Autocon 2012 Coverage…Part 2…

IMG_1741

Back now with part 2 of the Autocon 2012 coverage… I’m happy to see that everyone is enjoying the coverage even though there seems to be an overabundance of coverage coming out all at the same time from various sites…

For those of you wondering or who heard rumors, there was indeed in accident at Autocon 2012. A pretty crazy one too in fact, I don’t know all the details on it but when I originally heard them announce it on stage, I didn’t really think anything of it. It just sounded like a minor fender bender in the parking lot but after going home and seeing some photos of it, it was anything but “minor”. I’m not going to try to discuss what caused the accident because I don’t know. The only account I have read about it is from one of the guys that was involved in the accident. I believe he was the one that t-boned the E92 BMW that eventually ended up slamming into 3 other cars. You gotta see the photos because it’s pretty wild. Random to hear about an accident like this in the parking lot of a car show but hey, it just shows that anything can happen at any time. Be careful out there folks and stay alert. Here is the driver’s account of the accident from his Tumblr account…

“I was going back to autocon, I was going north in the parking lot, then there was this white E92 going south, so I was going straight but the white E92 turned left right in front of me. I slammed my brakes but it locked and it didn’t slow me down that much. Slamming my brakes caused my car to turn right a little bit and I t-boned the E92 on accident, so then the E92 crashed into 3 other cars which are the EVO 9, Scion IQ, and another white beamer. So that’s basically what happened at autocon :(“

In his statement I didn’t see one mention of his rate of speed or speed of the other car, but somebody had to have been going a little too quick to cause this accident in a parking lot filled with cars. Anyways…

If you want to see photos from the accident, CLICK HERE. There are other photos from the event but scroll to the bottom to see the accident photos. If you’re mobile, just scroll left to right…

With that said, I don’t think there is anything pressing in regards to my thoughts on Autocon or anything else that happened during the event so I’ll just jump straight into the photos…

I often make fun of how overused CCW Classics are on Hondas but I actually really like how the wheel looks and how they look on non-Hondas. Here’s a Lotus on a set of Classics and it’s a good look…

Ms. Titla McBoob aka Xena Kai… Tony from It’s JDM Yo!! tells me that she actually knows I call her this and she’s okay with it, haha. She actually is very nice from the times I’ve encountered her and it’s cool that she’s a good sport about it…

IMG_1684

Speaking of Ms. McBoob, here is the creepy ass old man that was posing with her when I first spotted her last year at Spocom 2011… This guy seems to have a uncurable case of the Yellow Fever because he just can’t seem to stay away from these young Asian girls who model at shows. He doesn’t ever seem to be there at shows to look at cars and the girls know the guy by name… Fucking. Creepy. In the photo with him is Marissa Hiroko…

She spotted me taking a photo of her so she blew a kiss my way…I’m not single so I casually ducked down and avoided it, but thank you for the gesture. The sweaty dude behind me that got nailed with the airborne kiss O-faced immediately. If I were single and horny, this would have been my response…

I’ve always loved Racing Hart CPF Tune-R wheels and I’m happy that someone is still rocking them… Very underrated wheel after Rays Engineering/Volk Racing took control of the market and made the Racing Hart brand forgettable…

More Titla since you guys seem to be searching for her so often… Yes, I can see what you guys typically search for and the name constantly pops up. More so than her actual modeling name, haha…
