Can't believe a month passed after the first Sideway Sundays. The weather was gorgeous and the whole event was much organized despite the few changes. To bring you guys an even better coverage, most of the photos were posted on our supporting site OpenClutch, which will be posted in a week or so.
Personally, I was expecting a huge turnout and was keeping my hopes up. Although our site was in charge of media, we were monitoring every promoted forum and facebook, Compared to other car shows that charge roughly $40, Sideway Sunday's Car Show entry price was only $20. Lastly, the weather was much better. Taking all of this into consideration, the Car Show was smaller than the first event. I'm a bit disappointed, but after you guys look through this coverage, I hope some of you SoCal guys can make it to the next event, which will be on May 29th (Tentative).
But hey, I can't complain too much when gas prices are high as hell and we got amazing sponsors that are fully supporting this event, such as Eibach Springs...
Nos Energy Drinks..
Elite-AutoSports at the left..
JDM Sport and much more.
The event had a new vendor, Trendy Threadz. If you've been to car shows, I'm sure you guys know about this company. Make sure to check them out for sick shirts, accessories, and even JDM DVD's!
This was around 9am and cars were slowly coming in. I was surprised to see the same cars that came to support the first event. Thanks guys!
There's NOS's Marketing Team Lead, Brian. He's pretty much my neighbor now because I see him at almost every event I go to.
Now to the Show cars, starting it off with Henry's Evo. He came to the first event and decided to show up again to support. We are scheduled to feature his car, but he's always getting new parts, so until things are settled, stay tuned!
You guys read EuroTuner? If you do, then this Audi should look familiar. I call him the 'Euro Star' when he's a Mexican :D
Few members from RISK came to show.
I believe this Accord was part of the team.
Good to see this S14. We'll be posting up a video of this ride filmed by a talented videographer.
S2k from Password:JDM.
....DAYM! Savini's Lambo. Enough said.
Tan from Password:JDM came to enjoy the show.
One of my favorite LS's. Why do I like it? Look at it.

This FC was pretty dam sick with its V-mount.
Now to the Drifting area, there were a lot of drifters participating for the second event.
There's Tony from Team Infinit.
Most of the participants were the grassroots and I'm sure these guys will improve in a matter of time.
Huh? You don't usually see pick-up trucks drifting. These guys were pretty dam good on the track and heard they drift every week at Adams Motorsports.
A good friend of mine, Jason in his Takata Green S14.
More drifting shots on OpenClutch soon. Sorry for the non-close up photos. Photography + Modding a car = Broke.
Back to the Car Show area and spotted Jose, owner of the Audi.
NOS Energy Drinks brought their staging truck.
Seen a few GT-R's and this one was probably the first 'non-project GT-R's by aftermarket companies' that I liked. Custom Midnight Purple body color, 20in Rays wheels, Varis CF hood, and much more.
Savini's Lambo leaving the show.
Nicely fitted LS.
It was my first time seeing this Z and I liked it a lot.
What would wheels look like if WORK and BBS collaborated?
NOS yO~! I drank 2 sugar free ones and was hyped up throughout the whole night.
There's Jeff, one of the staffs for this event.
It was sunny and hot, but seems like most of the people enjoyed the show.
O dam! Look who came to support? FD drifter Alex Pfeiffer.
Talking with Lee Ho from JDM Sport.
Random, but I see that Grandpa at the right at Model events almost every time.
Expecting this place to be overcrowded for the next event.
Spectator and Car Show participants checking out the drifting.
A few drifting shots, although most of them look like Time Attack shots :D More/New photos will be up on OpenClutch. You guys gotta understand I was the only one from Night-Import taking the shots so I had to walk back and forth.
Once again, back to the Car Show area and DJ Pow doing his thing.
Good amount of people who came to watch the drifting event.
There's the boss of this whole event. Troy from Adams Motorsports.
Looking good Lee!
Elite-Autosports enjoying his meal.
One of the staffs S14.
MyImportFashion working with the models.
Troy always likes to keep things entertaining, such as doing a mini side event.
While the action was happening in the Car Show area, the drifters were taking their time relaxing.
Back to drifting.
Some of the runs were tandem drifting and it wasn't bad at all. Hope to see you guys at the next event.
The winners. Congratulation guys!
Lastly, the two final drifters and the winner was the Veilside Rx-7.
I decided to share this coverage with different photos on OpenClutch to promote this event worldwide. There's not too many monthly events that consist of Drifting and Car Show and I'm sure many automotive enthusiast will love to come and check out some sick rides along with action. Come to the third Sideway Sundays event and have a blast!
