Extreme Autofest hit the SF Bay Area this past Saturday, August 13th 2011. The show was smaller than expected but was good since this was their 1st main show in the Bay Area in quite a few years. In the past years they were usually teamed up the Auto Show in SF. It's good to see them back in the Bay Area but next time hold it at a different venue.
The San Mateo Event Center (formerly Expo Center) is very strict with everything. I remember back in the late 90's to early 2000's that no place was this strict. Cars that were in the show were searched inside and out. They checked all your bags and belongings and did a whole sweep of your car with security wands looking for bombs and explosives. They even had someone with a mirror stick checking under the car. Also the other thing was before the event started all car show participants including people setting up etc... were told to get out of the building and re-enter to get searched and get pat down by security people. Really? I mean they could've just checked everyone out while everyone had to exit their cars to get searched.
Extreme Autofest had a variety of import tuner cars to domestic cars and even some classic cars as well as trucks. There were tons of models to keep most of the people occupied. There were some MMA fights from a local school and an Anime/Cosplay contest. There was also a B-Boy contest and fashion show. A couple of performers were Sharon Maceren, Jasmine Trius and Lil Jordan.
