A Nostalgic Moment….Pics from 99-2000….

So I went down to San Diego today to my parents house to help them set-up their new Samsung 1080P flat-screen TV and I was in my old room looking at my old stuff. Next to all my old Super Street and Import Tuner magazines was a photo album. I look inside and much to my delight were photographs from all the old car shows I used to attend back in 1999 and 2000. We’re talking like Import Showoff Del Mar, back when Showoff and HIN used to be the shit and were the biggest shows in San Diego. I still remember those events, 3 buildings filled to the brim, cars outside, massive amounts of people, chicks getting naked…the works…This is back before it got REALLY commercialized and still had a bit of an underground feel to it. Even though it was a massive production, it wasn’t nearly as huge as it is now. I also have pics from the first two Extreme Autofest events in SD….haha…chicks got down at those bikini contests, I have the pics to prove it! Haha, can’t believe the people at Vons used to develop these pics. I remember I was still in high school and I used to carry a backpack with me and my mom’s old hand held 35mm camera. Looking back now, man shit was waaaayyy different back then. I’m actually kinda excited to go through this album and show you guys pics. Sorry for the cellphone shots but I just got home from SD and I am so tired. When I get the chance, I’ll scan the pics and get them up here….Alot of the cars will probably conjure up memories that you had thought were gone…

…Powerban!! Haha, remember this Integra owned by a girl? If I remember correctly, she used to do shows with her boyfriend who had a baby blue Civic coupe…

…I think I still know the guy that built this thing. I think he worked at ARD Performance cuz I always used to see it there. B.J., who works at Pann now was working at ARD back in the day too when he had his flesh-colored CRX! haha…

…Goldfish in the headlights?! WTFLOLBBQ?!!! Haha, I remember walking around Hot Import Nights San Diego and I saw this and I couldn’t believe it. “What the fuck?” were the words I think I muttered. Talk about unique…..this guy used his headlights as a fish tank…I wonder how that worked out for him…haha…

Anyways, I’ll get some pics in better quality up in the next couple days…should be interesting!
