The middle of September treated us with a show that you won’t often see. The streets of Downtown San Pedro were closed down and made the scene of one of the hottest block parties in LA. From sunrise to the wee hours of the night, Hot Import Nights 2015 was on and in full force. This show was a lot bigger than the one HIN (Hot Import Nights) hosted in San Pedro last year. At nearly double the size, and probably twice the capacity, this show was massive.
Featuring the hottest cars in Southern California and from around the country rolled in and set up shop in a two-block section of beautiful downtown San Pedro. It was a pleasant surprise to see cars from all types and classes come together and packed in such a tight area. It was definitely something to see. Cars parked within inches of each other and the hustle and bustle of huge crowds pouring through the streets really made the setting intimate. Even though it was an open air show (right in the middle of open businesses), one really got to know the people they were walking by.
The cars and the owners of the cars really put together a nice display. Teams such as Hybrid, Legacy and Evolve poured in and made their presence known to everyone. The cars glistened under the night lights (and some with their own lights) and the party on the main stage just brought the entire neighborhood down. The hottest models in the scene (even some from across the country like Marie Madore) and vendors made the show a lot more than just a local show.
To say that this show was great would be a huge understatement. Not only was it a show with so much to offer, but, we at Spektrum were boothed up and showing off for the first time. The show hit a significant tone with us, and meant a lot. One definitely puts their heart on their sleeve when they show for that first time, and we couldn’t have been more excited for what came from it. Hopefully some of the pictures you see here and on our social media pages will give you an idea of the great time we had at the show. It truly was a great time, and a teaser of things to come. We definitely can’t wait until the next show not only for us, but, to see what Hot Import Nights brings us. It’s nice to see the old HIN that we all knew and loved is making a roaring comeback. This next year is going to be a big one
We at Spektrum would like to give a very special thanks to Hot Import Nights for hosting us and for being most helpful. We can’t wait to work with you once again
