Water by the Bridge 2015 Official Coverage (Louisville, KY)

WBTB_2015_Canibeat_Cover

Since Canibeat started in 2009, there are always certain shows we make a top priority to cover each year. Water by the Bridge has been on that list for the last few years for us but has been a must-attend show for those in or around the Midwest and southern parts of the country for much longer. It’s so much more than a show, however; it’s a goal and a deadline for people to have their winter projects finished. Winter can be brutal but Water By The Bridge is always a beacon of hope that show season is upon us.

Water by the Bridge, hosted by Grossman Tuning, is held in downtown Louisville at Waterfront Park and is the official opener for the season in this part of the country. We hope you enjoy our coverage this year and stay tuned for more from around the country for 2015!

Euro Tripper 3: Official Coverage

eurotripper_cover

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.

Double Header: Super Street Fresh Tokyo Meet / Tokyo Auto Salon 2015

TAS

Last month, on the other side of our precious globe, the annual Tokyo Auto Salon hit the Makuhari Messe in Chiba City’s Mihama-ku ward. As can be expected from one of the top auto shows for modified and tuned vehicles, based in the tuner capital of the world that hosts roots back to the latter part of the ’80s, advocates of each and every sector of Japan’s automotive culture were present in full suit. The show as a whole has continued to gain momentum in regards to popularity as the years continue to commence, making the Tokyo Auto Salon the place to be in January when feasible. Luckily for us, we had eyes not only on the show, but at Super Street’s Fresh Tokyo Meet that give perspective of what goes within the shadows, outside of the spotlights.

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

wekfest

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!

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.

Video: First Class Fitment 2014

FCF14_Dowd5extra

As a videographer, it takes more than the cars in attendance to consider a show/event “good”. Year after year, parking lots and convention centers become bland and repetitive. Without variety, what makes something unique?

Organized at Princeton Airport, First Class Fitment is a breath of fresh air. Multiple lots, garages, landing strips, and grass (underappreciated) give the words “car show” new life. It’s more than one of the last chances to see everyone from across the country I’ve come to know and love, instead it’s a chance to experience something so unique to the point that it’s truly like nothing else.
