H2O International 2016

Photos and words by Melissa Curtis (@missamagnificent)

Ah yes, H2Oi has come and gone yet again. At least this time we didn’t have to deal with a hurricane like last year. As always, we make the best of our time down there. We love Ocean City, Maryland – and we love spending time with our friends and Wheel Lab am in this beautiful setting.

Did you really go to Ocean City if you didn’t go to the Taphouse?

Goodbye S4

Today we said goodbye to our shop S4; it will be going to a good home with @kristin__lena. Goodbyes are always hard, but luckily this is more of a “see you later” type of deal. Kristin is local to us, so keep an eye out for it at car shows. We can’t wait to see what’s next!

But for now, while we figure out the next move, here are some shots of the various stages that this car has gone through.
