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.

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.

SpoCom 2013 Model Coverage

Words by Gilbert.

SpoCom is still one of the major popular shows to attend in so cal and this year was a great example of that. Plenty of models to go around, lots of cars with some fun and interesting builds, and did I mention there were lots of models? The event also caters to the Dancers as they have contests every year which you get the local dance crews to perform on stage and see what they’re capable of. I used to be more into that kind of stuff when America’s Best Dance Crew was still around but as of late, I haven’t had much interest in it, but it’s nice to see that there’s still nice competition going around.

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

Words and Photos by Gilbert.

With the 2013 Show season in full swing, this was the first event where almost the entire Its JDM Yo!!! Crew was out and about getting coverage and showing their cars. The event was a good starting point to set the rest of the year in motion with the new builds, new models, new crews coming out in attendance.

Also he likes to mess around with models by giving them dirty looks for fun. Ashley Malia got a taste of this.
