With the Ruckus scene growing in popularity during the past couple of months, it was within due time that there would be an event to showcase these ‘scoots’. This is where Alpinestars, Standard Functions, and Fatlace stepped in to give the enthusiasts what they wanted and presented the community with “The Ruck Out” event on March 24, 2012.

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

How Low Can Ya Go?: Tanner Norwood’s Street Scrapin’ Miata

slammed Miata

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
