PEP BOYS SPEED SHOP CAR SHOW NORFOLK, VA. 7.28.2013 PART 1

Pep Boys threw a GREAT free car show with free entry, complimentary water and chips. There was a terrific turnout that filled out the parking lot. There was great representation from Old School rides, hot roads, new muscle, dragsters, imports,low riders and trucks. Even though the day was extremely HUMID all attendants seemed to have had a great time and battled through the heat. Enjoy the coverage and click on the pictures to visit my Flickr page to see more of the rides at the show!

Virginia CARS N COFFEE JUNE 1, 2013

I had a short time frame to visit the Local CARS n COFFEE meet in Virginia Beach before heading to Water Country with the family. I was able to capture a few of the cool rides that came out (I am sure I missed a TON after my super early departure) But it was cool seeing a few rides that I hadn’t seen before at the meet. Hopefully next month I can stay for the majority of the meet.

NORFOLK, VA. TOP GUN X UNO’S X CHKD CHARITY CAR SHOW 5.26.13

The day was awesome as the weather worked out to be just right. Attendance was amazing, as quite a large number came out for this charity car show for CHKD. I even was coerced into pulling the primer’d bucket into the show. I dunno why most of my pictures were less crisp as usual. I was playing with camera manual settings so I will lay the blame there. My photos don’t do justice to the time and effort people have put into their rides.

While I was in Nebraska assisting my mom with her move and renovation of her new house. We hit a home improvement store that had a toy section for the holidays. And of course I had to hit it and check out the offerings. Well needless to say I came away with some goodies!

BARRACUDA X MIKE GIANT X REBEL 8 MELROSE

mike giant show barracuda (37)

While visiting my good friends :The Buenos They were nice enough to let me know about the Mike Giant Rebel 8 signing in Melrose at Barracuda. At this signing Mike Giant was doing a LIVE installation piece during the signing. I got there just as he was started and was in TOTAL awe of the artists profound skill to bust such a HUGE installation with just a few POSCA markers. He also did a few other pieces with aerosol cans.

A very good crowd came out to support Barracuda and Mike Giant

While I was there watching Mike Giant get busy. Jae Bueno and his Wife Steph were floating around snapping pictures covering the show for Jae’s blog ***JaeBueno.com*** I spied a gentleman I have been following pretty close through his blog and his clothing line for awhile ***ESTEVAN ORIOL**** And Jae knows him pretty well so I played the fanboy and asked Jae and Steph to snap a pic of me with him. He was MAD cool to chit chat with and no super star bullshit from him. A real dude!

And after the event was done I was wandering around to see if I could somehow come up on a few Rebel 8 stickers with no luck. As I turn around I see a familiar face and another behind that one. Low and behold it is Paul Wall ****Solo Rapper**Expensive Taste*** And Skin Head Rob***The Transplants**Expensive taste**. Very cool and shocking to see these gents milling around. Once again fanboy took over so i got a few snaps with Jae Bueno behind the camera.

Some New Disney CARS pickups for February.

February had been a ok month for finding some of the newer Disney CARS in my area. We are still really behind the rest of the US with whats been showing up, but in time we should catch up. I had come across a new El Materdor and Chuy the bulldozer playset. Albeit all plastic and really not my thing. I grabbed one up to check it out.

I was also able to find a children’s puzzle of El Materdor and Chuy the Bulldozer Lenticular puzzle. My daughter and I worked the very easy 24 piece puzzle and framed it up. Its a nice addition to our massive CARS framed puzzles.

Disney CARS NEW MEGASIZE Vehicle sighting

The Mega Sized line is creeping slowly back into stores. Finding something new amongst the many Semi Cabs is a very hard task at most my local stores. Since my last Clayton Kensington pick up months ago I hadn’t found anything new. I came across the TJ Hummer megasized and Frank the Combine in the night Skyline packaging. a nice sight but I definitely would like to see Kensington again.
