It features ZTY Flagship cars in the prime of the import racing scene in Northern California, during the "Savage Society" excess movement within Z.Team Yossi's ranks, and includes a behind-the-scenes outtake at the conclusion of the film in which Kota and Andy dive headfirst into a cake eating contest. Andy produced "Imported" for his digital media course at Cal State Hayward (now called Cal State University East Bay).

"BURN OUT" is an action sequence made possible by Blake Roy and his Zeal Acura Integra GSR. Watch him literally smoke off thousands of miles from his 18" high performance tires while fellow members hold the fort down. This was filmed in Walnut Creek, CA on a rainy day, shortly after Import Showoff in Santa Clara, CA. Many of our cars were in detailed show trim and the rain wasn't a bother at all. I love it!
