Import Alliance Spring Meet 2013 Coverage…From Varying Perspectives…Part 2…

Today is going to be a little different than Part 1 in that we will be taking a look at an event that happened prior to the Import Alliance Spring Meet. While Anderson Rajavong took us directly into the IA coverage, our photographer for today and tomorrow, Dipesh “Super-Dipz” Gohil, takes us on an extended journey that starts at the SOUTHRNFRESH “Welcome to Atlanta” meet. The meet is an annual event that they put on the day before the Spring Import Alliance meet. It serves as a primer to the IA meet and helps to bring enthusiasts together for a good time before the big day that follows. The photos you’re looking at today actually consists of only photos from the SOUTHRNFRESH meet. Dipesh took a ton of photos that day and I’ve already consolidated them so that the pre-meet photos only take up one part of the series. I have yet to go through the rest of his IA photos but I’m gonna to try to keep it condensed to only the photos that I would normally post up on here had I taken the photos myself…

So today and tomorrow will feature the work of Dipesh Gohil and I have some more photos from one more individual who was kind enough to lend a helping hand. I don’t want the photos to get overly repetitive so I will leave out a lot of content that consists of cars you’ve seen already. I like the idea of having varying perspectives but there is a possibility that things can get a little overwhelming, especially if you are looking at the same stuff repeatedly. In any case, enjoy the photos today. After we get through the IA Spring Meet photos, I will be jumping right into the epic USDM Jam Ver. 10 photos from Japan. I’m pretty excited about those photos and I hope you are too. Okay, enough rambling, lets get going…

If you missed Part 1 of the Import Alliance Spring Meet Coverage from last week, I’ve included a link below. I’m going to switch things up a bit and leave the front page of the site limited to only one post to help with load times. If at any time you want to see more content, you can just click on the “more posts” button or search for whatever you want. You guys are smart, I’m sure you can figure it out…

Everybody get together and watch a C-West front bumper install…

Face-lift completed…

IMG_8524-Edit

Anytime I see a C-West front bumper on an Integra, I automatically think that the car needs 17-inch wheels and up. The bumper is just so big that it makes the wheels look really small. I dig these custom Stark wheels though. You rarely see them done in black without the ugly purple stickers and lettering…

Grey Civic coupe that you probably remember seeing in Anderson Rajavong’s IA Spring coverage…

IMG_8325-Edit

Can’t help but think that this S2000 would be more appropriately matched if it had a monoblock forged wheel instead of a 3-piece Work VS wheel…
