Spocom 2010 Long Beach Coverage…Part 1…

Fiiiiiinally…What a week…From finishing up my own car to getting down to LBC early in the am for roll-in and then the eventual show. I honestly gotta say, this was probably the best Spocom show yet. I just liked how everything was very professional and organized. No bullshit, no drama, nothing…just good times. The roll-in process was really easy, the judging was (for the most part) on par, and the awards ceremony couldn’t have gone any smoother. I like how they have people waiting on hand already to receive their awards. Nobody had to wait around for the winners to hear their names and run up on stage and hold everyone up. The cars were good, but damn, there seriously was more females than show cars. Girls were everywhere…so much so that I kinda just handed the camera off to my boy Doug so he could go on the prowl to get pics of models. Unlike the usual event coverage here, there’s gonna be more girls this time around, whereas in the past, I didn’t do much of the model pictures. There were just so many of them that it was almost more interesting to see them do their thing than to concentrate on the cars around. We weren’t really concerned with winning so it was just a good chill time hanging out with the homies…

I know some of you on here will be wondering how we ended up here instead of going to Nashville for IA. Well the reason behind that is because, well simply put, we were all just too busy. I’ve been loaded up with work, other guys had more important things going on, and some of us were even moving from one place to the other so money and time was just short. It didn’t seem like a good idea to head out there this year. Maybe 2011, who knows. I’ve seen pics from IA and it looked like a good time. Spocom was also fun and without any further discussion about it, here are part 1 of the pics…

The Auto Concept guys couldn’t be more inviting. They had a great display set-up that eventually won “Best Display” at the show and it was cool to park with those guys. They are cool people and I couldn’t have asked for more from them. We had the Phaze2 guys as well as a couple other top Honda heads along hand with us to show with Auto Concept and everything looked great once we put it all together…

Some of the pics came out like ass but I was so busy running around all day trying to catch up with everyone that I didn’t get to stand in one solid place for a long time to get great pictures. I didn’t even get a chance to get a shot of the whole Auto Concept display…yeah I know, I fucked up…

Abraham from Infinit Wheels actually placed in the Honda class…congrats dude…

Was a little surprised Arnel didn’t place as well but he wasn’t even around all day when the judges were there so I guess it’s expected. He doesn’t care either way, haha so its all good…

DPK JP showing in his own hometown…

DC5 Brian who might have took home an award as well if he still had his boost set-up. The RSX from Emotion that placed was very similar in many ways to this car, he just had a giant turbo set-up and custom paint…

Anthony from Infinit Wheels with his RHD CR-X…

More Abraham…

His new tucked brake lines and what not…

Quick shot of my Q…

One of the baddest Minis on Earth…

I haven’t seen a girl pose next to a CR-X for a photo since like 1998 haha…

Oh man, Anthony asked me to take pics of Abraham and his car with this young lady for some flyer he was doing but the pictures came out booty as hell. Pictures look good in this size but definitely not for print format…=P

Not the girl up top, this one…

Man…so disappointed…coulda been some great shots…haha…

The model area right across from the Falken booth…

I haven’t seen PlusOne Danny’s Civic coupe since last year at Nisei. Actually, the car hasn’t even been out since then because it’s been at multiple shops awaiting completion. I guess it’s finally starting to come together so Danny brought it out…

As a vinyl guy, I can appreciate some good graphics. This is gold leaf, on chameleon vinyl, with a white base….you think there’s money in this car, imagine how much was in the graphics alone…$$$ haha…shit, that gold leaf is bananas…

Another car I haven’t seen in awhile…Lisa Uchida’s multiple (MULTIPLE) award winning Supra…

The old man in this picture can predict the future. He’s staring at the exact spot where Jenny Chu will later lean all over DPK David’s car…

Big Mike’s Prelude and his new SE37Ks…Came out looking way better than I thought it would, I must admit…

Awesome display that I showed you guys earlier in the preview pics…

“Someone” said… “it’s not supposed to tuck…” which makes me very worried that this whole “flush” thing is getting out of hand….haha…I love wide wheels and stance but fuck it, I’ll lay my car on the floor all fucking day…;)

Dougie takes over here with the girl shots…

I was surprised by the total lack of personal space in this conversation…

…so I joined in…

Then Doug ran off for awhile and got more girl pics…

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..tits…

Novella Nikita…

…titties so big…

…I can see them from the back…haha…

That’s all for today…fuck man, so disappointed in these pics…shoulda used the other lense….More tomorrow guys…thanks for looking…
