Gotta give Siu credit for spreading the word about this - I'm not, and never have been a Lexus owner, but a free event a mile from my house was too good to pass up.
Priorities straight - washed the car last night, went to church with the kids, dropped daughter off at home so she can go to the mall with my mom and dad, and took the boy to Irwindale Speedway.
Nice collection of cars. It was a bit too spread out, though - there would be a cluster of cars surrounded by empty space, and then another cluster of cars, etc. It would have been nicer if it was in a more concentrated area and maybe if they grouped it according to chassis/model.
The drag race was cool - always nice to see comparable models run side-by-side. Irwindale is a 1/8th strip, and temps were a little on the warm side in the low 80s. The sound of an IS-F at full-tilt is pretty intoxicating.
Anyhow, here are a few snaps -
Your cup of tea or not, gotta respect the fender work and fitment -
I thought Siu came down to surprise me but no such luck - it was a poseur
