Formula Drift #TechDay2014
Import Tuner and Super Street held a meet for their annual Formula Drift Tech Day down in Irvine, CA. I spent the whole morning debating whether I wanted to come or not, and finally decided in the afternoon that I would take the trip down. I unfortunately came late to the party (as I was told), and missed out on some of the cool cars that were at the event before I came. Bummer. I still however got to see some other dope cars and got to meet some new people.
This is Super Street’s Rocket Bunny FRS.
I have been seeing this LS430 all over social media. It’s one thing to see photos of cars on the internets, but it’s another thing to see them in person. Chris Pine did a great job bringing a taste of Japanese VIP styling here to Southern California.
Keith’s Accord. Not sure if this is the same one as before.
Amir’s StanceWorks sponsored time attack E36. I got to catch Amir weaving through cars on my way back home. Photos are at the end of this post.
My friend Jeno’s Toyota Camry.
Here’s another car that I have been eyeing on the internet. Martin’s Lexus GS from Liberty VIP. I have always wanted to see this even before he moved down from the east coast to down here in Southern California. Glad I finally got to see it at this meet. Great to meet you Martin!
The Homie, Johnne’s, newly wrapped E60. Follow him on his Instagram (@e60daddy) as he is constantly teasing pics of his new setup!
Negative Stance’s Civic.
As I was walking around, I didn’t pay too much to this as I THOUGHT it was a Datsun 510 (no offense to 510 owners. I love 510’s :P). However, as I got up closer to take a photo of it, I realized it was a Honda Accord! I have never seen one in such great condition. Props to the owner for such a clean car for its age.
Evan’s 2JZ powered Cressida from Club Audacious.
Shameless posting of my car next to Evan’s :P
Matt’s 240sx. Follow him on Instagram (@limitphotography) for car event coverages and also look up Limit Photography on Facebook!
I got to somewhat cruise with this Lexus GS, or Aristo, and his friend’s S30 as I was driving back home and got a few photos of them rolling. Photos are at the end of the post.
Love this RX7. Hate that the sun had to cast a shadow from the tree.
Leaving the meet.
Got another photo of the Accord. Owner knows he’s fresh in his ride.
Here are the S30 and the GS that I got to roll around with for a good amount of time on the freeway.
PSA: Don’t take pictures while driving lol.
Also caught this IS300 and gave a nod to him as he passed me by.
Caught Amir on the 57.
Thanks to Import Tuner and Super Street and all other hosts for hosting this meet!
