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.

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.

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.

The Fairlady Z family started back in 1969 with the introduction of the 240Z. 4.5 decades later, the Z legacy is still going strong. We’ve known Tiler way back when he was in the supercharged Maxima game, so it didn’t come as a surprise when he upgraded in the VQ family, to the 370Z. Knowing Tiler to be a gearhead perfectionist, we knew his Z wouldn’t be a slouch. Armed with a GTM Twin Turbo kit, carbon aero pieces, and Forgestar wheels, Tilers Z isn’t just a Fairlady, its the Firstlady.

Both the S2000 and RX7 are hailed by motorsport enthusiasts as some of the best platforms available. The RX7 was once banned from JGTC for being “too fast” for the competition and the S2000 is one of the most nimble and exciting cars to drive to date. So when gear heads get their hands on these legends, they tend to take it to the next level. Chris Trans big turbo RX7 and Chris Martin’s supercharged S2000 both sport classic Regamasters for a track inspired look with the performance to back it up.

It’s not every day you see an S15 Silvia, In fact, most people have never seen one. I’d even go as far as to say that the S15 is more rare in the United States than the R34 Skyline. So how did some 18 year old kid get his hands on one? We’ll leave that one a secret. We’ve seen Alex’s Silvia around on the net a few times but first saw it in person when the SNTRL pre game meet cars were terrorizing Times Square at night. We knew we had to shoot this beautiful S15 as we may not get a chance to see or shoot another for years.
