Oh Fricken ‘eh man! It’s been one event after another and I totally skipped out on Extreme Autofest Anaheim coverage. I don’t know how I managed to do that since all the photos have been filtered already.
Extreme Autofest is one of those shows that combine import, domestic, and motorsports in one spot. In fact, it even covers a completely different automotive culture as well. Live entertainment is always a part of EAF as well.
We are typically situated in the import section because the orientation of our eyes, but we do greatly appreciate the quality, time, and efforts the lowrider guys put into their rides. Its a night and day difference in builds. Those guys are like hot rod builders, they spend so much time and money on their paint, undercarriage, motors, displays, and props. For the most part, the import show scene should be a little more detailed oriented like those guys, rather than slapping on a set of wide ass wheels with pulled fenders and calling it a day, I’d like to see more people concentrate on the details in the import scene. At one point it was getting that way, then everything shifted on its axis and people were cambering cars that were never meant to be cambered – but I get it. Its the trend, the style – I’m just saying, its a “show” car, it should be complete. I do like all the shaved and tucked bays in our scene though, that’s a good direction.
While strolling the lowrider portion of the show, I found it surprising that we couldn’t sneak a 16oz. Arrowhead bottle of water into the venue but the lowrider guys somehow were able to sneak in a whole bar worth of Tecate and weed – a whole lot of it.
Anyways, for this year’s Extreme Autofest, we had a nice layout that consisted of a 10×20 tent and 3 cars. We had Neil of Tjin Edition’s Ford Fusion with us this year and it was interesting to see so many people crawl underneath the car to check out the exhaust. We also had Jayson’s IS350 and Nilo’s NSX which was its first public debut of the wrap and the AirREX Suspension.
Also joining us was Aila Elyzze. Aila drove 7 hours from Arizona to join us. Leading up to the event she was stressing hard about school so we appreciate her gathering the necessary belongings and making a drive to Cali. While modeling is just a side project for her, she has a lot of drive and passion where she invests 100% with anything she does. We are glad to have her as part of the family. PS – Happy Belated Birthday!
The event was actually quite huge and so much going on that it was hard to even concentrate on what was going down.

Back at homebase we had a few surprise visitors.
