Welcome back to Night Import! Hope you guys are visiting the blog often to catch up with my articles, because things are about to get serious! Just playing~ As long as I can entertain you guys while at work, home, in the bathroom, with your girlfriend, ... you get the point v(^-^)v
My last partly coverage on Hot Import Nights will be a good one because the photos I'm about to share with you guys came out pretty decent considering the short amount of time I had to cover the whole area when the lights were on during the award ceremony. By the way, congratulations to all the winners! It's always unpredictable to know who will win which category because judges aren't the same for every car show event. Each judge has a different perspective when it comes to certain makes & models, so hope no one was frustrated with the judging and stuff. It's all about having fun and enjoying the time spent with friends and family right? Let's get on with the cars and see what was up at different areas of the huge ass showcase lot. The cover photo for Part 2 is the well-known VIP team in SoCal, BP VIP. It's been a while since I got to know a few members in this team, and I was surprised to see some of their rides with a new look! Click on "Read More" at the bottom right to see their rides.
Holy hotness! SC430 on a Artisan Spirit kit. Such a winning look on those Work Schwert SC2s.
Mr. BP VIP President's ride! Congratz hyung nim! (_ _)
Carl's IS was the 2nd IS I've featured on my blog. Always keeping it simple and sexy with that fitment on SSR Professor SP1s.
Those VIP Modular wheels were gorgeous!
Another BP VIP President's ride, John hyung nim's JP LS!
Ojay's LS is still in my list of favorite cars, so you'll see his ride in my 'SoCal's Finest Rides' article pretty soon.
I have not seen this Y33 before, and glad I got to see it at HIN. Love the VIP flushness on this beauty.
You can't find a sexier Previa than Normandie's.
This beauty was painted and worked on by Buddha Paint Concept.
James Oliver's freshly painted Prelude on Work Equips. He recently got featured on Canibeat, so check out his ride on that awesome blog.
Whoa! More VIP beauties I've never seen before. Dam BP VIP! Wsup?
Congratz to my boy Matthew! I still remember when he helped me out with my project BBSs. Always thinking about that yo! Thanks again and congratz on the win (^-^)
This Voltex Evo was shown in my Part 1 coverage.
Check out this air'd out Mustang.
J2G AutoSports had a good lineup.
NSXs are sexy. Enough said.
Not too often do you come across Takata Green Volk TE37s.
Wheels look a bit too big, but I see where this IS is going.
Preston Olson's Z went through a major makeover. The wheels are the same, but the body color changed from Gold/Brown to what you see in this picture.
We all know these Wagons from VIP Modular wheels. The one you see on 24k dipped VIP Modular VXs got Best Static! I missed this one at SEMA, so it was good to finally see it in person.
Next to the 1000hp Matte Black CTS-V from D3 was a twin but with different wheels and paint.
Fuuuuu~~ this ride was pimpin!
Forgot which booth these cars were under.
What you guys know about Flossy? I'm hoping to shoot this car in the near future.
1UP! Always good to see these guys.
Every time I see this Odyvia, I'm standing at a corner drooling. Seriously.
Ford Fiesta from M2-Motoring.
700hp M3! I love this Bimmer.
Very unique choice on the wheels, but the fitment was tits.
Michael Mao's NSX from Vanguard Collective is one of the most aggressively fitted NSXs in CA.
Another member from Vanguard Collective and It's JDM yO!, Jon Jon's IS! Thanks for the shout out on your feature in PAS Magazine!
How can you not love Auto Concept Elite.
R-Rydes came out full force!
Forgot which widebody kit this Evo had, but I remember seeing it at SEMA. Repping Prestige Marketing.
When it comes to VIP cars in SoCal, you can't go wrong with Platinum VIP.
Kennedy's 2JZ Aristo.
My favorite from SEMA 2010.
Jason MacGill's Evo and my buddy Eric Lam's ITB DC5.
It would've been awesome if this area was a bit bigger or I had a fish eye lens, because a few Supras were here...
Yuta's Z is a celebrity in the automotive scene and it was a different experience seeing his ride in person.
Ron's President changed colors from Black to Matte Gray(?)
Best fitted Civic ever! I later on found out these cars were under Fatlace's booth.
It was awesome to see Bulletproof Automotive getting some cars together to show at HIN. You usually don't see this company doing this, so hope they come out more to car shows!
I showed you guys some rides from Project-G and although I like every single Miata in this team, I gotta show some love to my teammate Kevin! Look at that wideness and sexiness! JMC ftw~!
RB swapped Datsun Z!
A fitment like this on a R35 is what I call Sex (not a human thing but a car thingy..like...let's move on..)
Supra and Rolls Royce from PROMAX. This company is ballin 24/7.
Really good to see ARQRAY coming out to shows. You guys should check out their exhaust systems, because I personally think they are one of the companies making the finest exhausts.
I never get tired of seeing this SL55 AMG with a Misha kit from Heavy Hitters. I think that's the owner at the right, because I heard the owner is a girl. You guys jelly? because I am.
I want to drive one...
JDM Sport! Congratz on the win guys!
I gotta end this coverage with a photo of our editor Edgar and his G35. It was really really really really really good to see him finally winning an award. He got 2nd place Infiniti!!
Hope you guys enjoyed this coverage! I know it was a bit sloppy, but I promise a better coverage next year with better equipment.
