Elkhart Lake’s Road America has been named by many one of the best road courses in the United States. This video highlights the American Le Mans Series and our experiences at the track. For all of us, this particular weekend is one of the most anticipated of the year, and it never disappoints. Good conversation amongst friends, the combining roar of both domestic and European machines, and the familiar smell of food on the grill and campfires make for an incredible weekend in Elkhart Lake! Enjoy!

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.

The Audi B6 was the quintessential German sport-luxury platform of the past decade. The styling is iconic and elegant. Marc Davis has gone through four exterior colors, four suspension setups, and a handful of wheels in his seven years of ownership. His A4 has evolved over time into the simple yet striking machine you see here.
His name Jerald Yutadco, AKA JAYCRAY. Word of mouth is that he is the first to put an Acura RSX on bags. As of now he is running on UAS Air Suspension and sitting on Work Meister 3PC; 18×10.5 and 18.9.5. The RSX is a work in progress, and as of now he’s continuing toward his goals and expectations. We hope you enjoy the video!
Pride. It’s something we all have. We all make choices, and sometimes those choices are less than favorable. When Chico Luna decided to work a deal to trade his BMW E46 for the Honda Civic you see before you, it was an exciting moment. Shortly after, though, Chico began running into problems. Horrible suspension and a damaged engine left Chico out of a ride and also with some hurt pride. After weighing his options and laying out the project before him Chico decided he would not be detoured, instead he would push forward and build this car into what HE wanted. Notice the caps? That’s right you are looking at Luna’s own personal daily/track car and he wouldn’t have it any other way.
None of my friends had ever been to VAG Fair before so this year we decided we should see what all the hype was about. I have to say Corey Sterling has organized an impressive gathering. VAG Fair, which takes place at the Fairgrounds of York Pa, is a relaxing weekend of camp fires, ice cold beer and European cars. Unique to most shows, camping at the show grounds is welcomed and it turned out to be a blast. Of course for those more inclined to sleep in a real bed, the Best Western and Holiday Inn are only a mile from the show and they provide nightlife for the weekend by hosting huge meets. There’s no doubt we’ll be heading back next year. Enjoy!

This week we bring you some stellar shots from Mark Anthony of Colby Scharf’s Bagged 2002 WRX.
Your first car, that car that is usually one that you may not have gotten to exactly pick out yourself but still turns out to be one filled with memories. For a car enthusiast it’s our first hit of what will eventually become a life-long addiction; a life filled with a passion for anything on wheels. For Ricky Granado, he started with a 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer. Its looks were tolerable and its performance was lacking but it would last him through the ups and downs of his first years behind the wheel and would give him just a taste of what would come to fruition in the following years.
When it comes to a build, we all find our own inspiration whether it be a person, idea or tangible object. What we learn and experience festers in our brain, and grows from a single thought to a whole build. On the way we learn new skills, make new friends and create a car that we can truly be proud of even though, as we all know, will never actually be “done”. For Kevin Yeung, he became addicted all due to an arcade game that featured a monster Midnight Blue “Devil Z” which started him on the path to creating a devil all his own.
Alright, so we see a lot of Impreza’s in the modified scene, but it’s not too common to come across a clean, slammed Subaru Forester on a nice set of wheels. Robbie Erickson’s Forester is much more than just your daily grocery-getting wagon, no, this car is bound to stop you in your tracks when you see it rolling by. These shots, sent in by Connor Limbocker capture Robbie’s Forester in motion, rolling on a set of Watercooled IND cc10′s, measuring 18″x9.5″ all the way around! Thanks for the awesome pictures guys!
