Mighty Car Mods LA Meet 5.13.14

Image

Honestly, there are few things that can happen mid-week that will get me to pull the cover off the Fit and purposefully head into the heart of darkness itself, but Moog & Marty of MCM have given me countless hours of turbo-charged, laughter-filled entertainment and I felt it was the least I could do to head out and support one of the best Youtbue channels I’ve come across. (If you are not familiar with this amazing piece of internet hilarity, I suggest you start at the beginning)

Image

It was a bit of a mission trying to find the final resting place of the meet itself (it was re-located three or four times due to police presence and premature hooniganism) but after slipping into the lone hiding compact spot I whipped out the tripod and started the serious quad workout that comes with shooting the slammed locals around these parts.

Image

It was good to see a few familiar faces from the Unaffiliated meet that has now since been indefinitely postponed. Seems like repeated police presence at these type of weekday parking-lot meets is starting to reduce their regularity.

Image

It was a little hectic overall as the meet ended up in a regular parking lot full of people going about their regular day when they were suddenly set-upon by hundreds of loud, low cars and enthusiastic onlookers.  Overall, everyone was very well-behaved though and burn-outs and revving were kept to a minimum.  Heck, more often than not people were making sure to walk around the photo I was taking rather than through it, which is a welcome change!

Image

There were numerous Silvia chassis on hand of course, mostly slammed to the ground with a fair amount of daily-driving induced character like this sleepy type-x nosed hatch.

Image

Or maybe you’re more of a Kouki-face S14 fan? This one with the classic red Bride seat, gold VS-XX, and white paint approach that works on everything.

Image

 

Kouki S13 with a full kit and overfenders? Yep, got those too!

Image

 

This 240 looked pretty serious with tons of negative front camber for maximum grip at full lock!

Image

I love seeing FD RX-7’s out in the wild, even if they had their eyelids ripped off in a street fight.

A skyline draws a crowd anywhere it goes, and a kyusha-style Kenmeri in Southern California makes heads literally explode, shortly after this picture was taken I spent the better part of 20 minutes cleaning the brains and hair of a careless passer-by off my camera lens. No joke.

Image

This Cresta-badged Cressida offered up a bit of bumper-less missile style to the evening.

ImageImage

The ever-popular Zombie Response Team Subaru Outback, now running a slightly less aggressive ride height and featuring a slew of blinky lights.

Image

After about two hours of dominating every. single. parking spot. in the lot the police got sick of everyone and got on their loudspeaker to ask everyone to leave.  It was a polite enough situation and I had a surprisingly pleasant experience backing out of my spot and filing in line to leave the lot along a speedbump-free route home.  Thanks again to Moog & Marty for providing amazing and entertaining videos and for hosting a crazy meet!
