SpoCom 2009 Coverage…Part 2…

Back with part 2 of SpoCom 2009 coverage….So after I made my way back to where our group was, we decided to head out to get some food and kill some time…

We walked out of the convention center and went across the street to The Pike. I think we spent a good 15 minutes being undecisive on what to eat until we ended up at Islands…

We didn’t have to wait long before we got our table. On the way in Salem ran into the N1 Concepts guys and told them that we would stop by and check out their time attack S2000 on our way back…

The food was pretty good, I’m not gonna lie…

Armando stopped by for some fries…

As promised, we went to go check out the N1 S2000. Funny thing about this car is that it was supposed to be inside with an N1 Concepts booth but it like ran out of gas or something and got stuck outside. Haha. Shits sick though. I never got to take a really close look at it until SpoCom. It’s the real deal…

Headed back inside and decided to walk around and take some more pics. Here’s Nitt’s S2000. I actually took like 4-5 pics of this car but they all came out pretty whack and this was the best shot I had…

Clean ITR that was near us…

Saw this guys staring at Brian’s RSX for a while…

This is the same hatch that I saw at the JTuned meet a couple months back. Definitely an interesting color and with a K under the hood…

Flat-white RSX…

A couple other shots of Salem and Brian’s rides since there weren’t too many Hondas at the show…

Salem showing Dude Blvd how it’s really done. Hot Stuff Intl. is the original male exploitation crew son….Get your game right…

Then it came time for awards…

From what I remember off the top of my head, Sheepey won Best Acura and 2nd place JDM class, Nasif won 1st place Honda, and Mikeyyyy won 3rd place JDM. The guy wasn’t even by the stage when they announced it so he had no idea he won. We had to get Sid up there to pick up the award and he didn’t even believe us at first and was hesitant to go on stage….

I guess Mikeyyyy was happy about it. Probably more confused than anything haha….Tina seemed to enjoy it though…

That was about it as far as Hondas go. I’ll just throw in some random non-Honda content since I was messing around with the camera and took pics of shit that caught my eye…

The 5Axis GS is so sick…damn…I things I would do to this car. I would take it out for a nice dinner, walk it back to the door, and treat it respectfully….haha…Anyways, things is crazy. So many subtle touches…

This is my boy Billy’s IS300. It got fuckin’ robbed at SpoCom too. No Lexus class two years in a row? Makes no damn sense. How are you gonna have every class imaginable including a JDM class but not have classes that cover all makes? Lexus class is pretty important. I don’t know much about car shows but I think the Lexus turn-out is definitely evident….

This female-owned TC is ridiculous…It used to be pink I believe….

Still waiting for more done-up Yaris’…Such cool little cars…especially the 5-door hatchbacks…

This bike at the Heavy Hitters booth was fuckin crazy. Supercharged with Killerglass gas tank and hard pipes…

Thought I’d throw in a Skyline pic…I took this while I was snapping pics of the Spoon’d out black S2k…

The chinese in me says I want this badly. Love the wheels and stance. Someday…okay, probably never…but maybe…when its like 2021 and these things go for 2k haha…

Baddest GS out there right now…I’m callin it. Everything about this build is incredible….

Biggest kitsuna I have ever seen in my life…You can beat someone’s ass with that rope or perform some auto-erotic asphixiation with that shit…yeah I know too soon…=/

Gonna make like a fetus and get outta here….Looking forward to next year’s Spocom…

I’m out….

  1. Man, Billy’s luck is horrible! They “forgot” his award at TORC and now SpoCom has no Lexus class?! He deserves better treatment than this!

    And yeah, that’s Tina’s tC. You are correct, it was pink. It was recently painted only a month or so ago.

  2. Hi, I’m the owner of the flat white tC (yep, previously pink, & far too shitty). My friend linked me here since my car was posted. I had never heard of “The Chronicles” but I’ll definitely be checking it out for more of your coverage/work. Props for interesting writing & quality photography.

    By the way, I heard you’re hard to impress so I’m stoked you liked my tC, definitely a compliment I’ll take to heart. ;D

      • Nope, not Yukio. But you knowing him makes me wonder if me & you have met?

        Travis with the Honda Fit told me you’re hard to impress. Not sure if you guys know each other or not.

      • Oh yeah, Travis with the Fit. No we haven’t met. I just remember Yukio telling me about the car one time when he was showing with your group…
