Winter is here…time to raise the car 3mm to clear ice.


Simple shot I took after taking my daughter to the park… (Hipstamatic via iPhone 4s)

Yes, the title is just for fun, I don’t raise it at all. Driving low in the winter isn’t really too much of a challenge. You just need to look out for accumulated ice that drops off from people’s wheel wells (you know, those gray/black blocks) ..other than that it’s quite simple. Low and slow is the way to go…

* Accomplishment* Liberty feature in SLC Magazine

The trip to Canada during hurricane Irene was a great success.  The crew left  a good impression on many including this new up and coming mag.  SLC magazine in Canada did a feature on the guys that were up there.  Letscongratulate Mike, Brett, Yudi, Aidan and J (no longer with us).

 

Seeing your car in print is a great feeling.  For those who drove over 8-10 hours to get north of the boarder, this makes the trip even more rewarding.  Keep it up.

Update: Ruben’s M45 wheel test fit

Not too long ago, you seen Rubens wheels for sale.  He is set on two wheels, the Luxury Abstract Grassor and the Grassor-C.  There are differences other than one being concave and the other not which is why it wasn’t a clear cut choice for him.  On this freezing cold day, we met up and did a few test fits at a half way point.  Rubens Jack will never be the same lol.

Check out a quick test fit we did with the Grassor.  You will have to wait and see what he ends up with, the size and options he chooses.

Shown in 19″ step.  They look tiny due to there being no tire and the car being on a jack.  I can’t wait to see what he decides on.

Liberty Garage: 040 Continued

The first stage in building a car is the planning.  When you have lots of different off the shelf parts to chose from, that can be somewhat of a challenge.  When there is nothing available at all, it takes intense brain storming.  Being that there is no after-market upgrades for this car besides grill’s and chrome trim, this stage took a lot more hair pulling and sleepless nights planning for my Deville.  Building a car with no support should be influential to those facing similar challenges with the vehicle they love.

I was originally planning to go with an old school vip feel due to the shape and size of the car (Junction Produce, Admiration, Fabulous, etc.).  While I respect that look it is just not what I want to drive around in 2012.  I am going in a modern vip direction (luxury sport) cause that is what interests me the most.  It is a lot harder to pull off especially with this type of car.  I get bored quick so big challenges keep me going like making an old mans pimp car into an aggressive sporty JDM vip style car with no parts readily available.

I’ll show you some of the ingredients but I can’t give you the whole recipe.  You just have to wait and see all of that.   Continue reading

For Sale: 19″ SSR Vienna’s

One of the good things about the Winter months out here is that we have a long time to think about the next season.  This is usually the time we make moves and stock up the amo for the Spring/Summer.  Max is ready to sell his wheels and plans to change things up for the next year

19×8.5. 19×9.5  The windows are done in black and the entire wheels have been refinished not too long ago.  Text or call him to negotiate.  He is asking for $2,100 (spent that on the refinish alone).

Hall of Fame 2011: Rob/Bobby “PhillyGS”

At Black 2, we announced the 2011 Liberty Hall of Fame members who helped pave the way for what we are today.  This one was a no brainer.  Philly was chosen to accept one of the awards.

 He should have been chosen last year.  There are many rumors on how our crew got started but let me tell the true story that less than a handful of members can relate to.
