Continuing with getting some older coverage up we go back in time to October ’14 to when 88 Rotors hosted a surprisingly well-attended meet at their warehouse in El Monte. It was my first trip out to a meet in my newly acquired ’86 Toyota pickup and I was pretty excited to run into my friend Jordan who has been showing his ’85 ‘yota recently and is constantly tweaking and changing things, always a cool ride to run into… Not to mention he’s rocking a Hobbaswaggle sticker!
It’s been a couple weeks since the event and I’ve been slacking a bit, so I figured I should get the rest of my shots from Norm Reeves up on the site before they get overshadowed by the next few week’s upcoming events. After meeting up with a few friends at the show and running into a few unexpected acquaintances, I got to work checking out the back-half of the show.

There’s not too much I can add word-wise that I didn’t talk about in my first post, but part 2 will be covering the main part of the show hosted on the grassy section where the bulk of the cars were located. No doubt you’ve seen a few shots of this insanely cambered Q45 (Y33 Cima) on rarely seen 3-spoke Work Equips from Low ‘N Slow, it had a primo spot and had the craziest wheel setup at the show. It’s not surprising this look has caught on so quickly; it’s dangerous, difficult to properly achieve, and it came from Japan!
Wefest Long Beach is easily the biggest, most crowded, and most popular car show that I regularly attend every year. The line to get in is massive, the traffic trying to park borders on Costco-parking-lot levels of congestion, and the sun never fails to chase every cloud away to scorch down on everyone and punish the un-sunscreened. Why bother to wade through all this you might ask?
