Cars & Coffee, Irvine : Third edition of Coverage

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.

Via Wickipedia:

“The car is powered by a 437 bhp (326 kW; 443 PS) 6.2 L V8 GM sourced engine found in the Chevrolet Camaro.[4] 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

SEMA Coverage Part II: The FR-S Collection

Seeing that we were limited on time we didn’t get to see the entire car show and i’m sure we missed a lot of the hyped FR-S/BRZ’s out there but the ones we came across looked pretty bad ass. I wish I got to see the one built by the homies at Platinum VIP/ Phantom Garage and the Iforged one but I totally missed out. These are the ones that caught my eye and stood out to me while walking the halls.
Enjoy.

Bobs Your Uncle: SEMA Coverage Pt. 1

Well I know it’s pretty late and I’m sure everyone has seen all or most of the nicest rides of SEMA but we wanted to bring our coverage to you anyway. We only attended SEMA one day because we didn’t have the luxury of going more days (darn work). We pretty much drove up after work the day before SEMA ended. So we knew we’d have a full day of work ahead of us Friday. Seeing that we had to wake up early for the last day we head over for registration to pick up our passes for the day and our luck they couldn’t find our name for media. Since we were pressed for time we asked how much it was to go into the event as a spectator. Who knew it was $75 for a day? Technically its $75 for the four day pass but seeing that we were there the last day thought they’d gives us a break. WRONG! Haha it wasn’t their fault but we decided to wait it and have them look for our Media passes again. Luckily enough they did find our registration and thus began our day.  I won’t jibber jabber too much but I wish we could have gone for a few days rather then rush the coverage into one day but there’s always next year.

4th Of July : American Muscle

It’s the 4th of July and all I could think of was posting Mustangs, Camaros, and Challengers. So keeping in mind with yesterdays post with the US based Fisker Karma.  I wanted to give homage to the US Automakers for bringing these muscle cars back into production.

Camaro stuntin with an Oldschool Flair

I’ve always been a fan of old muscle cars any car actually. There’s always some kinda art in a motor vehicle.

Been seeing a lot of this kinda old school flair on the new Camaros and it’s actually ok looking. I myself don’t think i’d do it but it is unique and does look pretty good.

check it.
