Dem Model 5′s (Wallpapers)!

There are certain wheels from Japan that will always have a timeless/classic look. One wheel that fits this description is the AVS Advan Model 5. Unfortunately they have been discontinued for some time now,  and replacement or similar styles always seemed to be missing something.  I’ve been fortunate to own a pair of these and don’t plan on ever selling my 18/19 setup. Click on the Marga Hills widebody NSX and GP Sports S15 for a 1920×1280 wallpaper. Special thanks to Rays and Yokohama for these high quality press shots.

Jordan McCord’s 1990 Honda CRX Si

 

 

Congrats to Jordan McCord for his feature in the April 2014 issue of Honda Tuning Magazine. The first time I saw Jordan’s CRX was @ Wekfest Chicago. Although I thought the car was super clean in person, I didn’t really appreciate the details until I read his extensive build thread on NWP4life.  His car was also noticed on the Chronicles blog, receiving recognition as a “Top 10 Honda” in 2011.   This shoot took awhile to coordinate due to Jordan’s military commitments, but I was luckily able to meet up last summer for this shoot. Rather than going into too many details about the car, check out the full feature and article by clicking here.  Here are some bonus high res images for you guys in the meantime-

Mazda RX-7 FC & RIP Modified Magazine

As you may have heard, Modified Magazine has gone under several months ago. It was a shock to alot of us, but at the same time, a testament to the decline of print media. It’s been an honor to shoot for them over the last several years. I also want to acknowledge Peter Tarach, one of the nicest guys in the industry for the opportunity.  Modified will always be remembered for providing great, serious content;  yet staying true to itself. You never saw a shitty “trendy” build on Modified. Peter always featured high caliber, quality cars.

With that said, I’m privileged to share with you Xiong Kou Lor’s FC RX-7. He had the honor of being on the cover of the very last issue.  This RE-Amemiya themed FC build is one of the nicest I’ve seen and has a very Japanese flair to it. I won’t go into to many details of the car, so I urge you to find this issue (April 2014) to read more about it before it’s too late! Here are some bonus pics in the meantime.   RIP Modifed.
