Bulletproof’s 11th Anniversary Meet Up

Words by Tim Wong

Bulletproof Automotive / GT-RR / Bespoke Ventures is a shop that specializes in high quality brand products for Japanese cars. They believe in only utilizing legitimate parts for all vehicles and hosted a gathering of like mind automotive enthusiasts. I don’t particularly hate on other people for using “fake” parts, because I get it. Not everyone wants to blow large sums of their hard earn money on their car because they have other priorities to attend to which I think is more responsible. I would never put “fake” stuff on my own car, but I get why other people do it (and probably why my car is coming along so slowly). I believe if you do something you might well do it right the first time. I thought it would be a pretty good event assuming all attendees would have cars of the highest quality, but it was surprisingly small (quality over quantity anyways).

Black Honda CRZ with a set bronze Mugen MF-10s was an excellent combination. And the Spoon calipers were a nice touch. I was thinking if the wheels were just one inch wider, the flush (not hellaflush) fitment would have been perfect.

Skyline I’ve been seeing pop up rather often at shows lately.

Mitsubishi Evo X aggressive as ever.

Bulletproof’s Honda S2000. The gold stands out quite a bit. This car clearly had an extensive amount of work done to it.

This NSX is no different than the S2000. Insane amounts of money and work went into building this car. Almost the entire car’s body panels were carbon fiber.

Matte black Evo.

I don’t get the lowered wing deal that people have started to do. I hear the reason is to draw less attention to when you are daily driving it, but at that point you might as well just take the whole thing off. Anyone can see the big wing and and its just extra weight added to the car.

The nice Nissan 240sx S13 with the Top Secret front bumper we saw a while ago at Infest’s Nissan Meet in Glendale.
