CAMcast 198: The Post ISS Wrap Up

by Dave Rawley

It’s a solo Dear Leader episode today, because the ISS/Salt City Drift 2 Day took its toll on us.  ANYWAY

Mike thanks everyone who made the ISS recording happen, because the made it happen.  He also thanks everyone who came by, and who has listened to the episode. It really means a lot that you guys listened, or came by and said hi. You guys rule!

He also talks about the FCA-Renault megrer going bust on the same day an FCA big wig files a Whistle Lawsuit against FCA.  QUITE THE COINCIDENCE.

CAMcast 197: Live From ISS 2019!

by Dave Rawley

The fine folks at ISS thought it would be a good idea to let us record a live podcast there, and… we’ll let you decide about that.

Mike, Dave, Zack, and occasionally Joey run through some news briefly, while occasionally yelling at passers by and being interrupted by Pizza Occasional Guest and a kid on a mountain bike.  They’re then joined by Jerry Carson, live and in person, and his mom!

It was an awesome time, and we can’t wait to have another live episode!

ISS 2017: The Kinda Chilly-ing

by Michael Chandler

This past weekend there was either a car show, or the apocalypse.  All depends on how your social media saw the weekend’s storms.  I saw it as a car show, because at 8am (ish) I was in the parking lot of the Maverick Center watching the staff setup this year’s Import Spring Showoff.  Despite the previous day’s weather, a ton of people showed up for the show.  We saw a wide breadth of what the Utah scene has to offer.  There will be some highlights coming later, but in the meantime enjoy this gallery.

BEHOLD! A Van!

by Michael Chandler

ISS 2016 CAMautoMag Michael Chandler-136

Do you need to be deep in that VIP life, but also need to haul around kids, groceries, and other whatnot?  Well as the fine folks over at VANkulture have shown, vans can be gangster as hell.  And one such gangster van showed up to ISS.

ISS 2016 CAMautoMag Michael Chandler-3 ISS 2016 CAMautoMag Michael Chandler-2

This Honda Odyssey was sporting some Junction Produce neck pads for the driver and passenger, and a Recaro baby seat for… well, I’m assuming a baby.  Hanging from the wide mirror is a Tsuna know, and hanging from the OE rear view mirror is a Fusa knot.  Inside is some serious JDM hotness, but what about the outside?

ISS 2016 CAMautoMag Michael Chandler-1 ISS 2016 CAMautoMag Michael Chandler-137

Mmmm!  A set of WEDS Kranze LXZ wheels set off the exterior.  You don’t have to roll in a Lexus or an Infiniti to be VIP, sometimes you just need a van and a desire to let your inner gangster out.

It Plays: 2JZ FD

by Michael Chandler

ISS 2016 CAMautoMag Michael Chandler-17

ISS brings out almost everything, which is no surprise considering that it’s the biggest meet of the year.  A car we saw last year was Nick Hancock’s 2JZ swapped FD RX-7.  It wasn’t all the way there last year, but he took the year and buttoned it up.

ISS 2016 CAMautoMag Michael Chandler-16

The power plant is the same as it was a year ago: 2JZ with a big single turbo.  No need to mess with that winning combination.  See, we were drawn in by this Toyota motor in the Mazda chassis but Nick wasn’t quite ready for a shoot.  He was getting the car ready for paint, and well..

ISS 2016 CAMautoMag Michael Chandler-20 ISS 2016 CAMautoMag Michael Chandler-21

He didn’t paint it.  Instead, he too the car over to his friends at Utah Vinyl Worx for a matte white wrap.  Gone are the black bumpers and red everything else.  The FD looks amazing in white, and it can pull off a duckbill spoiler.

The interior also got a few touches.  Hopefully we can do a full shoot on this car soon, it’s been a year in the making.

Import Spring Showoff 2016

by Michael Chandler

ISS 2016 CAMautoMag Michael Chandler-10

Another spring, another Import Spring Showoff.  This year the show was massive!  I’m still a little out of it, got there hours before the show opened to slap some stickers on Nik’s Jetta, but I did manage to get the photos edited and uploaded.  Want to see them?  Here you go:

We’re Going to be at ISS This Weekend!

Jetta Sport Wagen CAMautoMag Michael Chandler 2014 (1 of 10)

Unfortunately Ronda won’t be there, but we’ve locked down a pretty sweet car to represent us: Nik Preusser’s Jetta Sportwagen.  He’s made some changes to it since last we saw it, and from what we’ve seen it’s looking really good.  We can’t wait for the show, and we’re stoked that Nik is going to be representing us this year!

It’s happening on April 10 at the Maverick Center.  We’ll be there, perhaps we’ll be bringing a car again.  You should go, because it’s one of the best meets happening in Utah.

Subiyotas!

ISS 2015-71

They pulled in together, they parked together, and they wandered around together.  Such is rolling into and attending a car show
