Continuing with getting some older coverage up we go back in time to October ’14 to when 88 Rotors hosted a surprisingly well-attended meet at their warehouse in El Monte. It was my first trip out to a meet in my newly acquired ’86 Toyota pickup and I was pretty excited to run into my friend Jordan who has been showing his ’85 ‘yota recently and is constantly tweaking and changing things, always a cool ride to run into… Not to mention he’s rocking a Hobbaswaggle sticker!

Lot Lizarding at Wekfest Long Beach Pt. 1

Image

I thought I had properly prepared myself to attend Wekfest this year, but as soon as I got out of my car and saw the line I knew I had a LOT of time before I was getting in.  General admission was not until 1:30PM and the line was already hundreds, if not a couple thousand people long.  While it’s awesome for the guys putting on the show that attendance is higher than ever, but for someone trying to get in and take pictures…it’s a different story.  So rather than slowly sear myself on the asphalt, I decided to take a stroll around the parking lot to check out some of what the Wekfest audience was rolling around in.  Keep in mind many of these cars may have been in the parking lot because they chose not to show, either because they are a work in progress or because they simply aren’t interested in building a “show car” and the main reason I go out to shoot parking lots is to see what trends carry over and what are presumably daily drivers.  Image

Wekfest Long Beach pt. 1

Image

Wefest Long Beach is easily the biggest, most crowded, and most popular car show that I regularly attend every year.  The line to get in is massive, the traffic trying to park borders on Costco-parking-lot levels of congestion, and the sun never fails to chase every cloud away to scorch down on everyone and punish the un-sunscreened.  Why bother to wade through all this you might ask? Wekfest Long Beach is simply the best car show of its type in Southern California hands down in terms of quality and quantity of vehicles in attendance. Continue reading
