Sorry for so many parts but I couldn’t just cram everything into one blog shot. So many nice rides came out and did their thing, had to capture them all and put their pictures on display. This will be the final part to my NUROTAG Coverage.

NUROTAG SHOW VIRGINIA BEACH SEPT. 21, 2013 PART 1

This show was highly anticipated for me as I was one of a few local photographers selected to cover the event. The day started early…and was fueled by adrenaline for this experience! A LOT of very nice rides came out to show off their hard work and time and even with a few bumps throughout the day this event was very well received.

Once again the GREAT family from Street Dreamz extended an invite for me to break out the cameras and shoot some of the kick ass rides that parking lot pimped their car show in Norfolk, VA. Nothing but great things from this show. There was a great turn out and a nice warm and sunny day. One little guy I missed in this Show was the young gent from Altered Suspension with the Angry Birds Lowrider Bike. He had gotten sick and wanted to roll through but I know when you’re sick that just won’t work out well.. get well young sir!

Disney Store 1:18 Scale LIMITED Lightning McQueen & Mia and Tia DISPLAY set

The Disney Store had an exclusive Lightning Mcqueen and Mia & Tia Displayable boxset. This high dollar collectible was not a VERY SOUGHT AFTER SET DUE TO THE HIGH PRICE POINT, SCALE, AND CHARACTERS. I picked one up since I DO like the 1:18 scale models and the preview piece looked really good to me so I slapped my preorder in for it. The Base is covered with a very heavy duty acrylic top. Lightning McQueen sits on a spinning base and is shined on by two spot lights in the front of the spinning McQueen. The paint for me is spot on and flawless. However i have heard several other had saw a good amount with bad paint, broken parts, and damaged cases.

Los Angeles Graffiti Scene

During my stay on the west coast my friend and I happened across a downtown LA legal graffiti wall. The most recent pieces were done by RISK and MR. CARTOON. I had seen in progress pictures of Toons piece and wanted to check it out while I was there. So this stop that was totally unplanned at the moment due to a GPS issue was quite rewarding. My friend and I spent a good hour in the art district shooting many kick ass graffiti walls. It was truly amazing to see what these artists can do with a can of spray paint, artistic vision, and a large canvas to express their vision.

SDCC Disney CARS Rescue Squad Mater,Mia and Tia 3 pack Diorama

I received my SDCC Disney CARS Rescue Squad Mater ,Mia n Tia diorama set a few days ago after a timely wait for them (damn postal system is shitty!) So after work I got them photo’d and put away in a safe place. I totally dig the way the set lights up, but in all honestly I don’t think the set really merits a $30 price tag. But oh well they go that money from me anyway.

Motorcycle/VW Beetle Custom Trike

During our 4th of July fireworks waiting, we sat near a mini car show. I saw a custom VW trike roll across the street as I followed it and snapped a few flicks. I saw it come out unto the main street and turn into the parking lot where the car show was. I didn’t see where exactly it went but 15 minutes later the gent parked it within eye shot and I excused myself from the misses and spent a few minutes chatting with the owner and of course snapping up close pictures.

Mr. Ian Hoggard, not only has this great creation but also a white version with a longer front end and also is working on a canary yellow version in Ahoskie , North Carolina (where I get my ink work done ironically). Thanks to Mr. Hoggard for chit chatting with me and allowing me to take a few snaps.

The paint work and custom molding is beautiful. The love and craftsmanship on this custom is WONDERFUL!
