Nissan Jam 2017

I wasn’t quite expecting to hit Nissan Jam this year because of a packed schedule during the weekend, but I had to check it out. Plus it was “sort of” on the way home from service.

Nissan Jam, similar to TORC has sections dedicated to its own model. The event was located in La Palma Park, very close to the old Wheel Warehouse. 2017 marked the 5th year for Nissan Jam, from Hako’s to Juke, the event had a Datsun and Nissan for everyone. Come cruise with us as we stroll through the event.

WekFest LA 2012 – Long Beach – Vortech Superchargers – Tjin Edition

WekFest made its way back to Long Beach this year for the second time. But for geographical popularity, they chose to call it WekFest LA, which confuses some locals. In any case, we had the chance to visit Hawaii for WekFest and earlier in the year we went to WekFest up in San Francisco, therefore when it came time for the LA event we were destined to be there. Long Beach is our backyard; literally, some of the crew, including myself resides in Long Beach and have for many years.

For WekFest LA we teamed up with our site partners Vortech Superchargers and our friends at Tjin Edition. We were lucky enough to occupy some space and helped man their booth. Several AirPower group cars surrounded the area.

Gene Tjin’s Lysholm powered Camaro led the pack,

Followed by Sean’s teal wrapped 350Z sporting the Vortech V-3 SCi Supercharger.

And finished off with Sal’s “Last Ride”, also fronting the Vortech V-3 Si Supercharger.

Vortech also brought their display of forced induction add-ons

Tjin Edition was on hand with their Wraptivo Civic Si sitting on dual color Rotiforms.

And friends Ian and Nikki joined with their E30 on hot pink BBS’s.

The WekFest show was short of disappointing. Plenty of nicely built Honda’s were on hand such as Big Mike’s Prelude and this Red NSX with gold plated Mugen MF10s, both were part of ItsJDMYo’s harem of cars.

One of my favorite H-cars was this Jasper Green DA. It brought back memories of when I first started the compact car scene when I had my EF sedan, in fact, I also owned a Jasper Green LS. This Acura Integra (DA) sat pretty, with color-matched moldings and mirrors (although aftermarket), an option that didn’t come factory with this trim (LS, if I am not mistaken, I didn’t spend much time on it). That simple modification was fitting for that era. A newer year bumper was added as well.  It was sitting on SSR EX-C NEOs with color-matched accents. It was different to see it not triple-chromed like how I use to see them.

Moving forward, some exotics filled the Queen Mary Event Park, as euros, and various Japanese origin cars also occupied the grass.

Making our way back, we spotted this white Camaro with a Lysholm Supercharger as well as this Miata on a very deep set of SSR EX-C Fins.

An S14 with a cool license plate.

Back by the ItsJDMYo’s model lounge we saw Chaba signing posters and

just on the backside we ran into Leon Casino with his Spoon CR-X

At home base, we got some action with Debbie Sath floating graciously in front of Sal’s “Last Ride”

While a paparazzi were flossing Gene’s ride.

Freddy of AutoFashion was busy jabbin’ on the cell.

WekFest ended on a great note,

MV Designz’ Kogi BBQ Scion xD won 1st place Scion.

 

Air Runner had a fleet of vehicles including Jon Sibal’s Challenger

and Fuscions iQ and Prius.

At the end of the day, the weather was phenomenal, and we are anticipating WekSOS’s next event. I want to thanks Vortech Superchargers, Tjin Edition, and WekSOS for the hospitality. Thanks to Jimmy Dang for assisting in some of the shots.

Fontana Nissan’s – “Cuatro Meeto”

Kicking off DaYUUM’s string of automotive events this spring, our friends from Fontana Nissan invited us to attend “Cuatro Meeto” – A Nissan enthusiast extravaganza.  This is the fourth Nissan exclusive car meet put together by Nissan Race Shop Motorsports Director, Mr. Scott VanderHeide and

the ever-appealing time attack driver, Ms. Kerryann De La Cruz.  We would definitely not refuse the invite and expect any less than exciting from this dynamic duo. The Nissan race vehicles that they’ve built already show the work that they can put forth.  And if you don’t already know the established friendship all started with an exclusive Q&A feature interview with Ms. De La Cruz as well as Fontana Nissan’s very own FD drift driver, Mauricio Ornelas Jr.  So be sure to be on the lookout for more exclusives to come your way in the very near future…

Scoping out the meeting grounds of “Cuatro Meeto”, a squadron of Fontana Nissan race prepped vehicles welcomed every vendor and invitee at the event.

A variety of Zs were represented at the meet to support Fontana Nissan in addition to showing various modifications and styles people do to their rides.

 

Showing their brawn, a crew of Xterras and Frontiers arrived in full force.

A number of vendors were also in attendance at the meet – to name a few MotoIQ.com, Berk, Tanabe/SSR, Savinni, Susan Komen group and of course DaYUUM to name a few.

One of my personal favorites at the event was this pristine white S13 on SSR SP1 that totally broke a few necks.

The event wasn’t short of ol ‘skul too in attendance – with a mix of some VIP as well.

A crew of R35s joining in… I would say that was a million dollar line up.

And there’s our very own Van_DaYUUM_Paul, putting his photo skills to work for Instagram – who needs a DSLR when you’ve got your iPhone…

The event will not be complete without some eye-candy to feast our eyes on…

There’s the charming and DaYUUM’s feature model – Ms. Marissa Hiroko

Spunky Ms. Brittani was in attendance to support the event.

New mesmerizing favorites, Ms. Ashley Clark and Ms. Amanda Kerr.

And of course, we wouldn’t forget the sweet Claudia Lopez.

We complete and end the day with a good tan from the blazing heat at Fontana.  I am sure that we will definitely be back to support Fontana Nissan next year and their upcoming events.   As we continue the partnership, you can expect some good racing events, builds and exclusive features with the help from Nissan Race Shop head honcho, Mr. Scott VanderHeide.  We are very thrilled and looking forward to this…

Check out the event video coverage by PVR Motorsports’ – Mikey Dang.

Peace and until the next one…  -jayson
