Hurricane Irene Aftermath

We like to thank everyone for the support.  Luckily, none of our families, homes and cars were affected by the hurricane that hit.  Some say, it was over-hyped while others say they just lucked out.  Mayor Bloomberg of NYC did a great job evacuating people and providing shelter for those who were in the low-rise areas.

Ty was suppose to go to Import Fest in Canada.  He had his room booked and his car ready with a couple spare wheels in the back.  He also had to pull an all-nighter to do some last minute repairs in order to get there safely.  With the TV and newspapers covering nothing but the potential hurricane, he had to put his priorities in check.  Being a family man, he chose to stay home to be with his kids in case anything was to happen.

While we would of loved to have the car up north supporting us at the show, no one in the crew is arguing that he made the right decision.  Had this tree in the picture feel on his car, it would have felt like the movie Final Destination since he stayed home to keep himself, family and car safe.

Hurricane Irene

Right now, many Liberty members on the east coast are faced with the serious threat of a natural disaster, Hurricane Irene.  For many living in NYC along the island coasts, flooding is inevitable.

 The largest mass transit system in the world has shut down and evacuations in some parts were ordered by the mayor (first time in NYC history).  Threats of extended power outages have left all the super markets empty.  Pray for us, our families and our cars.

First Look: 2013 Lexus GS

The Lexus GS has been the most influential car in the US VIP scene.  I can make a bold statement saying that if it wasn’t for the second gen GS, the style would have never taken off the way it did in north America. The car also took Lexus to new heights as the 2GS sold an unprecedented amount of mid size luxury sedans from 98-05.  After that success, the third gen had enormous shoes to fill.  Going from Lexus’ best selling model to worst selling one would classify that attempt as a failure.  It’s now time to destroy and rebuild and start over with a new model.

After seeing the LF-GH concept live in NY, I couldn’t wait to see the toned down production version.  There are things I really like about this model but for the most part, it leaves me wanting more. Continue reading

Liberty Blog 2.0

The blog is just over 1.5 years old and we have come a long way since the early days.  From the way our cars evolved to the addition of all our new members, there was always something new happening.  Despite all that, we never changed our layout since the first week the blog has been up.  We felt that it was now time for a new look over our old Halloween colored theme.  What changes were made?

  • Bigger pics!
  • Addition of the blogroll which consists of our friend’s blogs
  • Sponsor links
  • Bigger pics!!!!!
  • Members Tab on the top
^Look how big this displays over our old pics found below.  This is my favorite part of the new look.  You no longer have to click on the pics to see them in a decent size.

We look to soon add an automated store with inventory.  Other than the header which will be changed back to our logo, what do you guys think of the new layout and additions?

A Fresh Batch of Liberty Plates Hits The West Coast

In a recent post we noted that the West coast guys were missing something. . .

Well not anymore.  We got a few more in transit going all over the place from Toronto to Italy.

Kevin didn’t have to earn his plate since he has been with us since day one.  He just never asked for one until recently.  The car looks much better already

LIBERTY GARAGE: 007 continued

I said previously that I was waiting for the new Bentley GT to come out to get its headlights.  Well it didn’t come out last year as I thought it would, it is just coming out now.  The car hit dealers about a week ago.  It was important that I had the measurements of the lights before I went out to order them.  Being a brand new $190,000 car, that task is easier said than done.

Luckily my friend/teammate Sam from Minnesota was able to get the measurements for me.  He went out of his way to get this done so I thank him very much.
