I feel pretty lucky to live so close to 714 Tires sometimes…Every now and then someone gives me the heads up they’re swinging by the shop to get their new wheels put on since it is easily the most ‘low friendly’ shop in town and there’s usually a stream of cars slowly bouncing in and out of their parking bay, Continue reading →
Here’s a few of my favorite shots I got today at the meet held in the old Super Autotoyz parking lot hosted by The Big Bang Meet . It’s pretty rare that a meet held in a random parking lot on a Sunday afternoon can bring this kind of turnout, but this meet generally brings out a lot more that’s entertaining than not and you’ll most likely meet a few cool people along the way. Enjoy!
When you hear that a local car dealership is hosting a car show, you might not expect a sea of some of the most heavily modified Hondas in Southern California, but you would be wrong my friend! Norm Reeves Honda Performance Hosted their yearly show for the 9th time last Saturday and I made sure I wasn’t going to miss it, the last two years I have attended and really enjoyed the quality of cars and the laid-back atmosphere of this show. It’s also a great place to meet and chat with other owners since the majority of the people attending the show are the owners themselves!
A couple of weeks ago I got a random facebook invite to check out the Negative Stance X Rubbin’ Pavements meet, held in Huntington Beach. Usually I end up driving up and down an assortment of freeways and unknown streets to make it to a good meet that meets all the essentials: good lot, well lit, good cars, won’t get busted for people driving stupidly, but to my surprise this was being held about 3 miles from my house!Continue reading →
Before hitting up the Extreme Dimensions show this past Saturday, I also woke up at the crack of 5 to brave the crowds and check out Toyota’s new FT-1, designed by California-based Calty design studio (who recently worked on the FT-HS, and Lexus LF-LC). “FT” to stand for “Future Toyota” and “1” to represent “the ultimate”.
Today I had the opportunity to make it out to Cars & Coffee in Irvine from 6 AM until 9 (more on that in a later post) and had gone home for a short nap before heading over to Fullerton for Extreme Dimension’s 8th Charity Car Show that is free to participate in and hosts a raffle with various pieces of Extreme Dimensions bodywork to be had for prizes. I was far too busy to wait and listen to raffle numbers being read off however, I had TONS of cars to pick through and shoot!
I was immediately greeted by this threateningly squatted blob-eye WRX that looked like it was ready for some serious track abuse. Continue reading →
Honestly, there are few things that can happen mid-week that will get me to pull the cover off the Fit and purposefully head into the heart of darkness itself, but Moog & Marty of MCM have given me countless hours of turbo-charged, laughter-filled entertainment and I felt it was the least I could do to head out and support one of the best Youtbue channels I’ve come across.

My attempt to attend last year’s Eibach Honda Meet was met with miserable failure. I made the long haul all the way out to Storm Stadium near Lake Elsinore with all my gear charged up and ready, tons of water and snacks in my pack, aaaand I forgot my wallet. Needless to say I was fairly frustrated with myself as it meant I could not get into the show since I did not know anyone else attending that year. I ended up having a great time shooting the HUGE dirt parking lot and cars as they were leaving, but I was resolved to make it into the show next time and to be fully prepared. Continue reading →
This year’s 2014 Formula Drift Long Beach event also hosted the Offset Kings Long Beach Showcase hosted by Fatlace. It served to give an insight to what we will be seeing as show season begins to rev up and people bring their creations out from their winter’s evolution. Continue reading →
