oh man, there was no screening process…
there was alot of absolute garbage there… Chris was schooling people with SR and general 240sx Tech… 90% of middle-americans really have zero-clue.
what that whole event really drove home is how advanced our scene is here on SON.
everyone here seems to complain about all the drama and how no one knows anything, but when you are around people who REALLY dont know anything you begin to realise how it isnt that no one in our community doesnt know anything it is simply that we take all the basics for granted whereas in many other communities they dont even know where to start.
people were under our NYspeed pavillion wondering how we got such a sweet spot… comments over heard were:
“how did these guys get here? no one has any stereo equipment”
“all these cars look stock”
that should give you an idea of what the demographic is for the US tuner scene.
mind you, there were some extremely sharp cars there.
Miatas were very well represented with at least 10 examples of Miatas that i would be happy to own and drive and brag about.
But as mentioned, the 240sx scene was significantly lacking.
