An Award Winning Finish for CSF
May 31, 2019
With May coming to an end and just a few weeks shy of summer, car shows and caravans are in full swing here in Southern California. CSF geared up and prepared for the 20th year anniversary of Bimmerfest, the largest private BMW gathering in the world. Hosted in our back yard, Auto Club Speedway that is less than 10 minutes away from our headquarters. This is one of the biggest events of the year that we attend considering BMW is our strongest market. Check out our Bimmerfest 2018 recap if you missed it last year. And against the odds, Southern California decided it wanted to show chances of rain in the forecast for the big weekend. Not only was there Bimmerfest to look forward to, but it was also Memorial Day weekend! We had our ponchos on stand-by, set our alarm clocks for the big day and were ready to kick-off the weekend with a bang!
CSF claims the fastest German car in the West
May 2, 2019
The time of the year has come, the last weekend of April 2019. The hot spring sun steams up the farm land of Coalinga California, hosting Motovicity Distribution’s 2nd annual Never Lift Half-Mile race ran by Shift S3ctor. Held at he Municipal Airport of Coalinga, providing 2,640 feet of clean, paved airstrip runway for drivers to go side by side and put it all on the line in a half-mile race for the highest trap speed. Each competing driver had a chance to win a piece of the $38,500 in total prize money over the entire weekend. This event attracted quite a number of cars “flying” over 200+ MPH to earn bragging rights and some dough. CSF continued to be a supporting vendor and sponsor of the event as Motovicity Distribution is one of CSF’s largest distributor’s. With supporting previous events through the years, CSF is glad the relationship can help grow these types of grass-roots motorsports by not only attending as a vendor, but by bringing three cars to compete. As the race weekend approached, the CSF gang packed the sun block, locked & loaded the racecars in the trailers and joined in on the fun.
Old meets new
February 26, 2019
The E30 is a true icon of German engineering and performance. As the years pass by, the prices continue to climb it seems and more enthusiasts want to get their hands on one. To this day I still miss mine, wish I never got rid of it.
When plans change for the better

Within the last five years the 240z has begun to make a strong comeback amongst enthusiasts. In some ways, it can be considered as the Japanese muscle car.
What once was a Model A
January 30, 2019
When Henry Ford first developed the Model A, I feel like there was never a thought in his head that there would be someone almost a century later hacking it up and turning it into this crazy machine.
Marc’s “Street Legal” Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo
January 22, 2019
It’s been a good year since attending a car event in California and decided to head to the CSF Players show, I was living out of state and hadn’t seen my friend Marc (@pterodactyltactics) in a while, nor had I seen his newest build. When I showed up to the event, I immediately went straight to his car and could not believe my eyes; the build was PERFECT. The Grigio Telesto paint that Marc seems to have on all of his vehicles, the brushed wheels, the bright brakes. You could instantly tell this was one of Marc’s builds, and you once you laid eyes on it you couldn’t stop looking.
The Best Post-SEMA Show Around
January 22, 2019
The 2nd annual CSF x Players Show 2018 was a huge success! The turnout was terrific and the quality of cars that showed up was top notch. Because SEMA is an industry-only show, the general public is not allowed to attend. When we were planning on the dates for our inaugural show, we had the idea of it taking place after SEMA so that this event can be the public debut of some of SEMA’s top builds. Southern California is dubbed as the mecca of the automotive industry so several builds are local to us and many are friends of ours in the industry. It was a great way to spend a Sunday with friends, family, good food and to top it off admission is FREE!
AWD + 1000hp + Honda Wagon?!
January 16, 2019
Bisimoto is a name that needs no introduction when it comes to the Honda scene. For a few years he has branched out and left his personal mark on a few Porsches that managed to make heads turn and spin at SEMA, but he has returned to his roots with this latest build, the Wago-van.
A joke between friends becomes a booth vehicle.
January 16, 2019
“Hey, let’s put a $40,000 body kit on a Ferrari and turbocharge it”, we all at times say some crazy things to our friends, but what happens when they take you seriously? Well, this is what happens, you end up with Bright red Ferrari that sounds like a Jetson’s mobile when it’s cruising.
Legends of COOL
December 31, 2018
Now that SEMA is behind us, well by now, it’s way behind us, and I’m finally getting some time to catch up on some coverage from several events. I guess better late than never right? This year’s SEMA was huge for us as it is each year, but it’s exciting to see the CSF brand continue to bloom like the Cereus cactus in Crazy Rich Asians, viewing party and everything! (a.k.a. our booth). It’s an understatement when I say our booth was LIT. It’s also a benefit to having a SEMA Battle of the Builders (BOTB) finalist as a booth car two consecutive years in a row. In fact, we’ve had 3 BOTB finalists in our booth in the past 4 years.
