Extreme Autofest San Diego 2012: Part Three

Words by Matt Willis

Continuing with our coverage from Extreme Autofest. We left off with the drift action on the track. We took a break in-between to grab some water and scour around for any static displays we may have missed…

We found that Sportcar Motion had reconfigured their space differently from when we had first arrived.


The aero on this car is so menacing. I love it. If it was behind me on the track, I would gladly pull over and let it by…haha…


Tekken-themed wrap on this Camaro SS.








Mugen Si from Cali Coalition…

Gilbert from Its JDM yo! was doing his thing. Here Tim was trying out Gilbert’s 40mm 2.8 lens, which he later purchased…

Tim and I both liked this Impala. It was restored very well…

…and the red interior made for a striking contrast against the black.

Another Impala.



Not a bad looking G.

A sleepy Odyssey.

This car definitely received some mixed reviews, primarily because it was unidentifiable. Maybe that’s what the owner was going for…

Somewhere under the extravagance, though, a Dodge Neon exists…

Another angle of the EK9 from Team Werke.


…and the DC2.

We then headed back towards the track to catch some of the final events.

Here, the stunt riders from Cycle Path went out and did a freestyle demo.





















Next up was the lowrider hop competition. Here, hydraulic-assisted cars attempt to get enough bounce to raise the front of the car to its’ maximum potential.




Some managed to get to the top…

Some walked away with some serious damage…







That concludes our coverage from Extreme Autofest in San Diego. Special thanks to the entire EAF crew for the invite and for putting on another great show. Already looking forward to next year!

Thanks for reading!
