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!

This IS It!: Jason Lau’s Lexus IS300

DM_JasonIS-cover

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

…And Beyond: Scott Ramos’ Infiniti G35x (Part II: film)

After a long winter, and countless hours spent tearing the car apart, and putting it all back together again, Scotty Ramos is back with one of our favorite contributing photographers, Sean Dougherty, to bring us the video portion of “…And Beyond (Part II)”. With a whole new look on this gorgeous, one-of-a-kind AWD sedan, Sean gives us a first-hand peak at what Scotty’s been up to over the past couple of months including a whole new paint job and some flawless body work in the rear quarters! Lets just say, you won’t be disappointed!

#PictureMeRollin: Taylor Benton’s Mazda3

20130404-IMG_5869

So, most of us know the silly Mazda memes “At first I was like ____, and then I was like ____!” Well, Taylor Benton’s slammed Mazda3 is anything but silly, this car is sweet and didn’t make me smile, but it made my jaw drop. This thing is stunning, and the pictures that Connor Limbocker sent to us are nothing shy of awesome either! I can honestly say, Mazda has always been an underdog in the car scene, but when done right, they look down-right awesome! Thanks for the pictures guys!

Well, I’m not sure about you folks, but it has been a very wet April. That’s not to say we can’t take some awesome rollers of some serious cars though! This week’s #PMR comes from Khoa Nguyen who shot Rami Qasem’s S2k. Rami is currently sitting on a staggered set of CCW’s, 18″ in diameter, a healthy 10″ in the front and 11.5″ in the rear! Despite the weather, this thing still looks good moving! Thanks for the shots Khoa!

#PictureMeRollin: Dan Rama’s Civic EG

Standard-Function-EG-6

In this week’s #PMR, Ejay Marte shows us two shots he snapped of Dan Rama’s Civic EG hatch. Now, the first thing I noticed when Ejay sent these pictures over was the almost insane amount of camber in the back, and my initial thoughts were confirmed when I found out that the Exedium rear camber kit had been modified to exceed the previously limited max camber allowance. Of course, we can’t forget to mention the wheel specs, which come out to be 16″x9″ all the way around, but with a staggered offset at +18et in the front, but a -12et in the rear…and now that modified camber kit makes complete sense!
