Wekfest Los Angeles 2015 Coverage…Part 2 of 2…

I feel this giant weight lifted off my shoulders now that I am finally getting the bulk of the coverage from the last few weeks up on the site. Haha, I was beginning to get slightly stressed-out about when to schedule all these updates to go up because there is still so much going on this summer. I have to head to Seattle this weekend for work and the following weekend I fly to Chicago to attend a Gridlife/Fatlace event. I’ve never been out there for anything automotive-related before so it should be interesting. After I get back from Chicago, I think I may have a free week until my buddy Yasu from Japan comes into town. He’s in need of some rest and relaxation so I told him to fly over to the U.S. so he could check out the Norcal Wekfest event. He’s never been to Northern California so I wanted him to see just how different the two major regionss of California are from one another. He had originally planned to stay just for Wekfest but since the Spocom Anaheim show follows the weekend after, I suggested he stay for that as well…

There is much to come so I invite you to stick around for the journey with us. Over the weekend, I even made a day-trip up to San Francisco to attend the Blox Evolution event. I didn’t get much in terms of photo coverage but I did manage to do some video blogging with Ryan Der and Yuta Akaishi. I literally just took a break from cutting that video so I could upload the rest of the photos from Wekfest LA ’15. This below is the second and concluding portion of that event. I honestly could have split it up into three parts with all the photos I captured but I figured I’d just unload it all here today and you guys can take your time looking through it. The more posts I find myself making, the more cluttered I’m worried it will become so it might just work out better this way with a large cluster of images. The next video blog should be finished by tonight and will feature snippets of behind-the-scenes footage from all four shows that we documented in the last four weeks. Just typing it all out sounds sort of overwhelming but I promise, it is good stuff, haha. With that said, I need to get back to cutting the video so enjoy the shots below. Thanks for the support and as always, thanks to Wekfest USA for having me…

I heard that Lisa Nguyen’s IS had quite the tumultuous journey coming from Texas to LA for Wekfest. I don’t know all the details but at some point they lost contact with the transporter because of the crazy floods in Houston or something along those lines. Glad it made it to the show safely though…
