Beyond Statistics Meet @ V’s Performance

Words and Photos by Gilbert Chen.

I got an invitation to go check out the meet and I decided to go hang out a bit for the day. There were plenty of cars out for the Dyno Day, and at $60/pull it didn’t seem too bad. Star Car Central was in attendance briefly as well as some of the current models in the Industry. Jasmine Skye, Emma Rose, Ellie Roxx, Marissa Masuno, Diana Ochoa and Holly Lee were also around taking photos and posing with cars and different scenery around the building. Also briefly saw Ngan Vo as well but  heard she left early. All in all, a good event for a Sunday.

Formula D Round 7: Title Fight, Irwindale, CA Part 1

Words and photos by Gilbert.

For the finals of the Formula D 2012 Season, Irwindale Raceway was the battleground in which Rhys Millen, Daigo Saito and many other professional drifters were seeking the top prize for the year.  The event was in conjunction with Slammed Society car show in the vendor area and definitely drew some major crowds.  It was a sold out show bringing many different kinds of enthusiasts in to attendance along with many of the top companies today.  I’ll have to divide up the coverage as there was a lot going on as well as shooting with a couple different themes in mind.

Our very own Steve was showing his GT-R in the SpoCom Booth with some fresh new wheels.

I also spotted fellow photographer/contributor for Its JDM Yo!!! Keith “Keychain” showing his ride in the Slammed Society Showcase

Noticed Kevin from Autofashion giving his FR-S a good wipedown in the morning.

Had a little fun with Big Abe at the NOS VIP Suite. Letting Abe build his own burger resulted in this:

So now we get to the Its JDM Yo!!! Pointing Hand version 2.0

That’s all for now, Part 2 coming.

Nisei Showoff 2012

Words and Photos by Gilbert.

Nisei showoff has been one of the shows that I look forward to every year because it kicks off a week of festivities in Little Tokyo.  I kinda wish I had show some coverage of the cars this time around because I didn’t realize we forgot to get shots of the cars while everyone was trying to escape the heat that day.  I just got a small sampling of the models in attendance that day.

Spocom Super Show – 2012

Words and photos by Gilbert.

I always look forward to the Spocom Supershow and this year was no exception.  There’s always plenty of things going on during the car show like dance competitions, go-go competitions, bikini shows and other stuff.  This year it was held at the Anaheim convention center where it always was a fun time to be had.

Just the usual model coverage here so feel free to enjoy the photos.  I didn’t catch everyone’s name so apologies to those that I missed!

Don’t forget to swing by the Its JDM Yo x Inspire USA booth at HIN San Mateo this weekend!

Drive Energy Drinks booth had plenty of lovely ladies to go around.

Extreme Autofest – San Diego 2012 – Part 3

Words and Photos by Gilbert.

There was definitely no shortage of models showing up for Extreme Autofest, and Apollo and his crew did a great job arranging for the “Island Paradise” theme lounge.  There was a Sushi Bar, and even a Roasted Pig Luau going on.  Girls were handing out leis to people while sporting the hibiscus and other exotic flowers with grass skirts themselves.  On top of that, there were other models in the show as well representing their various crews and organizations.

AutoCon 2012

Words and Photos by Gilbert.

This is the 3rd installment of AutoCon hosted by Justin Fong and his crew. The venue was quite large and there was plenty of room to maneuver around to get from place to place, as well as setup for some good angles to shoot the models and cars.  The biggest drawback of the day which I’m sure everyone experienced was the crazy heat that day. But I give kudos to the staff, all the models and all the crews  toughing it out and still putting on a great show.
