Number 33

Last July 31, Stance Pilipinas / Manila Fitted held its third meet for 2016.  Established in 2009, the group has 33 gatherings to date since the first meet was held late in 2011.  These meets are very simple: a parking lot, a bunch of cars with the same passion for slammed rides.

Good Vibes from Van City

I present to you Carlos’ JZX81 Toyota Mark II. Carlos hails from Vancouver, a city I feel is much like San Francisco’s brother to the north. The differences stop once you start noticing all of the Japanese Domestic Cars floating around in the city known for hardstyle and Tim Horton’s.

RACEISM 2016 Part 1

Raceism 2016 in Poland, for me the best event in Europe! The cars, the people, the location, it’s all perfectly organized. I had the honour to be the official photographer for this event, and what an experience it was! Never seen so many quality cars together at one location. If

Video Break: Mike’s E36 M3

This video should be considered as NSFW. The cinematography is absolutely sublime and the best word to describe it is “buttery”. Just when you think you couldn’t get enough of Mike Klonoff’s M3, video magician Gino Mascardo hits us with this visually stunning feature! I’m sure this is the first

Rare breed

What do you do when you roll hard? You roll harder. That’s the feeling I got when I came across Mike Mancini’s Mercedes Benz AMG GTs, from Toronto, Canada. A self-confessed lover of all things benz, Mancini owns and operates SMART Automotive, a local shop that pushes out impressive builds including his own C63 507 AMG on

Rough World roots: Manila’s V86

Before becoming a worldwide phenomenon, Akira Nakai first fell in-love with the AE86 during his Rough World days. The infamous drift crew had modified Hachirokus as their weapon of choice in mastering the tight corners of Mt. Tsukuba. This made the AE86 a solid foundation for RAUH-Welt Begriff. For the

Bash to the Future Prep: Brandon Lee’s 2JZ Powered 1996 Nissan 240SX

Back in 2009 I discovered the Fatlace blog and I remember being drawn to its grass roots automotive content. I remember when my friends and I would crowd around a computer to check out the latest Hellaflush article like young boys opening up their dad’s nudie mag for the first time. Every new

My Other Car is Also a Drift Car: Sam Molakides’ 2003 IS300

What happens when your S14 is en-route to Oregon for Final Bout? You drive your other drift car around! Sam (@Asap_Salad) stopped by The Paddock the other day to pick up his custom stickers and surprised us with his IS300. For some reason this car had me feeling like some
