The Crowd Pleaser. Sometimes.

We know you’ve all seen Khiem’s FD RX-7 a billion times on the internet, but for whatever reason, most people have never “really” seen it aside from some small local car meets. Lately, it’s been on stage at last month’s Cars & Coffee and even more recently, TX2K14, where this type of car belongs.

When the hood goes up, everyone crowds around within seconds at Cars & Coffee

Sitting pretty with the three rotary powered FD's at TX2K14

Most people think FD's don't make an insane amount of power, especially at TX2K

Until that hood goes up

I believe "dick magnet" is the correct term as Linhbergh and Khiem demonstrates

Man/dick power

We recently had the pleasure of bringing some of the best photogs from California to Texas in time for TX2K14, and were able to watch these two monsters work their cameras. Every day, every morning, we would all meet up at 6:30am sharp at Catalina Coffee, and shoot 1-2 cars in the morning, get coffee, get lunch, crash out, wake up and meet again at Catalina Coffee at 5:30pm every night, everyday, and shoot 1-2 cars in the evening, then get coffee, get dinner, go out and race. Wash, rinse, repeat.

To say it was a hectic week would be an understatement. Trying to coordinate 14 photoshoots with two different photographer is not something I would ever want to do again -without coffee.

Every night, it's freeway time. Karissa Hosek agrees.

Just like yesterday morning, this morning myself, John Zhang, Patrick Lauder and Danh Phan met up our subjects, Tom Syhachack and Rob Amason, owners of a beautiful S2000 and BMW E28 at the butt ass crack of dawn. We met up, drove out to downtown and snapped some pretty epic shots. Doing this twice a day everyday will take it’s toll on our sleep, but if you’re like John Zhang and can slam down 3 vanilla iced lattes at Blacksmith, you’ll be good.

Event Coverage: TX2K10 Supra Nationals Dyno Day – Show’n’Shine

Greetings!
Sorry about the delay, but work was starting to pile up for me, and here we go!

The annual TX2K events in Houston is a tradition for myself and Khiem, our photographer. Earliest I can recall going to these events were back in 2002. The series of events happens over the course of 4 days, with each day being a little more different than the previous. Drag, Road course, 60 to 130 to name a few. Of all of the days, there is always one that I look forward to, and thats the Dyno Day and Show N Shine.

Ever seen so much tail?

Event Coverage: TX2K10 Supra Nationals Track Day

Every year, me and Khiem make the trek to the Horsepower holy land called TX2K, which luckily for us, is right here in our own backyard. Houston plays home to this annual event where nuts are flexed by way of dyno numbers, drag and track times. The Toyota Supra, the modern day muscle car of the import world, takes center stage as the rest of the nation looks on to see who’s on top for this year.

Who says Supras are only dyno queens?
