Wekfest San Jose 2017 [Event Coverage Part 1]

Before I begin, I should point out that I probably took photos of about 30% of the cars at Wekfest SJ, so calling this a “coverage” is a bit far fetched but to maintain the quality standard of this site, I will only post my personal favorites on here. As some of you may have noticed, I’ve been transitioning the site and its related social media platforms to focus more on the Japan side of things as far as car tuning goes. Whether it’s on FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM, or here, most of my posts come directly from Japan as of late. With that said, there’s still a few shows throughout the year that interests me stateside, Wekfest SJ is one of them. Every year this show has been coined as the “Super Bowl” of all shows as it attracts some of the best builds on the West Coast. I agree with this statement in a sense just because there were some great builds present but the truth is, I personally believe that the screening process was flawed as I felt some cars did not belong in the show. But….. I don’t own or operate this show, so all I can do is spectate, take photos, and mind my own business. One of the things that did catch my attention this year was the strong showing of quality Hondas, and that’s where I’ll begin my coverage.

Couple of clean EP3s on Mugen MF10 and Work Meister, respectively.

I believe this was the ‘Best Honda’ winner.

In my eyes, this Mugen themed RSX was a serious ‘Best of Show’ contender. Although it did win ‘Best Integra/RSX of the Festival’.

This Phoenix Yellow ITR on MF10s was a favorite of mine.

My buddies Hanzel and Chris showing off their Mugen themed Berlina Blacks.

I was extremely surprised to see the incredible showing of NSXs this year. Here’s only a few of them from mild to wild!

Clean and authentic is the way to go. Even though this Formula Red AP2 looks simple, it was rocking some authentic products like the Mugen hardtop.

RHD, ITB K-swap and Mugen MF10L are perfect fit for this old school Honda.

Closing this first post with another one of my favorites of the show, the Nemos Garage FA5 equipped with FEEL’S Honda Twin Cam exterior!

Be sure stay tuned for the next segment coming soon!

MoMo Visits ASM Autobacs Yokohama [Part I]

Following my visit to Garage G-Force, since I was already in the Yokohama area, it made perfect sense to stop by non other than the ASM Autobacs Yokohama HQ for some Honda goodness. This location was very easy to find and easily accessible by rail and a short walk. The first part of a two part post consist of just the exterior of the shop which had a few decent S2000s laying around.

Words to live by.

Couple of Type S’ parked out front.

The famous banner.

A few ASM demos out front.

And a few close ups of the S2ks.

I just love this yellow AP2.

That Prodrive GC-05N x AP Racing footwork.

ASM details.

The slightly more tamed Silverstone.

Classic Prodrive GC-07.

That’s it for the exterior, stay tuned for the interior shots in the next post!

Race-Bred EM1

Happy 2017 guys! I’ve been away from the site for far too long, but I’m back! And hopefully a little more active this year. You guys can always follow me on FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM as I’m more active there. Anyways, for my first post of the year it’s an old set I took last year of a gorgeous EM1 at a local car meet. Enjoy.

I love how simple and effective the exterior of this Civic is, just a great mixture of function and form.

Mag Blue TE37, Alcon BBK, and Nitto NT01. You know this combo means serious business!

If the exterior doesn’t convince you that this is a race car, perhaps the interior will. Digital dash, quick release, and sequential shifter among other race car things.

One more look at the beautiful exterior.
