Hope everyone had a good Wednesday. Just continuing the coverage from last weekend’s event…

This sea green Evo X ( as seen from our Wekfest LA coverage ) would be another contender for one of my favorite builds. It’s just aggressive looking – plain and simple – I can’t put it any other way. I guess Evo 10’s naturally look that way with the “angry” shape, but the body lines…the Voltex wing and CF hood…the lip and canards..everything just flows so well. The green/gold/black theme is mellow but it still stands out.

I didn’t get a chance to check out the interior at Wekfest, so I scoped it out this time. Full roll cage, CF door panels+console, Bride seats and floor plates…just awesome! I love the gauge pods too.

…and here’s a closeup of the wheel/tire/brake setup. Wedsport SA-55M on Advan Neova AD08s, in front of BIG Project Mu’s…

There were quite a few cars in this style at EAF. I suppose you would call it “going all-out” because some of these builds were just astonishing ( see below ). This particular Camaro caught Tim and I’s attention…the pearly red paint had a red-orange sheen in the light and was pure candy-apple in the shadows…it looked absolutely perfect…

Moving on to something a bit more, “custom”…

The Team Noctural “Noktastrophe” is pretty much as all-out as you can get on a truck.

Great work, unfortunately the mini-me is an Escalade and not an Expedition…and I saw it a lot at the show, but I’m still not quite sure I understand the poly-fil in the wheel wells and engine bays…?

Still scratching my head on this theme…

This is a classic Skyline we see frequently here in socal…notice the “California Historical Vehicle” plates. This is the second time I’ve seen these, the first being on the Audi Quattro I spotted at Cars & Coffee a few months ago…I wonder if I can get those plates for my Civic?
