In March of 2005, I attended the New York International Auto Show press days as a photographer representing DubSpeedRacing.com. While there, I not only got to feast my eyes on some of the most exotic and beautiful cars in the world, but I also met a lot of leaders in the automotive industry. I had a nice discussion about the upcoming Porsche Cayman with the VP of Porsche Cars North America, as well as shared my words of praise towards Carol Shelby after he had proudly unveiled the new Ford GT500. It was a blast to be at the show, to see the cars, and to meet the people. Though, as the last press day was coming to an end, I ran into a driver who I never expected to meet. Read More

During our lifetime, we have dreams that one could only imagine turning into a reality. When these opportunities present themselves, we embrace them as they become an imaginable reality. One such opportunity did occur for my wife and me as we were fortunate enough to attend this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Read More

With new SUVs being announced on what seems to be a weekly basis these days, it’s hard to keep up with the market’s newest offerings. But don’t let the marketing departments of these brands hear you call their vehicles SUVs. They are now SAVs, SUTs, SATs, “Lifestyle” vehicles, crossover vehicles, and Cute-Utes. As if that weren’t bad enough, the manufacturers seem to be naming their SUVs by putting alphanumeric characters into a hat and randomly drawing. You have the QX56, the B9, the MDX, the XL-7, the ML55, the SRX, the X5, the X3, and on and on and on. How are you supposed to know what kind of vehicle these seemingly random names represent? Are they large or small vehicles? Are they rugged or are they glorified station wagons with big tires? Who knows these days. Read More

Stop 9 of the DUB Supershow brought the tour to the Reliant Center in Houston, TX. The DUB crew rolled into Houston in a grandios manner, complete with three of the most blinging 18-Wheelers you’ll ever see. More than 15,000 spectators packed the 300,000 sq. feet center to see the car show and the concerts. Musical acts such as LIL’FLIP and Twista kept the crowd hoppin, and Super Model Vida Guerra was on hand in the Boost Mobile booth to sign autographs. Not surprisingly, the Boost Mobile booth had a line of patient spectators wrapped around it twice, just to get a glimpse of Vida. Debuting on the tour and on display in Houston were the DUB Edition Dodge Charger RT, DUB Edition Jeep Commander (Look for our Jeep Commander First Drive soon!), DUB Executive Stretch K300 Chrysler 300C, and the DUB Executive Stretch K500 Mercedes-Benz S500. As with every DUB Magazine event, celebrity cars were stars of the show with rides from The Game, Twista, 50 Cent, T.I., Shaquille O’Neal and many others.

Prancing horses and raging bulls graced this year’s Italian Concorso over looking Monterey Bay, California. Normally when you think of California, you are reminded by everyone that it’s always sunny. But that is not always true. When you live on the coast or have a beautiful concours show grace the Black Horse Golf Course, one would expect to have sunny skies. This year in the middle of August you found yourself with overcast skies and a jacket in hand as temperatures were in the middle 50’s all day long. Read More
