What is Import Xpression?
Attend an Import Xpression event and you'll witness cars compete in up to 39 different classes, ranging from "Best 2-door Mild" to "Best 4-door Wild." Entertainment includes a DJ battle, bikini expo, and stageshow.

Show highlights
Large numbers of cars gave visitors lots to take in at the show. Carbon fiber inserts and widebody kits continue to be popular amongst enthusiasts. We also noticed several rides that had been outfitted with Lamborghini-style vertical doors. One particularly memorable car featured a baby seat complete with racing harnesses. Strapped next the child's seat was a mini nitrous bottle, and a sign on the floor which read: "Baby and his bottle." Check out Import Xpression to see more highlights from this and other Import Xpression shows.
