Wekfest Hawaii 2015 Coverage…Part 2 of 2…

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!…

VIP builds seem to be very popular on the island of Hawaii and there are quite a few that are done-up exceptionally well…

IMG_7289-Edit

IMG_7290-Edit

This custom widebody LS430 from EMPIRE VIP was definitely one of the best in the building that day. The wheels may be too aggressive for some but this build wasn’t put together with subtlety in mind. It is wild, aggressive, and undoubtedly captures the attention of enthusiasts whether they are into VIP style or not…
