Of all of the events that I have been too, one of the events I’ve enjoyed the most was WEKFEST SF. Last year was my very first time attending the event and right away I knew there was something very different about WEKFEST SF than any of the other events I have attended. I am not able to pin point exactly what made it special, all I knew is that I was looking forward to go back there again this year. I told a few peeps that this was the event to go see! I mean it’s no wonder why people line up so early to get into this show.

 

The days preceding the trip up to the Bay Area went by quick. Since I was taking some time off past the weekend of the event, this meant I had the workload of 8 days my regular working week. Unfortunately, I was not able to leave with the small group that drove out of Phoenix sometime Thursday morning (which I heard was a lovely drive). So my plan was to fly out Friday night with Nolan and meet up with everybody in San Francisco. Friday evening came too soon, even my coworkers were telling me I was going to miss my flight. The original plan was to meet Nolan and drive together to the airport. Since I was running late, we decided to meet at the airport instead. It was a mad rush to pack and get ready, but we both made it to the airport on time. Once we made it past the security check point, we found out our flight was delayed, so the rushing was pretty much not even needed. Once we boarded, the flight went without a hiccup and we got to SFO rather quickly. Our time waiting at both airports actually felt longer than the flight itself. After a quick stop at Dan’s house for a late night dinner and some adult beverages, we decided to call it a night and get ready for the show the next day.

 

The plan for Saturday was to leave early, have a proper breakfast, and drive south to San Jose. This was partially ruined by no other than Paul and his famous ironing. I swear at one point I thought he was going to start ironing his shoe laces. As you know WEKFEST has a new home in the Bay Area; the San Jose Convention Center. I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about this but I just went along. I was just eager to see some of the debuting cars. Once we got to the convention center, we started unloading and helping Matt set the ICB booth. For some reason, I thought they had done this the day before. Unloading and setting up the booth took longer than I expected. When I saw the time, I realized that I had less than 60 minutes to walk around and take some photos before the doors opened for the general public. I knew after this it was going to be harder to take photos.

 

So I grabbed my camera and I ventured off.

Ryan, Paul, and Nolan setting up the ICB booth. I wonder if the Intern ended up getting any hugs from strangers.

This aggressive S2000 was our neighbor and it attracted a lot of people throughout the day.

At the ICB booth, Matt was debuting new bucket seats. We were super excited for him.

A car I really wanted to see was Jay Calderon’s Integra; which he was debuting at WEKFEST. I know he had been stashing some parts for a while. However, it was not until a few weeks prior to the event that I learned RC from RC Garage was putting some work on Jay’s and getting it ready for WEKFEST. From what I heard, the build came down to the wire. Glad RC got it done. The engine bay is an attention grabber to say the least. And of course, always nice to see an AZ car.

Another AZ car and the ever-changing gold EG. Jorge Hernandez was sporting a new look. Sergeant front bumper with a Kevlar First Molding front lip and matching Kevlar First Molding mirrors. It is always good to see Jorge’s EG.

Teddy Timoteo’s EK was also sporting a front lip, canards, and mirrors from First Molding.

Another debut at WEKFEST was this blue Integra from ATS Garage.

Chris Sakai’s EK on Mugen MF10 wheels. Last time I saw Chris’ EK, it was sporting white RegaMaster Evos. Now I have a very soft spot for the RegaMasters. However, I like the way the MF10s look on his Civic. I really like this wheel set up.

As I kept going down the row, it felt as if you were stepping into a time machine. Coming across some old school. Classy wheels on this Accord, Racing Hart C5 wheels and GRreddy front lip.

Next to it was an Integra on Work JWING wheels

Next to another Integra on RS Watanabe wheels.

Which was next to another Integra on Gales wheels.

At the very end was this Toyota Corolla which culminated the old-school-feel in that area. The Corolla looked as if it came out of the factory. So clean so clean. I was hoping to have a talk with the owner but then I heard over the speakers “5 minutes before we open the doors”, so I kept on shooting.

Next to it was a Toyota Corolla wagon, both cars were mint.

Couple more photos of Dina Sakai’s S2000. I love the aggressive lines of the J’s fenders.

I saw Chris Ortez’s Infiniti G sedan for the first time last year at WEKFEST Long Beach and it really caught my eye. Since then, he has changed the front bumper to make room for the intercooler. I have to say I am really digging this look.

Next to it was another G sedan on Rays Nismo LM GT4 wheels.

And a couple more G sedans, I think one of them ( I don’t remember his name) made it all the way from Arizona…sweet.

Another Liberty Walk M3 coupe

The Zed 4..I think these cars look rather soft. However, this Liberty Walk Z4 was far from that.

From a quick side-glance, I thought this was a BMW 2000. But upon further inspection I was surprised to find out it was an Audi.

The IS grill is starting to grow on me.

MB C-Class from Stance Lab

Mr. ICB himself.

I will stop for today with a photo of the famous Intern doing what he does best. Probably dreaming of 4x4s.
