Aloha, bitches! While half of the country was frozen this winter, we were lucky enough to spend a few days in beautiful Hawaii. Jealous much? Just kidding! It's hard not to rub it in, but rest assured, we didn't waste the entire weekend on the beach. We came home with a report on one of their biggest car shows of the year—Wekfest!
This is the third time the Wekfest tour has occurred in paradise and each event gets bigger and better. This year, the location changed to indoor venue Neil Blaisdell Center, which ended up being a blessing as rain was forecasted all weekend. The show was filled with nothing but Hawaii's hottest rides. We've highlighted our favorites here, but also check our website for more cool cars we just didn't have enough room for.
