Circuit Soul has been creating a lot of buzz on the west coast. With their RWB build and grand opening last month. I love all their Japanese influenced stickers and shirts. Top notch designs.
This year we decided to stay an entire week at Ocean City. It was well worth it. The extra days were awesome as H20i actually felt like a vacation for once. The house we stayed at sucked though. I swear my stuffed nose was from mold. No big deal, most of the time was spent mobbin up and down the strip, even before the crowds showed up on Thursday. I went through AT LEAST a full tank while on the strip. 500-600kms+ up and down coastal. Got damn.
By the time the weekend rolled around I had managed to pick up a nail on my front left tire. It wasn’t leaking air, so I thought its better if I just leave it alone. Pulling up to the Outkasts meet, it proved otherwise. The nail popped out. Quick call to Dan and he was there with a jack. We did need some spare wood to get the car up though. With the flat tire in hand we went to a local shop to get it patched. These two beauts were outside.
The Wagon GTG was hands down the most subdued meet of the week. It was also made up of about 90% wagons which is nice. Ussually a meet means, 10-15 apt cars then 50 random cars.
Taphouse was bangin all week. Didn’t matter the time or weather. It was packed. Im not even sure whats meets were there. We just showed up.
Governors Club meet. It was held on the morning of the actual show. Tbh, I didn’t even know it was going down, we just stopped at the convention centre because there was a pretty big crowd.
Left overs. Randoms snaps from the week.
As seen by Matt.
Enjoyed this year a lot more and didn’t shoot as much, but still got enough to throw together a little video…hope everyone enjoys.
Disclaimer* Mauncho is drunk as fuck at the beginning of the video. It was taken 10 seconds after changing his clothes on my rear seats. Contemplated burning those seats.
I let my girlfriend take photos at H2Oi. I THINK it was a good idea. On the one hand she caught some very nice candid moments, on the other I had to weed through many many photos of random crap. I do like a lot of these pics though.
Caught me in my mobbin pose.
….Geoffs totally hetero mobbin pose too…
Scraped.Crusaders. and Eurokracy swag. We rep our Quebec friends everywhere.
I think she liked this Mustang.
My face just before I had to change my wheel. I was not amused.
She ended up taking these while I was getting the above done. Not bad
This is Matt’s thing. Every year we set up a few shoots. We managed to shoot 3 Legacys, Dan’s A3, Ashley’s Mini, a B6 A4 and Anthony’s Bug. Anthony’s Bug has gotten enough love here already.
We’ll start with Ashley’s Mini. We first met her and Brian 2 years ago for this shoot. That was her old Mini which met it untimely demise, earlier this year. I like her new one more anyways. It’s been done but the white RS, gold bolt colourway, for me can’t be beat. In my future maybe? On a dark car like this, it’s the perfect combo.
While crusin the strip we realised Roses was going down. We weren’t sure what gtg it was, but we aren’t picky. We just go where the people are lol. There we saw these two Legacy GTs. Why not shoot it with my car? Luckily Matt was down. First time Matt had shot my heap with the new wheels on. I think I like them. Also, I think all three cars have the exact same lip.
For me this is the best part of H20; aside from the fact that there are far too many little get togethers to attend. We arrived early this year (Monday) so the first few days are full of empty parking lots and non-congested streets. It’s kind of nice; it’s easier to shoot at Taphouse, that’s for sure.
I was loving this TT, so simple, so good.
Yo Dan, why you no have bagged Tiggy yet?
Although my B5 looks dumb with the hood up because the grille is attached to it; it does make bumperless look less awkward. Still, Pre X Evo’s do it for me.
Ya, we know, it’s a VW show; and there are a lot of cool VAG cars in attendance. There are a lot of cool non VAG cars too, and we can’t forget them. They; this STI for example, are largely responsible for what inspires me when I change things on my own car.
Don’t ask me why, but this Allroad reminds me of Darth Vader’s TIE Fighter; only white…with copper wheels…
To end off; a few I got when parked on the side streets of the Ocean side around 45th.
Gill wasn’t sure if this was static or bagged…cut.
Someone we know just bought these
There are three parts to H20i. Cruising the strip, the get togethers and the show. These are the GTGs. Each year dozens of GTGs are announced/scheduled online. A few years ago they centered around the Convention Center. Last year they were at either Taphouse or Roses. Unfortunately, it looks like the property owners of the Roses complex are shutting that area down in the future. On to 115th?
We just gravitated to Taphouse. We were never sure what meet was going down, we just knew it was the place to be.
John’s Bagged Merc. His other Merc, a bagged 190E is for sale check out @thebrightlight on Instagram, if you’re interested.
We saw A LOT of lovely Caddys this year. We’re posting a special one later on.
SquuaadTSX. Much was said about this car.
Looney Low, we always post this car.
Damn, B6s got me again.
What’s H2Oi without some Imprezas? lol
