My First 2013 Beyond Meet…
Last night was the usual Beyond meet on the upper parkade of Chinook Center and I was bored so I decided to come check it out. It was my first time out in almost a year, and the last time I was out was back when I still had my STI. To be honest, I personally wasn’t a fan of going anymore just because it started to get kind of cliquey. Not that people are trying to do that on purpose or anything, it’s just how meets usually end up being. People gather in circles and it’s tough for newcomers or other people to join in. The turnouts were also pretty small – usually there would be a full line of cars, and now it seems to have doubled!
It was an exceptionally good turnout last night and lots of different varieties of cars. That’s something that I enjoy seeing and I think it’s even more refreshing because it’s been so long since I’ve been to the meets. Met lots of new peeps, saw some others that I haven’t seen in a long time, but overall a pretty good night. I know they hold the super meet every year so I’ll most likely make my way to that one as well since the turnouts are usually pretty big and include a lot of cars you don’t necessarily see all the time.
Moving onto some of the pics that I got that night. I know later on in the night, some other guys showed up but it was pretty dark and I had put my camera away.
Starting off with Rich’s WRX. Not even a week since I shot this and he’s already on different wheels. What a guy.
Ryan O’Hara’s EP3 looking clean as always.
Corey O’Hara’s new project S2000 – you might remember seeing it at the show & shine.
Alex Markovic and his immaculate Integra also showed up last night. Shoot of this coming soon to a lifewithjason near you.
A pretty clean BMW 1-series on WORK M1R’s. A little drop and it’d be set!
Ryan Tsang’s Hyundai Genesis Coupe.
Jackie Tong’s NSX on some good ol’ Advan RS’s – you probably know by now, but if you don’t – he’s the owner of Zero Limit Automotive.
Steve Chan’s Mugen RSX slammed on mag blue TE37′s
A shot of Regina George. Picked the shittiest parking.
A very clean 7-series. All it needed (and it was screaming for it) was air suspension and a better non-BMW park job. It would have easily been the sickest car at the meet last night (for me, anyway) if it was just dumped and sitting on the ground in a proper parking stall. The colour was fantastic as well.
Justin Kan’s dumped and static TSX on Enkei NT03+M’s
Brad Atkin’s K20 EM1 on nicely contrasting orange TE37′s. Brad – give your keys to someone so I can shoot this.
Errol Tan’s Amuse S2000. Errol – take Brad’s keys and get someone to drive your car so I can shoot both of them.
Adrian Perry’s boosted B18 EJ1 on some new shoes! Volk CE28′s. I believe he’s still on the fence about swapping them but I get the feeling it’s going to happen.
Alex’s Integra looking clean as usual. There’s just so much to say about the car… I’ll save it for the shoot.
A GTR that is apparently pushing upwards of 800+ hp? I didn’t confirm it, just what I heard. Still clean though and in great condition.
Ray Dumitrescu’s STI Sedan on WORK M1R’s.
SO CLEAN. Didn’t see the owner though…
Noel Egger’s S14. I think he had an issue with his hood and hasn’t been able to get it fixed yet so he rolls without it. Still looks sick.
Derrek Poyntz’s super clean Integra.
A wild R32 suddenly appeared.
A pretty cool FD RX7. The aero/styling is very 90′s but it still works pretty well today.
A minty convertible S13
Simple Evo X on RPF1′s
John King’s JDM front end conversion CSX. I still love this look.
Kyle Hugo’s EK on Regamasters
A dumped Saturn. This thing is crazy and it might not appeal to everyone, but he did a pretty good job.
Anthony’s special edition Scrion FRS. The “Silver Ignition” colour is probably the nicest colour for the FRS. It’s got a few extra bells and whistles that the regular FRS doesn’t have like the HID headlights and LED DRL’s. Good job Scion.
Derrick Ho’s Integra. It’s shouldn’t be news to any of you anymore. Good to see him out and about.
A rear shot of Errol’s Amuse S2000
JC’s Lexus CT200h – again, clean as always.
A very clean and awesome BMW on Rotiforms. I think upon closer inspection…
It’s an M3 engine swap? Not sure… Feel free to correct me.
A shot of some asses.
A rear shot of the 7-series. So sick. However, I’m sure the 20 minutes of idling was unnecessary…
A shot of Adrian and Alex’s cars together…
Alex’s rear window rollcall… I particularly liked the “noooooo monicaaaa!!!” one. hahahahahaha
Duncan Yu’s boosted civic.
I’ll end the post here with a shot I took in the corner of the Prius and the longest fucking car ever and the rest of the peeps in the background!
