On any given weekend you can find a car meet going on. Any where from ricers to gear heads. Hot rods to imports we all come together for the love of cars. The Ground Hog Gala reminds me of an old Social D song. It has been going on for a couple of years and you can find anything from gassers to rat rods to beauty show queens. You can also bring your chopper or bobber and show it off too! This year I had the pleasure of being invited by my good friend Jay. Jay is a gear head. He has own some of Orlando’s fastest and sickest Nissans, miatas and other beauties. Currently he owns the an LS swapped RX7, a track ready s2000 and this beautiful baby below.

The amount of passion it takes to restore an older vehicle is something I really admire and try to take into account when working on my own vehicle. Some of these machines even though were rusty on the outside had a lot of heart and it showed.

There were live bands, swap meets and a great amount of cars and bikes to keep me entertained. I wish I could have captured more but all I had was my phone and olloclip. Enjoy the set below! See you next year hot rodders!!
