The ZMax Dragway in Charlotte, NC held this years Import Alliance Summer Meet. With thousands in attendance and a few dozen vendors, the event was jam packed with eye candy throughout the weekend. With such a big venue, I’m happy I brought by fixie along to cruise through what seemed like endless rows of cars. It was amazing to see how far people traveled for this meet. Seeing plates from Canada down to Florida is a great feeling knowing that the import scene is still going strong despite the lack of shows and events over the last few years. It was rad to meet a bunch of new people and see some old friends over the weekend. Enough rambling… Click the photos above and check out the gallery of photos from the weekend.

The company recently aqcuired new location and celebrated with some of their closest friends in and out of the scene. Check out the photos that Chinzo took and make sure you check out their entire clothing line at Presents – First Class Fitment

It’s not odd on the west coast to have shows and meets like JTuned, Niesi , Eibach and Chinatown showoff, just to name a few, which display some of the hottest and cleanest rides in the scene. Out here in the northeast, you’re more likely to see only a hand full of the same quality cars at the average car show and meet here. Canibeat decided to mix it up a bit with their First Class Fitment show.

The venue they chose was at a little bit of a different location that we normally go to. A airport hanger in Princeton, NJ hosted the 75 hand picked cars for the show where judging was based on wheel fitment and stance of the car. Crazy offset wheels, stretch tires and rolled fenders were a common theme and the sound of pressurized air being released was not far behind with cars rolling on air bags to get that extra low stance.
