Extreme AutoFest EAF 2012 – San Diego Qualcomm Stadium

Extreme AutoFest (EAF) has been throwing events for more than 10-years and has always been an event rather than a car show. Unlike, other shows that are specifically catered to low riders or fitment based vehicles, EAF has combined the best of both worlds. In short, if you hardly attend car events, EAF is the one to attend.

The crew at EAF didn’t fall short this year in San Diego as they occupied Qualcomm Stadium and packed the venue with drifting, autocross, low riders, imports, girls, live entertainment and girls.. girls.. oh, girls.

In the past, we’ve had members travel to Hawaii and NorCal for events, but this trip was the furthest we have traveled as a crew. Armed with water, munchies, and our display. Jae, Paul, Mikey, Scott, Jayson, Marissa, Josh, and myself headed to San Diego the afternoon before the event to set up and check into our cozy Best Western.

Thanks to our trusty driver (van_dayuum_paul) and our un-trusty navigation system, we had to use 2 systems. We spent most of Saturday afternoon trying to figure out SD’s freeway system near the stadium and got lost on several several occasions. Did I mention several, several? Some blame me for not providing the proper directions because of my relationship with Instagram and Facebook, but someone had to update our whereabouts and coordinate our group! 😛 After being lost 4000x’s, we finally met up with Ashley and Ronnie back at home base and checked into our rooms.

Through it all, we spent time quality together and ended up at Slater’s 50/50 where we met up with Justin, Michelle, and Eliza. We had some bomb eats with our DaYUUM family. (excuse the blur as our waitress wasn’t steady with her hands, obviously)

We ended Saturday night with a trip to the liquor store and shared ghost stories, played a little truth or dare, and dared Jae (dayuumjae) to streak Interstate 805, ok, we really didn’t tell ghost stories, but what if? Hmm…

On Sunday, Amanda and Nilo joined us and the weather was content. We had a nice breeze but the black top, well… it still tends to heat up. Nevertheless the event was as expected. We met a lot of our site supporters, and our own Marissa Hiroko took 3rd place in her first ever bikini contest. She definitely is an industry’s favorite.

We want to thank the stunning and lovely Ashley Clark and Amanda Kerr for joining us (sorry for the picture quality, somehow we failed on that department for taking pictures of our own family except through our phones :(( ) and we thank the crew at Extreme AutoFest for taking great care of us!

It’s time to pass the torch to Jae and Scott for the photos.

Much Love – DaYUUMDen

Here’s some of our coverage of the girls of EAF San Diego. Starting off with our very own, Miss Marissa Hiroko who also won 3rd place at the bikini contest as mentioned earlier by Denny (DayuumDen).

 

Saw miss Raquel Estrella modeling with this Tekken themed Lamborghini under Savini booth.

 

Here we spotted miss Lauren La Carriere while walking around to check up some booths.

EAF set up an ” Island paradise” themed attire for the model lounge. Spotted miss Leianna Kai first while looking around the lounge. Did you guys also know that she could sing? Well now you know.

 

Who would not recognize the sexy curves of miss Ela Pasion with her bright yellow bikini top.

 

Right next to her was miss Alexis Kobayashi.

 

We also saw miss Sheryll Lynn all dressed up and ready to pose for us.

What surprised me the most walking around the lounge was when I saw miss Raichelle Viado. She was creating a crowd right when I saw her. I’ll let the pictures explain it all.

 

Then we passed by miss Sandra Wong.

 

Walked the other side of the lounge and I saw miss Veronica Vhynes. To be honest, this was the first time I met her.

Then right next to her was miss Mimi Sarmiento. A good follower of us on our FB page. Didn’t recognize her at first until she introduced herself. It was nice to finally meet you miss Mimi.

Also, right next to her was miss Christine Zegers.

 

Here we have miss Dianna Lushus and miss Kat Gutierrez.

Started to walk around again cause the lounge is getting packed and saw miss Siray Kong being mobbed by photographers.

 

Then we saw miss Marie Alvarez working with kapu motor trends booth.

 

Our friends from Geisha with miss Wendy Lopez, Claudia Lopez, Gina sky, and Jenn the backseat love.

 

Here’s more of miss Claudia Lopez.

 

I decided to walk back to the lounge to see who else is there and look who I ran into. Miss April Garcia and miss Amy Ames.

 

The gorgeous miss Tanya Love. Looking good as always.

 

Here we have the combo of our good friends miss Kristin Barcelona and miss Chean Labuen.

More of miss Kristin Barcelona

More of miss Chean Labuen.

Also in attendance at the lounge was the lovely Miss Jeri Lee and alongside with her was miss Darling Darla.

Miss Alexia Cortez was also in attendance.

Miss Kay Bae striking a pose for us.

 

Got a chance to grab miss Lena Love to pose in front of our booth with Nilo (DaYUUMNilo13)’s NSX.

That completes our coverage of Extreme Auto Fest San Diego. Until next time. Peace.

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.

Here is a video recap from PhotoMD

Motion Auto Show 2012 – Long Beach – Part 1

Motion Auto Show 2012 was held at the Long Beach Convention Center, is an event to look forward to every year. Another great event that always gets packed no matter what. From vendors, to show cars, to models, and of course the spectators, it seems to be bigger than last year’s turn out. They even had the dance competition and the bikini contest which had more competitors and more people attending this year. Motion also accomidated a space for us to show and sell our latest shirts and stickers and to house our three lovely DaYUUM Angels, Ashley, Marissa, and Amanda, and of course to meet our fans as well. We want to thank Motion for giving us the opportunity and for having us be a part of one of the greatest shows here in Cali. We can’t wait for the next one. With that being said, here’s the first part of the show where we cover most of the car show portion. We will have the models and the bikini contest later on for part 2 so stay tuned.

WEKFEST IV San Francisco 2012

It’s been ten years since the last time I was in Nor Cal.  I lived in San Jose for five months so when I heard about WEKFEST, I was contemplating at first but decided to go since it’s been a decade since the last time I was there. WEKFEST is one of the elite shows in California. There’s always quality when it comes to cars and a massive amount of people. I have yet to experience it since this is my first time attending this event, so with that being said, I will let the photos explain what the Bay Area scene is all about.

 

Here is one of our friend’s Civic from Tjin Edition. This Civic SI sits on Rotiform wheels. He drove all the way from So Cal to represent for WekFest. We pretty much sat inside the car when we got tired, just to sit because we didn’t have a booth. Thanks Gene for letting us in!

 

A clean M3 on nice white Volks

 

A nice Porsche Panamera

 

This nice NSX looks familiar

 

One of the few exotics that was at the show

 

A clean Lexus IS-F

 

This Evo made me stare at it for a good minute.

 

Mmmm Silvia.. I believe this is our friend Leon Casino’s ride. Nicely done!

 

A nice Integra with a clean engine bay

 

 

This picture is so funny. Didn’t realize it till I started editing. Do you guys know what I’m talking about?

 

WekFest was not just about imports but old school domestics as well.

 

Clean FD

 

 

Some wagon love

 

Another one of our friends from So Cal “Rare JDM’s” own 350z representing for WekFest

 

Also from “Rare JDM” “Team Vitz” Peter Tadros ride. Nice to see some friends reppin all the way from So Cal.

 

Another Integra with a clean engine bay

 

It’s amazing to see a Supra not only with a unique body kit, but also a highway patrol resemblance. Wild would be another word for it. I wouldn’t even take my chance running off of this machine if it pulled me over cause there is no chance at all.

 

Here’s another view from the back

 

Some slammed euros

 

You can’t call it a show if there were no Skyline GTR representing

 

Another friend of ours from So Cal, Rodney Esteban’s slammed Prius under the Air Runner booth. Definitely a neck breaker.

 

This thing is bagged!

 

 

 

 

This Honda Insight is nice. Done right.

 

This Miata got my attention. With a custom front end conversion, it definitely is a show stopper.

 

Lotus flower bomb

 

 

VIP status

 

Another clean engine bay

 

Another friend from So Cal, Big Mike’s famous ‘lude

 

Another neat engine bay

 

Keith “Keychain” from “it’s JDM yo” and “Royal Origin” with his accord who also drove all the way from So Cal

 

 

An old school mini “very nice”

 

It’s rare to see a van representing in a show here in California that’s fixed up as JDM style. Nicely done.

 

Another show stopper that fascinated me. The wrap on this Audi TT was nicely done. Its so clean I even look for little parts that they might have missed but i didn’t find any. Done right.

 

Here’s a view from the back

 

A hatch with another clean engine bay

 

And another one

 

Candy

 

 

Clean Evo

 

Another nice Lotus

 

 

Some S2k love

 

 

 

 

Some luxury and exotics. I heard this guy drove all the way from So Cal’s Cars and Coffee Saturday morning and arrived at San Francisco late in the afternoon to catch up for WekFest. Pretty crazy and I wonder how many gas stops did he made for the trip.

 

By the way, this is how packed it was at the show. there’s no room for taking pictures of most of the cars because people are around it so it was really hard to take them. We were lucky enough that we arrived a little bit early before it was open for public so we could at least snap some good shots. To be honest, there were more quality cars that I didn’t get a chance to cover because of the massive amount of people but i tried my best to cover the most that I can.

 Here is a dope video from our friend’s at PVR Motorsports!

 

Oh and before I forget, it wouldn’t be a DaYUUM coverage without the ladies so here’s what most of you have been waiting for.

 

Miss Trinity Dang (no affiliation with Mikey Dang from PVR.). A hottie from the Bay Area.

 

Michelle Yee, also from So Cal signing autographs and posing for her fans at the Iclique lounge

 

 

Here’s Miss Mars Maylani posing at the iClique lounge

Here’s a model that made me drop my jaw. Here’s Miss Trisha Lynn posing with Vex Motorsports

I can just look at her all day

 

Here’s the gorgeous Miss Genevieve Chanelle. One of the sweetest models you would ever meet. I hope we can do a feature of her one day. If she moves to So Cal, we’ll be the first in line.

She makes me say “oh my god”

Definition of beautiful

 

Here’s miss Xena Kai sporting a sticker with our friends from “It’s JDM yo”

 

Another famous model Miss Justene Jaro showing us her new bling G-shocks

 

The lovely Miss Corissa Furr

She’s keeping it classy

 

One of our friends representing Low’N Slow crew, who’s also from So Cal, Miss Kristin Nicole Barcelona

 

All in all, it was a great and huge turnout. Some people would complain about the massive amount of people and some says it should be in a bigger venue but who would complain about attending one of the famous events in the West? You’ll always expect it to be big no matter what. I would do it again next time but with more preparation since now I know what to expect. Before I end this coverage, I would like to give thanks first to the people behind WekFest, for giving us a chance to cover their awesome event. You guys do it big! Thanks for making it possible. Next I would like to say thank you to the Nor Cal CarsxHype crew for welcoming us and the hospitality that they have given from their WekFest pre-meet the night before, it was nice chillin with you guys. Till next time. And to our partners PVR Motorsports, this trip wouldn’t be possible without the collaboration. And last, I’m giving a shout out to all the friends that we met at the show. It was nice to see all of you, knowing that most of you are from So Cal and made the trip up north. Until next time.

I will leave you guys with a photo that would remind me of WekFest, crazy = but fun
