There Is No Rival, Because There Is No Equal.

The East Coast leg of the Wekfest tour is always an interesting one…. Not so much because there is a ton of change from year to year, it’s actually quite the opposite. The last two years I’ve attended, there wasn’t a whole lot of change in terms of the cars that attended. If I put the photos side by side from 2013 and 2014, you almost wouldn’t even notice a difference. There are a lot of contributing factors to that but I think it has a lot to do with both the weather as well as the level of competition that exists out there. The cold seasons really don’t allow for very many changes to vehicle builds because guys can’t drive their cars anyways and many are just stored for the winter. Because of this, they don’t really focus on rebuilding and instead just bring their cars out to cruise whenever they can. Out here in the West, it is much different. Our seasons don’t really affect how we build our cars and because of the competitive-nature of enthusiasts out here, cars are constantly changing and evolving. On the right coast, that doesn’t seem to be the case. Cars tend to stay about the same and a bulk of the enthusiasts who do drive their cars throughout the year aren’t as aggressive about tearing down their cars and rebuilding them from the inside-out. I completely understand why this happens and I think that is why there is such a huge gap between the highly-competitive show cars and the lightly-modded “daily drivers”. There’s almost no in-between. You go into these shows with a pretty good idea of who is likely to win something already but it is still always great to chat with everyone because you want to hear about how enthusiastic they are about their builds. It doesn’t matter if they are going to win or not, all these guys go into it thinking that they have a shot, and that’s a great thing… Continue Reading

Part 3 brings the Wekfest East event to a conclusion with a look at some more of the builds present that day. You get to see some of the cars roll-out of the venue after and then follow the Wekfest staff and I on some adventures in both New Jersey and New York City. Always included is some documentation of some of the foods we like (and dislike) eating during our trips. If you don’t like the food stuff, you don’t have to watch it. Enjoy… Continue Reading
