Night-Import: Photography and Words by William Lee
Continuing on from Part 1, I'll be going over the rest of the showcase lot and some other detailed photos. As mentioned previously, the purpose of this meet was to donate canned foods and money to the victims in Japan. The booth you guys see is where all the donated goods were handed in.
I left off finishing the left side of the lot, so starting the right side with Jeremy's hellaflush tC.
Stillen 300ZX on Volk wheels. Pretty clean car all around.
Jona's tC, which was recently featured on Stance:Nation.
Loved the colors on those SSRs.
Gloss Anodized Bronze looking good with Silver.
I remember seeing this Prelude on a different set of wheels before and it's looking fresher with those new White Work Equips.
Fully polished TE37s.
Always good to see the Subaru brothers. Seems like the other one couldn't make it.
Good to see Honda EP3s done right.
Tony from It's JDM yO! rolled in later on with some raffle goodies.
Few more cars in line to get a spot.
One thing I learned by going to tons of meets; if you see Dos Chinos, you'll definitely see a good turnout.
Seibon project Camaro.
Prestige Marketing Genesis Coupe.
Seibon's R35 looking aggressive with Carbon Fiber parts and on Volk wheels.
Team Praxis members directing the spots.
This is Team Praxis's truck on Gram Lights. G'd out for sure.
I thought I took a photo of this widebody GS, but seems like I missed it. I've seen this car before while the motor was being built.
Liking the wheel and BBK combo?
While I was busy taking photos at the other end of the lot, a few more cars took some spots at the other side.
Videographer at the left doing his thing. Looking forward to see some video coverage on this meet.
I believe this BMW belonged to Yuya's brother. White on Green? I don't mind.
There's David, another staff from VIP Modular Wheels.
Boss status LS rolling in.
Jose and David checking out the Mini with a K20.
Those VIP Modular VX series on the LS above were actually chrome dipped.
I really don't know what to say about this Benz because it was full of win.
Gorgeous paint, perfect choice on VIP Modular wheels, and the right stance.
One of my favorite cars at this meet was this Track-built Lexus GS.
You usually don't see a VIP car in the states like this one, compared to GSs that are normally drifted or tracked in Japan.
The interior had almost everything that a track car needed, which meant the motor had to follow. A 2JZ-GTE looking pretty under the hood.
Like myself, few people were looking at this car with amazement.
Can't forget about NOS Energy Drinks.
After taking some shots and resting under the shade, I walked back to the other side of the lot to see if there were new cars.
I didn't expect to see Chris's ride at all. I'm definitely a huge fan of it and as before, took some time checking out the wheels and fitment.
Take a look at that camber. Great job Chris! Love it!
The crowd was building up.
Although I support authenticity, I do understand those who can't afford high-end wheels and never have I talked smack about them. But the ONLY time when I'll go crazy over replica wheels is when non-matching center caps are on it, like this one. Why would anyone try to put on BBS center caps on XXRs. I don't get this at all, but seems like some people just want to do it.
Peter's Evo from PVR Motorsports.
and this kid is starting young.
I usually don't see Kogi at meets, but seems like Johnny Ho made it happen.
Booths of NOS and It's JDM yO!
RYWIRED CR-X. I've seen this ride on The Chronicles a few times.
This SC rolled in before I left. Looking sick!
I saw this guy and few of his friends walking back and forth, and found out they were from StanceWorks.
Photographers going crazy when models are present.
Great meet and turnout! I have no clue on how much was raised or the amount of canned foods donated, but it was good to see automotive enthusiasts coming to support.
