Third Time’s A Charm: Alexx K’s Stunning Hyundai Genesis Coupe

Alexx_K_Genesis_Coupe_COVER

There are throngs of gearheads out there addicted to a make; those who would consider themselves “brand loyal” with an exclusive taste for Honda, Volkswagen, Ford, etc. Sure, they may be car enthusiasts who have an appreciation for all things automotive but they reserve their funds and driveways for the one make they love. Going a step further, there are those who are addicted to a specific model of a specific make and find themselves with multiple vehicles of the same model over the course of their lives or even at the same time. We all know that guy who wouldn’t even consider life without an M3 or Integra in the garage (running or not). You know, the people who have an EK hatch or Mustang for the track, another for daily driving, one more that’s “destined for greatness”, and another on jack-stands behind the garage as a parts donor. Whether it is multiple generations of the same model or just one specific chassis, these guys have a deep, unbreakable bond with their steed of choice.

On the Rocs: Matt Perkins’s Smooth Scirocco (Video)

Matt’s pride and joy. A lot of time and thought was invested into every little addition made to this elegant MKIII VW Scirocco, especially the bright blue Bentley seats and matching head liner. During the shoot Matt provided some enlightenment by comparing his visualization process for the Scirocco to the construction of a well planned video. Through certain angles the unique lines of the Scirocco become easily admirable. I hope this film provokes you to agree.

Overlooked: Michael Wood’s 2008 VW GTI

woody_GTI_COVER

Very few things really get to me anymore. I typically like to kick back and have a good time, especially when I attend a car get together. I have found though, as I get a little older and start to appreciate the work put into a car that one thing really bugs me. When scrolling through a car blog it is easy to see a car that has the set it and forget it rule done; the owner slapped a set of coil overs on the car and threw some wheels on and BOOM! Instant fame, instant feature and plastered all over the internet. Well in this case, Michael Wood has seemingly been overlooked. Canibeat decided that this was not going to happen any long, so without further adieu here is Mr. Wood’s beautiful GTI.

Black Chariot: Christine Siepka’s ’78 Datsun 280z

ZAN_280-cover

When it comes to building a car; actually putting some blood, sweat and tears into it, cars like Christine’s 280z really hit home. This Datsun is far beyond a simple drop and some fitted wheels. Can you say “Two and a half years in the making” and “work in progress”? Well, that’s exactly how Christine described this gorgeous piece of automotive legendry. With the Z being over 30 years old, starting from ground zero is an understatement; let’s try 6 feet under.

Shake & Bake: Rickyy Bobby’s Honda Civic EM2

Ricky_Bobby_EM2_COVER

Driving a slammed car daily isn’t something that’s done easily. It is a sacrifice that one must accept at a particular point in their car’s life. It could be when you first buy your car and know that it’s going to end up on the ground, or that first time you buy your coilovers, or even the day you just decide you no longer want any functionality left in your car. For Rickyy Bobby it started when he first bought his car, and it’s evident when seeing the history of  cars he’s owned. Driving around with Rickyy I witnessed a radically different geography of the streets of Toronto, where a map was obsolete simply because maps do not describe the condition of the roads ahead. Rickyy, however, has a map in his head of which routes he has to take to navigate his car to his destination, or which roads no longer exist to him simply because his static chassis is millimeters from the ground. With harsh conditions all winter and construction happening nonstop during summer to fix the damaged roads this isn’t an easy task.

Law of Motion: Kirk Curran’s ’05 Subaru STI

Newton’s first law of motion states that an object in motion stays in motion, unless acted upon by an outside force. When Kirk first acquired his STI, the gears quickly began to turn, and have yet to be stopped. This STI has gone through it’s fair share of phases, and Kirk’s current look is sure to please.

Endless Possibilities: Raymund Young’s VIP Lexus GS430

Raymund_Young_VIP_Lexus_GS430_COVER

With the growing popularity of the VIP style scene in North America every enthusiast seems to try to push the envelope with more force than the next guy when it comes to modifying their car. What once started as simply working with a big body sedan with wheels and a drop to emulate the Yakuza mobsters’ ride of choice has now turned into an ever growing and ever changing canvas to work from with endless possibilities. Raymund Young at Royal Flush sculpted his masterpiece with detail that would make Picasso proud.
