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.

We are back at it again with the Fourth Installment of Web Picks! This go-round, I noticed there is an increase in newer event and shoot photography starting to pop up which can only mean that things are slowly starting to pick back up in the scene. We are currently looking for new bloggers and photographers for the site; if you are interested, get in contact with anyone on the current team and lets work together. Hope to see everyone as show season starts to pick up!

Canibeat: Web Picks #3

With the weather getting up to the mid 60s today I can only hope to designate last week’s snowfall as our last. But with the heightened weather temperatures it’s safe to say show season is right around the corner. We’re officially making Spring Fest 5 in Virginia Beach our first show of the season, and I personally can’t for things to pick back up as it gets closer. But for now I am back again with version three of Web Picks. I hope everyone can appreciate the variety. Enjoy!

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.

Another Winter 2014 week is in the books and I am back at it again with another version of Web Picks (#2). My primary goal with these segments is to give you guys a good variety in photo style and cars. Just like last week here are my favorite photos from around Flickr and the Internet.

I personally invite any of these talented photographers below to reach out to me and lets work together on some features! Keep up the good work everyone and as always just a friendly reminder to add your work to the Canibeat Flickr Pool. I am toying around with the idea of maybe opening this segment up to guests. If this interests you feel free to reach out as well.

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!

Baking Soda Armstrong: The White Toyota Aristo from Indonesia

Toyota_Aristo_Indonesia_COVER

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.

The Beast From the East: George Ollie’s 2000 Integra Type R

titlebeast

For a lucky few people in the state of Florida they’ve had the chance to meet George Ollie. Whether it was at a car meet or a grill and chill in Orlando, Mr. Ollie is not one that is soon forgotten about. Typically sporting a black t-shirt, khaki shorts, and a hat George is one that is always down to bring fun to any event. If you know George and his back story then you’d know he hails from Seattle, Washington which sort of contradicts the title but make no mistake George came from the west but he was raised in east. Yes, the misty state of Washington may have been the place where he met his beloved Type R but it was in the Sunshine State where the love affair caught new fire and gave way to the current, aggressive state of this Honda.
