I wanted to take the chance in part 2 of the coverage to introduce our newest addition to the team Deejay Dunsparth that was also at the event and was able to take a few pics for us.
Here we have the sequel to Emerson’s (Emu) Formula D coverage. G
Irvine Cars and coffee location but with a little twist. Formula D Tech inspection and Import Tuner cover car search meet took over and looks like it brought out a lot of cars. Our old buddy and one of the newest edition to BobsYrUncle crew Emu Viana went out to cover the event and bring you some pics.
As i go through the pics i notice a common thing .. WOW there’s a lot of white cars!!! I remember when white, black cars were a definite no no’s for magazine covers but maybe things changed? But, guess that’s besides the point. I wanted to start off the coverage with the abundance of white cars then we’ll switch gears and go to the normal coverage of the event in the next episode.
We want to congratulate our friend Freddie on his tremendous job arranging his Grand Opening! It looked great! Granted the BobsYrUncle crew did get there later then expected. But we made it!! What had happened was….. We planned on leaving the LA area around 7 am to get there early and reserve some new spots and talk to Freddie and what not and literally ended up leaving at 9:30 instead. Uber FAIL. I’m just going to blame day light savings for that one. SMH.
We ended up at Auto Fashion around 12 and missed the ribbon ceremonies but the event was packed even when we headed out for food around 3 it was still packed!
Great turn out and a lot of nice cars I wasn’t able to capture every single one, nor do i think i would. (i ain’t got time fo dat)
It was good seeing all the homies i hadn’t seen in a while and meeting new people.
Here’s part 1 of coverage from the show for you to enjoy.
Being a fan of all automobiles new, old, crazy looking, or even those work in progress cars that don’t get a lot of love. Everyone has their own steez and it’s just a little harder to see where they’re coming from. So because of my “weird” likes we ended up taking a lot of pics of a broad array of cars from super old school to the uniques that aren’t seen everyday. Basically whatever caught my eye.
These headlight housing were crazy .. nearly seemless addition to the car.
Don’t see Lancia’s on the street very often. Seeing the name always makes me think of rally races
This full race Fiat 500 was bananas.
Look Ma’ no headlights. (Big thanks to the random stranger for pointing that out)
Themed bike got my attention.
Had no idea what this was at first and had to look up more info AC 378 GT Zagato. Not a name that so easy to remember but it is impressive in person. Built in South Africa by Hi-Tech Automotive and designed in Italy.
“The car is powered by a 437 bhp (326 kW; 443 PS) 6.2 L V8 GM sourced engine found in the Chevrolet Camaro. Weighing 1,465 kg (3,230 lb), the company predict a 0-60 mph acceleration time of under four seconds and a top speed around 185 mph. The car does not feature any electronic driver aids”
This Bus was insane! Creativity and ingenuity was a site to see. It’s not all polished on the outside but i’m sure you can appreciate the build. For more pics see Part 2 of our Cars & Coffee coverage here.
Isuzu Vehicross from what i remember had a strong following and was a pretty pricey car/ truck to buildAlways a classic. Mr. Supra Nick wasn’t able to make it out this morning but luckily enough Jill his GF brought out his JZA80. Buddy of mine Scott’s turbo first gen GS ❤ that T04Z HKS turboThe very well known Brendan’s LrgSoup
The facelift on this beast is so clean!!
Clean 2nd Gen GS built by Owner of the Phantom Garage USA.
Located in Chino. So if you’re in that area and need some car parts, hit the homie up. Does a little bit of everything and knows his stuff.
