Los Angeles Roadster Show

I go to the Roadster show to not look at roadsters, but rather to check out the cars and cool junk at the swapmeet.

There was some neat stuff this year.

I've always been a fan of vans... but lately I've been obsessed. My brother was checking out a caddy while I was geeking out over this van.

This little Econoline is just cool.

Susan taking the Bean Bandits Bonneville racer for a spin.

Is there life after loco?

Y que?

This was a cool sign.

Overall I had a great time at the Roadster Show. Cars are awesome, but hanging out with good friends makes it even better!

Low Rider Weekend

Saturday Night I had the pleasure of going to the Capitol Drive-In (San Jose, CA) with Big Watcha, Lil Watcha and Ralph. We got there late (thanks to me) and it was really dark by the time I could snap some pics... There was some nice low riders out.. Here some of what I captured.

After the movie we had to go get some tacos at Tacos El Paisa

Good Times!

Marina Swap

Woke up early this past Saturday morning to check out the Marina Swapmeet with my homeboy Silk.

He was looking for parts for his motorcycle build. I was just looking.

Roscoe's roadster always looks good!

There was a bunch of nice stuff.. Wish I had more money

I really wanted to get these for a van I don't have

Despite driving a Hummer this dude had some nice Triumph and Harley stuff.

I had to get these, they're cool and I talked the guy down to the right price.

Knock Offs

Too bad it was just the box.

Really cool!

DOT approved?

I got out of there with Hubcaps, A license plate frame that reads "Lets boogie," and a Rod Powell designed hat. Silk found some fog lights that will be turned to a headlight for his moto and some red lenses that might make neat tail lights.

The Marina Swapmeet is growing every year and there is always some deals!

Beer Fest 2010

I've been going to the Beer Fest 3 years now. It's always a great time!

This year was a little different for me. I knew I would be in a hurry but I really wanted to go snap some photos.

The lines are always long..

The Legend himself was double fisitn!

Filler Up please!

Primas T.C. & Danielle hung out with me while I was there.

People always dress for the occasion.

A label I designed.

Lots of people drinking lots of beer

Rod & Elgene.

Beer Fest 2010!

Next time I hope to be there longer, drink more, and take more pictures!

Here are some shots from Thursday night and Friday Night

Here's Abraham & Will hanging one of Abraham's pieces.

Corvette Summer

Ki and I have been trying to shoot his dad's Corvette for the last 2 weeks... Rain, family and work have kept us from shooting it until last night.

We pulled in to the storage unit where the Corvette has been stored for years with only 30 minutes to shoot.

I think we did all right and still had about 10 minutes before the storage closed their gate..

This bad boy is going in to Spectrum Auto Collision in Salinas for a full restoration.

Ki's dad has two first year Vette's, this one here is number 18 off the production line... I can't wait to shoot the 'after' shots.
