Meet Life: 626 S2k BBQ

After I got back from Asia, the 626 crew had a small bbq meet. I feel like I post too many meet pictures, let me know if you want to see more of something else. I’m documenting my automotive life on this blog through my eyes and writing down my own thoughts.  I am messing around with different editing styles so the same car looks a bit different in each picture, the lighting keep changing from different angles.  If anyone has any photo editing tips for me, I’m all ears.

There were some NSXs in attendance.

I’m not really feeling the wheels, I feel like they are too aggressive for this car.

I like well rounded cars and this isn’t one of them…..just having a rear diffuser and nothing else seems off….rocking a Euro plate when the car isn’t remotely European seems really strange to me….

Everyone hanging out and grilling…………………..
This black NA1 NSX is a bit more tasteful.  I like the Recaro Pole positions ..
Desmond Regamaster Evo, always a fresh look on Hondas….Now that I think about it I never seem on any other make, maybe it’s a Honda thing.
GT One Exhaust!
Making some Tacos!  On a side note, I’m loving the Mexican food on this coast, the east coast doesn’t compare.
Clement Kwong came out in his tracked out S2k.  He’s pretty slick on the track nowadays, I’m sure he’s gonna break sub 2 at Button Willow soon!  You’ve seen him on this blog before, he’s rocking a rep mugen bumper since he tracks the hell out of this car and legit J’s racing Fenders.
I like the stance of his car, he’s running Nitron Coilovers, Clement swears on his life that these are the best coilovers for the money.  I believe him with that laptimes he is putting down.

The black NA1 was rocking a center mounted voltex wing…. I’m not a big fan of center mounted wings on the NSX…..  Also his Honda Emblem lights up at night…..I wish it didn’t…….
The guy hosting the meet brought out his Nissan GTR R32.  Right now these are coming into the country by the boat loads, it’s still pretty difficult to get one registered in California even with the 25 year rule.  The car looked decent from 10 feet away, but as I got closer I noticed some flaws…..  I’m pretty sure the door in supposed to be closed in this picture….
The front vent was coming off, it looks like they used some caulk to keep it sticking in.  There was the same caulk all around his rear window too.
It is still a GTR after all, I’m sure some things can be fixed.
Not pictured, the side seal is pretty done too…. getting things like seals are probably the most expensive since they are already high cost vehicle specific parts and you have to import them…..  My suggestion for anyone getting a R32 GTR, find the cleanest one you can find even if it costs a little bit more.  The auction houses in Japan sells cars by different grades depending on the quality and condition.  I feel like importers buy the lower quality grade cars and mark them up…..do your homework.

The old school Nismo rims are pretty rad.  They were also a bunch of S2ks there, but nothing really caught my eye…..
