Event: Wekfest LA 2011 v.3

I might as well just dive into part three of Wekfest coverage.  This post is going to have a lot of Honda’s, and a lot of S2000’s – as if that were a bad thing.  I was pretty surprised at the amount that were in attendance, and all of them were awesome.  By this point I pretty much lost all determination to cover this show in an organized fashion, so most of these will appear scattered.  Enjoy.

Let’s get on with some more Wekfest LA coverage from Long Beach, CA.  I ended up writing this entire post before I even wrote the introduction.  I never know how to start off the second part of event coverage.  This second part has a huge variety of cars, which is pretty cool, but it made it look kind of sloppy.  The grass section was gigantic and hard to cover methodically, so my pictures are a bit scattered.  At this point I was also running purely on Red Bull and Skittles, so it’s likely that I got a little sidetracked. Oh well, enjoy.

Up until Friday I wasn’t even sure if I was going to be able to attend Wekfest LA.  Requesting days off isn’t as easy as it used to be with my new position.  Somehow, last minute, I managed to get my shift covered; so what did I do?  That’s right – I went to Las Vegas.  Good idea right?  I hopped on a flight out of LAX Saturday afternoon, chilled on the Strip for 10 hours, and made my way back to Long Beach in time to shoot Wekfest.  Well, it turns out it wasn’t such a good idea.  I ended up losing way more than I intended, got no sleep, and smelled like cigarettes all day.  I gotta say though, Wekfest more than made up for it.  On top of that, it was probably the most beautiful day in Long Beach this year.  Unbelievable cars, good food, music, friends and great weather; can’t ask for much more.  I’ll  do my best to try and walk you through the show a little before I go ballistic with the pics.  Click past the break for more.
