A Slice of the SEMA Show in DTLA
November 24, 2020
This year is a weird one. A lot of our day-to-day activities and things we see as “normal” have been altered or taken away completely. As we approached the end of October – things sort of felt out of place. We weren’t scrambling to get our booth shipped, sorting out transport for cars, rushing to get new products to debut – and for the first time in a long time, we didn’t spend Halloween in Vegas.
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.
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.

“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.
Counting SHEEP #CSFEVOX
May 6, 2018
Counting sheep to fall asleep is a method that seems to be as old as time. But, when you see what Sheepey Built did with the EVO, we’ll be Luke Skywalkin’ on these haters, so don’t sleep, you gotta stay UP!

The Ultimate Endurance Racing Machine
March 30, 2016
Endurance racing – the ultimate test of man and machine working together. Competing against other teams, the elements, and numerous unexpected variables in order to survive the grueling battle against the clock. Sometimes these endurance races last 4-6 hours, maybe even twelve. If your willpower matches your skillset, and the preparation of your vehicle is on par with the best in motorsports, you step it up to a race that last more than a full day – The 25 Hours of Thunderhill.
