86 Day Meet at Modbargains
SoCal Inland Empire 86 and 86day.org partnered up this 86 day to create an event that won’t soon be forgotten. The 86 Day Meet wasn’t just for Scion FR-S owners and Subaru BRZ owners. The gracious hosts of the event, ModBargains.com, made the event open to everyone, allowing for Toyota Corollas, Scions of all shapes and sizes, as well as a few Subarus to join in on the festivities.
Vendors were plentiful, and the usual suspects from Borla, Stay Crushing, and Super Street were there. All the 86 Day attendees were entered into a raffle as well. Lots of goodies were made available as well as a few higher end prizes. Overall, it was a very well rounded event.
Event planners and vendors aside, there were some astonishingly well-built cars at the event. Many of which we couldn’t capture since the event started around sun-down and we only had enough time to run through the first couple rows before sunset.
The first Scion FR-S we spotted was tucked away in the corner. A sleek APR front splitter and Enkei’s really make this a tasteful yet distinguished daily driver.
Not so much a daily driver as much as it is a cop magnet, this FR-S is draped from head to toe in extremely aggressive aero, with a carbon fiber vented hood, flared fenders, and wheels with a mirror finish.
Back to the basics, this Subaru BRZ is another fine example of a street build. Practical in every way other than how low it sits, with a perfect wheel setup.
Black housing headlights and an ominous Toyota emblem help differentiate this owner’s build from the many 86’s in the crowd.
World Rally Blue is an iconic color, and perfectly suited for this STi build. Everything from the fenders down to the wheels honor their manufacturer with the bright pink STi logo.
Black on black on black. We don’t like to use the term “murdered out” because of the negative connotations some people associate with it, so we’ll stop here. Great choice with the SSR’s.
Is there anything inside this engine bay that isn’t custom built? Plexiglass air box, fuse cover, painted housings, vinyls emblazened on top of carbon fiber, and a Cusco strut tower bar. We’d expect nothing less from this particular owner.
Black on black on black again? Absolutely nothing wrong with that, especially with this wheel setup intermingled with the front lip!
Black on silver! This Toyota GT86 sports a unique silver band running down the side of the fenders as well as an agressive front lip.
This one appears to be early in the build process, but the owner clearly is on the right path with the lip and side skirts. Hopefully we’ll see an upgrade in the wheel and tire department next year!
Speaking of wheel and tire upgrades, this minty Subaru BRZ was hiding near the back of the show. Very clean with understated aero upgrades.
Another lurker in the back of the pack. We’ve spotted this 86 many times before with their Borla upgrades and unique blue anodized lug nuts. Hopefully we’ll continue to see this build at future events.
With all of the Toyota GT86’s, Subaru BRZ’s, and Scion FR-S’s we missed out on due to the sun running out on us, we know that next year we’ll have to work twice as hard and three times as fast. Thank you to Modbargains.com for being such gracious hosts, and we look forward to next years festivities!
