The Staff

CAM stands for Cars And Modifications because we love modified cars. CAMautoMag was started by Trent and Mike, friends who have always had a passion for cars no matter what type of car it is. From Honda to Koenigsegg, they love it. We want to share our passion for modified cars with you by bringing you the latest and greatest modified vehicles.

Trent Bray: Co-Founder, Webmaster, Photographer, Videographer, Editor, Writer, Event Coordinator

Trent began his obsession with cars at a very young age, but he first started modifying with his go-kart at age 13 trying to make it faster and different. Now a car doesn’t pass through his hands without being modified. He recently spends most of his time over at Centerstar Marketing.

Michael Chandler: Co-Founder, Photographer, Writer, Event Coveragemike chandler

My name is Michael Chandler, and I am the Director of Photography. What that means is I shoot most of the photos, from features to track days. I’ve been a car guy since I started talking, and I’ve been shooting photos seriously since high school.

Johnny Northrup: Writer

Johnny has ALWAYS been crazy into cars. Always dreaming of the next project, he has a vision for each car he gets….sometimes it is a gift, other times a curse. Whatever the case he has a broad appreciation for all cars and would be very dangerous with a handful of money and a big garage. His weakness seems to be Sleepers and certain underdog cars that people sometimes make fun of, or have never heard of.

Nick Cherpeski: Northwest Photographer, Contributor

I love horsepower, shiny objects, the smell of burnt rubber, race gas, dead cow and beer. And getting my hands dirty on making things look better and go faster. And I love lamp.

Tommy Ratsapasith: Photographer, Contributortommyw00t

Always looking ahead with new projects in mind from owning a handful of imports to wandering the pits, Tommy’s passion for Sport Compact and Import cars have continuously grown over the years. A true enthusiast with a love for screeching tires and exhaust fumes, you’re sure to find him at the next event.

Dave Rawley: Photographer, Contributordave rawley

Dave is the kind of guy that will sacrifice his body for anything. Whether it be fixing the cooling system on an E39 BMW, or eating the hottest chicken wings known to man. He is also quick with the words and smarter than we give him credit for. Ask him about ANY engine swap/car combo and he’s probably already figured out the logistics of said swap.

Steve Best: Editor/Sales

Steve is our behind the scenes guy always making those sales. Someone has to make sure the bills get paid, right? He has a plethora of cars from an early Porsche 911T to a Nissan 240SX. He is always working on project cars.

Chip Kaffer: Editor/Sales

Chip is our newest sales guy, no idea if he’s any good yet(if you don’t make any sales by Friday, you’re gone Chip). But he has a history of cars dating back to before most of us were born. Sorry, it had to be said. But he is quite skilled at fixing grammatical mistakes.

Joey Harrington: Correspondent

DJ, meme provider, and resident JDM guru, Joey is our Jack of all trades.  Be it shuttling us around in his UCF10 LS400, or just having story ideas bounced off of him, Joey is always there when we need him.  He’s been promoted from unpaid intern to correspondent, but will still be treated as an intern

Gavin Pouquette: Track Day Contributor
