SEMA Car Show 2019 at Las Vegas

The reason why we started this activity is to establish the brand Josefin Garage as a reference point in the Tuning sector.

Therefore, our philosophy implies to always improve and to interpret new incoming trends, before they become “common knowledge” to the public.

Pursuing this direction, the comparison with other realities in the industry is not only inevitable, but necessary.

For this reason we decided to dedicate a short page of this blog to our new adventure that, in November 2019, led us to cross the ocean and visit what is perhaps the global appointment of tuning: the SEMA Show in Las Vegas

In the middle of the desert arises the “fun-park city” par excellence and symbol of excesses: casinos, hotels that stand out against the sky and that have the most varied forms and themes, until you get to the extravagant people who walk the street. So, there is no better location that could host this appointment for Tuning, which is appreciated and not so hardly condemned by to many quibbles and bureaucratic obstacles to overcome as in Italy. 

Surely from this point of view the Americans have understood the potential of having a strong industry, working together with manufacturers, providing parts always better in quality and safety for end users. Since 1963, in fact, the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) has found its place as an Aftermarket trade fair, but over time the same OEM manufacturers, dealers, media and much more have also been added, up to more than 6,300 exhibitors from all over the world

Perhaps the most outstanding thing of all is that the fair is not open to the public. These exceptional numbers are even more extraordinary when you think that the entrance is reserved only for people related to the industry as company and so on.

It is also true that, thanks to social media, the promotion of the event takes place thanks to the numerous youtubers, journalists,  vloggers who contribute to increase the fame of this annual appointment through millions of “digital” spectators. 

Many American “garages”, which have become known with the more or less popular and questionable recent TV series, meet at this event to unveil their latest “custom” creations. Precisely, because this fair has no equal in the world, here you can admire the different styles and interpretations of tuning made on classic cars and evergreen, until the most recent automobile. 

As Josefin Garage, we believe this type of healthy competition is fundamental. After the first official meeting of the Josefin Garage group with some of our customers during the Wörthersee 2019 in Austria, we wanted to be present at this globally-known event.

Our activity is growing fast and we always have new customers, most of them outside Italy, who contact us for our seriousness and experience in the work we do. 

We believe it is essential, to underline the professionalism and style that distinguish us, to come in contact with the new trends proposed by the sector. This means becoming aware of the new products available and the new methods of using new materials, as well as new innovative solutions, to ensure our customers greater quality and performance from components, whether mechanicals, structural or aesthetics. 

We had the opportunity to meet and discuss with experts in the field and many “guru” of this sector. The classic “American” atmosphere is really relax and those people find the time to discuss and reply to many questions, because they are driven by our same passion. This approach helps to create a healthy and motivating environment.

As an Italian company, we were pleased to have been welcomed by colleagues from other countries, especially from America and Japan, with a lot of warmth and interest in the work we do, even on cars that are not always popular overseas.

At the same time, we were able to exchange views on engines and new styles of cars not in great demand in our country. This last step, very important, allows us to work with experienced partners even on those cars not very popular in Italy. In fact, those owners often struggle to find companies prepared with such a technical background to be able to work seriously on this type of cars.

In short, this was an exceptional event and a fantastic first experience. We like to improve and always raise the level of our Tuning. For this reason we are sure that this is only the first step towards a great internationalization of our brand.

We are waiting for you to discuss together your new tuning project!

Perfect Tuning

How can you define “car enthusiasts”? You cannot define them by race, by language or by country.

The only common denominator that they all share is a true and deep passion for automobiles and everything that is related to that.

We can narrow down the dream of every car enthusiast in a simple sentence: “driving your desired car every day”.

This desire is not quantifiable in terms of money but it is more about the unique features that make an automobile special for you. These simple words, put together, identify the strong will, or better the need, for a “car-guy” (or car-girl) to drive an individually refined vehicle, capable of representing your deepest essence and of expressing your personality like no other automobile would.

But how do we customise our own vehicle, to make it unique?

Since the last decades we have borrowed the term “tuning” from the English language, a simple word capable of bringing out different feelings in every one of us and, at the same time, describing the most complicated visions, which other words or even sentences could not do. 

There are no written rules, there is not a right path to follow. Tuning is an art, and like every art, it has different interpretations, movements and theories which, like trends, vary together with decades, cultures and technological development. 

The reality is that tuning has no father or mother, has no rules and it will never have. Everywhere you go, you will meet people who are willing to proudly show their creations, discussing with you their choices and willing to listen to your story. Genuine people who smile at you and respect you for the choices you made, not judging the outcome, but simply because you, as they, dared to choose.

Tuning is then choosing, … choosing to be different, choosing to be yourself. The choice of being different from the average, different from the masses. You can develop a livery, bright colours, you can always improve your technique, refine your style like in every other art. Like every other discipline, tuning requires sacrifice and exercise and, most of all, time. Time is essential to think and to decide the right path to follow.

As a society, we are evolving and so do our cars. This does not have to scare car lovers because there will always be a way to make your ride special and unique. 

Do not look back and think that everything is lost, that in earlier times it was easier, do not fall in that trap! Live the moment, live now, take your car and your responsibility, and act! Tuning is evolving too. Many things that were not even thinkable a decade ago are now commonly available and can help you succeed in your process. I found no better way to open this Josefin Garage Car Blog with an article regarding tuning and the wide range of possibilities to make your vehicle the mirror of your driver’s soul. 

As previously said, tuning is an art and some people have real talent for it. When you have an idea in your mind you go and discuss it with for example an architect, so that he or she can advise you on how dispose the furniture into a room or on how building a house from scratch. That is his or her field of expertise. Consequently, there are tuning experts, talented artists who have experience and can advise you the best possibilities available to reach your goals.

At Josefin Garage we welcome our passionate friends in our automotive-inspired workshop.

We sit around our carbon-fibre table and we let you talk and tell us about your story, your idea and your project. this first step is essential in order to realise a first draft that is in line with your own expectations; something that is in harmony with your personality and your way of thinking.

We would like to share with you our passion for automobiles also through this new Blog experience.
We invite you to visit our website and check our automotive-related services.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us and tell us about your project.

We will be happy to help.

Tuning Groundculture

Groundculture comes from an idea of ​​two friends that, one evening in front of a beer, decide to create a car club.

The first members of the crew are the closest acquaintances of automobile enthusiasts who decide to support the project, giving an identity to the group.

The project has always been clear: static or bagged cars, clean style with large cast or split wheels, a style that left its mark on every occasion.
With this philosophy since 2014 Groundculture makes a group, as well as community and automotive blog, of Italian lowlife culture well distinguishable for its style in car modification, constantly increasing the ranks of followers on their Facebook and Instagram pages, in addition the group in the course of the years has become very active and present at events related to clean cars, low and german style cars such as Gti Worthersee Treffen, Xs Car, So.Ga and other national events.

The initial idea of a car club is supplanted by a fraternal friendship that binds all the members of the crew, so unlike many other groups that tend to expand constantly, Groundculture tends to tighten the relationships between its historical members approaching all the members so they can spend their free time in an atmosphere of peace and serenity.

In addition to the modified GC cars. he is actively involved in photo and video shooting of high quality thanks to his media crew that engages in services both for cars inside and outside the club.
