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.

Auto Fashion USA Grand Opening 3/10/13 P.1

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.

CR8TIVE: Kandy Purple AE86

Details details details.. it’s all in the details and this AE86 is chalk full of little details and perfection that i wouldn’t even begin to try and describe. I was lucky enough to be friends with the owner(s) of this AE86 from  Creative Car Audio and Motorsports and see this car being built and go to shows and park together (when i was showing) was awesome! Feels like such a long time ago now. Which it probably is, but still they were good times.

Since then the Hachiroku has been sold to someone in NY and i haven’t heard the where about since. Hopefully it’s still in one piece and the owners enjoying the car and it’s quality parts.

S13: Wrench time

Today I realized that I haven’t posted in a week sorta neglected the site and I apologize for the lack of updates. I wanted to post up something a little different from the show cars, drift cars or cars with parts some just drool over. Rather, I wanted to share a more of a simple everyday build that someone spent the wrench time and put it together at home while still having street appeal and a track look. I’m not sure if this one hits the track but it looks purpose built.  SR20 under the hood, fitted TE37’s and a clean kit. Very nice. I would probably do without the stickers on the windows but everyone has their own steez.

Enjoy!

Feedback is always appreciated.
