I didn’t get the chance to run down to Southern California for Hot Import Nights.  Luckily a good friend of mine was out there and he provided me with a few pics to use on VSC.  First thing that caught my eye was Raymund’s GS430 from Royal Flush.  I had the pleasure of meeting Raymund in person at a BPVIP / Royal Flush meet the last time I went down to Disneyland with Keoni.  I saw the car back then and after seeing the changes made to it for HIN, it blew my mind.  The new kit and now how the car sits on the wheel setup.  I enjoy and respect the suspension work needed to make it sit like that.  Hopefully thats one car we can feature here on VSC some day.

Here is a rear shot to get an idea of the camber in the rear.  I love it.

This IS350 is one of my favorite VIP IS350 builds out there.  Last Wekfest LA, I was parked with this car in the Air Runner booth.  I was so impressed with the work that went into this build.  Such attention to detail.  By the way, this car is for sale.  Check it out – http://www.vipstylecars.com/forums/showthread.php?t=28953

This AE86 is another complete car that I am a fan of.  This AE86 is powered by a F20C (Honda S2000) motor if I can recall.  For some AE86 purists, this was a travesty.  I salute the owner for doing something out of the box.

I think its no secret that I am beginning to want a MR2 Turbo for a daily driver.  I’ve been looking at them a lot lately but holding back because of the modding bug I will catch if I ever was to take one home.  This wide body MR2 on Work wheels isn’t helping me with that.  I would love to drive a car like that every day.  Then I’ll be nervous parking the car outside at night since the GS400 takes up the garage spot.

Thanks again Steven for the quick coverage of HIN.  This was extremely last minute and I appreciate you blessing us with it.  Check out Steven’s photography page linked up top.  See you guys at the next HIN hopefully!  This time with full coverage from the event.
