There Is No Rival, Because There Is No Equal.

I know I’m probably gonna get some heat for this but admittedly, I took a lot of photos of the same cars over and over again during Wekfest Hawaii 2017. These are the cars that caught my eye, I’m sorry, haha. I fly down to Hawaii once a year to check out these cars and whenever something is of interest to me, I spend a lot of time going over them. The Wekfest Hawaii event isn’t very big compared to some of the other shows on the tour so you either see the same cars from year to year or you catch a glimpse of something new. I enjoyed the show but didn’t shoot much during the event itself. Most of the stuff is during the roll-in and I always find the set-up phase of the show to be much more appealing to capture. It gets kinda dry to just shoot the entire event with a tripod after the cars have already parked so I try to avoid that these days. I think that stuff is just better for the Vlog where I can give you a more detailed look of the cars up-close with the GoPro. Being that it is a smaller event, you also will notice the huge gap between the enthusiasts who have been building cars for years now, and those who are just getting into the hobby. The newer guys/gals do the whole “airbags and wheels” route while the more experienced people get more into the details and overall execution of the cars. The gap is very significant in Hawaii but I think with time, the competition level will even out a little bit more as the older enthusiasts continue to stick around to be an example for the newer generation of builders. We will see. In the meantime, check out the rest of the photos I captured that weekend in Hawaii. Thanks to everyone for looking and all the people I had a chance to mingle with out there…

The Chronicles Season 3 Vlog #2 covers our near two-week long adventure from Hawaii and back once again to Japan for a very special event…

In Part 3, we dive right into the first day of the 2017 Osaka Auto Messe event. Tiffanie, who is usually used to being behind the camera more than in front of it, stepped up to the plate to work the Auto Messe event as the spokesmodel for the Mode Parfume/Autofashion USA/Chronicles booth. When you have a model at these types of events in Japan, you’re sure to run into some interesting people so you get to see Japanese perversity in full force. Since it was a 3-day long event, I paced myself in terms of walking around the show but you’ll get to see some of the many cars at the show detailed in this video. We also try to force Yuta to talk to this girl at the show but he refuses to and we have some fun with it. Check it out!!… Continue reading

**DON’T MISS OUT ON THE WEKFEST HAWAII 2017 COVERAGE POSTED BEFORE THIS!**

The Chronicles Season 3 Vlog #2 covers our near two-week long adventure from Hawaii and back once again to Japan for a very special event…

Part 2 details our long day setting up for the 2017 Osaka Auto Messe event. The show is a 3-day long event but technically, it is a total of four days including setting up the booth and roll-in. We’ve never done anything like this before so it is one of the rare times you’ll get to see an event of this magnitude from behind-the-scenes. We start out at Exceed Japan, where we do final preparations on the JZS161 Aristo for the show, and then head over to Mode Parfume to pick-up the Integra. The Integra has a brand new front end and lip designed by Mode/Blow Design and would be one of the centerpieces to our booth display. Along with the Aristo and Integra was a Z34 Fairlady featuring a brand new complete aero kit and exhaust by Mode Parfume. They still had final touches to do on the Z34 before it would leave to the show so we went ahead of the rest of the guys to check-out the set-up process and how the Mode Parfume/Autofashion USA/The Chronicles booth was looking…
