There’s something about car shows at the Queen Mary that make it unique. Whether it’s the Long Beach Harbor or the historical Queen Mary as the backdrop, every car show held here seems to draw many spectators and makes a perfect place for beautiful pictures. Wekfest 2017 is no exception! The weather couldn’t have been any better with the sun shining combined with a cool ocean breeze coming from off the harbor. What a way to kick-off the Memorial Day Weekend and WekFest LA 2017.
Wekfest 2017: Welcome to the show!
At the break of dawn, the Queen Mary parking lot is the staging area for hundreds of cars waiting anxiously to roll in to Wekfest 2017. If you haven’t been there that early to experience it or seen any of the infamous videos on YouTube, I highly recommend it. One of the distinctive things that make the roll in an entertaining thing to watch is the tunnel and the driveway from hell that most cars have to go through to get to their spots. This area has taken many casualties as many stanced cars go “off roading”. Luckily all of our booth cars made it in once piece.
It’s was great to see the diversity of builds from supercars to minivans. The VIP scene definitely represented this year. There were daily driven builds to full-on racecars, which in my opinion are the best show cars.
The CSF booth undeniably exemplified a great assortment of vehicles to exhibit the range of products from Honda to Porsche radiators, along with intercooler cores that Sheepy Built is using to develop a twin-turbo kit for a Lamborghini Huracan.
One of our favorite cars from the show was this incredible Acura DC2 Integra that was parked in the Mackin Industries wheels booth. It was owned by Ahmed, who also so happens to work for our dealer VividRacing.com (goes by @Hamfam2 on IG). His gorgeous engine bay with top-of-the-line craftsmanship and titanium bits was finished off with CSF’s new Ultimate ½ radiator!
The high-end & advanced threaded design of the Ultimate ½ rad from CSF, really completed the look that Ahmed was searching for. (Part #2858X)
One last thing before signing off….The photo below was pretty much our view for the day. We were contemplating on how much people would buy this car for? I know it’s a random thought but let us know in the comments below what you’d pay for it!
