Who doesn’t love a good road trip? Last week we hit the road and made our way from Sydney to Melbourne for REBUILD, a car show put on by the Melbourne community to raise money for the Philippines who have recently been devastated by Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda).
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.
As the rest of the country begins to get snow it remains sunny and 75* here in SoCal, perfect weather for Illest’s Orange County store to host their monthly Slammed Sundays event. Some of the finest cars in town made appearances, read on to see them…
Continuing our coverage of SEMA 2013 we move on to the Import and European cars. There are so many cars at this show it’s hard to capture them all, but we did notice a few trends this year. I will officially say – this is the return of the widebody. Liberty Walk, Rocket Bunny, and Fender Flares can be seen on every kind of car imaginable; whether molded in or just riveted on. Anyways check out the photos!
The Exotics of SEMA drew in a lot of excitment this year – especially with the Pre-SEMA release of the Liberty Walk Ferrari 458. There was a lot of hype surrounding those cars and they lived up to all of it. A lot of beautiful machines – the only one missing from this part of the coverage was the Pagani. I got wrapped up in talking to the guys from Pagani with a friend and forgot to take an actual photo. Domestics, Imports/Euros, & Truck/Jeeps coming tomorrow!
As always, with great car events come beautiful models; This year Nalanie and I tried to cover all the models and really show the event from end to end. Of course with the coverage popping up online – we did miss a few but never the less enjoy! More coverage coming soon including; Exotics, Domestics, Import & Euro, and Trucks & Jeeps.
2013 was our second year attending SEMA, and it was bigger and better than ever! This year we decided to stay for a whole week so we could go to the show, hang out with our industry friends, knock out some photoshoots, and of course – go to the RIDES party! This is the first part of out coverage, with more to come by Ravi, Nalanie, and Garrett. We also have some SEMA car and girl features coming up, so stay tuned for that too!
Along with all the craziness that is SEMA, Global Rally Cross put together their own driving event featuring some big named pro’s such as Ken Block, Tanner Foust, Brian Deegan and more which was free to anyone who had a SEMA Badge. Our friend Andrew Link went and captured some of the madness. For more information on GRC check out their site here.
The Hi-Tec Oils Figure-8 Drift Series finals at Sydney Motorsport Park has been run and won. Enjoy these chilled out off-the-cuff shots of some of the action.
