THERE’S SOME­THING ABOUT ADDING A HINT OF LIME TO YOUR FA­VORITE DRINK THAT MAKES IT GO DOWN THAT MUCH EAS­IER IN THE SUM­MER. Beer, soda, wa­ter - add a spritz of cit­rus and some warmer weather, and it’s in­stantly that much more re­fresh­ing. That’s the kind of at­ti­tude we ap­proach our is­sues with this time of year, ex­cept we like to squeeze a bit of Euro over the pages of PAS, and the re­sult­ing cock­tail is what you’re peer­ing over now.

Speak­ing of the weather be­ing at its peak, so is show sea­son! As such, we’ve packed some pretty ma­jor shows in­side. Take a look at how it all went down at Fit­ted Life­style in Toronto, Eurokracy in Mon­treal, a Driven Show dou­ble-header in Ed­mon­ton and Van­cou­ver, and At­lanta’s it­er­a­tion of Tuner Evo­lu­tion. Af­ter skimming through the award lists there, make sure to look into our own Tuner Bat­tle­grounds Live win­ners, as we have three very de­serv­ing en­thu­si­asts and builds fea­tured there.

Onto some cur­rent events: if Amer­ica is get­ting a Space Force, may we throw an idea into the ring on what the Force’s space ships should be mod­elled af­ter? We’re talk­ing about Dionne Mas­cu­nana’s space-age-look­ing Porsche Cay­man on the front of the book. Out­fit­ted in one of the least liked Pandem kits, Mas­cu­nana took it upon him­self to de­velop the car into some­thing com­pletely his own vi­sion. Turns out his vi­sion is right on the money be­cause this has got to be one of our most fa­vorite look­ing cars - pos­si­bly ever.

Also fea­tured is what we think is the ul­ti­mate E30 from PASMAG Euro is­sue alumni, CA­tuned. BWM E30 four-door. ITB’d S54 en­gine. Six-speed man­ual gear­box. Built like a race­car. You’ll want to know all about this car, so make sure you dive in.

We also have a fit­ting trib­ute to the brake-less, not-en­gag­ing-ni­trous-soon-enough-ju­nior char­ac­ter from Fast & Fu­ri­ous: Jesse. When a hash­tag among F&F fans, #BringBack­Jesse, took off on so­cial me­dia, Chad Lind­berg, the ac­tor who played Jesse, de­cided to team up with F&F trib­ute car builder, Do­minic Dubreuil, to bring back the fan fa­vorite car and char­ac­ter. Here, we have Jesse’s re­turn, and all that went into it made for a great story.

This is a taste of the hint we’ve added to this is­sue, so dig on in and en­joy all the is­sue has to of­fer. Thanks for pick­ing us up. Feel free to let us know how we’re do­ing at let­ters@pasmag.com, and we’ll see you for the next one!
