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.
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”…
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?
Thanks for looking!
