The Friday before Subiefest was extremely hectic and stress filled. Because there was extra work to be done to the car to fix the rust and dents, Jamie just picked up the car on Friday afternoon, leaving us that night to put all the parts on. Jamie’s new Sparco seats and rails along with her HT Autos lip and diffuser. We usually don’t have any bad luck stories to tell about Friday the 13th’s… but that night, so many things went wrong that we didn’t end up sleeping until close to 3am.We left at 6:30am and met up with Kenji at a Starbucks close to the event and cruised over to Auto Club Speedway. We saved a spot for Mitch when we got there and he showed up a few minutes later. First picture of Jamie’s car after the paint job. Rear diffuser on as well as my old rear spats that fit nicely and went well with the new diffuser. Front lip color matched. It was great to see all three cars sitting alongside one another. It’s not very often that you see more than one of these cars showing at an event. Kenji’s RHD WRX STi wagon. A lot of people don’t know that these existed. Straight from japan with a lot of goodies to prove it. We met Kenji back at Wekfest 2012 when he had his old GF8 and we asked him what suspension he was on (Wekfest 2012). It was a surreal feeling for Jamie to be showing with him at Subiefest. He ended up winning the Best 93-01 Impreza award. Mitch’s EJ25 swapped GF8. This guy is extremely funny and down to earth. Met him at the Temecula Tuesday meet a couple months ago. We decided to head out into the crazy heat and check out the other cars and vedors. Awesome rally fitted gc8. Rocky’s WRX peeking out of the Premium auto styling booth. Funny, we didn’t see him the whole time we were there. EVO’s were no stranger to Subiefest. This one was even female owned. Auto cross track. When I got back from the bathroom Jamie was getting asked questions from people. More than a few of her instagram followers showed to up to say hi as well. Quick look at Mitch’s swap. Kenji’s bay. Mitch’s Shock top shifter and Bride seats. Without Kenji’s easy up we would have died that day. Way too hot and not enough water to go around. We even brought a cooler with drinks but it didn’t last us long. We ended up ordering some pizza and some of the guys went to the front to pick it up. Kind of funny how they had to deliver to the track.Aside from the heat and some disorganization regarding the show itself, it was a great show. The best part was just hanging out with a bunch of new friends with common interests.
