Pleasanton AutoMall Car Show
At 12:30 noon, I get a text from Arie asking where I was parked.. Parked? What are you talking about, I wrote back. Pleasanton Automall car show.. everyone is here.. Then it dawned on me that I have wasted my entire morning lounging around the house nor helping the wife clean and the car show was happening right in my backyard. So I quickly made my way over to Omega Werks, picked up the boyz, snuck up the rear entrance, and parked the LS.
Quickly I realized the amount of cars present were of top quality not to mention of the different makes and models all together jiving for the love of the automotive industry.
Check out the coverage for yourself:
This Honda Odessey was blasting crazy beat, a lip kit, chopped springs and 20" wheels. I know less than a handfull of VANS in the Bay Area.. sure makes me wanna build one:
Ryan's super clean RSX was sporting a full MUGEN kit and traditional HART wheels. Next, I need to pursuade him on steplip and lower offset.
Status Elite was on hand with their ridiculous Z06 that is boosting almost 600hp. You gotta hear this machine, incredible.
CCW on a Pantera. The latest HONDA movement!!
One of the nicest cars at the show was this VW MK2 Golf rocking a set of 1983 BBS RS wheels, original Recaro seats and a full restoration. I love how the gen2's all had extreme fender arches already in the body. If only it had a bit more stretch and about 2" inches lower.. HAWT
To continue the VW love, check out this ultra rare '65 Utility BUS complete with OEM roof rack, Mag5 wheels, a full Wilwood bbk system and Airride. It truly doesn't get any better than this.
This replica '65 Cobra was begging to be driven. The owner took top honors in the Domestic category. Funny he was a Japanese guy with lots of Domestic love.
Three guys that need not any introductions.. Joseph @ Tire Outlet, Vincent @ Omega Werks, and Bruce @ Nomura Tuning and Design.
Super clean G37 with SSR Professor MS1 in 20's.. Joseph says it will take 4 months to acquire.
SSBC 6-piston BBK stopping power:
Don, the proud owner of the stainless steel vinyl wrapped BMW 335 educates interested by-standards about the laminate process and dry-wrapping.
PhotoShootMyCar was killing time playing BS while Stella worked on her Area51 foil pants.. no no, she ran half a marathon that morning and still came to support her husband in the freezing cold. Jeff and Chad were promoting their car show plaques, photos, designed, framed and all, for $350. They were also reaping for Heavy Hitters magazine with their GT-R R33 Vspec II and the All show Matrix rocking 285s in the rear.
Out of nowhere came this ridicous Datsun 510 with a complete SR20DET motor swap, upgraded intake manifold, turbo, SSR wheels, Brembo calipers, Endless 2-piston brakes, a full Recaro interior and stunning blue paint.
A pair of super clean EK hatches with traditional wheel offsets:
There were an entire roll of CB7 Accords. Check out this ultra clean H22A swap, JDM black housing headlights, Mugen grill, 5Zigen wheels, NSK calipers and shaved door moldings.. not to mention the "Illest" decal. HAWT setup!!
Joesph and the only US TOM's supercharged IS350. Fully backed with SSR Viena wheels, Endless 6/4 BBK, ZEAL coilovers, JDM fogs, a $15k sound system and it sits in the garage… Damn you for having too much $$$.
Scott and Agie drove out from Livermore with their his and her Japanese and Domestic muscle machines. Scott has a track ready Datsun 280Z with a complete 350 cubic inch swap, Wilwood brakes, 10.5 and 11.5 wide wheels and a full racing cage ready to take on the 2010 season. Agie has a full Saleen Mustang. Both are regulars at the Goodguys events.
@po Crew came all the way from SF with their hella aggressive fitment cars: A E46, twin EVO9 and a RX8. These guys were just featured on Hellaflush. I especially appreciated the "Hag Gow" license plate. Sweet cars indeed.
Nasty A4 was featured on GoWithSolo awhile back. He was on-hand with another A4 reaping the AUDI world. DPE wheels and BREMBOS = YUMMY
Fixed Gears.. sweet handle bars and gold accents.
Lastly I leave you with this, he is new, just hired blocks away before entering the show.. the cleaning crew.
