BlockstarCars Garage & Canibeat Pop-Up Shop GRAND OPENING (Springfield, VA)

BS_CIB_GO_Cover

Saturday, July 14 2014 was a very special day for all of us at BlockstarCars and Canibeat. BlockstarCars opened up their brand new premier automotive boutique to the public, and with that also came the opening of the one and only Canibeat pop-up shop which grants customers access to purchase exclusive Canibeat merchandise while they indulge on Blockstars’ hospitality and relax until services are completed on their vehicles. Our friends at ISS Forged, Tuner Evolution, and Liberty VIP came out to kick it and enjoy the dope cars, live music, and good food that were a necessity at the grand opening. All-in-all… locals support locals, and roots run deep with support for the fellow enthusiast catering to others, especially to those enabling goals and aspirations of others in our community. If you’re remotely close to the Washington Metropolitan area and need anything done, head to Blockstar Cars. You and your ride will be thoroughly taken care of.

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.

Wrong Fitment Fest 2 (Oceanside, CA): Official Coverage

WrongFitmentFest2_COVER

Last year Wrong Fitment Crew threw its first annual “Wrong Fitment Fest.” They held this event as a big meet instead of an official show, just a big hang out for everyone who wanted to come. This meet is about good times, good hangs, checking out some awesome cars, catching up with a bunch of good friends, and of course making new friends. Wrong Fitment Fest takes place in beautiful Oceanside, California, which was a nice break from the one hundred plus temperatures most of us are use to in the Valley.

WEKFEST LA 2014 (Long Beach, CA): Official Video

A warm 80 degrees and an offshore breeze is a great combination for a car show. Wekfest LA kicks off the year with yet again another awesome show at the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California, with Canibeat posted up right in the middle of all the madness. This year the theme was RED. Red ruckus, Red DC2 (Integra) and a Red FRS 86. With the Long Beach skyline in the background you couldn’t have asked for a better backdrop. This year we tried to enjoy the show a little more so we talked and met with a lot more people. Surprisingly this year Wekfest LA gave us all a little bit more room to breathe. Giving us quality over quantity, you were able to walk around more and set up your shot for the perfect Instagram post.

Video: Formula Drift Round 3: Miami Heat

On May 31, Formula Drift returned to Florida for Round 3: Miami Heat. This was Formula Drift’s third visit to Florida, but this time in a new location. In 2012 and 2013, Palm Beach International Raceway hosted the series, but 2014 brought Round 3 to Homestead-Miami Speedway. This facility hosts NASCAR, IndyCar, Grand Am, and now the Formula Drift Series in an expansive multi-track venue. The event utilized the infield road course starting at turn 2 and completing each run at turn 5. Vaughn Gittin Jr. earned victory over Chris Forsberg in the final round. This was Gittin’s second win in a row after taking home the victory at Round 2: Road Atlanta. Finishing third behind Gittin and Forsberg was Kenny Moen. This event was a fresh breath for the increasingly large amount of fans and a new challenge for the lineup of drivers. While learning the new track, teams and drivers practiced and adapted to the unfamiliar setup. The Saturday competition was strong and the energy was high. Florida’s heat persisted all day, but the threat of rain held off and the skies remained clear and the track stayed dry. Please enjoy our video coverage from Round 3: Miami Heat.

Ultimately, however, Wekfest is all about enjoying the day, hanging out with friends, gazing on the completed builds, and enjoying the amazing weather right in beautiful Long Beach, California.

Georgia on my Mind: Southern Wörthersee 2014 Official Coverage (Part 2)

SOWO_2014_Part2_COVER

SOWO, only a one year until you return and I can once again visit the sleepy town of Helen, GA. This is the sixth year I have had the chance to attend the event and without a doubt I can easily say this is my favorite show hands down. There are a lot of great shows out there but nothing like SOWO. The atmosphere, the town, and even the people that come together all make this event truly special. Each year dozens of people including two men, Matt Bounds and Chris Cooley, dedicate hundreds of hours into making this event happen but each year it becomes a little more challenging. We need to remember despite the fun we have to keep it respectful and not ruin this happy little town by going too over the top.

SOWO offers a lot for the car enthusiast in us all. From mini-meets all over town to photo shoots, mountain drives, and of course the main show, there is something for everyone to enjoy. For me, though, the chance to escape the work flow, experience a German themed town full of German cars, and get a hold of some German beer is all I really need. Starting the Thursday prior to show day you can cruise the strip and enjoy seeing all the awesome cars roll up and down and have a chance to meet up with friends from all over the country. Personally it was great to meet up with the rest of the Canibeat staff and also to have Mr. Andy Carter take some great shots. Enjoy  part two of our SOWO coverage! Get ready #SOWOPREP2015 starts now!
