Mar 12, 2014
In 2010, I had a crazy idea to start my own automotive blog. Four years later, I'm still blogging and covering car shows. Although it hasn't been easy, I'm still here. This year, I plan to remain injury free (I learned that trying to blog with a concussion isn't fun), but most importantly, I'll be attending some great car shows. Aside from some car shows in Atlanta, I have my eyes on covering car shows in Miami, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and of course..... I have to go back home to New York.
To honor Doing Donuts With Bernie's fourth anniversary, I wanted to recap the top 10 blog posts based on pageviews with some updated captioning.
10. All Black Everything... A Chevy Avalanche by CarTunes of Atlanta and Butler Tire.
2014 is the final year of the Chevy Avalanche. Thankfully one of the owners of an Avalanche decided to bring it to the guys of CarTunes of Atlanta and Butler Tire. Honestly speaking, I'm not a fan of pickup trucks. Never have been, never will be. However, this particular Avalanche looks great.
9. Young Dro's Cadillac Escalade EXT
Grand Hustle rapper Young Dro customized one of his vehicles- a Cadillac Escalade EXT. His purpose was to make his Escalade stand out as much as he could... and he did. Not only did he change the chrome trim to rose gold, he added Asanti Wheels, an Asanti Grille with his logo in the middle, and added his name on the truck. I haven't seen Dro in a looooonnnnngggg time, so I honestly don't know if he still has the Escalade.
8. Dub Magazine Releases Their 2012 Car Show Schedule.
The shows already happened with a lot of success. However, if you're wondering if the 2014 Dub Car Show tour will be coming to a city near you, well check out their updated schedule by clicking here. P.S. I wonder what ever happened to The Situation.
7. Just When Justin Beiber Was Doing So Well...
Atlanta's newest resident, Justin Beiber, did the most tragic thing and purchased a Smart Car and customized it. The customizations look great, after all West Coast Customs did it, but it was done on a Smart Car. Why????
6. Kim Kardashian's Serious "Kar" Game.
This was a complete breakdown of Kim Kardashian's White Range Rover Sport Supercharged that Platinum Motorsports customized. It looked great, I wished the customizations were taken a step further with the interior instead of leaving it stock.
5. Shop Review, Reme Designs of Long Island, NY.
My first shop review, and I decided to go back to home to Long Island and interview one of the most well known (and respected) customizers. Since then, Reme has decided to reunite with his former boss, Will Castro, and now he's back at Unique Autosp-- I mean-- Unique Designs.
4. Interesting Customization: Justin Beiber and his Chromed Out Fisker Karma
This was the beginning of a big customization trend- having your car wrapped in chrome. Since then, the colors of the chrome have expanded, but the trend has died down. Seriously- it's hard to photograph a chrome vehicle outside, with the sun bouncing off the car
3. Darth Vader's Ultimate Car by West Coast Customs
Lucas Films requested West Coast Customs to customize a VW Jetta for Darth Vader's. This episode of Inside West Coast Customs is one of their most popular shows yet.
2. Wide-Bodied Dodge Challenger Courtesy of Forgiato Wheels
Very popular post, and how can you not love a Dodge Challenger with a wide body kit on Forgiato wheels?
And the number one post....
Tragic Customization: Snooki's Cadillac Escalade EXT
I'm so happy Snooki sold it. My opinion on this Escalade hasn't changed...
Here's to another year of Doing Donuts With Bernie!!!! Thank you for reading and there will be more to come...
