T-Demand and Central Pine threw their first USDM-VIP Event at K-1 speed in Anaheim, CA this past weekend. The lot was pretty much full with local vendors advertising their businesses and a bumpin’ DJ booth by the entrance. Central Pine had their Toyota Crown, which they debuted at the show after being brought from Texas. The cool part was seeing the SoCal VIP community coming together, even with builds in the “under construction” phases.

Despite running into some air management trouble, Johnny aka “Frankenstein” was able to roll through the Simply Fresh booth last minute:
Two of our Liberty members took home some hardware. Brandon aka “Kurly” won best camber running in at -13 degrees (pictured below). Thank you Mr. Tanaka from T-Demand for handing us the awards.
Pauly T took home best Nissan/Infiniti:
Some of the other reputable clubs/brands/shops at the show included: Top Ups, PureLex, Pure-VIP, Infinitewerks, Endless Projects, Crown VIP, Simply Fresh, and Karuma Limited. One thing we especially liked was when an award was announced, the winner drove their car to the front where they were given the trophy. Spectators were able to match the car with the driver.
Congrats to the other winners as well: Best of Show- Johnny Pham, Best Lexus- Tommy Le, Best Air- Chris Kim, Best Interior: Damien Abrams, Best Static- Anthony McCoy, and Best Euro- Johnny Sou. For now, please enjoy the rest of the pictures brought to you by Pure Lex member: Anthony Campos. Give him a look on IG: @ucf20_tony. We look forward to the next VIP meet.
