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!

The First Kuya Model Expo has came and gone and it is safe to say it was a fun and enjoyable event. Plenty of models in attendance such as Jerri Lee whom was host and MC for the Expo, Emma Rose, Lilly Wang, Raichelle Verado, Nicole Reckers, Raquel Estrella, and Miss Super Street 2013’s Sandra Wong to name a few. The Event  had various Vendors in attendance such as; Equilibrium USG and Pinoy Street Team Gear , a  fashion show by Legacy Reign; a new up and coming clothing line. Last but not least, prizes were raffled off and a vote, by attendees, for their favorite model was held whom was none other then, Ms. Sandra Wong.

Its JDM Yo! would like to Congratulate Big Abe on the success of what we forecast to be the first of many more to come of the Kuya Model Expo.

A good turnout for the 4 year meet held at Eibach HQ in the City of Corona California. As to be expected in Southern California, it was a hot 90 degrees throughout the afternoon. Despite the heat, the Honda enthusiasts came with great assortment of  the favored EG, along with the Integra Type R and the Honda S2000 to name a few. And, although the meet primarily consisted of Honda’s and Acura’s, there were a few other vehicle types represented.  The crowd was in good spirits and Show Models Holly Lee and Emma Rose were there to meet and greet fans, take photos, and help with award presentations. When it came to the Its JDM Yo Crew, our members were there providing water to attendees, not to mention, an almost full representation of our crew cars. All in all, a nice relaxing afternoon with good company…who can ask for more.

Perfect day for a show, and an even better location. Who doesn’t like the beach? This show brought everyone out to the warm and sunny beaches of Huntington Beach. Quite the array of vehicles as well as models in attendance. The show favored NOS energy drinks was on hand passing out beverages along with Dogzilla Hot Dogs food truck for attendees eating enjoyment. One of the shows highlights would have to be the festivities held on the main stage such as the Bikini contest. Asides all else, show had various vendors and vehicles represented from numerous names in the industry. All in all, not a bad way to spend an afternoon at the beach.  Congratulations to our crew members who brought home awards as well as a special Thanks to the models for your generosity and kindness by working with me on the images provided.

Could it get any HOTTER!!! ….It was another beautiful sunny day in Southern California as I set out with the men and women at “Its JDM yo” to venture out and about the show grounds, located in the front parking lot of the Santa Anita Race Track in the city of Arcadia.

The majority of my coverage highlights our cars that were in attendance representing “Its JDM yo”…and, of course, we cant forget the models…ooohhh the models. A fan favorite, Danni Riel, was in attendance and generously took the time to meet and greet every one of her many fans and supporters who had lined up early in anticipation of her arrival. Asides from the models, this show had some uncommon, but welcomed participants; road rally organization Targa Trophy (with BBI Autosports) was out promoting their upcoming Los Angeles to Vegas rally event, along with one of car enthusiasts favorite luxury and exotic car tuner: HG Motorsports (HGMS) displaying their gorgeous black Ferrari 458 amongst the BBI Autosports Porsche 997 turbo. With the models and the cars spoken for, we move on to the food offerings… and what an offering it was. The variety of food trucks with their own unique meals and deserts was a welcomed addition to this show. As the show came to a close, the awards were handed out and once the dust settled, the “Its JDM Yo” team walked away with five trophies…Great job fellas!!

Special Thanks to the models and vehicle owners for working with me for the images.
