I'm in Longmont. Off to the side of I25 in btw Denver and Ft Collins. I'm right next to Boulder. I would say the car scene here is pretty decent. It's not bad. The owner of DSMTuners lives in Highlands Ranch which is right southwest of Denver. There is a well known Evo tuner here in Longmont, SubaPerformance is in Boulder along with about 5 other Subaru shops. Theres a race car shop across from Tobz tuning, not sure what the hell they do but they have a lot of cool cars sitting around.
In Longmont there are a lot of decent civics that are actually done right... Besides the ebay coil overs they actually put JDM lookin rims on them a front lip and the usual fart can. They really do look pretty tasteful. They're not the super riced out, body kitted, baby blue cracked front bumper, gold lower control armed /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/rofl.gif, hatchback mounted wing car you're used to seeing. Oh and chicks drive them... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/uhh.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/worthy.gif
Lots and lots and lots of WRX/STI's... Really... They're everywhere. Trust me I drive one. SRT4's, very few TSI/AWD's on the road here in Lmont. I do see them in Denver, Theres a sick ass black supra that rolls around here as well. Theres also a guy with a Celica GT4 but he wont sell and treats the car like crap. Theres a Chevy Astro with a 383 stroker, couple big diesels.
Overall its pretty well rounded. I've been drinking... I think i'll stop for now.
