Offset Kings 2015 Official Coverage (Long Beach, California)

Offset_Kings_2015_COVER

Offset Kings Long Beach is considered to be the first big car show of the year, and it takes  place right in the middle of Formula Drift Long Beach,which is  the first Formula Drift event of the year. Offset Kings also happens to be my favorite shows of the year. You get  a chance to catch up with everyone and see how builds have dramatically progressed and changed since previous years. This is also where a lot of cars make their public debuts and shake up the car community. The location is great, nestled right up against the water, it makes for amazing weather, and of course being right in the middle of Formula Drift theres always something going on. Needless to say I look forward to this show every year, and this year did not disappoint.

Double Header: Super Street Fresh Tokyo Meet / Tokyo Auto Salon 2015

TAS

Last month, on the other side of our precious globe, the annual Tokyo Auto Salon hit the Makuhari Messe in Chiba City’s Mihama-ku ward. As can be expected from one of the top auto shows for modified and tuned vehicles, based in the tuner capital of the world that hosts roots back to the latter part of the ’80s, advocates of each and every sector of Japan’s automotive culture were present in full suit. The show as a whole has continued to gain momentum in regards to popularity as the years continue to commence, making the Tokyo Auto Salon the place to be in January when feasible. Luckily for us, we had eyes not only on the show, but at Super Street’s Fresh Tokyo Meet that give perspective of what goes within the shadows, outside of the spotlights.

Video: First Class Fitment 2014

FCF14_Dowd5extra

As a videographer, it takes more than the cars in attendance to consider a show/event “good”. Year after year, parking lots and convention centers become bland and repetitive. Without variety, what makes something unique?

Organized at Princeton Airport, First Class Fitment is a breath of fresh air. Multiple lots, garages, landing strips, and grass (underappreciated) give the words “car show” new life. It’s more than one of the last chances to see everyone from across the country I’ve come to know and love, instead it’s a chance to experience something so unique to the point that it’s truly like nothing else.

H2O International 2014 (Ocean City, MD): Coastal Highway Madness

H2Oi2014_COVER

“You know… if you tell someone to ‘light ‘em up,’ and they actually do it, you get in just as much trouble as the person committing the act,” a cop politely explained to me as I sat on a curb, waiting for his fellow camber cops to quit hassling my buddy about his BRZ. The heightened level of police presence kept everyone on their toes with their heads on a swivel, but it did not, by any means, prevent the beloved annual H2oi getaway from being a very, very wild escape from reality.

WEKFEST New Jersey 2014: Official Coverage

WEKFEST_NJ_COVER

Supremacy saturated the New Jersey Expo Center at this year’s Wekfest New Jersey. What could be expected was indeed delivered—a huge room full of exquisite taste. Wekfest never fails to feature the East Coast’s highest caliber builds in order to provide to all perceptions of style. Last year’s show set the bar pretty high for the upcoming years, but the elites of the east were up for the challenge and executed beautifully.

Canibeat visits Fatlace: The Paddock (Wekfest San Jose Weekend)

Canibeat_Visits_Paddock_Cover

Last weekend we ventured on a journey out to Northern California for Wekfest San Jose. Usually we travel in large groups, but for this trip it was just Roy and myself (both co-founders of Canibeat for those not familiar). What made this adventure different from past trips is we had absolutely no set plans except for, of course, the Super Bowl of cars shows–Wekfest San Jose. In 2012 Canibeat collaborated with our friends from Fatlace to do a show in Southern California called INFAMOUS. Since then I have personally stayed in close contact with Mark Arcenal just to talk about cars, technology, cycling, our businesses and all things cool. When I had told him we were going to be in town for the show we made plans to grab lunch right after we landed at SFO. Mark had mentioned to me they were taking their Illest Shaved Ice Bus (Volkswagen Bus) to the show and their RC Drift Car track was almost done at the shop and invited us to come check it out. I documented our tour of the Paddock with some traveling photos thrown in there… I hope you enjoy it!

After recently moving from the East Coast to the West I could not resist making it up to Seattle for FD Round Five. Following some haggling and acquiring my first FD media pass, I was incredibly stoked for this particular weekend in Washington.

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.
