An Ashy Day at the Norm Reeves 2008 Car Show…


The Phaze2XDoods! fam bam and I headed out to check out the 3rd annual Norm Reeves Honda Superstore Car Show in Cerritos and it was a very ashy day as expected due to the crazy ass fires that have been going on through out socal…

This was basically what the sky looked like throughout the day, everything just looked very eerie…

A bunch of us had our painter’s masks or whatever we could find to keep from inhaling the giant strands of ash falling from the sky…Leave it to the hardcore Honda-heads to come out to an event when we’re in a state of emergency…

As you can see the ash was everywhere. It was hard to keep a car clean for more than 5 min at a time…

Like last year there was a big presence of old school classic Honda vehicles. The majority of the Honda N/Z cars were all in mint condition and the owners seem like a very tight group of people. They are not “CVCC’s” okay? I hear people saying that all the time. The CVCC’s are later model Honda’s. There was one there but all I hear are people saying: “Oh cool, CVCC’s!”.

One of the first things that caught my eye was this Odyssey when it was making it’s way into the event. The owner is like a older filipino dad and he brought like his whole family out. Like a horde of kids came out of there…haha. Unique to say the least, even had the “Lagreat” badge in the rear…

I see this S2000 at a majority of the events I go to and I stop to stare at it every single time. It’s executed beautifully. You know how there are some people out there that just buy a bunch of expensive shit and throw it on a car? Well this isn’t one of them. The owner took his time and put this thing together perfectly. It wins like at every event too and it’s very deserving…

Another guy I regularly run into is Nasif and his 8th gen. Civic. He always manages to come out with something new. This time he rolled out with some concave mag-blue TE37’s up front. 17×9 with offsets in the 30’s if I remember correctly. I wish I would have remembered but I have hearing problems and the memory of an old lady. Nasif’s Civic is crazy though. So unassuming cuz of it’s white exterior but if you look closer there isn’t a part of this thing that hasn’t been modified in some way…

I ran into Big Mike aka Big Mitch with his big ass jug of water and his Prelude. Rumor has it that Big Mike started the fires just so he could be cool and wear a bandana over his face and have an excuse to not wash his car…

Here’s Big Mitch’s polished Volk AV3’s. If you tell them they’re Konig’s he’ll take you out to sushi and not pay for it. Notice the chrome NSX calipers….

Bisi Ezerioha was out hanging out with everyone and brought out his drag Insight. Man, I wish I could be sponsored by Outback Steakhouse. Wonder what that sponsorship includes…

The good people over at Norm Reeves was also kind enough to cook and hand out free burgers and hot dogs for the crowd that came out to support the event even with all the fires going on…

They also gave out alot of free stuff too. On a sidenote, this guy who I will deem “Super Saiyan Goku” also made an appearance…

Salem and his Honda Tuning cover TSX was right up front for everyone to see. I didn’t really mess with the colors in this pic so you guys can see what it really looked like throughout the day. It literally looked like someone was shining a huge orange spotlight over the entire event…

If Norm Reeves has anything that other shows don’t, they definitely attract all kinds of different Honda owners that add “variety” to the event….Yeah…

and the rest are just some other random images we caught while we were walking around…

Gotta represent! Haha…thanks to the homies for rockin’ the vinyl…

Wish we could have taken more pics/better pics but the sky made everything hard to shoot…

One thought

  1. Deff not the type of flakes you wanna see on your car haha. Stay safe ppl in cali & I hope the fires don’t get to you or your ride.

    Great pics!! Great stuff!
