H2o International 2013 (Ocean City, MD): Official Video #2

I know I’m not alone when I share the belief that cars have brought strangers together and turned them into the best of friends. There’s just something about sharing a passion and lifestyle with people that truly understand. As a community, we dive into this lifestyle and we build so much anticipation to get even more of it. H2Oi is a beautiful, chaotic hub of immersion and anxious anticipation. Created around the Volkswagen/Audi scene and now attracting even more enthusiasts, H2Oi sweeps into Ocean City every year almost overnight and provides us a world of automotive expression. The whole experience at H2Oi is unreal as slammed cars drive by in every direction, every second. The community takes over the city’s streets and we come together in parking lots, hotels, condos, beaches, and restuarants. It’s exciting to be a part of this immersion. Along with the insanity and constant burnouts, we also get a chance to cruise, relax, and enjoy the getaway. The time spent at H2Oi feels so good because we really look forward to it every year. We utilize social media to hype it up and we see everyone on Instagram talking about it. H2Oi is such a popular event because the craziness runs wild in the streets, but the passion and friendship can be felt everywhere. The timeless memories can never be forgotten, and I’m honored I can capture such a unique staple in the automotive world with this video.

H2o International 2013 (Ocean City, MD): Official Video #1

The level of H2O hype continues to shatter all previous years as each new September rolls around. Along with that hype, comes preparation. All of you who frequent Instagram have witnessed the phenomenon of “#h20prep”. If you were curious enough to search that hash tag in the weeks counting down to h2o this year, you would have seen people literally building cars. Not just swapping wheels or getting last minute coilovers on, but bodywork, interiors, full re-sprays, and shaving bays. This continued all the way up to mere days before departure for Ocean city. The amount of work that people attempted to complete (and in most cases completed), in the weeks before H2O is mind blowing. With that being said, I felt it was only appropriate to start off this year’s video with a tribute to the amount of work all of you performed, with the vision of your completed project making its appearance on Coastal Highway. I had the privilege of arriving on Tuesday and watching the madness unfold as cars poured into Ocean City. I sat in a lawn chair by the 62nd street Bridge one day late in the week to watch cars arriving. The expressions on people’s faces as they roll onto the strip for the first time is priceless, we all know that feeling. With the Cars and Cameras opening party, air affair, and a hundred other themed meets, there was never a dull moment at H2O. Only 51 more weeks until next year.

H2o International 2013 (Ocean City, Maryland): Official Photo Coverage (Part 1)

h2oi_2013_SEMPEK_Cover

If you thought Christmas was “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year”, someone lied to you; they’ve never been to Ocean City, Maryland during the last weekend of September.

H2Oi has all the ingredients to make the perfect weekend: an amazing venue with a beach, a strip to cruise, large parking lots to congregate, and hundreds upon hundreds of cars toting around thousands of enthusiasts to the tune of VR6 exhaust notes, air ride systems dumping their pressurized contents, and the smell of burning rubber. Ingredients so perfect, in fact, that many people have started showing up earlier and earlier in the week and making a full, week-long vacation out of it (much like the Europeans do with Worthersee Treffen in Austria). It’s the most anticipated show of the year in the Euro community with people building cars for months (and sometimes years) with THIS show as their deadline.

Third Time’s A Charm: Alexx K’s Stunning Hyundai Genesis Coupe

Alexx_K_Genesis_Coupe_COVER

There are throngs of gearheads out there addicted to a make; those who would consider themselves “brand loyal” with an exclusive taste for Honda, Volkswagen, Ford, etc. Sure, they may be car enthusiasts who have an appreciation for all things automotive but they reserve their funds and driveways for the one make they love. Going a step further, there are those who are addicted to a specific model of a specific make and find themselves with multiple vehicles of the same model over the course of their lives or even at the same time. We all know that guy who wouldn’t even consider life without an M3 or Integra in the garage (running or not). You know, the people who have an EK hatch or Mustang for the track, another for daily driving, one more that’s “destined for greatness”, and another on jack-stands behind the garage as a parts donor. Whether it is multiple generations of the same model or just one specific chassis, these guys have a deep, unbreakable bond with their steed of choice.

Shake & Bake: Rickyy Bobby’s Honda Civic EM2

Ricky_Bobby_EM2_COVER

Driving a slammed car daily isn’t something that’s done easily. It is a sacrifice that one must accept at a particular point in their car’s life. It could be when you first buy your car and know that it’s going to end up on the ground, or that first time you buy your coilovers, or even the day you just decide you no longer want any functionality left in your car. For Rickyy Bobby it started when he first bought his car, and it’s evident when seeing the history of  cars he’s owned. Driving around with Rickyy I witnessed a radically different geography of the streets of Toronto, where a map was obsolete simply because maps do not describe the condition of the roads ahead. Rickyy, however, has a map in his head of which routes he has to take to navigate his car to his destination, or which roads no longer exist to him simply because his static chassis is millimeters from the ground. With harsh conditions all winter and construction happening nonstop during summer to fix the damaged roads this isn’t an easy task.

Endless Possibilities: Raymund Young’s VIP Lexus GS430

Raymund_Young_VIP_Lexus_GS430_COVER

With the growing popularity of the VIP style scene in North America every enthusiast seems to try to push the envelope with more force than the next guy when it comes to modifying their car. What once started as simply working with a big body sedan with wheels and a drop to emulate the Yakuza mobsters’ ride of choice has now turned into an ever growing and ever changing canvas to work from with endless possibilities. Raymund Young at Royal Flush sculpted his masterpiece with detail that would make Picasso proud.

Marc Davis has gone through four exterior colors, four suspension setups, and a handful of wheels in his seven years of ownership.

VAG Fair 2013 (York, PA): Official Video

None of my friends had ever been to VAG Fair before so this year we decided we should see what all the hype was about. I have to say Corey Sterling has organized an impressive gathering. VAG Fair, which takes place at the Fairgrounds of York Pa, is a relaxing weekend of camp fires, ice cold beer and European cars. Unique to most shows, camping at the show grounds is welcomed and it turned out to be a blast. Of course for those more inclined to sleep in a real bed, the Best Western and Holiday Inn are only a mile from the show and they provide nightlife for the weekend by hosting huge meets. There’s no doubt we’ll be heading back next year. Enjoy!

Taking the Next Step: Ricky Granado’s Seductive Hyundai Genesis

DJRick_Genesis_COVER

Your first car, that car that is usually one that you may not have gotten to exactly pick out yourself but still turns out to be one filled with memories. For a car enthusiast it’s our first hit of what will eventually become a life-long addiction; a life filled with a passion for anything on wheels. For Ricky Granado, he started with a 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer. Its looks were tolerable and its performance was lacking but it would last him through the ups and downs of his first years behind the wheel and would give him just a taste of what would come to fruition in the following years.
