The Audi B6 was the quintessential German sport-luxury platform of the past decade. The styling is iconic and elegant. Marc Davis has gone through four exterior colors, four suspension setups, and a handful of wheels in his seven years of ownership. His A4 has evolved over time into the simple yet striking machine you see here.
His name Jerald Yutadco, AKA JAYCRAY. Word of mouth is that he is the first to put an Acura RSX on bags. As of now he is running on UAS Air Suspension and sitting on Work Meister 3PC; 18×10.5 and 18.9.5. The RSX is a work in progress, and as of now he’s continuing toward his goals and expectations. We hope you enjoy the video!
None of my friends had ever been to VAG Fair before so this year we decided we should see what all the hype was about. I have to say Corey Sterling has organized an impressive gathering. VAG Fair, which takes place at the Fairgrounds of York Pa, is a relaxing weekend of camp fires, ice cold beer and European cars. Unique to most shows, camping at the show grounds is welcomed and it turned out to be a blast. Of course for those more inclined to sleep in a real bed, the Best Western and Holiday Inn are only a mile from the show and they provide nightlife for the weekend by hosting huge meets. There’s no doubt we’ll be heading back next year. Enjoy!
Your first car, that car that is usually one that you may not have gotten to exactly pick out yourself but still turns out to be one filled with memories. For a car enthusiast it’s our first hit of what will eventually become a life-long addiction; a life filled with a passion for anything on wheels. For Ricky Granado, he started with a 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer. Its looks were tolerable and its performance was lacking but it would last him through the ups and downs of his first years behind the wheel and would give him just a taste of what would come to fruition in the following years.

2013 marked the 5th year anniversary for Wekfest, “the Superbowl” of car shows. The past two years we’ve attended as a brand Fort Mason in San Francisco was the official venue. After out growing Fort Mason this year marked the first year at the San Jose Convention Center (which is bigger by 40,000 square feet)! The new venue did not have the same feeling as being in San Francisco, but it was definitely a huge upgrade in size to accommodate the stampede of spectators that Wekfest is notorious for enduring.

I first met Mike at a local get-together on a summer night last year in Melbourne, Florida. After a few short greetings we were heckling one another and joking like longtime friends. Mike’s car has gone through many changes in a short time span, but Mike has not. He is the same jovial and social guy who is part of this car scene for the right reasons – it’s about the people we befriend more than the cars they drive.
Josh Joyce’s Willy’s Rat Rod is a controversial culmination of master craftsmanship fueled by an attitude of not giving a f***. He went into this build doing whatever he wanted how he wanted. His goal was to build something outlandish with the parts he had laying around. Pairing a Willys truck with a VW turbo diesel and then throwing tractor tires on it wouldnt sound like a typical build for anyone. However, Josh Joyce’s erratic persona drives his willingness to shock and constantly blow minds; and this car is nothing out of the ordinary for his life. People are shocked by the work and the style, but positivity always illuminates onlookers’ smiles.
Enjoy this video that showcases the dire insanity of Josh Joyce’s Willys.
Marking its third season this past June 29, 2013, Eurokracy Montréal is the go-to European automotive event in Canada. Eurokracy Montréal is a day-long showcase of the baddest rides in North America focusing on quality. Competitions like a full NHRA ¼ mile drag, burnout, show & shine and a world’s first low-car competition titled “The Neckbreaker” presented by AccuAir Suspension had the thousands of spectators pumped from morning until night.
This was the 3rd year that Stancewars held their show at Bellevue Community College’s parking structure. The parking structure has an amazing view of the Seattle Skyline and with perfect weather one couldn’t ask for a better show. This was my first time attending the show and I was thoroughly impressed with the selection of cars that were in attendance. The top floor consisted of some of the vendors and the Top 100, which were cars that were carefully selected by the staff and the best of what the Pacific Northwest has to offer! The lower levels consisted of general entry cars and there were a huge variety of cars from people all around the PNW. This is not a show to be missed, make sure and check it out next year and enjoy our coverage!
Enjoyment and memories. While cars are originally why we all got into the “scene” as it’s called these days, the real reason we all manage to weather the storm of drama is because of the people we meet and the memories that are made over the years. For most, we countdown months, weeks and days to meets like Import Alliance, Southern Worthersee, H2O International, Wekfest and tons of others because of the friends we will reunite with and laughs that will be shared with them.
