I didn’t even know I was going to be in Northern California until about a day before I left. A few friends of mine were going up to Berkeley this past Friday for a concert and while I was hesitent to go because of my schedule, I kind of wanted to tag along to see a few friends that live in the City. I eventually ended up getting a ticket last minute and attending the concert as well. Since we were going to be staying in East Bay until Sunday anyway, the general consensus was to make the slight detour to San Jose and attend Wekfest.
I hadn’t initially planned on attending any other Wekfest this year, save for Long Beach. I’ve been busy the past couple weeks managing the store front with the new product, as well as getting things ready for my trip to Japan this coming week. On top of all that I had a few design gigs and freelance projects I was invested in, so I wasn’t sure I would be able to spare an entire weekend – things just didn’t line up (when it rains it pours). In the end though I figured a small break would be beneficial to clear my mind. It worked, as I’m not only back on track already, I got to spend a weekend with some great friends and see some awesome builds.
Speaking of great friends, here is a horribly out of focus glamour shot of Kristian, Dilly, Karl and Carol, whom I was with for most of Sunday. I was able to see some old friends the day before as well – squeeze it in when you can!
Kristian and I stopped at the Rays booth to drool over the new Gram Light 57Transcend they had on display. A pair of these are definitely on my shopping list. The etched ‘Rays’ on the top of the spoke is an awesome feature.
One of the cleanest EF’s pretty much ever. The M’s Motors build was stopping people all day. Joey actually has some extra photos of it on his blog.
With a fully-built, bridgeported 13B, it is by all means a race car. It would make for the perfect street driven, weekend track car.
Thanks for stopping by! Things are going to be pretty quiet this next week. I’m working on editing a new Podcast, but after that I’ll be traveling throughout Japan for a little while. Cheers!
