Wekfest Chicago

Chicago is called the windy city. It is an accurate nick name because not only is it windy but it is the opposite of suck. Chicago is awesome.

The convention center was absolutely massive- this was just a section of it where the show was held. MORE PICS –> [click to continue…]

Eibach Meet 2011

_MG_1493

Eibach. The name is synonymous with suspension and handling for every car guy. But if you’re a Honda fanboy (like me) its more than parts. Every spring Eibach is kind enough to lend their facilities to the Honda community. So, for years cars from all over the west coast have flocked to this event. As of late, there have been people coming from further and further. Nevada, Utah, Chicago, Maine, etc.

For what? Just to come hang out with fellow car guys and see some amazing cars. There are more magazine featured cars in the parking lot than I can even comprehend. I hope you enjoy the pics below… – ShockerJoe

MaydayGarage x SpeedHunters All Japanese Nostalgic Car Street Meet; Houston, Texas

slideshow-temp-jnc

I was in Houston, Texas at Moon Tower Inn this weekend checking out the scene at the MaydayGarage x SpeedHunters All Japanese Nostalgic Car Meet. There was a great turn out with plenty of classic Hondas, a great variety of AE86’s, Datsun 510’s and even some good non-nostalgic rides as well. As Linhbergh and John say in the video below, it’s like Fast & The Furious meant in the best case possible. You know, when I was a teen I fell in love with Houston. Though some might see Austin as the cultural center of Texas, for me, it has always been Houston. Every trend… from music to graffiti, even street car culture has always hit Houston before any other city in Texas. Check out the pics below and feel free to share and comment!

fast five premier colleyville nos energy drink

NOS did it big in Colleyville last night for the release of the latest installment of the Fast and Furious empire. Cars, girls, music, skateboarding and all the NOS you could you drink. Oh, even a male cheerleader and some acrobatics. Ha-ha. A lot of great cars and lots and lots of people where there for the showing. Several cars reppin the WMD sticker and showing love. Enkei Wheels, Memphis Car Audio, and many other companies were in the house representing as well. Check the pics, pass them along, comment, like it, etc. Thanks Nick and Matt for the VIP pass!

My take on the movie:
The movie is great as long as you’re not expecting Oscar winning performances! If you like fast cars, things blowing up and good looking women, you’re going to love this movie. – WMD

Red Honda Civic Hatch Flush

Last night in Garland, a few dozen cars came out to Lee’s Sandwiches for the weekly Lee’s Car Meet. What Monsters Do was there to cover the meet which had a good variety of rides including a dope AE86 owned by Angelo and a few BMWs, even a new Camaro SS! Good showing, everything from the 240SX’s, Honda Civics, and VW’s!

Through the night, though the lighting was pretty bad and my flash running out of battery, I had a good time and was able to get some decent shots. Check’em out and feel free to comment and share. A big thank you to Nick of NOS Energy for inviting us out and the new Lime Green NOS is the bomb by the way! Will post part 2 soon. – Alex

F1: LEWIS HAMILTON WINS 2011 FORMULA 1 UBS CHINESE GRAND PRIX, BUTTON FINISHES 4th in Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Lewis Hamilton scored a fabulous victory for McLaren in a Chinese race of excellent drives, catching and passing Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel on the 52nd of the 56 laps as the reigning world champion’s gamble on a two-stop strategy – and a 25-lap run on Pirelli’s hard rubber – just failed to pay off.
