Night-Import: Photography and Words by William Lee
Back with the coverage on SpoCom! I know you guys were waiting for it! (if not...nvm). There are so many photos to share and like always, I don't want to dump them in a photo album for you guys to just click and check out, so you'll be seeing separate parts of my own coverage and also a few others done by our photographers as well.
I made a few mistakes in Part 1 and those are now fixed! Things got a bit hectic at the last minute and I had to leave without reading what I even wrote. Promise I'll be a bit more careful before I get threatened. (-_-)v
I'm starting Part 2 with a photo of MotorMavens and Wheel Flip's booth. Thanks again to Antonio from MotorMavens for helping us out. More photos will be shared later on.
Where I should have started happened 2 hours later, but better than never right? Here's a BMW E46 done by TNT Autobody, rolling on Volk TE37s. Good to be sponsored by Falken tires.
I'm sure this AE86 got enough fame, but for those who still don't know, that's a swapped S2000 F20C motor. Full feature by Super Street here.
Somewhat fitted Camaro.
Haven't seen this Rx-7 FC in person before, but saw a photo that was posted by Marcus Cooke Photography. This FC actually belongs to the owner of the Yellow FD our photographer Andy shoot, which will show up as you guys scroll down.
This BMW was flashing a lot of colorful Halos.
Randy's Lambo Orange G.
More than just impressive.
I didn't realize our photographer Andy Nguyen came in, but this guy drives all the way from NorCal to do an event coverage no matter how big the event is. Always appreciate Andy doing work for us!
Spotted Canibeat's photographer Marcus Cooke.
Style overall is a bit too much, but if the wheels were actually sitting flush to the widebody fenders and the headlights weren't condensated, I would give it a thumbs up.
VIP Auto Salon's project Lexus Hybrid on some Gloss Bronze Anodize lipped wheels.
K&N and their Evo. This was my first time seeing this company at an event.
I remember seeing this S13.5 at Formula D Tech Day @ UTI. Loved the overall style.
Our supporter Odi Bakchis! YAY!!!!!!
The fame on this Minty Fresh Z on VIP Modular Wheels repping LowBallers spread like a virus! Check out its feature on StanceWorks.
First saw this IS through Import Fashion.
Few rides repping AA Autoworks.
It's either a hate or like thing, but I personally love this car. I don't know why, but the execution is catchy.
I remember seeing this Cube being worked on before it even got a paint job. It came out pretty nice.
Few more Benzes from the MB Junkies line.
I fell in love with this color.....Color Code please?
Not too common to see modified BMW 1 series, but this one was pretty clean sitting on Advan RZs. John Zhang! Where you at!??
You guys already know about Team Praxis.
"Welcome to VIP Modular Wheels."
This finish was called Aqua something..
VIP Modular bringing out VIP/VIP style cars like always.
Another Veilside Z spotted after the first one in Part 1.
If this is the same Supra I saw at XDC, it pulls 1000HP.
ABS Dynamics Genesis Coupe.
What the heal? If i'm not mistaken...is that a Camry?
AimGain VIP GS.
One of the Evos I've seen around at a lot of major car shows repping his sponsor Password:JDM.
Rally'd out Evo I saw at MOD 2011.
I was speechless when I saw this Chocolate Brownie Brown (that's what I call it) Altezza on Work VS-XXs. I was expecting a 2JZ under the hood, but by far, this is one of the sexiest paint jobs on an Altezza I've ever seen. Clap Clap Clap.
Full Vertex S14.
It hasn't been too long since I shot John's car when it had different set of wheels and in a few months, he did a major upgrade by buying to these very expensive, ballerish, concave DPE wheels. High five brotha!!
Mm...Work Meisters on a G sedan...not bad.
Tracked Matte G. Starting from that Blue G at the top till this Matte G, all of these guys are from RAREJDM, a company/friend-family/team.
Where are all the FD2s? I think this is the only one I've seen so far.
Keeping it simple.
Classic Datsun with even rare classic JDM wheels.
Now to team Ar-k-n. I don't know the exact history of this team, but heard they used to be pretty dam crazy with their show cars and with the amount of members.
Full Voltex....gawd dam...
Ar-k-n is starting to recruit new members, so I'll be looking forward to their growth again.
It was surprising to see so many GT-R R35s like the Fontana Nissan Meet I attended last month.
A "Black Edition" R35.
This one was pretty darn crazy. I've seen it once at the 626 meet, but always forgot to take a closer look at it. The Aeromotions spoiler you see retails for $1,700 and the price is definitely worth it. Why? Check out Aeromotions website.
The color on this R35 was absolutely stunning. It had a mix of Purple, Brown, Gold, etc.
Time Attack R35 from Fontana Nissan.
Looked pretty sick.
Look what we have here. Our supporters Bulletproof Automotive's GT-RR. I can't explain how crazy this beast is so you'll have to visit their site to read more about it.
Last time I saw COBB Tuning's R35, it was on sale.
Fitted on HRE wheels.
These two R35s along with the others above got chosen as DSPORT x NAGTROC R35 Showcase cars. Congratulations!
That's it for Part 2. More exciting stuffs coming up in Part 3 and a separate coverage done by our photographers. Bye~!
