Night-Import: Photography and Words by William Lee
Wrong Fitment Crew (WFC)....this forum/site is the reason why I got into the hellaflush and stance scene. It feels as if it was yesterday when I typed in 'stance' on google, showing many sites as a result and one of them being WFC. Once I clicked on the link, my journey with the fitted scene began. To be honest, I don't even really remember how I came across the term 'stance'. This is during the period when I had no clue about modifying a car and thought aftermarket wheels were the shit.
Don't get me wrong, the choice and sizing of wheels is a critical factor when it comes to fitment, but WFC showed much more than only components.
Because of the site being a forum, people from all over the world joined WFC to show off their rides or to ask for help from fellow fitted car owners. My first day observing the site was expressed with a smile and it went on for days and weeks. It was more than just a favor or liking, but an addiction. Every morning, a cup of coffee was enjoyed with WFC and while others were studying about Biological Evolution, I was looking through the history of how stance involved.
The knowledge I have about different styles of fitment and wheel sizing all came from WFC. Just think of it as a fitment wikipedia.
Well few weeks ago, the Associate Director of WFC, Bobby Bouaphakeo, contacted me regarding their meet and was asking for coverage. I missed out on their previous meet in Santa Monica, CA and always told myself not to miss their next one, so without any doubt, September 18th was marked with an important note and alert for a 100% attendance to WFC's meet. Planned to meet up with a caravan group near my pad, I woke up early and headed straight to my car, cleaning those tire residues from daily rubbing and scraping, and right before I was about to head out, my right fender buckled. It really isn't a big deal anymore, but a problem occured once I turned my steering wheel to get some clearance to work with the fender and realizing the inner threads of both my front tires were totally gone. Long story short, home -> Irwindale Speedway -> home -> change to stock tires -> Murrieta, CA -> WFC meet @ VIP Tint.
I arrived at around 2pm and there were a few cars still rolling in, but the majority left! Luckily, the crowd was still alive. This Boso inspired Cressida greeted spectators entrance.
Deadly looking Evo.

I usually see most of the WFC rides here in SoCal, but never came across this S2000 on Enkei RPF1s. Clean!
