Well it was a whirlwind weekend full of Mopar goodness as the Family and I headed out to Irvine, CA for our first Spring Festival of LXs. I’ve been hearing about SF9 for the past few months and John Fortuno and Oriana Mehden encouraged me to head out and shoot the show, boy am I glad that I did!
Over 1000 modern Mopars (300, Magnum, Challenger and Charger) showed up and there was Mopar as far as the eye could see. I met some great people, shot some amazing cars and captured some amazing content for you to enjoy. I ended up with about 2800 shots from the pre-show BBQ the night before the event and the day of the event. Needless to say, I will be busy in Post-Production for a while but will get the shots out as soon as time permits.
If you want to see yours sooner, let me know and I’ll move it to the top of the stack if I shot it!
Rick @ Piccione Performance invited me out to the shop last Thursday to shoot the event that they hosted for the AZ ModRod club. It was a pleasure to meet some of the nice folks that are part of the AZ ModRod club. Great to see owners of American Muscle from competing brands getting together to enjoy each other’s company and admire the hard work that they put into their rides. Thanks to Rick, Tom and Piccione Performance for hosting and thank you to the members who shared their rides.

Another vehicle that was dressed in beautiful bare metal was this monster from Nelson Racing Engines. With over 1500 hours in this hand shaped and widened body, this thing looks amazing. Besides the meticulous metalwork, Nelson dropped in a gnarly powertrain pushing out a mere 2000 HP o.O. The motor is a 9.4 liter Chrysler HEMI that is twin turbocharged, twin intercooled and twin fuel injected. You may say “wha?” about that last part (I know I did), power can be dialed in from 600hp to 2000hp and the computer handles the tune and automatically switches from 90octane to 116octane. There is too much to detail about this beast but it is truly an inspiring ride!
