Night Import: Videography by UMWorks | Words by William Lee

Good thing about having a team for a blog is that whenever a staff can't make it to an event, there will be someone else within the team who will step in and take your spot. Last weekend, two infamous blogs; Canibeat & Hellaflush, hosted a mesmerizing event at Queen Mary located in Long Beach, CA. Yes, it's the location where Toyotafest, JCCS, and many other car shows take place. Having an event at such a grand location should make you think, "Whoa, this event is going to be off the hook!" and that's exactly what happened last Saturday. Congratulations to Canibeat & Hellaflush on having a successful first event in Southern California. Check out this video coverage done by our one and only videographer, UMWorks. Enjoy!

Event Coverage | SpoCom 2012 (Part 2)

Night Import: Photography and Words by William Lee

This week has been pretty hectic and I barely had time to compile rest of the coverage for all you guys who were looking forward to part 2. There are still a lot of cars that weren't in part 1 that will be in today's coverage, so don't click on the X button at the top right of your window.

So to add some of my thoughts in part 2, I think SpoCom had a lot more spectators compared to last years event. Tons of people were walking in and out and when I had to wait for more than 40 minutes to just park, I instantly realized SpoCom was going to be off the hook. Car wise, I would say it was similar or less. There were a line of cars that I haven't seen last year, as well as not seeing cars that participated last year. Either way, the show was great and I had a great time.

Event Coverage | SpoCom 2012 (Part 1)

Finally...yes..FINALLY! I decided to attend a car show after being quiet for another 2 weeks. It felt great to spend some time checking out cars in person rather than seeing only photos of cars online through blogs. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy checking out coverages by others, but it really can't beat the time doing what you love to do in person.

I'm guessing many of you guys should know about SpoCom because it's been one of the major car shows here in California going on for years. If you read my coverage on SpoCom last year, I wrote a simplistic history about the show and etc. so check it out if you have time.
Let's just put it this way; the hardest and sickest cars in California will be at this show no matter what. I'm talking about cars you have never seen before, such as the ones that were built only to display at major shows. SpoCom is definitely in that list of 'best car shows', so for you guys who missed it this year, don't forget about it next year.

I actually got to know about this show from a good friend of mine named Paul Nguyen. Yes, he was part of another organization called MAS, but not to waste your time and to keep the story short, he is now the VP of Marketing for SpoCom. Paul and I have been talking for a few months about SpoCom and when he reached out to me asking if I can promote the show, I couldn't step back and ignore it, because he was personally an awesome friend of mine and always helped out Night Import. I did have to decline his offer of holding a meet together though, so my bad Paul!
Anyways, let's get on to the coverage, shall we?
