1. Emotion RSXs
The Emotion Crew is one of the oldest and most recognized car clubs on the East Coast. They been in the game since '04, and 12 years later they are still killing it with builds like Brian McCoy's and Kiet Hong's Acura RSXs.

2. Jason Pham's GS
Another major player from the Emotion Crew, Jason debuted the new looks of his 2JZ-powered GS, and quite honestly it was no mystery why it won the Best of Show award at Tuner Evolution!

3. Matthew Meadow's STI
It was finally good to see this slammed and saucy Subie in person. 600hp and a shaved bay you could eat off of, great job Matt! You can check out his full feature here.

4. Ryan Miller's Corrado
Holy flashback! Ryan's Corrado was featured back in eurotuner magazine and '11. Good to see it's still around with its Audi S4 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 and all-wheel drive conversions still in tact. Full feature here.

5. Wizard of Foxx's Forester STI
These are probably more rare to find in the States than a Skyline GT-R. The owner imported this right-hand drive Forester STI from Japan has added TE37s, air suspension and still has more mods to come! Follow him on Instagram: @jochy06sg9

6. Technology R's Accord
This was probably the most talked about car from TE... A '14 Accord V6 with a twin-turbo gold! The system makes 630hp, but the owner is shooting for 800hp after a new tranny and race slicks.

7. Matt James' Skyline GT-R
Matt's R32 was breaking necks all day. It rocks a single-turbo RB26 setup, custom widebody and Work Meister wheels. Check out more photos of his car on his Instagram: @maatt_jaames

8. Nawshin Basher's Evo
We'll have a feature of Nawshin's Evo soon; in the meantime, he's not taking any breaks from any of the big shows, racking up a couple awards from Tuner Evo thanks to its Voltex Cyber aero and incredible engine bay.

9. Gary Bentz's Eclipse
Well this is something you don't see everyday, especially at a show! Gary's Eclipse is still a work-in-progress but things are looking good with custom Vortech supercharger setup that's in the process of being finished. Follow his Instagram for more pics: @mcclipsegt

10. Cadillac de Ville
Not your typical car show entry, this Cadillac simply stopped me in my tracks. I have no idea what year it is (gonna guess from the '60s), nor will I lie and say I know anything about these things, but I just know it's slammed, flawless and awesome!
