On September 7th, I traveled back to New York to attend DJ Envy and Lincoln Tech’s Drive Your Dreams Car Show.
Just to backtrack a bit, DJ Envy is a New York based DJ who just happens to love cars. Last year, Envy decided to put on his first car show. The honest truth of why I didn’t attend was because it was too close to SEMA. After the success of the show, he stated that he wanted to change the date of the future show to occur closer to his birthday- which is early September. Staying true to his word, the show went on a few days after his birthday at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, New Jersey.
After seeing the photos from last year’s show, I knew I had to go, especially since he moved the date. I’ve listened to Envy for years, so I had an idea of what to expect out of this show. I knew I would see a lot of luxury and exotic cars. I wouldn’t expect anything less.
After walking around the Meadowlands Exposition Center, I noticed something. The room was packed- just enough room for venders, food, the stage, and the red carpeted VIP area (again, I wouldn’t expect anything less from Envy). The vehicles were an eclectic mix- there were luxury, exotic, motorcycles, American muscle, classic, tuner/imports. All of the vehicles had something in common…. they were all vehicles with high quality customizations. I didn’t see any chipped paint, scuffed wheels, snagged wrap, torn seats, and/or rust. I almost shed a tear.
Aside of seeing the majority of Envy’s personal car collection, I got to see personal cars of the one and only CC Sabathia of the New York Yankees (I had to list him first. Go Yankees), Michael Strahan, 50 Cent, Styles P of the LOX, Offset of the Migos, Pusha T, and then there’s this enthusiast…
Curren$y brought 3 cars from New Orleans to the show. I kept saying personal because these are actually their cars. I’ve been to car shows where they put signage of celebrities names next to some random cars. All in all, I had no reason to complain. But I left before it got too crowded. Bernie doesn’t do crowded indoor spaces.
Enough talking because I know you rather see some photos.
