Welcome back to the pages, PASMAG fans. We hope you're enjoying the summer months as much as we are over here!
We know a lot of you spent many months getting your cars ready for all the fun show or track season has to offer, and we’ve been loving the results, so in this issue we’d like to showcase some of the hard work we've been watching you guys put in!
As you may already know, our Tuner Handbook series began as a way to showcase some of the coolest DIY work we found each year, as well as to prepare you guys for track driving. The Style issue, as you may have guessed by the name, is all about the most stylish builds, trends, and products in the automotive industry. For this special issue, we’re going to blend DIY season-prep with stylish touches to include both!
We start off with the Buyer’s Guides so often associated with season prep: Tires, Car Care, and Oil & Lube. Once you’re ready to roll, we can jump right into the track-ready action with a feature on Matt Field’s Formula DRIFT Corvette, and on the show-ready side we take a look at two Mazda RX-7 builds from Team Hybrid, which are sure to impress - no matter how you like your RX-7. Speaking of Team Hybrid, there’s a special celebratory feature of their recent 25th anniversary in here as well!
A few years ago we picked an Editor’s Choice award at a Fitted Lifestyle show, and the winner of that award is finally here for his feature. You may have noticed it on the cover - Farid Nurmohamed’s awesome Lexus IS300 gets the full breakdown in these pages, walking the line between DIY goodness and Style points perfectly.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Style Issue without a bunch of new products to level up your ride’s style, and we’ve got that covered in a handful of buyer’s guides. Exterior, Interior, Engine Bay, Wheels, Suspension, and so much more - it’s all covered here! Be ready to fill up your proverbial shopping carts.
