Let’s keep it coming… I think there will be 5 parts in total if I did my math right and if I edit all the pictures I’ve looked at so far.
Thanks for the shares and feedback last night! It’s been dead as hell around here, so it’s nice to have some good content back up…
I will say though – as I go through the pics, I’m still impressed with how far this car scene has come. I love that people are paying attention to quality parts and making it all work together. The first 2 years of this show – compared to the last 2 years – were mediocre at best. You’d see most cars that were lowered and on wheels, and you’d be lucky to see if they were anything other than Rotas. Now, it’s all out and despite the shit that the economy took over the last year – it seems as though every single one of these car guys must have gotten some huge bonus. It is enlightening. Whether you just saved up your lunch money allowance or you’re busy busting your balls 9-5, you guys helped kill it again this year and I really want that to keep happening.
Ah man, I’m getting teary eyed at how good this is. I’ll keep my blabbering at a minimum and spread it across all my posts. I’m sure most of you just scroll through till you see your car anyway LOL.
Corey’s S2000 up front.
Ryan’s EP3 – the Unicorn. It comes out twice a year and that’s it, I’m sure. The fact that this car is still as mint as the first day I saw it back in 2008 astonishes me. lol
JC’s CT200h. Peep the new TRD sideskirt addition
Punit’s GS450h – yes, he brought both his cars out. I’m digging the new colour of the wheels the more I see it.
Steve’s GTR – he, too also brought both his cars out. MBN, fam… MBN…
Alicia’s bagged Golf on VS-XX’s
The Black Swan!!!!
Over in the 403Media section…
A custom fabricated splitter. A little rough and not sure how it would hold up at high speeds but custom splitters seem to be the new hype lately.
All black Silvia on Work XT7’s… Brings me back to my first set of real wheels.
Nice color on this R32
Benny’s F20-swapped AE86… At least I think it’s still Benny’s… I remember shooting this way back in the day… Correct me if I’m wrong!
Romel’s Celica. God this thing is beautiful.
Over in the Bag Barn area – this is no stranger. Quite a build…
Something different this year – at least I think – was the Import Dolls section. I believe their banner said it was an “All Female International Car Club”. Cool to see they’re doing their own thing. I’d like to see more stuff come out of the group next year for sure.
An Integra from the Import Dolls group
Kia Forte – a different choice for modding, but clean nonetheless.
This Camaro was cool – dumped on the ground. Exactly how I’d do a Camaro if I had one…
Jake’s LS-swapped S14 starting off the Haute AG section. Super clean.
Rad bay too – shaved and repainted. Nicely done.
A bunch of powerhouses next to each other – a Supercharged G35
Snake skin wrapped or dipped grill and piping
LS-swapped GS. LS Swaps everywhere!! Now I want one…
Daniel’s track-prepped M3 – the face of Haute AG with Yokohama-inspired livery.
Back over at the booth – a shot of some of the prizes to be won.
The amazing trophies this year – supplied by Speed Options.
Nick Prah’s FD with absolutely perfect paint. What more to expect from the paint expert, I suppose 🙂
Kaylee’s S14 with a freshly painted hood by Nick.
Landon’s RB 240SX – still one of my favourites.
Forgive me – I don’t know the owner – but a RB 350Z. One of the first I’ve seen and it’s also bad ass as hell. Like the 350Z wasn’t wide enough out back…
Update – the owners name is Brandon and this was also painted and put together by Nick.
Richard’s supercharged Mustang. Another immaculate build that kind of came out of no where a few years ago at Driven.
Giuseppe’s R32 – the new internet sensation it seems… I guess he’s not only just BIGNJPN anymore.
One of the winners at Driven YYC this year was this R32 on RE30’s and a very clean engine bay. Lots of the engine components have a neochrome finish.
Jimmy’s M3 – looking good as usual on diamond dark gunmetal ZE40’s
Another nice sight was this RC-F on TE’s. Not a popular chassis at this time due to the price point… But those that can, do it for the rest of us!
One more shot of Jimmy’s M3
Clean Supra at the VEX booth
The AE86 that was put back to near stock and mint condition. Perfection.
Jimmy’s Datsun 240Z
Track prepped FRS. This one is all out.
Crazy widebody RX-7 fitted with a Voltex wing. This car is beautiful!
Errol’s RSX-S rocking new Rize Japan LED tail lights
The only one in the show that parked backwards. That’s OK – he’s showing off the tail lights. 🙂
I was digging this car – I love the Super Advan Racing three spokes and it fit very well on this RX7. So clean.
Aw man! Part 2 is done already! Part 3 tomorrow!
