Club history: Autoconceptelite started 10 years ago on the west coast, but I decided to build a strong east coast team to dominate all classes.

Shows attended: SEMA, Tunerwars, Streetwars, Carlisle, Spring Nationals, Summer Slam, Honda Day, OC Carshow, and many local events as well.

Future plans: To continue to dominate on the east coast and travel to the west to combine with our west coast teammates.

Membership/models: Membership is free but every member but agree and approve all new members before becoming official! We currently have 2-3 models but always looking for new faces

Final thoughts: I feel right now we are the best team on the east and I believe numbers don’t show best, quality shows best. We might not have numbers like a lot of teams on the east, but we have quality and when we pull into shows, (the) looks on people’s faces say it all.
