Skyrise 2014: Napierville, QC

Written by Jeremy Alan Glover | Photos by Jeremy Alan Glover During the Modified: End of the Season Bash at Napierville Dragway on October 13, 2014, the Auto Acethetic staff organized a mini-event during their own show called Skyrise, a huge Skyline and GT-R meet. The original plan was to try and beat the current world record for most Skylines at one place and at the same time. At 150-160 Skylines in attendance, Skyrise was not successful in a world record, but nonetheless, the event was epic! Seeing so many skylines at the same place was pretty special. They had…

Every year the audio portion of the event has grown to the extreme. You couldn't walk through the…

The JDM-specific Nisei Week show held in downtown LA is one of the best shows for Japanese car fans. The show is small consisting of a tight knit group of JDM enthusiasts who are reinventing how trends will develop. By definition Nisei Week is a cultural celebration of all of the first generation of Americans of Japanese descent (the Nisei) many of whom are car crazy! Last year we reported that the Nisei Week show was coming to an end at its 10th anniversay. However, The 11th annual actually happened and the show did not disappoint.The pictures speak for themselves…
