7th Annual SpoCom Hawaii

For the seventh year in a row, SpoCom brings out the entire Hawaii fam!

When visiting Hawaii, you can spend all the time you want sippin' Mai Tais on Waikiki Beach, but if you call yourself a car enthusiast, get your ass to Neil S. Blaisdell Center in late August for the 808 State's premier event, SpoCom Hawaii. We've been hitting up shows in Honolulu regularly over the last six years; what we admire is how the entire island comes out to support. You'll find everything from the underground drifters to show queens, old-school builds, and even the local apparel/lifestyle brands out in full force with new clothing drops. Walking the show, I couldn't help notice how many friends united, and see how everyone treats each other like family. This year, we also encountered a handful of cars that were shipped from neighboring islands. That's dedication! And while several rides tend to look the same from previous years, builders do their best to freshen up their projects with new parts, which isn't the easiest thing to do in Hawaii as parts are more expensive and the number of shops aren't as plentiful compared to the mainland. We also can't ignore that a proper road course and dragstrip are still nonexistent on Oahu; however, strong and united, Hawaii enthusiasts don't let these setbacks deter their passion, which is why the seventh annual Hawaii edition of SpoCom was, once again, a huge success!
