Toyo Tires x Super Street Calendar Launch – Nor Cal

Posted: January 21, 2017 at 10:30 pm   /   by   /   comments (0)

It’s been over 2 years since I wrote on VIPStyleCars. One of the last 3 event coverages I did here was for the Nor Cal Toyo Tires x Super Street Calendar Launch. Today, Toyo Tires & Super Street came back to Nor Cal with Supreme Detailworks for their 2017 Calendar launch held at Club Auto Sport. With a majority of our car club, Endless Projects sponsored by Toyo Tires, I decided to come out and show support to our club. Also, we just transitioned into a new camera and I wanted to see how life would be with it.

One of the concerns that came up was weather. California has been bombarded with storms. Other events planned for this weekend was cancelled on the threat of another large storm. We were told that the Toyo Tires x Super Street event would happen rain or shine. In that case, regardless of weather we were going to still to attend.

As it turned out, the weather cooperated and rain was only present before and after the event.

Our plan was to park next to the Toyo Tires rig, and our arrival time was set for 10:30am. We got to our meeting spot at 10am and the area around Club Autosport was already full. Cars started to arrive around 8am to secure their spots around the venue. I personally was impressed with the turnout. Different cars from all different genres were present. As with any event, we also got to catch up with a lot of our friends and supporters from all over Northern California.

It’s a great start to the 2017 year. Our next event planned will be Wekfest Hawaii then its off to Osaka Auto Messe.

Matt Lee’s ISF with the Wald Black Bison kit merged with Lexon overfenders. Instead of leaving it riveted it on, he took the time to smooth it into the body.

DSC00597

Shaun Graham’s E36. We all know this car for his trunk. Don’t go chasing waterfalls…

So I am biased now that I picked up a Mercedes daily driver. I’m starting to take notice of the ones that show up at events.

DSC00549

LS460 from Supreme Detailworks.

DSC00561

KMG Motorsports Nissan GTR R35. I prefer this color over the prior one. Looks way better this way.

DSC00568

Full carbon fiber kit and wide body on TE37s. Can’t really complain about that.

DSC00566

Daily Driven GTR. Dream Team SF!

DSC00550

I can get with a matte colored GTR. Wouldn’t be a bad choice at all.

DSC00548

Rocket Bunny equipped GTR

DSC00544

No shortage of GTR R35s here. There were a lot more, I just have the random ones shown here.

DSC00552

Then there was the Speed Element R33. One of my personal favorites out here. Simple setup, nothing crazy but very straight forward.

DSC00585

Of course, another unicorn, a Nissan Skyline GTR R34. Interesting to see one in CA…

DSC00537

Lloyd Morales’ Nissan 240SX. You know how hard it is to get a good photo of this car. Always a crowd around the engine bay.

DSC00545

Eric’s Toyota Supra. Another crowd favorite.

DSC00542

You know I said about a Simple but straight forward build, another fine example is Will Chan’s BMW M3.

DSC00598

Yes, its a 2006 Acura NSX, not a 1992.

DSC00580

DSC00579

Most cars sitting on TE37s will always make me stop and take a photo. I miss having a car on TE37s.

Who doesn’t like an older body BMW?

DSC00574

DSC00573

Another clean Acura Integra.

I saw this car roll in and I gotta say that this would also be a very nice daily driver.

DSC00564

HVRKRFT Lexus IS300

DSC00562

RWB Porsche. Can’t have a Nor Cal event unless you have at least one there.

DSC00557

 

DSC00556

Can’t be too broke if you have a Rocket Bunny 350Z? Unless you spent every dime on it but I doubt it.

DSC00551

What did I say about a car on TE37s again? Oh yea, I’m adding it to my photo set.

DSC00555

Or the Speed Element Toyota Sienna on TE37s.

Lastly, the Toyo Tires Spokesmodels signing the calendars.
