On July 13th and 14th, Official Street Whipz held their famous King of the South Weekend. Atlanta only has one automotive filled weekend- it’s always in July and the V-103 Car and Bike Show falls on a Saturday, and on the very next day, Official Street Whipz has their King of the South Show.
For the second year in a row, I do not have any V-103 Car and Bike Show photos to show off. Last year I couldn’t score a media pass in time for the show. This year, they decided not to have the show (hopefully they’re restructuring it). Thankfully it left Official Street Whipz run the weekend. Last year, I had fun at the block party, even though I didn’t know what to expect. Naturally I decided to show up again this year.
It was packed, but it was a good packed, not the type of packed where the fire marshall has to come. It was so packed, it took up the entire shopping center (including the parking lot of Pizza Hut, Zaxby’s, and Wells Fargo), it took up the BP gas station in front of the shopping center, it took up the Chevron gas station across the street, AND the Walgreens diagonal from BP. So yes, it was packed.
The very next day was the actual car show at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, where it’s been faithfully held since 2015. Car enthusiasts got to show off what their cars are made of in three ways- how the car looks, how it performs on the race track, and how it sounds- meaning the audio system.
Like last year, I’ve noticed a lot of vehicles with excellent paint jobs and wraps, a lot of vehicles on Forgiato, Amani Forged, Rucci Forged, Corleone Forged, and Dub Wheels, there were donks, donks, and more donks, plenty of Ang’s family members (Ang is short for Angela, which is the name of my Dodge Charger and by family members, I mean other Dodge Chargers and Challengers), a lot of Box Chevys, a lot of G-Bodies, and one more thing- there were a lot of donks there… in every color.
Despite the heat (shoutout to my BFF- this portable air conditioner), I had a great weekend and of course, I will be back AGAIN next year. Enough talking because I know my photos are far more interesting than what I have to say.
