Hindsight is always 20/20 and at some point all of us have probably looked back at a decision we have made or a part we have purchased for a current or past car and wondered “What was I thinking?” We live, we learn, and life goes on… While some of us continue to learn by trial and error, others seem to have a vision. After taking ques from from past and present builds, countless hours of research, and sifting through photos they know exactly what they want and what they have to do to achieve the end result before they even start wrenchin’. Or in Jason Marabito’s case, long before he even purchased his new daily driver!
This week we bring you a shot of Fatlace founder Mark Arcenal’s RWB 964 Porsche dubbed Pandora One. Our friend and photographer Matt Magnino snapped this photo of the 964 while he was out in San Francisco for Wekfest back in February and you are seeing it here on Canibeat first!
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?
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.
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

This week we bring you a shot from our friend Arthur Leytman of Ian from Liberty VIP’s G37 at First Class Fitment 2011! Ian’s G37 is sitting pretty on a set of D2Forged Wheels and looks right at home with with the airplane in the background. Keep an eye out for more information about First Class Fitment 2012 coming soon!
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
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.
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.
