There's a new car show on the block, and the inaugural event just blew everyone out of the water. We're talking about the Blox Evolution show. Blox is widely known for producing aftermarket parts for popular platforms such as the Honda Civic, Acura Integra, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, and others. Normally Blox Racing hosts an open house every year, but new for this year the staff tried their hand at a full-fledged car show, and they did not disappoint.
Instead of the traditional convention center, Blox Evolution was held at San Francisco's Pier 70, an abandoned warehouse, which provided a unique rustic background for the 500-plus cars that showed up. Children under 12 were admitted for free and had access to a jumphouse or the RC drift course, making the event super family friendly. Mike from Blox reported, "The turn out was great! The venue was about 200,000 square feet and we filled about 95 percent [of it] with cars. We're already planning for next year's event, and because we don't want to conflict with other shows such as Extreme Auto Fest, Spocom, or Formula D we're shooting for February or March."
It's clear that Northern California has a very different but equally awesome car style compared to Southern California. For example, Kris Yu's NSX - you wouldn't notice it, but it flosses a very subtle custom wide body as well as a few JDM and USDM pieces. In fact, the majority of Kris's teammates from Endless Projects opted for the subtle wide body feature. Kris says, "The show reminded me of the good old days when it was just about the cars and the community instead of just making money. Overall the attention to detail was great. The food and proper facilities were a big plus. I've been to so many shows where the venue has only one food station and two bathrooms. I absolutely love the underground look as well. Blox Evolution will be the show you don't want to miss next year."
A few other highlights from the show included Drew's LS swapped Mazda FD RX-7 and Michael's freshly painted purple EVO IX. Tucked in the corner of the venue was David Uy's amazing Rocket Bunny GT-R, which is possibly the only one in the United States. Also for your viewing pleasure we grabbed our friend Hazel away from the crowd for a quick photo shoot.
We've always loved attending Blox events, whether it was an open house or a block party, and we're sure that Blox Evolution is only at the beginning of a great car show tradition.
