Scrapefest 2017

by Michael Chandler

Scrapefest is not the biggest meet of the year, but it’s growing.  From its humble beginnings at Sandy Station, it’s now dominating the Legacy Events Center in Farmington.  We spent some time at the meet, saw everyone crowding around the limbo contest, and left before the awards were handed out…  BUT we got a big ass gallery for you!  Check it out:

Court Appointed Pizza: The CAMcast

by Michael Chandler

HELLO, FRIENDS AND VIEWING PUBLIC!  We’re back with another episode of what I can only assume is the fastest growing automotive podcast on the east side of the Salt Lake Valley.  We’ve got a full crew, and a packed show for you:

  • Pizza Dad talks about Formula 1
  • Mike talks NASCAR fights
  • Everyone gets in on the dream inheritance, which gets us talking about E30 BMW’s
  • And we answer some listener questions, which has us talking classic racing

You can stream the episode below, download it here, or head over to iTunes.  We’d also appreciate it if you kept on spreading the good word of this here podcast.  We’d do the same for you if you had a podcast.  We’ll see you at NASA Utah Round 1, or Scrapefest this weekend!

80eighty Scrapefest Premeet

by Michael Chandler

While technically true, the 80eighty Scrapefest premeet was a full eight days before Scrapefest.  Weird?  YOU BET!  Well attended?  DAMN STRAIGHT!  There were a ton of cars in attendance, so many that some resorted to parking in the undeveloped lots near the 80eighty building.

There was a wide variety of cars in attendance.  Everything from clean, modern builds

To some classics

A pretty cool rat rod was there

And that was spitting distance from the R8 that Envision wrapped at Autorama.  Not for, AT.  While the show was going on.  Looks good.

And then there was this guy, who kept staring at me while I was taking pictures of his edgy-ass xB.

So kawaii it causes me physical pain…

Anyway, here’s a big gallery of some of the other cars that were there.  Saturday we’ll be at the track for the first NASA Utah event of the season, then up at Scrapefest on Sunday.

ScrapeFest 2014

Words and photos by Michael Chandler

On September 28, in the parking lot of Sandy Station, Salt Scrapers held their first ever meet.  Having “Scrapers” in their name, they naturally decided to call it ScrapeFest.  It was a meet celebrating all things stanced, slammed, flush and otherwise low.  All the familiar faces were there: David Arellano, Nik Preusser, Taigon Rider (you know that deep blue Datsun 260Z 2+2 with the white wheels and oil cooler?  That’s his) and Jenny Lou who was acting as one of the hosts.  I was still waterlogged from the day before, so I showed up late.  Despite that, I did snag some photos and I did secure a feature with the previously mentioned Datsun.  So without further ado, here’s the gallery:
