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…


Spocom SF 2017 [MoMo’s Top Picks Part 1]

Ahhhhh, finally a new post on the site after a month long hiatus… I’ve been spending a lot of time lately doing landscape photography and haven’t attended any automotive events in awhile which resulted in the lack of updates on the site. So… since Spocom SF was local to me, I decided to head out to Alameda to get some coverage of the event. Normally, I would try to do some pretty extensive coverage on shows but I’ve decided to just do “Top Picks” posts from now on instead of full on event coverages. This helps keep posts short and sweet rather than quantity focused. Hope you guys like this new approach to my posts because I’d like to continue to focus on quality rather than quantity. With that said, let’s check out some photos!

As I was walking toward the venue, I spotted this beautiful Supra and got to chit chat with the owner for a bit.

I believe this Voltex Evo took best of show, which was well deserved in my opinion. I love the resemblance to the time attack Cyber Evo.

Another favorite of mine is this Overtake full carbon GTR.

Very clean Lexus IS300 on Work Emotion XD9; Clean builds are always welcome on this site.

I gotta say I’m not a fan of V8 RX7s but these two are pretty clean, and that turbo’d Rocket Bunny one is just straight crazy.

This J’s Racing S2000 was pretty dirty but it did have some nice authentic parts on the car. I was surprised that J’s Racing actually had a full booth at the show.

Generation gap, but both of these Civics are equally clean.

240/180s should look something like this, they don’t need to have mismatched body panels and replica wheels.

It feels like this Cayman GT4 is at every event, but that’s okay cause it’s very pleasing to the eyes.

So, this about wraps up part 1 of my top picks at Spocom SF, second part will probably be up sometime tomorrow. See you guys then!
