Early Sunday morning we met up with our friend from MediaJunkies and LegitMotion to roll out to the Spocom Pre-Show at K1 Speedway in Anaheim. With the exclusion of a gang of less than quiet bikers, and the average handful of ricers… The SpocCom pre-show turned out a fantastic turnout that wielded some heavy hitters, much like the BN-R32 Skyline you see on the cover. Read on for all the cars, all the rice, and all the fun that you might have missed at this years Spocom Pre Show!
In the spirit of America’s birthday we thought we’d start our coverage off with this gorgeous orange Volkswagen GTI on air ride and Rotiform NUEs. This poor serviceman rolled all the way Edwards Airforce Base but couldn’t get there early enough to find parking inside the event. This was one of the few hidden gems scattered around the grounds that day that most didn’t notice.
Our boy Mr. Romo and the rest of the Import Fashion crew rolled deep as usual, and in true Import Fashion style stole the show with there display, there gorgeous ladies, and there individual cars. Import Fashion. Bringing sexy back.
Robbie Torres rolled from Diamond Bar to rep the Dubbers in his MK1 Cabriolet GTI with some insane camber and an authentic rusted hood. No vinyl wrap here.
Getting tired of fitment? Were not! Just in case, we spotted this gorgeous GC-chasis Subaru 5-door wagon sporting a serious mouth piece. Would have really loved to take a peak under the hood.
The 240′s rolled deep as usual. Full of quality and RB-swapped goodness. As accustomed to most local meets now-a-days it was almost impossible to spin your head without spotting a 240s somewhere in the lot that day, but no complaints on our end! Nothing but quality pieces all around.
As usual the folks at Its JDM Yo!!! rolled out with some quality work. There Acura NSX was refitted with 24k dipped wheels since the last time we saw it, and the S2000 on Work VS’s was quite the head turner as well.
It seems that every time Mike Vo turns up to a meet I attend, my jaw drops. Even the simplest of mods make this car look drastically more exciting and appealing. I quite frankly have run out of nice things to say about this car. Congrats Mike, your car is the first to leave me speechless.
To be perfectly honest, I was getting pretty sick of the Scion FR-S. I know most will scream blasphemy, but all that changed when I spotted this Cusco built Scion FR-S sitting around the corner of the lot. Dear Lord does this car look like one mean machine. I would not want to be caught on the business end of it.
SpoCom has always been known as one of the most high-end car shows to roll through Southern California. The pre-show this year was no exception. The food was great, the turnout was astounding, and the ladies… Well if you weren’t there then quite frankly you don’t even deserve to know. We are so glad we went and are looking forward to the actual show coming in August.
