So, you won’t usually see me covering events in Los Angeles. You won’t even see me covering events in the United States. I’m from the UK, as you would know if you follow my Drift Allstars coverage. This is an awesome, new scene to me. I loved it. And you should totally make the jump.
I’m over here to cover events until the end of July. I was meant to be heading up to Pikes Peak in a couple of weeks, but it looks like that’s now off the menu. Sensing my depression over this fact, out fearless leader Drew Fishbein figured it would be cool to show me the local scene, and yesterday night there was word of a big meet at Big Boy Burgers in Northridge.
Now, I’m not just from the UK. I live in the middle of nowhere. We don’t have things like this where I’m from, so this was really, REALLY cool to see.
The build quality of these machines is spectacular. I can’t believe these things are driven on the road!
We don’t really have silly licence plates in the UK, so a slammed 350Z with an ‘Officer Please!’ plate made me giggle a little.
It wasn’t all hardparked stuff. There were quite a few drift cars. And this was the first time I’ve seen an 86 street driven.
And who says drifting can’t be a little bit fancy? Heart shaped exhausts and pink wheels are the bomb.
Also of the smaller variety. The 86 from earlier in the post had a little replica RC car on its roof. Super cool.
Also, we love them for running one of our stickers! You can get them yourself right here.
There was a really nice little vintage contingent too. You guys are really lucky to have such a brilliant selection of cars on the road, for such low prices compared to the UK.
Anyways, I’m off to do more cool stuff. You can follow my non-car adventures in California over at my personal blog. I’ve got some super cool car adventures coming though, so stay tuned!
