Check every forum on the internet and you'll be able to find ten car meets on any given weekend. Out of those ten, nine will have you spending half your time dodging rent-a-cops in golf carts, and the other half sifting through a Krispy Kreme parking lot full of APC wings and neon under-glow kits. South Coast Acura's gathering on February 11th was one of the select few that were worthy of saving a day on your calendar.

"We held this event to introduce South Coast Performance to the Honda/Acura crowd," says Adam Nelson, parts manager at SCA/SCP. "It was all about getting to know people in the scene. Everyone was invited to come by, eat some hamburgers and check out all the goodies SCP has to offer," recalls Nelson. "We are trying to associate SCA and SCP with performance and fixed-up cars." All of the SoCal scene regulars came out to show off including five HT cover cars and a handful of feature alumni.

"The turnout was much larger than we expected." Adam told us, "We couldn't facilitate all the cars that showed up. We had to turn some away." Nelson also mentioned that SCA, in conjunction with nsxprime.com, holds an NSX meet each first Thursday of the month, which plays host to speakers from big name companies such as Brembo and Elf Oils.

South Coast Performance is now officially one of two authorized distributors of the ever-coveted Spoon Sports product line. Five years ago, it would take months to track down and purchase a pair of Spoon/Nissin brake calipers. SCP currently has 25 pairs in stock, just begging to replace the factory equipped little almost-nothings that came on your ride. If Spoon parts don't bling hard enough to tickle your fancy, SCP will soon be stocking hard-to-get JDM parts from the likes of J's Racing and Alex Motorsports. For the NSX guys, SCP imports all Gruppe M parts, from intakes to supercharger kits. Adam concludes, "I want to carry rare stuff. I need to be able to supply my people with what they need."
