    Friends in Low Places

    Monday, April 22, 2013

    Sometimes a car that you “will swear to never turn a wrench on” takes a bite from the modification bug. We can completely relate. Take a look at Ian MacLeod’s 2008 Volvo C30 out of Texas that sets the bar to a new low. Mobile and OG versions here!

    First Class Fitment

    Friday, December 7, 2012

    Hanging around a parking lot looking at cars, to the uninitiated, seems odd enough. Paying for the privilege to do such a thing, seems a little…off. Do all the aforementioned at an airport in New Jersey and things transcend the word “confusing.” But that’s just what we did to experience Canibeat.com’s show called “First Class […]

    Friday, October 5, 2012

Wekfest Texas – 2013

The Texas version of Wekfest happened in Houston this year and I was able to cruise down to check it out. This year’s Wekfest had a few similarities to last year’s event which was held in Austin and a couple of differences that makes these shows fun to attend. Unfortunately, the show ended up opening […]

Damaged Goods: A story of a saturated feature shoot.

When starting off for a photoshoot you always pray for three things: a good sky, no rain and minimal humidity. Sometimes you get your wishes, but sometimes you don’t.  In this particular case, during a shoot with Casey’s Focus SVT, “I didn’t”. We carefully organized three feature shoots back-to-back at three locations that would cater to each car’s […]

The New (New) Volkswagen Beetle Gets Even More Funky

Remember this bad little bug from the 2000 L.A. Auto Show? We certainly do. We were then still, and perhaps now slightly, captivated by the New Beetle’s retro panache and quirky personality. It’s always interesting to see cars that “take guts” to put out on the market, and the New Beetle was a perfect example. […]

-10° Outside? Time to warm that heart up.

It’s down right bone chilling outside Solo Towers. With wind chill we’re hitting negative temps, easily. And after a good snow shoveling sesh it takes nearly a pot of coffee to warm up, finally. Or giving this video a gander should do it. This video is a dream of any car guy, to both be the receiver and the giver. […]

(Functioning) Lego Car

You’ll be hard pressed to find as big of a Lego advocate as myself. Legos are what cultivated my mechanical interested mind and their larger cousin, a toy called pipe works, are responsible for my “built not bought” passion. With all this love, for modular plastic bricks I’ve never come close to accomplishing this amazing […]
