Import Alliance End of Winter Meet

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

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.
