What do you get when you put together an event that combines hot cars with hot girls and allows regular people to mingle with industry professionals? If you guessed Tokyo Auto Salon you'd be right, if we were talking about the eastern hemisphere. But we are, of course, referring to SoCal's own Spocom event.

It's kinda like SEMA... with the exception that anyone is allowed in. Ever wondered exactly how an HKS turbo works? There's no better way to find out than to walk up to the HKS booth and ask them! Want some free swag? Spocom is the place to be for freebies. Lots of vendors were out with cars and parts on display, a good sign that the pulse is alive with our scene. But that's not all that makes Spocom a great event, there is of course the car show. This year we saw an excellent mix of vehicles filling the convention center and an estimated increase of roughly 30% more cars as well, again another good indicator that things are looking up for us.

While the mania is occurring there is a lot to see. The main stage featured all sorts of entertainment, from go-go dancing to bikini challenges there was something for every pervert! Before we forget, the people at DC Sports were kind enough to give us space to display Johnny's mega baller EF alongside Project Car's hammered CRX. There was even a ballot box setup so we could try to settle once and for all which car is the better show vehicle. Unfortunately, you'll have to be patient because we still haven't counted the ballots, but keep your eyes peeled in future issues for a winner.
