Ultimate Dubs 2014 Coverage (UK)

UD14_Cover

Ultimate Dubs is one of the select few shows we choose to cover each year simply because of the level of pure quality delivered out of Europe and the U.K. UD was held at the Telford International Centre (Nr Birmingham) again this year, which is a perfect location for a typical British day in March. Not this time, though, as the temperature dropped as low as 18 degrees for this year’s season opener. Social media was going a bit crazy with the days leading up to the event, especially since everything is kept top secret up to the last minute to squeeze out any final touches.

A few of the cars you will set your eyes on below where planned months in advance only to be finished with hours to spare. This all makes it very exciting and fresh, and makes my job as a photographer a tad bit harder when the car is crowded with people all day. Patients sure does pay off.

I hope you enjoy the coverage, and expect to see more from the UK this summer!

Bobbin’ Triumphantly – John Daikus’ Triumph Bobber

John_Daikus_Triumph_Bobber_COVER

The motorcycle, for decades, has been the epitome of cool, its Steve McQueen, its Marlon Brando, its Peter Fonda, and its James-Fucking-Dean.  No matter the decade they have always brought that badass factor to any person that rides them. It was never because they were flashy but instead because they flaunted a simplistic beauty and installed the ideal of that ever-desired freedom.

Bobber and Café style bikes truly embrace that simplicity because they have never been about adding parts like their automotive kin but instead they are all about stripping down a bike to the bare necessities. They aren’t about performance but instead about riding with style and those moments of enjoyment on a beautiful day when the wind can flow through your being and help you escape the daily stresses that life can bring us.

Verändern: Christian Quatz’s German Opel Rat Rod

ms-opel_cover

The rat rod scene has always seemed somewhat elusive. The owners stick to themselves for the most part, while still maintaining a sort of “core” that know each other and the cars that they spend their weekends wrenching on. From the outside looking in these gear heads seem to have quite the niche, but the rat rod scene is far broader than I had previously thought. Christian Quatz and his Opel rat rod out of Germany are proof that this scene is alive and well even outside of the United States.

Euro Tripper 2: Ft. Myers Florida

title

While the rest of the United States is being blanketed by snow we here in the Sunshine State truly feel bad for you … kind of. Welcome to Florida, where  you can wear short and tan year-round, and host a killer euro show without worrying about the cold weather and snow. Sure it gets cool down here, but we welcome that as a break. Enough with the weather report, welcome to Euro Tripper 2! February 2014 hosted the second edition of the all euro event in sunny Ft. Myers, Florida. The Germain Arena hosted the show again this year, and if you missed the second edition of this ever growing event it’s safe to say you really missed out.

A Look Back: SEMA Show 2013 (Las Vegas, Nevada)

grib_show_COVER

Once a year members of the automotive industry from all over the world flock to Sin City for a week of business mixed with pleasure. While the sun is up they take to the Las Vegas Convention Center where there’s approximately 52 miles of everything imaginable, isle after isle. Once the sun goes down it’s time for parties and drinks with friends you’ve made over the years. Whether you are buying, selling, or a part of the media SEMA is definitely a breeding ground for innovation, and a preview of what is next for the after market industry and its enthusiasts.

FixxFest 10 (Bradenton, FL): Official Coverage

FixxFest_10_COVER

It feels just like yesterday that my friends and I made the epic drive across the Sunshine state for Fixx Fest 9. Each year the show continues to change and Fixx Fest 10 was no different. Hosted by Uro Tuning the show was once again held at the Bradenton Motor complex in Bradenton, Florida. The Volkswagen and Audi categories were stacked full of Florida’s finest rides ready to enjoy the perfect November weather. All day long spectators could enjoy the show and shine portion of the event or watch some of the fastest VAG cars go down the quarter mile stripe.

Forge Motorsports impressed the crowd with their TT and once again USP had their GLI ripping up the stripe. The crowd has plenty of vendors to choose from including Dubkorps, Uro Tuning, and also I love Driving Slow. The show ended with awards and then a cruise to the Post Card Inn located in St. Petersburg, Florida for an after party. Canibeat was lucky enough to be on hand for the fun and would like to thank Uro Tuning for the great time! We hope you enjoy our coverage.

A Look Back: First Class Fitment 2013

FCF13_COVER2

Another year, another First Class Fitment gone by. We spend an entire year looking forward to a day that seems to go by faster than every other day of the year and this year was no different. Before sunrise to after sunset, the staff works hard at Princeton Airport for arguably one of the most unique, quality events on the show calendar. Sure, we may be a little biased about our own show but we keep trying to raise the bar each and every year and continue to see attendance grow and some of the best vehicles from across the country come through our gates.

Perceptive Vision: Teddy’s 1996 Honda Civic EK (Video)

Honda’s these days are a dime a dozen. Yet the differences, and availabilities (or lack thereof) in the States, has left many owners with a few options; if a certain model wasn’t offered in the country, they could either import one, or transform an existing trim level and bring it up to the desired specs. In Teddy’s case, the latter was chosen. With a passion for Honda and their vast array of interchangeable parts, it wasn’t long before Teddy’s Civic began to take shape. With it’s fair share of rare parts and a 1.8L pushing just over 220whp, Teddy explains to us that at this phase in the car’s build, he couldn’t be any happier.

Street Sweepin’ Scooby: Brenden Ramos’ Static WRX

Brenden_WRX-cover

Brenden Ramos always had a thing for cars growing up. He was surrounded with Euros in his early teens due to the fact that his Dad drove an E36 M3 that originally sparked Brenden’s interest in performance. He always wanted something quick and aggressive, yet clean and refined at the same time without having to go overboard with cosmetic additions. One day his Dad brought home an E92 of the same model as its predecessor and Brenden knew that going fast was right up his alley.

When Zombies Walk the Earth: Matt Patroni’s Simplistically Beautiful BMW 2002 (Video)

The BMW 2002 is elementary yet stunning, a design that breathed life back into the struggling Bavarian Automaker which eventually led to ever-popular 3 Series. It’s a chassis that has also granted freedom to the car enthusiast that have owned them for over four decades. Concourse, Motorsports and even the Stance communities have become fond of this surprisingly nimble and stimulating chassis when choosing a project for their next build no matter its eventual purpose.
