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.

AutoCon 2013 Coverage

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!

WekFest Los Angeles Coverage

Words and Photos by Chris Bennett aka “Bennett” for Its JDM Yo!!!

Clear skies, sunny day in the high 70’s… toss in the company of friends, models, cars, vendors, the  amazing view of Downtown Long Beach and the Queen Mary, as well as the food… can’t forget the food…. and you have your self a perfect combination for a great time…which is what WekFest was.

Its JDM Yo!!! Hosted the model lounge and represented/promoted NOS Energy Drinks. The lounge was definitely one of the hot spots throughout the show. Asides from the model lounge, there was an assortment of categories of cars to meet every type of “taste.” Its JDM YO!!! was out with our representation of cars as well as the Heavy Hitters Crew and various other enthusiast groups. S2000 and Infinities were well represented during this show as well as the long time favored EG. All in all , a great time at a great location on a perfect day.

Special Thanks to the models for working with me for the images, the father of the little guy rocking the Gatsby head gear as well as the hospitality received from vendors and Queen Mary Staff. Thank You

NEXT SHOW: THIS SUNDAY, June 1oth, Extreme Auto Fest, Angels Stadium in Anaheim. -See you there.

WekFest LA 2012 — Long Beach Queen Mary Events Park

WekFest LA was definitely a lot of fun to be at. Plenty of cars and crowds to go around, I can hardly imagine what it must’ve been like in Northern California where it’s traditionally held.  Hopefully I’d be able to attend next year but for now, here’s some model coverage that I managed to put together.

Hot Import Nights — Pomona

Words and photos by Gilbert for Its JDM Yo!!!

Hot Import Nights (HIN) made it’s roaring return in 2012 with its first show originally scheduled for Irwindale but later moved to Pomona, CA.

The venue was the usual spot in Pomona Fairplex where most car related events are held and people were lining up early for roll-in.  Like usual, I spent the majority of my time shooting model coverage and I had the privilege of escorting It’s JDM Yo!!! Hottie Eva Skye around for a bit. All in all, the show was a great kickoff for the 2012 season and looking forward to more events this year.

Let me start off by saying MERRY CHRISTMAS to all our readers and fans!  I’ve been really busy with photo editing so this post naturally came a bit late.  AutoCon was definitely poppin’ with all the car crews and homies coming out.  I spent most of my time helping around here and there at the booth and shooting models as usual.  Enjoy the coverage!!!

Big props to Kuya Protection who always watch over all the lovely models.

Also a congratulations to the Vanguard Collective for bringing home a few trophies!
