Event>>m&m Donut Meet In Anaheim

Earlier this month we put out a question on the Speedhunters Facebook asking about car meets happening in Southern California. One meet which a number of people said would be worth a look was the bi-weekly event at M&M Donuts in Anaheim. On Sunday evening I packed up the camera and drove over to Anaheim to check it out.

I had no idea what to expect really, and I arrived in the shopping center at Euclid and Katella to find the parking lot full of cars and people. It seems that word of this gathering has spread quite quickly.

All sorts of cars had come out for the night, with vast majority of them being Japanese imports.

As you might expect, the Honda guys were out in full force. Some of the cars were of "questionable" quality, while others were quite nice.

The whole area around the meet is filled with restaurants so there's plenty of opportunity to grab a bite to eat and hang out for a while.

The most popular stop by far was the donut shop. Word had it that the wait for some of M&M's signature blueberry donuts was an hour or more…

Throughout the evening, the cars kept and coming and going. With Facebook, Twitter, and all the blogs out there – word of a meet like this spreads fast.

This four-door Civic in full JDM theme -was another one of the many Hondas that was out there.

A fixed up Subaru Forester is something you don't see all too often around in the US. Looks like a nice STI clone!

This FD3S had a pretty tough street-ready look to it. What do you think about that camo'd front lip?

A group of Honda FIt owners took over one corner of the parking lot. I know first hand how fun of these cars can be.

Tough looking Evolution sporting the wingless look. You can probably see by now the kind of variety that could be found at this meet.

I'm not sure if any Chevy Cobalts have been ever been seen on Speedhunters before, but I'd say this one is worthy.

This stanced EK Civic was getting a lot of looks out there.

An R32 Skyline like this might not get much attention at a meet in Japan, Australia, or Europe – but here in California they still generate a huge buzz.

This Five Axis-tuned Prius was a bit different. Slowly but surely more tuned hybrids are starting to pop up in Socal. Obviously these are done for looks over performance, but it's still cool to see.

A couple of Evos, an S13, some Hondas and even some VIP cars can be seen here.

The JDM front end swap for the DC2 Integra is so popular here that sometimes I forget what the stock USDM face looks like.

One more for the Evo crowd.

For the most part, everyone at the meet kept things civil and mature. Still, there are always a few people that use these meets and as an excuse to rev their engines, peel out, and do other childish things that give car enthusiasts a bad name.

It would be sad to see the actions of a few ruin things for everyone, and we can only hope that a couple immature people don't ruin what is otherwise a fun, relaxed environment for people to enjoy their hobby.

It doesn't matter where you go, you just can't get away from Commodores at every meet, even in the US!

Please more info on the Colbalt SS?

and for that matter more info on well sorted CBSS around the nation.

its the fastest fwd car around the ring and chop full of technology, and doesnt get the respect it deserves. its producs like this that need the support....

14

no matter where u r there r always ppl revin rice, peelin out and leaving shows to go race even at school held events

15

The FIVE:AD Prius lip kit was fine tuned with the help of Swift Engineering's CFD team.

It generates a little bit down force @ highway speed (to lessens the stock car's lift) without changing the Cd much.

You gained a lot of performance from that? Nope. Just a little bit more planned on the freeway.

16

sooo why is a cobalt on here and why does it deserve to be?

17

Nice pictures of the Evos



Keep up the good work

18

I spy a Guam Flag on the Camo Lip FD3S.

19

-that supra on equips looks awesome!!

-dont like the camo lip n the fc though

-and your right Mike, people need to take it easy and relax a bit on car meets...

20

camo lip on that fd looks sweet. nice small touch of something different than the rest of the car

21

ya what kstyle said ^_^

22

@sigh......!

I think that's a GTO (Monaro), the Commodore is called the G8 over here.They were the least popular of the modern muscle cars and I wish they were a bit more common. :/

23

The Prius is my buddy Rodney's! Good to see the Prius getting some attention haha

24

Yay my blue Honda Fit! If you'd like to see how fun Fits really are...

25

WHAAATTT i didnt know about this meet. Going to check it out looks good.

26

is that r32 legal in california. U.S. Customs anyone? Where is jdmego's r34 gtr?

27

It's unfortunate Meets Month is in March because it eliminates many parts of the country that would otherwise be great spotlights for our diverse car culture.

28

Hey that s13 is mine =)

29

DROOL over that first red supra it has to be one of the sexiest i've seen <3 Equips

30

I've seen that sick RX7 on the forums... looking amazing like always though.

31

are you calling the IS questionable quality?

32

I missed out on this Sunday.. but I will be at the next one.. and this Friday's Boba, Crepes & Car Meet! Hopefully Speedhunters will be there as well ;).... I put the link up as well.. Should be a good turn out, hopefully not as much immature people... Just a fun chill meet.. and have some boba and crepes.. Meet some new people.. :)

34

my Honda Fit baby blueee made it through!!

35

looks like a very mixed bag in attendance, it looks like a "show" rather than a "meet" by the amount of cars present! i would love to know whats lurking under the bonnet of the Supra in the foreground of the first shot?.. we get the Subaru Forrester in the UK, funnily enough its generally driven by semi-retired, balding gents who needs something for the dogs & a lugger to take Fern tree cuttings to the local tip on a Sunday morning! someone needs to 'sort' one of those cars out, its an un-tapped resource!! the Chevy Cobalt looks like its got potential, the Honda Fit are called Jazz out here in the UK, again nobody touchs these cars??!!

36

I agree with Llam, although the current content is fantastic, meets month should not be in March. Here in the upper midwest most of us still have our cars covered up hibernating, it is still too cold and, in some spots, the roads are way too unforgiving right now. Once it really warms up, though, we are all out in full force and the car quality (and quantity) is amazing.

37

dang i attended this meet a couple weeks back , it was well worth my friends and i lagging our drive home to norcal , to bad this feature is not at the end of the month considering my friends and i bringing down more of our cars from norcal.

39

Feature on the red supra on the opening shot pleeeeaz

40

I dont like any of these photos, this is poor speed hunters

41

seems like a pretty kwl meet! oh and the camo lip on the FD3S -1

42

GOd that prius is sexy!

43

That Forester looks great.

44

I've got a Cobalt to shoot for you guys in the future!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'll be submitting it within the months, its an awesome build!!

45

Love the camo lip on the FD! I think your Cobalt looks sweet William. If you got haters, then your doing something right!

46

Has the GTO in the opening shot had a respray? I don't recall them being available in that colour?

47

OHHH that SUPRA is hot shit !! M'mmmmm

48

@DRAGSLICKS

Yes, you are right, the current Commodore is the G8 in the US. However, the last generation Commodore was the GTO in the US, and the Monaro in Europe. I had to clarify that. Alos, yes, the G8 did deserve more attention in the US, esp. the GXP variant.

49

i like hondas i from tecate baja california mexico

50

That's my forester!!! yes!!!!

51

very nice meet!!

52

the rx7 with the camo lip is bad pretty aggressive looking for a street car

53

NOT THAT COOL BUT I STILL LOVE YOU GUYS

54

Supra in the first shot belongs to my best friend. Look him up on SupraForums, username LRG SOUP.

55

Man, I wish my EK Sedan looked that nice!

56

hey speedhunters thank you for taking a photo of my car! ( white s13 silvia) really made my day!

57

"I'm not sure if any Chevy Cobalts have been ever been seen on Speedhunters before, but I'd say this one is worthy."



FALSE

58

white civic hatch is from LB....built with stolen parts

59

JohnP is a girl scout

60

That camo Fd is pimp.....!! Love the way it looks and stance is killer.

Stance on the blue Fc is choice.... Talk about aggressive fitment. These Mazda Boys

Must be doing something right, cause they got a few haters. Haha

61

@DRAGSLICKS......I figured it would be a Monaro(GTO) as I don't think the US got the 4 door variants in the earlier models. However it doesn't really matter how you slice it, they are all Commodores really, 2 or 4 door.

62

Fd camo lip is tits!!!!!!!!! And the fc had killer offset!



Haters gonna hate. Guess those Mazda boys are doing something right......!!!

63

I want the wheels on that R32 for mine! Can someone please find out his/her name, address, schedule, and if they're allergic to anything? Er .... a friend wants to know.

64

I love the Supra in the first shot.

65

as long your a car guy,no matter what ride u got,YOURE DAMN INN.No Descrimination at a car meet.nah mean.nyahahaha..LMAO xD

66

thats my FD...hate it or love it

67

Cobalts aren't worthy? Hmmmm, considering that they are FASTER and HANDLE BETTER than ANY other FWD production car ever made, I'd say otherwise. Look into the facts and you will see for yourself.



I say it's about time people starting doing them up correctly, and that they got some much needed attention.

68

when is the next car meet??????

69

no ae86 here i have a one gts

70

This meet should be squashed! It takes just one fool (out of a few) to mess this up....I'm done.
