Car shows often times tend to be a dime a dozen in that they sometimes overlap one another and more often than not, you run across the same cars time and time again. But in all of the digital elbowing and jostling for position in a rather fickle market, there's one event that we can always count on to bring out the best of the best - Wek'fest LA.
With a tour schedule that includes the group's hometown in the Bay Area, Chicago, Texas, Florida, and even Japan, it's the SoCal visit that seems to garner the most attention. Highly anticipated by regulars and heavily trafficked by visitors from all over the world, it's not uncommon to see incredible builds debuting on the Queen Mary Events Park waterfront.
Do you like variety? That's exactly where the Wek'fest events tend to strive as they incorporate a number of vehicle types that include Japanese, European, domestic and a number of exotics. It's not often that you find a pristine R34 Skyline parked just a few feet away from a heavily modified Camaro and a 500+hp Honda Civic. Truly a "something for everyone" affair, it's brought the crowds every time and there's no signs of slowing.
Another successful event in the books and Wek'fest organizers already have the rest of the year's schedule mapped out. For a behind the scenes look from the morning of the event, check out our Facebook Live footage.

A short trip from Arizona, Tho Ly's boosted S2000 features Volk Racing CE28s, Amuse Legalo bumper and fenders and incredibly detailed engine setup that eclipses the 500whp mark.
Love it or hate it, RWB Porsche's command attention at any event they attend, and "Medusa" is no different.
The Nemo's Garage display featured their supercharged K20, copper-colored Civic EH that, coincidentally, took first place at the annual Super Street FF Battle and has a few show awards under its belt. Next to that was the official debut of their turbo K-powered Civic EM1 - a rather deep dive into the depths of engine bay customization.
