Take Your Pick: Lucas Perez’s JDM Duo

Lucas_Perez_JDM_Duo_COVER

For many of us of the Millennial generation, our fascination with JDM automobile culture began with Polyphony Digital’s Gran Turismo series for the Sony Playstation. My first exposure to the game was the third installment, and I remember first seeing the red Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT Apex and having no doubt that it would be my starter car, owing much to the unapologetic 80′s styling cues . As we dived deeper in the game, our eyes were opened to dozens of cars whose manufacturers might have been familiar, but only as modes of reliable, safe, vanilla transportation.  Our parents, born into the era of the great American muscle car, remembered the Mustang and Camaro as the performance beasts that they were, but many had opted for more reliable Odysseys, Siennas, Accords and Camrys as their daily transportation and kid-haulers.  While the Japanese sports cars were far from unknown, their existence did not penetrate into the American consciousness the way that domestic muscle cars and Italian supercars had throughout the 80′s and 90′s.  And yet, our culture finds itself in the middle of an explosion of vintage JDM boom.

A Menace to Society: Scott Waracka’s Drift Inspired S13

Waracka_S13_COVER

Society sees car enthusiasts as misfits and trouble-makers as they constantly smear our community due to street racing, drifting on public roads and car meets that get out of hand. When you think that they would want enthusiasts to seek out safely sanctioned events on closed tracks they have instead worked to close our sanctuaries, and some have even been torn down in place of more “community beneficial” facilities slowly trying to kill our beloved car community.

Ultimate Dubs 2014 Coverage (UK)

UD14_Cover

Ultimate Dubs is one of the select few shows we choose to cover each year simply because of the level of pure quality delivered out of Europe and the U.K. UD was held at the Telford International Centre (Nr Birmingham) again this year, which is a perfect location for a typical British day in March. Not this time, though, as the temperature dropped as low as 18 degrees for this year’s season opener. Social media was going a bit crazy with the days leading up to the event, especially since everything is kept top secret up to the last minute to squeeze out any final touches.

A few of the cars you will set your eyes on below where planned months in advance only to be finished with hours to spare. This all makes it very exciting and fresh, and makes my job as a photographer a tad bit harder when the car is crowded with people all day. Patients sure does pay off.

I hope you enjoy the coverage, and expect to see more from the UK this summer!

Wallpaper Wednesday: Sarah’s Mk1 Audi TT

VSKF RearLong cib

Every year around this time, thousands of enthusiasts across the nation are putting the finishing touches on their rides, draining their bank accounts for the last few parts they need to button up their build, or putting the last of their blood, sweat, and tears into their creation after a long winter project. Through all the trials and tribulations, however, there is no better feeling than the smile you get after lowering the car onto all fours for the last time or firing it up for the first time.

Bobbin’ Triumphantly – John Daikus’ Triumph Bobber

John_Daikus_Triumph_Bobber_COVER

The motorcycle, for decades, has been the epitome of cool, its Steve McQueen, its Marlon Brando, its Peter Fonda, and its James-Fucking-Dean.  No matter the decade they have always brought that badass factor to any person that rides them. It was never because they were flashy but instead because they flaunted a simplistic beauty and installed the ideal of that ever-desired freedom.

Bobber and Café style bikes truly embrace that simplicity because they have never been about adding parts like their automotive kin but instead they are all about stripping down a bike to the bare necessities. They aren’t about performance but instead about riding with style and those moments of enjoyment on a beautiful day when the wind can flow through your being and help you escape the daily stresses that life can bring us.

Verändern: Christian Quatz’s German Opel Rat Rod

ms-opel_cover

The rat rod scene has always seemed somewhat elusive. The owners stick to themselves for the most part, while still maintaining a sort of “core” that know each other and the cars that they spend their weekends wrenching on. From the outside looking in these gear heads seem to have quite the niche, but the rat rod scene is far broader than I had previously thought. Christian Quatz and his Opel rat rod out of Germany are proof that this scene is alive and well even outside of the United States.
