2019 - A Year In Review

2019 was an incredible year, its hard to believe that we've closed out another year. I've put together a few shots from this year.

Not all events went as planned but you never know what you'll end up with. The 2 Rauh-Welt Porsche's may have been the only cars on display when the event at Adam's Polishes needed to be rescheduled at the last minute.

I found in 2019 that the local shop events like the one at Top Rank with a Millennium Jade Green R34 on display along with numerous other skylines were some of my favorites events this year.

This year was just a teaser for things to come in 2020 for travelling to attend car events globally. Getting to attend the Grand Prix in Monaco was epic and I'm going to start 2020 with a trip to Japan to cover the Tokyo Auto Salon, with plans to also drive all around the Tokyo area to experience as much of the car culture I can cram into the trip. The pic below was from Prince Rainier III of Monaco's car collection.

One of my greatest passions in life is racing. This year I was able to get my project car started, I will start posting some progress articles (and diy's) once I'm able to dedicate some more time on the build. Hopefully in 2020 I'll get back to it and get some seat time. It was great to see Spoon Sports president Tatsuru Ichishima at the I Heart Honda Event out on the track in his S2000.

As always the larger events in 2019 didn't disappoint. Shows like Wekfest and of course the SEMA show provided a look at some of the coolest builds of 2019. A surprise for me and something I've added to my schedule for 2020 will be attending more Barrett Jackson Auctions. This year I attending the auction in Vegas, the show was a cross between a mini SEMA and a really solid cars and coffee. The auction had all types of builds covered under one roof and of course all of them were for sale.

This year's SEMA Show had the most media coverage I've ever seen. With so many of the tuners providing sneak peaks of their builds before the their vehicles were unveiled at the show. In past years it would take days, weeks or even months to see everything.

With so many creative builders emerging the bar is forever being raised. The next generation of builders like Bisimoto are always pushing past what was previously the limit and creating builds on a whole new level.

Stay tuned for a lot more coverage in 2020

Everything Else. Enjoy!!
