To say that the 5th Anniversary Wekfest was a success is an understatement. Even hours before the event, photos of people waiting in line were being posted via Instagram. Changing it up this year, the Weksos staff chose the San Jose Convention Center as the official venue for the event.

You never know what you're going to see at Wekfest (San Jose). Everybody has their own taste and opinion of what looks best. But leave it up to the boys at Weksos to gather a variety of rides that would satisfy any gearhead. We went to the event in search of the rarest builds. Whether it's a wild engine swap, a clean restore, Japanese or Euro, this is what we found.

Mazda RX-4 LA23S

This RX-4 is full of surprises. Sprayed with a Lamborghini Orange this RX-4's body exterior has more customization than Pamela Anderson plastic surgeries. Dig a little deeper and you'll find a bigger surprise under the hood. No original Mazda 13B here, but a Toyota 2JZ engine. If that doesn't throw you off, then consider this wild RX-4 is also female owned. When Jamie Liu gets a hold of a car she goes all out. She also has a wide body FR-S and a fully-built Mercedes Benz C 63. Wow!

Nissan Silvia CSP311

Many people passed this car without a second glance. For those that don't know it's a 1st generation Nissan Silvia. For a car that was made in the 60s this one was in pristine condition - like rolled out of the factory condition. We'd like to give kudos to the owner for bringing a piece of automobile history to Wekfest.

Audi 100LS C1

Slammed cars are a dime a dozen nowadays, but a 1972 Audi 100LS? I smell a game changer! This C1 is using Slam Specialties springs and a management by AccuAir Suspension. We love it.

Nissan Skyline 2000GT C10

You've probably seen this one before. Mark Arcenal's Skyline is one of roughly 20 Hakosukas stateside. One look at his Instagram will prove that this is no garage queen; he uses it on the daily. There's something about Japanese nostalgic cars that we can never get tired of.

Toyota Corolla TE27

Tucked in the corner of the Wekfest showroom was this Lamborghini Orange Toyota Corolla. One look at it and you know it's special. Unlike the other car owners, we were able to catch him opening his hood for us. Patrick Ng's TE27 is powered by a 3T-C bottom end and 2T-GR head hybrid. Patrick says, "I changed it up a little bit, since it's been featured. It has new fenders and a different spoiler." We found ourselves returning to that corner just to see this Corolla. We swear we weren't stalking you Patrick.

Compared to last year's show, the 2018 Eibach Ohio Meet was a frigid slosh-fest. Yet despite the weather, Honda fans still managed to link up and celebrate what makes Honda so special.
