Event: It’s JDM Yo! 1st Anniversary Meet v.2

.

Welcome back to the second part of the It’s JDM Yo! meet coverage.  The sites traffic has been way up recently, I’d like to thank everyone who checks the site regularly.  I’ll be getting some merchandise together soon too, so everyone that’s been interested in it, hold on just a little longer!  Anyway, after we checked out what was in the outside lot, we ventured into the main warehouse building.  They put up a DJ in almost every room in the warehouse, playing different music.  I thought that was pretty sweet.  Check out the pics past the break.

A lot of the regular so-cal guys made it out to Cerritos.  The CR-Z C-West kit is close to perfection.

.

.

The Honda Tuning CR-Z has been making it’s rounds for awhile now.  I never get tired of shooting it though.

Some more of the regular show-goers.

I love shooting in this type of light.  Vivid colors that are against black backgrounds seem to pop more than ever.  This bay is absurd.

.

.

Combo breaker.

.

.

The EK flagship.  Seriously, how many pictures of this car exist on the internet right now?

.

.

Classic look.

My apologies for the lack of commentary this time around.  I’m still partially asleep, and I have to leave for work in an hour – so I’m trying to post this up in a hurry.

NSX-spec Rega’s – white on white.

Old School.  If you own a Japanese car that was built in the 70’s or any time before, it should be mandatory that you have fender mirrors.

.

.

I remember this guy from Nisei week last year – I might have even done a little close up on his Kouki.  Doesn’t look like the ride has changed much, but it’s still looking good.

Making our way back towards the other rooms…

.

.

Always excited to see a clean B-series swap; and this is about the cleanest it gets.

.

.

Through the door and into the next room we were greeted by a plethora of VIP inspired cars.  I have no idea what happened to the white balance on this shot.

.

.

.

Some pretty crazy VIP rides are starting to appear in the states.  Like many niche automotive trends, this was once only seen in Japan.  Now parts manufactures are making their goods more available to the states, as it quickly became an acceptable market.  You still don’t see builds as crazy as in the island, but we’re getting there.

.

.

I’ve never really been super interested in VIP builds, but I’ve always appreciated them.  I like saying, ‘damn!, that’s pretty crazy.’  VIP rides, done right, are gangster no doubt.

.

.

I’m going to sneak one more Honda into this post, only because it was in the same room.

.

.

Crispy bay.  I like that purple color.

.

.

It’s always cool to see parents bringing out the next generation of auto enthusiasts to these shows.  It’s also cool of the promoters to make these shows family friendly.  That’s it for part 2, I’ll try and get part 3 up before I leave up North after work tonight.  No promises though.
