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 Goes To TYPE ONE [Part II: A Peek Inside]

Continuing on from last week’s post, this time let’s take a peek inside the Type One shop, although so many people and blogs have taken pictures from there, most of us pretty much know the whole layout of the place. Because of this reason, I was actually debating on skipping Type One altogether, but then I figured seeing pictures online and stepping foot in the actual shop is two completely different experiences. So, I hopped on the JR and headed towards Okigubo Station.

A twenty minute walk from Okigubo Station and you’re greeted by the famous orange signage.

The shop consists of two levels, both had work areas but the top floor is mainly a showroom. (Above photo is of the bottom floor)

Spoon engines and assemblies were scattered around the showroom area.

The Spoon wall of valve covers were some pretty nice eye candy.

Got a favorite front bumper?

A gorgeous AP2 just tucked in a corner…

The famous car rack with a new S660 and an old school EA.

A clean Euro R being catered to in the work area.

Spoon dabbles in bikes as well.

This is quite possibly the best car at the shop. How can you not love a Spoon NSX!?

And last but not least, I had to leave a mark at the shop.

So, that’s about it for my Type One visit, I hope you guys have enjoyed my Japan adventures so far. I do have one more stop left but that will go up after a FRS feature that I just shot this past weekend. Until then, enjoy!

MoMo Hits Up Powerhouse Amuse [Part II]

Continuing from my last post, let’s take a closer look at the Powerhouse Amuse squad of cars that was littered throughout their lot. After, we’ll move inside the shop and check out some titanium goodness.

Squad goals much?

This was actually a customer’s car that was rocking all sorts of bling, including of course, some Amuse goodies.

Some proper footwork in the Advan GT x Endless BBK combo.

One of the finest titanium exhaust out there, the R1 Titan.

Details. (Ganador side mirrors)

FT86 and GT1 S2000 on one side.

MKIV Supra on the other.

Vestito kitted on OZ Racing Hyper GTs.

Another Vestito kitted Z34, this time on Rays Engineering G50s.

Couple of demos sitting to the side.

Chaser x GT1000 R35.

GT1 meets GT1000.

All about the details in this titanium license plate holder. One of many Amuse titanium accessories.

Moving into the shop, it was actually somewhat messy in a sense, but it was the best mess that I’ve ever seen. I’m talking titanium, seats, and wheels laying all over the place!

Tips and pipes everywhere.

So much blue metal… and the best part is, you’re free to touch them; with care of course.

A magnesium wheel just laying around.

And….. of course, if you’re Powerhouse Amuse, you have credentials.

So that about sums it up for my Amuse visit. This was probably the most laid back out of all my stops and it was a sight to see all the titanium and demo cars first hand and in the flesh. And following this, my next stop is a little “secret” sanctuary of GTRs that’s also located in Chiba but first, I will have a post regarding the recently held Autocon LA show. You don’t want to miss it! Stay tuned.
