Night-Import: Photography and Words by William Lee
Being in the automotive scene for a year now, I've been through situations that were positive and negative. From seeing people acting immaturely to witnessing fist fights at meets and events every moment became memorable. One of the most depressing news though is to hear a close friend or someone you don't really know of too well but seen a few times at local meets, passing away from an incident.
A close friend of Tracy's from team Low N Slow, Aleron Castro rested in peace about a month ago because of a medical problem that wasn't announced. I've personally met Aleron a week or so before this happened and couldn't believe the news. He was an automotive enthusiast and had the passion for cars like all of us.
What's really appreciative about this scene is to see people collaborating to help out a cause and that's what happened last week for the meet put together by Tracy and his teammates Low N Slow for Aleron and his family.
The credit really goes to Tracy for making this meet happen because he worked his butt off to bring out all the necessities, such as food trucks, vendors, etc.
Also, props to team Low N Slow for organizing this meet early in the morning to help out Tracy.
The team only had 2 weeks or so to promote this meet and the turnout was absolutely spectacular. You'll be seeing the photos as you scroll down. Here's the team at the front waiting for the cars to roll in.
Chris's truck on different set of wheels while his other ones are being worked on.
Sam from Wright Wheels in his unfinished S2000. I'll be talking about his car later on.
Question is...Do you know Milt?
Rik's RPS13, recently featured on RealJDM.
I don't really remember seeing this S13 before, but it sure was clean as hell.
Waiting for those pieces to come in Ted!
Mustafa's SC sitting pretty with the new set of beauties.
Noel has some plans with those SSRs so stay tuned.
Haven't seen Jason and his Wagon in a long time. Good seeing you brotha.
Low N Slow's photographer Mike's TSX.
Tracy's TSX on CCWs.
First time seeing this car, so no clue on whose it was.
Loving the fitment on this G. If your front fenders are F'd up, that means you are doing it right.
I first thought these Volk TE37s were Mag Blue but later on found out the color was even rarer.
Forgot the color name, but just know these don't come in hand too often.
IS-F Blue G35 on VS-XXs, introduced in our SmartWax meet coverage.
Showing how a G35 can look exotic.
Just a random snap of this bug blending in with Chris's custom colored trunk.
Always good to see a few rides I'm familiar with.
This FC was pretty balling with its RE Amemiya kit.
Team Shyne came to support the meet.
I was drooling over this G for quite a long time. Loved the fitment and wheels.
Daily driven and on static. Keep it up Jeremy.
Repping it big time.
I believe this drift car was from Vildini Motosports.
Look who came down from Murrieta~ Norman's Junction Produce GS.
If you live near Murrieta, make sure to get your tints done by VIP Tint!
Tuck Tuck Tuck.
I've been a fan of this EP3 because of its simplicity and blinging wheels!
Another EP3 on Volk ce28ns.
Fully polished or chrome dipped Mugens blinding my eye sight.
Look familiar? It's the Accord Wagon featured on Super Street a few years ago.
Stay tune for its feature on Just Stance.
Back to Sam's ride, this car is not completed yet, but the fitment is. These Volk RE30s were built for Euro cars, but as you can see, Wright Wheels works on wheels to fit any car.
We got a special coverage for this company coming up probably in a week or so.
Food truck alert!!!
Ending Part 1 with this candy Kevin brought from HK. You bite into it and a burst of coca cola comes out. I'll just say it's addicting. Anyways, more coming up in Part 2!
