[Event Coverage] Wekfest San Jose 2014 (Part 1)

Another year, another great event in Wekfest San Jose. And like previous years, this one was filled with nothing but the best. However, as I walked further into the venue, I did notice a lot of empty space that were still available, perhaps there were quite a bit of no shows. Either way, I thoroughly enjoyed the show and there were a huge diversity of cars from the VIPS, to the track cars, and of course the stanced and street driven cars. Personally, I’m a huge fan of the everyday street builds because we can connect to them on a more personal level, and we can learn from the builds from shows that may or may not help with our own builds.

With that said, here’s the first batch of my coverage. Unfortunately, I didn’t get shots of all the cars there even though I entered the show early with the media group. I was expecting the doors to open at 1 but they opened the doors too early and I was pressed for time and had to fight the crowd to get some half decent shots.

[Event Coverage] 2nd Annual Creative Auto Lab Meet pres. by LowerStandards

Creative Auto Lab and LowerStandards teamed up again this year to host their 2nd annual summer meet in Fresno, CA. At first I wasn’t going to make the three hour drive down from the Bay Area just for the meet but ended up spending the weekend there visiting family and friends as well, so everything worked out.

As far as the meet goes, there were quite a few cars in attendance but they were scattered in different lots and I was too lazy to walk around in the scorching heat. But, I did snap some photos from the main lot which I have posted below. Enjoy!

Lady-Driven Evo

Spotted this exceptionally clean Evo at a recent Lower Standards meet and decided to get a closer look at it. And upon closer inspection, I realized that this beautiful car was built by someone who clearly knows their parts. Then, among the host of authentic parts such as those fitted Work XD9s, there’s a Hello Kitty sticker and a license plate that said “GabyEvo”…..putting two and two together, this car was clearly “lady driven.”

Crispy Clean S2K

It’s been a long while since I’ve done a shoot, so last Sunday I was able to find some time to shoot my buddy Michael’s gorgeous S2K. I absolutely love how simple but effective the parts work on this street car and everything is there for a purpose.

Love the all black scheme of the car with just a hint of color from the SLs. The Bride buckets are also a very nice touch to the interior.

Further into the shoot I decided to jump in with my car as well!

Rev Fresno #1

Finally got around to all the photos I took from almost two weeks ago, so here is the final set of photos from that weekend. For this set, the event was called Rev Fresno. It was the first time this particular show/meet was held and I must say that I didn’t expect such a big turn out for the event. But given the nit-picky nature of myself, I opted to just snap a very limited amount of photos of the most notable cars in attendance. With that said, enjoy what I have!
