car…
