freestyle magazine vol 12:
The Digital Age
The explosion of social media in the past decade has had a profound effect on the way we live our lives in every aspect. Web-based technology has turned communication into an interactive discussion between the information provider and the user, and freestylerides.com is leading the way.
With the proliferation of mobile gadgets such as smartphones, iPads, netbooks and the like, information is accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week from all corners of the globe. Social media outlets like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube have changed the way we operate both personally and professionally. Technology now dictates that the business world is moving "online" and not surprisingly, the automotive and print media industries have been influenced in a major way.
At FreeStyle Rides, we always endeavour to stay ahead of the game, so we're super-excited to announce that we're pushing our digital publishing to the next level. Make no mistake — freestylerides.com is the ultimate website for the automotive lifestyle scene. With the site updated weekly, we'll continue to bring to you the very best in cars, bikes, shows, girls, fashion, music and more. What this means for you, is a greater number of quality features uploaded more frequently.
Visiting freestylerides.com is a truly interactive experience. This online editorial evolution will provide you with the best motoring and lifestyle content including videos, photo shoots, feature articles and more. On top of all these exciting developments, FreeStyle Rides is now also the Official Online Media Partner of Meguiar's MotorEx.
Of course, we can never ignore the fact that there's something rather quaint about the feel of a magazine in your hands. We know you enjoy flicking through the jam-packed pages of FreeStyle Rides and we think this is perhaps our best-ever print issue yet.
Built Tough! (Page 53) shines the spotlight on three of the best known and most respected creations in the custom car scene: Graeme Cowin's "King Kong" Plymouth Barracuda; Laurie Seguna's "Mr Sik" Holden Gemini, and Ben Gatt's "dumped" Lincoln Zephyr.
We also throw into the mix Mark Tarabay's "sublime" 200SX, Johnny's insane Chopper and a Craig Fraser-painted Ranchero. Plus, we take the classy 2010 Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic for a spin on the street.
The FSR team had the privilege of our LA-based photographer Estevan Oriol being in Australia to shoot the beautiful girls in our model features. Volume 12 of FreeStyle Rides is jam-packed with all sorts of hotness! The gorgeous Nevena Tepic was shot behind closed doors at the Lamborghini workshop. Deus Ex Machina was the location for the sexy Taylor Gunz shoot. Ever-popular US import model Jeri Lee hung out with the Old Memories Car Club, plus there's an intimate session with the exotic Katina Fimmel.
We also have exclusive one-on-one interviews with three legends of their crafts: master builder John D'Agostino, burnout specialist Gary Myers, and tattoo artist Steve Soto. Enjoy the insight into the mindsets of this talented trio, each at the top of their respective fields.
And just when you thought Volume 12 couldn't get any better, when you visit FreeStyle Rides online you'll discover no less than nine custom-made videos complimenting this issue's main features.
Always remember this, folks: freestylerides.com is where all your automotive and lifestyle action's at, now and into the future!
