PASMAG Holley LS Fest 2017 Las Vegas 05

Holley LS Fest has become the go-to event for fans of GM’s high performance do-it-all LS engine platform. For 2017, Holley introduced an additional LS Fest event – LS Fest West on May 5th at the world famous Las Vegas Motor Speedway (LVMS) just outside of Las Vegas, Nevada! If an LS based (or current generation LT) engine is powering your ride or if you are considering a swap to LS power, this is your event! Race cars, street rods, muscle cars, trucks, late models, drift cars – you name it, if it is being powered by an LS there was something here for you!

Registered competitors took part in the drag racing classes, autocross, 3S Challenge, Show-N-Shine, Dyno Challenge, Road Course Challenge, Off Road Challenge and more. Our Las Vegas Contribtuor Rafael Leal was on-site to capture the exhibition style drift day on Sunday which took place on the 2.4 mile, 12 turn “Outside Road Course” portion of LVMS.

Tokyo Auto Salon: Japan

As I head into my 40’s, I’m reminded that not only does perspective matter but also experience. This will be my 12th year covering the Tokyo Auto Salon (and the third with PASMAG) and I’m happy to say it never gets boring, regardless of age. Sure, I’m a little wearier than I used to be but there’s a clean and pure energy to the biggest automotive show on the planet that hits you like a spirit bomb when you trudge down the cold corridors of the entrance and emerge within the frenzied and buzzing halls beneath. It’s impossible not to…

Nisei Week 2010

The JDM-specific Nisei Week show held in downtown LA is one of the best shows for Japanese car fans. The show is small consisting of a tight knit group of JDM enthusiasts who are reinventing how trends will develop. By definition Nisei Week is a cultural celebration of all of the first generation of Americans of Japanese descent (the Nisei) many of whom are car crazy! Last year we reported that the Nisei Week show was coming to an end at its 10th anniversay. However, The 11th annual actually happened and the show did not disappoint.The pictures speak for themselves…
