With our extreme love for the low, loud, and sometimes quite different, our Slam’d scene tends to devote a good deal of passion towards the misfits of automotive society. We are out there to ensure there are cases of breathtakingly gorgeous sheets of metal stretched wide over expertly modified chassis, doused in gallons of pearlescent paint, all slung just inches above the pavement for your daily viewing pleasure. However, for every nigh-perfect Continental or Coupe De Ville, exists at least two Toyota Tacomas throwing sparks down the freeway in a manner which most people would not be caught dead doing, at which we smile with equally fervent reverence. Despite out unique tastes and “High Class, Lowlifes” monicker, by which we stand firmly, even we prefer the scent of some high class and high livin’ from time to time.

The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering

In the world realm of automotive enthusiasm, there are many stages and many genres to suit our personal preferences and checkbooks. There also exists plenty of enthusiasts who can’t always crossover the two; those who love what they cannot afford as well as those who can afford far more than which they love. There exists a number of widely desirable cars for many types of enthusiasts from the 5-10K dollar range and as price goes up, the pool of available models seems to shrink down. Many of us assume that Ferrari and Lamborghini models, are the upper-echelon of car enthusiasm, however there exists a step much higher, or perhaps deeper, depending on your view of the matter. For the ultimate consumer or collector, privy to the highest of price ranges, exists the world of classic collector cars, in particular those of european production (which we’ve included a few samples).
