Event Coverage: Importfest – Fast, Furious, And Fun

Our first-ever Importfest went down May 25 and the day served up a great mix of Japanese imports with a sprinkling of stanced-out European cars. Bright colors, hunkered stances, bold interiors, crazy custom stereos, and serious performance were the order of the day.

Video: Bosozoku – Cartoon Cars Come To Life

Bosozoku is all about rebellion against the mainstream ideals and the ethics of civilized society. In the era of the 1950’s it started as a sub-culture of Japanese motorcycle gangs who showed no respect for traffic laws, traffic officers, and other accepted norms on the road… and beyond. The brashness of the Bosozoku movement evolved through the decades, adding two wheels, dialing back the gang mentality, and taking on a more eccentric, audacious tone in regards to representing on the street.

Porsches Storm The Gates At Caffeine & Gasoline®

Porsches Storm The Gates At Caffeine & Gasoline®
