This medley of trendsetting street cars, highly modified super cars and tuned motorsport cars not only struck curiosity (and education) to the average consumer/attendee, but also the interest of the hobbyists in aftermarket and modified culture. If you're going to do something for the first time you better do it right! And that's what Josh and his team did at the VIAS!
