Oh anniversaries. It comes once a year, well, depending on how you look at it I guess like last October I celebrated the 9th year anniversary of my 21st birthday. Yeah. OK. Moving on. It never really is a big deal for me to celebrate such things but as of now, any establishment or institution, shit even relationships celebrating the first year is quite a feat. That’s why last weekend I joined up all the fun with the homies of ItsJDMyo.com and celebrate a momentous occasion.
See last Saturday was a huge event packed day for automotive car meets. Early in the morning was the hellaflush meet in Venice which, I was told, was attended by over 800 cars and that includes squad cars of the LAPD handing tickets all around. I’ve heard mixed stories but I can’t really judge on how it was since I wasn’t there. Some people said it was boring as fuck, some people said it was dope, some said they like walking on the beach on a sunny Saturday morning but to me, I really can’t say anything since, as I said, I wasn’t at the event. All I know is that if you get bored, it’s your fault since boring people get bored. The rest find shit to entertain themselves.
Anyhooo back to the topic at hand. The ItsJDMyo was pretty dope. Quite organized for a meet so I have to give Tony and the rest of the crew props for keeping the pseudo car show pretty legit. I wasn’t really expecting much but just a bunch of cars parked next to each other but I was blown away on the attendance and the amount of effort these guys poured into the event. Seriously, this meet would have rivaled most car shows. Just sayin’ …
Food trucks, dope rides, and umm yeah I think there were some girls that didn’t flake in attendance. Great time! I was actually parked on Spocom’s booth where the model area is supposed to be but I only stopped there once to grab my camera. It was inside the garage and there were plenty of heat to go around for everyone. And by heat I mean IT WAS FUCKING HOT INSIDE!!! So I opted for the sunlight and chilled on Bride/Ings+1 booth with my homies Shinosuke and KJ. If you don’t know who those people are, google it. You probably won’t find anything about them but eh… it was worth the try.
Now on to some pictures… Yes I took out my camera and shot a few shots using Shinno’s Uber awesome, extremely heavy 35mm f2 CarlZeiss Lens. It was pretty baller and legit. It only had manual focus so I had to turn up the photography skills to 11 and start shooting. Unfortunately with my laziness owning me (and the asada fries cambing in my belly from one of the food trucks) I shot a mean 49 clicks of my camera and called it a day. Yes I was there for about 6 hours and I shot 49 photos. That’s just how I roll.
I drove the G35 to the show to show some love for the crew. The car was so dusty and muddy when I brought it there since its been daily driven pretty much … errr … everyday. I think it needs a re-tune since it’s been drinking up way too much gas. Perfect for these high gas price situations.
Joseersssssssssss. One of our ex ACElite Members who is going back to his roots. Being an ACE Member =) We drove up and met up on the 101 just like old times. But unlike old times, his seats are now mounted and not just ziptied to the floor.
I don’t know who’s car this is really but it’s pretty clean. I actually spent time and photoshopped the owner out since you can see him. His reflection is still on the car coz I got lazy and called it a night. Why did I spend so much time at it? Well, because if you look at it, it reminds me of the green hornet movie where Kato does his Kato vision thing where he kicks someone and it goes flying, matrix style. But with this, it’s a bunch of Toyota Siennas.
…. oh and this one. Freddy from AutoFashion is dreammyyyy; can kill me with one punch. Hahahaha fun fact, Freddy is actually my brother in law’s good friends back in the days and we didn’t even know that they knew each other and vice versa. Small world indeed.
That’s about the gist of things. This ends the “coverage” if you want to call it that. I just call it a mix of words and photos. Ummm yeah give me a break I did the best I could. Peace out girl scouts!
