Instagram has become a great way for customizers to show off new projects that they've done, car shows they're at, or random things that they're up to. I'm getting my feet wet more and more with instagram, and it's a great way to show instant car show coverage of wherever I am. The last photo I've added on instagram was a photo of a Chevy Camaro's engine.
I follow some great people/companies on Instagram, so I'm going to show off some of their pics from yesterday. Hopefully I can keep doing the Carstagram review, because pic of the day is too hard. There's so many great cars to choose from.
My favorite wheel and tire company, Butler Tire (@butlertire), released a photo of a fully customized Hummer H2. Customizations include matte black wrap, custom Fuel Offroad Wheels, Toyo Tires, Rhino Lines bumpers and trim and full exhaust system.
Forgiato Wheel Company (@forgiato) released a photo of a gorgeous dual tone BMW X6. Not only is this X6 both glossy and matte, a Hamann body kit was added, and we can't forget about the Forgiato F2.16 ECL Wheels.
One of Miami's big three, Exclusive Motoring (@exclusivemotoring) released a photo of an Audi A7 with smoked lights, black roof and accents, and lowered the Audi and he's now wearing custom color matched 22" XO Wheels. If you're wondering which shops are included in Miami's big three, keep scrolling.
Orlando's own, Ultimate Auto (@ultimateautoboutique) posted a sneek peek of what they're bringing to SEMA (which is roughly 3 months away). Get to work guys, because I can't wait to see it.
Fellow female in this Automotive game, Aimee Shackelford (@petrolgirl) took a photo of a hot rod as she was at In and Out Burger. I discovered the greatness that is In and Out Burger on one of my trips to LA. They don't have it in the South, and definitely not in New York.
Wide Body King (@wide_body_king) posted this repost of Dub Magazine (@DubMagazine). I can't wait to go to the Dub Car Show in Anaheim because I honestly have respect and became a fan of Jae Bueno's work. I know the tribute will be as great as his work, and I know that his wife, Stephanie, will continue capturing the art of lowriders.
Another one of Miami's big three, MC Customs (@mccustomsmiami), released a collage of a Nissan GTR ($100,000 car before customizations) sitting on Vellano Wheels. MC Customs has the highest percentage of MLB players as their clientele (extremely smart. MLB has guaranteed contracts), and this GTR belongs to Florida Marlins' Jose Fernandez. P.S. MC Customs also customizes Robinson Cano's vehicles.
Cars of Atlanta (@carsofatlanta) FINALLY updated their instagram by showing off an Aston Martin Rapide that they changed the wheels and tires for. This Rapide is now wearing 22 inch Forgiato Maglia ECL brushed face, chrome lipped wheels wrapped in Toyo Tires. Can I just tell you how happy that they're actually showing off their work?
The final shop that rounds out Miami's big three... The Auto Firm (@theautofirm) shows off a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited that was converted into the first SRT8. From there, they replaced the engine, upgraded the transmission, full brembo brake system, full exhaust, 6" lift kit, custom SRT8 interior, Audison Hertz Sound system, led lights, full custom paint, body kit, AND it's sitting on Fuel Wheels. Thank goodness Alex isn't shy about showing off the great work that the Auto Firm produces.
Asanti Wheels (@asantiwheels) shows off a throwback photo of a fully customized Hummer H2 wearing my favorite wheels of all time, the Asanti AF143. Yes I like rims that look like flowers.
Savini Forged Wheels (@saviniwheels) posted a photo of an Audi S8 wearing their SV37-S wheels.
And rounding out the picture feed, Butler Tire (@butlertire) had a visitor yesterday, Block of Block Ent (@bigblockesc). Butler Tire has done a lot, if not all, of Block's vehicles- including that Camaro he's sitting on and his recently retired Caprice Cutlass better known as the Donkasaurus. Those color matched Savini's do look good.
