26 Sep Friday Night Lights, September 2011
This past week, Fluid grabbed up a couple cars on the premises and headed out to JDM Chicago’s Friday Night Lights car meet.
Just like every Friday, the end hours of the day were brimming with anticipation. This week, it wasn’t just the anticipation of the weekend, but also the anticipation of Friday Night Lights. With over 600 people attending on Facebook, we knew it was going to be fun, but it was also a chance to get some serious exposure. With the M3 and Genesis coming later, we rounded up Master Kim’s Viper, M. Bfurroughs’ E36, the RBM x FMU CLK63 Black Series, and Ashley’s E90 335i to prepare for departure. We were also joined by a few members of JDM Chicago, not all of whom will be featured in today’s photos (Sorry guys! Some photos came out as absolute garbage). After we hit the highway, your fearless photog stuck his torso out of the E36 and proceeded to snap a few rolling shots.
Thankfully, traffic was light and Friday Night Lights was not yet packed to the brim, so we managed to find parking pretty easily, in enough spaces to accomodate our cars and those of our friends from JDMC, as well as some extra space for the late arrivals from FMU — hey, we still had to work.
Nighttime shots were marred by inconsistent bright lighting and random people walking around, so what follows is the best we could scrounge from the couple hundred shots we took. Sorry if we missed yours, but this definitely won’t be our last Friday Night Lights. Everybody was cool and had a good time, so we can’t wait to hit up the 2012 round of FNLs.
A big shout-out to everybody that came with us, and everybody that stopped by our collection of cars during the course of the evening. We can’t wait to see you out on the road! And for everybody who hasn’t been to Friday Night Lights yet, you should check it out.
