A Community United: The 4uDrew Foundation’s S15 Silvia

The automotive community can arguably be called one of the most tightly knit groups of people. As enthusiasts, we are like family. Yes, we have our disagreements and quarrels, but at the end of the day we all have one thing in common; passion.

The following car needs no introduction. What began life as your average montego blue E92 has undergone some not-so-subtle modifications, which has rocketed it into magazines and car blogs around the world. Yes, this is Bag Riders’ famous 335i X-Drive, a car that took niche sections of the Internet and social media by storm.

WEKFEST New Jersey 2014: Official Video

This was my third year covering Wekfest’s East Coast event held in Edison, New Jersey. Heading out a little after sunrise to my first car show since coming back from studying abroad in Italy for a month was such an amazing feeling. Passing other enthusiasts on the highway knowing they were going to same show was well welcomed. On top of all that, being able to see all my friends that I hadn’t seen since way before I left or SOWO was the cherry on top. Wekfest always hosts only high caliber cars and this year was no different. There did, however, seem to be less cars than last year and a little too much open space at some points. Team Emotion, as usual, took home most of the awards at the show, well deserved at that too. After the show wrapped up I left with my friend, Harold, who you might know as Dat3voX, to do a photoshoot of his new setup. So look out for that soon. I definitely plan on attending next year’s event as well so I can say, one day, I’ve been to every one.

Wekfest never fails to feature the East Coast’s highest caliber builds in order to provide to all perceptions of style. Last year’s show set the bar pretty high for the upcoming years, but the elites of the east were up for the challenge and executed beautifully.

JDM Passion: Ping’s 1993 Nissan 240sx

Ping240_COVER

When it comes to cars we all have our favorites. For some of us we knew right away where our loyalty was, and for Ping that started when he was a kid growing up in Thailand. “All my cousins had JDM cars, so I knew that’s what I wanted,” Ping explained. The day he turned 16 was the day he became a 240 owner, and his allegiance to the JDM world became official.

BBG Stateside: Mike Vo’s Lexus GS300

Mike_Vo_Lexus_GS300_Cover

Most people claim that growing up sucks, and the simple fact that nothing can be done about it can be quite frustrating. Albeit the claims are true, but it’s not bad when you keep your passions within the current instead of letting them fade like a trend. Especially when you have a family and a wife that supports your lifestyle and work it’s that much easier to over come any type of growing pain.

Wekfest_SanJose_COVER

Some call Wekfest the Super Bowl of car shows. Regardless of what you call it, none can argue the fact that the best in the West and beyond show case here, and it truly makes this show one of a kind. Cars travel from all over just to show here at Wekfest San Jose, and some travel even farther just to be in attendance and see the high caliber of cars Wekfest always delivers. Located in beautiful Downtown San Jose the show takes place in the San Jose Convention center. With hotels and restaurants near by this location is extremely convenient for everyone in attendance. With the show being held indoors it made for a fantastic environment. The giant show area came alive with energy, music echoed from every corner of the hall and amazing high quality cars everywhere you turned… Wekfest San Jose truly makes for an awesome show. Canibeat co founders Roy Jang and Cristian Loza traveled to the show from Washington DC to vend the event and had a blast! I hope you enjoy part one of our coverage brought to you by Dj Murdok (photography), James Baxter and Josh Davis (words).
