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!
Today’s wallpaper Wednesday looks back at H2Oi and the infamous static Hoodrich S4 belonging to Devin Larson. H2Oi was a great way for photographers and car owners to meet up that other wise would be a few states apart.
Honda’s these days are a dime a dozen. Yet the differences, and availabilities (or lack thereof) in the States, has left many owners with a few options; if a certain model wasn’t offered in the country, they could either import one, or transform an existing trim level and bring it up to the desired specs. In Teddy’s case, the latter was chosen. With a passion for Honda and their vast array of interchangeable parts, it wasn’t long before Teddy’s Civic began to take shape. With it’s fair share of rare parts and a 1.8L pushing just over 220whp, Teddy explains to us that at this phase in the car’s build, he couldn’t be any happier.

Brenden Ramos always had a thing for cars growing up. He was surrounded with Euros in his early teens due to the fact that his Dad drove an E36 M3 that originally sparked Brenden’s interest in performance. He always wanted something quick and aggressive, yet clean and refined at the same time without having to go overboard with cosmetic additions. One day his Dad brought home an E92 of the same model as its predecessor and Brenden knew that going fast was right up his alley.

We all know how to play the game. Step 1. Find a Car. Step 2. Lower the car and add some wheels. Step 3. Make your car look the same as any other car in the “scene.” But for a select group this isn’t good enough, they don’t like the game or its rules……..so they change them. John Diep took a hard look at his BMW 335i and thought to himself this wasn’t going to be the run of the mill BMW build. Ichi, as he is known to his friends noticed a lot of BMWs all looked the same and really having a passion for the JDM and Euro scene he decided to use a little flare from both to inspire his build. Shooting for an OEM flare, John decided to stick to quality and go for broke with the good stuff right from BMW.
The BMW 2002 is elementary yet stunning, a design that breathed life back into the struggling Bavarian Automaker which eventually led to ever-popular 3 Series. It’s a chassis that has also granted freedom to the car enthusiast that have owned them for over four decades. Concourse, Motorsports and even the Stance communities have become fond of this surprisingly nimble and stimulating chassis when choosing a project for their next build no matter its eventual purpose.
The original VW Beetle is the great-grandfather of import car culture in America. Just as Honda and Toyota found customers looking for more efficient vehicles in the 1970s, and Nissan’s 240Z won fans that preferred a lower cost option to contemporary European sports coupes, the German’s VW Beetle found foothold in 1950′s America as consumers looked for a cheaper alternative to the pricier domestic competition.
This Wednesday, we bring you Kyle Del Rosario’s 1990 E30 along with Ramil Ocampo’s 2012 civic si.
We can all reminisce about our dream cars from the fringe of adolescence. Whether it be an old Porsche 911, or a Chevy Camaro, we have all had visions of one day owning the car we put in the highest of regards. Josh LaPointe, being an avid Nissan enthusiast, was forced to decide whether to invest in a motor rebuild after an unfortunate boost spike on his 200SX SE-R project, or move on and acquire the dream car of his high school years, a Nissan 350z.
