Modified Luxury and Exotics

Better late than never okay? This issue of MLE has been on stands for a while I’ve just neglected to post it up. Its actually MLE’s last issue, which is cool that this feature made it before it was axed. This Aston Martin belongs RSC (Racing Sport Concepts) Tuning, a company based out of Miami that offers aero gear and performance accessories for a variety of high end luxury vehicles, as seen below. The aftermarket accessories that were added to the Aston were subtle, but gave the Vantage an aggressive look. Check out http://www.rsctuning.com for more info!

More New Stuff!

Got a call in the am yesterday, Ben from Wheels Boutique was on the horn, he asked me to come pick up his brand new Audi R8 which was just outfitted with a set of stunning HRE Wheels, and take some photos of it. Of course I agreed. What an attention grabber this thing is. Everywhere I went people were wondering what the hell it was that I was driving. A nice change to drive something sporty, other than my racing edition Toyota Tundra. And, in typical fashion, I’ve only posted a few wheel teaser shots. I should be finished with the set in a couple days.

360 Forged and www.warrenshimquee.com

In light of recent events involving an automotive wheel company that I used to work for, I think that this was the inevitable. I’ve recently teamed up with a more reputable wheel company based out of Miami, you may have heard of 360 Forged, if not stop browsing that knitting forum and get with it. I contacted Will Stern at 360 Forged and offered to help him with some rig shots. They had an impressive fleet of cars parked outside their kendall office including a super clean blue Chevy Corvette Z06 that is featured below. Will and I set up the rig and snapped a few shots while dodging work trucks that were leaving the construction site just up the road. It was definitely a good experience working with a photographer that actually knows what the hell they are doing. Photo credit and post processing is credited to Will Stern, check out his Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/360forged/.

inspiration

I came across a current issue of ESPN Magazine and I was a bit inspired by the cover photo. Of course, the Montreal Canadiens are a team that I hate with everything inside me, but I can appreciate the love and passion they have for the game. The article highlights Canadiens’ goaltender Carey Price who they claim is the lonliest man in sports due to his laid back attitude, even when the pressure is on from the media and fans, Price shows little to no emotion, which helps as he is front and center on one of the biggest stages in the hockey world.  Aside from the informative article on the Hab’s goaltender, the thing that really caught my eye were the stunning photos that were captured for the article. I’ve attached a behind the scenes video of the shoot and the cover image that was used in the issue, pick one up or check it out at your local bookstore, you wont be disappointed!

Lion Country Safari

I guess everything is turning into a drive through so you dont have to get out of your car to get what you want. This is the epitome of what I am talking about, which may quite possibly be the freshest drive through ever, the only difference is, you dont get fries and a drink with your order. Lion Country Safari is basically a drive through zoo, its a four mile course that goes through the middle of a giant animal preserve, so the animals are right up next to your car including the rhinos but excluding the lions unfortunately. After the drive through the main part of the zoo, they had a bunch of other activities that made us feel real old, including feeding giraffes which was an interesting experience. Check out some of the pics from our excursion.
