When I first found out about import alliance back in high school I made it a goal of mine to make it to one of their meets. Ideally I would want to go to the Nashville or Atlanta ones since that’s where all the heavy hitters attend, but money and time always lead me away from it. To my luck, however, they hosted one at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth and a few of us Natsukashi guys (and gals) took to go.
The quality at this meet was outstanding. Yes there were the typical fake parts and no heart builds but you can really see the cars that shine with their creators heart. It’s the builds and the people behind them that constantly remind me of how fortunate I am to be apart of this scene.
P.S. I took a stab at editing photos for the first time, any criticism is welcome!
We decided to stay at the Best Western in Roanoke, Texas. This was the first time that we were stationed at some place that wasn’t way off in the boon docks. It was great!
After our early morning cleaning and breakfast extravaganza we left to load up on snacks and drinks for the day! We also met up with Cole. He’s a young kid who’s starting out right. Never under estimate simplicity folks.
We have a theme of working on pizza delivery signs for advertisement for Natsukashi Garage so Thaison went to work on clearing off this Pizza hut jazz
Charlie lookin cute as always
We arrived at the meet and I immediately started snappin’. The first car that caught my eye was this bagged Jetta on stock wheels. Sometimes stock wheels just work, and this is a testament to that.
This EK sedan was in my top 3 favorite cars at the show. It was the perfect height, had amazing wheels, and was all around clene. This color was also amazing. I also noticed the sir headlights which made me happy.
That bay is correct
All red tail lights. It’s just like my hatch!! You can’t deny this car’s awesomeness.
I do love AP1’s. This is even more true when they come together like this.
Some TL love
Probably my favorite picture of the set. Southern Envy always rolls hard.
A bagged Jetta with a peculiar front end. I can still dig it!
Everyone loves a 240. I love the color and stance of this one.
How about some old school vdub love?
Cody wasn’t there but we still honored him with Wagon love
It ain’t a tight car if it ain’t a type r
96-98 Midori civic hatch. I love this color.
Sir headlights and lip!
Gotta love JDM fronts when they fit.
To match the slammed ruckus!
Vinson also wasn’t there but Vdubs still were!
Some trucks just go low. I love this build’s theme
Take me back to 99. Awe yeeeee
Laugh all you want, this car means BUSINESS
I love this EG. Apparently it’s K swapped!

Track theme anyone?
Back windows are overrated
Another clean midor
You just have to love the oldies. Still original air cooled engine!
M5’s are classy
Business rear end
This Audi was executed perfectly
I always wanted an NB miata and this rekindled my love
This was my favorite Subie there. I love everything about it. It’s Aero, wheels, and stance was perfect. Looks amazingly fun to drive.
Project mu breaks. A dream of mine.
Not everyone neglects these things
Time attack evo
S13 love. Super Advans are still on my to own list.
A class, simple Lexus
This Genesis was a true show stopper. Not familiar with the wheels but needless to say I love them.
More details again. K swaps are really starting to grow on me.
The things I would do for these seats.
A k swapped hatch in white. So lovely
Thuc is oogling
Everyone loves K’s
This car made me think of StevenxHellaflushxScrapeordiexYolo
This bluebird was the undisputed king of the meet. It was perfect.
Modern day motor
Spoon fed ITR

A lot of ITR’s showed up. This one was my favorite there. Boost!
Gotta love Spoon wheels
Another clean EM1 on CCW’s.
And that was our Journey. We have tons of cool stuff coming this year, and I can’t wait to inform you all on what we have planned next. Stay tuned Natsukashi Friends.
