Wekfest San Jose 2017 [Event Coverage Part 4]

Alright looks like I was kidding about this being the last post for the Wekfest SJ coverage cause I have a little more photos to go through, and also I want to keep the posts at a reasonable length, so make sure to check out “Part 5” as well when it goes up. Before we continue on to the photos, I just want to say that I’m super bummed out that I missed Wekfest Seattle because the PNW and the Canadians brought some serious heat to the show. Judging from the pictures that I’ve seen so far, it’s safe to say that the Seattle showing was of higher quality than the SJ one. Now, I just have to make a note to not miss out on that show next year. But anyways, back to some Wekfest SJ photos…

Project Cars 2 had the best booth at the show with their wide body M3 and their racing simulators setup.

The Phaze2 86 was one of my favorites at the show. You really can’t go wrong with a Varis wide body setup along with perfectly fitting OG TE37s.

Strasse Sport 991 GT3 looking fabulous.

This Speed Element STi is always a welcomed sight at all the Bay Area shows.

I find it extremely difficult to find a clean Rocket Bunny V1 86 these days.

Super clean LSx swapped FD. It’s just not my cup of tea because I’m a purist and prefer no pistons when it comes to RX7s.

Voltex attire with Volk Racing TE37V shoes on a STi; tough to beat this combo.

Another Bay Area car show regular from the Speed Element crew.

This is not a bad looking X.

Another one of my favorites at the show, coming all the way from SoCal. I’ve actually been following this build and I just love all the parts and details that’s been added to this car. And this is probably one of the best TE37V Mark II setups I’ve seen.

The Speed Element crew had all the right cars at the show; this R32 is another clean example.

The TrackSpec Evo was a welcomed sight at the show, at least for me.

And finally, closing out this post with this fine GRB aired out on Volk Racing TE37V Mark II.

Remember to check back for the next part!


Wekfest San Jose 2017 [Event Coverage Part 3]

Hey guys, thanks for your patience, I had thought that I would fit everything else in this post but I realized that I had more photos than I’ve anticipated on putting up on the site so “Part 4” will be coming up shortly. In the meantime, here’s some of the non-Hondas that caught my attention at the show. Enjoy!

The Old & New kitted 997 looks absolutely flawless in this particular colorway.

One of a few R32s present at the show.

A pristine Lotus Elise.

Alfa Romeo 4C on Advan wheels.

This was one of my favorites at the show, a Cayman GT4 among the Speed Element group.

This is how 240s/180s should look like. I love the deep dish WedsSport Kranze Cerberus IIs with this setup.

One of only a handful of “clean” Subarus.

Even though this 86 looks very mild, the parts list was quite impressive highlighted by an Evasive Pikes Peak motor.

A couple of the clean West Collective cars from SoCal.

Do you prefer the E90 or F80? All I know is both looked equally good on BBS wheels.

MKIV Supra on TE37SL Pressed Double Black.

Rocket Bunny Lexus RC.

Another nice Rocket Bunny number, the Pandem E46 M3.

The “IMTOOLAZY” Nissan GTR in a full GT3 attire. One thing I would change on this car though is the wheels, I’m not really feeling the Rotiforms.

And….. finishing this post with a huge Precision unit mated to a 2JZ power plant.

Remember I still have “Part 4” that’s going up, so stay tuned for more goodness from Wekfest SJ!

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!
