Event: Wekfest San Jose 2014 – V.2
Making my way around the hall of the San Jose convention center, there was a lot of different builds that caught my eye. I really liked the consistency of this Spoon themed EG.
Next to it was another EG on Work RSZ-R’s; a wheel you don’t really see around too often anymore.
Rocket Bunny 86.
The bubbly, LB GTR that we saw at Autocon LA a few months back.
I really enjoyed this Liberty Walk E92. Despite it’s crazy wide body, it had an air of simplicity to it that I found intriguing. I actually like the yellow, which is strange because I typically don’t prefer them, but I think this would look amazing in black or a deep blue.

Another GTR with the RB kit; this one looking a little more aggressive than the white one.
Clean DB8 on TE37SL’s.
Algier’s EVO; which I believe took home 1st place in the EVO category. Looks great in the new green.
Pretty crazy engine work on this EJ.
STi on Volk’s new ZE40.
It was about this time that I needed a break from the whole car show thing. I walked down Markest Street, and in front of the Cesar Chavez Plaza there are a couple cool restaurants and cafes. I grabbed some coffee and a sandwich at this one joint.
Then I remember Huy mentioning that there was a Muji close by as well, so I decided to walk around and find it. Muji in Japanese translates to ‘plain’, and that’s basically what they sell; really plain, somewhat simplistic stuff. I’ve only been to them in Japan and actually had no idea they had US stores.
I liked this chaise a lot, but it’s not like I could fit in on an airplane.
OK, well, I suppose I should get back on topic.
Back inside I ran into Brendan who drove his MK4 up from Socal. I didn’t know he was going to show his car here, so it was a nice surprise seeing him.
His car isn’t your normal Supra; it’s got a high comp NA 2JZ. Quite the non-typical route to tuning a 2J.
This Subaru was completely wrapped in carbon vinyl.
I have to go to work, be back with a couple more shots tonight.
