Stand Out Style: Josh LaPointe’s 2005 Nissan 350z Roadster

IMG_5030

We can all reminisce about our dream cars from the fringe of adolescence. Whether it be an old Porsche 911, or a Chevy Camaro, we have all had visions of one day owning the car we put in the highest of regards. Josh LaPointe, being an avid Nissan enthusiast, was forced to decide whether to invest in a motor rebuild after an unfortunate boost spike on his 200SX SE-R project, or move on and acquire the dream car of his high school years, a Nissan 350z.

H2o International 2013 (Ocean City, Maryland): Official Photo Coverage (Part 2)

h2oi_2013_KREILING_Cover

H2Oi is so much more than a car show and over the years, it has developed more and more facets and dimensions to where it’s hardly even a show anymore; it’s THE social event of the year.

Trends are both made and broken in Ocean City. Like a runway at a Paris Fashion Show, Coastal Highway becomes the stage where the latest and greatest trends and ideas are put on display. As the week progresses, one of your favorite looks or wheels can become one of your least favorite after seeing so many of the same sets of wheels or themes cruising up and down the strip. At the same time, you can develop a love for a look or theme that you never thought of before or didn’t think you’d like until it’s on display in front of you.

From “played” to “revolutionary”, The Strip is a magical place where heroes and villains are made or broken and where trends, wheels, and ideas go to rise in popularity or find their final resting place. This is true for any and all makes and models as you see the Euro and JDM scenes swapping ideas and perfecting them on similar chassis with different badges. It’s not out of the ordinary to see the same set of wheels ten times in one day with ten different finishes.

If there’s one thing H2Oi teaches you, it’s this: keep an open mind, open eyes, and current license, insurance and registration…

H2o International 2013 (Ocean City, MD): Official Video #2

I know I’m not alone when I share the belief that cars have brought strangers together and turned them into the best of friends. There’s just something about sharing a passion and lifestyle with people that truly understand. As a community, we dive into this lifestyle and we build so much anticipation to get even more of it. H2Oi is a beautiful, chaotic hub of immersion and anxious anticipation. Created around the Volkswagen/Audi scene and now attracting even more enthusiasts, H2Oi sweeps into Ocean City every year almost overnight and provides us a world of automotive expression. The whole experience at H2Oi is unreal as slammed cars drive by in every direction, every second. The community takes over the city’s streets and we come together in parking lots, hotels, condos, beaches, and restuarants. It’s exciting to be a part of this immersion. Along with the insanity and constant burnouts, we also get a chance to cruise, relax, and enjoy the getaway. The time spent at H2Oi feels so good because we really look forward to it every year. We utilize social media to hype it up and we see everyone on Instagram talking about it. H2Oi is such a popular event because the craziness runs wild in the streets, but the passion and friendship can be felt everywhere. The timeless memories can never be forgotten, and I’m honored I can capture such a unique staple in the automotive world with this video.

H2o International 2013 (Ocean City, MD): Official Video #1

The level of H2O hype continues to shatter all previous years as each new September rolls around. Along with that hype, comes preparation. All of you who frequent Instagram have witnessed the phenomenon of “#h20prep”. If you were curious enough to search that hash tag in the weeks counting down to h2o this year, you would have seen people literally building cars. Not just swapping wheels or getting last minute coilovers on, but bodywork, interiors, full re-sprays, and shaving bays. This continued all the way up to mere days before departure for Ocean city. The amount of work that people attempted to complete (and in most cases completed), in the weeks before H2O is mind blowing. With that being said, I felt it was only appropriate to start off this year’s video with a tribute to the amount of work all of you performed, with the vision of your completed project making its appearance on Coastal Highway. I had the privilege of arriving on Tuesday and watching the madness unfold as cars poured into Ocean City. I sat in a lawn chair by the 62nd street Bridge one day late in the week to watch cars arriving. The expressions on people’s faces as they roll onto the strip for the first time is priceless, we all know that feeling. With the Cars and Cameras opening party, air affair, and a hundred other themed meets, there was never a dull moment at H2O. Only 51 more weeks until next year.

H2o International 2013 (Ocean City, Maryland): Official Photo Coverage (Part 1)

h2oi_2013_SEMPEK_Cover

If you thought Christmas was “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year”, someone lied to you; they’ve never been to Ocean City, Maryland during the last weekend of September.

H2Oi has all the ingredients to make the perfect weekend: an amazing venue with a beach, a strip to cruise, large parking lots to congregate, and hundreds upon hundreds of cars toting around thousands of enthusiasts to the tune of VR6 exhaust notes, air ride systems dumping their pressurized contents, and the smell of burning rubber. Ingredients so perfect, in fact, that many people have started showing up earlier and earlier in the week and making a full, week-long vacation out of it (much like the Europeans do with Worthersee Treffen in Austria). It’s the most anticipated show of the year in the Euro community with people building cars for months (and sometimes years) with THIS show as their deadline.

White Stallion: Mallory VanRiper’s 2000 Nissan Skyline GT-T

Mallory_IM_cover

As if a Nissan Skyline wasn’t a rare enough site, a woman opening the driver’s side door has got to be about as rare as getting struck by lighting….twice! Hailing from Portland, Oregon, Mallory and her 2000 Nissan Skyline GT-T definitely cause most onlookers to do a double take.

Round Two: Karl Perez’s Honda S2000

Sam Ip and Karl Johnston are at it again and this time, Karl’s S2000 is sporting a fresh new color as well as a new set of shoes. When Karl first looked into switching up the color of his car, the ever-so-famous, Laguna Seca Blue, was on the top of the list. That is, until he saw this beautiful RWB Porsche blue! Karl said, “IF the color is changing, so are the wheels!” And that they did, to a staggered set of Work VS-XX’s; 18″x9.5″ in the front, and 18″x10.5″ in the rear! Sam Ip hooked us up with a beautiful video of Karl’s refreshed S2000 and we couldn’t be more excited, check it out!

Dialed In: Jose Guadalupe Ayala’s Type-S swapped RSX

JoseRSX19_cover

Sometimes, it takes more than just buying parts and slapping them on the car to make things work out. More often than not, some unexpected hurdles have to be overcome. For Jose, making things work for his RSX was more than just simply bolting things on, but after some trial and error, Jose’s Acura transformed from a boring base model, to a stunning Type S with attitude.
