Black Chariot: Christine Siepka’s ’78 Datsun 280z

ZAN_280-cover

When it comes to building a car; actually putting some blood, sweat and tears into it, cars like Christine’s 280z really hit home. This Datsun is far beyond a simple drop and some fitted wheels. Can you say “Two and a half years in the making” and “work in progress”? Well, that’s exactly how Christine described this gorgeous piece of automotive legendry. With the Z being over 30 years old, starting from ground zero is an understatement; let’s try 6 feet under.

#PictureMeRollin: Robbie Erickson’s Subaru Forester

CL_Robbie_Forester1

Alright, so we see a lot of Impreza’s in the modified scene, but it’s not too common to come across a clean, slammed Subaru Forester on a nice set of wheels. Robbie Erickson’s Forester is much more than just your daily grocery-getting wagon, no, this car is bound to stop you in your tracks when you see it rolling by. These shots, sent in by Connor Limbocker capture Robbie’s Forester in motion, rolling on a set of Watercooled IND cc10′s, measuring 18″x9.5″ all the way around! Thanks for the awesome pictures guys!

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!

Laid Back: Matt Cain’s ’02 Subaru WRX

DM_Matt_SUBcover

Many times, we hear of car builds that seem to magically happen over the winter months, and their first reveal comes at the season opening car show. For Matt Cain, this process of creation didn’t just happen over night; no, it’s taken place over several years. With a handful of phases that the car has gone through, Matt tells us that he is finally satisfied with the end (or hopefully just current) result. The time it takes to come to completion depends on whom you ask, and for Matt, he strongly believes in taking the time to do it right, and we agree!

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.

#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!
