Just in time to take advantage of the season, ‘ITSJDMYO’ hosted a toy drive alongside a car meet to help out those in need as well as displaying a decent amount of cool cars, mostly built by local shops but with a few nearby personalities finding their way by to check out the scene.

DSC_1526 copy class=

Howdy all! It’s been a while since I’ve gone to a new, regular meet so I decided to join up with a few SoCal Fitted buddies and take a little drive down south to Laguna Hills for a weekly meet that’s held there. Continue reading

Negative Stance X Rubbin’ Pavements Summer Meet

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!DSC_7437 copy Continue reading

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!

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
