Big Body Beauty: Austin Morris’s BMW 740il

canibeat_title_watson_austin

I’ll admit it: I have been on a big body kick for a while now, just ask Jeremy Whittle and Austin Morris. In just the last couple of months, I’ve had the pleasure to snap photos of both, thus confirming that the BMW 740il is on top of my big body style list.

Euro Tripper 3: Official Coverage

Canibeat_eurotripper3_title

For most of us in the U.S., February is a time of shoveling snow and doing our best to stay warm. Our cars are usually in winter mode or hibernating until spring, either undergoing changes or collecting dust while the snow slowly melts. Paul Barney on the other hand is a busy man in February. For the third year in a row, he has organized Euro Tripper, a European auto show in Ft.Myers, Florida. Though this year brought big changes for Euro Tripper the main focus is still on benefiting Brooke’s Legacy, a local animal rescue.

WEKFEST MIA 2014 (Miami Beach, FL): Official Coverage

WEKMIA_2014_CIB_COVER

In 2011 Weakest made the decision to launch the Wekfest USA tour. 2014 marked the first time the tour made its way to the sunshine state, Miami specifically. Usually Canibeat vends at both the California and New Jersey shows, but because Miami’s event was so close to the holidays I decided to just personally go down there to check it out. I made the trip to Orlando where I met up with JDM KAM, Nick from Simplyclean, and a few friends and we made the four hour drive from there. The one thing I have noticed about Weakest is no matter where they go, whether it’s a small scene or a big scene, quality cars always come out.

I was in Orlando for Simply Clean exactly a month prior and it was good to be back. A little sunshine and being away from the cold up North is always a blessing. We hope you enjoy our coverage and if you couldn’t make it out this year hopefully our coverages makes you want to in 2015!

The One: Matt Conway’s Volkswagen R32

Matt_Conways_R32_Cover

We all have that one thing in life that we need. It can be in many different areas; the right person, the right shoes, the right food, and for the insane car enthusiast in all of us, the right vehicle. For Matt Conaway, having owned Volkswagens and Audis his whole driving experience he knew one vehicle was right for him, and that was Volkswagen’s pinnacle of the Golf/GTI world–the R32. No other car from Volkswagen captured the true passion of a car owner like their all-wheel drive, VR6 hot hatch. Matt knew he had to have one, and when he finally purchased the one you see below, he knew it was the one for him.

An Evolved Sense of Style: Bassem Elashrafi’s BMW 335xi

Bassem_BMW_335xi_Cover

Bassem’s love affair started like it does for many of us… as he himself describes, “It’s often an infatuation with one particular car that pushes us towards a lifelong love of most things automotive. It could be a car that you spent time around growing up, the first or fourth car of your own, or perhaps even a car you saw only in magazines or on T.V.” Whatever it may be that sparks that fire in us, it becomes something that we can never escape. When Bassem was younger, he says that he used to enjoy drawing cars he’d see on T.V. At the age of 18 he finally saved enough to afford a car of his own, albeit it wasn’t the gorgeous 3-series that graces your screen this moment, the 2007 Nissan Maxima he did purchase was the start of something much bigger than he had realized. After his 21st birthday he grew increasingly tired with the mundaneness he found in the Maxima when, by chance, he happened to stumble across a bimmer forum online. From there on out it was love at first sight.

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.
