Miami Hella Flush VI: Part 1
August 1, 2010, 10:57 pm
Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , ,

I was highly disappointed after hearing that Hella Flush 6 was coming to Florida that it would be in Miami, certainly I hoped that Orlando would be the chosen site simply because of its central location and huge draw.  Either way the event occurred in Miami in conjunction with Remix which i was also not thrilled about, I have always enjoyed the groundswell that is Hella Flush but was not impressed that it would be limited to 150 cars and that it would be tagged onto an event that catered primarily to the Lowrider and Donk community, certainly both of those styles of car customization bring a lot to the table but I felt like it muddied the organic and real nature of a true Hella Flush event.  None the less the car show appears to be a huge success although i did not stick around in Miami to witness it first hand… I had to much work to get done to spend an extra day in MIA.

There was no shortness of amazing cars or people to the event

this tC is simply clean with great fitment and sporting a ton of stickers

look at the customized Scion logo

the Honda was a beast and god only knows the stupid HP this cranks out

Im glad to see these events still pull great artists and people willing to really put their cars out there as a form of self expression

pink RSX… so ill

great color scheme chosen for this 350z

this altima is so sick and so clean love it

GTR motor shot

hella dumped and the orange is one hell of an eye catcher

beast mode?!

sunworks RSX… always reppin the sunshine state right gotta love these guys

and a sick sunworks ep3

….more updates to come

Import Alliance Summer 2010 in Tennessee has already attracted a ton of people with droves of some of the hottest imports making their way into the track

the road in was practically a parking lot in itself

the meet had tons of eg hatches many of which I have covered on here

The green s2k i had on here a few months ago has even gone thru some changes since I last saw it

the ksport air jacks are such a cool touch on this car

RHD bitches, simple, clean, respect.

this car kills me every time with its mustache

keg, surfboard, and a v dub what more could you need

ls1 in and rx7… this swap seems to get more and more popular

j swapped del sol… wow, i love the fact that he kept the green and black theme thru out

yellow and blue… what more can you say but that it oozes classic jdm (spoon sport) colors

street sweeper

gutsy call with the rims as not many cars can pull those off without looking weird but i really like it

this car is all over the place… tye dye, chrome, carbon fiber, and urban camo

the yellow and blue theme strikes again…. figures considering those are spoon sport parts in there

the ARC induction box is cool no matter what ride its in

sick nissan, respect the t tops

love the gold and green color combo on this EG it is so classy

2jz drift beast

Texas subscribes to the theory that that do everything bigger, this event would seem to be no exception.  This car meet has been put into effect as a benefit to raise money for the local childrens hospital and raised $15,000 this year

As you can see there is no shortage of people, and NOS was kind enough to bring the energy

of course with those energy drinks there is never a shortage of excitement to be had

rockin the d series!

clean bag setup

the more and more common rusted hood

k swap!

AE86 lookin like a fighter plane

NOS powered ITBs :P

Turbo B Series with some intercooler spray, baller!

CRV with a B20/LS Vtec Frankenstein

classic looking 350z

Turbo G35 goodness

END!

Thanks Mayday Garage for pictures from the event



Formula Drift: Evergreen Pt 2

Results:

1st. Tanner Foust
2nd. Ryan Tuerck
3rd. Darren McNamara

There was no lack of excitement at Evergreen speedway once the top 32 were determined.  There were several wrecks throughout the afternoon including some guys powering right thru other drivers as they approached the power alley.  Vaughn Gittin Jr found himself knocked out early by Fredric Aasbo in the round of 16 allowing several guys to try to make up ground in the race for the championship.  Tanner Foust looked pretty much unstoppable all afternoon dominating guys as he reeled them in almost ever time.  The judges gave him several one more times to contend with when i felt like he was a pretty clear cut winner but by the end of the day it was pretty undeniable he was the man to beat.

Tanner Foust

Verdier in the wall

Michihiro Takatori who I felt like didnt really deserve a few decisions he got

Vaughn Gittin Jr

Fredric Aasbo knocks out Vaugn Gittin Jr, he looked really good even against Foust
