Night-Import: Photography and Words by William Lee
After an awesome time at Lexus The Pursuit III with my boys Low N Slow, I went straight to another event that luckily wasn't too far from where I lived. A good friend of mine, Norman, was hosting his own event for the first time and I had to attend to support while doing coverage. Most of you guys who only show won't understand how much time and effort is needed in order to create an event. It might sound easy, but the cost, location, people you need to talk to, notifying the police department, etc., takes a long time. It's definitely worth it if an event has a good turnout, but not knowing what will happen really gives a huge amount of pressure. I really can't compare such situations to mine when I hosted a meet at JIC Magic few months ago, but even that was a PITA to manage. Either way, I gotta give mad props to Norman for hosting an event at a Go Kart Racing place (Racing Edge Karting) in Burbank. Thumbs up buddy!
One of my favorite TSXs was parked inside the Go Kart area. I've seen this car since last year when I got into the scene and liked everything about it.
I suck at taking drift shots, so took this opportunity to practice with Go Karts :D
There's the man behind this whole event. Norman's like "What!"
While chilling inside the place with a few friends of mine, our editor Edgar Lozoya decided to buy this big ass pizza. I think it was like $50 or something...
Time to get serious!
This Legacy Wagon was looking fresh on fully polished Blitz wheels. It even had Endless BBKs.
Dope STi I saw at WFC's meet last month.
I remember seeing this Subi at Glendale while going to the Galleria. Those Work Meisters were looking so good!
I see some work in progress.
Other than the decals on the door, I digged this RSX.
Old school Zs are becoming my favorite.
Super Advans on a Civic? Pretty unique.
Can't go wrong with Enkei NTO3+Ms.
I'm seeing this STi pretty often now.
Felipe's tC from Sciontific.
Dean's tC is a killer! This guy needs to go out to car shows more often!
Wow. I remember seeing this RSX last year when I just got into the scene.
Miata on White TEs.
Nicely done Fit.
I totally forgot to take shots of the cars parked at the other side >:( I think I was going to wait until the sun went down, but left early because of so many photos I needed to edit from photoshoots and events. I did see AE86s, Low N Slow crew members, a few civics, etc. Sorry guys!
Here's another location where cars were parked. This place was pretty awesome because it was a small warehouse.
Slammed Civic on CCWs I did a Random Nightlight feature on last year.
I have no clue on what model this is from the Porsche line, so help me out.
EG I fell in love with at AutoCon last year.
This Integra is pretty famous.
This rare classic belongs to Ryan, owner of the STi from 1UP. We talked for a long time about this beauty and I was very impressed with how much work he put into it in a short amount of time. If you still don't know what car this is, it's a Datsun Bluebird-U SSS and this particular model was in limited productions.
Old school wheels.
Nicely done CR-Z on Mugens.
I've seen this Civic a few times now and like everything about it.
Another EG I fell in love with after seeing it at Eagle Rock Plaza Meet.
I should have taken more photos, but this is about it. Once again, sorry for not covering the other side of the showcase lot!
To Norman: Congratz on the good turnout! :)
