Coverage – Part Two – ImportFace Off Bakersfield

Words and Photos - Mike Tolliver


Ok , you’ve seen part one about how we got to IFO at Bakersfield. Now its time to focus on some amazing cars we found. Now the clubs rolled hard to IFO. NVUS lead by Jimmy Gomez came in with like 125 cars this year. Thats an amazing number. This was the first time I got a chance to sit and talk with him about his organization.

We took notice of Zach Persons 350Z running Accuair and stunning set of three piecers directly in front of the NVUS tent.

Josephs Reyes Honda Civic Si made us stop for minute.
