Slam’d Holiday Guide: The Stuff You Really Wanted For Christmas

Through the holidays our rides and projects tend to take a back seat to the rest of the family and they sit in the garage or shop neglected; dusty and forgotten. Well have no fear, Slam’d Mag has the cure…



Show Report Australia: Wrong Turn Cruise 2014

“Straya” (Australia, our minitruckin’ brothers and sisters from down under) has really grown in the custom truck scene over the last ten years or so. One of the country’s hottest shows now takes place on the Northeast coast in…

Not every project car needs to be a top-shelf Ridler contender. As we get older, sometimes we just want something to cruise around town in and to take the long hauls to car shows near and far. Something…



Eastern Block Oldskool: Germany’s Young, Wild, and LOW

You might think that the German car scene consists mainly of VWs, Audis, and Mercs (Mercedes Benz, not Mercurys) and though this may well still be true, there is a much different scene developing, a…



Labour Of Love: Nath’s 1997 Toyota Hilux – Australia

At first glance you might be forgiven for thinking that Nathan’s truck is just a nice example of another Toyota Hilux in Australia – you “might” be forgiven. Such is the beauty and well executed simplicity of this build…



Shutter Speed: A Mobile Automotive Photography Exhibit
