Wekfest San Jose 2015 Coverage…Part 2 of 2…

With so much going on lately, it seems like Wekfest San Jose happened ages ago. I finally managed to find some time to go through the rest of the photos, so I guess now is as good a time as ever to throw them up. As mentioned it Part 1, I didn’t shoot as many photos as I did in year’s past because there was just so much going on that weekend. Another big issue that weekend was I realized that I had lost my tripod some time prior to my trip to San Jose. I still do not know where it is currently actually so I guess I should start looking to purchase another one. I’m thinking I may have lost it some time between my trip to Chicago and San Jose but it looks like a lost cause now. Luckily, my homie Yuta came through and knew someone in the Bay Area that helped me rent a tripod for free that weekend. Otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to shoot these photos. I could freehand it but with venues like this, I prefer to shoot long exposure with a tripod and all. Anyways, enjoy the shots. Wekfest New Jersey is coming up in a few weeks so I’m looking forward to being out in the East Coast again. See you guys then…

One of the more notable debuts of 2015 had to be this Spoon Sports-themed CR-X build. I first saw it at the 2015 Eibach event and since then, have always stopped to get a better, more detailed look at it. There is a ton of custom work on it that you really have to see in person to truly appreciate…

Always interesting to see the public reaction of showgoers whenever they see this Accord Wagon on display. It definitely doesn’t conform to the more popular trends you see on many of the Honda builds present at Wekfest but that’s actually a great thing. The copper bits really help make this engine bay pop but the most interesting mod has to be the custom rag top…
