Wekfest LA: Queen Mary 5/25/13 Part 1

Here’s our part 1 coverage to Wekfest LA. Seeing that I’ve never been to a Wekfest LA event and was stunned at the amount of great cars attending the show. I’m so used to seeing the same cars over and over in SoCal that it’s usually a breath of fresh air to go to a Wekfest San Francisco but not this time. So many awesome cars at the Long Beach Queen Mary! But, anyway… I don’t want to bore you with so much text so i’ll leave it at that. Let’s let the pictures do the talking.

Enjoy.

Our last and final post from the Formula Drift Show.

Part 1 Formula Drift Coverage

Part 2 Formula Drift Coverage

Formula Drift Long Beach Coverage

This weekend held one of the most long awaited events that really kicks off the drift season out here in SoCal’s Long Beach. Formula Drift looks to have a great turn out of cars and spectators. The gloomy weather was a definite improvement compared to past years of being out in the burning sun. The weather was a little cold for my taste but still a nice day to enjoy cars and drifting. Our event photographer Emerson (Emu ) was able to attend and bring you the coverage from the event. So BIG THANK YOU to him for the images you’re about to see. We’ll be posting the coverage in a series this week. So enjoy the first segment from Formula Drift, Long Beach.   

Formula D Tech X Import Tuner Meet P.1

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.

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

BobsYrUncle crew goes to Cars & Coffee, Irvine P.1

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.

(Pre-meet)

Finally parked and ready to walk around the meet. 

Toys for Tots: via Chuck’s Creations & Banshee Auto Tunin

I had the pleasure of going to an event this past weekend that means more then just going to show off your car or going to a meet to talk about cars, but to give a little to the community. This one was set up by Chuck’s Creations and Banshee Auto Tunin through the Marines Corps Reserve.  It was a pretty cool set up with a lot of different styles of cars and not to mention really organized event for being their first. They even had awards to give out! That was pretty top notch for a charity event. I was glad to be able to go donate a toy and hang out and take pics.  So, with that said .. on to the pics.

Thought it was pretty cool to incorporate the hatch window to the rear.

I like the diversity of the crowd when you walk around and can respect the build and enthusiasm for the car nature we all share.

This Porsche was mint!

This was another mint car! Loved every bit of it .
