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

There Is No Rival, Because There Is No Equal.

If you’re viewing this blog then you probably know me already or know someone that does know me. For those who don’t know, I am Joey Lee. I am a freelance writer that has and currently is writing for Honda Tuning, Super Street, and Import Tuner magazine. I have done a few cover features as well as other smaller features for websites such as NWP4LIFE.com. I have been apart of the import tuning community since the late ’90s and have had the opportunity to meet many, many great people within the community. I have built 2 cars in the past and am also currently building my third. I have had the pleasure of having my previous build, a 1992 Honda Accord, featured on the cover of the March 2006 issue of Honda Tuning magazine as well as two other internet features: NWP4LIFE.com and Intunedonline.com. I have also been featured on the Forza 2 Motorsport website for work that I have created within the game.

I created this blog with intentions to keep it solely based on the Honda and Acura platforms. I have spent a bit of time looking through automotive blogs and they rarely focus soley on Hondas. Even though I don’t own one anymore I still have a great love of the brand and doing freelance work for Honda Tuning has given me the opportunity to see alot of great builds. My goal here is to share things that I have seen on my journey and offer you an alternative to automotive forums, which are sometimes filled with too much drama and hate. Think of this has a Honda/Acura forum….just without all the BS…. Through my journeys in the industry these past couple years, I have been exposed to automotive vehicles of all types so every now and then, I will throw in the occasional non-Honda content as a bonus.

Within a year’s time, this site has really taken off and along with the help of my friends, The Chronicles has now become a household name within the Honda/Acura community. In fact, it has reached beyond the borders of just the Honda community and many non-Honda owners tune in to see the mayhem that occurs here. This site started out the first month with 40-60 visitors daily to now surpassing over 3.5 million viewers all-time going into our 4th.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope you enjoy your visit.

  22. Mikey says:

    I’ve always enjoyed visiting this site, one of my favorites for sure! Will definetly be getting a sticker soon to REP this!

  23. *E* says:

    I used to own a “JDM” inspired DA integra that I built in 1997(whatever that shit means nowadays) I was inspired by FFSquad etc… Got into the scene, got tired of the drama and lack of “mature acting enthusiast” if they were mature they were dick’s. I sold it, even so annoyed I got rid of my prized authentic mugen sideskirts that were found in Canada (wtf). Yes they were real, label in the gelcoat :-). I’ve since moved on bought a MKIV jetta 1.8t blah blah blah, now converting it to diesel (I know). I’m still connected to Hondas as I have, excuse me my WIFE has a Honda Element. I’ve seen the one posted here and in seeing all the hondas and how far they’ve come I’m again inspired. Thanks for keeping the drama out and allowing someone like myself to realize how much I’ve missed these Honda’s and vehicle’s in general.

    1. stickydiljoe says:

      Thanks for the kind words.

  24. kidgsr says:

    Sick blog…first time I actually sit down and read whats on here. Nice, all it needs is some girls…lol.

  25. bushtucker says:

    yeah this blog is ill man.
    love what you have done to it.
    this blog is truely inspiring in many ways for me to keep on getting my eh finished!

    props to you and who ever else has helped with this!

  26. Hey bro I LOVE your site dude! I really like your DGAF attitude you have on the cars and you actually shoot interesting shit. Big fan on how you are mainly a Honda guy, but you occasionally feed us different shit.

    Oh and to be honest, I read your site mainly for your smart-ass comments you have to say about the cars. They are seriously HILARIOUS and make me laugh. I catch my self screen-shotting them and posting them on various sites. CHEERS!

  27. Ben-jammin' says:

    Stickydildoe, (Joey Lee)

    Got my stickers awhile ago and the packaging was kinda funny… Anyway, have really enjoyed reading and now financially supporting a freelancer! Feels good to help the needy! lol
    Anyway, your blog is a blast and there isn’t anything else out there that compares to it!!
    ROCK ON

    Heard about this at IA2011 this past weekend… Now it is bookmarked!
    I have been collecting Super Street magazine since i saw it on the shelf at Books-A-Million back in my college days. I have the first issue and have not let my subscription expire. Glad to see your involvement in the scene has led you to this and now this is blowing up! All i heard were good things about Stickydiljoe and that I have to check it out….. Glad you made your way out to IA this year and hopefully it will not be your last.

  45. Jeff Ward says:

    how do you sign up for your website

  46. Brian Ford says:

    I’ve noticed since you’ve changed themes that you’ve had togo with a small (default) header image. If you wanted the css code to change it this will work

    #header-image {
    background: url(“?”) no-repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
    height: ?px;
    }

    #header-image img {
    display: none;
    }

  47. Craig Green says:

    Hi Joey.
    I found the chronicles as a result of Performance VW mag here in the UK featuring the site. I’m new to Hondas & your blog is feeding me with so much inspiration right now. Our Honda scene is nothing compared to what you have there in the US.

    I’m really hyped about reading the Year 3 report coming up.

    Keep at it. Craig

  48. Brian Turner says:

    Hi, My name is Brian and I’d like to speak with you about your blog, please email me at your earliest convenience.

  49. Dillon says:

    Hey Joe, i love your site, visit everyday, so i decided to help support you and i bought a chronicles sticker during the ciber monday sale… and it still hasn’t arrived. I finalized payment and everything.. and im starting to wonder if im ever gonna recieve my sticker. thanks

  50. Low n Slow says:

    I’d like info on upcoming events/meets. I copped my 1st Honda/1st wagon 1/12/12. Funny how I was never into Honda’s or tuners and that matter lol. But tuner’s are growing on this Mini Trucker/Oldies guy lol.

  51. Dannyb2134 says:

    Been in the scene for a while and I no longer use Honda forums for the reasons you listed above, I simply don’t care for the trash talking and enthusiasts putting down others. This site allows me to stay up to date on everything I love about the scene without the bs drama! Keep it going! I check the site for updates daily for it is my gateway to the world I have come to love!
    Danny from Houston Texas.

    1. low rider says:

      Well said about the Honda forums.

  52. Samir says:

    Ran into the site after one of my users posted links to your Spring 2012 IA coverage on my local site. Matt’s car was featured several times in the writeup and it’s really cool to see you highlighting someone I know from our local scene. :) It was great to see Russ’s NSX making the cut as well. He was going to come down here for a Fast Five premiere since the Corvette from the movie was made by a friend of mine. Too bad tornados killed that entire event…:(

  53. 爆心地 says:

    I love this site. I got a guy in TX El Paso running a sick EG6 and it is the only on of its kind!

  54. christine says:

    I still don’t understand the name STICKYDIL??

  55. Leo says:

    Hey Joe, new fan here. I’ve tuned in to your blogs just to check out some good looking hondas. I don’t know nothing about swaps and stuff like that, would love to own an eg civic and learn to build. I hope I can learn from your blogs.

  56. KanielEJ1 says:

    Found this website completely by accident…. AWESOME stuff man.. keep it up..

  57. alexgreer13 says:

    I noticed that you have one of the most popular blogs on wordpress.com I was wondering if you want to take it to the next level?

  58. Jeron says:

    Hi im from the Caribean , I’ve been a big Honda fan over 10 years now and i really love your site. I’m interested in getting a 7 point safety 21 or cussco roll cage for my 1996 honda civic sedan and would like some info on where i could source one. Jeron from Antigua

  59. jmcn R says:

    I have been following this site for awhile now, and glad to say the quality posts..although Honda oriented are still among the best in the automotive blogosphere. LOL the address is weird though. Also….bang on to what you have in the description and other persons posts about the forums. The big blogs and even tube comment sections all suffer the same issues. The Nisei event and its coverage are superb.

    Props the keeping this going and growing, I know you don’t have the staff of other sites. Please do the import and enthusiast blog scene a favour and keep it up!

  60. Eric (Lightsleeper on NWP4Life, HondaTech and JDMU) says:

    Just found this blog and I love it! I am currently rekindling my love for Honda’s again; I am also a long-time Honda enthusiast since the mid-nineties hoping to grab some inspiration for a new build at some point in the near future. Will be going back through the archives for sure.

  61. In the 2nd paragraph, right before “just without all the BS,” you wrote “has” instead of “as”. Regardless of the matter, blogs and snaps are too legit.

  62. Jack Hsueh says:

    Sorry~ I was order some stuff (The Chronicles Version 5 T-Shirts and some sticker) since June/05, but still don’t get it yet!!!
    the Invoice ID: BOKF-623170 , and it’s from Taiwan!! THX

      1. Jack Hsueh says:

        Ha~ just got it today, THX!!!!

  63. chico says:

    hey bud, im the owener of the old emotions blue rhd ek9, if you would like a bit more info on the background of it shoot me an email, i think you will love to hear about it. great site keep up the good work!!

  64. Ty says:

    I am going to visit Cali one day In hopes of getting to meet you and shake your hand, your pictures are breathtaking, you are phenomenal with that camera. You can make a simple car look clean AF. Keep it up bro!

  65. Oscar "FatmanEH9" Laureano says:

    1. stickydiljoe says:

      Awesome man. Thanks for the kind words. I guess I’ll see you at the meet!

  66. Jose Valencia says:

    Bro I love your blog mad props I would like to put stickers on my ek :)

  67. itrbroham says:

    Hands down one of the best, if not THE BEST, import car/enthusiast/scene sites on the web! I’ve been visiting the site since early ’09 and back then I’ll admit I didn’t like most of the cars photographed. But since then due to Joey Lee’s insight and imagery, I have nothing but admiration and respect for all those that have been “Chronicled”. One day last year while visiting Ballade Sports, David, Ryan, and Ryan Der walked in and I was like “WHOA…..that’s them! LOL! It was almost like I knew them after subscribing to the Chronicles each day. I spoke to David and he was just as cool as portrayed on the site.

    Keep up the good work!

    1. stickydiljoe says:

      Thanks for the kind words, I appreciate it!

  68. Great blog! Did you take the pictures yourself? Btw I am a Honda man myself. Proud owner of a 2004 Honda Pilot (Not super cool I know), but Honda All the way. Keep it up!

  69. David says:

    i dont really remember how i found out about this blog, but i know i have seen your photos for a long time and it’s great to finally see all your work. i was wondering how did you get into your position as a freelance writer for honda tuning, super street and import tuner? i have been trying to find my niche in this auto world for such a long time. would like if you could help me out with anything. I do write and am an amateur photographer. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks! and again…great work!

  70. CD5JSid says:

    Damn Joey, after all this HT cancelation and reading about you being sober, I gotta do something! I can’t have you going sober on us. I can’t support you if your products are all sold out. Keep up the great work. I’ll be checking in for a quality read and to purchase some stickers and maybe a t-shirt, if you got fat boy sizes 3xtall. Thanks for all you do in this community!!!!!

  71. John says:
