Import Alliance Spring Meet 2014 Coverage…A Few Quick Snaps…Part 2….

What’s up everyone… I was finally able to procure some more photos from this year’s IA Spring Meet and after going through the Formula D Long Beach photos, I was finally able to find time to post them up. This time around, I didn’t have to do any editing because our guest photographer for the day, Brady Lankford, already did all of the hard work for me. Brady is a first-timer here over on The Chronicles but I was happy that he contacted me because he’s got some skills. I really enjoyed his work and was happy to post them up. The guy took so many photos that it ended up being distributed to a number of different media outlets but luckily, he was able to save some for The Chronicles…

Like I said in my previous IA post, I wish I could tell you more about it but I wasn’t able to attend. I had originally planned on going but work was just so crazy during those two weeks that I just wasn’t able to. Thanks to Eric Badis and Brady Lankford, we all get an opportunity to see what the event had to offer. I think it is a little late now to find some more photos, as you’ve probably seen them everywhere else, so this will probably be the last post regarding the event unless I stumble onto some really great photos that can’t be turned away. Enjoy the shots and I’ll do my best to describe what you’re looking at. Thanks for viewing…

If you missed Eric Badis’ shots, click the link below to check it out. This show is so vast that it is hard to capture all the cars in attendance so when you have varying points of view, often times you see a lot of cars that aren’t captured by the other photographer…

Thanks to Brady Lankford for coming through with these shots and I look forward to seeing what he has to offer in the future…

Bradley Lafayette’s K24-swapped JDM Integra Type R is fast becoming one of the more recognized Integra builds in the nation. I had a chance to see this thing in person last year in Texas and it is a really nice build. Looks even better now with the color-matched J’s Racing front lip…

One thing I’ve noticed about the import scene on the other end of the coast is how popular the FA5 and FG2 Civic platforms are. Here in the West, you see them modded but not nearly in the same amount as you do out East. Maybe it has to do with the Honda community over there being much younger than the guys out here…

Pretty unique paint choice on this Integra. I like how the Mugen stripe is airbrushed into the paint. The Chargespeed front lip and Mugen Gen. II wing are a nice touch….

I always thought the R34 GTS-T coupes looked really odd compared to the R34 GTR. Like when you see a hot girl and when you look closer, you realize its the slightly less attractive sister…haha…
