White Hatch - alcantara interior, sick suspension, nice sound system
White Sedan - jdm god, push start, 475whp on E85 running a built motor, STi 6spd and Dominator 1.5XTR, JDM S206 exhaust (only one in US)
Silver Hatch - full retard car, 420whp on 93, built motor, Dominator 1.5XTR, RCE Tarmac2 coilovers, Benz Alanite Gray SLS AMG paint, full alcantara interior, competition sound system, etc etc etc. car was NUTS

quick blurb on the meet up

This community is really about people and some of us got the idea to get together. Not a local meet-up...not track day...just members with cars hanging out in a location that we all decided would be cool. With drives that were as long as 1,200 miles, all of us got together in Chicago to check out each others cars and hang out with family.

We all have really different approaches to our cars which makes it really cool to see them all sitting together.

States represented: New York, New Jersey, Georgia, Minnesota, Missouri and Maine

this was my post about the meet up

Quote:
this was probably the best trip i've ever been a part of, we had 6 of the coolest guys (and their families) in one place. besides how amazing all these cars are, they really are incredible people.

we all drove distance, no one was from chicago, we all drove roughly 8400 miles combined. coming from as far away as Portland, Maine and as close St Louis, Missouri. we had every modding style in one place at once. this trip was a perfect representation of what this community is about. you had people with JDM obsessions, carbon fetishes, cravings for power, simplicity at it's best, everything was represented. we all had mods, some more than others, but there was something we appreciated about everyones car. i can't count the number of times in caravans i was oogling everyones cars. i was blown away constantly. honestly i dont consider my car to be much special, i am honestly honored to have been asked to join this trip and experience. you meet some people in communities that become friends, good friends. these were those people. the jokes, the just drinking and enjoying the company, shooting ideas, learning. the amount of knowledge that was assembled with us 6 was nothing short of incredible.

the amount of power by the way was well north of 2000, xluben being the majority of that. at no point was this a dick measuring contest, we respected each others cars and modding direction. we had Rotas, Advans, Works, Weddsports, and Enkeis. all of which looked incredible, multiple power levels, multiple looks, everything.

i honestly can't even put into words how insane some of these vehicles are.

rsutton - that paint is just incredible as is your sound system and interior. you'll never be able to capture that color, it's insanity. and you are such a great dude with a cool attitude and next time dsutton will be there and it'll be a great time.

xluben - your car is just full *ing retard. the brake boost and that much power is pure insanity, and the knowledge you have about these cars and how they function and all the little tricks is awesome. it was a pleasure to learn from you.

jive - man, what do you say. underglow, weiners, the whole 9 yards. you are truly one of a kind. you fit in so well with the kids.

flex - the jdm sexyness is incredible. you had the meanest looking car, going down the road it's the kind of car that eats small children and destroys worlds. it is a beautiful machine. the attention to detail is nothing short of incredible.

overland - you are probably one of the most laid back dudes i've ever met, always willing to go with the flow. everything on your car is so well thought out and purposeful. it truly is one of the best DD cars on this forum. it serves it's purpose so well.

i was honored to be a part of this, it was awesome. the pics are amazing and there are so many. just wanted to say this bit, really appreciated it guys. you are all awesome dudes. seeing some of the iconic cars on this forum in person was awe inspiring to say the least, blows minds in person.

thanks guys!

The underglow on the FRS had me giggling.

I like your sedan. Really simple.

I really want to love the BRZ, but the underglow and stickers are too much :/

It's frustrating to me how clean and fast WRXs are. My old roommate just got a 2013 STI and let me drive it around—damn.
