C7 Corvette Stingray New Car Detail + Gtechniq

C7 Corvette Stingray

The Chevrolet Corvette has come quite a long way since it was first introduced back in 1953. Seven generations & 60 years of an American-made legacy have led us here, to the ‘skate reincarnate’ – a sight unseen since ’76. Long before debut, it was rumored to be mid-engined, split windowed, and sounded wilder than many Corvette enthusiasts could have ever imagined. It might not have fulfilled those matchbox sized dreams when it was unveiled in Detroit back in 2013, but there’s no doubt about it: the C7 Stingray is a serious set of hot wheels.

NWAS Abroad: Barrett-Jackson 2014

Barrett-Jackson-Scottsdale-2014-NWAS-12

For our first expedition of the year, we had the pleasure of venturing back to the new & improved West World facility in Scottsdale, Arizona to experience the 43rd Annual “World’s Greatest Collector Car Auction,” Barrett-Jackson! Over the course of the last 365 days, the West World exhibition center did some serious expanding. Just last year it was a “small” equestrian space with an extended pavilion & a smattering of outdoor areas for rows of tens or vendors. Now, West Word’s pavilion space stretches over a mile long, with the South Hall building reaching around 44,000 square feet, new restaurant facilities, and what feels like infinity more room to play. The venue is growing, and Barrett-Jackson seems to be blowing up right along with it.

“Busy” doesn’t even begin to describe 2013 for us here at the shop. Although we didn’t get out as much as we might have liked over the course of the last 12 months, the business is going strong & our reach seems to be growing larger with every passing day! In 2013 we expanded reconditioning options and treatments with new products & technology, started breaking fresh ground with dealer & corporate services, and really took our imaging game to the next level doing plenty of awesome cyclorama photo shoots. We have some interesting projects already in development for 2014, but for the time being, let’s take a look back on all the automotive awesome that we had the pleasure of working with over the last year!

Skinning a Snake: Stealth & Blue Chrome Dodge Viper Wrap

Dodge-Viper-Wrap-Xpel-Stealth-Avery-Blue-Chrome-vehicle-wraps-seattle-nw-studio-shot-7

Vipers can be a polarizing topic for many automotive enthusiasts. Much like modern iterations of the Chevrolet Corvette, the king snake has found itself under close scrutiny in nearly all aspects of its design, from performance to appearance and everything in between. After 5 generations of twenty valve monsters, it seems safe to say that the Viper is here to stay, even if it means breaking away from Dodge & entering a realm all its own. While the newest generation stays true to the roots of this radical reptile, there will always be something about a Gen II GTS that says “Viper,” more than the others. With our latest wrap, we set out to make the snake louder than ever!
