The Keys to Persistence: Tyler’s Purpose Built Subaru STI

Tylers_Purpose_Built_Subaru_STI

Anyone who has seriously caught the mod bug knows (all too well) that it takes quite a bit of determination and devotion to sit down and plan a build. Plenty of steps and ideas are taken, scrapped, and re-taken in order to establish so much as a vague idea of the direction you want to go. Do I go for something that’s going to push the boundaries of what people believe is even possible or do I play it close to the chest and pursue a more traditional OEM+ type build? These are all questions we ask ourselves again and again as we scroll through countless forum threads, Google images, and blog posts such as this one. Below, you will find the account of someone just like you and I who sat down, planned out, and executed his dream with pure determination.

Wekfest Los Angeles 2015: The 2,288 Mile Adventure

WekfestLA_Trip_2015_LOZA_Cover

The best part about traveling to car shows in different cities is being able to explore those cities and their culture. We have always been fortunate enough to have the luxury of being shown around by local friends whenever we attend shows all over the country. Trying new places to eat, seeing iconic landmarks, and visiting shops is what it’s all about! This year for our annual Wekfest Los Angeles trip we did a ton of exploring and had our best trip yet while doing Canibeat! This post is dedicated to almost everything we got into while in Southern California. We will have a full separate coverage for the car show itself coming very soon but until then, we hope you enjoy these pictures from our trip!

Euro Tripper 3: Official Coverage

eurotripper_cover

For most of us in the U.S., February is a time of shoveling snow and doing our best to stay warm. Our cars are usually in winter mode or hibernating until spring, either undergoing changes or collecting dust while the snow slowly melts. Paul Barney on the other hand is a busy man in February. For the third year in a row, he has organized Euro Tripper, a European auto show in Ft.Myers, Florida. Though this year brought big changes for Euro Tripper the main focus is still on benefiting Brooke’s Legacy, a local animal rescue.

Hidden Gem: Jimmy’s VIP Inspired Lexus GS400

lexus_cover

I first met Jimmy after the Formula Drift at Irwindale last year. But I had no idea he was guarding a big, beautiful secret. After the event I joined a couple of friends and the guys from Borla Exhaust to go-karting on a slick track because we had to get drifting out of our system. Jimmy met us there, rolling up in his daily NA Miata. While waiting on line for go-karts, my friend, Daniel Covarrubias, kept telling me that I had to see the project car Jimmy had at home. The more Daniel talked about the car the more embarrassed the humble Jimmy became. It was really quite funny. After a while Jimmy agreed to let me see the car next time I was in the area, insisting it was “nothing special.” My interest was piqued and I had to see what my friend Daniel was buzzing about. So a few weeks later I made it to Jimmy’s place.  He seemed very nervous and told me he couldn’t show me the car because he had debeaded one of his tires and didn’t want me to see the car until everything was perfect. I was disappointed but still interested. Three weeks later I was back and this time Jimmy was ready to show me what he had been so embarrassed about. I couldn’t believe how wide the car was and the way it sat was just mind blowing. I loved it. I told him I had to get this car in front of my lens and shoot it as soon as possible. Jimmy said no one had ever featured his car and couldn’t tell if I was joking or not. After some reassurance and a couple weeks time we finally agreed on a time.

The Golden Era: Minh’s Stand Out Honda S2000

s2k-cover

In the early 1960’s, Honda released the S600 Sports Coupe; a predecessor to a car that would today become legendary in it’s own right as one of the purest sports cars ever released by an equally legendary manufacturer. The turn of the millennium was a special time for fans of Honda performance. We were introduced to the first Civic Si to be sold in America featuring a twin-cam engine. The NSX had just arrived with it’s second generation chassis. Limited quantities of the first-ever Type R to be offered in America were now available. Honda’s continued success in the automotive sub-culture and its reemergence in Formula One reflected its dedication to motor sports and producing performance-minded vehicles, if only for a few more years. And as a tribute to this storied history, the Honda S2000 was unleashed upon the masses.

Misfit Delivery – Deron Nicholson’s Laid Out ’59 Metro

1959_International_Harvester_Metro_Bagged_COVER2

Normally when you think of a delivery truck, you think of a big brown UPS truck with the driver hopping out and running to the door like he’s carrying a box of condoms and his girl just texted him that her parents aren’t home. Deron “Sugar” Nicholson’s ’59 International Harvester Metro is far from your everyday UPS truck but it still may require that box of condoms to handle the pure sex appeal that his laid out Metro displays in full spades.
