The Extreme Dimensions Annual Charity show is easily one of the best re-occurring free shows in Southern California and I try to make a point to make it every year as there’s always a great variety of cars and entertainment. I came in with pretty high hopes from my experiences in previous years but I was not prepared for the volume that this year’s show brought! The attendance appears to have at least doubled since last year and there was an even wider variety of vehicles, there really was something for everyone’s automotive tastes. There’s definitely a real fight for attention out there and a few folks have taken to pretty drastic measures to stand out from the pack, some successful…..some less so. The show itself was amazingly well organized for a free event that allows basically anyone in attendance to participate in the competition and the fact that the staff maintained such a positive and relaxed atmosphere amid a pretty large, potentially rowdy crowd was really impressive.
You can see what I mean here about taking new approaches to standing out from the crowd! While the fender treatment and wheel choice alone would have gotten my full attention, this owner chose to go with the additional hood vinyl and that decorative spoiler action happening out back. It was a conversation-starter for sure!
At first blush this xB had my eyes bulging as it is the only ‘truckified’ version I have ever seen in person,
but on closer inspection of the interior and a few other areas a lot of details have been overlooked or possibly not yet addressed. Like, the owner probably misses having their cup-holders after having them vinyl-wrapped over and it’s pretty easy to tell this car was previously a metallic lime-green, but the concept and impact of this little pickup is irrefutable.
It doesn’t fully come across in the photo, but this WRX was pretty filthy compared to everything surrounding it. Bringing a dirty WRX to a car show isn’t a new idea, but it still makes me smile every time I imagine one of these things doing donuts on a dirt side road as ‘show prep’.
The 2015 Mustang GT. Whoever designed this thing needs to get hired by a few more American automotive companies because this thing is just sexy. I don’t even care when I get cut off by them because it means I can stare at their rear-ends without craning my neck. I could go on…
