In some situations I can be a very indecisive person; Especially when it comes to food. Although I never thought I would have to make a choice between two awesome car shows on the same day like Nisei Showoff and the “INFMS” show by Hellaflush and Canibeat. With Nisei Showoff being in the middle of downtown LA and INFMS being in Long Beach which is clear on the other side of the county, I was pulling my hair out trying to figure out which one to take on. In the end I decided I would punish myself mentally and physically by taking on both shows! I knew it was crazy but there was no way I could choose one over the other.
Although I was confident that I needed to hit both shows, I was less confident about how I was going to do it. Luckily for me, RJ and Jon Sibal stepped in and made things infinitely more pleasant! I met up with RJ and Jon at Nisei and we hung out with old friends while I took all the shots I could while trying to stay hydrated. Then, we all hopped in “Biggie” AKA RJ’s F10 BMW 750 (with amazing air conditioning!) and rolled to Long Beach for INFMS where we ran into more friends and re-connected with Judson AKA “Drop Jay” of JDM Ego to finish out the day with more awesome cars and ocean breezes to help keep cool.
I refuse to compare one show to the other but I will say they were both awesome and both worth the effort. If you could only choose one I totally understand and either choice would have been a winner, but if you took on both shows like we did then congrats you truly are a car show whore and you have my utmost respect! If you could not make it to either show then I have two galleries to ease your pain. Just hit the links below!

While some of you may have known about this for a while, it has just come to my attention that the Canibeat x Hellaflush “Infamous” car show at the Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA is on the same day (August 11th 2012) as the annual Nisei Week Import Showoff in Little Tokyo near the heart of downtown Los Angeles! How could such a cruel fate befall us?!
How does one begin to choose between a staple of our modern car culture that is Nisei Showoff and possibly one of the greatest collab shows ever in the Canibeat x Hellaflush “Infamous” show?! How was this even allowed to happen? I am not going to start trouble by beginning to speculate how two great events ended up on the same day but I will express how much it sucks to have to make such a decision! Sure, there will probably be a few die-hards that will try to hit up both (I will likely be one of those) but what about all the people who can really only go to one? How do they choose? How will you choose? Seriously, how?
If you live in the So Cal area I want to know which show you are going to go to this Saturday and why. You can make your opinion known in the comments or you can respond to the poll on the MotorworldHype Facebook page.
