"Darkness"- Ahobbs Racing's 9 Second Civic
Remember that car feature mentioned in the last post? Well, AutoLifeTV wasn't joking. We road the Greyhound of the Sky, aka South West Airlines, from Cali to Austin, TX. A city known for great music and a cool vibe. Unfortunately when we landed and were able to stretch the old legs, the only thing in sight was heavy rain, which is not good for camera gear (we hope you know). That didn't stop A.Hobbs and I from sitting up like a couple of little girls talking about car stuff, going on an emergency call (Hobbs is a Fireman), and me eventually getting picked up by David Nguyen who came out to chill and attend WekFest TX with his turbocharged H22 powered EK Hatchback (it's in the WekFest video). David had a fancy hotel for us to crash in and DAMN it nice to finally go to sleep.
Saturday brought even more rain, but there was no way to go back to Cali without an interview and footage of the car. So we "squared off" with the storm and said "F it, let's go for it". After getting stuck in the mud in Ahobbs Dodge Diesel for over an hour, our equipment getting soaked, fighting crazy ass gnats flying around all over the place, we ended the night driving to freak'n San Antonio to get a damn trailer so Ahobbs could take his car to WekFest, TX the following day. Oh, the reason we got stuck in the mud in the first place was because we needed to get Ahobbs' enclosed trailer to deliver the race car to the car show. It was a really fun night because I got to buy all kinds of crap I didn't need at this HUGE gas station called Buc-ee's, the "mini mart" was the size of a damn supermarket! I also go to eat at "What A Burger" for the first time in my life, the folks over in Texas kept talking about this place called "waterburger", come to find out it was "WHAT-A-BURGER", haha! It didn't give us the runs, so that was a plus.
Whatever the case, the trip will be one never forgotten. We did our best with the shoot, Ahobbs won 1st place best of show at WekFest TX. 2012, AutoLifeTV got to judge another event (no we didn't have the Honda Class, no conspiracy trophy giving crap here!), and we made it home safe to put together this video. Please take a moment to share it or embed it, hell maybe even drop us tip in our "tip jar". Enjoy!
