BBG Stateside: Mike Vo’s Lexus GS300

Most people claim that growing up sucks, and the simple fact that nothing can be done about it can be quite frustrating. Albeit the claims are true, but it’s not bad when you keep your passions within the current instead of letting them fade like a trend. Especially when you have a family and a wife that supports your lifestyle and work it’s that much easier to over come any type of growing pain.

A While in the Works: Jerome Cruz’s MK3 Jetta

TITLES

The first time Jerome Cruz’s Volkswagen Jetta caught my attention was over two years ago. For the following years I’d see it at shows and in passing, but never had the ability to set up a full shoot. There was always something about this build that caught my attention, though, whether that be the unique paint or specialty euro parts… it’s tough to point out a favorite part.

Sat Down: Austin Morris’s Static Passat

title_satdown

While shooting Austin Morris’s Ruckus a couple months ago he brought up his Passat project that was in the works. The plans he had in mind sounded extensive and daunting, but after long nights in the garage and some meticulous planning Austin Morris finally revealed his latest creation, and I’ll be honest… I didn’t quite expect this.

Preservation of Beauty: Ryan Romaine’s Timeless Datsun 610 Bluebird-U SSS-E

Ryan_Romaine_Datsun610_COVER

Being a vintage car owner myself, builds that pop up involving anything pre-80s always manage to grab my attention. When Cristian first showed me pictures of Ryan’s Datsun I was blown away because for one it was a chassis that you rarely see, but also that this was a car that had been preserved with exquisite precision. The model that spans across your screen is a 1974 Datsun 610 Bluebird-U SSS-E which Ryan and his wife have carefully nurtured back to its showroom condition and have also extensively documented this unique piece of vintage car history.

Take Your Pick: Lucas Perez’s JDM Duo

Lucas_Perez_JDM_Duo_COVER

For many of us of the Millennial generation, our fascination with JDM automobile culture began with Polyphony Digital’s Gran Turismo series for the Sony Playstation. My first exposure to the game was the third installment, and I remember first seeing the red Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT Apex and having no doubt that it would be my starter car, owing much to the unapologetic 80′s styling cues . As we dived deeper in the game, our eyes were opened to dozens of cars whose manufacturers might have been familiar, but only as modes of reliable, safe, vanilla transportation.  Our parents, born into the era of the great American muscle car, remembered the Mustang and Camaro as the performance beasts that they were, but many had opted for more reliable Odysseys, Siennas, Accords and Camrys as their daily transportation and kid-haulers.  While the Japanese sports cars were far from unknown, their existence did not penetrate into the American consciousness the way that domestic muscle cars and Italian supercars had throughout the 80′s and 90′s.  And yet, our culture finds itself in the middle of an explosion of vintage JDM boom.

Verändern: Christian Quatz’s German Opel Rat Rod

ms-opel_cover

The rat rod scene has always seemed somewhat elusive. The owners stick to themselves for the most part, while still maintaining a sort of “core” that know each other and the cars that they spend their weekends wrenching on. From the outside looking in these gear heads seem to have quite the niche, but the rat rod scene is far broader than I had previously thought. Christian Quatz and his Opel rat rod out of Germany are proof that this scene is alive and well even outside of the United States.

Critical Acclaim: Jeremy Hedin’s Volkswagen CC R-Line

wtk_cc_cover1

In the Volkswagen and European car scene it’s pretty common to see the typical Golfs and Jettas getting all the attention and aftermarket support from manufacturers. It’s when cars such as the lesser common Volkswagen family members hit the scene in such a radical way that really makes peoples heads turn. Jeremy’s claim to fame resides in the sneaker community with his wild array of shoes, and it’s only fitting that his car makes a bold statement as well. His Volkswagen CC R-Line has taken grasp of our attention and will not let go, this thing is a stunner!

Compare, Contrast: Jaycee Ceron’s Subaru Impreza WRX

jc_subaru_cover

Right off the bat it’s pretty plain to see that Jaycee took his once stock Subaru and transformed it into something special. In most cases patience is key, and Jaycee’s Subaru is no exception. Building a car for himself and nobody else, Mr. Ceron shows us how to combine old school flavor with new school styling.

The Subaru Impreza has been around since the early ‘90s. Sporting its fair share of facelifts and trim packages, the newest version of Impreza has been an enthusiast favorite with its wider front and rear wings which provide for some aggressive wheel setups. Waiting almost eight months for his wheels to arrive, Jaycee received multiple calls from VR Wheels out of Los Angeles. while being given other options since the wait was much longer than anticipated. Jaycee stuck to his guns and the wait was well worth it. His choice to go with the timeless BBS RS weave is simply superb. A custom 18”x10” setup with slant lips and low offsets you just cannot get better fitment than this, wow!
