SpoCom Anaheim 2014 Details:
- SoCal stop of SpoCom tour at Anaheim Convention Center on July 12
- Hundreds of display cars, dozens of vendors and thousands of fans
- Eclectic mix of display vehicles - JDM, VIP, and performance cars
The 2014 SpoCom Tour made its Southern California stop in Anaheim, Calif., on Saturday, July 12, and just like its previous installments the event brought out hundreds of display cars, dozens of vendors and thousands of fans.
The variety at SpoCom Anaheim 2014 seemed to be the biggest draw, with competitors bringing street and show cars of all import makes and models and a few domestic entries thrown in for good measure. VIP, JDM, USDM, and just about every modern vehicle-related acronym made its presence known during the eight-hour event. Unlike many car shows, there wasn't one particular make or model that dominated the venue. Some rows were lined up based on car crews parking together, and others placed a big body Lexus next to a Porsche and a custom van. The mix kept things interesting and I was left guessing as I shuffled from one end of the massive convention center to the other.
In part one of our 2014 SpoCom Anaheim coverage, we take a look at the sedans on display. A mix of performance focused builds and all out show cars populated the floor, and while the thought of building a four-door hasn't always appealed to the masses, in recent years that's changed dramatically. The VIP movement, which coincided with Mitsubishi and Subaru unleashing multiple generations of rally-inspired hell raisers, only helped to foster a new admiration for big cars with lots of egresses, as the builds have become much more common these days.
