February 28 - Honolulu, HI
The term "Hellaflush" has made its way from humble beginnings and a word-of-mouth blog to becoming a household name amongst the ever-changing import movement. With the low offset trend creating waves that splash over just about every type of import on the street, there's no question that Hellaflush is onto something big.

From old school EF chassis Civics to newer generation sedans liks the TSX, flush, and beyond flush wheel fitment seems to be catching on. Love it or hate it, the style doesn't seem to be going dying anytime soon.

Wadadli
Honda Day 2K10

Located in the West Indies, the Island of Antigua has a population of just over 80,000 spread amongst only 108 square miles. A good portion of that population has an intense love for the Honda brand, and the Wadadli Honda Day event is living proof. Taking place at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium, the event was well received as over 100 Hondas dominated the parking lot. The most popular cars of the event were the JDM ITR and CTR chassis. ITR five-lug conversions and CTR wheels seemed to be the standard for the EG squad, while the four-door DB8 owners didn't fail to show that they could certainly hold their own.

Attendees were in for a treat, and the atmosphere was filled with excitement as they entered the lot, greeted by Automotive Arts with a massive Meguiar's display that included an employee's car-one of the cleanest Euro-R Accords on the entire island. Just past Meguiar's was the island's top sign company, Singpro Antigua, with their high quality decals, trophies, and graphic-wrapped display cars. The local Honda dealer, Antigua Motors, showed up hours before the event to display their 2010 lineup of vehicles.

Well known local clubs Team Hondadli, Lowbudget Racing ANU, Team iLL, Team Adrenaline, Team Sickheadz, Klub Kross Motorsports, and Street Reapers were just a few in attendance. With incredible island weather overhead and an amazing bar and grill, enthusiasts from all corners of the island took part in the event that's sure to make a comeback.

The organizers of the show, Antiguastreetz.com, would like to thank all the sponsors that made it possible and all the guys and girls who gave up their day to make this event a great one!

TSX Meet
The TSX bunch is a bit neglected. Very few are built to the level of feature car status, yet there's a healthy following that lives and breathes all things TSX. Rather than wait for an event that caters to the four-door sedan and its owners, the TSX forums took it upon themselves to make something happen.

San Diego in March is as close to perfection as you can get. With sunny skies, a cool breeze swept through the beach-front parking lot as TSXs (mostly first generation models) made their way to the event. Though numbers weren't astounding, there's no question that this is just the beginning and TSX owners have vowed to make their mark.

Remix award tour
Car Show & Competition
Competition car shows have slowly been fading out of the import community at a rapid pace. Extreme Autofest is now geared toward the DUB/Lowrider crowd, while Hot Import Nights was sold a while back and is looking as if they're seemingly out the door. The Remix Tour, run by a few former HIN refugees, is an attempt to bring back, as they say, "the real car show".

The Remix staff officially kicked off their inaugural event in Irwindale, CA. Despite little advertising for the event, the turn-out was exceptional. Shops and car crews brought out their best to compete for newly announced award classes which included both "Custom" and "Driven" categories. Separate classes were created to ensure that the competition was on a level playing field. Those who once complained about their daily drivers being placed in the same classes as spotless "trailer-queens" could finally be satisfied in knowing that their efforts were recognized.

The Xtreme Drift Circuit also held their first event in conjunction with the Remix tour. XDC is giving amateur drifters an outlet to drift and hone their skills in hopes of ultimately making it into the professional Formula D series.

Hondas had a somewhat decent showing at the inaugural event, though not nearly as large as most of the recent shows. The theme of the event once again focused on the ever-controversial aggressive wheel fitment. The majority of the Hondas in attendance had their rolled and pulled fenders ready to house the most aggressive wheels they could get their hands on.

Remix Award Tour gives the most hardcore car show guys a place to get their competitive juices flowing once again. They have seven more shows left on their 2010 schedule, so make sure to check it out when they come to a city near you.www.remixevents.com
