As a yearly tradition Nisei carshow is held in the little town called Los Angeles in a spot aptly named Little Tokyo. Hosted by mainstream productions Nissei brings out the best of the best in the JDM Scene. Unlike all the other shows out there, in Nisei Showoff, there is no need for crazy bling, no glitz and glamour, no prize for a fantabulous displays, but all it is is what you have in your car. It’s a CARshow.
It was a very hot and humid day but still people flock around the awesome show cars. We brought out 14 cars for our crew and did a pretty awesome job with the show. Not that many awesome quality cars like past Nissei’s but there are some that certainly grabbed my attention. One of which is this old school DA1 (correct me if i’m wrong) 86-89 integra. Cleaaaan car. I actually saw him cruise by on the way to the show down the 101 and immediately grabbed my attention. Props to this car and owner. He’s sporting an Old School HKS license plate holder too. Not sure if he won tho but i’d give him something just for keeping that car nice and clean inside and out. To think this car has been around for over 20 years and it’s still immaculate. It is indeed gangsta!!
Of course there are the usual people. There’s Lisa Uchida and the crew, Tommy Ha and his, now boosted, S2K, Albert Chang’s whored out (JK) S2K, Team Hybrid and 200 of their cars and Rudy’s Gold Plated RSX to name a few. Since it’s Nisei there’s a plethora of Hondas, Mostly Hatches, that showed up.
A cool one that was there was a Honda Element with A K24 and ARC Bits. Pretty cool since it’s a rare thing to see both in the show scene and on the streets. Now with the heat baring down upon us, I just want to say thank you to everybody that brought a canopy. Also thank you Edwin from autoimportcraze[dot]com and using his brain to bring a cooler filled with ice and refreshments. Also to Riceboy TV for giving away some Popsicles. But just to say Fuck You to the heat, we just ended up walking to a nearby restaurant and have lunch in a AC filled room… Ended up in Ebisu… Restaurant not the circuit. Good shit for a reasonable price.
As the day died down, so did the crowd and the time we’ve been waiting for has come upon us. The Awarding. We did pretty well as always clenching the best of shows and the best team awards (was there any doubt hehe jk) and being the big asses that we are, we took one of our AC Elite Canopy and planted it right in the middle of the awarding ceremony for us and others to share the shade it provided. After all we are nice people. Anyhoo here’s the breakdown on how we did and what we won.
