I found a folder on my hard drive of some really old pictures. These are a few pictures from the 2004 SoCalRSX (now defunct) End-Of-Summer meet at Spugen in Norwalk (also now defuct).
I bought my car in the summer of 2004. Once I figured out how to drive stick, I went to my first meet at the Focus Plaza (99 Ranch Market) in San Gabriel. I met a few guys there (Dean and my boy Tony, now at APR Performance) and they invited me out to the End-Of-Summer meet.
Why am I posting these “wack” photos? I guess it reminded me how I got here.
This was probably one of the first times I saw Volk wheels in person. I remembered back then, Dat said Volk wheels were the best and I wanted the best. I took this picture because I wanted these wheels on my car. Don’t mind the ricey body kit, lol.
Back then, I really wanted a Z. I thought this was the best looking Z back then! I saw this Z at a few HINs after this.
A year after the meet, I ordered my Volk LE37s for $2000 OTD. Volks are like $3000 OTD now! The reason it was ordered in Dat’s name is because we used Dat’s hookup at SP Engineering.
Man, I really miss these days!
