Another wonderful day in Southern California and the stage was set for AutoCon 2011, what better way to wrap the end of the year with Autocon 2011. This year the event was held at the location of the first Gymkhana viral video. This place was huge! Food trucks galore, hot females and hot rides no one does it better than Autocon Events!

Being that I am a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X owner it was hard for me to agree to attend this year’s Subiefest. A good friend of mine had recently been hired by COBB Tuning so he convinced me to come and check out the dark side.
We arrived early and I was amazed to see a HUGE line waiting to get in to the event! COBB Tuning was a vendor at the event and had a nice setup to promote and sell COBB Tuning merch and aftermarket parts. They even participated in a raffle to give away a brand new Subie downpipe and exhaust system.
My friend was able to get me a media jacket and it was on like donkey kong, setup shop at the Auto X event and snapped so many pics my camera was on fire!
Hot Day, Hot Car and Hot Track it doesn’t get any better than this!
