Heroes get Remembered but Legends Never Die

I remember the day I met Mark a couple of years ago at a Griots Garage meet, where later in the day I would photograph his and a few other cars at a StanceWars/NW Built photo shoot in Tacoma, a couple months before the first annual StanceWars. I remember it because I was standing in the parking lot talking with Paul Bruney, about when the heck I was going to get some new wheels for my car (still haven’t hah!) My argument at the time was that I didn’t know where to get some decent wheels relatively local, Paul said, you know who would have the answers? Mark would, who’s Mark? was my response.

When I first saw this TL… it struck me as stunning. I kept seeing it around town; I just had to approach him. After only a few short minutes of discussion, he agreed to let me shoot it. Read more ›

Style, class, sophistication; these words come to mind when Mercedes happens to be whispered into our ear. That, or we are trying to remember that fake name the scantily clad cocktail waitress gave you when you asked her for a phone number. Yeah, we have been there. This Mercedes W114, /8 or Strich Acht as they were nicknamed in Germany is anything but the type of girl you try and pickup after a few too many drinks. There are two words that come to mind when I see a slammed classic, pure style. That’s right. Pure, true to form style.

That Northwest Feel

Before Tyler’s big move to the Japanese car scene, Volkswagens had long been apart of his heritage. His grandfather was the first person to import a Karmann Ghia into the United States, and Tyler has owned many Euros of his own but he was ready for something new. As a student of Washington State University, Tyler knew he needed a more reliable form of transportation for his regular travels from Federal Way to Pullman. Dead set on a Subaru, this WRX filled the list of requirements.

Luis Camarena’s – OEM+

Andrew Profiles


I’ve never found my car anything special, she’s just my daily so I see her everyday so all the things i’ve done don’t stand out as much to me as to others. I really didn’t have major plans for the car, as my older brother introduced me to different upgrades I started reading up more and more and I soon found the now dreaded “vwvortex” haha.

I bought this car brand-new in August 2004 in Fayetteville, NC where I was stationed and started doin’ work right away.  Unfortunately, I was headed in the wrong direction.  I really wanted everything to be “blacked out”.  The first accessories that I bought were monster mats, AEM intake system, and black spray paint.  FAIL.  The next summer I went on my first tour to the desert.  While I was there I got everything on my wish list a Upsolute chip, Koni coils (which would be a big pain) and a BOV. Again, FAIL (except the Konis at the time).  When I got back to Fayetteville I was the fastest car in town, well at least in my own hormone filled 19 year old mind.  This is also when I started to be come addicted to MOAR LOW thanks to the invention of the spanner wrench.
