Growing up, I always dreamed of having a car that would be a blast to drive and still be a head-turner. The automotive scene should be about how you want the experience with your car to be like. Most get their enjoyment from driving dumped cars that get stuck going over speed bumps while others bask in pride by strictly only displaying their cars at shows. Then there are the few that really live out the purpose of the machines they’ve built.. and Paul with his Blue Bunny are a great example. His BRZ is beautifully built to show-car standards, but driven spiritedly as road car.

Theres something about watching two professionals surgically maneuver gripless vehicles while being just inches from eachother that many have a profound respect for. This Formula Drift season has been an exciting one. From Chris Forsberg sitting podium at every event, to Fredric Aasbo taking his first 2014 win in Round 4, its been an extremely competitive series this year and it could be anyones championship. Jared Cabral (@nor_east), Ivan Jimenez (@iamijp),and Matt Gaumont (@mgaumont) hit Wall Speedway to capture the most competitive east coast stop of the Formula Drift season.

As you saw in Randy’s 335 feature, its clear that cars on air aren’t just for show. So you thought Rizz’s car was a rarity? Think again. Patrick’s WRX is the nail in the coffin to anyone who thinks bags are just for groceries. This built EJ25 swapped pebble pusher is breaking hearts, and necks on the streets of Maryland.

Find me a nicer Accord in Mass. Better yet, find me one NOT on Vossens. Creativity in the Accord game is scarce, so when you see an 8th Gen surfin’ on Weds, it’s grabbing your attention. Aldrich isn’t a showoff by any means but you sure cant tell by his car. Simple, yet aggressive, Aldrich’s Accord is a definite neck breaker and he has even more planned for this already impressive street sweeper.

There’s a bit of segregation in this scene. On one side you have the function guys; the ones who love the raw thrill of driving. On the other hand, you have the show crew who appreciate the aesthetics and customizability of cars. Now, the majority of people feel that a car on air suspension cant perform well on a track. Normally I would agree, up until recently when I saw a bagged STI outperform others on the track. So is there a happy medium? Ask Randy. The BMW 335 is no slouch out of the box but Rizz had big plans for his Barbera Red coupe. With a handful of bolt ons, this power happy N54 power plant is pushing more than enough for some spirited driving, all while sitting on Bag Riders air suspension. Best of Both Worlds? You decide.

This was the 4th year that BeastCoast has attended Staggered, and it was the best one thus far. The number of awesome cars in attendance was almost overwhelming. The BeastCoast team came out full force, and had an amazing time. We’re all excited for the next Staggered event, though this one will be hard to top. Here’s a selection of our favorites from Staggered 2014.
