We covered a Top of the Line Imports meet last year, and it was a good time. People go the extra mile to get their car ready for the meet and, for most, it showed. This year’s meet was no different.
This thing really stood out to me. It’s a Volvo C30 on air! The C30’s are already handsome little moosen, but put some good looking wheels on one and bag it and it becomes something else entirely.
All the cool kids are bagging their cars, and most of them are not afraid of showing off their tanks and compressors. I saw a lot of people who ditched the carpet in the trunk in favor of some hardwood. Nobody had any parquet though…
Someone went down their own path with the “hardwood” idea. Good for you hockey enthusiast, good on you.
One person decided to buck convention, and not mount their tank on the trunk floor.
More modern cars made up the majority of the vehicles, but some classics came out. This ’28 Ford Model A, complete with a stained glass rear window.
And there was a Volkswagen Type 181, the Kurierwagen, lovingly known here as The Thing! It was surfed out, complete with a short board sticking out the back.
And in the shadow of another classic, stood the penultimate piece of classic JDM goodness.
Summer is officially over, that doesn’t mean the meets are; however, bigger meets with hundreds of cars and DJs and pizzas are. But you can bask in the glow of the pictures on your screen and reminisce about the good times.
