Import Spring Showoff 2018

by Michael Chandler

Every year Import Spring Showoff grows.  And after a contentious break up with their previous venue, the move we all wanted to see came to fruition: the show made its way to Utah Motorsports Campus, and took on a motorsports festival vibe, inline with Gridlife or Hyperfest.

There were ride alongs with NASA Utah drivers, and Take Luck and NVG drifters.  There were tons of food trucks, vendor booths, and most importantly…

Doggos.  Check out the massive gallery Dave shot, and realize that you’ve gotta make it out next year!

ISS 2017: The Kinda Chilly-ing

by Michael Chandler

This past weekend there was either a car show, or the apocalypse.  All depends on how your social media saw the weekend’s storms.  I saw it as a car show, because at 8am (ish) I was in the parking lot of the Maverick Center watching the staff setup this year’s Import Spring Showoff.  Despite the previous day’s weather, a ton of people showed up for the show.  We saw a wide breadth of what the Utah scene has to offer.  There will be some highlights coming later, but in the meantime enjoy this gallery.

Be Bold, B Mini

by Michael Chandler

ISS 2016 CAMautoMag Michael Chandler-160

No, that title doesn’t contain a typo.  There was a Mini sporting a Honda B series engine.  And then some kids said that it was made of plastic, and I wanted to die.  But this sin’t about them.  This is about the tiny car, with the small motor, and an abundance of moxy!

ISS 2016 CAMautoMag Michael Chandler-162

The adorable little motor has four tiny velocity stacks protruding from four individual (probably fun sized!) throttle bodies.

ISS 2016 CAMautoMag Michael Chandler-164

Inside there’s… what is that on the left?  Is that a leg?!?

ISS 2016 CAMautoMag Michael Chandler-163 ISS 2016 CAMautoMag Michael Chandler-161

As you can see, the nose pops off for ease of access to the entirety of pretty much everything ahead of the firewall.  The fore section of the car can be placed at the rear of the car so as to create a nice photo opportunity.  We salute you, whoever you are!  And your diminutive pocket rocket too.

BEHOLD! A Van!

by Michael Chandler

ISS 2016 CAMautoMag Michael Chandler-136

Do you need to be deep in that VIP life, but also need to haul around kids, groceries, and other whatnot?  Well as the fine folks over at VANkulture have shown, vans can be gangster as hell.  And one such gangster van showed up to ISS.

ISS 2016 CAMautoMag Michael Chandler-3 ISS 2016 CAMautoMag Michael Chandler-2

This Honda Odyssey was sporting some Junction Produce neck pads for the driver and passenger, and a Recaro baby seat for… well, I’m assuming a baby.  Hanging from the wide mirror is a Tsuna know, and hanging from the OE rear view mirror is a Fusa knot.  Inside is some serious JDM hotness, but what about the outside?

ISS 2016 CAMautoMag Michael Chandler-1 ISS 2016 CAMautoMag Michael Chandler-137

Mmmm!  A set of WEDS Kranze LXZ wheels set off the exterior.  You don’t have to roll in a Lexus or an Infiniti to be VIP, sometimes you just need a van and a desire to let your inner gangster out.

It Plays: 2JZ FD

by Michael Chandler

ISS 2016 CAMautoMag Michael Chandler-17

ISS brings out almost everything, which is no surprise considering that it’s the biggest meet of the year.  A car we saw last year was Nick Hancock’s 2JZ swapped FD RX-7.  It wasn’t all the way there last year, but he took the year and buttoned it up.

ISS 2016 CAMautoMag Michael Chandler-16

The power plant is the same as it was a year ago: 2JZ with a big single turbo.  No need to mess with that winning combination.  See, we were drawn in by this Toyota motor in the Mazda chassis but Nick wasn’t quite ready for a shoot.  He was getting the car ready for paint, and well..

ISS 2016 CAMautoMag Michael Chandler-20 ISS 2016 CAMautoMag Michael Chandler-21

He didn’t paint it.  Instead, he too the car over to his friends at Utah Vinyl Worx for a matte white wrap.  Gone are the black bumpers and red everything else.  The FD looks amazing in white, and it can pull off a duckbill spoiler.

ISS 2016 CAMautoMag Michael Chandler-22

The interior also got a few touches.  Hopefully we can do a full shoot on this car soon, it’s been a year in the making.
