July 16th 2011 was the fourth time that I attended the V-103 Car and Bike Show, only this time, I couldn’t stay for the entire show. I wouldn’t be the best person to ask about who performed, who was suppose to be there, etc. What I can tell you is about the cars.
Within the few hours I was there, I was pleased with the cars that showed up. In past years, I’ve been hard on how I critique this show because there were less cars and more venders that has nothing to do with the automotive field. Yes, they’re trying to appeal to everyone, but at the same token, it’s a car show. Getting a $50 weave has nothing to do with cars, but of course, the majority of the attendees only came to see who was going to grace the stage.
And then there’s me, who only came for the cars…
The person with the biggest presence a.k.a. he brought the most cars: Akon. Here’s his Lamborghini, the same one you can catch at QT gas station in Atlanta around the corner from my house every so often. (The things I notice while pumping gas)
I spoke to the owner of this car and he told me how he builds and customize cars for the love of it, he doesn’t do it to compete. He picks and chooses his shows that he attends, which means you’ll only catch him at this show and certain shows in Miami. And his car is dedicated to the legends of music.
And as we all know, a car show isn’t a car show without…
and his prized possession (other than family and Block Entertainment): His Donkasaurus.
This year had a different selection of cars compared to last year, but it wasn’t a bad show. I’ll be back next year.
