Another year and another amazing time at this year’s Simply Clean event. We come to Destination Daytona at 7:30am and the long lines were already forming outside. This year was a little different for me personally because I was secretly working on my car for the past 3 weeks as my full fender flare kit from Circuit Garage finally came in almost a year and 3 months of waiting. You had no idea how hard it was not posting any updates on my progress, only my girlfriend Roxie knew about it. My boys at De’Caudella’s auto body shop did an amazing job on Summer and with the attention she got at CCW Pre-Meet and Simply Clean 6 show it was all worth it!
The show it self was good as well, Nickoli always puts the right mix of cars inside the pavilion. As always its the meeting of old friends from all over the east coast that you don’t regularly see is awesome. I also met a lot of new faces too from my instagram which was always nice to put faces behind the screen names. Thanks again Nickoli and the rest of the staff at Simply Clean, you made another successful show. Time to see what’s in store for 2015! #sc7prep

Last weekend I was over for the annual Art Basel show over in Miami, Fl. I don’t attend the actual show itself… that isn’t my thing. What I do go down there for is the amazing display of graffiti and street art displayed on abandon builds, warehouses, and store walls. Sadly I’m still editing the graffiti pictures, but I did finish a few of some cars I shot out there. Enjoy guys!

This past Saturday Titan Motorsports opened their doors once again for their annual open house car meet. I haven’t been to their new location and just by driving up to their building you can smell the high octane in the air. It’s just insane all of the car’s they own and tune under one house. Add up all of the horsepower you and your family have under on roof and you still won’t come up with half of what their cars put out. It was great for them to open the doors to the stance out scene out there, its nice to bring all vehicles under one roof for a day.

The article is finally out, my good friend Leo from State of Stance did an awesome job with the article. I would like to thank him for using my pictures up on his website. I would like to thank Manny for making a little detour for a quick photoshoot. I hope you guy’s like the article and pictures, now if only his brother Ramon will hurry up with his S2000 so I can shoot it soon.

It always nice to go out with fellow photographers to do some late night pictures. Its nicer when they too have a nice car for me to photograph other than my own. This Volkswagen GLI is no exception, it had before CCW Classics like my car, but he wanted to upgrade to a crazier sizing and new look, so he went with a CCW LM5 face wheel. Beautiful polished wheels looks amazing on a dark color car. Hope to do an extensive photoshoot soon, I want to see these wheels shine in the sun light.

First weekend of December an event called Primary Flight is held in the Wynwood Art District. Here world famous and underground artist come out and show their art work. Some at galleries that they rent for the weekend or a lot of them show off their art work by actually doing graffiti work on the walls in the Art District area. For 2011 it would be my 2nd year coming out as my brother from another mother invited me along back in 2010. I was hooked and I hope to make this an every year trip down to Miami. On the last day I decided to take the last pictures around the area with my S2000. Hopefully this year I’ll be able to do this with more cars, can’t wait!

After almost 7 years of daily driving my S, its time to give it a much needed break.
This 2011 Toyota Tundra Double Cab SR5 TRD package with the 4.6L V8 came into my dealership and snagged it up. Lots of added options like backup cam, blue tooth audio, etc…Got a few things brewing for it but nothing too major, might think about some CCW’s for it with a 3inch lift ;). Can’t wait to trailer the S with it for some much needed track days
