Extreme Dimensions 8th Annual Charity Car Show

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!

Wekfest Long Beach Pt. 2

Image

There’s not too much I can add word-wise that I didn’t talk about in my first post, but part 2 will be covering the main part of the show hosted on the grassy section where the bulk of the cars were located.  No doubt you’ve seen a few shots of this insanely cambered Q45 (Y33 Cima) on rarely seen 3-spoke Work Equips from Low ‘N Slow, it had a primo spot and had the craziest wheel setup at the show.  It’s not surprising this look has caught on so quickly; it’s dangerous, difficult to properly achieve, and it came from Japan!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

Cars & Coffee 5.24.14

Image

 

When my alarm went off at 5:45 AM this morning my instinct was to hit snooze and skip my regular pre-work shower.  Thankfully I realized my alarm was not set for work but for the weekly Cars & Coffee meet held in Irvine, so I jumped out of bed with my new found motivation, downed a bowl of cereal, grabbed the stale remainder of yesterday’s thermos of french roast, and hopped on the freeway for my overdue dose of the early morning automotive mosaic that is Cars & Coffee.

Mighty Car Mods LA Meet 5.13.14

Image

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.
