Spocom SF 2017 [MoMo’s Top Picks Part 2]

I’ve been attending local car shows (Bay Area) for close to a decade now and I think it’s finally time to call it quits as it’s becoming more repetitive than inspirational. Sure, there are still some great builds popping up from time to time but these are becoming few and far between. This notion that good builds are few and far between was evident at Spocom this past weekend where it actually felt more like a meet than a show. Of course, I can’t blame the hosts as they’re more focused on the business aspect of things but for a spectator like me, the show left me with much more to be desired.

I’ve made a point before that I’m not a huge fan of wide bodies and rivets but for certain cars it works pretty well. A Rocket Bunny CLK is a good example.

RCF on TE37SLs looks tidy.

I love this E46 M3 on BBS E88 along with some Varis bits.

The C5 Z06 is actually one of my favorite American cars. Looks even better on CCW Classics.

A couple of Japanese classics.

Clean examples of 300ZXs are so rare these days so it was refreshing to see a few good ones out there. This particular one was on some rare magnesium Nismo LMGTs.

This STi is a staple at every Bay Area show.

Finishing this post off with two of my favorites at the show. An Advance NSX and a J’s Racing Type-S S2000… both coincidentally on black CE28Ns.

So that’s about all that really caught my eyes at the show, I know there’s probably a few more cars that I’ve missed but I think I’ve got the majority of nice builds covered. Until next time…

Finest Madonna

I’ve always been a fan of huge wings, diffusers, and crazy aerodynamics for specific Japanese sports cars like Evos, STis, S2000s and NSXs. But that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate a mild and refined build as well, so as far as NSXs are concerned, I think the Route KS Madonna kit is one of the cleanest, most beautiful kits available.

I’ve seen several NSXs with Madonna kits before but this one still remains the best executed example in my eyes.

No splitters, carbon fiber, or big wings needed here.

Couldn’t think of a better set of shoes for this NSX than these Mercury Silver CE28s.

The thing that I really love about the Madonna kit is how well it compliments the stock lines of the NSX and it makes it hard to tell that it’s actually a wide body kit. Talk about subtle but effective!

Evil Pedigree

This beastly NSX is as evil as they come. Rocking nothing but black, it’ll definitely scare many people away.

Gloss Black CEs are perfect match for this NSX.

Taitec rear diffuser, Taitec GT-Wing, and GT-One exhaust round out the rear of the car.
