2012 SEMA Scion Media Preview

Each year, Scion holds a special media preview a week before SEMA to showcase some of the builds that will be at the SEMA show. With the launch of the Scion FR-S this year, there's already much pre-show hype about the car, and Scion plans to add to that. Three select tuners each were given an FR-S and $15k to build it for the annual Tuner Showdown. This year's competitors were Daniel Song from Los Angeles, John Toca from Chicago, and Chris Basselgia from Pennsylvania. In addition, a handful of top Scion partners were given cars to build that will also be showcased in the SEMA booth. Top tuning shop Evasive Motorsports, crazy showcase car experts Cartel Customs, the lifestyle brand Fatlace, and top cleaning product manufacturer Meguiars all also showcased their builds at the Smog Shoppe gallery in Los Angeles. Special thanks to Scion for including us in the preview, and we look forward to checking out all the cars at SEMA!

86FEST 2013: Fontana, CA

Written by Tom Stahler (Intro by Jordan Lenssen) The brainchild of Antonio Alvendia and Kevin Tidewell, the roots of 86FEST date back to the 1990s and the AE86. Back then, while most people in the car scene were attending car shows and import drag racing, Alvendia and his friends were competing in SCCA autocross. He owned a front-wheel drive Toyota, but soon noticed the fastest guys had rear-wheel drives, so he hunted down his first AE86 – a 1985 Corolla GT-S hatch with a factory LSD, and let's just say the rest is history. When the 86 platform was announced,…
