Chromjuwelen En Route: Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Dubai

The most stupid mistake you ever can make? Buy a typical "needs some TLC" and "runs and drives" car and hope it will take you from A to B. Ha – we just did that. Deliberately. In our case A is Los Angeles, B stands for Las Vegas. And the car is a 1964 Chrysler Imperial Crown. Mopar or no car.

We are in preparation for take-off. Our mission is to shoot another Chromjuwelen Road Movie. Destinations: Los Angeles (October 31 till November 2), Las Vegas (SEMA Show; November 3-6), Dubai (Dubai Motor Show; November 7-12). Motto: Continental Extreme.

If you are interested how far the Imp' will take us – or if wanna join us – just hook up on our Instagram, Tumblr or Twitter. Btw, we are still looking for car culture stories in Dubai (underground, drift, off-road). Unfortunately our contact to Dubai is broken down. If you have got a tip, just shoot us an email!

SEMA Show 2010: Photos, Articles and More

OK, SEMA is over. And we are already back in Germany. But it is never too late for ultra slammed mini trucks, imposing restomods and awesome hot rods. Just hit this link to see what we brought back. 

Some may have already seen our article ("SEMA Show Las Vegas 2010: Vorbildliche Kulturpflege") on Chromjuwelen.com. Our colleagues from autobild.de posted our coverage as well: "Tuning-Meisterstücke in Las Vegas". We also just received a call that GRIP, a German TV Motor Magazine, covered us working. Check out Min. 6:20 in their "SEMA Show 2010 report". What a coincidence!

At this moment we are working on our reportages about the OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational, our test drive at the Lucas Oil Off Road Series and our interview with Alex Anderson (West Coast Customs (LA)). Stay tuned.

What a mindblowing trip. A huge "thank you" to our partners from Continental for letting us go out into the world. Wow. We love our job. Did we mentioned that already?

Yes. We are still alive. We are back from our overseas trip and brought along a ton of material — SEMA Show 2010, Lucas Oil Off Road Race, OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational, West Coast Customs (Los Angeles) — which wants to get chopped. Aside from that we visited the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for some oval track sports and dragracing and finally paid Rinkens a visit. 

I bet it will not get boring the next days. Stay tuned.

Riot Racing: Vegas To Reno

Yeop, we are big fans of desert racing since we've visited the General Tire Mint 400 in Las Vegas this year. So we would have posted this epic Riot Racing video anyway.

But what we just learned—and actually didn't know—is who drives the #68 trophy truck. His name is Marc Ewing. This name won't sound very familiar to gear heads. But this name will sound familiar to every open source hacking software geek out there—Marc is the founder of Red Hat (Linux).
