On a Sunday afternoon…

Well, I really wanted to take some time during this past weekend to really do some stuff for the site. The next big event, or any event for that matter, is the annual Wekfest show and that is a little over a month away. I wanted to make sure you guys still have your regular fix of Hondas that you’re used to coming on this site to see so I planned out the whole weekend to go shoot some cars just for fun and just for practice to see if I can improve at this whole photography thing. May was out of town for work in Las Vegas so it left me with some extra time to do car stuff. It was cool overall and I had fun just doing that and hanging out with the guys. The pictures will probably drop this week after I get through with some more work and after I go through the pictures themselves. On Saturday though, I woke up bright and early to take May to the airport and then I grabbed my Q45 and took it for a car wash. It’s been months since I’ve washed it since it’s been with Ross and Midnight Garage and with all this crazy ass rain we’ve been getting in Socal, the car looked like shit. I also wanted to wash it so that I could stop by this little VIP meet that was going on. I rarely go to any VIP meets or whatever because I don’t really know many of the guys and my circle consists mostly of Honda heads, but it’s always cool to see new things.

After a fresh wash I called up DPK David to see where he was at. He wanted to check out the VIP thing too but when I stopped by the Rywire facilities…

…they were busy working on DPK Henry’s hatchback. I had planned to get some shots of it early in the morning so they wanted to clean it up a bit and do little things here and there before the shoot.

I stayed for a little bit and it didn’t seem like they were gonna finish any time soon so I took off to the VIP meet. I hadn’t seen Tony from ItsJDMYo in a while and he called me up to see where I was at. I didn’t even know he was going to the meet but it’s always cool to catch up with him so that was more incentive to go. When I got there, there weren’t really that many cars there. Tony told me like 10-15 but I think it was more like 8 cars since the other cars there weren’t really “VIP” cars. Here’s some pics from the “meet”…

My Q at the meet…

I actually just spent the whole time hanging out with Tony and just shooting the shit until he had to go to dinner with his family. David and Ryan happened to be finished by that time so we met up for dinner. Not much else happened after that. We just hung out and did our usual bullshit since we had to get up early to shoot the next day.

Sunday…

I was supposed to wake up around 5:45am to get ready but as usual, I ended up being late. Big Mike dropped by after the Vintage Manifesto party in Hollywood the night before and stayed over at my pad since he wanted to come along. We met up with David and Henry like, almost an hour and a half later and headed downtown to get some shots…

Like I said earlier, I haven’t had time to go through the shots yet but here’s a behind the scenes look after we wrapped up. It took us a couple of hours and everyone was hungry so we drove down to Long Beach to eat at Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles. Pretty random, but we ran into Bisi and his girl Hedi there and Bisi even took care of our tab, which was really cool of him. I still had to meet up with Jared later at night to grab some shots of his S2000 so we headed back to David’s to wait until he got out of work. I had to change the oil on May’s Yaris too and being that I didn’t have a garage myself to do it in, I decided to mess up David’s driveway by spilling oil everywhere…

Ryan came by in his NSX after his lunch meeting to come hang out as well…

A shot of the guys hanging out on David’s porch…

It’s a pain in the ass to wash this big ass car but I’m pretty happy to see it clean finally. It’s been filthy for so long that I almost forgot what it looked like in a clean state….

It started to get dark, and I was getting tired so I headed back home for a bit to shower and change. On the way home though I got this pretty cool shot of Ryan’s NSX. It was totally random but the shot came out pretty interesting…I’ve attached a bigger link if you guys want to see it in a larger format..

Anyways, none of the guys had tried Five Guys Burgers before and there was one not too far from us so that ended up being the dinner spot. After that it was time to shoot…

Again, I still have yet to go through the shots but here is one random ass one of us just fucking around. Jared looks terribly disgruntled but apparently, that’s his tough guy face…

Check back to see the pics later this week. It shouldn’t take my long to go through them, I just haven’t had a whole lot of sleep the entire weekend and I have a plethora of other things to go through in the mean time. Thanks for looking and thanks to all of those that helped me knock out all this site content. As much as I like to think that I do all this on my own, I always have good people around me to lend a helping hand and I truly appreciate it. Peace out for today…

  1. The hanging out pics in front of David’s house reminds me of the movie Friday. lol Awesome neverless. The VIP meet is sick in so many ways especially that black Q.

  2. Loving Ryan’s nsx on the regas. White on white is a killer look.
    How has midnight garage been since the fire? I know it’s been some time. I hope they are still doing their thing. I saw that sticker on the VIP car..

  3. It was a great weekend my friend. Thanks for letting me follow you around with my camera and answering all my lame questions about editing. Wouldnt have done that weekend any other way, another one to add to the memories. haha.
