[Event Coverage] Hot Import Nights 2015 *San Jose Edition*

Better late than never! Finally caught up with my posts this week with the few photos that I took from HIN San Jose a couple weekends back. My impression of this show was not very positive and I thought it was lacking in some degree to other big name events. Of course, there were some obstacles the HIN crew had to overcome, most notably the last minute changes in venue which was probably the reason behind the sub-par showing of cars and overall in-cohesiveness of the show. The highlight of the show for me personally, was seeing Miss HIN 2015, Vicki Li in the flesh as she’s my favorite import model at the moment! Other than that, most of the notable cars were repeats from Wekfest, and the rest were just okay at best.
