Lady In Red – Paul’s Toyota Aristo


We’ve been following Paul’s  work on his Aristo for a while now.  Waiting on the perfect set of wheels left the project on hold for a bit last summer.  Now though, it’s ready for it’s debut. Instagram: @motiveempire - Automotive lifestyle blog Photographer: @motiveempire_brianna

When our weather started warming up the first order of business was a shift in color.  Away from a dark maroon, onto something a little brighter.

Stripping the old vinyl off also allowed for Paul to put his own personal touch on his front fenders.  Investing the time to modify the fenders to his liking really helps set the car apart as one of a kind.

Along with the new air suspension setup Paul brings those fenders right close to a beautiful set of Avant Garde wheels that suit the car so well.

The Aristo has been out breaking necks on the streets for a while now.  But, for the chance to see it up close and personal come down the Driven, July 9th at the Red River Exhibition grounds to see this beauty at the Motive Empire booth!

It’s been great following everything Paul has done with this project and we look forward to seeing what’s next!

The Road to SpeedFest – Ryan

The countdown is on!

We’re a week away from Speedfest, and the hustle to get ready for the show is in full swing.  After a day out at the Southbeach Casino car show we got the chance to photograph another one of the vehicles that will be showing with us July 19th at the RBC Convention Centre.

We love what Ryan’s doing with the truck and can’t wait to see what happens with it next.

Taking a break from lowered cars to photograph something that doesn’t have to worry about ditches, much less speed bumps was a nice break.

With a freshly installed grille from Ryan’s sponsor Royalty Core we had to put the lightbar to use for a couple shots!

The Road to SpeedFest – Keenan and Seaver

We’ve been busy lately getting prepared for Winnipeg SpeedFest, but, as projects are coming together we wanted to showcase some of the cars that will be at the Motive Empire booth at the show July 19th.

With our long winters it never hurts to embark on larger projects, Keenan took this as an opportunity to clean up the bay in his MR-2.
