Spocom Show 2013

Words by Matt Willis

Prior to Comic Con, Tim and I took the time to attend the annual Spocom Consumer & Trade Show over in Anaheim. This is an event we’ve been covering for the past few years and each time we get to see great builds and catch up a little with those in the automotive community. For enthusiasts, its a great way to see the latest cars on the show circuit and check out the latest products from various vendors.
