Wow… what a fun and crazy last few weeks it’s been, and show season has only just started. Spring Fest was such a fun and huge success for us. Our own home state showed us nothing but mad love, and the quality of builds surpassed all of our expectations. I had a chance to go down to Helen, Georgia for SOWO (Southern Worthersee) this past weekend and let me just say it was the most fun I’ve had at any car event ever. I made the trip purely for pleasure and had a blast! I miss it so much already but am already looking forward to Wekfest LA in two weeks. You know the drill, I am back again with this edition of Web Picks. Check out some amazing photos from Garrett Church/GrcExposures, Incognito Media, Jan Glovac Photography, Zandbox Photo, David Schiffner, Richard Benson, Andy aka Sharkix, and Grant Young Photography. Enjoy!
This week’s Wallpaper Wednesday showcases Mason Gavin’s Bagged E46 on CCW LM5T’s, shot by our very own David Monzingo.
Two years ago I was introduced to my first Formula Drift event in Atlanta. It was an absolute blast and every year since, I’ve always been stoked to go back. This year was no exception.
This Wallpaper Wednesday, we bring you Christian Cania’s Subaru from Gilroy California, shot by Patrick Lauder.
It’s said that if you want something bad enough you’ll get it, that the law of attraction will work in mysterious ways ultimately granting you your wish if you can fork up the patience. I believe this to be quite a plausible factor of life, and for this particular 24-year-old Windy City native he finally got what he had been dreaming about for so many years.

EVOLUTION Presented by BLOX is a unique concept that encompasses many different elements.
While shooting Austin Morris’s Ruckus a couple months ago he brought up his Passat project that was in the works. The plans he had in mind sounded extensive and daunting, but after long nights in the garage and some meticulous planning Austin Morris finally revealed his latest creation, and I’ll be honest… I didn’t quite expect this.
Each year as the bitter cold begins to retreat the folks at Grossman Tuning wrap up their plans for their Spring show-season opener, Water by the Bridge. What started as a small get together at their shop in downtown Louisville, Kentucky, has become a must-attend for anyone in the MidWest and Southern U.S. The former “Grossman Tuning Show” has seen quite an exponential increase in attendance since its humble beginnings in the back parking lot of their shop.
To wrap up the month of April and kick off the new season on the East Coast Team Summospeed presented the fifth annual Springfest, hosted at a brand new location that really set the tone compared to previous years. This year Springfest laid claim to the Virginia Beach Convention center, which allowed the event to be broken up into an inside and outside portion. The weather that hit Virginia and the surrounding states the night before the show left minor concerns on how it would affect the attendance of participants. Thankfully everyone woke up to a cloudless sky on show day and Springfest 5 ended up being more than proper, providing a DJ, food, an on-site mobile dyno, vendors, and a diverse showcase of cars.
Needless to say Springfest was a great time prior to this year, but now with the new location the event has definitely become the show to attend if you want to start the season off the right way.

Being a vintage car owner myself, builds that pop up involving anything pre-80s always manage to grab my attention. When Cristian first showed me pictures of Ryan’s Datsun I was blown away because for one it was a chassis that you rarely see, but also that this was a car that had been preserved with exquisite precision. The model that spans across your screen is a 1974 Datsun 610 Bluebird-U SSS-E which Ryan and his wife have carefully nurtured back to its showroom condition and have also extensively documented this unique piece of vintage car history.
