PASMAG 2016 Honda Accord+ // The Accord+ project was a collaborative effort between Honda Canada, PASMAG, and a handful of carefully selected partners.

Ikeda Masataka's 1983 Toyota Sprinter Trueno (AE86) // At first glance, the Panda 86 is somewhat unassuming, and it’s not until you take a closer look that you begin to understand the quality of craftsmanship involved. Ikeda-san stripped the car right back and worked from a bare-metal shell, slowly but…

The second generation of Chevrolet’s Camaro is an iconic car to many, including Chevrolet, but you would be hard pressed to find someone who would sing praise of this car more than Miro Pavletic. Having longed to build a second-gen Camaro for most of his life as a car enthusiast, he didn’t just jump into the build process on a blind leap of faith. The murderous machine you see before you is the result of detailed planning and a vision that went overboard, brought to fruition by people who know damn well what they’re doing. The end result is a…

Captain America: American Independence At New Heights

The words “dually” and “slammed” are not frequently found in tandem with each other, much less on the same truck, but the folks at American Force aren’t exactly the conventional builder type. When the industry leader in the off-road forged wheel category branched out into American muscle applications for the 2015 SEMA show, they needed an equally impressive rig to tow that project into the show. Enter the Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD LTZ dually. To show off their sports car line of wheels, American Force’s team chose the quintessential badass American sports car: A bright red Corvette Z06 – a white…

A One-Of-A-Kind Build Between Father And Son. In a social landscape that rewards quick builds and outward appearances, it can be hard to keep focus of what is really important when building something: yourself. When putting in your time and your money, at the end of the road, the outcome of that build should appeal to you. Building something that reflects your style and tastes has become a bit of a lost art in a time when doing something big, and doing something first is seen as the most “groundbreaking” to those in the “scene.” This is exactly why the…
