About Divas-N-Rides

I'm a DC based photo enthusiasts who loves cars, trucks, motorcycles and anything with an motor inside. I started this website in 2005 focusing on 2 items I love: beautiful women and automotive/motorcycle culture. It's been a crazy journey over this past decade. I plan to return to what I love this year after a brief hiatus!

It’s been 7 months since I covered an automotive or motorcycle event in 2020. The event I covered last week felt like an entirety. It was a good time I wouldn’t miss for the world. Who would have thought this year was the year where everything we took for granted would vanish without any warning. It also made a lot of us pivot quicker than expected. I spent the time working on either the Divas-N-Rides store, making sales on either on eBay or Mercari. I’m in the process of completing 3 photo galleries with 4 models in the past 3 months.

For those wondering about the radio silence, here’s the lowdown. The events calendar has been changed a few more times with several events pushed back to next year. There are 2 car shows this weekend. I just learned 2 more events had to be canceled due to concerns with the current global pandemic impacting everything and almost everything. At the same time, most of the state of Maryland will be in the Phase 3 re-opening stage. I did a successful photoshoot on Labor Day in Silver Spring courtesy of Peerspace. After that, I booked a photoshoot later this month. I’m also working to get the other 2 feature models pages posted as soon as possible. I also signed up for an upcoming House of Photographer event this Thursday. This will be my latest attempt at maternity photography. I did a photoshoot with a pregnant model this month 2 years ago. The new Galleries will be online before the week is over!

If you’re wondering why there was radio silence with the Daily Drive, Here’s the rundown on what’s been happening. I now have a new daily driver. I lost my previous one back in March. This new car has more room, storage space, and has under 50K in miles. I also have been seeing uptick in sales on my eBay store and Mercari site. In addition, I made updates to the Official Divas-N-Rides store. If you haven’t seen the new designs on sale, now is a great time to take a peak. Recently, I made changes to the events calendar due to some significant changes to the events I was going before the pandemic changed things. It looks like Maryland International Raceway for 2020 is out of the question due to the venue’s guidelines concerning staff and guests’ safety. I still have hope to attend the 2020 Haltech World Cup Finals: Imports Versus Domestics in November.

Happy Tuesday! Welcome to the Daily Drive presented by Tree3 and Auto Parts Toys! I just finished a photoshoot this weekend. I’m working on the photos and future photoshoots in the next month. Here’s a preview of what I will be posting this week. I also have made updates on the events calendar. There’s one event I plan to attend until noted otherwise. I also have made some updates to the original Divas-N-Rides Store. The new designs haven’t been posted elsewhere. Despite posting some on my eBay store, I’m planning to show off those new looks in the next few weeks.

Happy Tuesday! The Daily Drive has a new sponsor. That sponsor is Tree 3. They along with Auto Parts Toys will sponsor this part of the website starting today and going forward. Normally, I would be planning to head to Maryland International Raceway this weekend. However, the Covid-19 crisis has changed those plans. 1st, I have other commitments to fulfill this upcoming weekend and beyond. 2nd, The only event at MIR that looks favorable to attend is the Street Car Takeover in August. I also found a set of wheels soon so I won’t be spending too much on rideshare services. On the flip side, WMATA has it’s own After-Hours Commuter Service Program available. I’m looking into this to save myself from having to scramble to find the fund for a ride! Speaking of Metro, They are adding more buses, trains to the service starting in August. I’ve limited my Metro use to tasks on Taskrabbit and other creative activities. I realize public transit travel is a risky activity. With that out of the way, I’ve also made some sales from my other revenue sources like eBay, Mercari, and other places. Soon, I’ll have more new content to share before the end of the month!

Happy Weekend! I’m in the process of getting a new ride. It’s clear I can’t depend on ride-sharing services to get to and from work on a regular basis without any issues disrupting the routine too much.  I plan to have a functioning ride before next weekend. In the meantime, I’m gonna need to reduce expenses and increase cash coming to avoid further financial problems. I recently added new merchandise created on Printful to my eBay Store and Bonanza Booth. 1st, I don’t have to store any inventory. 2nd, I can add new products without having to buy anything. 3rd, any afford to cover the expense without relying on one funding source is important. I felt it was time to think differently. This isn’t the time to shrink. It’s clear this isn’t a normal summer. Therefore, I’m taking different action steps to resolve those issues. Is anyone interested in a change where they want to bank today?

Good Evening! I just completed my 1st photoshoot since March when the global health crisis landed in America. Those images are now available for viewing. Also, I added a new gallery to the Eye Candy Page. I also have some of the images that are too hot for this website on this link (18+)! I just fixed an issue with my eBay store. I refunded a customer, and I’m still waiting for a customer to complete a purchase they made days ago. In other revenue source news, I made 2 successful sales from my Mercari page! Now, I need to find a new ride. I lost my original ride back in March. I’m using ride-sharing sites to get to work. Right now, I’m adding new items for sale. I’m also making changes to my other funding sources in progress. I also got new Divas-N-Rides merchandise in the pipeline coming soon!

For those wondering where I have been, Here’s the lowdown. I had to reschedule 2 photoshoots due to transportation issues and scheduling conflicts. I had an event rescheduled to September. In the downtime, I made updates to the event calendar. I also had some sales on my other revenue streams like Mercari and eBay. I also added Divas-N-Rides theme merchandise to other sales channels beside Cafe Press and Spread Shirt. I decided it was time to get our gear out there since there needs to be another to earn money from more than one setting. I’m also working to add more funds to financial sites like Aspiration Bank, Beem, Betterment, Stash, etc. In the event it’s safe to attend actual motorsport events in the region, I will have the funds to attend and cover them without any financial stress in the foreseeable future. I’ll have the Queen Helen photo gallery posted this evening!

Good Afternoon or Good Evening wherever you are! Here’s what happened on the website while most of you were away. On Friday, I added a new gallery to the Flashback Friday page. Yesterday, I added a new gallery to the Eye Candy section. I’m in contact with 2 previous artists that I collaborated in the past to set up new galleries next month. I’m working to set up the studio and funds to have them in place for July. I’m also working on adding new streams of income to ensure cash will be available Hopefully, I can post a new car show, motorcycle show, etc. It’s been 5 months since I attended any event. While it sucks that many events I planned for are gone, I made some moves to stay above the fray. It also made me refocus on other things. I also generate income from platforms like Mercari, eBay, Bonanza, and more. I also created new designs for the Divas-N-Rides store and the updated Shopify store! Now, I got to work on the skills I promise myself to learn today. Catch you again next time!

Good Evening, Afternoon, or Morning! If you haven’t been on the website recently, I just added new galleries to the Flashback Friday section and the Eye Candy section. I’m also working to set up more galleries to add until it’s safe to attend events. Here’s the lowdown. My neck of the woods has entered the Phase 2 stage. Prince George’s County started yesterday. Montgomery County will start on the what was supposed opening date of the District. I have seen an increase in the activity on my income source. Meanwhile, there has been more action coming from my other revenue stream than the 1st revenue stream created for this website. Now, I need to get the latest revenue source more exposure to ensure all revenue sources work in step with each other. That will help in getting something for dad on Father’s Day!
