Wekfest Los Angeles 2014 Coverage…Part 2…

Got a lot going on over here at the office with a Vegas trip to come at the end of the week so I better get some more coverage out for you guys. Again, sorry for not getting as much content as I could but I was just out of it that day. I promise that Wekfest San Jose will be much more in-depth, I swear. For now, enjoy the second set of photos that I was able to capture from the WFLA event. This is the second of three parts total so make sure to come back tomorrow to see the rest of the pics. I got some more thoughts I’d like to pass along from that day but I’ll save it for tomorrow since I gotta get out of here and help Brandon from BOWLS LA out with some filming. Enjoy and thanks for the support….

If you missed Part 1, which includes a brief summary of Mikey’s Integra rebuild, make sure to check it out in the link below…

Wekfest Los Angeles 2014 Coverage…Part 1…

And here we go with some more coverage….

IMG_9157-Edit

Erik Mercado’s K-swapped and turbocharged EJ1 Civic coupe which once belonged to Derek from the now defunct All-In Fabrication. Good to see Erik continue to add to this car and put forth more of an effort to make it a better looking car to match all the work in the engine bay…

IMG_9161-Edit

Luigi Arroyo’s J’s Racing GT widebody S2000. Not too long after WFLA, Luigi ran into some unfortunate events on the 57 freeway and now the car is back once again at the body shop for its third major makeover….

Dan Pham’s ASM-themed AP1 S2000 on black Volk Racing CE28….

Kraftwerks supercharged NA MX-5 Miata on SSR MKII. Love the custom rag top from Project-G….

Hard-topped MX-5 Miata also running a Kraftswerks blower. Wheels are CCW D11L….

IMG_9146-Edit

IMG_9144-Edit

This Miata has a matching rag top like the black MX-5 above but runs the same Mazda BP motor with a Kraftwerks blower. The owner switched it up a bit by using a Ford valve cover, which probably tripped some people out but it is actually the same motor. They used this engine in both the Mazdas and Fords of that era so the valve covers were interchangeable….

SSR EX-C Fins on this Miata which shared similar styling cues as the other three you previously saw…

IMG_9094-Edit

Kouki S14 240SX from GROUNDED crew on gold AG wheels…

IMG_9185-Edit

BMW 335i sedan rocking a nice red on bronze colorway…

IMG_9187-Edit

UCF20 LS400 planted on 18-inch Work VS-KF wheels. Interesting to see 18s on a big body LS….

IMG_9191-Edit

CTR-styled EP3 Civic hatchback on concave-faced Volk TE37SL….

IMG_9193-Edit

These J’s Racing GT widebody kits are starting to get pretty popular. It seems like every show there seems to be a new S2000 build with this kit popping up all over the nation. This one from Project Zero is looking pretty good in this tealish hue on bronze Volk TE37s….

IMG_9195-Edit

G35 sedan running Work VS-XX wheels from RareJDM….

IMG_9196-Edit

IMG_9199-Edit

Marcus Cooke’s multiple-award winning G35 sedan build that you’ve seen numerous times prior on this site….

IMG_9201-Edit

IMG_9202-Edit

Right along side Marcus as always is Chris Ortez’s 6-speed G35 sedan, which is also a multiple award-winner. It’s cool to see these two always parked together even though they are pretty much competing with one another at every event…

IMG_9204-Edit

James from Floss Design’s 997.2 GT3 Porsche on BBS Cup wheels. He parked specifically on his own towards to back of the show so you could capture that Long Beach skyline in the distance in every photo…

IMG_9207-Edit

Love the custom rear fender work on this UCF30 from Royal Flush…

IMG_9209-Edit

Courtney Michelle Wingfield’s BMW F30 328i on Black Edition Volk Racing TE37SL and a Varis rear spoiler…

K-swapped Civic from Novak Raciing utilizing a set of TODA Racing individual throttle bodies…

IMG_9218-Edit

FA5 Civic SI with FD2 headlights, fenders, Mugen RR-replica front bumper, rear trunk conversion, and FEEL’s overfenders. Under the hood (or lack thereof) is a CT Engineering supercharger…

IMG_9268-Edit

IMG_9271-Edit

Jonathan Monteith’s Civic with a beefy front end using Chargespeed wide fenders and a J’s Racing front lip. There’s so much aero in the front now and it looks so aggressive that I wish there was some aero in the rear to match. Maybe it is in the works already…

That’ll conclude part 2 of our coverage. Stay tuned tomorrow for Part 3 of 3! Thanks for looking!!…
