ENTER THE MATRIX!
(Actual Lincoln used in the movie “THE MATRIX” by: Good Guys)
Man where do I start with this one…
WEK’FEST SF 2010 show weekend was probably one of my highlighted expirences of 2010 by far!
(Well other than my very own Birthday that is…)
Good to share a great experience and weekend with my very own little Korean brother (Dongseng) Mike Yanase helping me out with Richard Carino’s TOP SECRET Toyota Supra for this event.
Unfortunately, Richard Carino’s TOP SECRET Version 2 Toyota Supra was not fully ready in time to attend this show.
I can’t even remember how many times the stupid red top Optima battery died on us but overall it held up like a champion…considering how much voltage and battery power the crazy Supra sucks up during start up -_-”
Again being able to drive Richard Carino’s TOP SECRET Toyota Supra was definitely a fulfilling experience to be remembered for this trip.
I am not going into posting pictures of this event for there is a gazillion websites that has event coverages from this show.
But I will however post this video created by Studio Mountain from the event.
Enjoy, especially for those of you that were not able to make it=FAIL!
Such a well produced video with music and editing!

WEK’FEST SHOW RECAP:
This was by far one of the best shows I have ever attended period. The guys from Wek’Sos really took their time to organize and plan a great event!
I was blown away to see how many people attended this show on both registered cars + spectators. I clearly remember hearing people saying how they have waited over 2-3 hours alone just to enter the show due to the line being out both 2 level parking garages out to the streets of J-Town in SF.
Top favorite cars @ the show from PLATINUM VIP
It was great seeing familiar faces, yet new ones from this show:
Club Lexus Crew: Glen/Lloyd/Anna/Doug/Ryan
Sonic Motor Sports: Darwin/SF Krew
Good Guys: Solomon
Work Wheels: Logan
Stance Works: Ben
Wek’Fest Staff: JR/Aaron
sorry if I forgot some names.
Most importantly, I was really surprised to even have my very own http://www.itzjOw3.com Phen Club website/blog brought up as well!
(TRUE PHEN CLUB MEMBERS DO EXIST…)
Again, this show was off the hook to the point where I could not even walk around without hitting or bumping into someone’s shoulders.
This video says it ALL:
In the end, Richard Carino’s TOP SECRET Toyota Supra ended up taking 2 awards of (Best of Show Toyota + Best Engine Bay).
“In all due respect, I strongly believe this show was not about competition nor will it ever be in my eyes…It was more of a gathering of a group of respectful car enthusiasts who shares the same passion of building car”- itzjOw3.com
I will definitely be attending this show every year as long as it goes on, and hopefully will get the chance to bring out both my project cars (Lexus IS00 + Nissan 240sx S14). WEK’FEST 2011 HERE WE COME!!
Lastly BIG UPS to my cousin, big brother, aka family member SOLOMON LEE (S2L) for inviting me to this event!
Hopefully I get to see you sooner than we think eh eh eh *wink wink wink* yeaaaaaa and please….
