"Hey-a friend of mine at Shine Motorsports (www.shineautoproject. com) is hosting a meet this weekend to show off some new products. You should come out-there should be some decent cars going," previous 2NR feature car owner Wendy Cheng suggested to me in conversation the other day. "Is there going to be a bbQ? Yeah? Count me in!" I replied. Trusting her judgment, I set off for the Ontario, Calif., aero experts headquarters in hopes of getting the scoop on a few dozen cleanly modded rides. but, damn-I must have pulled in as car number 200 of about as many more to follow; Shine owner Ken Ching later put the estimate of attendees at well over 400 for the day. "We ran out of hot dogs in the first hour," he laughed when we met. Damn, again.

As I walked what seemed like miles of tuned imports lining the grounds, the realization began to set in: I had attended smaller national shows-with less impressive turnouts. Grassroots meets like this bring out some of the most impressive old school, track-prepped, or daily driven rides the owners of which simply have no desire to fight for points on the national circuit-theirs are cars built to be driven! Got a meet you think we should check out? Let us know via postal@importtuner.com
