Tuner Evolution Philadelphia 2015 KCImage PASMAG Lead

The roof! The roof! The roof is on fire! Tuner Evolution’s annual Philadelphia event was hot! In fact, it was so hot outside that a bush caught fire in the parking lot of the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center, which meant everyone, excluding fire marshals, had to wait outside for a brief moment. The heat outside carried inward onto the show floor where we witnessed some the best modified vehicles on the East Coast, live DJs and performances, a B-Boy competition, a handful of prize giveaways, models, celebrities and a bikini contest. There were a few dozen vendors on display, of which were Blockstar, Eagle One, FAST of West Chester, Nine 1 Forged, Performance Bodega, Rotiform and Toyo Tires. These combined resulted in a massive attendance of over 5,000 spectators and about 350 cars!

On top of that excitement, the car show competition was judged by eJudged, a streamline judging process that uses a mobile app to calculate votes in real-time. With instant results, it was Rick Fontan’s BMW M3 that came away with Best in Show. Between the Flossman widebody kit, the 20-inch SP1s, Vortech supercharger and the unreal Focal audio setup, it’s not hard to see why he came away with the win.

The PASMAG Tuner Battlegrounds #TBGLIVE competition was out in full force with some serious contenders, too. The top qualifiers were John Perez (1993 Mazda RX-7), Aleigh Hutzel (2014 Subaru WRX), Adam Baumel (2002 Audi TT) and Danny Hong (2006 BMW M5). With 62 percent of the popular vote, Perez’s father-son RX-7 was the victor! Catch his feature in PASMAG’s Performance Special Edition, on newsstands between October 2nd and December 31st.

Ladies-wise, Dannie Riel was the feature model, posted up in a huge booth with a backdrop to take pictures with fans. Jeri Lee, a Philly regular, hosted the bikini contest, which was taken by the crowd favorite Yelinice Lopez-Velez.

All in all, even with the minor emergency, Philly was a success. We had such a great time that we’re already planning to have more of us out there next year!

Street Fever 2014: Napierville, QC

Written by Jeremy Alan Glover | Photos By Jeremy Alan Glover Street Fever took place at the Nappierville Dragway on Sunday, August 10, 2014. Located on the South Shore of Montreal, it was the second "Fever" show of the year, an event that has something for everyone - a big Show and Shine, 1/4 Drag Racing and an Amateur Drift Competition. There were a lot of great cars from full-out show cars to your slammed/stanced rides. One of my favourite rides in the show was a wide body BMW 2002. It was super clean and mean looking!
