Extreme Autofest San Diego, where the show keeps Up All Nite long, and the headline performance is Too $hort!

EAF_just_06

We tend to get a little spoiled with all the car shows and events that are put together in the LA area; there’s almost one every other weekend or so. But for San Diego natives this is the big show, it’s become a tradition of sorts for EAF to reach out to San Diego’s finest to show off their rides.

EAFSD-9774 EAFSD-9771 EAFSD-9772 EAFSD-9784 EAFSD-9787 EAFSD-9792 EAFSD-9790 EAFSD-9796 EAFSD-9798 EAFSD-9804 EAFSD-9778 EAFSD-9812

This was our first EAF appearance as the Tjin Edition X DaYUUM Roadshow, and I think our display fit right in.

EAF_just_05EAFSD-9827

In a car scene so saturated with import cars, most of the hype is pumped over our green Rocket Bunny Scion FR-S by Phantasy Kolors in Washington.

EAF_just_03EAFSD-9819EAFSD-9821EAFSD-9858EAFSD-9817

Which is all well and good, but that tends to leave our awesome, trailer hauling, American domestic, Ford F-150 not always getting the attention it deserves.

EAF_just_04EAFSD-9777

But at EAF, where the spectators are just as diverse as the car entries, both were the stars of the RoadShow.

EAF_just_01

Speaking of stars, the energetic San Diego native, Jessica Xiao was rocking the booth for us.

eaf sd gil 1EAF_just_02

Whether it was taking photos or taking names (for the raffle!), she kicked butt the entire show. Her high-spirited personality helped bring in a lot of foot traffic to our booth, from all sorts of spectators.

EAF_Byron_30 EAF_Byron_31 EAF_Byron_32 EAF_Byron_33EAFSD-9803

Also with us was the UTI crew handing out literature, posing for photos, and answering any UTI related questions. Brains and beauty all rolled into one with Bells and Juliana at the helm.

EAF_just_08

You have imports new and old, luxury builds and race spec builds, American classics and street rods, ruckuses and motorcycles. This is the one show where the lines of car types get blurred.

EAF_just_27

There is a lot to get through so bear with me as we pick out some of the standout rides of the event. Don’t worry, at least you’re feet wont get as tired as mine walking the entire lot. Unless you’re reading this one your iPad or tablet or Samsung Android that’s basically a tablet, then maybe you’ll be on your feet for a while too, just don’t walk into anything okay?

EAF_just_09 EAF_Byron_09EAF_Byron_08

At one end of the same row there were those Chevy street rods, and at the other this aggressive FD and mean Rocket Bunny FR-S.

Nothing short of crazy here at EAF…

EAF_Byron_04 EAF_just_10

The tire isn’t even stretched! It’s just hanging on for dear life in the middle of the wheel.

EAF_Byron_01 EAF_just_12

LowKey is one of the prominent car clubs in SD and they have some pretty clean cars. Like this pair of s2k’s and Jeff’s civic just Wreckin’ it!

EAF_just_11

Been seeing this stunning BMW at every show it seems, collecting awards left and right as it hangs out with AutoFashion USA, another SD native.

EAF_Byron_05

Style Over Comfort with an Audi Over Asphalt.

EAF_Byron_15

Veilside NSX doing its business as usual.

EAF_Byron_12 EAF_Byron_13

Liberty Walks everywhere!

EAF_just_16

You don’t usually think Honda, let alone Civic when you associate with VIP. But this burgundy with gold theme is just so seksi.

EAF_just_15

Bright yellow paint, white Racing Harts…oh my JDM nostalgia feels are kicking in.

EAF_Byron_16

Another bright beauty.

EAF_just_24 EAF_just_25 EAF_Byron_03 EAF_Byron_11

The Datsun game was on point.

EAF_Byron_06

Bring the mo#asjkfhldk$jfg&bl*akshSkfding Ruckus!

EAF_Byron_17 EAF_Byron_18 EAF_just_23 EAF_just_21

Project Zero had a nice line up as well, especially their battle ready S14.

EAF_just_19

I wonder if any of the other souped up cars could hold a lick to this NotASoccerMom Odyssey?

EAF_just_20

Cause this people mover is pushing over 1000+ HP! Never be late to school or to the market again.

EAF_just_34 EAF_just_35 EAF_just_36

I’m used to the smell of gas, exhaust fumes, and burnt rubber at car shows, but rarely aerosol cans. Spotted a section where live artist were creating some wild spray can masterpieces; definitely a different smell, sight, and, sense but overall very appealing.

Venturing off to the other end of the show now, it’s like stepping into a whole other world.

EAF_just_32 EAF_just_33

First spotting this Fresh Prince (of “Bel-Air”).

EAF_just_28 EAF_just_29 EAF_just_30

These old school Chevy trucks were magnificent. The body lines, the retro style, pristine condition, you don’t have to be a fan to appreciate beauty like these.

EAF_just_31

Before we check out what went down at the model’s lounge, we were spotted by the one and only Betty Boop!

With the foot traffic easing up a bit, we got a chance to get some snaps of Ms. Jess X

EAF_Byron_24 EAF_Byron_22EAF_Byron_25EAF_Byron_26 EAF_Byron_23

Can be imitated, but never duplicated. Jessica always has fun when the cameras are on her.

EAF_Byron_27 EAF_Byron_29 EAF_Byron_28

Jess X, making everyone green with envy.

EAF_Byron_46

Let’s bring on some of the other models shall we?

R1 Concepts had some seski eye candy for everyone to see and take pictures.

EAF_Byron_34 EAF_Byron_35 EAF_Byron_36 EAF_Byron_37eaf sd 2014-1546

Look but don’t touch, you wouldn’t want to break any of Erica‘s Laws because R1 also brought in Big Abe to keep the creepers at bay.

eaf sd gil 8

Male model or body-guard, I’m not sure what his official title is anymore but either way he’ll stop you in your tracks if your mess with him or his people.

eaf sd 2014-1559 eaf sd 2014-1561 eaf sd gil 6 eaf sd gil 9

Also part of the R1 team, the beautiful, bodacious and sometimes bizarre (in a good way!), Brittani Paige.

EAF_just_07

Glen‘s s2k makes everyone say DaYUUM!

EAF_Byron_38 EAF_Byron_39 EAF_Byron_40 EAF_Byron_41 EAF_Byron_42 EAF_Byron_43

But even more so when hottie Kairi Drème is all over it. Wanna ride?

EAF_Byron_44 EAF_Byron_45

Cute as a lamb, Jenny Lam also made an always stunning appearance.

EAF_Byron_47 EAF_Byron_48

And look who we got here! Hot DaYUUM Hunnie Ms. Amanda Kerr is back in the SoCal and already getting back into the groove of things. It’s like she never left…so please don’t leave again!

In case you were at the show and didn’t notice, but the EAF staff always provides the models with a theme they could follow; this year…Sports!

Here are a couple of ladies really playing to the crowd and sporting their Chargers jerseys, Lynn Lyn and Christine Zegers.

Sandra Wong going with a simple #19 jersey, why? Well 1+9 = the perfect 10 that she is! We were fortunate enough to feature here recently in an up close and personal interview.

Batter up! Step to the plate to see if you can match up to Morning Star or if she’s just out of your league.

When she’s not racing on the track, the sporty Lea Anne is showing off her seksi football stance

EAF_Byron_51 EAF_Byron_53 EAF_Byron_55EAF_Byron_52

The loveable Lyna Ly with a racer track suit. It does look good on her, but I’m not quite sure if it’s up to code as far as track safety, unless maybe if the bikini top is you know, fireproof? 😉

EAF_just_40 EAF_just_38EAFSD-9884EAFSD-9885

With all the yummy eye candy around the show we had to come up with something fresh, so why not bring a crowd by throwing free stuff? So we band together (literally, like with rubberbands) and came up with these goodie packages real quick. Once there was a crowd we started throwing them up in the air for people to fight over attempt to grab. It was pretty fun and engaging, I think we might do this more often, so come by the booth a check it out!

Catch you guys at our next shenanigans! @justdayuum

Extreme AutoFest 2013 – San Diego

It’s another busy year for DaYUUM and I’m a little disappointed in myself that we haven’t been able to pop out our show recaps quick enough. Our personal goal is a few days to a week at the latest but preparations for the next event has kept us busy and behind. A couple weeks ago, we headed south to Qualcomm Stadium for Extreme Autofest’s San Diego event. Headlining the entertainment was DJ Quik.

Last year, we attended with a full staff including our DaYUUM Hunnies and stayed overnight for the event. This year, there was so much going on that not everyone could attend, so instead of staying overnight we managed to run a skeleton crew and drove to SD during the day of the event. Myself, Nilo and Scottie attended the event – four, if you count Glen from Long Beach Auto Tech, whom also joined us.

The drive to San Diego from LA County made for a long day, so long that once we arrived and settled in, Nilo had already fallen asleep before the event started.

The day started at 7:30 AM, when Scottie and myself met with Glen at a local Ralph’s. We headed south on the 405 and made a pitstop to meet Nilo and for me to pick up the Tjin Edition Fusion.

We arrived at the venue and was immediately greeted by Ale. Ale and the crew has always taken very good care of us and since we were a little late to the party that morning, we were quickly taken in via escort.

EAF SD was also the same day as WekFest SJ, so some of our friends were up there as well. We still had great friends there such as AutoFashion and their latest endeavor, Trendy Vape.

EAFSD2013-8383Flossy was there with the lovely Myra. They are a manufacturer of custom shift knobs for your car. They also had a few hot rides on display including a widebody FD.

EAFSD2013-8378

EAFSD2013-8397We don’t request much when we go to an event because we know last minute demands can add additional stress to the team, but Nilo has always made one request which EAF has always honored, and that is to be near the models lounge. In the model’s lounge was our long time favorites including Ashley Clark and Amanda Kerr.

This event’s theme was pin-up. It’s a pretty cool theme because it really puts the models in character. So far, every model we have shot has always wanted to do a pin-up shoot, so maybe this theme was a request from the ladies that attended the event.

Since we were close to the model’s lounge, Glen and Nilo pulled in the ladies to shoot with the cars. By doing so, it created a crowd, to the point that it was difficult to set up for a shot but at the same we time had some good laughs.

Away from the models lounge, Marie was with Lexani, so I decided to harass her.

EAFSD2013-8448-2

EAFSD2013-8449-2

EAFSD2013-8451

EAFSD2013-8460Here is her flirty pic reenacted… At first she did it so nonchalant but I wasn’t quick on the draw with the camera.

The golden hour was upon us so we tried to get as many shoots in as possible. Some ran longer than others and I didn’t bring any strobes because, well, I didn’t plan on shooting any models in the extent that we did. It got late; by the time we shot with Brittani Paige, it was almost next to impossible to capture anything in focus, but I tried.

EAFSD2013-8649Alexia Cortez is one of the more known girls, there is always a line to take a simple picture of her. When we managed to drag her from the model’s lounge, all nearby photographers swarmed like bees, so we got what we could get.

EAFSD2013-8442-2Sexy Lilly Evans was kind enough to give us some of her time. We will be setting up a shoot with her soon.

Glen then went to the R1 Concept’s booth and not only did he drink all their alcohol, he also borrowed some of their ladies.

EAFSD2013-8944

EAFSD2013-8953Then it got late, but we were able to capture a couple shots of Brittani Paige, included this ghosted one of her. haha

Back to some of the other cars…

We had a great time and before we headed back to LA we had a feast at Gordon Biersch. Probably not the best idea before driving 2 hours home, but everyone was starving and it’s become a tradition to eat after an event to unwind and recap the day. On the way home we almost witnessed Nilo jacking up his NSX when he attempted to 4×4 over a center divider. That would have made for a long day!

We want to thank Extreme Autofest for the hospitality, we always enjoy their events and entertainment.
