When it comes to German engineering, BMW has become a household name over the years after creating a myriad of iconic chassis. What started as planes, evolved into motorcycles and automobiles during the post war era. The slogan of “The Ultimate Driving Machine”, which BMW adopted over the years has been proven time and time again especially when it comes to the “M” branch of BMW. No matter the decade a BMW comes from, they are known for being clean and elegant but at the same time, when unleashed, they turn into a whole other beast. Nick D’Andria, Kacper Krajewski and Antoine Spignardo have created their own unique takes on three of BMW’s more popular chassis, taking already amazing machines, and making even more breath-taking than before.
There’s something to be said about being able to turn an otherwise unnoticed daily driven grocery getter into a head-turning masterpiece at a car show. Ryan Knittel has achieved just that with his 2004 Subaru WRX wagon. What started off as a simple car purchase with a short list of future modifications, turned into a full-blown build with quite an exhausted list of “goodies”.
Besides all owning slammed Mercedes, Luke Smith, Ashton Lafleur and Junior Sanchez all have one thing in common- From start to finish of our shoot, they seemed to have a better time than anyone I’ve had the pleasure of shooting before. It’s not that most are unhappy or anything, but this bunch keeps it lively in any situation. These cars are not here because of how clean they are, or how much money has gone into building a set of wheels, but because they’re old and f***ing cool.
After a long winter, and countless hours spent tearing the car apart, and putting it all back together again, Scotty Ramos is back with one of our favorite contributing photographers, Sean Dougherty, to bring us the video portion of “…And Beyond (Part II)”.

Lets just say, you won’t be disappointed!
“Aysuus,” the front of Jesse Gallegos’ Nissan S13 says it all. Filipino for “Wow!”, Aysuus is exactly how I felt when I first saw Jesse’s Silvia.
There are few things more iconic to the American aesthetic than the Chevrolet Corvette. Debuted exactly sixty years ago at the GM Motorama auto show, the roadster has held our collective attention for over half a century. Considering the massive amounts of cultural change we’ve seen since the early 50′s, the Corvette serves not only as the poster child for the American automotive obsession, but as a stalwart symbol of consistency. The Corvette has always been a RWD roadster with naturally-aspirated V8 power, and although there have been numerous one-off creations by various tuners that have explored various other configurations, the formula remains the same as the 7th generation model is released onto American roads this year.
This is what surprise looks like. When Bryan Rizzo purchased a bone stock Mitsubishi Evo and brought it home, no one expected it to evolve into what it has become today.
We all hear stories of “those kids down the street” with the car(s) that wake up the whole neighborhood. Well, for the neighbors adjacent to the Taylor family, those kids would be Nick and his twin brother Nate.

When most people think of a car that has “stance” the image that typically comes to mind is a car that sits low to the ground, has ridiculous camber, and stretched tires. In some instances though, that is not the case. For example, take the builds of Eddie and Anthony Herrera, two brothers hailing from West Covina in Los Angeles.
