Night-Import: Photography by Nick Schultz
There were several major events going on last week in California. Most of the people attended WEKFEST and those who didn't want to drive up to NorCal went to San Diego for Extreme Autofest/REMIX Edition Car Show.
On the other hand, there were those who wanted to support a local event in SoCal, called Imports @ UC Irvine. This group of automotive enthusiasts in UCI started this event since 2003 and continued on with great turnouts. I've personally heard about this event last year and was planning to go to this event this year, but because of a sudden decision to attend Extreme Autofest/REMIX Edition car show, I left up the coverage to our photographer Nick Schultz. As always, Nick impresses us with great photos, capturing those moments you don't want to miss at events.
Looking at the photos before I started posting this coverage, I was actually really impressed with the turnout. There were two major events happening on this weekend and with a turnout like this, it shows how strong UCI promotes their events and has a positive reputation, which is probably the reason why the staffs of Imports @ UCI are consistently continuing this event for 8 straight years. Props!
Colorful it is...
and now to the cars
We've seen it on several sites, including ours. One of the sickest stance'd Accords, repping Hoodrats.
Feeling it and love it. Also repping Hoodrats.
All the way from Las Vegas! This ride got featured on Stance:Nation so check it out!
You've seen it on almost every 'fitment' blog out there today. Started from Just Stance and became a internet star!
How often do you see a Civic on Volk TE37 SL's. Exactly, not too many.
Nicely fitted Miata.
Stock height or not, these cars are beauties.
Seems like Greddy brought out some of their project cars.
I've never seen this NSX before.
A smile from the NOS model. Nick not missing those moments.
I see some potential here.
Talk about catching attention.
CR-Z in the house.
This one as well.
Very random, but I think I've seen this guy at my previous church, Rosemead. Hit me up if you're reading this and if it's you!
Clean Clean Clean!
It was raining hard at San Diego, but Irvine had some good weather.
Wait..Drifting..Pretty...so.. Pretty = girls? More to it at the bottom.
I'm always impressed with this Mazda.
Proper camber all around. I'm talking about the car.
Keeping it clean.
Clean + Gangster.
I want to see this GT-R in person.
Wheel colors are win!
Imports @ UCI is opened to all makes and models. Don't worry if you have a Domestic or Euro. Bring it in and have fun!
Those wheels colors are bright.
By the way, Classics are welcomed as well :)
I heard WFC guys rolled deep to this event.
JDM as f***.
Love the color of these Greddy Coilovers.
This photo made me laugh :D
So about that Drifting Pretty thing, if you know about drifting and like drifting..or..actually it doesn't matter. Drift + Girl = Sexy
Props to all these girls.
Here's a little Asian thing going on. You have to expect something like this in UCI because Irvine = tons of Asians.
Ending this coverage with a cool Gundam Vinyl.
Thanks to our photographer Nick Schultz for making it out to this event.
Keep it up Imports @ UCI!
