Every year the Minnesota Street Rod Association hosts its annual Back to the 50s Weekend at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. It’s an absolute must for any car lover in Minnesota; heck, any car lover in the United States. I personally look forward to it every year. This year just under 12,000 cars model year 1964 […]
In past years I’ve always found myself with very few reasons to want to travel into New York City. Typically I’d hop on the LIRR for the 40 minute ride in for things like the NYC Auto Show. But last year I’ve made the decision to explore the world of two wheels, and I’m not […]
Most of my friends will tell you I never stop talking about California. It’s due to many reasons, among them the weather, the views, and the overall good vibes I get from being there.
A couple months ago I heard that Ken Lingenfelter was having an open house at his collection. It’s been a few years since my last visit, so I decided it’d be a good time to catch up on what’s new. Since this collection is probably the best car collection in Michigan, it attracts a pretty decent […]
After Geoff went to the One Show last year and saw the light, we might be making this a yearly tradition. Portland’s custom bike scene is thriving and it’s integrated well with the local culture. With companies like Icon and places like See See here in town, how could it not be? This year’s show […]
I’d been looking forward to the North American International Auto Show here in Detroit since this time last year. While it may not be the most glamorous or the biggest, Detroit can still go toe to toe with the best of them. And nothing comes close to the new Ford GT, he car no one […]
Another year of Life Blasting is over and what a trip it has been. From rally, to NASCAR, to drifting and sports cars. Unfortunately I couldn’t travel too far this year, but luckily the amount of events around the Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin area are some of the best in the country. For almost my […]
A few weeks ago a friend of mine sent me a text asking if I was busy on December 6th. I opened the attachment and saw it was for RM Motorsports, local company that specializes in restoring historic race cars.
It’s amazing what word of mouth can do. While my dad and I were at our regular first Saturday of the month car show in Ypsilanti, we happened to start talking with a woman who said there also was a Ton Up show going on in town today. So of course, we knew we had to go check that […]
There’s a lot of car shows and races around the world. Many of them are attended by hundreds of thousands of people, but there’s only one Woodward Dream Cruise.
86 Day has become a de-facto holiday for not just the AE86 crowd, but the Japanese car enthusiast community as a whole. Meets and shows have been popping up across the country in the last several years, bolstered by hordes of new FR-S owners wanting a piece of the action. The last few years Slide […]
Known for one of the biggest automotive events in the Bay Area, the Blox team pulled out all the stops for this year’s event. They ramped up the event campaign by putting up a few billboards around the Bay Area and releasing a neat little teaser trailer. This show draws bigger crowds every year and […]
Motorcycles were never really something I was into until a couple years ago. Many factors have contributed to my liking of them, whether it was growing older or just wanting to branch out to something different from cars; while my knowledge of them is still in its infancy I’m glad I’ve gained an interest in them.
I hadn’t been to a car meet in a long time, so when our buddy Albert Facultad invited me to the second Japanese Super Car Meet, I said, “Sure, why not?” I spend so much time around race cars that it was actually kind of refreshing to hang out with street car guys for a change. This […]
Cities and towns all over the world have car shows, it’s the norm. People love to show off their pride and joys to anyone who enjoys cars. One show that is known around the world as one of the best weekly get togethers there is Cars and Coffee in Irvine, California.
In the recent past, I took a trip to Portland, Oregon, to visit my good buddy Joe Ayala. Another friend alerted me to the fact that there would be an awesome custom motorcycle show called the One Show happening there during my stay, so Joe and I checked it out!
Source Interlink Media hosted their 3rd Annual Formula Drift Tech Day where many of this year’s FD drivers could get their cars inspected before the season starts. This cuts out the hassle of having the car teched the weekend of the event, and it’s also where a lot of new builds and liveries are unveiled for […]
