Damn, I’ve been sitting on these photos for so long that I almost forgot about them. There has been so much going on lately that there is just some photos that managed to get lost in the mix. I still got some photos from HKS Premium Day to go over and post up but I really wanted to take a break from all the event coverage lately to show you guys some unpublished photos from a shoot I did for Super Street last year.

Happy Monday folks! Today is a special day in that it is the annual celebration of my birth into this crazy world so I’m going to go spend some time with friends. Before I go and do that, here is the second half of the Wekfest Hawaii 2015 coverage! This covers the actual show portion of the event and many of the great builds that were present at the show. I know I may have been a little harsh with my words in the first portion of my coverage but I have hope for the Hawaii car enthusiasts community. There are guys and gals on this island that are reppin’ hard and doing their best to push their community forward. I have nothing but respect for them and applaud them for their efforts. Thanks Hawaii for the hospitality and for having me! Enjoy and, as always, I appreciate the support!… Continue Reading
