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.
Car & Coffee Irvine is always something to look forward to even when it’s meeting the homies up at 6:15 in the morning. I met up with few friends at the Irvine Spectrum and caravan-ed it to Cars and Coffee shortly after.
Finally parked and ready to walk around the meet.
I have a few pics from LA Auto show i still haven’t posted and wanted to share. I thought i’d be done with the coverage by now but i’m always forgetting to update it. So with that said. here’s a little throw back of the LA Auto show. Part 2 of 3
BMW i think has shown this concept before in the past years but it’s always an eye catcher.
Caught this at the Mercedes Booth and was kinda thrown back at the concept of this SUV. Looked like a cross of a Land Cruiser and 4Runner but with a Mercedes badge. Still liked it but who knows if this concept will see the production floor.
Over at the Lexus booth . Nuremberg LF-A
LF-LC looks bad ass.
Fatlace Ben Sopra needs no introductions …
I think this was 1 of 2 S2000’s I saw at the show.
This Merc totally caught me off guard. Didn’t think much of it besides ey look super clean classic car. Till I walked over to the front of the car and saw the hood up and what i found under the hood O.o WOW!
Wasn’t the model that WOW’d me but …
The 2JZ-GTE fitted in the engine bay!!! There’s wasn’t many mods to the stock 2JZ but it was nice to see it in an old Merc style Benz. The car also was sporting a face lift interior. IS250 dash gauges and center console fit just perfect in the car. Wish I had more photos but memory card problems = FAIL and pictures didn’t come out. 😦
I wanted to throw an update of my Benz build. Since I had a car care day Saturday.
New hood emblem
Hopefully project Benz goes well. Have some other things in mind. Let the build continue …
