A Family Affair: Mark Bello’s Inspiring Scion tC

Bello_Scion_cover

Mark Bello and his Scion tC have had quite the relationship; a love/hate to put in simply. A relationship that has gone from near separation and abandonment, to now a tight bond, and being an inspiration to other local car enthusiasts; not only to build a car for themselves, but to also enjoy every aspect of it from start to finish. Hailing from Carnation, Washington, Mark has helped paved the way for his local car scene to be inspired and embrace the culture surrounding their passionate hobby of automobiles.

Street Sweepin’ Scooby: Brenden Ramos’ Static WRX

Brenden_WRX-cover

Brenden Ramos always had a thing for cars growing up. He was surrounded with Euros in his early teens due to the fact that his Dad drove an E36 M3 that originally sparked Brenden’s interest in performance. He always wanted something quick and aggressive, yet clean and refined at the same time without having to go overboard with cosmetic additions. One day his Dad brought home an E92 of the same model as its predecessor and Brenden knew that going fast was right up his alley.

A year went by as the east coast prepared for an event that would change the course of our automotive culture and history. The tri-state generation had yet to prove and showcase their knowledge, hard work, and their way of life. When the announcement was made that Weksos USA was hosting a show right in the center of the North East people flooded with excitement and anticipation, eager to finally climb up as underdogs to the west, and come up as kings of the east.

An E36 Duo (Video)

Derek Buehler and John Quay are among the lowest Static E36’s, with front lips gliding mere millimeters over the beaten roads we have all come to expect in the Tristate area. They aren’t afraid to drive them either. Derek managed to survive the minefield that is Center City Philadelphia on his trip up from Maryland for the Shrink all the Cars meet back in April. John didn’t hesitate to hop in, throw the top down and drive from his home in Central PA down to Maryland for us to shoot the film you see before you. We had a blast and the Baltimore suburbs of Columbia provided for a perfect backdrop. Enjoy!

A hidden gem is often an overlooked object, that once found, surprises many people. For Jason Lau and his 2005 Lexus IS300, “hidden gem” is only the beginning to their story. From blending in to the popular crowd, and then quietly emerging with a slew of JDM parts from a Toyota Altezza, Jason has transformed a somewhat ordinary Lexus into something special.

WEKFEST LA 2013 (Long Beach, CA): Official Video

I flew down to LA and spent the weekend with my buddy Matthew Ramos from Panda Feet Productions. It was great getting to chill with some of the Canibeat crew again and checking out the LA area together. Matthew and I double teamed each car with 5Dmk2s and a variety of lenses and tools. We had a great time and can’t wait for the next. Enjoy! – Loren
