S2K With Rare Flair

With how popular the S2000 is among car enthusiasts these days and how abundant aftermarket parts are for this platform, it’s pretty hard to stand out from the crowd. That is, unless you choose your parts wisely and go routes that are less traveled.

My favorite aftermarket front bumper for the S2K has got to be the Sorcery piece.

This front end is both subtle and aggressive at the same time..

The rest of the exterior, as I’ve stated above, is a little different than other S2Ks out there thanks to the ultra rare Car Garage Amis fenders and rear bumper. Oh, and the Voltex Type 7 rear spoiler also sets the car off quite nicely.

Rounding out the whole ensemble is a set of classic TE37SLs.

Wekfest VIII [Event Coverage Part 3]

Yes…… I’ve been slacking really bad on blog posts these days, but it’s better late than never. These are the last of my photos from the Wekfest San Jose show nearly two months ago, so I’m not sure who would actually take the time to browse through them, but if you do then enjoy!

Wekfest VIII [Event Coverage Part 2]

Almost a month later, I’m still posting Wekfest San Jose pictures… such a shame, but I’ve been super busy lately with other things in my life and the blog has been put in the back burner for the time being. But this site is still a passion of mine so I’m still going to update from time to time which brings us to this post. I said previously that I was going to go more in depth about my thoughts on this show so let’s get right to it.

A lot of people have mentioned that Wekfest SJ is the one of the heaviest hitting show of the season and it could very well be because I did see a great number of notable builds. However, with that said, I do think there’s a bit of favoritism within the show and perhaps the Wekfest organization because there were several cars that were questionable with their eligibility for the show. I mention this because Wekfest is advertised as being the “Super Bowl” of all shows and there’s a strict screening process associated with entering the show. So this makes me question how a stock C63 AMG with only a matte black wrap make the cut, or how other borderline modded cars make the cut? Is favoritism involved? It definitely looks that way from my standpoint. Also, keep in mind that I’m not associated with anyone in the automotive industry, so this post is strictly based on my non-biased opinion.

As far as the experience of the show, I actually had a great time and ran into several friends I haven’t seen for awhile and the check-in process was smooth and swift although there was a slight delay with their setup at the entrance. Overall, the show went by smoothly but they do need to step up their screening process if Wekfest really wants to be considered “ELITE.”

Now on to some pictures!
