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.

Dub Show Tour – Anaheim 2013

Words by Gilbert

And this weekend marks another edition of the DUB show tour in Anaheim, CA. I was there only for a couple hours to bring you coverage of familiar models that we all know. I was mostly around the vendor area walking around shooting the booths. With the earliest memory I have of the DUB Show, it’s nice to see that not much has changed and the styling and atmosphere is still the same.

AutoCon 2013 Coverage

Words and Photos by Chris Bennett , A.k.a. Bennett for Its JDM Yo!

 

I’d first like to apologize for the delay in this posting… now thats out of the way.. .lets get to what you came to our site for… babes and cars! Auto-Con this year, like last year, was held in the city of Arcadia in the parking lot of the Santa Anita Race Track. However, unlike last years show, it wasn’t 1000 degrees out! however, there was still a good turnout from spectators to view the car and model filled show as well as enjoy the variety of food trucks on hand. Congratulations to our team members who received awards for their rides and, i think we can take this time to pat ourselves on the back for taking Best team! Great job everyone!  Special thanks to the models and vehicle owners for aiding me in capturing our shots.  See you at the next show!

AutoCon 2013 — Part 1

Words by Gilbert.

Trying to do a little catch up with event coverage and Autocon has come and gone. Big thanks to Justin Fong and his crew for some fun times at the event. Personally, I wished there was a little more space but I managed to get everything to work and get my shots. There were vendor booths placed throughout the event as well as a huge drive-up stage where they introduced cars and owners throughout the day. As well as the main AutoCon Model Lounge that featured some familiar faces.

Directly across from us was Lyna Ly Sparks and her crew of lovely ladies

BimmerFest 2013: Pasadena Rose Bowl Model Coverage

Words by Gilbert

Couple saturdays ago was a crazy day for events and coverage.  There were 3 events running along a single afternoon and maybe only 3 of the hours overlapped so trying to run around all over to get coverage proved to be a challenge.  I made my way up to Pasadena Rose Bowl for some quick model coverage at Bimmerfest 2013. It was actually quite warm that day so I was slightly worried about the It’s JDM Yo!!! 3 year Just Doing Me Social.  For those of you in the car scene, you all know that JDM is “Japanese Domestic Market”. We here at It’s JDM Yo!!! also decided to expand the anagram a bit and just call it “Just Doing Me” so we’re not limited to only japanese cars, and appreciate builds just for being builds.

Well, enough of that banter, check out the lovely ladies at BimmerFest that day.  I do apologize for not getting to some of the models that day, I realized I missed quite a few after I had left the venue.
