The entire Super Street staff is always proud of the annual Toyo Tire calendar drop. It gets significantly harder to top every year, but somehow, under miraculous circumstances, we manage to do so. One thing that is notably improved every year is the sheer amount of people that attend our calendar launch car meets. The SoCal edition, returning to Boden Autohaus, was expected to be a successful event. However, we never expected it to be this big! Cars as far as the eye can see, many which opted to park in the middle of the street due to a lack of more conventional parking spaces. But we’re not the type to disregard quality over quantity, and these 10 cars were our absolute favorites. Did your favorite make the list?
Mikey’s Nissan Skyline Hakosuka
With old-school cars gaining popularity every year, it was refreshing to see a Hakosuka with a few extra doors. Mikey’s Hakosuka sedan isn’t just restored machinery either; its heart is made up of a Nissan’s flagship inline 6 motor, the RB26. Mikey tells us that he’ll be painting it soon and it’ll be ready to stunt the streets and for car show season.
Enrique’s Toyota Supra
Still one of the most badass Supras driven on the streets of Southern California – Enrique put a lot of time, energy, and money into making one of the cleanest JZA80s you’ll ever see. Partnering up with Supra aficionados at Twins Turbo Motorsports, this build is simply a masterpiece.
Josh’s Acura Integra Type R
A lot of cars passed through during the course of the day, but when you see an ITR in full Spoon Sports livery, time seems to slow down.
Kelvin Hsiu’s Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX
Good luck trying to find an EVO more perfect than Kelvins, aka Baldy. The Voltex Cyber Edition front bumper alone costs more than the Honda Civic that was burning out down the street.
JM Yang’s RWB Porsche 911
RWB on TE37s – what’s not to love?
Scott Afters McLaren MP4-12C
Not many have the balls to cut up an exotic car and add flares. Scott from the Afters Ice Cream Empire is one of the few. Can we make a Super Street flavor?
Julia Duong’s Nissan 240sx
There’s a reason why we chose (or begged) Julia’s S14 to be a part of our calendar—it’s Kouki perfection. No signs of missile car characteristics at all. It’s all about attention to detail with a touch of rare JDM parts.
Luis Hernandez’s Datsun 510
We have a soft spot for Datsuns, especially ones that have nicely swapped SR20s under the hood.
Allen Lugue’s Toyota Corolla
Just like Julia’s S14, Allen’s AE86 was in hibernation for a few years until it recently made a glorious comeback to the car scene. His car was chosen to use the full Runfree body kit and have it debut at SEMA. Catch a full feature on this throwback gem soon.
Ryan Demasco’s Nissan GT-R
Ryan’s GT-R is another one of the cars you’ll find on the ’17 Toyo Tires calendar. His GT-R rocks a Varis version 2 kit and a very rare HKS technical factory dry carbon GT wing.
