Wekfest San Jose 2017 Coverage… Part 2…

Daaaamn… I just got back from Seattle and realized I didn’t post the second half of the Wekfest San Jose 2017 photos yet. So…here they are. As mentioned before, I just ran out of time like I did in Long Beach and just didn’t get all the photos I wanted. For Seattle, I really just sort of sat back and re-adjusted myself and focused mainly on shooting. The Chronicles Vlog turned-out really well with a ton more coverage thanks to Ryan Der so make sure you go watch that if you’re interested in seeing more great builds from San Jose. I don’t know how the Seattle Vlogs will turn out because I haven’t really even looked at the footage yet but I’ll try to make the best of that as well. If it doesn’t come out as good as the San Jose footage, it’ll be completely okay because I am so excited about how the photos from this trip came out. Please make sure to come back for that as I have plenty to say in regards to that show, that particular region, and the cars that were in attendance. I promise, it’ll be good, trust me on that. The Japanese guys that are in town visiting are leaving back to Tokyo and Osaka tomorrow morning so I gotta go have dinner with them right now. Check out these photos and look at them like they’re in appetizer for the main course that is Wekfest Seattle 2017…

Enjoy!!…

I didn’t have the right lens to get a good shot of the engine bay but this ratted-out Datsun 510 actually had a 13B rotary engine in it and was one of the more talked about builds of the Wekfest San Jose event…

The horns of the Kinsler ITBs have been polished and he even has his own name customized on his Hybrid Racing fuel rail…

IMG_9783-Edit_2

Looks great the way it is now. Perhaps some new wheels and maybe a set of sideskirts would really give it that more sleek look…

IMG_9808-Edit

Here’s a yellow version which looks slightly better I guess since it has some color on it and doesn’t look so raw. The front fender portion is just strange but I’m glad people dig it. I don’t know if they really do or not, I’m just trying to be positive these days, haha…

IMG_9816-Edit_2

On that note, here’s my also weird-looking Infiniti Q45 which now blends in with the trees (which is what I was going for), haha. Check out my custom exhaust from Battlecraft featuring dual titanium turn-down tips…

Alright, I’m super excited about the Wekfest Seattle photos so I gotta jump back on that. Thanks for looking and make sure to come back for the new content!!…
