I missed last years Blox Open House, so I knew I had to attend Blox Open House 2011. I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect from this event, but I knew it had to be pretty big if I heard promotions for it on our local radio station Wild949. Blox opened their facility to everyone and cars from all makes and models, from daily drivers to Super Street Magazine cover cars. All day the lot seemed to be packed with people and some of the Bay Areas finest food trucks were there to keep everyone fed. Everything seemed to run pretty smooth, no drama, everyone just seemed they were enjoying the event.
Walked around for awhile checked out all of the cars, and talked to all the “usual suspects”. To tell you the truth, I wasn’t planning on spending my whole day there but I did. I always seem to see old friends and end up talking forever…. next thing i know the show was over. Thinking, maybe I should try to keep in touch with people more often.
Anyways,I was really checking out this white CRX in particular powered by H2B (H series with B series Trans), got me thinking maybe I should go in a different direction with my Civic as far as power plant goes. Another car that caught my eye was Ernesto Jr’s Red 5.0 Mustang. I always wanted a Red 5.0 , and growing up, my older cousin had one. It was, and still is one of my dream cars, weird but very true. I guess it brings back memories of when I was a kid being raised with domestic cars, and spending countless weekends at the drag strip with my family.
Thanks to Blox for putting this on, it was pretty generous of you guys.
