It’s pretty rare that I go to meets or well, Scratch that. Its super rare that I go to meets and actually be excited to attend and on top of that travel a good distance. Especially if my ass has to wake up at 6:30am! Haha, Thank god for the daylight saving switchback. So this past weekend the guys of AutoFashionUSA threw their 6th Annual VIP festival held at their shop location down in San Diego. We’ve known the guys over at AF for quite a while, So I thought I’d come out and support their event! I was lucky enough to hitch a ride with Mizzark in his M5. Also joining along side with us the ride down was Ming, Owner of Standard Functions w/ his awesome Infiniti M45. So I get picked up bright and early, We load up take a quick pit stop and set sail down the good ol’ 5 freeway. When we got to the the shop the meet was already madness! AutoFashions private lot was packed to the max. The neighboring building’s parking lots were overrunned with quite a lot of cars. Luckily it was sundays and most of the neighbors were closed. The turn out of cars was Great, Quality of cars was top notch & the people were overall behaved. Minus a couple Idiots speeding their way off hopefully into a ticket or a blown motor.
Anyways, overall the event was awesome! Best of the best VIP cars out in the scene today at one locations. People visiting from numerous states and staying that extra week after being in town for SEMA in vegas. It was a big detour but it was well worth it. More than just the cars, It was great to be in good company of old and new friends. Great job to the Autofashion gang for throwing such a dope event. Definitely cant wait till next year. Just gave me a little more inspiration for own GS430 project. We’ll for sure see you next year!
Enjoy the coverage guys.

Daddy Leon and Baby Tae making the journey from LA as well. I kid you not, Tae has been to more car shows and car meets than he can count… Cause really he can count yet… get it… jk… But really hes going to grow up schooling all the kids his age about cars.
This LS430 from SquadOne has been on of my favorite builds this year. From it’s one off body kit to a fullly custom bright red leather interior. I absolutely LOVE this car. I’ve actually been a fan of squad one for years now. I still remember watching one their old YouTube vids way back when. Their style was great then and even greater now. The owner of this LS took it to another level and made a gorgeous ride.
Im a big fan of Wagons and Vans. This first Gen Honda Odyssey caught my attention from far away. Full Garson Kit on AirRunner suspension. I also had a chance to chat with the owner. He was coming all the way from Texas! wow. Thats some dedication for a car meet! He did attend SEMA the week before but thats one awfully big detour. But I’m glad he made the trip. This odyssey was definitely a favorite of mine
