Night-Import: Photography and Words by William Lee
First of all, congratulations to Tony and all the staffs from It's JDM yO! on a successful meet last Saturday and making it through that 1 year of activeness, keeping all the automotive enthusiasts entertained with various content. Did that sound too formal? ... blah~ Tony! Congratz yO!!!!!!!
I don't even remember when I first saw Tony, but for sure he was wearing an 'It's JDM yO!' printed t-shirt. You guys have probably seen the t-shirt as well because the huge letters are printed all around the shirt and missing it means it's time for you to take an eye examination.
To be honest, I'm not a really close friend of Tony's. When we do see each other, it's just a "wsup yO!", "how've you been?", "Keep it up!" sort of relationship, but from the first day of seeing this guy till today, he's been working continuously with his site. It's not only automotive events he covers, but also models! Yeap, you heard me right, MODELS! Tony knows the hottest Import models and seeing a few of them at It's JDM yO!'s booth is not a surprise anymore.
The title of the meet might sound as if Tony started his interest in cars last year, but he's been consistently building up relationships with tons of people even before he launched It's JDM yO!. That's why if you are a fan of their site on facebook, you probably saw Super Street, Canibeat, Import Tuner, and various well-known blogs/magazines promoting this meet.
Let's just say It's JDM yO!'s meet was one of my best attended meets of this year!
After leaving Hellaflush VIII, I took some time to grab lunch and arrived at this meet around 12pm. The whole block was in line with sexy cars and I had to park on the next street. If you don't know about It's JDM yO! yet, you now know its popularity.
Hellaflush Z's waiting.
The staffs even had a hard time trying to let cars in. I would say about 60% of the cars came directly after Hellaflush VIII, which is why tons of cars came rolling in at once.
Now to some of the cars that came in early to get a spot.
Platinum VIP just finished this beauty a day before the event. Check out that rear camber. Love it!
Uniquely painted centers on those SSR wheels looked pretty good with the Red color.

Simple, but yet sexy looking Accord.

Most of the rides outside the warehouse came from Hellaflush VIII. What do I mean by warehouse? :D Check out Part 2 later on.
