Siam Meet Up 2018

Thailand's thriving enthusiast movement rolls on...

Last year we brought you coverage of a large number of feature cars, meets and race events from Thailand. The country has proven time and time again it's packed with dedicated, hardcore enthusiasts, and in 2018 it continues to grow. We recently received an email from Thai native Street Metal, an automotive photographer who covers any- and everthing automotive-related, and who captured some photos at the 2018 Siam Meet Up. From what we understand, this event is announced via Siam Street Racing's Facebook page and was designed to bring local enthusiasts and car clubs together to see what everyone's been working on, talk shop, and meet a few new faces.

Honda builds are common in Thailand, and much like the U.S. come in all forms, from mild SOHC builds to all-out, high-powered K-series drag cars. In addtion, we often come across an array of Skyline, RX-7, and Silvia builds, as well as some off-the wall, cross-platform engine swaps that stir up as much geniuine interest as they do controversy.

Once mild-mannered and rather mundane, this Toyota Corona sedan people-mover has been completely reworked inside and out and is now powered by Mitsubishi's verable 4G63.

Though not yet complete, this 6th-gen Civic coupe is fitted with an F20 swap and what look like to be S-chassis shock towers as it embarks on a RWD conversion.

Not surprising, there were a few Nissan Skylines in attendence. In fact, there's a large Skyline community in Thailand and we covered a few GT-R meets last year.

Drag race-specific VW Bugs aren't at all uncommon, but Honda K-series, ITB-powered versions certainly are.

This group of Honda builders all shared the same paint scheme and boasted very complete builds. The coupe sits on Work Meister CR, while the sedan uses Barramundi Raycod wheels - both rely on ITB K-swaps.

There's no shortage of Mazda RX-7 builds in Thailand, including high horsepower builds equipeed with high-end aero, oftentimes relying on their native rotary engines.

It's one of the first modifications you reach for when piecing together a new build and it's something you don't want to leave to chance.

With so many cars on hand at Spocom's SoCal tour stop, we had to split the coverage into two parts.
