The last installment to my Driven coverage. Like every year – it’s been tiring, it’s been long, and it’s been fun. Even though it was an early start for the show this year, everyone came out with their game faces on and really helped put on a great show.
Thank you to all of you that have been sharing my posts, for sending me pictures (that I’ll post shortly!) and most of all, for enjoying them and tagging me in all your stuff. Most importantly, thank you to everyone for bringing your A-game to the show and making this even more enjoyable than the year before.
This post finishes up the rest of the full car shots that I was able to get and some detail shots I got while running around with my 50mm… Enjoy!
The engine bay shot of the STRD Civic… Monster.
Another shot of Giuseppe’s incredible R32. Seeing his car in pictures is one thing, but the presence that his car has in person is something else. It’s the only R32 that can get me moist – no homo, Giuseppe.
A really clean IS in the Legit Society booth.
Another clean widebody Genesis in the Legit Society booth. Everyone’s got bolt on fender flares and I’m over here like “why would I want to cover up those sexy curves?”.
R33 Skyline from Legit Society. Not the most popular Skyline chassis around, but it can look good if executed right.
I liked this Varis Evo. I feel like it needed a GT wing to balance out the front… But you know me…
Kelvin’s 240SX on white TE37’s. My fave.
Brandon’s RSX-S on white TE37’s sitting right beside Kelvin’s. Twinsies… Brandon’s RSX-S is exactly how I wanted to build a RSX back in the day. Black with white TE37’s.
Another shot of Dicken’s Evo X. Great colour combo.
Romel’s Celica. God this thing is so clean… Every time I see it, it’s under a car cover tucked away in the corner of the garage with body panels and stuff all over it. Then once a year, it comes out looking like mother fuckin’ Beyonce and shits on the show. Peep his new TRD aero jacket addition up front. JDMMMMM
Benny’s F20 swapped AE86. Looks exactly the same from the day I shot it centuries ago… I wouldn’t have changed a thing anyway. Perfection.
Ricky’s GTI slammed on SSR’s in Spectrum Silver. It’s a shame that they can’t shine like they should indoors. The colour is still one of the best.
PS: did you know – days later, Ricky found hundreds (if not thousands) of baby spiders in his wheel well? Fucking NASTYYYY. It’s for sale now (I’m making the executive decision for him).
Some shots with my 50mm… Trying to be artsy I guess.
Can’t forget about Rich who dropped beats all day long. He even took my request to play Clarity. You must always play Clarity at a car show.
ZE40’s… Face 4… Yum.
More ZE40’s on Jimmy’s M3
JC and Barb manning the table. Remember – all proceeds (100%!) go to Red Cross!
Rich AKA Candy Boy.
Josh’s slammed A4 wagon. I absolutely love Josh’s car.
Meisters are perfect for this set up.
Arif’s colour matched fender cut outs.
Eric’s S15 static on Work T7R’s
Dat fitment doe. #stancenation
Yes, you saw above…
Awesome detail all around in this AE86
Rocket Bunny. I absolutely love the 350Z and RX7 kitted with RB.
Whoa. I literally just surprised myself as I scrolled through and saw this pic. I don’t even remember taking this – I didn’t really take as many shots as I should have of my own car… I love it because this is as black and as shiny as it’ll ever be.
Can’t forget about JC’s table set up. Not sure if you guys were able to go around and see it, but this was my favourite table set up from JC so far…
Sapporo beer and Pocky…
With some Sushi to go with it. Perfect!
What Rota’s? NO ROTA’S.
Nostalgic Hero slap on Benny’s AE86
Rear shot of the Honda Beat. Peep that titanium exhaust.
Alex’s engine bay. Impeccable attention to detail – if you didn’t know, you could easily walk right by all the beauty that is contained in here…
If you looked closely, you could also see all the Mugen bolts holding everything together. Hell, there are Mugen bolts where you can’t even see them.
Another shot of that wet wet.
Another shot of JC and Barb.
This one is for Errol. A shot of Dannie Riel with my creeper lens…
Barb made me grab my perv lens btw so that we could go and get some pics of the bikini competition. We ended up getting there too late and I was all the way at the back so I didn’t get much. But here were the top 3. Sorry guys, no body shots…
Back to the RB 350Z. Beautiful…
And a rear quarter shot of the RB RX7
And one from the front. It was a tight space to get a good shot but it is also worth noting the awesome paint job from Nick Prah once again here…
One more of my whip.
And the last few pics on my camera were at the request of Arif. He specifically asked that “lifewithjson guy with no A” to come take some extra shots of his car… The sun was shining through perfectly so why not?
A better shot of his new J’s hood.
We are finished!! I think I have just a few more things to post from Driven that isn’t as pic heavy, but those will go up shortly. Thanks for tuning in!
