Look back at Sema 2015

Sema is the worlds biggest automotive show in the USA or maybe even the world. We have been going since 2002 and this year was no exception. We had applied to present 3 different cars at sema. And this year one of our cars was accepted and it happed to be our BMW e3 Bavaria. Our goal at CAtuned is to build classics in a different flare. And show our parts that we sell and use on a daily basis. The Bavaria is not a finished car or one that isn't perfect in any way. But we were happy to show it and even more happy to see like minded individuals enjoy it at the show. 


And now some awesome highlights from the show:

We visit Emory Motorsports

We visit Emory Motorsports to get a first hand look. 

We first found out about Rod on the internet specifically on Instagram: @rodemory 

After we drooled all over our phones for over a year we had to come out and check things out in person. 

Rod Emory and his team of craftsmen are out of this world. We started talking to Rod and it was easy to see he loves what he does. He was able to explain to us the process the cars undergo and what it takes to build a Emory special or the 356 Outlaw. With hammers and machinery going you could see the masterpieces forming. Each build is restored to better-than-factory standards from its metal unibody and exterior to its mechanicals and interior. 

We really could have hung out all day and just talked and talked. 

Be sure to check out the website for more info and the work Rod and his team do at:

Formula DRIFT at Long Beach, CA 2016

Formula DRIFT at Long Beach, CA 2016

This was nothing but spectacular even with the heavy rain at times. It did not keep the fans away as stands were full and crowds were huge. Rain was come and go the entire time with sometimes heavy amounts pouring down. Which made for some bad conditions. As we saw some drivers fighting to maintain proper momentum. It was no doubt a very much exciting event. Here are just a few highlights from the event.



The vendors booths showed some nice products and cars. 

This was storming with people throughout  the day.

The experience is what makes this event unique than the rest. Music bumping, dozens of venues, food trucks, and hundreds of enthusiasts walking around on the tire marked floors. Everything from e30 M3s, to the massive sea of porsches that HG motorsports brought out. Here are just a few highlights of the event.
