Euro Tripper 3: Official Coverage

Canibeat_eurotripper3_title

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

jimmy_canibeat_18

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

Minhs_Honda_S2000_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.

Against The Grain: Robert Sia’s Aimgain Scion FRS

Robert_Sia-Aimgain_Scion_FRS_COVER

Robert Sia’s FRS made quite a splash when it first hit the scene. It debuted on Instagram, and a roller on the freeway of Robert’s car was enough to take the car scene by storm. Up until then no one had really seen the Aimgain kit on an FRS since FRS scene was dominated mainly by Rocket Bunny kits, but people were in for quite a treat.

Random Beat: Gettin’ Fit

shep-h20_CIB

Amongst the severe accounts of post-H2o International depression many are enduring on the East Coast, many are going through the countless photographs they captured during their long-awaited getaway to Ocean City, Maryland. Yes, H2oi has been primarily a euro show, but recent years have let H2oi, like the other nationally recognized shows, to become blended with vehicles from different makes. Many are disgruntled, others, including myself, appreciate it. In light of the other makes and quality builds that attended this year’s H20i getaway, we present Thomas Shepherd’s bagged and wrapped 2010 Mugen Fit shot at a location apart from the typical oceanfront photographs that flood Instagram feeds during the last weekend of September. Hiding from the beloved camber cops can lead to some pretty unique locations. Keep an eye out for our official H2o International coverage coming soon!

A Community United: The 4uDrew Foundation’s S15 Silvia

The automotive community can arguably be called one of the most tightly knit groups of people. As enthusiasts, we are like family. Yes, we have our disagreements and quarrels, but at the end of the day we all have one thing in common; passion.

Bloodstained Ambition: Jose Ramos’ Widebody 350z

Jose_Ramos_Widebody_350z_COVER

I first spotted Jose’s 350z at Wekfest Long Beach earlier this year and it immediately caught my eye. The uniqueness of the build, the color, and how damn wide it was! I immediately started to follow Jose’s build very closely, admiring each and every detail put into it to make it truly one of a kind. After finding out Jose was a native of Southern California I had to ask him if he would give me the opportunity to shoot his build, and Jose couldn’t have been more humble in accepting.
