UPCOMING EVENTS

WEKFEST: The Players of Los Angeles

8

First I’d like to congratulate the guys over at Wekfest for such an amazing show. I myself enjoyed the day very much and this may sound premature, but I’m pretty sure that’s gonna be one of the best show’s SoCal has to offer. I did hear that roll in was a bit of a frenzy, but I’m sure the overall show made up for all of it. This time around I got to attended as a spectator and kept my car at home. It felt good to actually come to a show with a full nights rest for a change ;) I arrived an hour before the gates opened and there was already a long line. At around 1pm when the gates opened, the line went as far as the eye can see almost passing the Queen Mary. The weather was a little hotter than I’d like it to be but that fresh ocean breeze gave us a good chill. The cars in attendance were hand-picked by the Wekfest staff and nothing but top notch. Most of the time events tend to have more quantity than quality, but were lucky enough to get both. I want to ramble on some more but It’s Sunday and today’s laundry day. I need some clean underwear for work tomorrow. Haha. Sorry to make this post so quick but shout out to Junior, Ken and the rest of the WF staff for putting together a great show.

Enjoy my friends.

It was 12pm and the crowds were lining up outside. Before I walked around, I went to look for my friends that arrived early this morning. I first ran into Noel Barnum and his Varis equipped FRS.

 

If you read my post “Family affair” you may remember HeyMikeyyyy’s Acura Integra was down to the frame. Now here it is complete and looking so good!

 

Look at that fresh chrome!

 

My next stop was to see my good friend Marshall Lum of AirRexUSA. Mizzarks M5 was displayed along with a AirRex GTR.


Mizzark demoing the AirRex product on his car the whole day to spectators. Also showing us how it double’s up as a weapon if it was still out of the car. Isn’t he cute. Sorry boy’s he’s married.

 

CHIVAS GET OUT OF MY SHOT!!!

 

Neighboring was the guys over at Airrunner USA.

 

Floss Design’s GT3 911 9.358302053723. At this point I’m already confused about Porsche models/names.

 

Chris Pine’s LS430 next to a 2nd gen GS.

A super clean Integra

 

with a sparking K20 with ITB’s

 

Casey’s Toyota Cressida

 

Those who know me know I’m a 3GS owner and fan. Yan’s GS450H is my personal favorite GS, after mine of course ;) haha!

 


Twin Job Design GS’s

 

A very clean Fairlady Z sitting on Work Equip’s.

 

You saw a Chevelle, I heard “EJECTO SEAT CUHZ!”

 

OMG the  Internet just walked by me.

Ryan of RyWire and Hiro visiting from Japan. I try to get as much candid shots as I can but Ryan reacted with the quickness. hah.

 

 

 


Ojay’s Toyota Previa.

 

Liberty Walk 3 Series Wagon.

The beautiful Elissa Alva and Official WekFest model.


Always happy and takes the time to sign autographs for her fans.

 

I asked her if she can step away from the usual and give me her funniest face instead of a serious and sexy pose. She gave it her best and I got this. I later showed this photo to Haylee and she replied “What the hell! She’s still beautiful!” haha. We need to work on your funny face Elissa.

Julie Mai over at the Style Over Comfort Booth.

Another immaculate Integra. Now a day’s its very rare to see an Integra that hasn’t been horribly raped or abused. I always appreciate seeing a nice clean Integra.

Now here’s someone that define’s the #Wekfestprep hashtag.

JayCrayyy was far from done the night before and with no sleep he got through it and finished at the very last minute. His roll in time was at 7am and was still assembling the car over at TheCarShop. Luckily he was allowed a late roll in.

The line was long but it moved very quickly. When the the spectators got closer, they got a little preview on what they were about to see.

As I said before, the line was as far as the eye can see.

 

Tjin Edition Rocket Bunny FRS.

Vdub Wong’s RWB Porsche

 

The Tjin Edition Road show had Brakes and Turbo’s on display for spectators see upclose. These were products they use in their own builds.

I came back around around 2pm and Mikeyyyy’s Integra was surrounded. Mikey has been posting his build via Instagram for weeks and people came to see the final product.

Jorgie one of the guys helping with the build applying his logo on the car.

 


Mikey didn’t think his car was good enough to display on it’s own. So he bought a Ruckus and customized it to match his Integra. WOW MBN


Another shot of Noel’s car from the rear.

I meant to say he was demoing the JDMchemical’s products.

 

It was award’s time and usually by now people already vacate the show because they don’t care to know. People actually stayed to find out which car’s reigned supreme.
