Maybe I’m partial to the East Coast because I’ve spent the majority of my life on that side of the country (or maybe I’ve just been experiencing too much #samlife lately). Sure, California has a lot of righteous, historic builds—but that’s also primarily due to the fact that the greater part of the industry is out here, from media to manufacturers. Yet over the past few years, the right side has been making an undeniable impact on the automotive scene. Influential start-up companies are popping up more and more every day and heavy hitting tuning shops are finally starting to appear in the daily news feed receiving their well deserved recognition throughout the community. Needless to say, with it being over a year since my last visit to a Northeast car show, I couldn’t have been more eager to see what the event had to offer.
Now, even with my hype for the event, Ill be the first to admit that Wekfest Jersey was a tad bit smaller than I had originally expected—especially with my last meet being Wekfest San Jose, which was probably the most packed event I had ever attended in my life. But that doesn’t mean there was a lack of quality by any means. With more than a few real deal GT-Rs, innovative odd swaps, flawless VIP cars and a surprisingly wide selection of Euros, the meet served to be an all around good time for everyone involved. Not to mention the abundance of beautiful females struttin’ throughout the venue catching this single man’s eye.
