Okay. I admit. Our website name is a little misleading. Some of you probably came to this site expecting a stance focused site. Well..in the beginning maybe we had that intention. However, as we developed our voice, it became more apparent that we wanted to showcase the global car culture.
From time to time, yes we feature some clean stanced out rides, but we wanted to create a site for clean photography, rides, and sophisticated styling. To us, that is what fitted is all about. You don’t necessarily have to have a cambered out ride just to rock Fitted Life, but if you own a clean piece of automotive history, well my friends that’s more than enough.
NorCal’s monthly EuroSunday event housed some of the most fitted rides we’ve seen. Their cars might be not be slammed, hugging the Earth’s surface, or even rocking super low offset, but one thing for sure is that the attendees are car people just like us. They share that same passion that we find whenever we spot a rare auto or feel that adrenaline rush upon hearing an F1 car at full throttle. It’s the small things that count, that really connects us across the globe.
Last weekend, I made it to the last 30 minutes of the first EuroSunday meet of 2011 and luckily enough for me, there were plenty of clean cars. This time around, I took a classy approach to the meet and decided to rock a blazer, button up polo, and tie. Woot. Though I ended up being overdressed. haha. But needless to say, I think from now on I’ll be repping that fitted look at meets from time to time.
Lots of neat Ferraris came out to the meet such as a 360 Modena and the F430. Though I haven’t been a huge fan of the 360 Modena, the F430 was one of those cars that I’ve always dreamed of owning..until the 458 Italia came out. haha. But! Nonetheless a Ferrari is a Ferrari. Unfortunately, since I made it out to the meet so late, the Ferrari crew was first to leave and I wasn’t able to shoot the F430s sitting clean at the lot. However, I did capture a F430 sitting clean waiting at the exit.
Aside from the Fezzas stealing the spotlight, there was a nice Jaguar for sale. Yea pretty random..but it looked so clean. I really enjoyed the headlights and the aggressive front end. I didn’t get the exact model of the car, but it ran around $80,000.
There were also some clean BMWs running about at the meet. I wasn’t able to shoot them all, but I managed to scope this one rolling on BBS wheels. The build wasn’t over the top, but clean indeed.
But, I think one of the most memorable cars at the meet was this Porsche 934. When I saw that car the quote, Haters gunna hate, kept refreshing in my mind. I mean, just look at this car. It’s calling out to the haters. It looks wicked, yet I know some close-minded people would bash on this car like no other. I on the other hand, was quite impressed at it. At some points, it reminded me of the RWB Porsches of Japan.
A couple of 2008 Porsche GT3 RS were out at the meet as well. These are always nice to see out and about. I had a chance to talk to the owner of the white one and he told me that the side GT3 RS stickers alone came out to be $150. Damn! Pretty crazy pricing, but it’s a monetary figure I wouldn’t be surprised coming from Porsche.
As it neared 11AM, everyone was rolling out and some late comers were just rolling in. However, there was this one little classic that caught my eye. It was a classic Ferrari, though at the moment, I have no clue what model it is. I’ll be doing my research and seeing what I can dig up on this car. Tune in to Fitted Life for a future post exploring what this Italian classic is all about.
