Who knows if it's true but the driver of this Excursion says that a pack of Lamborghini's racing in the Gumball Rally was to blame for his accident. This shit is a trip.
The Funk Master Flex Custom Car & Bike Show (Anaheim) went down today and our booth showcased 18 of the baddest vehicles ranging from sedans, exotics, lifted trucks up to lowriders and motorcycles. Along with the vehicles, their equally compelling owners were on hand to answer any questions and many were surprised to find out that the cars were owned by "regular" foks just like them.

WE don't sleep and we're hittin' this weekend hard. We've got troops out in full force everywhere from the Gumball all the way to Nightshift in Pomona, Funkmaster Flex tomorrow, the Ruff Ryders event as well as Rock the Bells. Speaking of Rock the Bells, check out Big Herm Dogg (DUB Magazine) showin HH some love and keepin' shit real. Thanks for the flick Jo Jo.
Big ups to Emmo and Ed from Extereme Autofest for showing HH some love at the 2008 Funkmaster Flex Show going down tomorrow in Anaheim. Today was the setup and we got about 90 percent of the booth knocked out so if you're coming through tomorrow then roll by and say w'dup. The Heavy Hitters Magazine booth is at the right hand corner of the main entrance and we're showcasing 14 of the sickest cars you've seen. From a Frieghtliner Super Chassis to Lambos and classics, we've got a lil' something for everyone. On display you'll also see next issues cover car (Slang's CLS63) as well as a few more the cars that you've gotten familiar with including Hip Hop's Lambo Gallardo, Topo's widebody charger and Kennedy's VIP GS3 with a Supra motor.
Topo and I posted up besides a blown up cover of Issue 2. I know I don't speak Hebrew but I'm sure Ralph understands me when I say thanks for getting this done for us. That's some real shit right there and don't worry….there won't be no Ryan type o' shit around here. You da man and I appreciate the love!
At 5 a.m. while most of you were playing Circus Vargus with your sweat pants, the crew at Forgiato Wheels was already hard at work for what I think might be their next ad campaign. Since it wasn't too far away I met up with Topo and the boys to chop it up and here's a few snaps of what went down.
Pablo and Gary from Forgiato Wheels.
The one thing I have to say about Gary is that eventhough I had just met him this morning he's probably the most effective (and most consistent) marketing dudes when it comes to getting his companies products out there. For the last year or so, he's sent out a huge amount of emails but each and everytime they're packed with the necessary information and pictures. Meanwhile, everyone else wants to send me a long ass, fluffed out story with shit images and on the flip side you've got the companies that sit on their ass and never send out shit at all. But that's a whole other story.
f you go and rent a Lamborghini Gallardo, it’s common sense that you take care of it. It’s a supercar worth over 100,000 euros, not your average reasonably priced car. Such wasn’t the case with a group of late 20’s asian men, who attended a wedding with a whole fleet of supercars, rented of course, consisting of 3 Lamborghinis and a Bentley Continental GT. British tabloid The Sun reports that after they arrived at the wedding reception, the group of men went for a drink and started bragging about their rental cars and how one of them took a car to 160 mph. Feeling all brave, they decided to take one of the Lambos to it’s limit and immediately left the reception. What happens when you mix alcohol and a powerful car ? The car was found crashed in a tree, with no trace of the asian men. Witnesses really enjoyed the exotic crash, actually taking bits out of the car or sitting in it.
