Event: GridLife Round 2: Offset Kings Chicago

Offset Kings returns to the Chicago area! Our friends over at JDM Chicago and Fatlace worked with GridLife to bring this exclusive car showcase to our area. Featuring a few familiar cars and other new ones, there was a broad range of cars present on the grass. Check out our photo coverage of a few of the cars from this past weekend!

RAL_3544


RAL_3474

We wandered over to the JDMC booth to say hi and work our way across the field of cars. Here is Mike’s Evo X on TE37RTs. Can these wheels look bad? We don’t think so.

RAL_3475

Neat little Toyota Matrix that was at the show, really aggressive fitment.

RAL_3477

Right on the quarter panel!

RAL_3479

Nice RE30s on this 350Z.

RAL_3483

AJ of Risky Devil brought out his 4 door drift mobile.

RAL_3487

Oh the Nostalgia.

RAL_3491

Colored tint will always be cool when done properly.

RAL_3494

The Chicago XB group was out in full force.

RAL_3497

Super clean C4 in the show.

RAL_3485

Once VIP catches on here in Chicago, it’s going to be insane. Coming from the south, Atlanta VIP is only getting bigger and bigger and more impressive and outlandish. The West Coast and East Coast already have their foot in the door, it’s only a matter of time until Chicago drinks the Kool-aid.

RAL_3499

Gene’s 370Z is immaculate. Him and his wife Christine have been building cars for decades and never disappoint in their choices or style. We’ve been building Christine’s turbo 280Z essentially from the ground up, if you want to check out the process on that be sure to check out our earlier blog posts!

Part 3

RAL_3502

Young Ko is getting some new goodies for his S2000 soon! Keep an eye on him in the future.

RAL_3505

Type X S13s are just gorgeous. There is no going wrong with this aero on these cars.

RAL_3509

Really nice example of an FRS. Varis kitted and TE37 wearing.. killer combo.

Ray’s ND Miata rocking its V2 look!

Smushed Ryuko!

RAL_3516

Really nice 370Z! These cars are becoming increasingly popular with full fledged builds.
