Welcome enthusiast to another issue! Snapmatic Spotlight: Custom Rides & Garages is now known as Customs, Cruisers, and Classics! The name change felt appropriate because of the expansion its currently undergoing -while also encompassing all vehicles from stock to modified, classic to modern, motorcycles to 4x4s; its important not to single out any class!
- Renamed from "Snapmatic Spotlight: Custom Rides & Garages" to "Customs, Cruisers, and Classics". Special thanks to Professional Amateur for the recommendation!
- Added the Make and Model for vehicles featured in showcase next to photographers name.
- Added Pin-up Model section. What's cars without models? 💋
- Added Featured Vehicle Photographer and Workshop interviews section.
- Added Information Desk section.
- Added a colored theme to each Issue depending on Guest(s) or by random.
- Cleaned up formatting and graphics.
As promised, I wrapped this issue with fatter tires, increased the horsepower (or kilowatts), and made things louder to wake the neighbors! This week we feature Vanillaworks, a car modification workshop for GTA V. So strap on your racing harnesses and enjoy!
The Vehicle Screenshots: Custom Rides & Garages has just reached its 1,000th page! This is quite the achievement considering the thread has little to no discussion, purely snaps. Member, Randoom. had the honors of making that post! Thank you to all of the amazing contributors who has made that Custom Rides & Garages the place to see some of the sickest rides and cleanest snaps. Come join us as the celebration and snaps continue! 🎈🎆
*UPDATE* Randooms. post got pushed back to page 999 because it seems a post was binned on the previous page. That's ok Randoom, you were still technically the first on page 1,000

The work of Vanillaworks is no stranger to the Custom Rides & Garages thread; from their latest creations, the Annis Euros, Dinka Flash, Benefactor Schafter GTR, to stunning Need for Speed and real life tuner shop inspired liveries!
Please, welcome Da7K, Carrythxd, and Boywond of Vanillaworks! Can you tell us a bit about your Workshop to those that aren't familiar with it?
Our workshop is GTAV lore-friendly oriented workshop, there you can find our new cars, liveries and our own add-on pack which contains all our releases combined.
How did you get started into vehicle mods?
Da7K: Starting in GTA SA I was just taking pictures of car mods, this continued until GTA IV when I started editing textures, made a lot of friends who are already modding cars and this made me want to start doing the same. Around about the same time GTA V released on PC, then several months later ZModeler finally supported exporting GTA V models and I started making my first car mods which you can still see as the first 4 pic on my Instagram.
Carry: Da7K actually mentioned some time ago that I should start messing around with ZModeler 3 and start converting some vehicles, so I decided to give it a try. I haven't released any vehicle mods yet but hopefully once I have this one that I'm currently converting finished I can release it and then start working on some other vehicles that I'd like to see in V. Before that I had messed around with ZModeler 2 in GTA IV back in maybe 2012/2013 but never ended up releasing anything because everything that I did was basically just changing wheels and switching parts from one vehicle to another.
Boywond: I started doing liveries for Trackmania back in 2010, back then they were really bad. Some time later I started editing textures in GTAIV and GTASA.
"CaN yOu mAkE tHiS pLz?" What is your most requested vehicle to be made?
Da7K: Deluxo, apparently. But we don't take requests, so...
Carry: Deluxo. We got so many requests about that vehicle that at one point our thread was only about that vehicle.
Boywond: Probably the Deluxo, cause people started derailing topic with ideas and suugestions about it.
What is the typical process of getting a vehicle and livery made from start to finish?
First step is just tossing ideas around and looking around for vehicles that we can convert to GTA V. Then we get the vehicle files from another game or older GTA games and make necessary adjustments so that it would fit in the world of GTA V. After that it's the conversion process, then the add-on gets made and livery support is also sometimes added. Finally the mod gets a handling line and description written up and it's ready to be uploaded.
Can you share with us what projects you have going on currently?
Currently we're working on the Annis Hizoku and its Custom counterpart:
It's no mystery that you all love cars, what got you interested into cars?
Da7K: Video Games.
Carry: Games and my parents.
Boywond: Games, I'm a big Gran Turismo fan since my childhood.
Do you have a preference in what type of cars you shoot? (Japanese, American, European etc.)
Carry: No, not really.
Boywond: Japanese and European.
What is your favorite vehicle from the GTA series of all time and why?
Da7K: Vulcar Warrener, because it's the only kyusha in the game, and R* has nailed the look of the C10 front, also i'm pretty sure it's the only car that has the hood hinged on the front.
Carry: The Pegassi Infernus Classic (GTA V Version). Ever since it's release I've really liked the way it looks and the way it handles, even though it didn't know how to turn left at one point in its life, but that was luckily fixed pretty quickly.
Boywond: Annis Elegy Retro, R* did really great job making it look like RL Skyline but at the same time it looks unique.
Great choices! They are all in my top 10. What are your favorite cars in real life?
Da7K: De Tomaso Pantera.
Carry: Lamborghini Diablo.
Boywond: Ferrari F40 and Ferrari Testarossa.
Is there a vehicle from any GTA series that you would want to see return in GTA V?
Da7K: Technically not a usable vehicle but i really like older Japanese cars and they are under represented in GTAV, the 'Insurrection Turbo XRZ5 X-2' (beta vehicle from GTAVCS) would be a welcome addition, maybe with a different name.
Carry: Cuban Hermes.
Boywond: Well, both cars I wanted to see again were added with the Gunrunning Update - Pegassi Torero and Grotti Cheetah Classic.
Do you use any other type of photo editor outside of the Rockstar Editor?
Da7K: Rarely, but i usually use GIMP.
Carry: Every now and then I use Adobe Lightroom and/or Photoshop.
Boywond: Adobe Photoshop.
How about any photography tips for the readers?
We suggest you to use Extended Video Export and Nvidia's DSR for high-quality pics.
Lastly, thank you so much for your time! Any closing comments or shoutouts?
Our shoutouts go to FilipJDM, Artistraaw, KermanRB12, Voit Turyv, and MGgames100.
Thank you again for all of your time Boywond, Carrythxd, and Da7K! You can find their latest cars, liveries, and projects over at: Vanillaworks
