Random Beat: The Baby BMW


I recently repaired my front lip and somehow chanced upon a pretty cool location to shoot cars. While I was waiting for my client to come for his photo shoot, I decided to take a few snaps of my own car. It’s a BMW 135i. I have a few more mods coming in and it’ll be done since I have a new project car coming in next month. Leave a comment and let us know what you think. Read More

This week we bring you some crisp new wallpapers from the other side of the globe! PJ Moran is a talented young photographer based in Australia that I stumbled across in my daily browsing and he was excited to share these photos of two s2000′s he recently shot. These two gorgeous cars happen to reside under the same roof and belong to two cousins… how cool is that?

Tom Byrne’s Simple Honda S2000 (Video)

For me and my experience, I’ve always been more of a euro automotive guy. It’s that combination of engineering and class that just makes that side of the scene usually more appealing. It’s a mind set that simplicity can go a long way, and you don’t need a mass amount of body work and chrome dipped parts to make a car stand out. Tom Byrne I can safely say, understands this concept of simplicity.

When Tom told me he first bought an S2000 I had mixed feelings. After drifting the stock car out of a chic-fil-a however, my mixed feelings had dispersed. I was hooked. Laughing at the Vtec kick, we started to discuss plans for the new Honda in his life. Me of course concerned he would be going fast and the furious rice status on us. Luckily, that was not the case at all. With simplicity in mind, and months of dedication and work on polishing wheels and saving for hard tops and engine work, I proudly present Tom’s Honda S2000 Video.

LTBMW Car Meet 3/10/12


Every time there’s a LTBMW car meet, it’s pretty much a known fact that it will be big. If you are familiar with Bimmerfest then think of a LTBMW meets just as you would a mini Bimmerfest with plenty of fine BMWs. There were even cars from Norcal and Arizona that made the journey out just for the meet. This time the meet evolved a little and turned out to be similar to a car show. Mackin, HRE Wheels, KW Suspensions, Redbull, Attic clothing, and a few others came out with booths and show cars. I’ve been to every LTBMW meet and I can truly say that if you want a good taste of Socal’s BMW scene, then you should attend one and experience it for yourself. Read More

Daily Dosage: David’s BMW 3-Series


If you’ve been to San Francisco then you’d know that it’s not exactly a city that is lowered car friendly. I know that I personally would never drive my own car up there. However, David decided to go against the norm and lower his BMW 325i and not long after that first drop, he completely changed the look of his stock BMW all together. This is David’s daily driven BMW. Read More

Lurking Monster in the Night: Diogo’s AMS Autowerks GT2


Porsche is a brand that people dream about owning from when they are little kids pushing around their hot-wheels to when they are adults pushing around wheels of their own. Their philosophy when it comes to building a performance influenced chassis, has remained true to its original form for the most part, has managed to last decades and has done all this while succeeding even with all the changes that have come, technology wise, through the years.

LTBMW Meet: 3.10.12

It’s always great when I have the chance to team up with a fellow Canibeat member. Around 7 months ago I received a call from Kenny Cano telling me he was going to be in Southern California soon and he wanted to shoot alongside me. He would do the video while I would do the photos. Sure enough a month after that we met up at LTBMW and did a full day shoot. Now fast forward to February 2012, the video is finally edited and the photos are now released. Coincidentally, LTBMW is having a meet on March 10 and everyone is invited. So if you are interested, check out the rest of the post for more information.

Wekfest IV: San Francisco, CA (2.19.12) Part 3


Over the past couple of years, Wekfest has become one of the most popular car show tours in the country.  What some of you don’t know is that the first Wekfest event was held in San Francisco in a parking garage.  As the years have gone by and the show has expanded to other parts of the country, the San Francisco event has remained the largest and most anticipated event of the year!  This year was bigger and better than ever before with a variety of cars from all parts of the spectrum including, stanced cars, track-ready, domestics, and everything in between.  Nothing was left behind, which is why people from all over the world travel to California to attend this event. We had friends from the Midwest, East Coast, Canada, and even Japan fly in. I personally drove 7 hours to be at this show and by the time the show started, I was running on less than 16 hours of sleep in 3 days.  Although I was lacking in sleep, my coverage wasn’t.

Auto Combine 2012 Official Coverage (Green Cove Springs, FL)

Auto Combine 2012

For a first time ever show, I had very low expectations for The Auto Combine. However, Funk Fashion and Spring Rates did an amazing job putting the event together and this has easily been one of my favorite shows I have ever been to. Hosted in Green Cove Springs, Florida, the weather and location were on point. If you didn’t make it this year, I hope it happens again next year for more to enjoy!
