Let’s take a minute to rewind and reflect. The Wekfest meet started in San Francisco a few years back. Since then it has been a huge success, drawing in crowds by the thousands that no other show is able to do these days. In 2011 the gang decided to expand and take the show to Chicago, Dallas, and later Hawaii. What is Wekfest? It’s one of the leading car shows in the import scene that was started by the same guys who run the Weksos online retail car shop. We recall way back in 2001 when it was Weaksauce.org, one of the first online forums with a huge classifieds section dedicated to JDM parts. Times have changed and the brand evolved from forum, to e-commerce shop, to one of the scene’s best car shows.
DFW (Dallas–Fort Worth) has always been one of the hotbeds for car tuning, and Wekfest gave us the reason to go out there and check out exactly what big Tex had to offer. We knew there were plenty of fast cars from serious Texas shops out there but we wanted to see if Texans could accommodate the speed with some style. These images speak for themselves.
