Along with IDRC, DSPORT hosted a car show like last year but with a different title; 'Fancy Fed Car Show'. If you read the first part of this coverage, I've mentioned the insane hot weather and good turnout last year, but it was the opposite for this year's event. The weather was rather chilly and the amount of cars was smaller than expected. It seems as if the high gas prices are keeping show car owners to stay at home and go to meets rather than events, which is respectable in every way. Despite the small turnout, DSPORT did a tremendous job keeping the car show organized and hosting the overall event. Our last coverage will consist of the show cars, vendors, and some Drag racing.
By the way, while I'm in the subject of 'Drag racing', I've noticed all these local meets here in SoCal getting raided by cops because of illegal street racing. To all you immature drivers, instead of challenging others at public roads and acting like a hard ass as if you can burn almost any car, bring your ride to events like this, pay the fee, and challenge others in a legal way. Let the local meets continue and save yourself from getting a ticket. The hosts of a meet can go up to you any time and tell you to leave, but because a meet is usually ran in a privately owned property, they just don't have the right to do so. Once again, please let 'car meets' continue.
Back to the coverage, I started off Part 2 with Raichelle Viado posing in front of the Evo we featured a few weeks ago. More photos will be shown at the bottom.
Rewinding the time, a few vendors came in early to set up their booth.
There's Big Mike and Tony from It's JDM yO!
Displayed Z on Weds Sports in front of Lot USA's booth.

While IDRC was going on, I walked to the entrance area to see which cars came to show.
Even though the turnout was small, the quality of these cars made it up.
Great to see some familiar cars.
By the time I went to take some shots from the Drag Racing, the Car Show prepping was all done. One car that I've never seen before caught my attention, and it was this old gen Civic sitting on BBS RS's. More on this car later on.
