Beauty in Simplicity: Derek Lum’s Clean & Static Mazda RX-8

Derek_Lum_Static-Mazda_RX-8_COVER

In the last few years there has been an emphasis across all of the car scenes to “keep it clean,” which has manifested itself in the form of an OEM+ style of modification. Personally it’s a style I appreciate and attempt to emulate in my own vehicles because it’s how many think the vehicles should have looked from the factory. It’s amazing what a drop, wheels, badge-less grill, some OE Euro or JDM parts, a little bit of body work/shaving, and an interior swap will do for a vehicle. Sure there is a place for lip kits, over fenders, wings and custom fabrication, but something about an OEM+ modified car seems so… pure.

The VIP movement isn’t something new to us anymore; they’ve definitely solidified their seats within our culture. With that comes the non-stop deliverance of top-tier style, execution, luxury, and groundbreaking modifications that many have turned out to be quite the sucker for, us included.

Canibeat: Web Picks #2

12399916564_25c14f21d7_k

Another Winter 2014 week is in the books and I am back at it again with another version of Web Picks (#2). My primary goal with these segments is to give you guys a good variety in photo style and cars. Just like last week here are my favorite photos from around Flickr and the Internet.

I personally invite any of these talented photographers below to reach out to me and lets work together on some features! Keep up the good work everyone and as always just a friendly reminder to add your work to the Canibeat Flickr Pool. I am toying around with the idea of maybe opening this segment up to guests. If this interests you feel free to reach out as well.

Baking Soda Armstrong: The White Toyota Aristo from Indonesia

Toyota_Aristo_Indonesia_COVER

When it comes to cars it always hits home when someone gives it their all in a build. Whether they live next door, across the coast, or in this case across the globe in Indonesia, every person that allocates their time in order to put together a show-stopping whip deserves a round of applause. Many of us have been in our garages with busted knuckles and greasy wrenches, but not blowing the doors off of the scene we were attempting to when it came to our vehicles.

David and Yogi’s Mercedes W140 (Video)

About a year ago I met David and Yogi at the StanceWars car show in Bellevue, WA. After including their Benz in my StanceWars 2012 video, they came to me asking to feature their car in a video to show friends and sponsors. Later that year we met up in a warehouse a friend of mine owns and began shooting with the available light. For months the content sat unedited until I finally sat down and figured it had been long enough. I’m glad to show off David and Yogi’s sweet ride, and hope to be doing more features in the future!

WEKEAST: Wekfest “East Coast Elite” 2013 (Edison, New Jersey)

WEKEAST_2013_COVER

A year went by as the east coast prepared for an event that would change the course of our automotive culture and history. The tri-state generation had yet to prove and showcase their knowledge, hard work, and their way of life. When the announcement was made that Weksos USA was hosting a show right in the center of the North East people flooded with excitement and anticipation, eager to finally climb up as underdogs to the west, and come up as kings of the east.

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.

VIP Treatment: Johnee Sou’s Swanky BMW 528i

Johnne_VIP_E60_Cover

Red carpets, suede ropes, flashing cameras, and a table for you and your crew with a bucket of that good stuff on ice. Sounds like a glamorous night at an upscale club downtown, doesn’t it?

Allow me to introduce Johnee Sou’s ’08 BMW 528i, a car that can provide this same glamorous feeling while looking much more appealing in the process than a couch and a candle lit coffee table to place your champagne flute.
