Default Need some cars for Photoshoots (Book Cover + Modified Mag)

Hi guys. Quick little intro - my name is Mike Maez from Modified Mag. A few of you might know me as I am around the AZ240SX scene a lot and photograph a lot of local cars. I am also the West Coast Editor of Modified Magazine and a freelance photographer. The reason for this post is two fold. I need a couple cars for a book cover photoshoot and thought that this would be the best place to ask. The book will be based on an STI/EVO shootout and I would ideally like a blue 06+ STI for the cover. It does not need to be heavily modified; in fact if it appears somewhat stock that wold actually be better.

The other reason I am posting is the fact that I am looking for local cars to feature in our "Driver Training" section of Modified Mag. What this entails is basically our race driving instructor, Mike Speck from Bondurant, meets with you at the track and does a light hearted evaluation of your car. The purpose is to gauge real world tuning setups from you our readers. There will be no flogging and beating on the cars (unless you request it) and everything is arranged with only what you are comfortable with. There is no timing, no G-meter testing, etc - just a driving evaluation. In return you get 3-4 pages of press in Modified Mag and who knows, maybe it can turn into a full feature.

If anyone here is interested or would like to get in touch please PM me or shoot an email over to mike AT mikemaez.com.

Thanks guys!

Hello Mike, my name is Drew Brashler. I drive a lot of track days, and my car is not "fast" as in a HP sense, but being a 2.5RS and still being able to hang with faster cars, I figure my car is fast for what it is. The car is fairly stock in the engine bay excluding a exhaust and a crank pulley. All of my modifications are in the suspension area, Ksport Rally Coilovers, 20mm Rear Sway, Fender Braces, Front and Rear Strut Bars, and some various bushings in different spots.

I am planning on putting a full FIA rally cage in the car in Feb. and my wagon will turn into the track/rally car. So if you guys are looking for something like that, someone with a normal car on a normal budget I feel that I would be a good candidate.


My driving credentials are:
HPDE2 driver (about to go to 3 says the leader).
1.5 years of co-driving for Rally America and NASA Performance Rally.
And a bunch of rally-x and auto-x experience.
Primitive Rally Driving School


Here are some photos of my car that I took for you to get a sense of what the car is:

2005 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS Wagon:












If it helps, I also already have a firesuit, HANS device, and helmet.

I will PM you my contact information if you want to get a hold of me. Thanks for your time, and I hope to be able to work with you guys.


Cheers,
Drew Brashler
