WEKFEST LA 2014 (Long Beach, CA): Official Video

A warm 80 degrees and an offshore breeze is a great combination for a car show. Wekfest LA kicks off the year with yet again another awesome show at the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California, with Canibeat posted up right in the middle of all the madness. This year the theme was RED. Red ruckus, Red DC2 (Integra) and a Red FRS 86. With the Long Beach skyline in the background you couldn’t have asked for a better backdrop. This year we tried to enjoy the show a little more so we talked and met with a lot more people. Surprisingly this year Wekfest LA gave us all a little bit more room to breathe. Giving us quality over quantity, you were able to walk around more and set up your shot for the perfect Instagram post.

Video: Formula Drift Round 3: Miami Heat

On May 31, Formula Drift returned to Florida for Round 3: Miami Heat. This was Formula Drift’s third visit to Florida, but this time in a new location. In 2012 and 2013, Palm Beach International Raceway hosted the series, but 2014 brought Round 3 to Homestead-Miami Speedway. This facility hosts NASCAR, IndyCar, Grand Am, and now the Formula Drift Series in an expansive multi-track venue. The event utilized the infield road course starting at turn 2 and completing each run at turn 5. Vaughn Gittin Jr. earned victory over Chris Forsberg in the final round. This was Gittin’s second win in a row after taking home the victory at Round 2: Road Atlanta. Finishing third behind Gittin and Forsberg was Kenny Moen. This event was a fresh breath for the increasingly large amount of fans and a new challenge for the lineup of drivers. While learning the new track, teams and drivers practiced and adapted to the unfamiliar setup. The Saturday competition was strong and the energy was high. Florida’s heat persisted all day, but the threat of rain held off and the skies remained clear and the track stayed dry. Please enjoy our video coverage from Round 3: Miami Heat.

Dream Girl: Diego’s Seductive Honda S2000

Diego_honda_s2000_COVER

At some point in our lives, we have all had that classic movie moment where everything turns slow motion and the girl of your dreams (or at least you think so at the time) comes through the crowd and everything in your existence is suddenly fixated on her. In that moment, you’re completely and utterly helpless as your little heart is pounding out of your chest and you’re trying to reel your eyes back into your skull. For some, this is a fleeting moment in a foreign city where she disappears back into the crowd, never to be seen again, while others are fortunate to not only watch her walk into the room but also, into their life and they get the chance to pursue this goddess (and some lucky ones even marry her). No matter the outcome, that moment can have a lasting impact and influence one’s preferences, opinions, and desires more than what some are willing to admit.

For those of us who have a love for the automotive we have experienced this same feeling towards a particular make or model, and for some it became a pursuit. No, I’m not talking about the Enzo or Diablo you had on your wall growing up — I’m talking about your non-lottery car. Some are fortunate enough to own the exotics us members of the $30k Millionaires Club could only dream of, but for the Average Joe the term “dream car” can have a different meaning.

Canibeat: Web Picks #6

Ben & Chris Rollin

Wow… what a fun and crazy last few weeks it’s been, and show season has only just started. Spring Fest was such a fun and huge success for us. Our own home state showed us nothing but mad love, and the quality of builds surpassed all of our expectations. I had a chance to go down to Helen, Georgia for SOWO (Southern Worthersee) this past weekend and let me just say it was the most fun I’ve had at any car event ever. I made the trip purely for pleasure and had a blast! I miss it so much already but am already looking forward to Wekfest LA in two weeks. You know the drill, I am back again with this edition of Web Picks. Check out some amazing photos from Garrett Church/GrcExposures, Incognito Media, Jan Glovac Photography, Zandbox Photo, David Schiffner, Richard Benson, Andy aka Sharkix, and Grant Young Photography. Enjoy!

A Family Bond: Nick Pederson’s Volkswagen R32

Nick_Pederson_Volkswagen_R32_COVER

When you have been actively involved in the automotive community for a few years you start to notice a commonality amongst most of the enthusiasts that make this culture. Back in the days of our childhoods we came to know what the definition of a car was thanks to our fathers. Whether it was spending the sun-kissed Saturday afternoons in the garage, fixing up an old Impala, or spending Sunday mornings in local classic car shows on the shoulders of our dads… most of us had our first experience of what we love today with the greatest male figure in our lives. For Nick Pederson those childhood memories didn’t exactly happen like a storybook. Veritably, it wasn’t until his early adulthood that his father began to show Nick the ropes around a car, and those moments were to never be taken for granted.

Beauty in Simplicity: Derek Lum’s Clean & Static Mazda RX-8

Derek_Lum_Static-Mazda_RX-8_COVER

In the last few years there has been an emphasis across all of the car scenes to “keep it clean,” which has manifested itself in the form of an OEM+ style of modification. Personally it’s a style I appreciate and attempt to emulate in my own vehicles because it’s how many think the vehicles should have looked from the factory. It’s amazing what a drop, wheels, badge-less grill, some OE Euro or JDM parts, a little bit of body work/shaving, and an interior swap will do for a vehicle. Sure there is a place for lip kits, over fenders, wings and custom fabrication, but something about an OEM+ modified car seems so… pure.

Slammed Society Presents: Offset Kings (Long Beach, California)

Offset_Kings_2014_COVER2

Slammed Society: Offset Kings kicks off the beginning of show season for most in Southern California, and what better way to kick off the show season than a car show combined with Formula Drift. Long Beach, California is the first stop on the Slammed Society schedule along with Formula Drift, and this location has always been a great time through out the years. This is where you get to see all the cars that have undergone huge changes throughout the winter months for the first time, and after walking around the show for a while what better way to take a break than taking a seat and watching a little Formula Drift live.
