This past Sunday July the 9th ILDS and its staff invaded Ybor City with their 2017 Summer Vibes Event. In the 17 years I have been in this industry, attending events from coast to coast. Summer Vibes managed to climb to the top of my list of MUST ATTEND events. Everything about this event was a win to me, from set up to the end it was a great event.
After 4 long months of anticipation, the wait is finally over. The famous SoCal Eibach meet that has brought Honda/Acura enthusiasts together for well over a decade has made it to Florida….
Quality builds like these made the meet an outstanding meet attend.
Simply Clean happened a few weekends ago and I’m just now posting this up. Better late than never right? This was my first year attending Simply Clean and it was just as I was told it was going to be. Fun and clean cars everywhere! I seriously had a blast that weekend. The event is held at a venue with a hotel on sight, so everyone was prettty much just partying the whole time cause they didn’t have to drive anywhere haha. If you have never gone to a Simply Clean event, then I highly recommend it. We will definitely be attending next years event. The day was your typical sunny Florida weather, with great cars added to the mix. I hope you guys enjoy the photos and make sure to follow us on instagram @iStayclean_ for more photos to be posted up from the Simply Coverage.
This Bmw M3 was the first to catch my attention. I was loving the color and the nice wheel fitmen of 3 piece OZ racing wheels.
Hey everyone! Running pretty late posting up this coverage and I still have plenty of other photos to still finish up editing for other coverage that was done recently as well. So expect to see more updates to the website and some new full features of cars coming soon as well.
HondaFest was their first time appearance here in Florida and they did a pretty good job in my opinion. The Owner David Medina isn’t too familiar with the area, so it took him some time to locate a good venue to host HondaFest. The weather was great, and so was the enviroment as well. Everyone seemed to be having a great time. Which is a great sign for HondaFest. We hope to see them revisit Florida next year.
Here we have Honda Accord with a VIP theme going through out the whole car.
Are you that true Enthusiast that likes anything and everything with wheels and a motor? If yes than Coffee N’ Cars is the meet to attend no matter where you live. Each and every one of these meets we have attended have always been a great turn out, very mature and very well put together. Sadly I was not able to stay for the full event but managed to get pictures of a few cars that showed up.

Greetings Everyone! I’m Excited to finally do my first post of the year for the site. Being in the Midwest, my traveling slows down and i don’t have a lot of content to show you. Spring time is the beginning of the season for car events and for me the most anticipated is Import Alliance Spring Meet. It the first major event of the year and showcases some of the newest builds coming out. Every year it seems to continue to grow more. This year was no exception. More than 10,000 people showed up for this event. I think what makes the Import Alliance such a different event from the others is that its focus is more than just the cars. It’s about the culture. I’ve met so many great people over the years there and continued to make more friendships. I don’t think i can say that about every event. Don and the rest of the staff at IA do a wonderful job running the event and i thank them for all their hard work. I came into Atlanta on friday night and picked up a few friends at the airport and we headed to the hotel where the “core” IA guys were at. Every year we stay at the same place and you can say we have more than a good time haha… Hope you guys enjoy the coverage and can’t wait to bring you guys more throughout the year.

Another successful event on the books for us at iStayclean.com, this time along side AGN Motorsports, Estilos 2 Barber shop & L&D Graphics out of Killeen, TX. This was an event thrown together about a month ago and thanks to everyone from the AGN staff, participants & everyone else that showed up it ended up being a great first event for AGN and another for us at iStayclean.com
Huge thanks to Eric Tirado, owner of AGN for allowing us the opportunity of teaming up and letting us promote the event. Huge thanks to Danny Rios at L&D Graphics for the sponsorship, work on the staff shirts & helping all throughout the event. Same goes to Jesse Encarnacion over @ Estilos 2 Barber shop for teaming up and helping out. You guys give a new meaning to teamwork and it showed at this weekends event…
Lets get on with the pictures:

A lot has been going on the last 2 months here at iStayclean. I recently made the move from Connecticut to Florida 3 months ago and have been settling in my new surrounding area for the time being. On behalf of iStayclean we would like to apologize for the lack of content lately. Rest assure that this is about to change and you will see more features and content being posted up.
Since I’ve never really experienced the car community in Florida other than doing our own event. I decided to attend V2 Lab’s Mystery Meet for the first time. Our friends at Skunk2/Grams Performance/Kraftwerks had their own Vending Booth at the event, so we decided to join them as well.
I attended the event with an open mindset not knowing what to expect. I had no clue the amount of people that were planning to attend V2 Lab’s Mystery Meet. When we arrived the entrance at about 5am there were cars lined up so far back that they flooded out onto the main road creating a crazy amount of traffic. Once we made it in, we all settled in and unloaded the SquadronOne cars that attended and parked them around the Skunk2/Grams Performance booth, we relaxed and caught up with some old friends and new ones. Once the sun came out I decided to do my walk around and see what cars caught my eye that were present.
Here we have Matt Foxx of SquadronOne’s all motor K series hatch. Expect a full feature coming soon of this build and some back story about the man behind it as well.
Ceejay Mendez of SquadronOne just recently hit a new Personal best at the track running a 9.5! Who said you a Racecar couldn’t look super clean as well?!
Greetings Everyone! Hope all you are well! Summer is coming to an end, and soon it will be time for many cars to rest for the winter and receive new goods to gear up for the 2016 season. One of the final events to wrap up the summer on the east coast is Wekfest NJ. This was my first trip to a Wekfest event since 2012, and my first trip out east, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’d heard so much about the east over the years, but really hadn’t had the chance to see it for myself. I must say, it did not disappoint. I’ve had the privilege of traveling to so many great events this year, but of all my stops this was my favorite. Aside from the event, everything about the whole trip was great. The great food, the people I met, and the awesome sites to see in NYC made for an overall great experience. I plan to attend Wekfest LA next year to really give my perspective of the differences between the east and west. I can say though, judging from the last time I was out west, the east can hold its own. I think there is still some room for growth out east, but it definitely surprised me! I hope you guys enjoy the coverage I brought to you, and as always thank you again to Hector for having me! Also big thanks to Junior and the rest of the Wekfest staff for hosting such a great event… Now Enjoy! -Fredo

Import Alliance…… A household name in the Import Community. One of the largest events in the country and definitely the largest in the Midwest. It brings in people from all over even as far as Canada to the event . I’ve been going to IA for quite sometime now and always enjoy it. The cars, The People, and The Atmosphere really is what makes the event great. Coming from someone who has traveled to many events. If you haven’t gone to an Import Alliance even before… You need to try to make it once. Summer 2015 was a great event as always. Although it was the hottest one in the history of IA. It didn’t stop the fun at all.

Thank you to Hector and Merv for the opportunity to work with a great team and I hope we have more opportunities to this in the future……… Now Lets get to the coverage! Continue reading
