Setting the groundwork for spring events was XS CarNight. XSCN comes in hot for its 3rd year in a row and each year gets better and better. Hidden away behind the Aquarium of the Pacific and adjacent to Pier Point Landing, a spot for deep sea charters. XSCN has a stunning view of Shoreline Village and the Queen Mary while accompanied by the Rainbow Lighthouse above.
I arrived shortly after 6 o’clock after fighting traffic with prom going down at the Aquarium of the Pacific. I met up with Brian from Infinite Auto Design as he escorted me in. The sun was about the drop and just about every photographer was out trying to capture the perfect shot at that perfect time.
The main stage was surrounded by a entourage of RWB’s, including our friend Jon Sibal’s 964 on Work Meisters.
I caught a few shots like the drop-top e30 with a Pandem kit executed by CA Tuned.
Busted Knuckle Garage had a very clean set up with air-cooled dubs.
Arthur’s StanceNation x Aimgain FR-S
As the sun dropped, shadows were in almost every shot. I waited a few moments and then pulled out my night weapon of choice and continued with the event shots.
Ron’s Amuse S2k was one of the first with bright red Volk Racing wheels
Ducati 1299 Panicle S
Liberty Walk R8
All Road Outfitters Audi Quattro
EuroKlasse’s F80 M3
Thanh’s Vlene FR-S in the darkness by AutoTuned.
By the time i reached Thanh’s FR-S, it was practically pitch black. The only lights were along the path, and the interior portions of the peninsula was in complete darkness. Vehicles began to leave and left a open playground to capture the remaining.
Violent Clique was in full effect.
Chris’s MK5 on Work Seekers SX
Fausto’s S2k on chrome and gold 3-piece WORK Meisters
George’s e36 with Weds Kranze Cerberus
Taking it back to the old school classic euros was…
3 Point Social Club with a set of classic Benz’s such as Jimmy’s 280e
As participates cleared I had more walking space. I stopped by Infinite Auto Design and captured their wide body S2K and EVO
I also captured Chris’s beautiful NSX on chrome SSR SP1
The Acid Green RWB on HRE’s which was about the only RWB left of the grass
TunerCults Liberty Walk R35
Old School Maxima Wagon
V6 EcoBoost F100 by WagnerTuning
I couldn’t say bye without shooting Brandon’s e30 with a Pandem kit.
In the end, it was the first time I have ever shot an event with my night weapon. It was down and dirty, but what other way to capture so many car’s in the short time I had to capture one of the best events to hit the shores!
Check below for more shots.
