Final Formation (2017) car meet by Final Form USA was held on the final day of TX2K17 this year.  I didn’t plan to stop by but it was on the way home and a few of the guys invited me, so I made an appearance with my sunburned face and arms.   If haven’t heard of Final Form USAyou’ll know they’re known for their distribution of CarShopGlow lights, Rize LEDs, RE-Amemiya body parts, and other various Japanese tuning automotive parts.  This year, they plan to organize a few Houston car meets backed by Falken tires.

The Final Formation meet didn’t feel like a normal Houston car meet…  Each of the display cars were staged like they would be in a car exhibition/show which was different.  The other modified vehicles not on display in the main area were parked either in the street or public parking spot on the side.   The meet location was on Sabine St. Bridge at the entrance of Buffalo Bayou Park’s, The Water Works.

I arrived an hour before the meet ended and decided not to use my 35mm lens.  I opted for the 50 1.4 lens…

Found another TE37SL buddy parked in the back… this is Hong‘s G37 Sedan.  A good contrast in blue paint and gold wheels….

The meet wasn’t made public until a few days before…  so many of the spectators who happened to be in the area were random people jogging or going to the park…

One main reason I like going to Houston car meets is to just catch up with friends whom I haven’t seen awhile like James Evins…

I think that’s why most of us come out to car meets… just enjoy car life…

280z final formation houston car meets

This Z might look familiar but it’s not Forsberg’s 280Z… this Moonbeam kit Z belongs to Kevin or @k.bull.2

From what I’ve been told, this was the first kit by Moonbeam before Forsberg’s 280Z… also was painted before Forsberg as well… shrugs.

Another local Z owner known for his low wide stance and was Bruce Laureto’s 280ZX….

Bruce’s Pantera rear deck conversion is a nice touch that most 280ZX owners don’t have…
