I had the opportunity to shoot this show for LiveWire Media. I had an absolute BLAST at this show! So many kickass cars and trucks added with the car and truck enthusiasts!
The nice weather is quickly coming to an end here in Virginia, so this Cars & Coffee meet in Virginia Beach was extremly full with nice rides, people and families! There were quite a few exotic rides out that I have never seen rolling around, but I am sure with their price tags they aren’t a daily driven ride.
I had read about this event via http://www.SumoSpeed.com and decided after getting off work i would check it out. Noticing the weather was seriously overcast and about 35 degrees I highly doubted anyone would actually be there. I had fell behind in time getting my cameras together and getting to the meeting spot. I was extremely shocked and surprised to see a huge parking lot filled with every spectrum of classic muscle to very high end exotics. Due to being so late to this meet I was able to get a few good shots of attendants rides but missed quite a few that rolled out in the midst of my drooling over the massive amount of eye candy.
A cool FR-S Group shot
Suby’s were plentiful and appreciated!!
I have been to a lot of venues across the country and have seen a good amount of Nissan Skyline R34’s. But this is the very first time locally I have seen this Bayside Blue R34 RHD. Very cool to see one locally and up close not owned by a extremely rich person or company. So needless to say i geeked out on this ride the most.
We had another GREAT opportunity to attend another DUB Magazine car show and concert courtesy of Myles Kovacs and his team from DUB. As usual this was another GREAT show with over 300 pictures in my camera, 6+ hours spent walking around shooting, and quite a few cool cars I was able to snap pictures of. Thankfully the weather wasn’t as bad as it had been on the east coast the last few weeks with the humidity and heat.
There were so many nice rides with quality paint work but this ride had my full attention
This I think was probably the BEST top to bottom front to back full out chop and cut custom
The OC cops busting people cruising…
This 300 seems to make alot of the east coast shows
A genesis I believe
There seemed to be quite a few JDM VIP rides showing here
MY LOVE Nissan GT-R R35
The EXOTICS were also represented very well!
The big trucks were represented as well
Gisselle and Alma got to meet DEVO from FRIDAY
And ending the trip Myles took a few minutes out from his busy day to chop it up with me and showcase his new DUB GARAGE toy line,some of which he graciously hooked me up with!!SO AWESOME!!!
I HAVE TONS more pictures on my flickr, so feel free to browse it and check out more coverage from the show
While I was out of town for my fathers funeral a good friend of mine ordered the newest Hot Wheels Red Line Club items for sale for me. I recently got them in the mail and got them photo’d. The Convoy Custom, Summer Bash Deco Delivery, Mexico Deco Delivery and the Japan Convention Bone Shaker. I also purchased some items once I got back for items that were still available when I arrived home.Pretty cool releases from the RLC shop.
I found some newer Hot Wheels Speed Machine vehicles. I am patiently awaiting the stocking of the Nissan GT-R vehicle in this series. But for now everything I have found has made the wait easier.
599 GTB Fioriano
Lamborghini Gallardo POLIZIA Version
Ferrari 575 GTC
Porsche Carrera GT
’07 Ford Shelby GT500
There have been quite a few different models that I have come across that really aren’t main stream or not usually a brand I buy a huge amount of. This post pretty much sums up those purchases of mine. This branches out from Boley, Matchbox, Johnny Lightning, 1:87 Hot Wheels, and Tom Daniels models.
