As if SEMA week wasn’t enough, we also had the pleasure of attending Autofashion’s VIP Festival this year. We drove into San Diego Saturday night after leaving Las Vegas that morning. This was the third year Kyoei attended and I know I speak for all of us here when I say that we had a blast. We met a lot of new people and saw some familiar faces. Unfortunately the weather did not fully cooperate and it rained throughout most of the day but it reminded us on how the Japanese can still produce a ton of VIP cars at a show on a rainy day. Now that is real dedication. So we decided that a little rain was not going to scare us a way. In the end, the rain didn’t stop many from coming out and staying because the turnout was huge. Cars were parked all along the street on both sides and there were still many cars in the parking lot next to and across the street from the shop. We want to thank Autofashion, the rest of the sponsors, and everyone else who helped make it happen for continuing to put on this awesome show each year and we are looking forward to making a bigger presence at next year’s show. You can check out some pictures from the show below.

Have to shout out our good friend Wes from Las Vegas.
AAdrian’s static TL on insanely wide WEDS Kranze LXZ. We had the pleasure at meeting him the prior night in the hotel parking lot.
After hooking up with a small group of guys from Vegas we had a little 8 car caravan to San Diego. It was nice to drive with a bunch of other VIP cars since last year it was only 2 cars. It definitely made the drive more fun and our new Air Runner suspension really made the drive a lot easier than last year when our LS400 was slammed on coilovers. What else can we say about this year’s VIP Festival?!? It was AMAZING!!! The turnout was probably at least double what it was last year. AutoFashion decided to have some vendors this time which was a welcome addition to the meet. Air Runner, Work Wheels, Ings, Weds, Falkenand even Lexusshowed up with a super gangster enclosed trailer. Thanks to Autofashion for hosting great event VIP festivel.
Like the Vegas VIP meet it was great to kick it with everyone all day. Everyone we met was friendly and awesome to chill with. We can only imagine what next year’s VIP Festival will be like since this year just absolutely blew up.
Be sure to check out these videos from the meet!!!
