My third and final installment of Wekfest weekend leads me to the show. I always loved indoor show because the cars always look great with the lighting and sound great with all the noise bouncing off the walls. We got there at about 10am and didn’t leave until about 9pm so it was a very long day. Once the sntrl crew entered we were all shell shocked by the quality and diversity of cars in attendance. Needless to say, we started snapping away. Now, before you start wondering where all the people are, we got in during setup, so we got a lot of our pictures in before the crowd entered. On to the pics.
McCormick Place ftw!
And the sign of the devil tattoo to let us in. haha
We walked around where all the show cars were waiting, for a while and headed back out for breakfast. And also to get soaked in the downpour.
Setting up. I’m pretty upset, I didn’t get a decent picture of this car at the show.
I’ll start off with Unique Auto. The attention to detail on this hatch is incredible. It was basically a full restoration, and if you want to win shows, this is the type of car you need to build. Props.
Another car in the line up is this Integra Type R with all the JDM and carbon fiber goodies. Another very well built car. Got to love the white Mugen’s.
The perfect car with a perfect drop and a perfect set of wheels. This car is so bad ass.
Here is the whole line up. Quality.
Posted this up for Kenny and his love for Cressida’s.
Love everything about this NSX. This is one of the cars seen on forums but never thought I’d get to see it in person. Classic.
Super slammed 240 from the Junkhouse crew. Damn it must be crazy to roll that hard.
As you can see the diversity and quality was pretty staggering.
Ok here is the deal with this Caddy. For me, it was one of the most anticipated cars of the show. The amount of custom work is incredible. The Japanese Work wheels are a great touch with the K-swap. But, I noticed some flaws here and there. I don’t know, for such a outstanding build, I would want everything perfect. Guess that’s just me. Not here to judge though. Love the truck.
Some Civic eye candy
A couple of wide body 240’s. The purple one is powered by an LSx. Such a nice swap.
The lovely rhd Accord wagon. I would love to know how he got this thing to the states.
As you can see, I got very lazy with the editing here. Super yellow!!! But look at that engine bay! Shaved with a sick turbo setup.
Some more of the Junkhouse/Risky Devils crew. All these guys ride super low. A well deserved best team award given to them that night.
Two cars I really liked. Something about the faded paint.
I have such a soft spot for these first gen. RX7’s. Car didn’t get much attention, but damn it’s a classic. Owner was super cool as well.
this Nova was really a shock to see. Even bigger shock was that it won best in show.
Sickest S15 ever. Period.
I know most people won’t like this trendy BM. But this thing is pretty sick in person.
This was the biggest surprise. Honda Odyssey, lip kit, air ride, this thing had some pretty serious street presence.
This is the sexiest car in the world. I am convinced. Another car that looks just ridiculous in person. Perfection.
Freshly built AE86 with a F20 powerplant. Super clean and build right.
I’ll leave you guys with my favorite car of the show. A beautiful 240 with a Four 6 Customs Rocket Bunny Kit, Nismo wheels, and a LSx powerplant. Perfect in every way. I want one now!
Overall it was a great show. I really wished I had taken my car, but eh, there is always next year. Now for some extra’s.
A slammed flyer for all your gear. YES!
Hmmmmm. Insert your own caption here. smh.
This was so cool! Errthang slammed.
Some remote control drifting to pass the time. Sweet!
Well that about closes my coverage of Wekfest Chicago. It was the most draining yet exciting weekend I’ve had in a while. Can’t wait for next year. Loved Chicago. Such a beautiful city. So until then….
