[COVERAGE] 36th Progresssive New York International Motorcycle Show

November 15th, 2016 by Elusive Media

Progressive New York International Motorcycle Show brings you the latest motorcycles and dozens of custom bikes drool over. As a fellow rider, I look forward to checking out the latest models all gathered under one famous glass building each year, the Javits Center. Besides the latest motorcycles, a long line of vendors from clothes, helmets, cleaners, custom ear plugs, you name it…it’s all here! They even had a jaw-dropping stunt show, where it looked like they were feet from hitting the ceiling of the building. Typically its cold in December, so if you can’t be on two wheels, why not enjoy checking out some in doors? Winter is just getting started!

[COVERAGE] Tuner Evolution – Philadelphia

August 10th, 2015 by Elusive Media

Tuner Evolution has always been one of those shows we all count down the days for, why? We know it will be well organized, plenty of entertainment, vendors we are interested in, beautiful ladies in the model lounge, and only the best cars make the cut. This year Tuner Evolution invited back the Drift RC Comp/Demo along with the popular Breakdance Comp/Demo. The main stage also had live music and DJs throughout the day, until the Bikini Contest and Awards finish off the night. Because the show attracts such a wide audience of enthusiasts, the show also expanded into another section of the Expo Center, which allowed more car builders to show off and unveil their builds. We also had fire alarm go off which sent us all outside for about an hour. While this was a minor inconvenience, we all just continued to chat with our friends before getting the all clear to reenter the building. The show is not only organized car enthusiasts but the staff live the lifestyle every day. They know what their fans what to see and for almost 10 years, i have left the show disappointed. Thanks to the Tuner Evo Staff for another successful year that we will all remember!

[COVERAGE] Carlisle Performance & Style ’15

July 31st, 2015 by Elusive Media

Carlisle Performance & Style returns after a 14 month break. The show has always been on mother’s day weekend, but with the absents of Bike Fest, Performance & Style had an easy spot in July to fill it in. Plus over the past few year, having P&S in early May, weather was always questionable; with the last few years cold and rainy. While we didn’t have an rain free weekend, Saturday did have a heavy down pour that lasted about 60 minutes. The rain did give a nice relief from the heat, as it was in the 90s. Performance & Style changed the way the exhaust competition worked this year. Instead of every other show I know, the car sits in place and revs, while this event had the driver drive off from a standstill. While I think it worked pretty well, they could of used a bit more room to get the rpm’s higher in 2nd gear before breaking to turn around. Look forward to see how they modify this next year. As past years, burnout is the crowd pleaser and they seemed to have a record amount of entries of fans that wanted to abuse their car for the title. Here’s a first after all the years, a surprise proposal. The first burnout contestant and the announcer had an “issue” with the insurance papework, and in the middle of getting it all sorted out, the guy gets on one knee in front of the whole grandstand, and asks his girlfriend, “Will you marry me”? …. Well done! And Congrats to both!! They also had 2 round of the beauty contest along with NICOFest drifting on the auto-x all day long. P&S also has a strong showing of car clubs, so between all that, you had your weekend full!!

[COVERAGE] Tuner Evolution

August 7th, 2014 by Elusive Media

Tuner Evolution returns for a second year to its new location just north of downtown Philadelphia. The Tuner Evolution team kept what was already working and brought back Break Dancing(Hit the Breaks”, a 2v2 dance battle by UDEF) and Bikini completion along with the hottest cars in the east coast. The always popular model lounge also returns with top and “up and coming” models from around the nation. Tho this show may have started out as an East Coast show, with its new location it has gained in popularly and you will see many cars that drove from afar. I spoke with one club from Chicago and they pick one show out east(per year) to attend and Tuner Evolution was their top pick. Tuner Evolution also had amazing(seriously) raffle prizes, one of them being a PS4 and a large 46″+ LCD TV…lets hope the winner didn’t come in a convertible! Vendors were also scattered around the expo center, like Tragic Genius or Nostalgic Grains. Some vendors were there to promote other car events, like the Gumball Meet that takes place at Lime Rock at the end of the month. This car show bring more than just cars and that’s why we all keep coming back each year! If you’ve missed the last 8yrs of the show, well… always next year!

[COVERAGE] Tuner Evolution

August 5th, 2013 by Elusive Media

Previously in York, PA, Tuner Evolution grew to the point where it needed to find a new location and the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center was it. With more room and all in doors, weather would not be a factor. Besides all the great vendors, cars, and model lounge to keep ya busy for hours on end, Tuner Evolution bring something different than any other show; AM Flatland Circuit BMX Competition along with a Breakdance 1v1 Dance Battle competition. TJIN Edition Road Sideshow was also in attendance showing off their recent builds, a Chevy Camaro and a Toyota Tocoma. If that wasn’t enough, Driftsylvania RC Drift demo and competition and the popular bikini contest with a $500 prize finished off the night at the event! Hats off to everyone that showed up and made this show possible, amazing time and way to step it up from years past.

Enjoy the photos!

[COVERAGE] BimmerFest East

July 22nd, 2013 by Elusive Media

It’s the 3rd year running on the East Coast, and with a larger crowd than previous years, it shows that BimmerFest is here to stay! But to be honest, I wasn’t sure of how the turnout would be. There was a 60% chance of heavy thunderstorms from NYC to Baltimore. We’ve all been there, thinking it was going to pour, not showing up and find out it was a clear sunny day. But seeing how many caravan’s were be organized, this event was going to be good either way. And thankfully the thunderstorms were no where to be seen!
Took keep your mind off the heat and keep the crowd entertained, Bimmerworld had a car unveil midday, while Miss MagnaFlow (Amanda Landry) fans could meet and get her autograph throughout the day. A BMW tattoo contest, plenty of giveaways from the many vendors, and of course the awards! Props to everyone that made this event great(Tuner Motorsports was the main sponsor) and the guy that won for highest mileage BMW at 518k miles! wow! C-ya next year BimmerFest! Lets hope its a bit cooler, at least less than 100F!

[COVERAGE] Carlisle Performance & Style ’13

May 20th, 2013 by Elusive Media

Performance and Style never fails with a vast variety of cars, vendors, and contests throughout the entire weekend. P&S kicked off the weekend with a late afternoon cruise-in and the recently popular “Limbo” style contest. Even with a chance of rain for Friday night into saturday, the cars kept rolling in. Auto-X and drifting took place through the day, as showers made the track a bit more of a challenge. Ms. Carlisle P&S gets a refresh this year, as they broke the contest into 2 parts; feedback from participants and spectators all agreed it was a great change. Midday the sun breaks from the clouds, which was perfect timing as the 2nd park of Ms. Carlisle starts and shortly after the popular burnout competition, which had some hilarious and outstanding cars participating. Annie Costello takes the crown for Ms. Carlisle while Chris Taber in his ’77 Chevy Camaro. For all the winners, check out carlisleevents.com.

Enjoy the photos!
