SOAP BOX

Welcome to the 5&A Dime soap box. 

Sunday Funday or was it Saturday?

Jason Huggins

I normally do these posts about my Sundays off and how I spend them but this past weekend I was lucky enough to get a Saturday off...well sorta. Although I still had to work it wasn't my normal Saturday spent in 5&A Dime. This time Nick and I made our way our way to Vista for HRE's yearly open house event as representatives of 5&A Dime and Motor Union. Now if you have never heard of or been to an HRE event and you love cars then you would love their open house event. These guys are the best of the best when it comes to making wheels. There isn't a detail missed or skipped in the process of making each wheel. Even though some wheels sets can be in excess of $12,000 or more they are worth every penny and the cars they go on deserve them. 

While I was there I took a few pics but if you would like to see more coverage please take the time to check out Nick's post on our Motor Union site. If you guys are not aware, Motor Union is a car event put on every year by 5&A Dime and every year we get a little better at putting it together. We also have a site where we post the latest news about our event as well as other car show coverage and other car shit that we appreciate.

While we were there we got to see our old buddies from Crooks & Castles. It was nice to see Denis, Rob and BJ and it was equally nice to see the cars they pulled up in. Rob just picked up this Aventador and wasted no time putting new HRE 501's on it.

Bumped into my old pal and good buddy Jason Overell from Targa Trophy. Targa just recently did their German car Festival event where Crooks was one of the title sponsors. It looks like Crooks is going to be suppling the event tee for the upcoming Targa Trophy "Euro Vs JDM" event as well.

My buddy and super rad dude Mickey from Accuair was there as well. He brought out his newest project a BMW 328i wagon with a wide body Liberty Walk kit rightfully called "Ric Flare"

Even our buddies Ruxton and Jon from The Condolence Co came out. Looks like Ruxton is bummed he doesn't own a Ferrari with HRE's

Like I said, if you get a chance make you way over to our MOTOR UNION site for more images of the event. Big ups to our homies that helped us with the booth (pizza's on me every time) and big ups to Chris for lending us his car for the booth too!
