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.
I had the opportunity to come out and support this event for Jonathan Derrick, a local gentleman battling cancer. His car club threw this event in support of him and his family to help in the cost of medical bills and finances so that he may kick this cancers ass! I got off work at 7am and got things ready to cover this event. Sadsly I could only stay a short while due to haing to be back at work later on. But the turn out while I was there was wonderful! A LOT of love and support for this gentleman and his family!
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.
