Colorado Sand Sculpture

My family loves the beach, sometimes just to relax for a few hours, but most of the time you can find us on surfboards right beyond the break. Occasionally we get bored and the kids need something to keep them busy. At some point we begin to dig in the

FatlaceTV – Illest After Dark

Here is a glimpse into Illest HQ in Costa Mesa, California before it was officially Illest HQ. Days of hard work went into preparing Illest HQ, but after dark we kept doing what we love to do. The highlight of that night was Ashton Carlisle’s 2007 White Lexus IS350 on

Lau IS300

Here from Northern California is Jason Lau’s IS300 on Work Equips. I first noticed Jason’s car at the past Hellaflush XII in Vallejo, California and from then on it has got my attention to how appealing the car was with this setup. When Jason first got his IS300 he had
