Most of you guys already know Night-Import couldn't make it to the biggest car show of the year, WEKFEST. Trust me, some of our California photographers and I really wanted to make it, but things just didn't work out and we were depressed as hell. We always want to bring you guys the best coverages for major events and missing WEKFEST is a huge disappointment for us.
Well what is WEKFEST and what's the big deal about not covering it? WEKFEST is an event hosted by Weksos Industries located in San Francisco. These guys started the event since 2009 and have been bringing out the sickest, freshest, sexiest, and finest cars in Southern and Northern California. You have to be chosen to show your car so it makes the event even more legit. How crazy does this event get? Let's just say Weksos 2010 was shut down by the Fire Marshall's because of the amount of people. That pretty much explains how important and huge this event is for the year. But putting aside the story for a moment, let me tell you guys how I was able to get some coverage for our site.
Last month, our photographer Chris Sempek introduced me to a a very well-known photographer, Deejay Murdok. I contacted him today to see if we were able to share his own coverage of WEKFEST with you guys today and he gladly accepted our request. I guarantee you guys won't be disappointed and will be wanting to see more of his work.
I already looked through the Deejay's WEKFEST coverage on nwp4life and felt as if I was at the show.
Enough of my talking and straight to the photos!
You guys have probably seen this Honda Insight on several of our event coverages.
and this STi on BBS LM's as well.
There's been some teaser shots going around the net and from what I've heard, the place was so packed spectators and even medias had to wait in line for a few hours. Also, the cars were parked close to each other so if you didn't have a wide-angle lens like Deejay...good luck.
Bisimoto's insane CR-Z.
Another CR-Z next to Bisimoto's.
The car that got the Best Stance award.
EuroProjektz in the house.
Sitting perfectly with the fenders.
Haven't seen a setup like this before.
Seen it, Love it.
Few other s2k's down the line.
Project Mu's and Volks...WIN!
Nicely fitted s2k.
Now that's unique and awesome.
Rare wheels once again.
Always and still impressed looking at Honda engine bays like this.
Good to see my neighbors Infinit Wheels. These guys have some sick cars and known for their setups.
Legit wheels + BBK = ?
It's JDM yO's Lexus IS.
Clean! White on White never gets old.
Big Mike's Prelude.
If it's the same car I'm thinking of, different set of wheels from the Gold Mugen's it had before.
Very nice shot by Deejay.
Are those gold dipped SSR Vienna's? Sexy!
Bentley + Rotiforms.
The famous Five Axis + Air Runner Lexus.
Platinum VIP's project car that was put together before the show.
Looks like Noel's ride from Canibeat.
Look what we have here. VIP Modular Wheels equipped Lamborghini Gallardo LP-560.
Probably the best looking Acura of its class. I've seen the ride in person and it's gorgeous.
Check out those insanely concaved TE37's and the body kit. S2k please!
and~~~ ending Part 1 with this picture. That model at the right was at the Extreme Autofest/Remix car show on Saturday. Seems like she flew to SF the next day.
Stay tuned for Part 2 and thanks to Deejay Murdok for the photos!
