Dayuum 2 Year Anniversary

Words by Gilbert

If you’re local to the southern california area, you know when there’s a Guppy Grand Opening, Dayuum is always out there in full force promoting it. This was Guppy’s 8th location to open up and it was actually a pretty huge success as well.  There was lots of foot traffic for a restaurant’s grand opening and there were plenty of people in queue to get into the restaurant to eat at the Taiwanese style eatery.

As well as models in various costumes like Arley Elizabeth, Serena Su, Ashley Clark, Regina Meii, Marie Alvarez and Lily Evans. I didn’t manage to get all their photos though, so I apologize for that.

Formula D Round 7: Title Fight 2013

Words by Gilbert,

As the Formula D seasons comes to another close and a new champion is crowned, the venue returns to Irwindale Speedway. This time, we didn’t have a booth so I just headed to the venue just as it was opening to the public. For future reference, show up early because parking was ridiculous at that time and I almost couldn’t find a spot. On to the show side, I didn’t have track access again so I couldn’t get any of the awesome drifting action so there’s only model coverage from the Vendor spaces that occupy the car show side.

Pacific BMW Accessoryfest 2013

Words by Gilbert.

This was my second time attending the BMW Accessoryfest event and this year was a bit more exciting than I remembered compared to last year’s.  Mostly because they went all out with a full-on fashion show to showcase their apparel and I thought it was fairly well organized. Also, there were plenty of music and things going on throughout the day to keep you occupied, whether it was grabbing some food, getting some beverages from the octoberfest theme-dressed ladies, relaxing in the customer lounge or just checking out the cars that were in the lot.

Of course, being a BMW event, MFest was there with a strong presence and industry regular models like Sandra Wong, Arley Elizabeth and Jessica Weaver were in attendance.

There were also some interesting cars that caught my attention while walking through the lot. Primarily the Steve Urkel car from Family Matters. I remembered his was painted red but I’ve never seen this car up close before.

Adventures with Big Abe — R1 Concepts Meet

Words by Gilbert

I had heard about the R1 Concepts event from a couple fellow photographers in the scene and I was kinda hesitant on attending the event, mostly because it was last minute on my schedule and I had other events that day, but I’m kinda glad i did go. Got to hang out with Big Abe for a bit of adventuring, good company.

Abe was rocking his latest bling, the R1 Concepts brake rotor + caliper

Once again, that thing is legit. The weight is just massive.

Even Amber was having a bit of difficulty lifting it, probably because it was still chained to Abe…

Eventually, I saw the “Big Abe” special at Klouds Vapor that happened to have a booth there that day. Definitely something to check out.

As per the usual, I try to include some model coverage at these events so check out the hotties in no particular order.

Auto Gallery 2013

Words by Gilbert

Another year has come for the newer show crew Auto Gallery and this year seemed a bit more laid back but still enjoyable show.  There were plenty of raffles and contests going on throughout the day to keep you occupied around the main stage as well as just checking out the rides or grabbing food off the food trucks on the scene. A new thing this year I think was that twerk competition.  Didn’t think it was really gonna happen but it did.

As usual there was a Miss Auto Gallery Pageant, although I didn’t get enough coverage of it, I think I shot most of the models on the scene that day.

It’s DTM Yo!!! – Dubfest 2013

Words by Gilbert,

It was a casual and hot Sunday afternoon and on a whim I decided to go check out Dubfest that was going on at Irwindale Speedway, so I headed out and just brought some light camera gear with me to snap some quick photos of cars and lovely girls that were there working hard at the event.
