There Is No Rival, Because There Is No Equal.

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these… For those that don’t know, I’ve collected some images over the years from various car features and events from the past which I’ve kept for my own private archives. I decided to upload them up on the site periodically to pay homage to some of these builds as well as offer a glimpse into the past for the current generation of car enthusiasts to study and enjoy. There have been times when I think that photos like these were lacking because either the images weren’t very common to the public back then or were uploaded to sites but the servers had since gone dead, making them no longer available for viewing… Continue Reading

Things have been a bit slow on the content-side but I’ve been staying pretty busy with things here at HQ. Gotta plan my trip to Japan once again to attend the Wekfest event in Nagoya as well as getting orders out for those who have ordered from the storefront. I recently completed some work for the annual Super Street Honda Issue so keep an eye out for that in a couple of months. I wish I could tell you I was doing more work consistently for the mag but I don’t really know what’s going on there. Maybe they have new talent on board to help the mag get better or found people who are cheaper to use. Either way, the Honda Issue will be great because I really did but a lot of work and thought into the stories and photos for the issue. It just might be one of the best issues of the year…

In any case, I’ve been keeping busy over here trying to plan new projects and create new content in other ways to keep this whole “thing” going. I don’t think I was built to work a regular 9-5 so I’ll just ride this whole thing out as long as I can. I’ll be honest with you guys, there are many times when I often do enjoy the struggle because it helps to feed my creativity but damn, when things are tough, they are TOUGH…haha. As long as I got food on the table and I can sleep well I really can’t complain. Just want all of you out there to know that I always appreciate the continued support throughout the years. I am now in my 7th year of The Chronicles and it is pretty remarkable to see that the site and name in general is still growing. I thought I peaked after year 3 honestly, but it just keeps growing. All I wanted to do in the beginning was give everyone a glimpse into our lifestyle. Whether people enjoyed or cared wasn’t really a concern of mine, but I’m happy to have developed a following. In early January I thought to myself that maybe this year was going to be the last year of The Chronicles. Maybe I should take a break and focus on other aspects of my life and come back to it later, or just shut it all down altogether. I know now that I am in a enviable position that shouldn’t be taken for granted so it would be a shame for me to stop now. Being in Japan really reinvigorated my spirit and with all the events coming up, I’m really looking forward to getting out there and seeing new things. I think 2015 will be a really great year. There will always be tough times but as long as the good outweighs the bad, there won’t be any complaints on my end…

Again, thank you for the support. I’ll see everyone soon as there are a ton of events coming up. I’m trying to travel more to see new shit so who knows, maybe I’ll pop up in the Pacific Northwest or the East Coast or something, who knows…

Been pretty busy this week with some print work for the Super Street Honda Issue and things just wrapped up recently. I’m taking some time to relax and regroup but I did re-open the store for all of you who were looking for merchandise. Brand new 2015 T-Shirts should be dropping soon, I just need to get the new layout to my guy and we should have those available for you. In the meantime, check out the new look of the store and pick up some goods. I appreciate the support as always. Have a great day and stay tuned for further updates…
