Southern California photographer and videographer Sam Ipman recently just wrapped up a photoshoot with Daniel Leung’s static and daily driven Subaru WRX STI Hatchback. The two met up before hand to quickly plan the video and how things were going to go down and then they hit the streets of Los Angeles. Sam told us that “Daniel is a super chill guy from LA building his car with such a deep passion.” Enjoy this teaser video and expect the full photo feature and story to release soon.
After three successful years at Downsview Park, it was time for Fitted to move to a larger location at the Brampton Fairgrounds. This epic event was held on Saturday May 25, 2013 and put on by the people from Stretch & Poke. We hope you guys enjoy the official Canibeat Fitted Showcase 2013 video!
Coming from Maryland, I don’t have the luxury of attending these kinds of things on a whim. It’s a very expensive planned mini vacation, but once again Weksos Industries delivered. WFLA is held at the Queen Mary Events Park in Long Beach, CA. It’s right on the water with a spectacular view the marina and downtown, not to mention some damn good landscaping too! This is why I love this event so much. It’s not just a car show; it’s an experience. The amount of new friendships and people brought together by the WekFest Tour is probably more that anyone could possibly comprehend. Don’t get me wrong – the cars are top notch and I would be lying if I said that it wasn’t my #1 reason for going, but it just never ceases to amaze me how much more WekFest brings to the table. To make a long story short, if you haven’t been to Wekfest, make sure you hit up one of their events near you. With 6 locations worldwide including Hawaii, Japan, Texas, New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, Its worth the drive (or flight in my case!). Enjoy the pictures!
The Wekfest events are synonymous with quality builds and great vibes. Originally native to Northern California they have since branched out and have been holding Wekfest LA for a few years now. Like the previous year, skies were clear and made for a great day to come out and enjoy the event. Enjoy our massive coverage of this great event.
After being started as a small shop get together in 2005 by Grossman Tuning, Water by the Bridge 2009 marked the progress of the event as a whole. Wanting the show to be a place for Euro enthusiasts of all types, Grossman started to set up the show. After getting approval for one of the sickest places around, Water by the Bridge was set to be held at the gorgeous Waterfront Park in Louisville, Ky. Each year, more people came. In 2012, about 200-250 cars showed up, but that’s nothing close to what 2013 had to offer. Apparently word had gotten out; Water by the Bridge was the place to be in 2013.
It’s a subtle, yet distinguished platform. The BMW M5 is a refined gentleman’s car with a flare of exuberance and vigor. My long time friend Kirill knows these qualities oh so well, and he has managed to take the M5 to a crazier level. Sporting a fresh matte silver wrap, the M5′s presence is overwhelming and profund. The car fits 20×11 and 20×12 DPE CS5 wheels while dropped on H&R springs. The V10′s scream is amplified beautifully with the addition of the Tubi exhaust and RPI intake. With the carbon accents, dark wheel faces, and body color that reminds you of a beckoning storm, Kirill’s M5 is sinister and threatening. The finesse of the luxury and class still remain, however, and this car is an artisitc fusion of grim, obnoxious force and tasteful, aesthetic elegance. Kirill has named this machine Emma, and she is an exquisite machine.
Southern Worthersee is one of those truly magnificent times we think about all year long. Even after the show’s over and we start the trip back home, we immediately get excited for the next year’s event. Sowo stands alone and unique among all the other shows. Helen, Georgia, a scenic, captivating Bavarian inspired small town graciously hosts the weekend’s event and welcomes Volkswagen, Audi, and many other car enthusiasts from all over the states. I prepared for the trip down south from Virginia Beach with a convoy of friends and set out to film this spectacular show.
It’s official, Southern Worthersee now rivals H20 International for the best Volkswagen/Audi show on the east coast. 2013 was noticeably larger than any previous year. There were more people, cars, burnouts, and cops than ever before. Thankfully Helen, Georgia still welcomes the stance crowd with open arms. The level of craftsmanship and style was, as always, unbelievable. The amount of money, time, and effort put into these cars is staggering. In addition, it never ceases to amaze me how far people come for this show. Some of the license plates this weekend included Utah, Toranto, and Mexico. They make our humble trip from Philly seem like a breeze. I had a blast providing this coverage and I hope you all enjoy! Hope you enjoy the video.
For eighteen years the Toyota Owner’s and Restorer’s Club have been holding an annual meet of all things Toyota. Hundreds of Toyota owners and fans made the journey out to the Queen Mary Events Park in Long Beach to view the wide range of vehicles displayed. Just like the previous years I have attended Toyotafest didn’t disappoint. As I made the drive to the event I couldn’t help but wonder what I would come across this year.
As the show season kicks off again this year, we all have our favorite events to look forward to months ahead. On my personal list of favorite shows is Springfest, an annual gathering presented by Virginia Beach’s Sumospeed crew. Every year the event grows larger and larger and the venue stays packed throughout the whole day. Every kind of car is welcome and there is a range of class entries for all kinds to enter. Stanced cars fitted on air and proper wheels were once again the popular favorites but a variety of muscle cars, exotics, and classics were proudly shining in attendance as well. We braved a handful of heavy downpours during the day, but once the sun came back out and dried the rain we got back to enjoying one of the biggest car show spectacles ever seen in Virginia Beach. Hope you guys enjoy the video!
