Rain or Shine, there was plenty of heat in attendance at the AutoCon car show in Miami, this was AutoCon’s first show down here in Miami and they did a great job hosting it. Companies such as Vossen, Eurowerks, Strasse Forged, and Exclusive Motoring. Team Fortuneminds was also one of a few teams that came out swinging and took home 8 awards, including best team.
Cars and Cappuccino is a monthly meet of European Car enthusiast, think Cars and Coffee but you can actually meet and talk to the owners of your favorite cars. I’ve been attending on and off for over a year and I think it’s one of the best unknown events in Charlotte.
After last month’s announcement of KAWS‘s “PASS THE BLAME” exhibition at Galerie Perrotin, we now present the recap detailing the pieces on show. – Photo’s by Jerry Buttles of HYPEBEAST
Charlotte Showdown is a face off between East (Asian) and West (Eurporean and Domestic) vehicles. The two sides square off in a dyno competition adding torque and horse power for the 5 fastest cars on both sides, with a car show added this year as well.
I didn’t personally make it out to the track portion of the event after a long night of foolery. I drove back to Orlando and posted a quick status on my Facebook asking if anyone was taking pictures and would be so kind as to let us have a few for coverage for our readers. Kane Potter stepped up and send us a few of his shots while doing coverage for another company as well. Check out the pictures!
For the last 2 years I’ve heard a ton about BFI’s Oktoberfest, from the car show, to food trucks and local breweries. This is my first year owning a German car and I had to check the event.
In the spirit of the “TX2K” event, there was a huge pre-meet at Quaker State for the FL2K version of the drag-racing event to kick things off. As with all of the “2k events” there were a lot of fast cars in attendance and of course there was a lot of street action that followed. We’ll have those videos up as they get released on Youtube via some of the race-channels.
The Back to School Lunch Meat was on Sunday in Downtown Orlando; I just took a couple of days to relax and get everything situated since. We gave out right around 900 book bags filled with supplies for students (Kindergarden though College) and had a nice car meet under the I-4 underpass. Anyways just wanted to thank everyone for coming out and here are a couple of photos from the event.
Just a few hours away from Gymkhana Grid on ESPN X-Games starting off at 7:30PST. We’re defiantly excited to see this kinda action making its way into mainstream TV broadcasting! Hit the jump to view a video from the practice sessions.
We drove down from Winston-Salem to campus of University of North Carolina Charlotte for the weekly Modified Monday Meets. Yes a car meet on a Monday, for when you didn’t get enough car related activities for the weekend.
