Flashback to Slammed Society Guam 2013

Hafa Adai,

It’s been awhile since I posted a blog on here, long enough for me to forget my password. Or I probably just have bad memory.
Well anyways, lets get straight to the coverage.

Slammed Society Guam 2013 was huge for the island; we needed a big show to spark that nostalgic feeling of building show cars from the late 90′s to mid 00′s when shows were huge on the island, when clear taillights, sentras with westerns and bleacher wings were the fit. We went from having at least 2-3 shows per year to having no shows for about 5 years straight; we had a few meets but it still wasn’t the same. The only thing keeping us up were the ongoing car blogs stateside and internationally, so we were pretty much watching from the sidelines while others partied out at car shows. During those times, one of those shows that everyone kept an eye out for was Hellaflush/Slammed Society. I’ve been working with Mark Arcenal producing videos ,since late 2011 and early 2012, but it never crossed my mind that we would ever throw a show here on the island. Fast forward almost 3 years later, with a collaborative effort between Fatlace, Upshift Ent, ANFilms and Illest, we were able to make that idea a reality for the island.

Also in 2013, our buddies at Hafadaze-a big supporter of SSGU-threw a car show named Autofiesta ,a few months prior to SSGU, which was off the hook, so huge props to them for joining that venture with us to bring that spark back to the island. Thank you.

Most importantly, we just want everyone to have a fun at these shows and experience the automotive culture, fatlace style, and the lifestyles that follow it.
Okay so enough of this chatter, lets get to the photo and video coverage-the real reason why you’re here.

Some of the good guys at Proline Guam, which is the biggest automotive accessory shop on the island and also a big supporter and sponsor of SSGU. The only place on island that carries a full range of Fatlace/Illest goodies, from Illest T-shirts to Slammed Society automotive accessories.

Here are some shots from early to the show and leading on.

We also had a sick art competition hosted by the good guys of Opake. Those guys killed it.

Some shots from the Proline Drift Competition held in conjunction with our event.

Huge congrats to all the winners, unfortunately I wasn’t able to post up everyone. But we like to congratulate all the winners and everyone else who participated in the show.

Once again, we’d like to thank everyone who came out and supported the show. Also a huge thanks to all our sponsors and everyone responsible for making this show a reality. Thank you. Stay posted to the site for more info on Offset Kings Guam 2014, were going to have twice the fun this year. :)
