Shown Daily: Nissan Cube

by Trent

This is the feature that didn’t want to happen. CAMautoMag is based in Utah, but we travel to California frequently. This time, the trip was anything but normal. First of all, we were in the wrong town thanks to our over-reliance on Google Maps. We were a mere two-and-a-half hours away from where this Cube was actually located. Since we were in the wrong place, our planned spots went out the window. Then when we got to the correct location, the weather decided to turn to mush quickly. We improvised a spot, but the force of the wind wanted to throw the light stands to the ground and one did fall…in a puddle of water. Then the batteries on the camera and lights decided to pack up since it was too cold to work consistently. But, in spite of all of that, the Cube was ready to take on all challengers. Whether it’s the mean streets of L.A. or the equally as competitive show circuit, this Cube shines.

The CAM Journal – B.W.G. – Brushes with Greatness

by Mustangjohnny

I seem to have always been lucky to be in the right place at the right time. Even if I do not realize it at that time. I have been to many Champ Car races, ALMS, Trans Am, SCCA, Grand Am, NHRA, SEMA, and many other opportunities to meet great people. With this series of articles, I will not bore you with stories of standing in a long line to shake Chip Foose’s hand and click a picture, yet I will entertain you with amusing stories of funny encounters with famous race drivers and Automotive Pioneers. For the first edition of B.W.G. (Brushes With Greatness) I will spin the tale of a impromptu lunch I had at SEMA several years ago. (more…)
