This past weekend Justin, who runs Autocon, messaged me about a trailer they were shooting in Los Angeles for the upcoming Autocon event on June 1st. It was last minute, so I couldn’t make it to all the locations, but I did manage to come out to one spot to take a couple shots and say hi. It was a good way to spend an afternoon, and I got to meet some nice people. Being involved with the media in shows like Autocon is a good way for me to stay grounded to import scene here in the US; So-Cal specifically. I spend a lot of time and energy covering the Japanese lifestyle, and as a result I miss out on the things happening here. So, I’m happy to be able to say I’m involved in a show like this. I had a tight schedule that weekend so I wasn’t able to stay for long, but please enjoy what I was able to cover.
Thao’s car was setup with a rig for the film crew to get some rolling footage, so afterwards I took a couple pics of it.
The theme of the trailer is going to be “white”, so all cars in attendance were some shade of white. Patrick’s Veilside NSX was a nice addition.
Pretty cool widebody EVO.
Miguel’s EVO X.
Nice 240Z that I wish was lower.
Very cool S2000 with some nice ASM parts.
Overall some really nice cars made it out – I can’t wait to see how the trailer turned out. They shot at many locations for a few days so there should be a good variety of scenes. Enjoy ~
