Night-Import: Photography by William Lee
During the Puente Hills Mitsubishi meet on Saturday, my friend Jose Romo, EuroTuner star, told me about another meet that was going on in Glendale, which wasn't too far from where I lived. I'm usually updated with all the local meets, but it seems like I missed one because of the hectic week at work. This grand opening event by Showstoppers was suppose to happen last week like the Mitsubishi event, but it got postponed to a week later because of the weather.
To be honest, this was my first time hearing about Showstoppers, so I did some research to find out more about the company.
Showstoppers USA has a long history in the automotive scene, starting since 2002 and still going strong. Almost every aftermarket product can be purchased through their site or locally if you live near by. Their previous store was located in Monrovia, CA, but now relocated to Glendale, CA which is why this event was created.
What's really fun about going to meets is 'not knowing' the turnout. I've been to numerous shows in the past and a few were just horrible in the amount of cars and people. One thing that I learned; do not believe the attendance numbers on facebook event pages and don't 'expect' a good turnout.
This event, however, had a lot going on, which is why Night-Import staffs and I enjoyed it. I Met couple of my friends like Ted, owner of the EK that got featured on OpenCluth, and BigMike, owner of the Prelude, which you'll be seeing on this event coverage.
Parking was not so good, but here are a few photos I took of cars parked on the sides.
California weather is really unexpected. Last week was pouring but this day was hot as hell!
Right in front of the entrance was this RHD Integra repping our supporters Infinit Wheels.
Everything about this car was dam sexy. Unique hood, sexy wheels..too many to list.
Both of these rides were at NISEI Week last year.
Hamburgers, hot dogs, etc.
Here's Big Mike's Prelude.
It already has its fame by being featured on a magazine and numerous sites. By the way, his wheels are for sale.
"The little engine that could ..." You guys could complete the sentence.

One of the craziest (in a good way) 911's I've seen till today. Random Spotlight for this car.
More on this EG at the bottom.
S2k sitting on Enkei RPF1's.
I'm pretty sure those VS-XX faces were gold dipped.
Beat the rareness.
Back with the EG.
Momo steering wheel, Status seats, and the best part, RHD.
Sexiness to the max.
Honda's modified like these are the reasons why I want a Honda.
Norman from AS1 and Big Mike.
People still getting food. Free food is always good.
While I was heading out, I saw Mikey with his newly done xB, which I had to take pics of because what people thought of being impossible became possible on Mikey's ride. Another hint of my new project.
This is an exclusive shot for all of those who were wondering about what was going on with Mikey's xB.
Enjoy the rest of the week and stay healthy!
