Eric’s 240SX – S3 Magazine!

Well – it’s been about 6 months since I’ve shot Eric’s 240SX and it has finally made its way to print in S3 Magazine! I’m super stoked – for Eric to get his whip into a magazine and for my shots to go into print! The only other shot I ever got into print was in Import Tuner years ago of Terence’s S2000.

I was pretty anxious to finally see it so I went by the shop to meet Eric and pick up a copy. I wish I had my camera with me because his car was on the hoist and pretty much in pieces – new wheels, new aero, more body work, and some fresh paint coming again. I’m hoping that this time, I get the chance to shoot it while it’s still fresh – not that there was anything wrong with shooting a torn and battered version because it was definitely different than what I usually shoot.

Anyways – here’s some shots of the print – if you guys happen to come across any S3 magazines – make sure to cop it and let me know where you find it! I’m also excited to finally post all the pictures from that shoot since we had to keep it under wraps until now.

And the last page. Let’s move onto all the shots from the two nights… The burnout shots come from round 2 of our shoots. I’ll start there.

Trouble starting the car since it was pretty much ready to be put away for the winter last year…

Finally got it started and we were off…

Got to the point where any shot after this was basically nothing but red lights from his brakes.

Rollers! Love the way the wheels just shine.

This is probably one of my favourite rolling shots ever. Just turned out so awesome – the wheels looks wicked.

Stitched up.

Cracked rear over fenders from all the drifting. He’s got new ones coming…

Wherever we went, you would just hear the car scrape like it was nothing lol. It hurt me inside but I’m sure it’s normal for Eric..

Some quick drifting around in an empty lot

Again – that’s how low it is everywhere.

More of his lip was missing by the time we shot it the second time lol

Cold as F that day… exhaust smoke…

Twin shot. I also loved this shot. This would make a good canvas. If only I was rich I would make a canvas out of all my favourite shots of each car I shoot.

Night time rollers. All Wangan-esque.

FINITO!

Anyways – congrats to Eric for building a sick 240 that really gets used the way it’s built and intended for. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to shoot it and getting it into print!
