Kuya Model Expo – Cosplay Edition

Words and Photos by Gilbert

 

This past weekend, southern california was getting into the halloween spirit with a local show hosted by none other than Big Abe himself. Abe and his staff has been an icon in the car show and model industry that it was great that he put together this event to gather some of the hottest models in the scene today. I had the pleasure of doing a quick recap of his event which features girls coming in from washington, the east coast, even as far as Australia.

AutoCon LA 2015

AutoCon has arrived this year again, and there is no shortage of sweet looking cars and plenty of models to go around. In the recent years, Justin Fong has started doing a drive-up stage to showcase some of the impressive cars in the industry today. As well as do some interviews and a close look at some of the finer details that some of these cars have to offer. It has become a staple for his event and it is definitely a crowd pleaser for the audience.

I just want to take a serious note right now, that as an attendee, please respect the cars and do go around touching, reaching into the cabin, or generally just feeling the paint or putting fingerprints on the car. The owners of the car work hard on them and it is a shame to see ignorant people just do whatever they feel like at the shows. Example here:

AutoCon2015-34

I witnessed these 2 kids for a good 10 minutes reaching into this 240z and touching various points of the car and at one point, i think they pressed a panel too hard and left a dent.

Moving onto more pleasant events, yes, there were plenty of models on hand, with the various vendors bringing some of the top models in the industry to AutoCon’s own model lounge situated across from the stage.

Some of the nicest cars came to represent, and a nice trend I noticed was there were a lot of widebody porsches out that day.

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.

Kuya Model Expo: Holiday Edition 2014

Big Abe has been a figure in the import industry for quite a while now and when he puts together a show, he really puts together a show. The Kuya Model Expo/R1 Concepts: Holiday Edition is the 3rd expo that he’s put together inviting many of the lovely ladies in the import modeling scene to gather and just generally have a meet & greet as well as photo op for their fans in a centralized environment. There was also a Car Show happening, some Vape related vendors coming out to showcase their latest products, even a bit of street food action with Belly Bombz Truck and Yeti Tacos on the scene feeding hungry fans and models.

Kuya Model Expo 2

February 22nd, 2014, R1 Concepts La Habra, CA. – The place where Kuya Model Expo 2 was held this year. We were invited by our friend Abe to be a part of his yearly event and to set up a booth. This event was a great event for models to have a safe outlet to introduce or reconnect themselves with the automotive scene. The event had 2 model lounges good enough to house at least 70 models. A large stage was set up for a bikini / lingerie show hosted by model icon, Jeri Lee.
