Once again, we put the word out about the Toyo Tires x Super Street calendar launch and YOU showed up in droves to help us celebrate the launch. For the past few years, the Honda Center in Anaheim, California, has served as the meet-up point for hundreds of fans to help kick off the new year, and the Home of the Ducks parking lot this this time around-without question-saw its largest turnout ever.

It keeps the factory bumper but Mugen vent caps were installed over the factory side grills to decrease their footprint and up top, a larger aftermarket grill opening is used. The new hood leaves portions of its carbon fiber construction exposed while the rest is color-matched and further feeds into the black and white theme.

A free event to all makes and models, the meet has a knack for seamlessly blending Japanese, European and even domestic vehicles into row after row of street, show, off-road and exotic builds. Being that it's a massive meet and not a show, you get an eclectic mix of cars, trucks and SUVs that range from the basic drop and wheel package, to fully built and boosted, widebody-converted show stoppers. An all-encompassing affair that serves as a meeting point for fellow automotive enthusiasts that might not fancy the same vehicle type as the next guy or girl but on this day, it didn't matter.

With so many vehicles making their way through the gates, you'd probably expect a painfully long wait with bouts of pure frustration but in reality, the Honda Center staff and local authorities did an excellent job once again of rolling cars through the gates in no time at all. As you might expect, many showed up early to avoid any lines but even those arriving well after the official start time had no problem being ushered through the entrance and finding a parking spot.

2020 Toyo Tires x SS Calendar Launch Meet datsun pick up Photo 143/143   |   Classic Datsun trucks like this 620 have seen a sort of uprising in recent years, proven by the "tax" applied to classifieds listing for the pint-sized pick-up. We're used to seeing these modified but sporting original paint complete with rust spots and plenty of body damage. This example, however, has been painted, fitted with a tasteful drop and wheels and its rear roll pan cleaned up for a more modern look.

The new calendar is available to attendees and autographed by the Toyo girls on hand and just in front of the booth are Toyo's hand-picked display cars. For this particular gallery we're giving you a glimpse at some of the fan vehicles that made their way to the event. Look forward to those curated Toyo cars in a separate article that will be up shortly.

This one, lowered on Simbolo X Wheels, sports a wild livery and drew quite a bit of attention.

If the livery or ultra-wide body extensions didn't grab people's attention, then the fierce bark of their ear-piercing exhaust certainly did.

The booming off-road following has certainly made its mark in the tuner market as of late and we expect you'll see plenty more of these types of builds at meets and shows throughout the year.
