Wekfest Long Beach 2016 | Event Coverage

By  | 

Wekfest Long Beach has been one of the premier shows to attend for car show goers in Southern California. Every year we try our best to come out to support the Wekfest tour because the show usually has good vibes and a lot of people get a chance to come buy stuff from us in person at our booths. The days before Wekfest is usually a struggle for most of us, but this year most of us had no problems with our cars and the most we had to do was wash it.


Jason getting the GTR all cleaned up for tomorrow’s event.


That shine! It’s crazy that Jason had his hand in all of the parts of the GTR, from the air suspension to painting and installing the Liberty Walk kit.

Check out this video of Jason painting his car with JDM Chemicals soap.


Reppin’ from OC to LV.


We had an early roll in time because we had to set up as vendors, good thing we had awesome cars like Chris’s 991 turbo to check out.


Chris owns the first and only 991 Turbo “Cup” car.

Clean S2000 on Work CR-Ultimates.


Brendan on a last minute whim decided to show the Supra. Must be nice to have a sick car to show at Wekfest without planning it.

Glad we got to use the under passage to get into Wekfest this year because the other years we’ve been getting stuck on that small driveway into the grass fields.

Allen and his bagged 350z on Vishnu wheels rolled in all fresh and clean.

The wide body kit and the wide Work Equips look great on this Z.

Perfectly executed Odyssey from Style 63.

It was a good day full of good vibes and interesting situations such as Nimo getting kicked out for having alcohol in his red cup, some stalker guy coming by the booth looking for Hayle, people drawing on the show cars because of the dust and knowing this was the last show that Wekfest will have it at the Queen Mary made it an eventful day. So long Queen Mary, it was fun having a car show by the water, but I’m not going to miss your shitty driveways and dried up grass.


I just want to travel and see cool things. Follow me on Instagram and twitter @nguminh and @thefoodadventurist.
