Rarely, if ever, do you see so many unbelievably beautiful cars under one roof. During any Wekfest show you'll likely encounter extraordinary people displaying the absolute best cars from local and surrounding areas. According to Wekfest's Ernesto Jr. Sarmiento, this year's show was the highest attended show next to the Fort Mason events from back in '09 and '10. Visitors had to endure a two hour-plus wait, but all agreed that is was well worth it. And although over 400 hundred cars registered for the San Jose stop, these five cars were easily our favorites.
Dino's Toyota AE86
You don't see many 86 coupes on display nowadays and if you do, more often than not you'll see panda hatchbacks with a fictional tofu delivery store decal on the side. If the GP Sports/Chockets aero or the DMax hood doesn't get your attention, the S14 SR20DET under said hood will surely do the trick.
John Marinas (John Fob) Acura NSX
Who says you have to choose between racecar and streetcar? John tells us his car's original intention was to compete in time attack, but the project was abandoned. That's when John stepped in and added the Kyushu Danji widebody kit and JGTC elements to the car. The chassis is a NA1, but John went with an updated NA2 front as well as the 3.2 NA2 engine swap that's pushing over 300 naturally aspirated horsepower.
KRC Mazda RX-7 "02D"
This Mazda RX-7 was surely built to stir emotions, whether good or bad. Some of you might remember the KRC race RX-7 we featured a few years back; this is the street version that's fitted with an LS1 motor. It's also been converted to right hand drive.
Joey Lee's Infiniti Q45
Our regular contributor Joey Lee's Infiniti Q45 is everything you expect it to be-perfect. His Q's recent makeover includes new paint, wheels, and a one-off Battlecraft exhaust with titanium turndown finishers.
Nemo's Garage Honda Civic
You can't go to Wekfest without spotting an extremely well-built Honda. This is the latest masterpiece from the Nemo's Garage camp in the form of an FA5 Civic. Along with the FD2 front and rear conversion, it's also been equipped with authentic FEELS aero. Inside you'll find quintessential Bride seats and really cool rear carbon door cards. Angel Torres of Nemo's Garage says, "This was actually a lot more complicated than any other Honda we've done because of the mess of a harness and fuse boxes/ECU being in the engine bay."
