Why does it feel like the week is going faster than usual? I remember writing up part 1 on Monday, but it's already Thursday and I'm writing the final part of my Motion Auto Show coverage. O well~ It might be good for some of you guys who felt as if these past few days were slow as hell.
Today's coverage will cover the other parts of the showcase area and I'll be talking about some random things that I observed throughout the show. I actually stayed until 6pm chilling with my boys at Import Fashion's booth, but didn't get a chance to hear the awards being announced. I have no idea why I missed the last part...because....I can't remember what the hell I was doing. Those dam gummy bears...Ged..you know exactly what I'm talking about. Anyways, in the words of comedian David So, "LGI son! Let's get it! Let's go!"
What you see is the first Scion FR-S Roadster. I'm sure many of you guys already left a deposit to your local Scion dealership to buy the all new Scion FR-S. Personally, I will not be getting one even though I'm switching up cars pretty soon. The car itself has great aftermarket support and has so much potential when it comes to power, but I just don't have that feeling or need to purchase one. I'm sure the Scion crowd will get much better compared to the years when the tC was out.
Right next to the Scion FR-S were nicely modified cars displayed under MPC Forged wheels.
I wasn't too fond of the wheel design on this Panamera 4, but the overall fitment was on point.
From the rear.
One of my favorite cars out of all the brands and models out there from the past to current is the NSX. The exotic and extinguishing lines give me the chills.
Such a beautifully fitted GT-R R35 on BBS LMs.
A few Voltex aero parts looking good on this Evo fitted with Volk RE30s.
Bumped into my boy John Marinas (owner of the Yellow Rx-7 FD) and he was showing off the upcoming HIN event flyer because both of his cars were on it :D
There were plenty of booths at MAS, but the one that made the loudest noise was probably Import Fashion's. IF pretty much had its own party.
Steve from Liquid Kiss filming something... I have no clue.
If I had to choose 5 cars that I liked the most from MAS, this STi built by GarageSpec would make it into my list. There were a lot of high-end parts on this car, such as the full Voltex kit, FRP vented hood, and the wheels that you don't usually see anymore, which are Dunlop Rozest SS-01 Competition wheels. Yes...I love wheels and try to memorize every single make and model as if I'm studying for a medical exam. Don't judge me.
The lovely Lexus IS-F, aggressively fitted on Vossen wheels. Check out that truck spoiler~ If this is the same car I saw at LTBMW's meet, then that's a new product on the car because I didn't see it before.
Gotta love a Voltex Evo. It looks pretty darn good on those Red Volk TE37SLs.
Ok...I want to buy TE37SLs now...
Guess the car (^-^)
Yeap~! It's a DC5. Eric's Back Yard DC5 has been in the scene for quite a long time now and he's been winning a lot of awards throughout those years. If I'm not mistaken, he won 2 awards. Usually when someone wins an award, you see him/her all excited and stuff, but Eric was all cool about it....like a boss.
I'm sure for those who went to MAS saw the Hakosuka hiding behind a tent. I heard the owner took it to Targa Trophy and because it was all beaten up (in a good way), he decided to make it rest by being inside the shade.
Hello there Oscar~
He be rolling hard like a motha fuka! Gawd dam this Chrysler looks like a boss.
M~ m M!!!! So shexy.
So back to that LS430 I showed you guys in Part 1, this car will also make it into my top 5 cars at the show because of so many things that were customized to fit the car. I didn't even know what body kit it was on.
Look at that gorgeous Red interior.
Shiny and clean as f*ck.
One more shot. *Applauding*
Models on Ruckuses.
I thought this was the car I saw at SEMA, but it's somewhat similar looking to the LS I saw at SEMA.
Never tired of seeing Ojay's LS. I think I've seen it at almost every meet and event here in SoCal. Congratz on the win!
Junction Produce ❤
You'll be seeing more of Cusco products and their booth at events. Keep an eye on these guys because they are just starting to blow up here in the US. Btw, HI STEVE!
It was a privilege to see this Rx-7 FD from Falken drifting at Sideway Sundays. There were 10~15 staffs inside the track on that day and we were able to see this car up-close. To see the small feature I wrote, click here.
Justin Pawlak's Rx-7 FD again.
Spotted DJ Pow doing his thang at Falken's booth.
That AMG ass.
Gawd dammit...the fitment and kit made me almost faint.
Until Danh from More Japan decided to do a Ninja move in front of me, messing up that mood...
Back to the unique Lexus CT 200h again. Now, this car was seriously unique in so many ways, it literally made everyone look at the car in awe because it was so dam sparkly. Look at those crystals on the emblem, mesh, wipers, doors, etc. The Aimgain kit was looking sick though.
You need guts to slap these crystals on the car and drive it around your town, because personally, I wouldn't do it. Either way, props to the owner for doing something different.
Because the Lexus above was in SSR's booth, I took a shot of the all new SSR MS3. You can tell it's new because of the NEW! sign at the lower right.
Ok. It's time to talk about models. Wait..sorry..girls who come to car shows who decide to model. One thing I like about MAS is that most of the known models keep it classy throughout the show. When I mean by classy, I'm talking about not being half naked with bitchy attitudes. Most of the models I saw at MAS were awesome. They were looking good, nice, interacting with spectators, etc.
But you'll obviously come across a group of girls who don't know jack about what they're doing because probably they were recruited just for fun or had a look appealing to one guy within a small modeling organization. Now one thing I saw that was pretty stupid was this girl pretty much making out with her boyfriend when she came to model. I know a few popular models that aren't single and do come to car shows with their bf, but never have I seen a scene like this before. You either see the couples usually helping each other out, but not making out.
Seriously...wth is this? I'm not jealous or anything and I wouldn't be jealous in any way beacuse I go to car shows because of cars, but if you come to a car show to model and at the same time decide to make out with your boyfriend, gtfo. How in the world will shy photographers even take a photo of you when they'll be thinking "o shit, it's her bf, i'm gonna get my ass kicked if I take a photo of her." ........... (-_-;)
Moving on to cars again... (^_^)v... another favorite at MAS was this classic Datsun 510 representing Team Hybrid.
This car was so clean bottom to top, right to left.
WALD Black Bison Lexus LS600h that was the cover in my part 2 coverage.
LS swapped Rx-7 FD.
The infamous AE86 from R-Rydes. I always expect this car to get 1st place in the old school or Toyota category, but it won 3rd place in the Toyota class. The car did win Best Engineering though, so that pretty much made it up.
Ryan usually takes 1st place in the Mazda category at almost every event in SoCal, and surely enough, he won 1st place.
If I do get a Cadillac, this car is an example of how it would look like. No joke.
From far away, Ballade Sports Spoon S2000.
When it comes to exotic looking Domestics as well as being f'ing powerful, D3 is the company to visit.
OOOOuuu~~~!! Look who decided to show his car for the first time? Steve's GT-R R35 was featured on our site not too long ago. He's been keeping it down-low because of his busy life, but KW suspension asked him to come out and he actually did. Such a surprise.
100% smog legal LS swapped Mazda Rx-7 FD. I have no idea why I identified this car as a Miata before lol My bad!
Took a close-up shot of Luigi, also known as Mr. HIN.
Ah yes!! M7 Japan, which is a well-known aftermarket company in Japan, had its own booth at MAS and brought out there project GRB STi. This car was absolutely sick!
Glad I came across this Voltex Evo because I had a good time checking it out. Such an awesome color combo and a lot of quality parts.
After a good walk around the showcase area, I decided to check out the Bikini contest, which was held at the main stage. Look at these people!
It would be awesome if a crowd like this was around a car....
Amy Ames doing her thang in a student outfit..bikini..clothing..whatever you want to call it.
I didn't notice that security guard until I saw this photo. How in the hell did he resist the temptation to not turn around and see the ass of that model when everyone in front of him went crazy. Props to you sir!! Look at his face. Keeping it straight! O yea.. and Jeri Lee is hot.
This was the crowd in front of him. LOL
Being hungover and at the same time not eating anything other than candy that I snatched from a few booths, my friends and I decided to head over to CPK right across the convention center.
The food wasn't bad at all, but I ordered a simple vegetable sandwich and it took them 1 hour to bring out the food. Even worse, the waitress was asking if we needed a box when the food wasn't even out. Wtf? if that was the case, why in the world would we walk into a restaurant and sit down at a table? (--;)
Shiet was small..but it tasted pretty good...
One of the worst dinners I ever had, but looking at this combo made it up.
Ending the coverage with this bad ass 62 Impala.
Hope you guys enjoyed my coverage. It's been a long time since I wrote something this long. As long as it wasn't boring, then I'm good :) Probably the next event coverage I'll be doing will be Wekfest, so stay tuned!
