First Class Fitment 2014: Official Coverage (Part One)

First_Class_Fitment_2014_COVER

All year, every year, we work our asses off to keep Canibeat alive and thriving. This is more than just a website; it’s our passion. Our staff of photographers and writers spend countless hours scouring the country for feature vehicles and show coverage while Roy & Cristian spend many late nights delivering merchandise, posts, and coverage to you, our faithful fans.

All of this hard work culminates in one final event each year in October. This isn’t just any event. To most, it may seem like another show or a mark on the calendar for the last day to have your show wheels on before going into “winter mode” but to us, it’s so much more. It’s our Homecoming. Our celebration. Our baby. Our heaving sigh of relief. Our toast to another successful year.

A Homage to Simplicity: Dan Ho’s Porsche 911

Dan_Ho_Porsche_911_COVER

The Story Of A Boy, And His First Love.

The scene is post-World War II Germany, the economy lies in shambles and automakers found difficulty salvaging material to build automobiles. However, during the war, Volkswagen had manufactured roughly 52,000 Beetles (then called the Kubelwagen). Just a short time later in 1952, a Mr. Ferdinand Porsche would use the motor, transmission, and several suspension components from the now-legendary Beetle to create a work of art that would grace the walls and fantasies of petrol-heads everywhere for the next 60 years and beyond.

From its humble beginnings, Porsche has always held true to its a racing pedigree, even through today creating an almost expected heritage of the perfect sports car for the working man. A combination of the luxurious amenities you would find in an Mercedes combined with the gritty aggressive driving habits many MR2 lovers have come to love… Essentially, the perfect automobile.

Stanced_Luxury_Cesar_Cuevas_2008_Mercedes_E350_COVER

Originally this 2008 Mercedes E350 was a gift Cesar purchased for his wife. But from the moment he purchased this ride, he knew there would come a day where he would have it all to himself. That day came faster than he imagined, just a year after the car was purchased he took over the wheel and decided to drive this Benz to a new level of “stanced luxury.” Ideas had been brewing in his head since the purchase, he was quietly plotting and scheming to have a truly unique Benz. Cesar’s quest to make this Benz the pinnacle blend of luxury and stance would soon become a reality.

H2O International 2014 (Ocean City, MD): Coastal Highway Madness

H2Oi2014_COVER

“You know… if you tell someone to ‘light ‘em up,’ and they actually do it, you get in just as much trouble as the person committing the act,” a cop politely explained to me as I sat on a curb, waiting for his fellow camber cops to quit hassling my buddy about his BRZ. The heightened level of police presence kept everyone on their toes with their heads on a swivel, but it did not, by any means, prevent the beloved annual H2oi getaway from being a very, very wild escape from reality.

Random Beat: Rachel Clancy’s BMW E46 M3

Rachel_Clancy_BMW_E46_M3_1

Introducing Rachel Clancy’s BMW E46 M3, a very recent build as of  H2oi 2014. Rachel’s M3 is rolling on BC Extreme Drop coilovers and Work Meister S1s (18×10 and 18×11) rebuilt by VR Wheels in California. “I chose Meisters because they are my favorite wheel. I wanted an aggressive but functional setup so I felt that was a happy medium,” Rachel proudly mentioned when asked about her choice of wheels. Her wheels are white with polished lips and a bit of red to compliment her stunning imola red interior.

When talking about the bags vs coils debate, Rachel tells us “I decided to go with the coils because I would never bag an m3 or sportier type car, it’s just my style.” When she first started the build her vision was a turboed M3, and the necessary mods to get there are next on her list! Keep your eyes out for this build as it progresses and enjoy this mini shoot conducted in downtown Annapolis, Maryland.

Yes, this is Bag Riders’ famous 335i X-Drive, a car that took niche sections of the Internet and social media by storm.

WEKFEST New Jersey 2014: Official Video

This was my third year covering Wekfest’s East Coast event held in Edison, New Jersey. Heading out a little after sunrise to my first car show since coming back from studying abroad in Italy for a month was such an amazing feeling. Passing other enthusiasts on the highway knowing they were going to same show was well welcomed. On top of all that, being able to see all my friends that I hadn’t seen since way before I left or SOWO was the cherry on top. Wekfest always hosts only high caliber cars and this year was no different. There did, however, seem to be less cars than last year and a little too much open space at some points. Team Emotion, as usual, took home most of the awards at the show, well deserved at that too. After the show wrapped up I left with my friend, Harold, who you might know as Dat3voX, to do a photoshoot of his new setup. So look out for that soon. I definitely plan on attending next year’s event as well so I can say, one day, I’ve been to every one.

WEKFEST New Jersey 2014: Official Coverage

WEKFEST_NJ_COVER

Supremacy saturated the New Jersey Expo Center at this year’s Wekfest New Jersey. What could be expected was indeed delivered—a huge room full of exquisite taste. Wekfest never fails to feature the East Coast’s highest caliber builds in order to provide to all perceptions of style. Last year’s show set the bar pretty high for the upcoming years, but the elites of the east were up for the challenge and executed beautifully.

Way2Clean Car Show (South Florida Expo Center): Official Coverage

Way2CleanCarShow_COVER

Way 2 Clean is a new name that made their mark this year at the West Palm Beach Expo Center. The event was organized by its founder, Sam Blackett, with some big name vendors like Vossen and Liberty Walk, and a performance by Florida’s own American rapper, Ace Hood. After advertisements were spread out, many scurried to register for this event. I’m sure many of you reading this are in the Northern states or anywhere else really with less humidity than we have here in Florida. So if there’s an event indoors, we’re all for it! I am definitely excited for the next event hosted by Way 2 Clean.
