For those of you guys that went, what did you think? Be honest: what was your favorite part of it all? What else would you like to see happen for next year? I promise the guys from IA will be on here, so if you comment, make it honest, and make it count. Personally – I thought it was the best f**king turnout, meet, and crowd I’ve seen in years. Reminded me of Nopi Nats back in the late 90s… so much pride and energy there. Everyone wanted to brag about how far they all drove to make the trip. Great time! This is exactly what this scene needed to see… let’s keep turning this sh*t around. For me – the best part was watching the mobs of people pouring in from the tunnel… even after the infield had filled up. Nashville Speedway was absolutely overrun; and it was awesome. Another favorite: watching the late night street racing go down on the interstate from our hotel balcony.
OMG it was a biblically awesome time!
-knife under my bed
-1/4 mile long line to get in track
-maximum capacity by 2PM
-car meet @ La Quinta
-old white people calling cops because of said meet
-running away from cops
-white castle poo
you just had to be there.
I think I’m saddened the most by missing White Castle, haha.
how about the Walrus Codeine?
It was great meeting you guys. I am looking forward to my subscription.
I had to miss it to pick up the E Dirty. i made the right call but DAMN! I wanted to be there. From the pics
I saw looked like some gangster ass rides!
You guys were cool, except that Iranian guy who wouldn’t get up to sell me a subscription. I got a pic of Wooley’s car along with some others I think he might like. Cant wait for the next IA event! Will you guys be at the fall meet?
Best time I’ve had all year. Took over 1100 pictures.
I guess I should’ve added something that I think.
I think it was amazing, but the ONLY gripe I had was that there was a row of cars, and then there would be a 95 Dodge truck, parked in the middle of the row of cars, and then a 91 Chevy Cavalier. Seriously? The gravel should be reserved for cars like that, and the pavement should be where participating imports are.
Definitely the most fun I have had at an event in a long time. Big props to the IA guys for putting on a dope show and thanks to everyone who supported S3!
Corey, I am fairly certain the domestics are supposed to be separated out. I know I parked my rental in the back just for that reason. I think the crowd was just overwhelming and it was hard to make sure that everything was 100% organized.
The event was great. It is what the East Coast needs, we are earning our recrespect at Import Alliance. More than that, it is what the automotive scene needs. Its great to see so many people come from so far away and just be so proud and happy to be there.
Big thanks to especially to Don Napier, but also to Amir, and Omari, Dee, everyone else with Import Alliance that helped out that I don’t know.
Wow im still f-ed up from this weekend. My favorite was meeting the people that I have talked to online for so long and nevermeeting them in person. WHite castle was good…. but WOW you should have seen what it did to me. The hotel was deff. the most fun I have had in a while
I’m alive and its over. It was good times, and great meeting all of the people that help make this event what it is…..the people. Thanks to S3 for all the support you guys have given. Already planning for next year………….stay tuned.
Yeah the domestics were SUPPOSED to be separated out, but I was the only one directing traffic in the back parking lot on Saturday. So there came a point where I just couldn’t keep up with the volume of cars that came in. I personally think that next year we should just make all domestics park outside, whether we are full or not.
7 hour drive one-way

Ur sessier Yousef…..Whatever that means. Hey you need to call me at work 14 times a day.
It just doesn’t feel right w/o that!
We came from NV (red transporter) and it was the first time that we have ever attended an IA event and for sure it won’t be the last. The sponsors of this event bent over backwards to accommodate our needs and a special thanks to them. The crowd was very well behaved (at the event anyway not sure what they did after hours ) and everyone had a chance to experience the Redline Time Attack event, which from our perspective was a real positive.
I was shocked at the price of your subscription and am still waiting for a follow up email saying that there had been a mistake it is really $XXX.XX 😉 I also want to say that I am impressed with the quality and content of your magazine and I wish you continued success with S3
We are just sorry that our SSE car broke, as we know that we could have added to the enjoyment of all.
But we will be there next year for sure and eagerly await the date for next year. Also because there aren’t any In Out burgers, next time I will do the White Castle instead.
CU next year.
^dude the red transporter was gorgeous. props to you good sir.
Stephen, those pics are awesome. Can we get some? 😉
wooley wants to get some alright….
