Benz Patent Motorwagen

The “Prince of K-Town”, Jowe, organized a last minute meet at Cars & Coffee, Irvine.  Our lineup was supposed to be the following:

* Jowe – BMW M5
* Jerry – SP Engineering Built R32 GT-R
* Charlie – MB C63
* A few of Jowe’s friends, whom I’m not very well acquainted with.
* Me – Falken/Toda DC5
* Chris – Klassen/Hamann BMW M5
* Christian – Falken Time Attack IS-F

Anyways, Jowe was hungover to hell and couldn’t even make his own event, lol.  Anyways, it was fun and a handful of very unique cars came out.

My friend, Mulan, wanted a picture next to the Benz Patent Motorwagen.  The Benz Patent Motorwagen is widely regarded as the first automotive.  When I was younger, I’ve read about this in the encyclopedia so it was pretty amazing to see an official/authorized reproduction of it in person.

A picture of Mulan and Chris’s car.  He’s got some 21″ Klassen wheels and a Hamann front lip.

Move!!! Get out of my picture!! ;)

Chillin’ in the 626…

Over the weekend, I rented a $1400 Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L-Series lens for a non-automotive related project. I figured I’d fuck around with it some more before returning it tomorrow. Here’s the aftermath.

My car and Baldy’s car.  Loving my Falken Azenis RT-615Ks!

Baldy’s engine bay.

Chris on the phone, trying to cover his face with my steering wheel.

Toda Racing FTW!

Unfortunately, Jason is our friend.  </3 Varrstoens…

Chillin’ with Ryan’s RX-8.

Ryan conveniently found a cupholder in my trunk.  I love my Falken Azenis RT-615K so much that I even got it on my spare.
