Ladies of SPOCOM Anaheim 2018

Spocom has always had a place in my heart from the quality cars that they attract to the elaborate visual talents that add a certain appeal to Spocom. Each event in SoCal has their niche and talent, entertainment, ladies, and hot cars has always been Spocom’s. People attending the event know what to expect. in 2018, they expand their offerings and are pounding the pavement to different regions of the United States. Spocom keeps it real, they try hard year after year to secure an indoor space and this year is no different. In terms of turf, Anaheim Convention center is theirs.

This year’s ladies lounge was packed, sold out, filled to capacity. Trisha knows how to book them and does the best job in the industry – hands down. I’ll stop rambling and introduce to you some of the ladies of Spocom, by Gilbert C.

Formula D 2016 – Round 1 Streets of Long Beach

Words and Photos by Gilbert

Another year kicks off with the Formula D 2016 season at the Streets of Long Beach. Things were a bit different this year as due to rainy conditions, the qualifiers from the first day were cancelled and instead drivers were given practice time for the day instead. Following that into the second day competition, they went with a seeded order based on 2015 rankings to start the competitions.

Another thing that was different was the car show usually held by Illest and titled Offset Kings has been replaced by a Toyota sponsored auto gallery.

Spocom San Jose – 2015

It was one of those days where California had 2 shows going on a weekend and I had to choose between Auto enthusiast presented by Nitto in Anaheim, and Spocom Show in San Jose. I thought, since we’re having the Tjin Edition x DaYUUM RoadShow down in Anaheim, why not drive up north and have a little road trip to cover Spocom up in the bay. So Friday night, I rode with Mikey (@photo_md) along with some of the R-Rydes crew, Danh (@dvo414), and Alf (@bluewaffleg35) to cruise up north but had to re-route and take freeway 101 since we got an update from Tricia that there was a brush fire going on at Highway 152, the usual way to San Jose from SoCal. We got there around early a.m. safe and sound and met up with the rest of the R-Rydes crew to roll in at the show. It was a pretty chill show, nothing big compare to the Spocom Anaheim that happened a few weeks ago. It’s more of a good vibes, and seeing some of the NorCal friends that I’ve never seen for a while. It was definitely a good time chillin and chatting up with the bay area peeps. With that being said, here’s a few of the cool rides and beautiful women of Spocom San Jose.

Jovi’s Lancer Evo, one of the few cars that gets to show inside Club Auto sports showroom.

Till next time! Thanks for reading!

Formula D 2015 – Round 1 Streets of Long Beach

With Round 2 coming up this weekend in Atlanta, Georgia, I wanted to get my brief coverage of the event up. Taking place the weekend before the Long Beach Grand Prix, the Formula D scene is a great way to get fans amped up for the new season of car events and new vendors, new drivers, new cars, new umbrella girls and just generally a taste of things to come this season.

Fredrick Aasbo for Rockstar Energy drink snagged the win at the first round and the competition did get pretty fierce on the track.

The Ladies of Wekfest San Jose 2014

As every automotive enthusiasts would know, Wekfest has been known as one of the best automotive event across the entire United States. They are known to put all vehicles and vendors through a filtering process to ensure quality is highly represented at all events. With their stop at San Jose, Ca. this past weekend, Aug. 10, you bet this was another hit that made all the Bay Area folks all excited, even us, who are from Southern California. We made the trip and made it a memorable one. We will have the main coverage of the cars coming soon but for now, we made a separate category where we cover all the ladies that participated at this show representing all the vendor booths and/or teams which makes every show more interesting. Here’s a quick recap of the ladies of Wekfest San Jose 2014. wekfest sj 2014-1712 wekfest sj 2014-1714First off is Wekfest’s official spokesmodel, Miss Elissa Alva up front at the main Wekfest x Imperium booth and as usual, causing a line for fans to get posters, autograph, and shirts. wekfest sj 2014-1866 wekfest sj 2014-1869 wekfest sj 2014-1871Along with another Wekfest spokesmodel double header/tandem of Miss Ashley Vee up front which makes it for a ridiculous line to meet both of these hotties. wekfest sj 2014-1717 wekfest sj 2014-1721Nicole Leigh who is originally from the Bay area is posted up at the Canibeat booth. wekfest sj 2014-1726 wekfest sj 2014-1727Here we have the other half of the Vossen girls, Miss Justene Jaro. wekfest sj 2014-1731 wekfest sj 2014-1735Miss Dawn Jaro to complete the team of these awesome sisters at the Vossen wheels booth. wekfest sj 2014-1737 wekfest sj 2014-1739Its JDM Yo/Legacy booth is providing the model lounge for the show and saw our friend, Miss Arley Elizabeth. wekfest sj 2014-1749 wekfest sj 2014-1750Another hottie from the Bay, She goes by the name of Callie love. wekfest sj 2014-1756 wekfest sj 2014-1758Our adorable friend, Miss Regina Francia also at the model lounge. wekfest sj 2014-1766 wekfest sj 2014-1768Posted up at the Sonic MS booth is this SoCal hottie, Miss Amy Fay. wekfest sj 2014-1773 wekfest sj 2014-1774 wekfest sj 2014-1781Also at the Sonic MS booth who I also think is the most beautiful woman from the Bay area, Miss Genevieve Chanelle.

Mash Up! Three – Highlights

MashUP3Mash-UP! Three is our 4th collaboration with the Guppy House chain and each event we try to change it up a little. Mash-Up! Three was a celebration of Guppy House’s 8th location and our 2 year Anniversary as a website. We also felt that a charity was necessary, therefore we contacted the guys at Infinite Auto Design to put us in touch with the We Strong Foundation. We chose We Strong because of what Wayne (@waynestrong) is doing. Wayne’s battles with Leukemia gave him the urge to give back to the people that may have it worse than him. Wayne had friends and family to support him and felt that others could use the same encouragement to stay positive and be strong. We thank everyone that purchased a reserve spot and raffle tickets because it all went to a great cause.

I woke up Saturday morning to an email from Danny Nguyen to let me know highlight photos were ready to be download. We chose a dedicated photographer because with all the running around trying to get things handled, it’s rare that the team has time to capture the event. Danny has a creative eye and awesome with night shots so it was fitting to have him shoot the event. Some of you have already seen his work on JDMZipTies.com.

Events aren’t as easy as some may think, especially organized events. Permits, planning, staffing, organizing, purchasing, blah blah blehh.. All take time and money. I would say, I wished I could have planned logistics more smoothly but the early morning complaints from neighboring business didn’t sit well with me, or was part of my plan since the 3 others we planned went without a hitch and had 110% support from surrounding neighbors and the city. Chino Hills, was a bit, ummm… different – to be politically correct. Therefore, half of our planned area was cut short. I’m not 100% sure where the breakdown was, but a phone call and an email from the complex lawyer wasn’t the communication I was hoping for. I’m still perplexed on how they got my email and cellphone number. I’d rather save that type of surprise for an unclaimed bank account that had billions of dollars in it.

Overall, I felt the turn out was good, good only because I’d rather see all the cars grouped together rather than seeing a sick Evo next to a stock 4Runner, it just kills the buzz, at least for me, but what can you do when you’re dealing with public space and bitchy neighbors. Scion Evolution did a great job helping us with the logistics and keeping it real. It’s amazing how many people will name drop just to get through the ropes. Evening name dropping people that are no longer in our family.

We try to mash things up with different styles of cars and talents. Since we are passionate of street art we brought out one of our favorite graffiti crews, NASA. NASA has been around for at least 2 decades and has then moved on to other aspects of design such as apparel and footwear, so its nice to see them out to support.

MashUpThree_2013-9322Here is Just195 in action. This wall also acts as our photo backdrop.

We like a diversity of cars whether its American, old school, new school, it’s all in the appreciation of the enthusiasts individuality.

MashUpThree_2013-9400The lovely Regina Mei (@reginameii) was also in our model’s lounge and taking pictures with fans.

Our grand openings are nothing without music and talent to go with it. DJ Skitz (@deejayskitz) from Awthentik Vibes was our VJ for the night and simply killed it.

MashUpThree_2013-9446Pictured here is gorgeous Dianna Lushus (@diannalushus) during one of her sets.

MashUpThree_2013-9496Kat Gutierrez (@ig_kat) was quite mesmerizing. She even stopped this young stallion in his tracks! I think he approves.

MashUpThree_2013-9509

MashUpThree_2013-9515Capturing the event was David, the owner of the Guppy House chain, operating his remote control drone.

In between the go-go sets, we had some raffle prizes that were donated by many awesome supporters such as Rehv Clothing, Wheel Warehouse, DC Sports, AirREX, Scosche, Vaping LA, IZZI Gadgets, and Cadence Acoustics. All proceeds from the purchase of raffle tickets went to our charity, We Strong Foundation.

MashUpThree_2013-9609

MashUpThree_2013-9631

MashUpThree_2013-9666

MashUpThree_2013-9707The raffle was handled by Paul Dabao (@Van_DaYUUM_Paul) and Antonio Sureshot (@antoniosureshot) of Motor Mavens (@motormavens), with assistance by the lovely ladies from our models lounge, Regina Mei (@reginameii), Serena Su (@serenasuu), Ashley Clark (@ashhhhcee), and Arley Elizabeth (@arrrrlz).

MashUpThree_2013-9620Gilbert from ITsJDMYo! won some goodies from Scosche.

MashUpThree_2013-9704Winner, winner chicken dinner with a $200 gift certificate for an AirREX Air Suspension

We tried to add a little halloween spirit and held a costume contest. The winner of each category won $100 cash money and $100 gift card to Guppy House. By the time we held the contest it was kind of late, so some of the participants didn’t want to participate anymore or had already dispersed. The contest was split up into 2 groups, scariest/original and seksiest.

MashUpThree_2013-9785

MashUpThree_2013-9778

MashUpThree_2013-9796The scary and original group we had Braelyn and Shawna as zombies, but ultimately Caption Hooker, Ronnie took the $100 prize.

In the seksi portion, we had Lilly Evan (@sexylillyevans) dressed as your fantasy (“whatever you want me to be” as she described), Ashley Clark as a Mermaid, and Kallita Daniel (@kallitadaniel) as Princess Leia from Star Wars.

MashUpThree_2013-9804From this pic I’m curious on what Captain Hooker and Rev Run (@dayuumnilo13) was looking at.

MashUpThree_2013-9815“whatever you want me to be”

MashUpThree_2013-9824Ariel

MashUpThree_2013-9858

MashUpThree_2013-9836the winner ended up being Kallita. It was kind of funny because she wasn’t even going to compete – thinking she wasn’t going to win, until I literally dragged her on stage. Really, I did… And guess what? She took the $100 and the gift certificate!

We took a short break before the final raffle.

MashUpThree_2013-9869Here is Joey from The Chronicles‘s Q posted next to our booth… His Y33 is so clean, fresh, and DaYUUM!

MashUpThree_2013-9972For our final raffle we had Serena and Kallita to help out.

MashUpThree_2013-9902

MashUpThree_2013-9932Virgil was winning everything in sight, include Cadence sub woofers, Scosche headphones, Vaping LA juices and accessories… You name it, he has it.

MashUpThree_2013-9954Here is Kallita receiving a winning ticket.. This girl also won a boat load of stuff.

MashUpThree_2013-9983Before giving out our final raffle, we had Wayne from We Strong Foundation say a few words.

MashUpThree_2013-9996Lastly, the IZZI Orbit, AirREX gift certificate, and Scosche headphones was drawn for this lucky winner.

We had Danny stick around to take some group shots in front of the completed photo backdrop done by Just195 and Rich One of NASA Crew. I don’t like having my picture taken so it’s even more awkward when I initiate them, but I always feel it needs to be done. Especially during good times like these, you want to record events not only in your mind but visually. It helps you remember a timeline of life.

MashUpThree_2013-0056Last but not least, a group picture with David, the owner of Guppy House with our core DaYUUM Family.

These are just highlight photos and we will have more to come. I do want to thank the DaYUUM crew for always putting in 110% and taking time out of their schedule to always support the family. Michelle, Liza, Jae, Scottie, Paul, Justin, and Nilo.

Thank you to the Scion Evolution crew, Shawna (@shawnaenders), Veronica (@veronigguhrizz), Virgil (@importcarsite), Sergio, and Johnny (@mrlosangeles323) for help us with the flow of traffic.

I also want to thank Team Klassified, Phase2, Royal Origin, Iconic Car Club, SoCal Driven, and Gabe and friends for coming out to support in force. There are so many other clubs and individuals that I did not have the opportunity to meet, but thank you guys too!

Thank you to all our sponsors and supporters, Rehv Clothing, Wheel Warehouse, DC Sports, AirREX, Scosche, Vaping LA, IZZI Gadgets, Cadence Acoustics, Tjin Edition, Infinite Auto Design, 86Fest, and Motor Mavens.

Thank you to all the girls of the DaYUUM Hunnies models lounge, Ashley Clark, Serena Su, Marie Alvarez, Arley Elizabeth, Regina Mei, and Lilly Evans! You ladies are fun and awesome to work with. Thank you to Kallita for helping out with the raffles.

Last but not least, David for having us again and congrats again on your 8th store… We can’t wait for Fullerton, Pasadena, WeHO, and many many more! Stay tuned!

We have more pictures coming folks…Until later… @DaYUUMDen
