I gotta say, I am really digging what Vossen is doing. They have a awesome selection of wheels and at pretty good price points. What they are knocking out the park is the way they display their products. There aren’t many over the top builds rocking Vossen wheels. Most of them are simple and elegant, and most importantly it’s cars that people can relate to. They see a car like an Infiniti G35 sitting on a dope set of Vossen’s accompanied with some air ride and you have an audience that see’s a car that they can build fairly easily. Heck I never thought about buying a 4-door G35 until I saw a white one slammed on 20’s. And now with their precision series your going to see even more expansion. Going over some pictures from TAS I saw they had a booth with some awesome demo cars. Keep doing what your doing Vossen. Mad props.
Who would have though “stance” would have lasted this long? I didn’t, but secretly inside I REALLY hoped it wouldn’t turn out to be a fad. C’mon you know you did too! At this point we can all safely say it isn’t going anywhere, so why not embrace it! Sure the word “stance” is super annoying but so is “yolo” and “swag” and look how long those phrases lasted. Anyway’s as we embrace stance, lets check out this cool vid on a stanced out RSX. Personally, I’m in love with this thing. I’ve always had a soft spot for RSX’s but this one is definitely extreme. Air ride always helps with crazy fitment and the addition of the super wide Works just put this car over the edge. Boy, I would rock the crap out of this thing. Props to the builder!
I don’t know about anyone else, but there are a ton of builds in my mind I would love to do. A lot of them, of course haven’t been done yet and I would like to keep it that way. haha. Well one of my “dream” builds was a Audi 50, a car we never got over here in the states. I remember a yellow one roaming around the west coast for years, but with a 10k asking price it was just a teeny bit above what I was willing to spend. Well long story short, Rotiform eventually bought the car and sold it to a guy over here in New York. It landed in good hands it seems, because some pictures were released of it’s recent build. And, it’s beautiful. Rocking some new Rotiform 4-spoke TMB’s and a perfect hue of blue I’m glad it was done right. Props to the builder. Guess I was too slow.
PS – I still want one.
I always give respect where respect is due. Stephen Brooks is easily one of my favorite automotive videographers, so he deserves a post every time he comes out with a new vid. Great editing, great story line, and great shots. Keep it up! Other then that did you guys see the Lotus on BBS RS’ and air ride? It’s like a James Bond remix, but cooler. I’ve wanted to build one since I don’t know how long. Seriously cool car that isn’t going to break the bank. Well the repairs might, but I am some ideas to get around that. hehe<p><a href=”http://vimeo.com/50122974″>FORGE MOTORSPORT ACTION DAY 2012 // Castle Combe Circuit</a> from <a href=”http://vimeo.com/stephenbrooks”>Stephen Brooks FILMS</a> on <a href=”http://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a>.</p>
AccuAir has and will always(as long as they keep doing what they’re doing) be cool. And when your cool, your stuff sells. Ok, so maybe not that simple, but you get what I mean when it comes to a successful air suspension company. By the way, did you see the iPhone controller coming out next month? Now that’s cool.
Body dropped old school trucks have been my ultimate weekness. I even posted a picture of this truck, not too long ago. It’s absolutely perfect. Modern drivetrain and wheels, with a completely custom chassis. And the best part was that they didn’t paint it. So dope!! Here’s a little video on some info on the truck as well as some reasons why AccuAir is cool. Ha!
I can’t express how much I love when people take rusty cars with crazy patina body drop them and drag frame. Even better when they leave the body as is it and completely update the entire drivetrain and suspension. I think it’s becoming so popular because you simply cannot replicate the look. Hopefully it doesn’t become too mainstream but I really do enjoy seeing it. I came across this picture of a really dope example of what I’m talking about. Many people don’t understand how much work goes into a proper body drop. It’s pretty intense. And after all that work, leaving the patina gives the truck that much more character. Oh, and having baller wheels always help. So dope!
What a great color combo as well.
I am beginning to realize I am becoming more and more busy, so full coverage of events might not always happen, but I will try my best to bring them to you guys. This past weekend was the most intense weekend of the entire summer. I started friday evening, and didn’t get real sleep until sunday night. With Tuner Evolution saturday, SNTRL’s Pre-game saturday night, and Wekfest all day sunday, I was exhausted to say the least. Running completely off my love and passion for this community. Anyways Tuner Evolution was a pretty dope show. We didn’t stay too long, so I didn’t get all the shots I wanted but I got most of the quality cars being shown.
On to my coverage.
A little bubble bath action for the Unique Auto members.
One of the first cars that caught my eye was this Evo on air. It’s pretty crazy how popular Evo X’s have gotten and how damn good they look modded.
A VERY dope VW line-up, more on the first two cars in a bit!
Unique at the Fresh Meet Booth.
Always supporting my buddy Anthony and his videography. Fernando’s Lancer always looking good.
A beautiful 993 Turbo on CCW’s.
This for me was the car of the show. Not only did it look immaculate but it was powered by a twin turbo V8. Absolutely nuts! Owner said it was built completely in his backyard. Props!
The two other, equally as impressive AE86’s from that crew.
You have to love track cars that are this clean. Look at that bay!
I think was the first modded BRZ I had seen in person. Really liking it.
I really love how these flair accentuate the body lines so well. It’s hard to make flairs on a big car work but the owner has succeeded. Gotta love the Works and matching Recaro’s.
Most people walked right past this car because, lets be honest, it’s pretty riced out. But look past the rice and it’s a car that was never brought to the states, Mitsubishi FTO.
Beautiful Caddy. Not sure if it was on air or not, but it was super low and sitting on the tires.
Bagged Jetta on Rotiform SNA’s that I really want to buy for the S4.
Dude was doing wheelie’s throughout the entire event.
Interesting Quad on 24’s.
First time seeing this car is person as well. The Rotiform TMB’s make this car look baller as hell. So dope!
Another dope looking Evo 10.
You can’t ever go wrong with a NSX on Works. Loved seeing this car all weekend.
Seeing a couple really dope modded MR2’s this weekend was cool. This was nice and simple, dropped on CCW’s.
The self proclaimed “Money Team”. haha Love these guys.
Will always love these Lexus SC’s.
Of course with my large soft spot for stretched bikes I had to snap a picture of this one. Damn, I want one so bad!
This would be a lovely daily for me if crime wasn’t so crazy for these Honda’s.
Although 18’s may be a tad bit too small, these CCW’s look great on this E92.
Always great seeing this M3 on Rotiforms. It’s crazy this car is driven as much as it is with that front lip as close to the ground as it is.
Although a little bias, this was the car I couldn’t stop staring at the entire show. It just looked so damn good!. Perfect fitment. Great patena. Huge inspiration.
Well that about does it for my coverage. I may have mentioned this before, but I will not have as many in-depth coverage like I have before, but I will when I have the time to. Until next time…
I am really acquiring a small addicting for these classic 50’s era American cars. Especially with the right about patina and flair with a touch of air ride. There is just something that is just so badass about rolling down the road in something like this. Something with so much character. Props to the owner for driving it as much as he does. Like it should be.
I don’t think there was ever a story, car related, that has been so magical in the volkswagen community. I actually remember seeing a MK3 year and years ago, being built, on vortex with fresh candy deep red paint and a set of chrome wheels I had never seen before. The car was on air with perfect subtle body mods and was thought to be the perfect MK3, and this was before it was even done. There were 2 maybe 3 pictures total that ever surfaced on the car, and then it was never seen or heard of again. And I’m talking year! Well at a recent show out it Cali the ghost of a car FINALLY made its public debut. It’s pretty crazy seeing such an iconic build, done. Personally, I have never seen a better MK3. It’s perfect in more ways then one. The Unicorn is here!
I think I started my coverage of the last Fresh Meet the same way, but DAMN what a meet this turned out to be! It was pretty stressful and chaotic for us staff but it really turned out to be a great event all around. The rain held out all day and a ton of dope cars came out to share this epic event. Huge thanks to everyone who made the trip, because of you this turned out to be THE event of the summer.
Now, as far as my coverage is concerned, it is seriously lacking haha. With the 1OF booth we had running and running around like a mad man trying to keep everything organized, it was hard to take the time and take some quality shots. I missed a ton of great looking cars, but I’ll show you what I managed to get.
Start off with a shot of the DJ booth which was on a flatbed. Pretty dope spot and they were rocking alllll day.
Right next to the DJ was Mike’s beautifully built Scion sitting aired out on BBS RS’.
A shot of our 1OF booth. Thanks again to everyone who paid us a visit.
Always loved the color choice on the CCW’s on this S2000.
Here is something you don’t see everyday. An Audi 90 Cabrio very nicely done sitting on what seems to be BBS Super-RS’.
Always have a soft spot for a white BMW E46 M3.
Kens Kustoms came out with their low riders. Pretty amazingly built machines. I want one so BAD!
Shows just how diverse this car show was. “Stance” in two very different forms.
A beautiful Acura RL on bags. Not too common, I digg!
Part of Kens Kustoms line-up.
I was really liking the white on white with this S2000.
Will always love a classic E30 convertible. This one sporting bags and what look to be J-Lines.
A very clean RHD CRX. Sad that this car probably didn’t get many looks because it wasn’t slammed and stanced out.
A line-up of really great looking cars. Four of which were RHD. Yea, we got a good crowd.
The Ruckus that wound up winning 1st place best Ruckus. We’ll deserved. Put together very nicely.
A couple of Honda’s on air. That silver Accord in the back was pretty intense. Super low.
Always great seeing this S15 around.
This was dope. Audi Allroad on 20 inch Vossen’s.
One of my personal favorite’s from the show. Porsche 993 GT3 sitting nicely on Rotiform’s.
Gabe caught texting on the job! haha
Pretty interesting looking Scion. Not my cup of tea but you can’t deny the amount of work put in.
Evan and his buddy, both coming slammed all the way from Queens.
A pretty serious setup in this low rider.
My buddy Peno set up a sweet RC drift track and showed off some of the SNTRL bodied drifters.
Jess’ flawless hatch and the Fresh Meet booth in the background.
Josh coming up for the day to help us out. His lovely TSX on CCW’s.
The one and only SNTRL team camped up in the shade, and showing some new products.
Was in love with this Busa. It was packing 600hp! Yea that’s right, 600!!! On a motorcycle! Straight nuts! I love how they kept the original front plastics. Ultimate sleeper!
Mr Pravan getting up close and personal!
First time I had seen these cars jumping around. Pretty amazing what a ton of batteries and compressors can do.
Something else you don’t see everyday. Toyota MR2 on Work CR-01’s.
Can’t go wrong with a 64 Impala on Dayton’s.
I was drooling at this Monte Carlo all day. I would seriously rock the crap out of this car! Straight-outa Training Day! lol
Can’t go wrong with Bentley wheels on a TT.
Gotta love the old school!
Ugh this might need to be my next daily. MK3’s are so timeless.
Alex’ old Evo now rocking some Volk CE’s
My brothers came to hang out. This is my bro Danny’s 944, sitting really nice if I say so myself.
Some VIP action.
Oh, and this was the line for the food truck. Was seriously this long all day. We need more food trucks for next time. haha
Again, I loved the variety of cars that showed up that day.
AMS killing it with their line up as usual.
A little three wheel action.
Rob of Liberty VIP and his GS sitting LOWWW on 18’s. So dope.
The hot dog man working out of a chopped top CRX. Pretty creative.
Another great looking GS.
Kenny aka MADJDM of SNTRL having a little RC fun.
Really liked the simplicity of this S14. Great color and the owner was super cool.
Purple R34 GTR that come out last fresh meet. Always a pleasure seeing one of these in person.
White Supra that seems like it has been around and looked like this for years now. Time for a change? Or timeless beauty?
I’ll leave you guys with a shot of a low rider rolling out the way it knows best.
Like I said, I missed shooting a ton a great cars, but I was so busy I just couldn’t get to them. I had a blast and I can’t wait for the next event. See you all again soon!
