Don’t Call It a Comeback

What better way to make our feature comeback in 2016 than starting with a car like Lee Zheng’s Nismo 370Z!? We’ve been quietly following Lee’s build for some time and it was well worth the wait. This is easily one of the best Z builds coming out of New England, and knowing Lee, it’s not the end of this fairlady’s journey. Photos: Collin Stankard / Words: Matthew Gaumont

Blue Streak | Evans’ Laid R

Evan is one of those guys who lets his car do the talking. He’s super quiet but always seems deep in thought. Maybe on dinner, maybe on work, maybe on what wheels he wants next. Whatever it is, his mind has certainly led him in the right direction with his R. This car is one of those crowd pleaser types. You can bring it to a meet and get love from enthusiasts, or park it in the city and get looks and admiration from all. The blue and gold combo is one that isn’t supposed to work but does, and damn well! It took two shoots to compile the following set but thanks to Evans patience, Eric Banash and I got it done! Check Evan out on IG at @dutchmastr9.

Formula Drift Photo Set | Matt Gaumont

This Formula Drift season has been one of the best yet. With aggressive rookies trying to prove themselves amongst the most seasoned vets, the competition is reaching new heights. Heavy rain looming and ridiculous rain ponchos in hand, Jared Cabral and myself set out to capture the rawest of all Formula Drift stops, known simply as The Gauntlet. The following is a selection of my best and favorite photos from FDNJ 2015. – Matt

Long Overdue

Good things come to those who wait…or in our case…good things come to those who slack. I’ve been wanting to shoot Mina’s car for two years. Every time I’d see him It would be “Bro lets shoot soon!”, and it would never happen. But in 2015, we finally got it done, and it was well worth the wait. Mina’s CC is at its peak and we were there to catch the “ICE” in all its glory.

Hate It or Love It

Johnny is a “go with the flow” kind of guy and his car shows it. The Rustolla has received a lot of negative criticism throughout its existence, but theres something about seeing this car in person that changes the naysayers perception. It’s one of those cars that makes you smile.  Odd stickers and funny touches provide something amusing and unique in every nook of the car. From the “custom” pano roof, to the 1st gen RX7 Recaro seats, Johnny has a fun creativity that can only be achieved in a car that has seen this much battle.

Well Rounded

As you saw in Randy’s 335 feature, its clear that cars on air aren’t just for show. So you thought Rizz’s car was a rarity? Think again. Patrick’s WRX is the nail in the coffin to anyone who thinks bags are just for groceries. This built EJ25 swapped pebble pusher is breaking hearts, and necks on the streets of Maryland.

Silver Surfer

Find me a nicer Accord in Mass. Better yet, find me one NOT on Vossens. Creativity in the Accord game is scarce, so when you see an 8th Gen surfin’ on Weds, it’s grabbing your attention. Aldrich isn’t a showoff by any means but you sure cant tell by his car. Simple, yet aggressive, Aldrich’s Accord is a definite neck breaker and he has even more planned for this already impressive street sweeper.

The Best of Both Worlds

There’s a bit of segregation in this scene. On one side you have the function guys; the ones who love the raw thrill of driving. On the other hand, you have the show crew who appreciate the aesthetics and customizability of cars. Now, the majority of people feel that a car on air suspension cant perform well on a track. Normally I would agree, up until recently when I saw a bagged STI outperform others on the track. So is there a happy medium? Ask Randy. The BMW 335 is no slouch out of the box but Rizz had big plans for his Barbera Red coupe. With a handful of bolt ons, this power happy N54 power plant is pushing more than enough for some spirited driving, all while sitting on Bag Riders air suspension. Best of Both Worlds? You decide.
