What is the sound of one piston slapping?
What is the sound of one piston slapping?

Car meetings are held all over the place, and probably daily, if you know where to look. I was on my Facebook, scrolling trough people's posts and commenting on something that spiraled horribly out of control. None of my doing, at least, I don't think so. But I digress.

I somehow came across this meet that was being held in my city of Plano, Texas and thought: You know, I always wanted to know how my little action cam would handle a car meet at night. So I rolled out, and when I arrived I noticed a high import to domestic ratio. People that know me (or follow my channel) are aware that I lean heavily towards domestic cars, even though I am an import myself. But, I do enjoy a good looking import, and would not mind to have some of them in my garage.

Since this was my first time at that particular meet I felt out the mood first. If I get bad vibes from the crowd I usually don't even bother to film. It ruins the artistic vibe. But everyone was very open, and I chatted with the owner of the S2000 a good long while. If people are willing to share their story I am more than willing to share my take of the evening with a video.

When I came home I noticed this edit was going to be a lot different from my regular car shows. First it was night (and luckily my Sony Action Cam did a pretty good job for what it is) and second there where a lot of sounds I usually don't have to deal with. Yes ruckus riders... I mean you guys... :P

So, I decided to use music to replace the regular audio, and attempted to sync the action on screen with the tunes. Even though the video is only 2:20 long it took me 5 hours from start to finish. Matching up the clips to the transitions took the longest.

I think I did alright for a first attempt. I'd love to get your opinions. In case you are local and interested in attending, this meet is a weekly meet located at the Park / Preston intersection in front of the Tom Thumb.

When I was leaving one of the attendees told me there was another meet in town. But that is for another time.
