Southrnfresh 2017

The sixth iteration of SF's annual celebration

Beyond the drama, the smack talk, the constant berating and braggadocio often poorly disguised as self-loathing, the automotive world's social and web-based community serves multiple positive roles. For some, it's used to find hard-to-source parts and scour the dark crevices of the web in search of those once-in-a-lifetime deals. For others, however, it's a link to any and everywhere beyond their hometown - a peek into other parts of the world to see what's happening, keep tabs on the latest trends and breakthroughs, and generally stay up to date on everything from performance to aesthetics. Perhaps more importantly, it's a tool that can be used to showcase you, your build or your region, something the Southrnfresh blog is all too familiar with.

What started as a simple blog to share some of the builds from the southern part of the U.S. has morphed into a staple for the area that's comprised of car features, event coverage, merchandise, and general content that's continued to evolve, year over year. Created and overseen by Joseph Dale and backed by a dedicated group of photographers and videographers, the site's become a destination for many to gobble up the latest happenings in the South and, at times, beyond.

For the past six years, the Southrnfresh crew has thrown a gathering, sometimes in conjunction with another event, though this year it was SF on a solo mission to host the event from the Coweta Country Fairgrounds in Newman, Ga. The invite went out and made the social rounds, and on October 14th a large variety of cars, import to domestic, mild to wild, street to track, showed up to enjoy the day.

  |   Southrnfresh 2017 Exomotive Kit Car
  |   Southrnfresh 2017 LS3 Engin
  |   Southrnfresh 2017 Exomotive Kit Cars

This Exomotive kit car weighs virtually nothing, which makes that monster LS3 perched up front that much more menacing. It looks like a wild ride and one that we wouldn't turn down if given the opportunity to scoot around in.

  |   Southrnfresh 2017 Mazda Rx7

We're suckers for a well-maintained FD, especially one with factory sized fenders and flanks and a clean set of Enkei RS05RR rollers.

  |   Southrnfresh 2017 Supra Corvette

Diversity is key at Southrnfresh and this duo, which couldn't be further apart on the automotive spectrum, sit nicely together.

  |   Southrnfresh 2017 Civic Type R

While people argue online about how they would buy this car or that, rather than spending 35k-plus on a Honda, this particular CTR is too busy racking up track miles.

  |   Southrnfresh 2017 Nissan Skylines

Okay, okay, you've seen more than enough images of Skylines in stock or modified condition, but even you can't argue with the fact that these cars all but demand a second look, every single time.

  |   Southrnfresh 2017 Datsun 1600

This old-school Datsun pickup with custom fender treatment boasts a unique Great Wave of Kanagawa image on the hood.

  |   Southrnfresh 2017 Mercedes Wagon

If this is considered soccer mom status, get us a pair of Uggs and a pumpkin spice latte 'cause we're in!

  |   Southrnfresh 2017 Audi Wagon

Not just an import or domestic affair, euro builds, like this grey Audi wagon, made their way to the gathering.

  |   Southrnfresh 2017 Honda Fit
  |   Southrnfresh 2017 Subaru Sti Honda Civic
  |   Southrnfresh 2017 350Z
  |   Southrnfresh 2017 Rocket Bunny Frs
