New York International Auto Show 2018 Kicks the Year Into Overdrive

Everyone, it is  Just a few short weeks after the Geneva Motor Show, it is now time for the festivities to reach the Javits Center in the greatest city in the world: New York!

Today, March 28th begins the press days for the show, but the doors open to the public on March 30th and remain open until the show closes on Sunday, April 8th. The official opening day is on March 31st with festivities beginning at 8:30 AM.

The New York International Auto Show has enjoyed a rich history in its long-running tenure, starting way back in the year 1900 at Madison Square Garden, and the show has withstood the test of time, through wars, depression and recessions.

A major anticipated showing this year will be coming from Nissan, who will be showing the Formula E car, which they are dubbing “The Next Generation of Excitement.” Quite a claim to make, but everything announced about it so far seems to back up that statement! The all-electric vehicle has been turning many heads since it was first announced.

Several other notable reveals will be done at this year’s show, including the production version of its RDX concept car, which will feature 2.0-liter turbo power and an optional A-Spec treatment. Acura reps have described the car as the “most extensive Acura redesign in more than a decade,” which has left the automotive community salivating at the promise that statement holds.

The fan favorite Bugatti brand will also be making a much-anticipated appearance at the show, featuring the Chiron Sport on US soil for the first time ever. The Sport edition of the Chron boasts a 1,500 horsepower drivetrain while adding torque-vectoring, stiffer suspension than the regular model, more aero and is 40 pounds lighter.

One of our most unexpected interests at the show this year will be the offerings from Cadillac. The brand will, of course, feature its CT6 V-Sport which will be sure to turn some heads, but our real interest is the XT4 which will finally be unveiled after numerous teases during the Super Bowl and the Oscars. We look forward to featuring this vehicle in the coming days!

Mercedes-Benz also has quite the lineup expected for this year’s show, including the North American debuts of the AMG GT 4-Door CoupeAMG G63 and facelifted C-Class sedan range, but the world first reveals are what have us salivating the most. The brand will be showing off the updated C-Class Coupe and Cabriolet, as well as the new C63 AMG coupe, sedan and cabriolet making their debuts. 

There are many other surprises in store as well for the show, including output from Mazda, Jaguar, Toyota, Volvo and much more! From every preview released, the show looks to be quite the event, as it most assuredly is every year!

Tickets for the event can still be purchased, with adult tickets going for $17 and Child tickets (12 and under, ages 2 and under can enter for free) going for $7, with various package and premium deals available as well. We are very much looking forward to this year’s show, as we do every year! Look forward to our upcoming coverage of the event for more automotive news and highlights!

Tyler the Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw brings out the best flower child vibes

Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival – Day 2 Link in bio

A post shared by Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival (@campfloggnaw) on

Tyler the Creator has started his sixth annual Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival this past weekend and it has brought out the best fashion for the flower child era. The carnival takes at Exposition Park in southern Los Angeles.

Thanks to the two-day events mixed lineup including the likes of, Migos, Lana Del Rey, Kelela, and Roy Ayers, the festival has attracted people from all kinds of spectrums. One thing was for sure, the event had the same style as past years. The event still brought people with bold, bright, and brash clothes and accessories.  Concertgoers were decked out in the usual flower headbands, tie-dye t-shirts and more.

In a recent article on vogue.com they went around the event and interviewed some of the goers on what they thought about the new flower child era. In this article, we took some of the best quotes to show those who are still curious about the new trend and event itself.

Malcolm Squire, fermentation engineering lab tech

“I grew up in Iowa and I’m currently living in South San Francisco. I moved out there about three years ago. I like it up there, it’s a very accepting place to live. Coming out there and seeing people be so open with their daily style—I appreciate all of the diversity. I actually take photos, too. One of the things I like to do on my commute is to take photos with a disposable camera. You just get so many good ideas from seeing how other people dress. I feel like the concept of the flower child has definitely evolved. It’s definitely not what it was back then”.

TyJaye Capell, musician

“Green is definitely one of my favorite colors. Even Tyler said it, this color feels lucky. I feel like a fucking leprechaun when I wear green all the time. Tyler encourages people wearing bright colors, passing around love and joy. Without him, I know most of these kids wouldn’t be out here. There aren’t many artists who promote just being yourself. Not even afraid to be homosexual. Kids have that outlet. Tyler is that person. Through him, they can bond together. Tyler is just as important as Kanye was the generation before”.

Mohammed, student at University of San Francisco

“I’m originally from Saudi Arabia. I go to school at the University of San Francisco. I’ve been in California for about a year. The style in Saudi Arabia is pretty conservative. Usually, boys wear a thobe—a long all-white or all-black dress for boys. Since I’ve been here, I’ve gotten to embrace color in my personal style. I have more freedom. I can wear earrings. They’re not really allowed in Saudi Arabia, but here, I can do me”.
