The first time you hold an event in a new location, there is always the concern of if the fans will enjoy it and, more important, will they show up? Those fears were allayed for Shift-S3ctor and Revvolution as more than 3,000 spectators poured through the gates at the inaugural Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack by OB Prestige Auto. Featuring half-mile roll race and trap speed competitions, we knew it would attract a lot of attention–not only from the spectators, but also from enthusiasts and the race community as well. With over 90 competitors (per day) averaging more than 750 hp, we knew this was going to be a killer event.
What started out as an idea, gradually spiraled into something amazing. We picked a set of locations and assembled our small team of automotive photographers and videographers known as #TeamRevv and set out on an adventure. From Los Angeles to San Diego and finally to Las Vegas, we documented our experience along the way. This is the story behind what went down at the first of many ModLife Tours. The people we met, the cars we shot and the places we went.
It all started out as a simple idea; an idea that would spiral into something amazing. We picked a set of locations that were easily accessible, assembled a small team of automotive photographers and videographers known as #TeamRevv, and set out for an adventure. What was originally an idea focused on capturing original, exclusive and exceptional content has morphed into something more along the lines of a social experiment. An experiment where the subjects aren’t just highly modified cars, but also the personalities, the locations, the crews, the meets, the nightlife and the car culture at large. The way we capture this experiment is what makes it unique. The photography and film that allows us to pass on our experiences. Welcome to the first #ModLife Tour. The first of many.
We focus on where we like to spend the majority of our time with any car⎯the interior. Our initial impression of the Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S found many similarities in platform, performance and even styling, but the interior trim between the two cars does offer up some key differences.
When we received an invitation to attend a private Old School meet, sponsored by SNTRL and Nostalgia Imports in Edgewater, New Jersey, we jumped at the chance. Many heavily modified imports competed for our attention, but we managed to focus on a vehicle that represents one of our future series highlighting the Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) scene in America. While there was no shortage of premium imports, one classy 1983 KE70 Toyota Corolla seemed the perfect specimen.
