Extreme AutoFest EAF 2012 - San Diego Qualcomm Stadium
Extreme AutoFest (EAF) has been throwing events for more than 10-years and has always been an event rather than a car show. Unlike, other shows that are specifically catered to low riders or fitment based vehicles, EAF has combined the best of both worlds. In short, if you hardly attend car events, EAF is the one to attend.The crew at EAF didn't fall short this year in San Diego as they occupied Qualcomm Stadium and packed the venue with drifting, autocross, low riders, imports, girls, live entertainment and girls.. girls.. oh, girls.In the past, we've had members travel to Hawaii and NorCal for events, but this trip was the furthest we have traveled as a crew. Armed with water, munchies, and our display. Jae, Paul, Mikey, Scott, Jayson, Marissa, Josh, and myself headed to San Diego the afternoon before the event to set up and check into our cozy Best Western.Thanks to our trusty driver (van_dayuum_paul) and our un-trusty navigation system, we had to use 2 systems. We spent most of Saturday afternoon trying to figure out SD's freeway system near the stadium and got lost on several several occasions. Did I mention several, several? Some blame me for not providing the proper directions because of my relationship with Instagram and Facebook, but someone had to update our whereabouts and coordinate our group! :-P After being lost 4000x's, we finally met up with Ashley and Ronnie back at home base and checked into our rooms.Through it all, we spent time quality together and ended up at Slater's 50/50 where we met up with Justin, Michelle, and Eliza. We had some bomb eats with our DaYUUM family. (excuse the blur as our waitress wasn't steady with her hands, obviously)We ended Saturday night with a trip to the liquor store and shared ghost stories, played a little truth or dare, and dared Jae (dayuumjae) to streak Interstate 805, ok, we really didn't tell ghost stories, but what if? Hmm...On Sunday, Amanda and Nilo joined us and the weather was content. We had a nice breeze but the black top, well... it still tends to heat up. Nevertheless the event was as expected. We met a lot of our site supporters, and our own Marissa Hiroko took 3rd place in her first ever bikini contest. She definitely is an industry's favorite.We want to thank the stunning and lovely Ashley Clark and Amanda Kerr for joining us (sorry for the picture quality, somehow we failed on that department for taking pictures of our own family except through our phones :(( ) and we thank the crew at Extreme AutoFest for taking great care of us!It's time to pass the torch to Jae and Scott for the photos.Much Love - DaYUUMDenVideo from our own Mikey Dang.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rttrb7nYXiI&w=540&h=330] Our set up at the day of the show.

Here's some of our coverage of the girls of EAF San Diego. Starting off with our very own, Miss Marissa Hiroko who also won 3rd place at the bikini contest as mentioned earlier by Denny (DayuumDen). Saw miss Raquel Estrella modeling with this Tekken themed Lamborghini under Savini booth. Here we spotted miss Lauren La Carriere while walking around to check up some booths.EAF set up an " Island paradise" themed attire for the model lounge. Spotted miss Leianna Kai first while looking around the lounge. Did you guys also know that she could sing? Well now you know. Who would not recognize the sexy curves of miss Ela Pasion with her bright yellow bikini top. Right next to her was miss Alexis Kobayashi. We also saw miss Sheryll Lynn all dressed up and ready to pose for us.What surprised me the most walking around the lounge was when I saw miss Raichelle Viado. She was creating a crowd right when I saw her. I'll let the pictures explain it all. Then we passed by miss Sandra Wong. Walked the other side of the lounge and I saw miss Veronica Vhynes. To be honest, this was the first time I met her.Then right next to her was miss Mimi Sarmiento. A good follower of us on our FB page. Didn't recognize her at first until she introduced herself. It was nice to finally meet you miss Mimi.Also, right next to her was miss Christine Zegers. Here we have miss Dianna Lushus and miss Kat Gutierrez.Started to walk around again cause the lounge is getting packed and saw miss Siray Kong being mobbed by photographers. Then we saw miss Marie Alvarez working with kapu motor trends booth. Our friends from Geisha with miss Wendy Lopez, Claudia Lopez, Gina sky, and Jenn the backseat love. Here's more of miss Claudia Lopez. I decided to walk back to the lounge to see who else is there and look who I ran into. Miss April Garcia and miss Amy Ames. The gorgeous miss Tanya Love. Looking good as always. Here we have the combo of our good friends miss Kristin Barcelona and miss Chean Labuen.More of miss Kristin BarcelonaMore of miss Chean Labuen.Also in attendance at the lounge was the lovely Miss Jeri Lee and alongside with her was miss Darling Darla.Miss Alexia Cortez was also in attendance.Miss Kay Bae striking a pose for us.
