Cherry Blossom Season…

Cherry blossom season always makes for some pretty scenic shots so I asked Yasu from Exceed to wake up early one morning to go get some photos of his EK9 CTR since I couldn’t be there to shoot them myself. Really wish the borders would open again so I could go back and stay for a while…

Wekfest East 2019 Coverage… Part 2…

Photos and Words by Joey Lee (@Stickydiljoe) It felt different this year. I know it felt that way to me but it’s interesting to hear that the people who attended the show this year also felt  a similar sentiment. It’s weird though because I didn’t think this day would ever come. Could it be possible …

Wekfest East 2019 Coverage… Part 1…

Photos and Words by Joey Lee (@Stickydiljoe) It’s rare for me to go back and look at some of my old posts. Today, however, I thought I’d look back to last year’s Wekfest East coverage to see what I had to say. I guess I just don’t like looking back at old posts because whatever …

Exceed Japan’s EK9 Type R Build…

Whenever Wekfest Japan comes around, I usually like to head overseas a couple days earlier just to see what my friends are working on in preparation for the event. I’ve been going since Wekfest first hit Japan and it has quickly become one of their most anticipated shows annually. Enthusiasts and tuning shops throughout Japan …
