Gelände: The Eurowise Cayenne

The German sporting car aftermarket and the name Eurowise have been synonymous since the North Carolina based tuning shop opened its doors back in 2009. Volkswagen, Audi, and Porsche are their bread and butter, however several other badges have made their way onto the Eurowise operating tables over the years. Mike Ngo got things rolling…

Desert Runner: Josh Backes’ GX470

The plethora of aftermarket automotive styles and cultures are what keep us going here at Fatlace and I always try to incorporate a wide variety of content to the page. Low cars and tight fitment are what we all cut our teeth on, but this Lexus was too cool not to feature. Enter Josh Backes…

Fifty Two Eighty: The Rocky Mountain 348

I had been actively searching for a new automotive feature as of late and posted a feeler looking for a unique setup that fit the bill. Although there have been countless sportscar and ‘supercar’ builds that have gained mainstream attention I tend to look for oddball outliers that fit the Fatlace mold. The 1994 Ferrari…

Buggin’ Out: Ronnie Ponce’s Type 1

The story behind Volkswagen’s inception will always be one of macabre, but there is no denying that Ferdinand Porsche and a certain tiny-mustached fellow created one of the most iconic automobiles of all time. With over 21.5 million units manufactured since 1937, the air-cooled Type 1, most commonly referred to as the Beetle, is the…

Circus Act: Brandon Schmidt

The journalism world has introduced me to a wide range of individuals. From musicians to professional athletes and die hard automotive enthusiasts, I thoroughly enjoy telling each and every one of their stories. Action sports have always been a major part of my life being that I’ve been skateboarding for almost 20 years. The culture…

Rut-World Begriff

I recently had the opportunity to chat with longtime automotive enthusiast and NASCAR television personality Rutledge Wood. I always enjoy interviewing like minded folks with the same way of thinking when it comes to cars and the like. We talked industry trends, his tenure with Top Gear, and his RWB 911. I’ll touch on the…

Second Serve: Mackenzie’s E30

Rarely does lightning strike the same object twice. As a longtime automotive writer and editor I have thoroughly enjoyed showcasing content from all sides of the industry, but I haven’t featured the same particular car more than once.  I’ve known Mackenzie Ebbers since 2015 and covered her BMW for Royal Stance during the aforementioned year.…

Emo Forever: Hawthorne Heights

I have wanted to publish an article on Hawthorne Heights for quite some time, but haven’t had a lot of non-automotive motivation as of late until now. I have been writing and performing music for years and like most people in their late 20’s that grew up in the early 2000’s era of hardcore punk…
