Tuner Galleria Chicago 2018

The show series lands in Chicago for a ninth straight year

March 10, 2018, marked the 9th annual Chicago stop of the Tuner Galleria car show series. Once again held at the Donald E Stephens Convention Center, in conjunction with the World of Wheels event, the show is open to all import makes and models, and over the years has brought in some of the best the Chicago area has to offer.

We couldn't get out of SoCal to cover the event due to our workload at the office, but truth be told, the sub-40 degree temps and fact that it was a slightly breezy 70 degrees in Orange County weren't helping the cause at all. Regardless, our friend and triggerman Ginash George was able to snap some pics for us during the one-day affair.

Having covered the event last year and viewing coverage for several years in a row, the build level for TG Chicago didn't seem to be as high when compared to previous stops in the Windy City. The widebody and air suspension combo seem to be the main ingredients just about everywhere in the U.S., and they were everywhere at this event, but we're hoping next time around the event brings about some new styles.

In a world chock full of extreme wheel fitment, bacon fenders and wings that tower above the roofline, it's nice to come across a sleek, simple build like this RHD NSX. Perched on 16-/17-inch Mugen MF10 and sporting Advance sideskirts and front lip, along with a Backyard Special adjustable wing insert and Gruppe M hood—this was our favorite of the show by far.

We don't see nearly enough GC8 Subies at events and this particular version on Advan RG III wheels had just the right combination of parts to really catch our attention. The Ganador mirrors and fender flares that don't cross the line of good taste are but a few of the well-chosen upgrades for a chassis that doesn't get nearly enough attention.
