Wekfest San Jose 2017 [Event Coverage Part 5]

So here it is the last of it, I gotta make sure I have these up before all the Seattle goodness overwhelms the San Jose stuff on the web. But if you are interested in seeing some Seattle coverage after this, be sure to head over to STICKYDILJOE.COM for some really good coverage and some harsh but good reading material. He had me at “Stop making fake FR-S Rocket Bunny panels fit on your cars. THEY DON’T FIT! There’s such a thing called “body lines” that people need to follow for Christ’s sake.” This short rant just resonates with me because that’s exactly how I feel about the aftermarket scene these days, especially in California. So I hope future builders and new generation car enthusiasts take notes and hopefully we can get back on track as far as great car builds are concerned. Anyways, back to the matter at hand, I did a slight adjustment in editing with the last batch of photos so hopefully you guys like them. Thanks for looking as always!

A lovely E30 M3 on OZ Futuras.

White RWB looks pretty damn clean.

This Evo had a mixture of exterior panels such as Ings side skirts and C-West front that actually worked pretty well. Of course the engine bay with the dump tubes was also nicely done.

No pistons and big turbo.

You can almost never go wrong with Varis on any car like a 370Z and Evo X, respectively.

The Mackin booth was pretty lit with a full carbon GTR and of course, their wheel displays.

Love this Wald ISF equipped with a little extra boost.

Pretty clean E46 on BBS GT2s.

Kinda like the livery on this Cayman GT4.

This is another popular Bay Area car.

Voltex is my favorite attire on Evos.

Do you prefer the R34 or R35? I’m sure I know what the majority would vote for…

A couple of Pandem cars made their way up from LA for the show.

Another one from SoCal is the LB 458.

My friend David’s Knight Sports FD that I did a feature on a couple months back. -> Knight Sports FD

Clean IS300/Altezza by the Chronicles booth.

And finally, closing out the coverage with this crazy RB26 powered Bimmer.

So there you have it, I know it really wasn’t a full coverage but I think I got just about all that needed to be covered as far as for this site is concerned. I hope you guys enjoyed what I did cover and see you guys on the next post!

Tsukuba Parking Area

Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to hit up the famous Daikoku Futo PA on my recent trip to Japan, so these few Tsukuba hard parker photos will have to do. There were actually a lot more notable cars in the parking area, but I was too anxious to head towards the paddock area so I just skipped past them.

MoMo Hits Tsukuba Circuit!!! [ TC2000 2017 Part III ]

Welp, here we are, the end of the line on my Tsukuba coverage, well maybe not quite but this is the end of it for the most part. I really wish my memory card didn’t malfunction cause there was so much more that I wanted to show you guys. Regardless, I’m pretty content with what I have and I do have some more images on my phone that are not posted here, (See INSTAGRAM) so not all is lost! I’m also really surprised by the amount of interest that people have on this coverage which is amazing because I’ve been wanting to transition this brand to focus more on Japanese tuning and motorsports. So, I’m really glad that you guys are on the same page with me as far as taking this site to the direction that I wanted to go. With that, let’s continue!

So I had made my way around the paddock area after taking in all the goodness that was parked before my eyes, and I noticed that the paddock actually extends back to a back field area. Being the curious self that I am I decided to investigate; and I was so glad that I did because there were a couple of GEMS that were parked in the back away from the rest of the crowd. You’ll know what I’m talking about after the break…..

Before we head to the back lot, here’s a few more heavy hitters for the day.

The Aslan EG looks so menacing for such a small car.

Does this even need introduction?

Garage Saurus power plant.

The GCG Evo pitted at the end of the front paddock.

Now, off to the back area…

Here’s only one of less than a handful of R35s present that day.

The Material Auto Factory Supra was one of my favorites of the day.

And then it’s Mazdas and S15s from here till the end…

Not my favorite but still a lot better than the stuff you see Stateside.

Rotaries were in abundance this day.

Silvias were also well represented like this gorgeous number here, and also the Yashio Factory matte black machine below.

And finally, more 7s including the Car Shop Glow crew.
