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.   

SEMA Finale Part IV

Fatlace Ben Sopra needs no introductions … https://i1.wp.com/i3.photobucket.com/albums/y57/billshea99/IMG_1151copy.jpg

I think this was 1 of 2 S2000’s I saw at the show. https://i1.wp.com/i3.photobucket.com/albums/y57/billshea99/IMG_1138copy.jpg

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. 😦 https://i1.wp.com/i3.photobucket.com/albums/y57/billshea99/IMG_1160copy.jpg

Sema Coverage Part III

I thought we’d have more SEMA coverage but we had some technical difficulties with  memory card failure and forgetting to bring a back up memory card we probably only have one more part of the SEMA coverage. So a total of 4 parts of SEMA before we move on to new topics. These are a few pics from the cars that had outdoor spots and sick! I honestly wish we had more time. We really missed a lot of cars since we only had a few hours to walk the show but we hope that you the fans enjoy the coverage.

Brembo goodness.

Wheels are too dark in my opinion looks like the cars floating but in person the car looks goooood! Skyblue worked on this EVO

This Genesis was Legit! Loved the small touches and color matching

Didn’t see too many S2000’s at the show so it was nice to see a few.

HAHA.. I don’t think too many other blogs showed this colorful bus but it was definitely eye catching O_o
Apparently this was built in China and brought over to display. Very different .

This looked bad ass. Didn’t look like it was finished in time for the show but concept looks very nice. Wonder what it would look like complete?

Love old school Porsche’s and this one caught my eye!  It was nice to see something a little different done to a Porsche rather then the norm which seems to be RWB kitted and fitted. Don’t get me wrong I love RWB but just nice to see something different .

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.

Hyundai Veloster: KDM Movement

Seen a few of these cars on the Road and pictured it fixed up and wondered if others have gotten around to it and WOW what I found was surprising. Car looks AWESOME done right.

Hyundai doing real good with it’s new line up lately and it’s good to see another Import company flourish.

Hyundai Veloster : KDM sickness.

Car looks tough!!!

Now that’s an ass! haha.
