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.

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
