Joey Lee, from The Chronicles has worked for a handful of magazines and has seen first hand the effect that the automotive blog craze has had on the influential magazine companies of yesteryear. I personally think he hit the nail on the head when he chose the title, "We Failed You", because being in the car community for so long we start to forget about what was and for some still is the only outlet that catered to us as car enthusiasts and acted as a feeding tube for all our tuner needs.

I've been reading Super Street, Import Tuner, HCI, Modified Mag, Honda Tuning and PAS Mag since about age 11. I used to go through these magazines with a few of my close buddies, read features (look at models) and flip to the parts sections and basically build my dream car in my head (the gaudier the better). These magazines were a catalyst for an undying love that I still have to this day and probably wont ever lose.

Sad to see another one go, support print!

In an effort to stay " original ", and not get lost in the sea of trends and duplication. I've decided to change things up a bit and lean in the direction of a more universal moniker for what has grown as a small staple in the Texas car scene. With a new year, comes big changes and a whole new game plan. In the past years of business, I've felt that there was too much focus in pumping out content. So much focus on content that we ended up sacrificing what mattered most to us, quality.


There was no mission statement in mind when it came to the re-branding and recreation.

The photos below aren't necessarily a feature or event coverage, even though this photo-dump does in fact contain some photos from Slammed/Society Texas along with some other randoms that were snapped during my self proclaimed hiatus.

This is THE, Texas Collective.

Not sure who the owner of this car is, but this is definitely some nostalgia. Think this was shot early 2013, maybe late 2012.

We had a chance to catch up with Huy Nguyen recently to shoot his IS300 on his recently acquired set of CCW Classics. The car was also recently painted in this custom Grabber Blue color, it was a bright yellow before the transformation.



As you can see, he's made sure to pay attention to every little detail.

When you see a nice pair,make sure to say hello!

Things flow so well on this car, the window visors are a great touch.
