Yeah, you hear dyno day and you think “egos clashing and people getting wet as they try to determine who can urinate the furthest”, but Vanku put on quite a day. There weren’t any exotics, there were no models, but that was okay. What there was was sufficient, and that is a lot of really great people with some cool cars.
A wide array of cars flooded in, many making surprising numbers.
With good music, good food, good music, and lots of noise the day flew by.
I’m blessed to have some friends at work that are into cars. Just a few floors down is David who drives a Dinan M5.
This thing shakes the building whenever he starts it. I have never heard an M5 sound quite like it.
He unfortunately lost his previous black on black M5, but this Carbon Black Dinan is a lovely consolation prize.
Mr. Lu is also a very talented photographer. Check him out on instagram @KietLu.
Punch coming through in the clutch again with this beautiful 911 Targa.
Now I have NEVER been a fan of any 911 Targa. To be honest I was never really an admirer Continue reading
This looks cooler than the others, but it doesn’t fit the theme so it wont be used sadly.
…Two Texas jobs in a row. Inside joke for the smooth street style cars down in TX. A recreation of the D1 Street Legal banners.
Poster options for Lone Star Bash this year. They wanted a Western Theme of course. This is a bit more cartoonish than I intended, but its better than skulls and blood every drift event puts on their flyers.
…and one I did more in my own personal style. A lot more simple and interesting in my opinion.
A flyer design for RSD.
Last weekend I went with a friend to NJMP to do HPDE at the Lightening course.
To no surprise there was a ton of nice cars in attendance with equally impressive drivers.
A few 911’s and 911 Turbos.
One of my favorites of the day an Ariel Atom (not the V8 one though 😦 )
BMW’s definitely ruled the day and various trims.
This beauty was probably my favorite car from the day.
240Z’s are one of the most iconic cars ever made. This owner made a monster out of this particular one. A small block V8 with E36 brakes, suspension, and drivetrain. All metal fabrication done in his garage.
Even the entire rear subframe.
I particularly liked his interior.
He said he is working on making it fast, then he will finish the looks.
One driver in particular was very special. Back in the late 80’s I lived in Pittsburgh and my family attended a small church. We left around 1990 and have not seen some of our old friends in about 24 years. The Pastor of that church just so happened to be driving his S2000 that day. A very cool surprise.
He took me for a few laps and I must say he does not drive how you would imagine a pastor would.
This gentleman in his Z4M coupe I hear is a legend on BMW forums. His car was quite impressive, but he had to retire early due to a power steering leak spraying onto his rotors. I hope he made the trip back to Boston okay.
The staff was friendly and helpful even though they did not like stretched tires and slammed cars.
