So-Cal Import Nights Event Coverage 2011
Long, long ago in a car show usually not so far away usually, there used to be a brand of entertainment that placed the term "Import Nights" into an almost legendary status. But lately, there has been a question as to what that term means today, the here and now. And suddenly, a beacon of light from the sky (or rather this number next to a calendar insignia on my facebook) flashed before my eyes on facebook. With my curiosity heightened, I clicked on the number, and there it was. The awesome radiance of those two beloved words: "Import Nights." But this wasn't just "Hot." No, it had two extra sylables. This was So-Cal Import Nights. Next I realized that I'm in So-Cal and that was a perfect fit for my situation. It wasn't long till I grabbed my Lexus and headed over to where the fun would be.
So-Cal Import Nights was held at AJP Distributors in Industry, CA, JDM Sport's West Coast Distributor headquarters. Despite the date being on Mother's Day, there was already a good turnout at the event when I arrived. Booths were set up as well as a stage on the side of the building. The music was playing. It was pretty good and then the JDM models came out from hiding. That just made it all the more better. Then, they told me they had to freshen up. So, guys, when a woman needs to do their thing, you know...you let them do their thing. You'll be well rewarded in the end, as I was when the event really geared up.
I caught up with Jamie Lynn, who if you can remember from previous coverage was at Sideways Sundays and Formula Drift representing the Daily Driven Car Meet in Pomona. To tell you the truth, I always thought she looked like a model, but she never said she was particularly. I didn't want to assume anything. Now that the announcer was saying she was a JDM model, I just went for it. I hate to admit it but I think I started a mob as more and more photographers gathered around. Suddenly, an "I love you" is jokingly belted in the background from her smirking boyfriend. After that, a bit of shyness came about and she went back to her booth to kid around with her buds. But that's really Jamie, a chill fun-loving spirit. Oh, you guys want pictures, right?
Afterwards, I went around and found another JDM model at her booth. Approaching her for a photo op, I was also greated by Jamie's boyfriend who was all the more happy for me to take more pictures of her. I said sure (that's what MV status gets you, guys). Jamie directed me to her car parked nearby, and we took a couple more.
Amber Grace was a new face on the scene, at least to me. Haven't seen her at any shows before, but I'm definitely glad she's here now. Let's all take a little gander.
So, MODELS, if you see ModelVanity roaming around your event, don't be shy. In this business, you have to be loud and proud of who you are. You know it's all about the vanity...ModelVanity.
A special Happy Mothers Day to all the mommy models out there. You guys are great!
