Last post for Driven 2013. See the side bar on the right to see all the other posts if you just tuned in. Just finishing the last of my shots with the wide angle and I walked around quickly to take shots with the 50mm. I said it before the show and I’m hitting myself because I’m saying it now – I should’ve taken more shots. X_X
It’s just such a long ass day of loud music and taking pics that by the end of it all, I don’t feel like even picking up my camera anymore for a few days. Oh well, I got some good captures. Let’s go ahead and end Driven 2013 officially.
Some ratchet stuff going on over by the ZR auto booth. All the dudes on the right snapping some pics… lol I wanted to get a full pic of them, but that would be too obvious. I actually probably look just like those guys.
I didn’t get as many pictures from the Autodream booth as I had hoped. For some reason all their cars were facing inwards and then groups of people were all on the inside so it was awkward to take pics. I did manage to get this clean 240 – unfortunately from the back – but still clean.
Chrome wrapped Lambo. Not feeling it… but better than most wraps at the show.
The new Maserati MP12 was unveiled at the show. Pretty crazy…
Clean 240 from Autodream on some aggressive Meisters.
Another Evo X on RPF1’s and a Voltex wing.
The mean girls. JC, Punit and I. God, I can’t get over how good they looked beside each other all clean. Great combo.
She did a great job posing btw. Her presence was definitely different than all the other models there during the show, it was great shooting the few shots I did with her.
Ass shots with Rich’s 24-70L. I love car shows because my car will never be that clean all year round again.
Punit’s GS. Killed the fitment. Not too much poke, not too much camber.
A quick shot of my trunk set up. I threw in my LV belt for extra brownie points for the show LOL. Steve and Barb are making their way to Hong Kong – so I asked them to pick up a pair of LV belts for me there to strap the tank down permanently. Right now, it’s held down with cheap fabric belts I got at H&M lol.
Shot of the rear. While it does go low, I know it can go even lower. I gotta play with it sometime this summer but for now I’m quite happy with how it all fits.
Derrek’s Louis Vuitton shift boot. It’s actually a real Louis Vuitton bag that was cut up to make it. He said his mom’s bag was getting old and started to rip, so he sat there with a stitch ripper and took out all the original stitches and stitched it back together into a shift boot. I told him he should’ve brought the cut up bag for proof that it was real since it’s an older pattern. Love it.
Tommy’s wheel and brake set up. BBS FI’s and Brembo BBK
Zeeshan’s engine and valve cover.
Another shot of Regina George.
Nikki’s Air Runner trunk set up.
The hat that Naomi got for JC. Mean Girls – “You can’t sit with us” hahahahaha fitting.
In the Scion booth, they had a driving simulator set up. Looked cool.
Awesome low rider truck on Accuair. The finish was awesome.
An Integra from BC. Super clean.
Unfortunately, the shot I got of the red Civic was blurry so I’m pretty disappointed about that, but here’s a dual shot.
Better shot of the black Integra. Love everything about this car from the wheel choice to the fitment.
Reggie’s interior looking great.
Another type R with a beautifully finished TE37. Love the colour.
Reggie’s Type R. This is another amazing car that you have to see in person to appreciate. I wish I got more shots of it. The decals and the placement all works so well. There isn’t a single thing about his car that I didn’t like.
A full shot of the yellow Type R.
Ending part V with Melyssa Grace and Regina George.
Thanks for sticking around! Apologies to those that I missed shots of. I’m looking forward to next year and hoping that everyone comes out even better than this year. I know I’m already looking for new parts to help complete the big booty sedan.
Is it wishful thinking that I hope there are no more just-wrapped cars entered into the show next year? Or is there any bets on a new trend? I’m hoping that the VIP scene grows from now until then. I just hope it doesn’t grow into something where everybody thinks they can buy an big body sedan and then slap some Rota’s or Varrstoen’s on them and think they have a VIP build. We’ll see I guess…
Until next time!
