I’ve been trying to get to VIPStyleCars.com related meets within drivable distances and this year’s 2010 SEMA VIP Meet was worth the trip. I have to thank Roy, Sean, and Neek for putting this meet together in Vegas during SEMA week. As if there isn’t anything to do in Vegas during SEMA week, they decided to put together a meet for us VIP Car enthusiasts. First we were going to meet at a starting location. I was running late since I arrived at 3PM after a 10 hour drive and I took a nap. Luckily, I wasn’t too late and I was able to take some shots of the cars that were there. After spending an hour at this spot, we were then going to proceed to cruise around the strip. The cruise would then end up at a spot just off the strip where a food truck named Fukuburger (www.fukuburger.com) was. The end spot was insane. I got there before the cruise did and it was already being broken up by the cops. There was an insane amount of people. Not all VIP related cars, but I understand that Thursday nights are pretty popular there already. I barely got to park my car before we decided to move on to ANOTHER spot. I didn’t get to take any pics at the Fukuburger spot, I wish I did but I never really got a chance to settle in. Not too far away was our final destination, a parking lot which was situated underground. Our good friend Mark from Fatlace felt like this spot reminded him of the scene in the parking garage from Tokyo Drift. He then went on a mission to find the same song being played during that scene by the Teriyaki Boyz. THANKFULLY no one stepped to admit that they had the song. I can honestly say, that part of the night was hilarious.
2 people showed me just how much this is important to them. Once again Brokey33 came thru again. Made the 4 hour trek from Cali to be at this meet. This time, the car was lower than when I last saw it. I thought he couldn’t get any lower, but I guess I was wrong! To top it all off, he was there with a tire that was leaking. He had to stop often to fill it up. That’s dedication. Much respect Josh! Charles also was having issues with his tires. It kept coming off the bead on his rear wheels. When it happened, he didn’t bother pulling over right away, he made sure he made it to the final spot. Thankfully he brought a spare to to rock, but still, I know how it feels when a tire comes off the bead. It’s not fun and its annoying as all hell.
I got a chance to meet a lot of our members face to face. I am thankful for all of you. I can’t stress it enough, everytime I get a chance to meet members of VSC and chat with them I get even more motivated to keep VSC moving. All the work we put into VSC makes it all worth it when its appreciated by our members. Thank you so much.
This is only the beginning of my road trip. I am sitting in my suite here in Vegas just going over the past few days. I think I should of planned to actually attend SEMA itself for more than a day. See you guys next year!
