We are back at it again with the Fourth Installment of Web Picks! This go-round, I noticed there is an increase in newer event and shoot photography starting to pop up which can only mean that things are slowly starting to pick back up in the scene. We are currently looking for new bloggers and photographers for the site; if you are interested, get in contact with anyone on the current team and lets work together. Hope to see everyone as show season starts to pick up!
Another Winter 2014 week is in the books and I am back at it again with another version of Web Picks (#2). My primary goal with these segments is to give you guys a good variety in photo style and cars. Just like last week here are my favorite photos from around Flickr and the Internet.
I personally invite any of these talented photographers below to reach out to me and lets work together on some features! Keep up the good work everyone and as always just a friendly reminder to add your work to the Canibeat Flickr Pool. I am toying around with the idea of maybe opening this segment up to guests. If this interests you feel free to reach out as well.
Subaru’s rich automotive history can be traced back to two triumphs in the automotive world; their prevalence in WRC, and their all wheel drive system introduced back in 1972. Now, it was inevitable that owners of these cars would begin to step out of the comfort zone that was “rally”, and begin to adopt the trending styles of modification. For Khalid and his STI, it took a bit of warming up to become what it is today. The first 2 years of ownership saw minimal modification; simple bolt-ons and small aesthetic tweaks began an all too familiar path that spirals us enthusiasts into a full-blown project car.
Let’s face it the car scene as a whole utilizes and relies heavily on the Internet for just about anything and everything. Whether you’re looking up prices for parts, checking out the latest builds, or just keeping in contact with your friends we’re a well-connected community because of the Internet. If there is any one area that, for the most part, stays away from the Internet it’d be safe to say it’s Texas. Every year the Lone Star State comes out hard, revealing builds that have been kept under the radar to be premiered at the state’s biggest and most anticipated event; WEKFEST Texas. Just like previous years all Texans were patiently awaiting the announcement of this year’s date and location. Last year WEKFEST was hosted in Austin, and this year in Houston at the George R. Brown Convention Center. With that said here’s a look back at WEKFEST Texas 2013… enjoy! See you guys in February for WEKFEST Hawaii.

Another year, another First Class Fitment gone by. We spend an entire year looking forward to a day that seems to go by faster than every other day of the year and this year was no different. Before sunrise to after sunset, the staff works hard at Princeton Airport for arguably one of the most unique, quality events on the show calendar. Sure, we may be a little biased about our own show but we keep trying to raise the bar each and every year and continue to see attendance grow and some of the best vehicles from across the country come through our gates.
I finally had a chance to make it out to Canibeat’s First Class Fitment hosted at Princeton Airport in NJ and I must say I was completely blown away by the superior level of cars that attended. The show hosted some mint condition nostalgic JDM and Euro cars achieving very proper stance, as well as some freshly modified cars laying frame while obtaining immaculate pain jobs paired with very aggressive fitments. All and all the show brought together a great vibe that kept spectators enthused for hours on end. I had an amazing time with the CIB crew and cant wait for 2014! Hope you guys enjoy.
After attending First Class Fitment for the past 3 years, our good friend Dzemo Halilovic aka PhotoDH decided to make a film documenting this years event. It’s not always easy to capture the vibe and atmosphere of an event but with the help of a few friends Dzemo really did an amazing job capturing this years event from beginning to end!
Dzemo said… “The quality of cars, the weather, the atmosphere was all just perfect! Having the Audi TT win “Best of Air” certainty placed the icing on the cake! Special thanks to Stan Furman Production, Kenan Krijestorac and Nick Sarantinos for making it possible!”
This week we bring you an awesome couple of shots by Quan Duong of Kevin Parsons’ STI.
Newton’s first law of motion states that an object in motion stays in motion, unless acted upon by an outside force. When Kirk first acquired his STI, the gears quickly began to turn, and have yet to be stopped. This STI has gone through it’s fair share of phases, and Kirk’s current look is sure to please.
This was the 3rd year that Stancewars held their show at Bellevue Community College’s parking structure. The parking structure has an amazing view of the Seattle Skyline and with perfect weather one couldn’t ask for a better show. This was my first time attending the show and I was thoroughly impressed with the selection of cars that were in attendance. The top floor consisted of some of the vendors and the Top 100, which were cars that were carefully selected by the staff and the best of what the Pacific Northwest has to offer! The lower levels consisted of general entry cars and there were a huge variety of cars from people all around the PNW. This is not a show to be missed, make sure and check it out next year and enjoy our coverage!
