300C's get a bad rap because bad rappers often throw large, narrow, chrome wheels under them at stock height and call it a day. Put in the right hands however the 300C can be a very fine looking luxury sedan. Amrit recently sent in a few photo of his bagged 300 sitting on 21x11 and 21x12.5 Avant Garde f440 wheels and I've got to say there isn't much I would have done different if it were mine.

As fall 2012 came to a close, Brad Dale began prepping his car for winter in Toronto. As the months got colder, a thought began to snowball in his head. After scraping around all summer static on HSD coil overs he decided to take the plunge into air ride.

Early last week Buni sent in a few photos of his m3 converted e91 Touring and Iended up posting one of them on the Facebook fan page.  Buni's touring was incredibly well received and is proof that of the nearly universal appeal of a OEM+ styled wagon.

I posted a before and after comparison of this Icelandic 924 turbo on the Fan Page and a few people (somewhat predictably) declared it a Photoshop. About an hour later I followed up with another photo and still people questioned whether or not the car was real or a manipulation of pixels.

In November a gentleman named Rob sent me an email asking if I had any more photos of his beloved Purple Pontiac known as the Tomahawk, and without hesitation I replied 'yes'. I've been a big fan of the car since my first encounter with it at Performance World in 2011 and when I saw it again at the  at the Fleetwood Country Cruize In free of stanchions I made sure to take several photos.

Sometime in May I tweeted a photo of my Canon on a tripod in front of my car and @ClintJollyGreen was one of the first to ask when those photos would be posted. My car isn't exactly top priority around here so my reply was simply "soon".

About a year ago a post title with a Dexter influenced title 'Body Dump' showcased a hot rod flatz black, bodied, 400hp, s10 I spotted on s10 forum. Last week the owner Erik came across the post, and emailed asking if I would be interested in running a quick update on the truck.

Shortly after Importfest --where he won both Stretch & Pokes' aggressive fitment category and the best assisted Stance award sponsored by Stance Is Everything-- Ryan asked if I would be interested in shooting his car for a feature on Stretch & Poke. Dave (at Stretch & Poke) and myself have been looking for a way to collaborate for a little bit now and this was really the perfect opportunity.

Given their small size and unique look Mini's have always been one of those vehicles that don't need a whole lot of modifications to stand out. A set of wheels, a bit (or a lot) of low, and keeping the shiny side shiny is more often than not all that needs to be done.

Previously featured photographer, Dormimoto Odd Couple homie, Static Motion owner and proprietor, and all around good guy Santiago (Santi) Gomez recently sent in some photos of his completed Supermade Silvia project. The car was super clean when he got it and every since stock has only improved on the car with the current revision perhaps being the best yet.
