Elegant Stance: Ferrari California on HRE Wheels

stanced_hre_ferrari_california (1)

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted and some of you may think I died or something along those lines, but no worries, I’m back and I’ve brought along with me a pretty unique feature that we all don’t see that often. First off I want to thank all the supporters of Canibeat and those who appreciate my photography efforts. I never knew that many of you would recognize my work when we posted a status on our Facebook fan page asking who your favorite photographers were. Truth be told, while reading the responses, I was truly overwhelm with joy when I read my name. I felt that this feature would be a perfect come back post. Read More

Autocon 2011 Preview: Are YOU Ready?


When the organizers of Autocon approached us this year to ask if we’d be able to attend Autocon 2011, we promised we would. Since last year was such a huge success for them and we wanted to contribute to making the show even better. So this year, instead of just promising coverage, we have decided to show. It will be our first official west coast show that we will be attending as a major vendor. How can we forget about our west coast fans let alone resist a good children’s’ charity car event? It’s going to be one exciting event! Are YOU ready? Read More

Japanese Classic Car Show 2011

japanese-classic-car-show-2011-jccs (1)

The Japanese Classic Car Show is one of those annual events you really don’t want to miss. It’s one of those events that is not subject to a certain age range, style, or enthusiast. Everyone and anyone can enjoy JCCS simply due to the fact that the rare cars, bikes, and “relics” displayed are part of history. If the Natural History Museum was a car show, JCCS would be it. We can really take a look and marvel at how these classic JDM cars have evolved and transformed into their modern day counterparts. All of them have played an extremely crucial part in contributing something to the car industry as we know it. Some technology dating back to the 60’s and 70’s is still being installed onto the cars we drive today. It’s simply amazing being able to appreciate shows like these. Read More

Nisei Week Showoff Car Show 2011

nisei_ car_showoff_2011_0

This past weekend I attended Nisei Week Showoff Car Show 2011. The quality of turn was great last year so I knew that it would be just as great if not better this year. What makes the Nisei car show so enticing is the selection of JDM (and a few Euro) cars that show. If you like clean JDM and VIP style cars this is the show to attend.

SPOCOM Anaheim 2011


Last weekend Marcus and I both attended SPOCOM in Anahiem at the Anaheim Convention Center. SPOCOM is not only a car show, but also a model convention too which is why my last post was an all models post. We thought that the quality of cars that attended were phenomenal and wish we could of captured everything . Cars from out of state such as Texas and Nevada came to show too. Quality builds were everywhere in Anaheim last weekend! Read More

Big Socal Euro Gathering 2011

Socal Euro 2011 by John Zhang & Paul Arthur

Last weekend was the Big Socal Euro Gathering 2011 that was being held in San Diego at the Qualcomm Stadium. It was a 2.5 hour trip for me, but being in a caravan made the trip a little more enjoyable. If I was to sum up the event, the main photo above sums it up pretty well. All Euro makes were in attendance. From timeless classics to modern JDM, a wide variety of cars showed up. Read More
