Sad news. I went for the first time in 01 and entered in 02. Took home 2nd in my class.

I remember hearing how epic the Nopi cruises were. Nobody seems to be able to motivate show goers on those interstate cruises anymore.

So sad an end of a era for sure I had so many good memories from street racing in Houston on rankin road to Nopi in Atlanta man I’m getting old and miss what the import scene used to be.

Even a guy like me, who's not into the import scene, knows who NOPI is, errr, was…..

Back in the days, I remember opening up Super Street magazine and 10 pages of NOPI in the center section! Always got a kick out of looking for parts that would fit my 87 Mr2. Sad to hear that they're gone….

I actually worked for Nopi in Forest Park. Mark Meyers rest his soul, did everything to try and revive the car show circuit. After his passing, it was the final blow for Nopi. I will forever miss the fun times i had setting up and judging all the custom rides. There will never be another show circuit like it!!

They have died for me twice now. 1st was thinking they had already died, 2nd was finding out they're alive only to die again.

I wasn't old enough at its height, but I remember the ads in magazines and the photos from the shows. I'd love to see a pic dump of the shows from the late 90s and early 00s. I got my brief taste in it near the end of high school, but I always love looking at how modding has changed over time.

NOPI 2004 was awesome! First time I seen an Supra with nitrous on a dyno. And that NC blue integra with M3 headlights and tail lights by Elite Customs. Awesome show!
