Wekfest East 2015 Coverage…Part 2 of 2…

I’m not gonna sit here and lie to you and tell you that I haven’t had a ton of shit going on back here at home. Most of you guys who follow me on my various social media outlets can see that. I’ve been traveling trying to cover events all over and it doesn’t make things any easier when I get home and it is HOT AS FUCK. Phaze2 HQ doesn’t have A/C, even though I told myself last year that I wouldn’t go another summer without it but being that the summer hadn’t been that bad this year, I thought I’d just kinda suck it up and survive. Well, I was wrong. The summer heat just decided to come later this year and I am dying in this fucking weather. Even at night the shop is hot as fuck and I’m sweating my ass off trying to upload content and edit video. I just got back from Final Bout 2 in Wisconsin and I thought it was bad out there. I come home and it is just as bad, if not worse this week. Temperatures have been in the triple digits and it makes me not want to do anything because it is just dreadful here at HQ. Yuta is trying to build a car in the shop too and I don’t even understand how he does it because he works all day as a mechanic in an even hotter part of the city…

In any case, I finally got around to uploading the rest of the Wekfest East 2015 Coverage. Sorry for the delay but some of the photos were actually spoken for and have now been uploaded to the Drivingline magazine website located HERE. So if you don’t see your car in this post, I either missed you or your car is posted up over there. Give it a gander as the photos were mostly shot in sequence and there are no doubles that are posted on both sites. Alright, I can’t take this anymore. I’m sweating my balls off just sitting here typing with two fans blowing directly into my fucking face. Haha, it is so bad. Today especially since it feels like its progressively getting hotter as the night goes on. I’m gonna go figure out how to drown myself in ice coffee or just hang out in the shower the entire night until my entire body prunes up and I look like Brad Pitt did in the beginning of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button…

Thanks for looking and thanks to the Wekfest crew for having me. Enjoy the photos and make sure to check out the rest of it posted on Drivingline.com….

Not sure if many of you guys will remember this car but this EF9 SiR was actually once a Cali-based build owned by my buddy Mauricio. He sold the Civic and the new owner had the whole car repainted. It looks as great as it ever did now, especially on the Barramundi Design Star Marlin wheels…
