Engine: Spectra Cold air Intake and Breather Dumped Society, a group of car enthusiasts from Fort Lauderdale, was founded by car enthusiast Justin. He shared with us his desires for creating Dumped Society. He said: “After numerous attempts to show off our stuff on other websites & being told we were not up to their “standards,” we decided to go ahead & create a place where everyone can show off their rides with people that share the same passion. It doesn’t matter where you’re from, what you drive, or how many car features you may have; it’s about the fun and love for cars.”


SCIKOTICS Scikotics is the largest nationwide Scion Owners club, brought together by a passion for their cars. They are a free car club and these guys are all about having fun and showing off their creations. They welcome all Scion owners whether they have a fully custom ride or a stock daily driver. The various chapters have meets at least once a month & you can also catch them at local & national car shows with some of the most unique rides. This group also helps out the community when they can by helping to raise money for many charities throughout the year. Scikotics have over 50 chapters stretching across the United States. Definitely a car club that is here to stay.

Car: 2012 Scion tC RS 7.0 #94 of 2200. This ride is a limited production vehicle that Scion offered in High Voltage Yellow. Having the car for over 2 years, he has been modding it since day one with help from sponsors Nia Auto Design, OemAudio+,, theBakeBros Painters, TiltedAudio, and Danny has turned this tC into a real head turner. “I’ve always had a passion for cars since I was kid playing with Hot Wheels to collecting diecast cars. I’ve had a lot of influences in my build from friends to family to the JDM scene in Japan and seeing crazy builds for Sema from different aftermarket companies.”

Ali told us: “I went with a VIP style interior on my car because I’ve been a really big fan of the way they make the interior of any car go up to the next level! I enjoy taking my car to shows & people giving me compliments on the way my car appears to them! But at the end of the day i just love to get in my car & go for a drive and just admire all the hard work I’ve put into building my custom 2011 scion xB!!” And it shows!

“I had a mission to create the most luxurious style Scion xB around in the east coast. I wasn’t going to hold back from reaching my goal of creating a real show car. I chose this brand because I loved the boxed shape and liked how Scion influences its owners to modify their cars. I’ve always loved the box design. That’s when i came up with Boxed Lifestyle. It’s a group for all modified boxed vehicles on Facebook from xBs to Cubes, Elements, Souls, etc.” Some of Ricks sponsors include Classzio seat covers, Beat Sonic &





1931 Model A K3 Projekt Rat Rod Some may see a rusted piece of junk while others see a statement being made. A Rat Rod is a style of hot rod that exaggerates the early hot rods of the 40s-60s. Not to be confused with the closely related traditional hot rod, a period-correct restoration of a hot rod from the same era. Rat rods appear unfinished or rusty with what some call mother nature’s paint job. The interior of the rat rod is designed to be operative but without many comforts to the occupants. Despite some criticism, the rat rods have become widely accepted in custom car culture.


Yes it’s a Hyundai


“What type of car is that?” or “Is that’s a Hyundai!?” These are the most common questions faced to James, the owner of this sick 2013 bagged Hyundai Genesis Coupe. About a decade ago, KDM cars were not that popular in the North American import scene. Korean cars were thought to be cheap and the models did not appeal to the younger crowd. Fast forwarded to now. Hyundai has put out a great line up and is a very respectable brand. With his second generation Genesis, James has put his spin on his Hyundai transforming it into his very own JDM killer! He is pushing 300 horses with a Manga Flow Full Exhaust, and Short Ram Injen intake. Stopping all those horses is a set of Brembo brakes and 255/35 BF Goodrich tires, wrapping the 19x9.5 19x10.5 +22 Varrstoens 2.2.2 rims. Body mods include front lip, vis carbon fiber hood, truck and diffuser, and AirREX airbags to lay this eye candy on the ground.


Wide Load If there was a record for the one person that has gone to the most car shows in two different countries, Tim would get it hands down! In the summer you can catch Tim cruising the streets of Ontario, Canada or winter time in South Florida headed to a car show in one of his 30 plus rides. Tim is a big car collector but an even bigger philanthropist! His “Tim and Brenda’s Place Annual Cruise for the Cure” car show has raised over $200,000 for prostate cancer in past few years. Tim showed off his two wide body rides for Klutch Customs both built by Wide Body Kings, TS Designs in California. His red on red British beast, a Bentley GT Coupe sits nice on 22” Forgiato Designo and his American muscle Phatzo, a white Twin Turbo Convertible Camaro SS sporting 24” Forgiatos with an 11 inch lip 24X15 on the rear.

Red British Beast - Bentley GT Coupe


White Twin Turbo Convertable Camaro SS

These rides are pushing over 600 horse power! Tim likes to buy his cars already custom built. For instance, Summer 2012, Tim walked into the Miami Beach Convention Center for a car show (in which he had his own cars on display) and spots the Camaro. Tim knew he had to have it and the rest is history. A few months later he also snatched up the Bentley GT which happened to be sitting right next to his Phatzo Camaro at the same car show. Tim is definitely a major player in the car game.


ALL WRAPPED UP You wont catch Tate Design & Fabrication up on some big billboard on the highway or spot him in flashy ad campaigns. He doesn’t need the publicity because if you’ve seen his work, it speak for itself. This shop is one of the premier custom wrap shops in South Florida but it doesn’t stop at just wrapping cars, they do other custom work as well. Owner James Tate decided to take a chance and step out on his own when he opened up his shop and that chance certainly paid off. Tate has humbly worked on many cars & theres a good chance you’ve noticed these beautiful rides on the streets. Here are just a few example of the vast array of cars Tate has blessed the car game with.

We headed to Miami to kick it with a fresh new spot called “The Shop Customs Inc.” and chopped it up with owners Sebastien & Raiko. With a good state of mind and a positive head on there shoulders, it wont be long before they will start making noise in South Florida’s car world. These guys are also heads of Exquisite c.c., an impressive car crew, accepting of all makes and models. They showed off some of their rides


The Gathering of the Giants Tattoo Convention & Lowrider Car Show was a great event for both car & tattoo lovers. Held at Miami-Dade County Fair & Expo, both car enthusiast and ink lovers got to enjoy the best of both worlds. Some of the illest tattoo talent filled the room and it showed as crowds of people gathered to get inked up by all the amazing artists. If getting jabbed by a needle wasn’t your thing, there was still a lot to take in such as the dope cars on display thanks to custom shop Bowtie Connections, South Florida based car clubs USO, 25th Street Riders, Low Lyfe as well as a few others.
