World of Wheels 2013

After I finished working on the front suspension sensors, I ended up meeting with JC, Punit and Prashant to head over to World of Wheels to check out some cars. I never really went to WoW because I always felt it wasn’t really my niche but I thought I’d tag along this year and see what was going on. All these car shows coming up is really making most of us anxious for summer to come. Even the lot had some summer cars that were out and we’re all still rolling around on winters in dirty cars haha.

Anyways – here’s the adventure:

On my way to JC’s. All I need is my eGO-C, phone and water. I also tried out the cooled seats because it was super nice out today. All I’m sayin’ is girls with skirts would love this car in the summer.

JC handed the keys over to Prashant and Punit so he could ride in the LS. People always jump to get shotgun but in reality – the best seats are in the back. So that’s where JC sat… I wish I could sit back there sometimes but I also love driving it too much haha

Crazy cars in the lot…

This beast. For sale for $200,000. WTF! Three doors and everyone. SO gangster though.

The rest of the pics are from the show. I won’t comment on them because I honestly just don’t know much about them. This is definitely the show where you see attention to detail and just perfect paint jobs and everything else in between. Definitely different from all the import shows haha

VEX’s booth was the one I was familiar with haha. Supra on Meisters and the Alpha 9 GTR – holds the record for the fastest GTR in Alberta, I believe.

J swap EF. The swap is pretty much done, but it doesn’t run or hasn’t run since they put the engine in…

NSX – good shit but it hasn’t changed in over 4 years as far as I can remember.

The Miata that I’ve been seeing all over Instagram from Shane. Done just in time for WoW – new paint and custom bodywork. Legit.

Awesome booth display. Huge life size model box, paints, lacquers and twist-off pieces you can see off to the right.

This thing was crazy long. Barely got it in the shot. Check out that wing – they dubbed it the “Jason Hoang wing”. Fitting, if I do say so myself.
