“No one rolls lower or wider then Bee Dragon”. I have to agree with that quote. Some guys here in the states love rolling low, but most of them do it wrong, and wind up destroying the car. It takes a ton of work and dedication to roll low and wide, correctly. If your going to do it, do it right. Shown in the video, is the radius fenders which gives a ton of tire/wheel clearance while riding inches off the ground. This seriously must be jaw dropping to see in real life. Props to the guys who have been driving low in Japan wayyyyy before us here in the states caught on.<p><a href=”http://vimeo.com/50355398″>Maiham-Media.com x Stancenation.com : Bee Dragon</a> from <a href=”http://vimeo.com/maihammedia”>Maiham-Media.com</a> on <a href=”http://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a>.</p>
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…
It’s really been a long time, probably a first, that I said, damn this 4-door Civic is DOPE! There are a couple really nice 4-door EK’s around the world but nothing too exciting from the previous generation. This build has been around since the beginning of the season but this is my first time seeing it with a “mild” lip kit on it. It looks pretty damn good if I may say so myself. It has a kind of underlying VIP influence, which I really dig. Simple and clean. Just like it should be.
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!
Well I am finally back from my vacation, so it’s back to work!
There have been a couple shows the past two weekends from around the world, and plenty of new builds. In Japan, something that has really caught my eye are the guys from 326 POWER and their unbelievable Nissan builds. We are so used to huge drift focused builds, that I really can’t put a finger on what this is. It reminds me of a lot of the VIP builds you see. Tons of camber, radiused fenders, and cars so low you have a hard time believing they are drivable. I am really loving this new “style” and would love to see more of it. Below is one example of this different way of building a S-chassis. So dope!
Man, I am just not motivated at all today to post. Just so many things on my mind. Here at the end of the day I’ll pump out one for you guys. I’ve been following 326 Power for quite some time now. They have always made some very visually appealing “VIP” style cars. Of course in Japanese standards. But building a perfectly stanced car isn’t enough for these guys. They drift these cars around that are centimeters away from the ground. Gotta love the balls out approach. Props.
Of course we can’t understand anything they are saying. But I’m sure what is going on in the video speaks volumes.
I talk about this a lot. But I really don’t understand why love these weird, quirky looking vans. My past has a small part to play in this as my father loved Previa’s and I’m sure would jump on the opportunity to buy a clean example now if he could. Someday I’d like to build him a full VIP rhd Previa. Below I gave two different examples of how these vans look great totally done up and with a oem+ look.
I really can’t get enough of this color combination.
Simple yet so badass. And I’m sure it’s static since everyone rolls hard in Japan.
The fall is here and I know, when the cold weather comes First Class Fitment is around the corner. With a pre-registration you know when you attend, your going to see nothing but quality. One of the better shows of the year, taking place in an airport, it is a prime spot for epic pictures. The first part is going to solely consist of the car show. But since we did a bunch of photo shoots afterwards, that is what the second part going to consist of.
I, unfortunately didn’t make it into the show. It was upsetting, but I sure as hell was motivated to build something better for next year. Saw some nice gems in the parking lot.
Really loving the Rotiform NUE’s on MK4’s.
The A3 with the super huge turbo R32 swap.
A couple VIP’s that I’ve seen in the past couple import shows.
Took a pic of this nice Legacy because the driver was really cute lol.
Fell in love with this Passat wagon bagged on Rotiforms.
Interesting 4-door Civic on RS’.
A S15 I was very close to buying. Not sure I like the new wheel selection.
Some E30 love.
Beautiful MK4 bagged with a re-trimmed MK5 interior.
Saaaaaaburu love with Corvette wheels.
Another car I fell in love with was this clean NB on BBS RS’.
Ken from STNRL taking about 3 hours to put up the banner.
Going down to the “main” show area, this was the first thing that caught my eye. Didn’t get to see it up close during H2O. Really love how the Diamond steelies look on it.
THE nicest Supra I’ve seen in person. The paint was absolutely flawless and the engine bay was done to perfection.
RSX to die for. Perfect stance.
BMW 318Ti. Huge soft spot for these cars. Love love love.
Yep, dude decided to work on his plane during the show. Coolest thing ever. Still wondering if the two mini’s were his.
Widebody MK5. Dope!
Another car I didn’t get to see up close during H2O. Flawless 300ZX on CCW’s.
Really digging the X5 wheels. A lot of quality work in this car.
A little R/C drift action.
Slammed Forester. Sweet!
I seriously am in love with this Accord bagged on CCW’s. (assuming it’s bagged of course)
This 350Z Nismo seriously does not get old.
Luis from Unique Auto and his Jetta sitting on Image wheels.
Once again, love this Lotus.
This Q45 was so bad ass! Air ride, Work wheels, and a JZ motor to top it off. Damn!
Jess’ of UA’s pride and joy. Still think it’s the best built EK hatch on the east coast.
My favorite car from the show. The amount of time it must have taken to do a full tuck and shave on that motor. Dedication that really payed off. Beautiful job.
Three great looking cars.
Yep, that’s a 2JZ is a RX-7. Props for being different.
My favorite car in the whole world currently is this E38 on 19inch OZ Futura’s.
This E38 is really dope too. Only thing it is missing is a front lip.
I love when normally ugly cars are stanced out like this. Crazy fitment. Reminds me of the VIP that comes out of japan. Peep the license plate.
UA’s very own Alex with his pimp GTR. Always a pleasure seeing this car.
Very sad story behind this F50. The owner passed away before he could see his absolutely beautiful Infiniti done. Huge props to Liberty VIP for bringing the car out in remembrance of his. RIP homie.
A pretty crappy shot of UA member Ray S2000 perfection. As you can see the whole crew was scattered throughout the show.
Loved this Jetta wagon. Another dub on X5 wheels. Yet again, looked really good. Great color choice.
Another really cool looking plane.
This Infiniti was dope. Quality work and really really low.
The nicest M45 I’ve seen sitting next to the nicest Odyssey I’ve seen.
I think I’m going to end part one here. As you can see this show is FULL of dope shizz.
Before I start this post let me clear something up. I was recently corrected on a mistake I made on a previous post, which is fine. I would be upset too, if someone thought my wheels were fake as well. BUT I have no reason to bad mouth a car or it’s drivers decision. I didn’t make this blog to talk trash. I made it to share things I come across that would interest my viewers. If I don’t know something, I’ll say it. I love cars. Nothing else matters.
Back on track. I was looking through the pictures from Sessions Plantinum VIP Fuji Speedway Meet and found MANY amazing VIP cars. One really stood out to me in particular.
I think it’s the combination of the color, along with the super cambered rear wheels. There is just so much right going on with this car. The subtle radius fenders is a mod not really known in the states, but I have a feeling it will be catching on soon. This is one of those, damn I wish we had this car in the states, moments.
