WekFest LA 2012 – Long Beach – Vortech Superchargers – Tjin Edition
WekFest made its way back to Long Beach this year for the second time. But for geographical popularity, they chose to call it WekFest LA, which confuses some locals. In any case, we had the chance to visit Hawaii for WekFest and earlier in the year we went to WekFest up in San Francisco, therefore when it came time for the LA event we were destined to be there. Long Beach is our backyard; literally, some of the crew, including myself resides in Long Beach and have for many years.
For WekFest LA we teamed up with our site partners Vortech Superchargers and our friends at Tjin Edition. We were lucky enough to occupy some space and helped man their booth. Several AirPower group cars surrounded the area.
And finished off with Sal’s “Last Ride”, also fronting the Vortech V-3 Si Supercharger.
The WekFest show was short of disappointing. Plenty of nicely built Honda’s were on hand such as Big Mike’s Prelude and this Red NSX with gold plated Mugen MF10s, both were part of ItsJDMYo’s harem of cars.
One of my favorite H-cars was this Jasper Green DA. It brought back memories of when I first started the compact car scene when I had my EF sedan, in fact, I also owned a Jasper Green LS. This Acura Integra (DA) sat pretty, with color-matched moldings and mirrors (although aftermarket), an option that didn’t come factory with this trim (LS, if I am not mistaken, I didn’t spend much time on it). That simple modification was fitting for that era. A newer year bumper was added as well. It was sitting on SSR EX-C NEOs with color-matched accents. It was different to see it not triple-chromed like how I use to see them.
WekFest ended on a great note,
At the end of the day, the weather was phenomenal, and we are anticipating WekSOS’s next event. I want to thanks Vortech Superchargers, Tjin Edition, and WekSOS for the hospitality. Thanks to Jimmy Dang for assisting in some of the shots.
