I had the opportunity to shoot again for LiveWire Media for their 2nd Hot Rod Custom Car show. This one had a side event in a chili cook off which was pretty cool to experience.
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!
THE NICO’S TACO CREW THREW DOWN FOR THE SHOW AND BLEW OUT SOME BOMB TACOS!!
Jada has done a good job jumping into the domestic racing market starting with the fat slicks on diecast now progressing into the more professional race look. Their product is nice for their price point, however there is one draw back, the market they are trying to reach. The NHRA/Funny car sport has been OVER SATURATED with diecast models from various motor sports companies. I would thing they would pop into the really popular IDRC(import drag racing Circuit) but they probably haven’t and wouldn’t think about it. I have yet to see any of those cars made into a diecast, but am sure they would be a hit at all the Battle of the Imports and drags of that nature.
But for now I was happy to grab this domestic ride to compensate for nothing really shwoing up around here.
