Society sees car enthusiasts as misfits and trouble-makers as they constantly smear our community due to street racing, drifting on public roads and car meets that get out of hand. When you think that they would want enthusiasts to seek out safely sanctioned events on closed tracks they have instead worked to close our sanctuaries, and some have even been torn down in place of more “community beneficial” facilities slowly trying to kill our beloved car community.
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.
From time to time I like to check out The Canibeat Flickr Group to see what photographers are up to and producing. Here are a few of my current favorite picks in a segment I like to call Around The Web… enjoy!
Tupac Shakur, in a 1996 interview with San Francisco’s KMEL, responded to a question regarding the balance of his challenges and successes with the declaration, “I’m a reflection of my community”. Community is a topic that gets thrown around a lot nowadays, as many of us find ourselves isolated in our online lives, trying to find real connections amongst hundreds of thousands of Facebook friends and Instagram followers.

Right off the bat it’s pretty plain to see that Jaycee took his once stock Subaru and transformed it into something special. In most cases patience is key, and Jaycee’s Subaru is no exception. Building a car for himself and nobody else, Mr. Ceron shows us how to combine old school flavor with new school styling.
The Subaru Impreza has been around since the early ‘90s. Sporting its fair share of facelifts and trim packages, the newest version of Impreza has been an enthusiast favorite with its wider front and rear wings which provide for some aggressive wheel setups. Waiting almost eight months for his wheels to arrive, Jaycee received multiple calls from VR Wheels out of Los Angeles. while being given other options since the wait was much longer than anticipated. Jaycee stuck to his guns and the wait was well worth it. His choice to go with the timeless BBS RS weave is simply superb. A custom 18”x10” setup with slant lips and low offsets you just cannot get better fitment than this, wow!

Leonardo Da Vinci. Albert Einstein. Benjamin Franklin. What do these men have in common? They were all pioneers in their own respective fields (and sometimes outside of their comfort zone). The world was fascinated by their discoveries, inventions, and theories, all of which were basically new concepts at their respective times. It generated excitement and inspired people after them to build on what they had done push the limits even farther.
Subaru’s rich automotive history can be traced back to two triumphs in the automotive world; their prevalence in WRC, and their all wheel drive system introduced back in 1972. Now, it was inevitable that owners of these cars would begin to step out of the comfort zone that was “rally”, and begin to adopt the trending styles of modification. For Khalid and his STI, it took a bit of warming up to become what it is today. The first 2 years of ownership saw minimal modification; simple bolt-ons and small aesthetic tweaks began an all too familiar path that spirals us enthusiasts into a full-blown project car.
Merry Christmas! This week we bring you Sammy Alarcon’s 2008 Honda Civic Si, shot by Mark Anthony.

When it comes to limited production or classic cars some, which quickly get labeled as “purists”, have ideals of just who should be lucky enough to be the next owner of their pride and joy. They judge every word and action that the potential buyer produces and more critically then a hiring manager for a job. As a buyer, sometimes we try to tell these sellers what they want to hear as they hold the keys to our dream cars, ones that you hunt for months for. Guys like Kacper Krajewski know this strategic battle all too well after he went hunting for the perfect BMW M Coupe.
I think it’s safe to say that in all car scenes across the globe there is always that one particular build that everyone cannot wait to see come out of the garage. When the winter months begin to wane, projects begin to come out of hiding. For the past couple of years there has always been one particular car that I feverishly wait for, one that never fails to disappoint, and one that has seen quite a few changes since being put away last fall.
