The Chronicles© – No Equal Since 2008 | www.stickydiljoe.com

There Is No Rival, Because There Is No Equal.

Got something cool for you guys to check out today. I’ve known Tony from It’sJDMYo!! for almost a good decade now and since he’s started up his own site with Billy Shea, he’s managed to get in contact with a lot of different people and aftermarket parts manufacturers. It may seem like he only talks and deals with aspiring import models, but the dude is one of the hardest working people I know. He always goes above and beyond and really often times extends himself a little too much for people. That’s just the type of guy he is. Luckily he has an asshole friend in me who always tells him to not let people take advantage of his kindness. He’s a good dude so I look out for him and he does the same for me. Anyways, he’s recently developed a pretty good relationship with Shin from Airrunner. Airrunner, as you all know, is one of the more notable air suspension companies in our industry and have been so for the last couple years. Shin needed some pictures taken of the 5Axis GS460 that he’s been working on and Tony hit me up to see if I was down to shoot it. I had some extra time on my hands and the GS was sitting at 5Axis, which was a shop that I always wanted to see for myself. He just needed some shots for promo purposes as well as to document the work he had done on the car so it was a win-win situation for Shin, Tony, and I. Shin gets some semi-decent pictures of the car, Tony gets to post something other than ass and titties, and I get the opportunity to check out 5Axis and this GS460. It also happens to be one of the cars that I have had my eye on for quite some time now and I honestly had no idea Shin was even working on it. The last time I saw pictures of it the car was sitting on coilovers. Shin also wanted to show off this new iPad application that allowed the air suspension to be controlled wirelessly through the iPad. That shit is way beyond anything I’ll ever have but it’s cool to see people progressively coming up with new ways to change-up something as timeless as a simple air suspension set-up.

Alright, enough talking from me, if you guys want more history on the car itself and what Shin has been doing to it, make sure to check out “It’sJDMYo!!!” for more. It’s a collaborative effort between him and I but I have a couple different shots that were taken with a different angle/lens that I wanted to keep for The Chronicles. Other than that, the shots are basically the same, except I have all the higher resolution pictures available to you guys. I was pretty satisfied with the pictures considering the limited space that was allotted to me. Overall, I’m happy with it and I think Shin and Tony are pretty happy with the final result as well. The pics are actually processed for the largest size so obviously those would be the best ones to look at, especially if you have a screen that can handle it. Enjoy…

    The papaya accents are so on point! Great color contrast. I also though this car was a chopped coupe conversion 1st time I saw it. Good stuff

    yo sticky love ur blog, but ive got some problem. about month ago this site started to lag as fvck when i scroll it (win7/xp – on mozilla firefox), is there any solution to this phenomenon? greetings

    1. stickydiljoe says:

      It was probably due to all the pics that were loading. I corrected it by limiting the site to two posts per page.
