The NSX. The Crown Jewel when it comes to production performance in the Honda community. Sam Ip Media was lucky enough to catch Michael Mao’s Super Street Featured Acura NSX carving up the mountains recently. So sit back, turn the volume up and take in the intoxicating sound of a legend that has been lost to a world of bottom-lines and environmentalists.
Make sure to follow Canibeat.com to catch the upcoming photo feature on this stunning beauty.
The second annual European automotive show, Eurohangar, was once again a hit. Hosted during the last weekend in June in Holland, Michigan, the show’s location was beautiful. We started out at the pre-meet on Friday night then ended at the show on Saturday. If you missed out this year, be sure to look into going next year! Enjoy our video event coverage by Ethan Watson & Aaron Meeuwsen!
I flew down to LA and spent the weekend with my buddy Matthew Ramos from Panda Feet Productions. It was great getting to chill with some of the Canibeat crew again and checking out the LA area together. Matthew and I double teamed each car with 5Dmk2s and a variety of lenses and tools. We had a great time and can’t wait for the next. Enjoy! – Loren
Southern California photographer and videographer Sam Ipman recently just wrapped up a photoshoot with Daniel Leung’s static and daily driven Subaru WRX STI Hatchback. The two met up before hand to quickly plan the video and how things were going to go down and then they hit the streets of Los Angeles. Sam told us that “Daniel is a super chill guy from LA building his car with such a deep passion.” Enjoy this teaser video and expect the full photo feature and story to release soon.
After three successful years at Downsview Park, it was time for Fitted to move to a larger location at the Brampton Fairgrounds. This epic event was held on Saturday May 25, 2013 and put on by the people from Stretch & Poke. We hope you guys enjoy the official Canibeat Fitted Showcase 2013 video!
After being started as a small shop get together in 2005 by Grossman Tuning, Water by the Bridge 2009 marked the progress of the event as a whole. Wanting the show to be a place for Euro enthusiasts of all types, Grossman started to set up the show. After getting approval for one of the sickest places around, Water by the Bridge was set to be held at the gorgeous Waterfront Park in Louisville, Ky. Each year, more people came. In 2012, about 200-250 cars showed up, but that’s nothing close to what 2013 had to offer. Apparently word had gotten out; Water by the Bridge was the place to be in 2013.
It’s a subtle, yet distinguished platform. The BMW M5 is a refined gentleman’s car with a flare of exuberance and vigor. My long time friend Kirill knows these qualities oh so well, and he has managed to take the M5 to a crazier level. Sporting a fresh matte silver wrap, the M5′s presence is overwhelming and profund. The car fits 20×11 and 20×12 DPE CS5 wheels while dropped on H&R springs. The V10′s scream is amplified beautifully with the addition of the Tubi exhaust and RPI intake. With the carbon accents, dark wheel faces, and body color that reminds you of a beckoning storm, Kirill’s M5 is sinister and threatening. The finesse of the luxury and class still remain, however, and this car is an artisitc fusion of grim, obnoxious force and tasteful, aesthetic elegance. Kirill has named this machine Emma, and she is an exquisite machine.
Southern Worthersee is one of those truly magnificent times we think about all year long. Even after the show’s over and we start the trip back home, we immediately get excited for the next year’s event. Sowo stands alone and unique among all the other shows. Helen, Georgia, a scenic, captivating Bavarian inspired small town graciously hosts the weekend’s event and welcomes Volkswagen, Audi, and many other car enthusiasts from all over the states. I prepared for the trip down south from Virginia Beach with a convoy of friends and set out to film this spectacular show.
It’s official, Southern Worthersee now rivals H20 International for the best Volkswagen/Audi show on the east coast. 2013 was noticeably larger than any previous year. There were more people, cars, burnouts, and cops than ever before. Thankfully Helen, Georgia still welcomes the stance crowd with open arms. The level of craftsmanship and style was, as always, unbelievable. The amount of money, time, and effort put into these cars is staggering. In addition, it never ceases to amaze me how far people come for this show. Some of the license plates this weekend included Utah, Toranto, and Mexico. They make our humble trip from Philly seem like a breeze. I had a blast providing this coverage and I hope you all enjoy! Hope you enjoy the video.
As the show season kicks off again this year, we all have our favorite events to look forward to months ahead. On my personal list of favorite shows is Springfest, an annual gathering presented by Virginia Beach’s Sumospeed crew. Every year the event grows larger and larger and the venue stays packed throughout the whole day. Every kind of car is welcome and there is a range of class entries for all kinds to enter. Stanced cars fitted on air and proper wheels were once again the popular favorites but a variety of muscle cars, exotics, and classics were proudly shining in attendance as well. We braved a handful of heavy downpours during the day, but once the sun came back out and dried the rain we got back to enjoying one of the biggest car show spectacles ever seen in Virginia Beach. Hope you guys enjoy the video!
