Importfest2002 - 20$ down the drain.

I think it was nothing exciting...few bimmers were there, totally riced up Z3 M fully in plastic some crazy color and the lights were covered....anyway i saw few good sound systems and hummer, oh yeah and i liked one green SUPRA which i saw in yorrkdale when there were some cars inside really nice....who else whent there?

Honestly from the pics I dont know why any maxbimmer members went out to compete. The BMW's there didnt look like anything special so......I think the some of the BMW's here can do better than some of the cars there.............

The thing is, you pay 20 bucks to see car's you've already seen at other shows. plus another 20 bucks for parking!!

Secondly, I dunno who, but they decided to put the show so late!! Who holds an import show in winter? All the cars are gonna get all salty comming to the show.. so half of the people probably decided not to show up for that reason.

From the pictures, the turn out didnt seem too good compared to last year..

It had to be like in september or early november, cuz it was still quite warm, they had the roof open, and I remember that lady bug problem we had last year, cuz they were flying everywhere..

Yeah I went last and it it's much better.
Warmer weather b/c on Sept....and it's not DURING EXAMS week! hehe

But all in all, I never did enjoy it, only when I saw Randy's car did I go crazy, hehe. A couple nice looking Audi's, Supra's and Subaru's!

Not 1 damn E-30 in the whole show. CRAP is what I thought the show was, Import Fest is supposed to be HUGE and hell Octane Overdose was better! That yellow BMW with the carbon fiber hood was nice but did you see how much he was selling it for? $37,900 yeah right buddy I wish you luck but you aint getting rid of it at that price. Damn there was even one civic hatch that was so dirty it was embarassing to look at; at least wash your car for the show!

I spent my $20 at the club where I got to look at HOT girls insted of honda's with big wings.

Would have liked to see the BM's even though it was olny 4 or 5 of them but i'm sure i'll see them at the next max meet. I went to import fest last year so i got my fill.. Might have went again if all the max members were hitting up Richmond and John St. after that would be fun.

hey, hey, hey.... c'mon guys. First of all, if you knew anything about doing some quality work to cars rather than just adding a chin spoiler or stickers, you'd appreciate this yellow "riced up Z3 M" Have you even heard of Giovanni wheels? Do you realize what color that is? let me give you a hint.... it comes stock on a Lamborghini. That car used to be black with silver stripes.... IT'S M-ATTACK ON THIS BOARD!!!
