Every couple months the Empire Center in Burbank, CA. plays host to the largest gathering of local car enthusiasts in the known area. For years now this has been the premiere location for local folks to gather and drool over some of the sickest car our sub-culture has to offer. However, this past Krispy Kreme was bigger, and better then all the rest. From the initial hype to the controversial aftermath of the event this served as a permanent memory for everyone in attendance this past Wednesday night.
We apologize in advance for the lack of photographs in this coverage. What with the sheer stature of the event as well as trying to promote the blog to new readers and possible partners we rarely had time to snap photos. Jordan Adkins ended up being the official photographer to represent us for the event, and as usual the man delivered gold. With that said, enjoy the rest of our short but sweet coverage of the nights brightly lit festivities.
As many of our regular readers knows we have a lot of love for Subaru’s here at Stance Stories. I’ve never seen a set of Rotiforms on a Subaru before but this STI pulled off his concave Rotiform NUE’s better than most any other cars we have seen rocking a similar set of wheels.
I’ve been seeing these two Mitsubishi Evolution’s rolling around together at quite a few meets this past year though there similarities make them stand out, its the little things each ride has that truly makes them stand out for the ever growing sea of generic Mitsubishis in the scene today.
The Datsun 510. Probably the most sought after old school JDM car in our sub culture today. I, myself, have never been a fan of the Datsun 510 but this car changed my outlook on this class of vehicles completely. Way to make a boring old school car something truly unique and new!
Though we missed the opportunity to shoot the white R34 Skyline everyone was drooling over early in the event. We hope this R33 Skyline serves as an acceptable substitute for our Skyline portion of our coverage. Especially since the R33 is the only Skyline any of us have yet to see in person. Though it was considered the black sheep of the Skyline family there is no denying this monsters place in JDM history and legendary reputation around the world.
Krispy Kreme Tuesdays has always been a fantastic opportunity for car enthusiasts to “strut there stuff” but after a 3000+ car turn out and heavily negative coverage from KCAL 9 news it makes one wonder wether this gathering of the Gods is truly dead and gone. Burbank PD needed to call in back up from as far out as Glendale to assist in shutting down public streets and freeway ramps to ensure everyone could safely navigate to and from the meet. However, at no point did the local police department threaten to evict us from the property. I guess only time will tell what lies ahead for one of the greatest local meets we have ever seen grace the streets of Southern California.
