The “One of One” car show that followed Formula Drift in 2010 is now the “Slammed Society Showcase” which will also be produced by Fatlace. While the name has changed the game hasn’t. Just like One of One this show aims to bring in only the cream of the crop when it comes to show cars in the local area. It is sure to be a big draw to Formula Drift. What better way to kill time between drift sessions than to check out top notch show cars? I can’t wait for the first show, which will take place at the first round of Formula Drift in Long Beach on April 9th.

What is more coveted and sought after more than a Nissan Skyline? How about a vintage 1974 Nissan Skyline 2000GT that’s been done over by “Fatlace” captain Mark Arcenal? Circle get’s the square if that was your guess. At the upcoming San Francisco meet “WekFest” Mark will be officially unveiling the bone stock ’74 Skyline that will be transformed into the rendering you see above (and in the thumbnail below) by Jon Sibal. The Skyline will then be given away to one lucky son of a sandwich in October. Along the way Mark will document the build with pictures and professionally produced video pieces to keep all of us hopefuls updated on the car’s progress. Details on how to enter will be released the day after WekFest on 2.21.11. If you plan on entering then good luck to you because you are going to have a lot of competition!
On February 20th, 2011 at Wekfest in San Francisco, Fatlace will be unveiling it’s latest classic car project, a 1974 Nissan Skyline 2000GT which will be given to one very lucky person at our end of year event, Fatlace Klassik.

Each month, the Skyline will be updated, modified and documented and as it starts its life being a stock body 2000GT Ken & Mary, it’ll turn into this render by the one and only Jon Sibal who I teamed up with to create this masterpiece.
