Night-Import: Photography and Words by William Lee
Yesterday night will be one of those memorable moments of my time being in the automotive scene exploring car meets because of going through 6+ bumps in Eagle Rock plaza that literally ripped off my front lip because of being too low and having to come out of my car every time I went over one because my bumper fell off, but also because I attended a car meet held at a permitted lot!
This was my first time attending this meet after hearing others the 1st one was epic, so I didn't know what to expect. O yea, just a heads up, from now on my coverage on events or meets will have a title on the cover photo. I usually just post a photo that goes along with the whole event/meet, but seems like some of you guys liked/wanted a title on it, so look forward to seeing poor title fonts (^_^)v.
This is where the entrance was to the meet lot. Unlike other meets, this one actually had staffs leading cars.. How much organized can a meet get?
That small bump at the left side...i hated those...
No tripod on this day, so the photos are going to be bit blurry, but at the right side were mostly Hondas. I was not a fan of their modification style, but good to see these guys coming out to support a meet.
Clean STi in front of the entrance.
Didn't expect to see a legendary classic Celica GT. For some reason, the car wasn't turning on or something so a few people had to push it.
I remember seeing this MR2 at TORC. Great fitment on VS-XXs.
Another one, but on bright ass Volks.
There were vendors at a meet! You see those tents at the back? Well there were some cars repping some of these vendors like this Vinyl wrapped M3 on Carbon Fiber overlay wheels.
A few Benzes and BMWs were repping Vossen wheels.
Loving the fitment on those BBSs.
Not a fan of this color combo but props on being unique.
Can't go wrong with an E36 on BBS RSs.
From Bimmerfest...well..most of these BMWs were spotted at that event.
I guess he'll be going home soon to slap on these wheels.
Nicely fitted STi on Work Emotion XD9s.
Supra MKIII on Enkei RPF1s.
These Evos were looking good on the 5 spoke Advans I've been favoring the most this month.
Didn't expect to see Team Ar-Kan.
S2000 with a Cusco Roll cage and sitting on Enkei NT03+Ms.
Corolla on Work Meisters repping HFD.
Very good turnout!
Few more sexy classics.
EG from Team Infinit.
O shit! A cop! He was cool though.
Like I always say...wherever I go...I'll spot people faking the funk. Now..if you're going to fake something (this is totally different from rocking fake parts), at least have some wheels that look similar to the original ones...you know what..just don't fake the funk.
I'm sure that wasn't an authentic HKS intercooler...
An unusual choice of wheels for a Rx-8.
Widebody Porsche Cayman. No clue on what bodykit that is.
Look who dropped by? Fatlace!
Yogi riding in style~
Slow Kuruma's R35 breaking necks.
VIP GS rolling in.
Photoshoot in session...
Love Jon Jon's IS. It's amazing how a non-VIP platform car dominating VIP categories at car shows.
Of course, 1UP x It's JDM yO!
xBs from bB Squad.
Last shot I took before heading out to another car meet.
Had a great time meeting new people and cars. I'll probably have to be more careful next time when going here because it's really a biatch to go up to this plaza...anyways, looking forward to the next meet!
