My first event at Circuit of The Americas! ImportExpo x World Racing League was a great way to spend a Sunday! Things got a little crowded at times so some angles were limited in an attempt to honor social distancing guidelines; all in all though it was good fun!

Abandoned Acura NSX?

Many many months ago I was filming the Blue Angels + Thunderbirds flyover on top of a parking garage. Just before I reached the top, I came across this very dusty NSX. The car has since moved (purposefully why I released this months after seeing it) but I felt like giving it some love after it had clearly been sitting for awhile.

What would you do if you found an abandoned JDM icon?

Kent Island Meet @ Cult Classic Brewery // JDM Special 🇯🇵

A little showcase from a Kent Island, MD meet held at Cult Classic Brewing Company back in July. It was HOT and the traffic was HORRIBLE. But once I got there I was able to hang out with Dustin from Mischief TV info with some other DMV friends, snag a few beers and just hang out!

Car Cruise to End COVID // Alfa Romeo 4C Ride Along (Feat. Savage Garage)

*Thank you for your patience as I settle in my new location in Austin, TX*
Kicking things back off with the full day of the Car Cruise to End COVID back in June. @Trader_Chris had picked up his Alfa Romeo 4C from over 750 miles away just 24 hours before the cruise. He was generous enough to let me ride along with him, unfortunately we ended up at the beginning of the entire cruise pack and never connected with any of the drivers behind us. To make things worse, we ran into a lot of obstacles along the way that made it pretty difficult to film any highlights of the actual COVID drive.

At the lunch spot, halfway to the final location for the cruise, Chris and I decided to break off and head toward his home in Annapolis, MD. After (what we believed to be) everyone had left, Chris and I left the lunch spot and immediately found ourselves along side the Savage Garage crew.

Once we broke off from Savage Garage in Gaithersburg, MD, we finally washed the 4C when we reached Annapolis to close out our day.

$7800 was raised over the course of the day in support of the American Nurses Association!

Dulles Cars & Coffee CHARITY SPECIAL // Sights & Sounds

After months of planning, Dulles Landing Cars & Coffee this past weekend pulled off its LARGEST SHOW EVER! Eric Jacobs (head coordinator) approached me about this Charity Edition show back in February. I promised him I would do whatever I could to help him cover the event.
I don't think any of us realized how many people would be in attendance. Where the normal lot has been getting full with some overflow parking next door (see previous video coverage on my channel), this show surpassed that attendance by 3x's at least!
I did admittedly get caught up catching up with old friends like RealMCR12 so not everything here was covered, but the memories made from this meet will last a lifetime.
All of this was to help benefit Driven To Cure and Theresa Sandra Jacobs Foundation. If you would like to continue supporting this cause beyond the car show use the links below:

DOUBLE FEATURE - Dulles Landing & Potomac Cars & Coffee - Sights & Sounds // July 12, 2020

A double feature covering both Cars And Coffee Dunkin Donuts Dulles Landing South Riding Va and Potomac Cars & Coffee (STARTS AT 11:28) which won't happen often as the shows aren't quite near each other. Both shows brought out some awesome variety as per usual, Potomac however brought out a very special Ferrari 250GT Lusso with GTO spec parts! Lusso's are said to be some of the most beautiful Ferrari's and this one was kept pretty much original with the exception of the few GTO parts to boost performance.
Another favorite of mine was the Nissan R33 GT-R in Midnight Purple and one of my all time favorite Maserati's the 3500GT. Potomac C&C may be small in numbers, but the content packs a punch.
Stay tuned for next week's Dulles Landing Cars & Coffee as it will be a BIG SPECIAL EVENT!

This afternoons @CarsAndCi**rsAshburn was hot 🔥🥵🔥 in all senses of the term. The show was packed and I’ll have video of that coming later; but one car stuck out from the rest and I bet most didn’t even know it.
This Porsche Sport Classic was sitting in one of the side lots after the main lot was filled. In recent years, examples have sold upwards of $650,000 USD. This car was never officially offered in the United States (this supposedly being 1 of 5 here today) and only 250 examples exist in the world. To most, it looked like any ordinary, grey 997, but @h_hunt got me hip real quick as it was the highlight of his day! (Peep his profile as he’ll have better pictures than me coming soon)
All in all, it was a good day! Stay tuned for more.

Despite how you may ‘feel’, please just wear a mask and take the precautions needed in order keep events like this going. I was really looking forward to covering Katies this morning as the weather was looking great...
Hope we can get the show back on its feet soon.

In the interest of public health, we are erring on the side of caution and to avoid large gathering of people in our community, we will be closing Katie's Cars and Coffee until further notice. There will be no displaying of cars permitted. Thank you for your support!
