AutoCon celebrates its 5th event in the L.A. area, transitioning its way from a shopping mall parking structure, to the Irvine event center, to the home of thoroughbred winners at Santa Anita Park, and now to the famous Pomona Fairplex, the previous home of Import Showoff. The AutoCon staff chose an indoor event in the attempt to keep the guests cool, since the biggest feedback from previous events was the heat. But, with the controlled and political environment it also deleted the gathering of food trucks that AutoCon drew an abundance of. Interior space was an issue as the larger vendors with larger booths were pushed outdoors, which some guests didn’t even know existed.
The outdoors was still pleasurable as the sun only poke through just enough to catch a quick burn. AutoCon was our largest display thus far with a total of 5 vehicles and our newly Daley Visual wrapped cargo hauler.
We brought out our tow vehicle, the Tjin Edition widebodied F150.
Phantasy Kolors prepped Scion FR-S owned by Christian Coujin of Washington
DaYUUM co-founder, Nilo Miranda’s new brass finished wheels on his NSX dropped on AirREX.
Josh from Daley Visual, chrome wrapped Toyota Tundra
And Robert from Magnaflow joined the party.
We had a plethora of goodies from our partners as well an awesome display of products available to consumers.
Close to us was the Toyo Tire booth whom brought out an arsenal of Liberty Walk cars.
One of my favorites is the 458 Italia. In stock form, the 458 is already a head tuner, but add some extra flare from Liberty Walk and its pretty much game over.
Also on display was the Liberty Walk GT-R.
This 510 was pretty fresh as well.
Inside the venue we spotted a few Vortech Supercharged cars, including Mike’s Z. Marcus’ G.
Paul Garcia debuted his Liberty Walk GT-R is tastefully done.
Liberty Walk and Rocket Bunny was everywhere, including this yellow E36 on AirREX suspension.
A pair of clean Genesis.
Countless Hondas and Acuras were on deck.
You can’t discount the Toyotas either! Including a few clean Supras and old school Toys like Milo from Team Klassified.
You can’t go wrong with some Euros.
We are going to finish it off with a classic Lincoln.
