Gonna wrap things up in the features/highlights side of things as we roll ahead with Part 4 of 2013 Re-Up series! Definitely stay tuned for Part 5 & 6 as we take a look back at Driven 2013 and Sunday School 2013! Let’s get right to it… There’s no denying the fact that the FR-S has definitely made it’s imprint on the automotive scene this past year but it’s awesome to see the new school “86” owners linking up with the old school “86” owners like we have here featuring Beniot’s FR-S and Spencer’s AE86. Peep the old school and […]
You’ve heard it over and over again, and anyone with a true project car will swear by it: a project car is never truly finished, it just continues to progress and get better over time. A lot of cars come and go, but it’s the ones that come out and continue to keep up with the times that truly stand out and set the tone for both newcomers and those already familiar to the scene. As repetitive as we may sound regarding project cars that are never done and maintain consistency, there’s a particular Integra Type-R that takes everything we’ve […]
With Driven 2012 coming up quickly, we thought it’d be a good idea to look back and see what everyone had to offer in 2010 and what we can look forward to for this year. Since Driven was skipped for us in 2011 – there has been a significant amount of time for everybody to get their whips refreshed. From new cars, to new parts, complete overhauls or tweaks to an already existing minty car, we think this will be the best Driven yet. We have a handful of fresh new faces joining us this year and it’s only a […]
Dumped….. a common theme on all of Justin’s Honda’s. I’m sure some of you remember previous pictures posted of Justin’s whips, his 98’ champ white ITR here and his old EG hatch here. The locally iconic Civic hatch has since been sold but Justin has been hard at work perfecting its replacement. Several suspension set ups were installed and tested before Justin settled with the well know and proven ‘Honda-Tech’ slammed suspension set up otherwise know as Ground Controls & Koni Yellows. As you can imagine the ride was adjusted dozens of times until the desired ride height was set. […]
Came across this little video on 8th civic and thought i would share it, this car has been the talk of the forum and its from Ontario too! Make sure you check out the rest of the videos in his vimeo channel they are very well done. The Red Civic from Rough Draft / Backstage on Vimeo.
Being slammed is the latest trend in the import tuner world, however, cars with a slammed stance tend to be impractical, especially on the roads we have in Calgary. Tuners have to choose between the sick look of a slammed ride and have trouble with their car scraping everywhere or settle for a less aggressive stance but be more practical. We have here 2 cars in which their owners chose either function or form. On one side, we have Josh Sivadas’s lowered white Integra Type-R with Volk CE28n’s and on the other side we have Reggie Mah’s slammed Phoenix Yellow […]
words//jc.tenchavezphotos//prashant.topiwala Last Saturday a few of us from the crew went out and took some random snaps of our whips. This shoot almost didn’t happen (Thanks Punit) but with the patience of the peeps who came out we were able to get some pretty dope shots as the sun was ready to fade for the day. Shout out to Justin and Jackie T. for coming along with us. More pics after the jump! The Group Ryan’s EP3 Justin’s Type-R Punit’s Integra Jackie’s Integra Corey’s Civic JC’s XRS Prashant’s GTI
Near the end of the season last year we had the opportunity to shoot both Jackie’s S2000 and Dal’s K20 Type R together behind Speedtech. It’s not the ideal location, but the cars themselves make up for the lack of any type of backdrop you probably won’t even notice. I will probably end up shooting Jackie’s S2000 again come this season with his new goodies, but for now.. this is how it sat before we closed 2009. In a way, I think we’re all trying to post up what we had for 2009 so that everyone can take a look […]
