A Look Back: First Class Fitment 2012: Official Photo Coverage

For the third year in a row, our annual First Class Fitment meet at Princeton Airport has been a successful bookend to the East Coast show circuit. The event is organized as an invitational showcase for the best examples of the fitment scene on this side of the Mississippi, and the key draw for this show has always been a concentrated diversity that simply doesn’t exist in other events. First Class Fitment is a manifestation of Canibeat’s commitment to bringing our readers the largest variety of cars in our community crammed into a single day of food, music, friends, and feature-worthy cars

While the show is obviously geared more for our readers, the various tasks needed to make FCF happen allow for the largest gathering of Canibeat staff and friends for the year.  So in the background of the cars and music, there is a homecoming happening that brings together a group of people that spend the rest of the year e-mailing, texting, and calling to make the site tick, rarely having any face-to-face contact.  And that is what’s amazing about our modern era, that a group of rag-tag writers, photographers, and all round nice guys and girls can come together in synergy with various perspectives and opinions of this scene.  This collection of images, therefore, hopefully will give you a glimpse of our own personal favorite cars and moments of the day.

Chris Sempek, a photographer from Richmond, VA contends, “. Since it first started in 2010 I have been snapping away and trying out new tricks to bring a different style of coverage to the meet. . . and I feel this year in 2012 I have reached the images I truly wanted. First Class Fitment is my favorite meet in the country and I will be back each year to capture the cars and enjoy the meet with my friends.”

Another view of Miro’s S2000. This thing was awarded best fitment last year at First Class Fitment 2011. We really love the new finish on the SSRs and the new vinyl decals this year.
