3rd Annual Motor Union.
Sorry this is going up late. I am catching up on work,life, going poop… Yeah. I didn’t think I was gonna make it to Motor Union after 2 car shows on Saturday. The heat was burning the life out of me. When Sunday rolled around I actually found myself up early and awake and ready to go. Not a normal thing for me. LOL! After getting Karen out of Bed we got cleaned up and jetted off to Motor Union. The venue was pretty close. I think we only drove 50 minutes and we were there. I sometimes forget how close we live to San Diego sometimes.
We arrived at Green Flash Brewing Co. and began looking for parking on the street. lots of cars were already parked. This was a free event so I thought it would be pretty busy. The Brewery was a really cool spot. They had cars out in the parking lot as usual but their was also cars parked inside the brewery. HRE Wheels had some cool cars inside and they were also raffling off a set of their wheels in raffle. I thought that was pretty awesome. HRE Wheels are fucking BANK. LOL!
Beer was flowing. They also had some food trucks that were really good. Here is some pics of the overview of the parking lot.
One of the cars that stood out Immediately to my eyes was this Evo X. Super clean execution. I don’t usually like red cars or CCW wheels but this just worked for me. Who knew.
This Bimmer was next to the Evo X.
Auto Fashion also pulled double duty and showed up with a nice lineup of VIP cars. Freddie once again gave us shelter from the sweltering sun. Much appreciated guys ! Oh, And thanks for dinner last night Freddie ! I owe you one sir.
They also once again took best of show home.
Speaking of dope. I finally met Chris who owns a dope ass IS. I have been seeing this car online for awhile now and really loved it’s execution. Chris the owner was rocking some dice valve caps from us but was missing one. After we met I promised to send him a replacement set and some goods. Great dude. Great car.
Can’t get enough of this color. Rad.
I’m seeing Red.
Slammed purple people eater.
There was a great variety of cars at the show from Hot Rods to Rat Rods and some really nice Old School BMW’s. I really liked this one. Super clean.
This wheel was attached to a really slammed S4. The pic came out horrible of the car so here is the wheel it was sitting on. LOL!
Slammed honda Civic. This dude was running our plate frame. I threw stickers in cars that were running are frames and what now. Did you get one ?
Just add low and wheels. These Vdubs always look good slammed on wheels.
I’ve seen this Supra online before. Nice to see it in person. This thing looks angry.
Nice and clean E46 on mag Blue TE’s.
This bimmer was inside the brewery and impossible to get a good picture of so I just shot the details of the wheels and brakes. nice touches.
Us VS. THEM STI. Cool snake graphics.
Cool little Miata. I usually don’t care much for them but I saw this one after the show flying down the highway and kinda’ gained some appreciation for them.
This nice little Subaru Bugeye from Wrong Fitment Crew. I couldn’t get any good pics of this car. Sorry buddy. Big Ups to Josh also from WFC who I saw on Sunday at infamous but he was a little…um.. Wheeled. LOL!
Nate Hamilton was there with his Formula D S13. I love the graphics on this car. Nate was signing autographs on posters of the car. 5 And A Dime sponsors this car Hard. Support Skateboarders who drift !
I shot a bunch more cars but the pics are awful. I shot everything on my iPhone after my point and click shit and spit on Saturday.
One awesome part of the show was the Outsiders BMX show. They had their own little competition going with Old School BMX Bikes ! my jaw was dropping and my childhood BMX dreams were taking over my brain as I looked at all the classics that were there. unbelievable line up. Rhandy Yons heads up Outsiders BMX and even had really cool wood plaque awards for the BMX guys. Well put together.
Peep some pics from the Outsiders Showcase.
Sick right ? Also, Quick shout out To Brothers Bicycle Co. who had a booth there. They had the sickest 24′ Cruiser put together using a Liquid frame and their parts from Brothers. Really cool cats to talk to. I had such a boner for their bike they had on display i forgot to take a pic of it. LOL! Story of my life. If want more pics of the Outsiders show go HERE.
Thats a wrap for my weekend pretty much. I really enjoyed the Motor Union show and hopefully it will happen again next year. Jason was a great host. If you want to see more coverage of Motor Union 2012
