Event: Wekfest 2012 – Fort Mason, San Francisco v.3

.

By now I’m sure there is extensive coverage of this show up on every forum, blog, and auto site across the entire internet – so let me first thank you for sticking with NDF.  There are a grip of sites out there to get content from, but I want you to know that, although new, NDF is here to stay.  From where we are now, we can only get better.  So I’ve gone through hundreds of photos and it looks like I still have two or three posts left for this show.  Most car shows I just breeze through because I end up seeing the same stuff over and over; but since I don’t go to shows in the Bay area that often (I don’t go to care shows that often anyway; although I may attend more than I think!), I really got to see a lot of different things not from So-Cal.  Enough with the talk, let’s get into some more coverage!  I got some interesting stuff in this post, so click past the break for part three of NDF goes to Wekfest SF.

I posted a pic of this teal EK in the first round of photos, but didn’t quite do it justice.  Among other things, the engine bay was simply immaculate.  I was really digging the Bomex mirrors too!

There’s a good possibility I could skip around quite a bit in this post, so if the coverage seems a little off I apologize.  This J’s Racing themed Integra was across the way from the IMPRM booth where the teal EK sat.  I drove a car exactly like this in Initial D v.3, only mine was white!  Did anyone else play that game?  We had it in the arcade at my University, so I logged a lot of late night hours racing the other students.  Actually, looking at it now brings back a lot of memories! hahaha

This white TSX came all the way from So-Cal and was parked next to Big Mikes Prelude.  It’s always been a favorite of mine and it does see some track time.  You can check out a lot more pics of it on Joey’s blog The Chronicles (which I’m sure you’ve alreay done!).

This old school Corolla was on point.  It was rocking a totally period correct paint scheme and wheel choice.  The only thing not year correct was the immaculate F swap, complete with ITB’s.  Really cool car that I’m hoping didn’t get overlooked.  I bet it’s a blast to drive!

My jaw dropped to the floor when I saw this IS-F.  Angie and I literally couldn’t stop staring at it.  Out of all the IS’s at the show, this was by far our favorite.  It’s just so mean looking!  The 20″ forged, Klassen CFV’s have just the right amount of concave.  They matched the matte black perfectly as well.

One more shot for good measure.  Check out the guys on the left – you know they like it too.

.

.

There were quite a few EVO’s at the show, as it is a very popular platform.  This was just one of dozens that looked great.

A couple more shots of the RWB x Fatlace Porsche on custom Rotiform wheels.  I can’t believe how fast RWB has caught on in the states.  It’s good to see Nakai-san can keep up with the extra business.  I mean, one or two years ago, fucking NOBODY here knew about RWB.

Model line-up and one great EVO (haha – love that plate [ab]).

Some asian dude taking a picture of some purple high-heels on a very purple Kouki as two people watch, one big guy sleeps in a chair, and one guy drinks a NOS.

The DJ at the IMPRM booth was playing some pretty good tracks – and I usually dislike car show music.  He was so good he could do it in his sleep.

.

.

This Integra was awesome, and I was a little bummed it was parked outside.  I would have liked to grab a few shots of it not in such harsh sunlight.

.

.

This was on the way out; I wasn’t actually leaving, just going out for a smoke.  There were a lot of good cars outside that I’m afraid might have gotten looked over.  I spent some time outside though because it was such an awesome day that I wanted to enjoy the sun.

.

.

By this time the line was getting absolutely ridiculous.  There must have been literally thousands of people waiting in line.  Keep in mind I’m on the street in front of Fort Mason, and the line wrapped from the doors all the way back through the park.  I’m guessing a lot of these people didn’t get to get in, which sucks.  So I gave a grip of stickers to people in the back of the line to try and make up for a little bit of their shitty situation.

.

.

On the way back towards the grounds, I spotted this beautiful 370Z.  Absolutely perfect! The picture even came out all dramatic with the sun flare…

.

.

I saw the Stance Lab E-Class on the way back in too; so I took this horrible picture of it.  It looks relatively unchanged from when I saw it last – still boss though.

.

.

Saw this guy at the pre-meet in Fremont as well.  The Far East Movement was chilling behind it.

.

.

Another shot of the Amuse themed S2K from the first post.  This time with much better coloring!  I really liked the cars lined up outside – it alleviated the sardine feel in the buildings.  The guys at Wekfest might want to consider making this a two day event in the future.  Although I’m not sure of the cost involved in that…

.

.

While I was taking this super generic picture of some cars, I noticed Linhbergh from Speedhunters goofing around with the Mayday guys.  I thought I’d walk over and say hello.

.

.

…so fashionable…

I’ll wrap up v.3 of Wekfest SF 2012 with this shot of Market from Powell station.  This is later in the day, but thought it would make a nice ending for this part of the coverage.  I hope you’re enjoying the coverage so far, and thanks for visiting!  Stay tuned because there is a whole lot more where this came from – including a look from a different perspective ;P  Have an awesome day!
