Wekfest Chicago 2016

RAL_0867-2

Wekfest USA returned to the Chicago area for the first time in over 5 years, and here is the result!
Tons of quality cars came out of the woodwork and from coast to coast to show what they have been up to this winter. Many over the top builds were present, some familiar cars with a few updates, and some classics. Thank you to everyone who stopped by the TF booth and said hi, enjoy a few photos and the gallery from some of the cars of Wekfest!

There were a handful of very clean Integra Type R’s at the show, these two Phoenix Yellow ITR’s went the Mugen route.
