7 Cars You Had To See At Wekfest San Jose 2016

The chosen few from Wekfest's homecoming

Jul 27, 2016

California is a place all but saturated, brimming with anything car related, yet Wekfest still manages to remain the undisputed champion of car shows. Like most shows, Wekfest's origins began as a simple meet, but as a true testament to years of hard work it's now a full-on nationwide tour, with one international stop in Japan. It's the type of show where you can expect to wait in line for an hour, or three, just to get through the doors, especially the hometown stop in the Bay Area. Believe us when we say it's totally worth the wait. But in case you weren't able to make it, rest assured that along with our overall coverage of the event, we found seven cars you absolutely had to see at Wekfest San Jose '16.

Hoang Dao's LS RX-7
Relax, we know it's another Rocket Bunny car and Hoang Dao's build is certainly not for the faint of heart. The car gets two scoops of brotein dosage with the aforementioned widebody kit and a side of American muscle. We're calling this the new age of hot rodding at its finest.

Rywire Integra
If you didn't get the chance to see this epic build at SEMA because of all the hordes of people surrounding the car, Wekfest was the place to see all the intricate details Ryan of Rywire has done. Safe to say, Ryan's car is one of the hottest Integras ever, and low key, will be hard to top.

Steve Pham's Nissan Silvia S14
This car was supposed to make its debut at SEMA '15, but as it turned out the goals were a bit too ambitious. Fast forward a few months and this BMW powered S14 has officially been unveiled. At the end of the day, Steve took home second place in Overall Best of Show.

Nim Divino's Acura NSX
It's easy to get carried away with aero, but Nim Divino knows better. Since the NSX already has sexy bodylines, he went with something that wouldn't be too aggressive and still kept the exotic look of the car. The front bumper comes from Marga Hills in Japan and the sideskirts are TCRC. Originally the car was red but was given a fresh coat of Giallo Orion yellow from Lamborghini's color palette.

David Uy's Ferrari 458
It should be pretty self-explanatory why David Uy's street driven Ferrari 458GT3 is on the list, right?

Sung Kang's Datsun 240Z
This is another car that stole the show at SEMA '15. This was a special collaboration build between GReddy and actor Sung Kang, who you might know as Han in the Fast and Furious movie franchise.

Albert Zheng's Mazda RX-7
This is the car that made our pants abnormally tight whenever we passed by. It surely happened to the judges as well, since it took home first place in Best of Show. Albert Zheng's RX-7 has nothing but top-shelf parts, such as RE Amemiya, Bride, Toyo, and Stoptech. The car has Japanese soul mixed with a little bit of traditional Americana. Albert's goal for this car was to be as clean as a show car, driven as hard as a racecar, and remain as reliable as a street car.
