Some of the best cars have been seen at Wekfest – Though it would have been nice for us to attend Wekfest Hawaii, we I couldn’t splurge the air fair. Luckily, our friend Dave Coulter hooked us up with some photos of the event. More pics by Dave Coulter after the jump. – Alex
Made a quick stop at Texas Track Works this afternoon and had a chance to take a few pics. Texas Track Works is a full-service shop and racing facility providing repairs, maintenance and upgrades for any type of vehicle. This one above is a 1995 BMW E36 M3 on 18×9.5 +38 ASA wheels soon switching over to 18×10 +25 light weight Enkei NT03+M Racing Series wheels (the purpose of my visit). More pics from our visit after the jump.
Steve Youhana’s Civic hatch has been a work in progress since the day he got. The vision that he has had with this car was constantly evolving. It started with a B16 swap, wheels and suspension. The next year it was a turbo kit. That is how I remember first seeing Steve’s hatch. Clean, Simple, and well put together. More on Steve and his hatch, including a bunch of pics, after the jump.
We had a planned photo shoot for Robby’s RX7 FD but due to an electrical issue, it wasn’t quite ready – but we stopped by any way and took some shots. The FD was dismantled as Robby spent a couple of long nights trying to chase the problem. As of Friday, there was no solution in sight! More pics after the jump.
Effective immediately, Bergenholtz Racing will postpone its participation in the 2013 Formula Drift Series indefinitely to focus resources in other efforts and opportunities. “It is with great regret that we will not be competing this year. The intensity, challenges, and excitement of drifting is something we will surely miss. Most of all, we will miss the comradery amongst all the Formula Drift Teams. We have truely enjoyed being part of the drift community/family and wish the continued success to everyone at Formula Drift and to all its competitors. ” Said Ron Bergenholtz Team Manager of Bergenholtz Racing.
It’s going to be strange not seeing Ron running around at every Formula Drift event. The Bergenholtz team has been a WMD supporter since the get go and has always showed us great hospitality in their pit. They’ve fed me, had me in their home, etc. so they will truly be missed! We hope to see you guys back on the track soon. Thanks for everything! – Alex
Toshiki Yoshioka will be switching to a BRZ from a S15. In episode 2, Yoshi takes out the transmission from the S15 and BRZ then flies to Japan to meet with Tomei powered. After a successful meeting, prep work begins on his EJ26 engine. Missed Ep1? Check it out after the jump. – WMD
The HANDICAM DIARIES is a short in-house documentary video following Toshiki Yoshioka as he challenges the 2013 Formula D and Pikes Peak season in his 2013 Subaru BRZ turbo.
Had a chance to do a quick snap on Khalid’s 1994 Toyota Supra the other day. Khalid is part of a growing car meet/car club by the name of Texas Imports Today. Not a lot of upgrades but definitely a clean machine. Can’t say I dig the XXR’s but I guess I’m a little bias. . What do you think? What wheels would you choose? In my opinion, it would look even more amazing on 18×10.5 black Enkei RPF1′s. But none the less, Khalid’s Supra is pretty clean! A big thank you to our friend Khalid for stopping by in such short notice! More pics after the jump.- Alex

I got a chance to shoot Bill Jones’ dad’s 1957 Chevy in November. I know the word Classic gets used a lot – but Bel-Air is synonymous with Classic. I’ve shot a lot of cars– this has to be one of the most photogenic if not most iconic ones I had ever had the privilege to shoot.
The only thing I’d like to add is thank you to the MAPS air museum in Akron, Ohio. If you are ever in that area stop by and support the museum.
