It’s said that if you want something bad enough you’ll get it, that the law of attraction will work in mysterious ways ultimately granting you your wish if you can fork up the patience. I believe this to be quite a plausible factor of life, and for this particular 24-year-old Windy City native he finally got what he had been dreaming about for so many years.

Slammed Society: Offset Kings kicks off the beginning of show season for most in Southern California, and what better way to kick off the show season than a car show combined with Formula Drift. Long Beach, California is the first stop on the Slammed Society schedule along with Formula Drift, and this location has always been a great time through out the years. This is where you get to see all the cars that have undergone huge changes throughout the winter months for the first time, and after walking around the show for a while what better way to take a break than taking a seat and watching a little Formula Drift live.

Society sees car enthusiasts as misfits and trouble-makers as they constantly smear our community due to street racing, drifting on public roads and car meets that get out of hand. When you think that they would want enthusiasts to seek out safely sanctioned events on closed tracks they have instead worked to close our sanctuaries, and some have even been torn down in place of more “community beneficial” facilities slowly trying to kill our beloved car community.
Don’t rule Kansas out when it comes to cars. Bradley Toon’s one of a kind Celica is just one of many cars putting the Midwest out there at the moment. Enjoy this video by Brandon Kahl.
The VIP movement isn’t something new to us anymore; they’ve definitely solidified their seats within our culture. With that comes the non-stop deliverance of top-tier style, execution, luxury, and groundbreaking modifications that many have turned out to be quite the sucker for, us included.

When it comes to cars it always hits home when someone gives it their all in a build. Whether they live next door, across the coast, or in this case across the globe in Indonesia, every person that allocates their time in order to put together a show-stopping whip deserves a round of applause. Many of us have been in our garages with busted knuckles and greasy wrenches, but not blowing the doors off of the scene we were attempting to when it came to our vehicles.

Leonardo Da Vinci. Albert Einstein. Benjamin Franklin. What do these men have in common? They were all pioneers in their own respective fields (and sometimes outside of their comfort zone). The world was fascinated by their discoveries, inventions, and theories, all of which were basically new concepts at their respective times. It generated excitement and inspired people after them to build on what they had done push the limits even farther.
Subaru’s rich automotive history can be traced back to two triumphs in the automotive world; their prevalence in WRC, and their all wheel drive system introduced back in 1972. Now, it was inevitable that owners of these cars would begin to step out of the comfort zone that was “rally”, and begin to adopt the trending styles of modification. For Khalid and his STI, it took a bit of warming up to become what it is today. The first 2 years of ownership saw minimal modification; simple bolt-ons and small aesthetic tweaks began an all too familiar path that spirals us enthusiasts into a full-blown project car.

Hyundai has always been considered, with lack of better words, an underdog in the car scene. The heavy hitters in the European and Japanese game have solidified their position at the top. Lately we’re beginning to see more builds involving cars South of the DMZ, with Hyundai and Kia trying to give the top dogs a run for their money. These manufacturers have been raising the bar with their production vehicles each and every year, and with the few models that they produce there are people that have really begun to take interest in tuning them for both form and function.
Let’s face it the car scene as a whole utilizes and relies heavily on the Internet for just about anything and everything. Whether you’re looking up prices for parts, checking out the latest builds, or just keeping in contact with your friends we’re a well-connected community because of the Internet. If there is any one area that, for the most part, stays away from the Internet it’d be safe to say it’s Texas. Every year the Lone Star State comes out hard, revealing builds that have been kept under the radar to be premiered at the state’s biggest and most anticipated event; WEKFEST Texas. Just like previous years all Texans were patiently awaiting the announcement of this year’s date and location. Last year WEKFEST was hosted in Austin, and this year in Houston at the George R. Brown Convention Center. With that said here’s a look back at WEKFEST Texas 2013… enjoy! See you guys in February for WEKFEST Hawaii.
