Extreme Autofest San Diego, where the show keeps Up All Nite long, and the headline performance is Too $hort!
We tend to get a little spoiled with all the car shows and events that are put together in the LA area; there’s almost one every other weekend or so. But for San Diego natives this is the big show, it’s become a tradition of sorts for EAF to reach out to San Diego’s finest to show off their rides.
This was our first EAF appearance as the Tjin Edition X DaYUUM Roadshow, and I think our display fit right in.
In a car scene so saturated with import cars, most of the hype is pumped over our green Rocket Bunny Scion FR-S by Phantasy Kolors in Washington.
Which is all well and good, but that tends to leave our awesome, trailer hauling, American domestic, Ford F-150 not always getting the attention it deserves.
But at EAF, where the spectators are just as diverse as the car entries, both were the stars of the RoadShow.
Speaking of stars, the energetic San Diego native, Jessica Xiao was rocking the booth for us.
Whether it was taking photos or taking names (for the raffle!), she kicked butt the entire show. Her high-spirited personality helped bring in a lot of foot traffic to our booth, from all sorts of spectators.
You have imports new and old, luxury builds and race spec builds, American classics and street rods, ruckuses and motorcycles. This is the one show where the lines of car types get blurred.
There is a lot to get through so bear with me as we pick out some of the standout rides of the event. Don’t worry, at least you’re feet wont get as tired as mine walking the entire lot. Unless you’re reading this one your iPad or tablet or Samsung Android that’s basically a tablet, then maybe you’ll be on your feet for a while too, just don’t walk into anything okay?
At one end of the same row there were those Chevy street rods, and at the other this aggressive FD and mean Rocket Bunny FR-S.
Nothing short of crazy here at EAF…
The tire isn’t even stretched! It’s just hanging on for dear life in the middle of the wheel.
LowKey is one of the prominent car clubs in SD and they have some pretty clean cars. Like this pair of s2k’s and Jeff’s civic just Wreckin’ it!
Been seeing this stunning BMW at every show it seems, collecting awards left and right as it hangs out with AutoFashion USA, another SD native.
Style Over Comfort with an Audi Over Asphalt.
Veilside NSX doing its business as usual.
Liberty Walks everywhere!
You don’t usually think Honda, let alone Civic when you associate with VIP. But this burgundy with gold theme is just so seksi.
Bright yellow paint, white Racing Harts…oh my JDM nostalgia feels are kicking in.
Another bright beauty.
The Datsun game was on point.
Bring the mo#asjkfhldk$jfg&bl*akshSkfding Ruckus!
Project Zero had a nice line up as well, especially their battle ready S14.
I wonder if any of the other souped up cars could hold a lick to this NotASoccerMom Odyssey?
Cause this people mover is pushing over 1000+ HP! Never be late to school or to the market again.
I’m used to the smell of gas, exhaust fumes, and burnt rubber at car shows, but rarely aerosol cans. Spotted a section where live artist were creating some wild spray can masterpieces; definitely a different smell, sight, and, sense but overall very appealing.
Venturing off to the other end of the show now, it’s like stepping into a whole other world.
First spotting this Fresh Prince (of “Bel-Air”).
These old school Chevy trucks were magnificent. The body lines, the retro style, pristine condition, you don’t have to be a fan to appreciate beauty like these.
Before we check out what went down at the model’s lounge, we were spotted by the one and only Betty Boop!
With the foot traffic easing up a bit, we got a chance to get some snaps of Ms. Jess X
Can be imitated, but never duplicated. Jessica always has fun when the cameras are on her.
Jess X, making everyone green with envy.
Let’s bring on some of the other models shall we?
R1 Concepts had some seski eye candy for everyone to see and take pictures.
Male model or body-guard, I’m not sure what his official title is anymore but either way he’ll stop you in your tracks if your mess with him or his people.
Also part of the R1 team, the beautiful, bodacious and sometimes bizarre (in a good way!), Brittani Paige.
Glen‘s s2k makes everyone say DaYUUM!
But even more so when hottie Kairi Drème is all over it. Wanna ride?
Cute as a lamb, Jenny Lam also made an always stunning appearance.
Asia from JDMSport looking oh so seductive.
Wowing the crowd at the AutoFashion USA booth was the gorgeous Julie Mai.
Get your adrenaline rushing with Jenna Lane.
And look who we got here! Hot DaYUUM Hunnie Ms. Amanda Kerr is back in the SoCal and already getting back into the groove of things. It’s like she never left…so please don’t leave again!
In case you were at the show and didn’t notice, but the EAF staff always provides the models with a theme they could follow; this year…Sports!
Here are a couple of ladies really playing to the crowd and sporting their Chargers jerseys, Lynn Lyn and Christine Zegers.
We found Amanda again, this time popping in with Clipet, Allyson Joy.
Let luck be a lady tonight with Elizabeth Tran.
Batter up! Step to the plate to see if you can match up to Morning Star or if she’s just out of your league.
When she’s not racing on the track, the sporty Lea Anne is showing off her seksi football stance
The loveable Lyna Ly with a racer track suit. It does look good on her, but I’m not quite sure if it’s up to code as far as track safety, unless maybe if the bikini top is you know, fireproof? 😉
With all the yummy eye candy around the show we had to come up with something fresh, so why not bring a crowd by throwing free stuff? So we band together (literally, like with rubberbands) and came up with these goodie packages real quick. Once there was a crowd we started throwing them up in the air for people to
fight over attempt to grab. It was pretty fun and engaging, I think we might do this more often, so come by the booth a check it out!
Catch you guys at our next shenanigans! @justdayuum
