Back with our coverage for AutoCon!
We received a lot of positive feedback for this event coverage despite some mistakes I made :D
Still in the learning phase and trying to understand more about cars so hope you guys understand.
Anyways, Part 2 will have much more better photos because of some lighting and a different lens. (Thanks Sean from LEDmod.com)

As mentioned previously, there were lines of models from It's JDM yO! and gorgeous Chaba is the one you guys see at the top. There will be more photos of models in this post so keep your eyes opened.

After walking around the whole lot taking photos, my friend and I decided to head upwards to see what was going on. If you guys haven't noticed, in the front of the entrance were the Platinum VIP crew with this sexy looking coilover displayed at the middle. It's the Phantom Cup Kit Suspension. To read more about this system, check out our coverage for Platinum VIP.

First time ever seeing T-Rex's in person. WOW! I would love to have one of these.

IMG_8685

Vroom!!! Perfect machine to have if you're bored or want to grab something to eat near your neighborhood.

Outside of the main event structure were couple of booths and cars like this widebody S13.

I believe this car does not need an introduction. It's been all over the net for quite a long time and was shot by The-Perfect-Exposure. John just came back from Japan from his business trip and was kind enough to drop by AutoCon.

IMG_8709

Right when he arrived, our model of the day, Kat Kimiko, showed up as well.
There will be a separate post on Kat's work on the day of AutoCon so make sure to check back.

It's now time to share some different photos of the same cars that were taken previously.

Five Axis's xB was at the event but did not transform into its DJ booth.

Beautiful Bimmers. Luckily, one of the owners contacted us today for a feature, so we'll be shooting it really soon.

IMG_8806

I still can't believe the Lotus forums banned my ID because of an event promotion :(

IMG_8807

Choose your color and take it to SB Metal Polishing.

IMG_8808

Clean...really clean...

IMG_8809

This tC is from Team Praxis and you won't get to see this car at any Scion shows. I've been to many of them and never seen this one, except for mixed car shows like RPM and NISEI week. Gotta give him props for being unique.

Such a sexy ride on Jlines.

Probably the total cost of all the aftermarket parts in this Bimmer will equal to the value of my car.

It's on a hybrid suspension kit (half coilover & half air). So much to write about this car, but I don't have any info! Talked directly with the owner so hope she contacts us for a feature. Yes, I wrote 'she'.

I'm pretty sure some of you guys look at your favorite cars over and over and don't get tired of it. Once you get to see this car in person, it will be one of them.
