Laurie Starling Memorial Gathering 2015

One year on from the tragic loss of Australia’s Chop Shop owner, MotorEx and Street Machine Summernats judge, and Master Fabricator 29-year-old, there was a second Memorial Event held in Laurie Starling’s honor. This senseless…



Hot Import Nights Canada: HIN Hits Vancouver

Variety is, as they say, “the spice of life” and throughout my relatively short stint as an amateur photographer of automotive lifestyle both in North America and Australia I have been exposed to a fair bit…



Australia’s Finest: Michael Ellard’s 1992 Holden Rodeo

Game changer, epic, next level, show stopper – all fairly cliché words these that are carelessly thrown around these days but aren’t uttered too often around the Slam’d Staff editorial meetings. Our job AND our passion is diligently scouring the globe…



The Art of Low: Drive It, Show It, Track It

Here at Slam’d Mag we’re obviously all about that low-slung look and ground hugging appearance as our namesake gloriously states. However, being “slammed” isn’t always about laying frame or body and being lower than everyone else on the block…



Sadistic Dreams: Ryan Marsh’s 2013 Honda Accord EX-L

Shop Tour: Street Customs – The Netherlands’ Lowest

What better way to kick off our first full “International Issue” than an exclusive Shop Tour from halfway around the world? We got to visit with our buddies from the Netherlands to get an inside look at the custom euro scene with one of the few shops performing…



Built To Drive: The Dub Dynasty 1981 VW Caddy

The term “Caddy” resonates with a variety of automotive enthusiasts, but in various ways. For those of us here in “The States” we typically think of “Caddys” as a nice big-body Cadillac, while some of our European…



Manitoba Cran: Bent Hoitink’s 1953 Plymouth Cranbrook

Brent Hoitink from Manitoba, Canada knows just how to build a proper custom. When asked how long it took him to complete this radical Plymouth his answer was “off and on… a year.” Fifteen years ago Brent caved…



Whiskey Bent: Tim Molzen’s 1962 Dodge Sweptline Crew Cab

There’s no denying that Roger Burman is a legend in the automotive performance industry. If you’re a motorsports kind of guy then you probably know Burman from his amazing autocross builds, like the 1967 Camaro dubbed…
