So Kwik Serv #2 has come and gone and if you missed out, well... let's just say you missed out on one hell of a night. It was all of the vibes you'd want in a modern car gathering but it was like how it was before social media was around. No one out there trying to do the most and pull attention from the next guy. It was just the most excellent gathering of enthusiasts and I am proud to have co-hosted this event with my brothers Tony and VJ.

We ended up doing a drop for Tony's BMW Turbo 2002 and did a handful of prints with signatures on them. This is us in the backroom getting the work done, just like any old guys would do it lol. The drop was a great way to tie everything together.


Earlier in the day, a handful of us went up the canyons for some mid day action. Buddy Allan brought out his 7.1 RS and Scud, which I dubbed Black Sheeps and was a nice sight at the KS meet.

Since it was a weekday, people started to trickle in after work and the gas station started to fill up at a nice pace. Many of the passerby's were enjoying the car vibes while sitting at the red light on Grand Ave.

Since I spent most of the time hosting, I wasn't able to shoot freely so we jump straight into the evening where the lot was full with lots of people enjoying the vibes at a gas station. The best part was, we had a lot full of enthusiasts with their enthusiast cars, it was a beautiful thing.

Had a nice gathering of 90s Honda owners come out and show off their EM1's including my buddy Randy who goes by @22yrsl8 on Instagram in his Black Si.

At the end of the year, we finally have reasonable gas prices again but not after months and months of ass beating prices going over the $7 mark in many LA areas.

The Porsche boys came in hot and a wonderful selection of 964s, GT3s of all generations came to hang out. Our buddy Ben Lau just picked up a beautiful 1993 Grand Prix White C2 previously owned by our buddy Allan in Idaho. Can't wait to see what Ben does with it.

The homie Michael Mao brought out his NSX which has gone through many upgrades and changes in the past 20 years. Always finding ways to stay ahead of the style curve

TE37 were plentiful on the cars at the meet but the one with the special touch came from Bill Holden with a custom set on his Ferrari 458.

Thomas brought out his recently finished clown shoe where he did all of the work to bring it up to speed. Beautifully finished in Khaki green and fitted amazingly on a set of 3 piece BBS LM's.

Even by closing time, at 9pm the crowds were still plentiful and hanging around hoping the night wouldn't end. I totally understand the feeling but also most of the people were starving and this is where we end it with this group photo.

Lots of conversations, laughter and hopefully new connections to help everyone make new memories and adventures.

Appreciate everyone for coming out and making the event what it was. Stay blessed everyone and happy new year 2024!
