There Is No Rival, Because There Is No Equal.

What’s up guys…I got one more set of photos from WEKEAST today from guest photographer Raymond Leung . It’s currently 2:16am Saturday and I’m in a hotel room in Norcal using their internet so I don’t know how smoothly this is actually gonna go but I’ll attempt it. There hasn’t been an update in the last couple of days because I’ve been trying to figure out what’s wrong with the archives section of the site, as well as working on the Year.IV event and a bunch of other things in regular life. Autogallery is going on today down in Huntington Beach so be sure to check that event out if you guys are in Socal. It’ll be one of the more memorable events of the year I’m sure. The format is completely new and the entire show is held by the beach so it will give you guys a chance to hang out by the water during this crazy heatwave we’ve been having…

I’m up in Norcal right now on some personal business as well as to attend my friend Sunny’s new autobody shop’s grand opening. You knew him as the guy behind Franklin Autobody before but now he’s decided to move on and start something entirely new. Sunny has always been a good friend to me so it was important that I make the trip up here to be a part of his big day. I really didn’t want to miss Autogallery but it was one of those things where I’d be fucked either way by missing one of them so I found someone to cover Autogallery for me so that I could be up here in Norcal. It’s about as close as it’s gonna get to being in two places at once…There is just a lot going on in the community right now, which is a great thing, but not enough time to be everywhere to see everything… I’m sure Autogallery will be great though so I’m happy that I got someone to cover it for me. I’d really like to be there to do coverage myself, since Jimmy and the Praxis guys are good friends of mine but eh…you know how it goes…I’m sure Jimmy understands…

Anyways, here are some photos for you guys to look at from WEKEAST as seen through the eyes of our guest photographer, Raymond Leung, from JDM Chicago…. I’ve attached links to the previous three parts if you guys missed any of it…

Three wheel motion in Sergey’s MR-2…

7883771310_8a0d907cf2_k

The craziest part about WEKEAST was how they cruised through Times Square and how all these dudes were just down to be in the middle of the street getting photos of the cars as they drove by… It’s a cool site to see with how much is going on in the background and how busy Times Square is on any given day…

7883776790_55fd69c809_k

This guy got a nice snap of Raymond’s Evo X while he waited at a stop light…

One more shot of Sergey’s MR-2 posted up on the street. He actually sent me a link to a write-up he did on why he was messing with his fenders and painting and what not the day or so leading up to WEKEAST…Pretty interesting stuff… Click here if you wanna take a couple moments to check that out…

That’s pretty much a wrap for me for now… hope you guys enjoyed the photos and thanks to Raymond Leung for taking the time to snap these photos and provide them for me…
