Bernie's Car Show Coverage: 2016 Streetfest Show

May 25, 2016


Last Sunday, I had the opportunity to go to the 2016 Streetfest Show at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. Part car show and part drag racing, Streetfest provided a great mix of cars. New vs old, car vs truck, Charger vs Camaro, donk vs box, Amani vs Forgiato, Cutless vs Chevelle- there were a lot of combinations that could have easily battled against each other.




I didn't hang around for the racing (I know, I know), but I was able to get some great photos of the cars that were a part of the show.  To see the rest of the photos, check out Bernie's 2016 Streetfest Show gallery.

Bernie's Car Show Coverage: 2016 Soloarte Tattoo and Krazy Vatos Car Show

May 19, 2016



Sunday May 15th, Soloarte Tattoo Studio joined forces with Krazy Vatos Car Club and held their annual car show. As we all know, I enjoy lowriders simply because of the attention of detail when it comes to customizing one. It wasn't simply a lowrider show, all cars were welcomed. So when I found out about the show, I knew I had to go.



I found out about the show at Caffeine and Octane, where some of the members of the Krazy Vatos Car Club passed out flyers for the show as well as entertaining the crowd with some lowriders that they brought with them.



The Soloarte Tattoo and Krazy Vatos Car Show was a great show with great cars and plenty of entertainment- including a car hop that captivated the entire crowd. To see the rest of the photos, check out Bernie's Soloarte Tattoo and Krazy Vatos Car Show gallery.

Bernie's Trip to Old Car City

May 11, 2016


Front of Old Car City
Old Car City is the world largest classic car junkyard... and of all places, it's located about 50 miles north of Atlanta. Located in White, Georgia, visitors of Old Car City can observe and photograph almost 4500 cars while walking 6 miles on 34 acres.

Taste of what you'll see at Old Car City

I found out about Old Car City while I was getting my nails done. The nail salon I go to always plays the evening news, and guess which business had a news segment? You guessed it- Old Car City, where they used the segment as a promo piece to bring more visitors to the museum. Well it worked, because a few days later, I was driving to Old Car City.



Old Car City is overwhelming, but you will get your money's worth. Like I stated before, there's almost 4,500 cars on their lot. However, if you want to be a spectator, you have to follow their rules.



Throughout the many acres of land, they have signs saying that you can't open the doors or the hood, nor can you stand on the cars AND you have to stay on the trail. The reason for the rules is because the cars haven't moved since they were dropped off. Wilderness has taken over the acres and have grown around, on, and through the cars.

Told you a tree grows through the cars.
It's really a fun experience to check out the cars, but it's even more fun to photograph them. People come from all over to photograph the cars. Definitely check it out if you're ever in the Atlanta area. But first, let me give you some tips:

  1. Wear Sneakers

  2. When you do decide to go, go on a day when it's cool outside. I wouldn't recommend going when it's hot.

  3. If you do go when it's hot, wear bug spray.

  4. While you're at it- wear long sleeves and pants. There are THAT many bugs.

  5. Also- don't forget your hat, water, and sunscreen.

  6. Bring cash- Old Car City doesn't take debit/credit cards.

To see the rest of the photos, check out Bernie's Old Car City Gallery, and I'm definitely going back... probably in the fall.

Bernie's Car Show Coverage: Photos from Caffeine and Octane: May 2016

May 4, 2016


 


Hours before the fifth Caffeine and Octane of 2016, severe thunderstorms moved through the Atlanta area. Thankfully the weather cleared and car enthusiasts gathered in the parking lot of Perimeter Mall and experienced another great show. It wasn't as crowded as it normally would be. Some car collectors do hesitate to bring some of their prized possessions out in cloudy weather (which is understandable, especially when there's a chance for rain) and the peak of the show was later than usual.


Caffeine and Octane is getting more and more popular as the months go by. You can't beat it- at what other show will you see a couple of Ford Broncos, a Lamborghini Huracan, Atlanta's beloved vehicle (Chevy Chevelle), Porsche GT3 RS, BMW M5, Mercury Cougar, an orange Mercedes Benz, a Pontiac GTO, and a Ford F350 in which I would need a actual ladder to get into? Feel free to check out the rest of the photos in Bernie's Caffeine and Octane: May 2016 gallery.
