Spocom 2010 Long Beach Coverage…Part 3…

Back with more…more cars and even more girls…

This Sileighty belongs to Super Street Associate Editor Charles Trieu. I had no idea he owned this thing until Tony told me. Fuckin’ thing is bad ass…oh man, I walked over there  on a couple of occassions just to take a look at it again. I must be doing something wrong. I’ve done work for Super Street and I don’t own anything near this nice…haha…props all around cuz this car was probably one of my favorites of the show…

Phaze2 Tony was parked next to him in the Source Interlink booth and he ended up winning 3rd Place Acura class. Not bad for a car that hasn’t changed much this year…

1st place VIP class and with good reason…unbelieavable build…

Custom finish on the LMs…

Japanese Classic Car Show area was nice…

I saw one of these old school Skylines rolling around the streets near the venue…

Maybe I’ll build a set of custom-spec LMs in the near future…

Hmmm…

2nd place VIP class…another amazing VIP build…

Autofashion Freddie’s Yaris. Don’t be thrown off by the glossy front bumper, there’s gonna be gloss black vinyl graphics on the rest of the car when it’s finished…

More of the GS…

Overal Best of Show winner, and definitely no surprise, went to this FX45…This thing took like a year or so off from the show circuit and still came back and won it all…

Donlyson designs some interesting widebody kits…this one is…well…also interesting…

DPK David has a somewhat interesting infatuation with Jenny Chu…as you will begin to notice in later pics…

David waited around all day for her to come out and take pics with his car and she was like 2 feet away from it. When she finally came out, David realized he didn’t even have a camera and called/texted me a shitload of times so I could run over there to get pics. By the time he came and got me, she had to go to the bathroom aka drink more liquor, and we had to wait for her to come back again…

She eventually came back and then a whole mob of pervs came by to take pics of her…

…Tony from itsjdmyo was one of them…

While we waited, I walked off for a bit and got a closer look at the new TE37 limited edition wheel…

I also walked over to the Dsport model search booth where all kinds of shit was going on…

Blanka rolled through recklessly and knocked over this model…

…and then she showed off her triangle choke skills…

Big Mike explained the theory of relativity…no one listened…

Another shot of Danny’s Civic…

Big Mike’s Prelude continued to draw a crowd throughout the day…

I think I started to talk to Freddie from Autofashion at this point or something because I handed off the camera to Doug once again so he could take pictures of models…

Barrage of model pictures coming in….3….2…..1…..(these may be NWS depending on where you work…)

I feel the same way looking at this girl as I did when I saw all the Donlyson cars…=P

….I like the used tissue in the corner…haha…

When you see it…

What’s up PGK BonB…he teleported from IA for…

Okay okay, so Jenny Chu finally decided to come out and take some pictures on David’s car…so here we go…he’s been waiting for days for these pics and I think he even hung out with me the other day to make sure I would post them…haha…

I don’t think David has ever allowed another female to come in contact with his paint like this…this is monumental…

…hopefully she found the random door hangers of herself on his car to be more flattering then somewhat creepy…

After we finally got that out of the way, it was time for awards…

Only winners rock Chronicles tees…haha…Congrats Tony on another win. His garage must be filled with trophies he’ll regret having a couple years later because it’s taking up space…

Once the awards ceremony ended, they started to clear people out and cars were allowed to leave. I walked May back to her car and then I took some random shots while waiting for Tony to drive over so we could leave together…

The drive wasn’t too bad since Long Beach is only like 10-15 minutes from where I lived. It was nice to cruise on the highway alongside Tony and his NSX again. Haven’t heard that thing scream in awhile. I was still a bit iffy on how my car would drive with the new air set-up but everything was pretty smooth. It rode a lot better than I expected and I’m pretty happy with it…

I got back to the new Midnight Garage to wait for May cuz she went shopping and Matty with the orange xB was there hanging out…

I had left my Q with Ross awhile back and he drove it around and liked it so much, he ended up buying one of his own. You can see it here in the background…

Some of you guys asked for more pics of my car so here they are…

If you guys want a larger pic, here it is…

That’s about it for my end of the coverage. I actually have more behind-the-scenes pics from the show that May took with her Canon S90. I’ll probably throw those up tomorrow. It’s more or less the same stuff but more personal stuff and moments that she caught. it’s pretty cool. Thanks for looking guys. Hope you enjoyed it. Spocom 2010 was a blast, can’t wait for Nisei!…

  1. Damn, Big Mike was creepin’…. Seriously though was he trying to pull out a wedgie or what???
    Great Coverage as always, and congrats to all the winners!

    • Hahahaha. Naw man, I was just fuckin around with Doug when he took that picture. That’s just what happens when you wear baggy pants and all of a sudden decide to lean in and do a half lunge on some spur-of-the-moment type shit, lol. I was actually talking to that model here and there throughout the day. Really nice, well-spoken female.

  2. Hey something I just noticed/ realized… Big Mikes car color is pretty close to the Falken green color, and Falken is one of his sponsors right? Coincidence or what?

    • You are not the first person to say that, so let me take the time to make sure that no rumors start or that any misperceptions take hold…

      I had no relationship with the Falken Tire company when I chose the color that this car was going to be when I rebuilt it. My sponsorship/relationship with Falken started very recently, and I chose the color of my car well over a year ago. Additionally, the Falken green is not the same color at all. Falken green has more teal in it, and is a “sharper” color than mine and quite obviously so.

      I am not attacking you or anything, so please don’t take it personally. It just needed to be addressed.

  3. HAHAHA you are funny my friend. You make me seem like some kind of Perv. haha good times, thanks again for the pics. Oh BTW you are right! no one has come that close to my car, Especialy since one of the homies got his car all dented up by a model but I didnt care haha.

    Nah man, I just went to kick it just cause man. Let me know when ever you are just chillin During the week fool, Ill roll up. Well see what Nisei has in store for the King Coupe’a and models haha.

  4. Oh BTW I am lovin the ride Joey, as you know but I just want everyone else to know. Thanks to you and Ross I think I might have to get air on the GS!

  5. Awesome coverage man, David’s coupe is fire, as well as Danny’s coupe. Glad to see that car back.
    p.s. the picture of the model with Big Mike behind is priceless hahaha.
