NWP4Life Meet and Greet 2008…

What can I say? I love these kind of meets. Nothing like sleeping in on a Sunday, waking up, getting in the car, and taking a nice cruise down to a laid-back spot. No worries about parking situations or anything of the sort. The meet was set-up specifically to give the new users over at NWP4LIFE.com a chance to meet some of the more seasoned members. With the recent growth of the forum and the fact that we hadn’t made the trek down to Northwood in awhile, it was the perfect time to get together. Being Turkey day weekend didn’t hurt either because it gave people a chance to come out who would have otherwise had to work normally…

…Got there around 11:30 or so and ran into the OG’s. It was a meet and greet for new and old members but only the oldies showed up. Of course Big Mike was there, here he is in mid-tickle fight with Jeremy…

…Some shots of NWP regulars as well as Honda Tuning Magazine feature cars. Big Mike’s Prelude and Ojay Bayang’s Honda Element…

…The pizza there is good. Really good. I’ve never had pizza with so much topping on it. We ordered a pepperoni/sausage/extra cheese pizza and that shit was so good that we totally forgot to even take a picture of it. I also saw nwp member EF9status eating a meatball sub too and that looked really good too. So good that I watched him eat it in a totally creepy way…yeah I said it, wanna fight about it?…

…By the time we finished eating people finally began to show up. Probably better off cuz we didn’t really have to wait for the food to come. The first guys we ran into were the homies Arnel and Sid from Phaze2…

I know I know…”What the fuck is up with the hood”, you ask. Rat rod style hoods are starting to make it’s way over to the Honda community and they are really hit and miss. Some people love them, some people absolutely hate them. Either way, to each their own and people do what they want to their own cars. My personal opinion? I really don’t mind it so much. Arnel is the nicest guy in the world and I’ve got his back no matter what he chooses to do. I honestly loved the car the way it was before because it was so clean all around….

Decided to go check out EF9status’s (status’?) EF. This thing is really underrated. It’s a very well put together build and everything flows. I loved it when it was on the Work RSZ-R’s. And of course Big Mitch has to be in the picture. The guy loves the camera, like a stalker. He’s like in every picture….seriously…keep track…

…Of course, greasy-ass (but delicious) pizza wasn’t enough so we all headed over to Yogurtland next door and got some soft serve. Socal Honda celebrities eating yogurt together…how precious…..This Yogurtland was huge by the way. I don’t really know why you need such a huge location for yogurt, but some people like their cucumbers pickled, wait what?

…It got pretty crowded by the time we were finished. There was a steady flow of people showing up by 1pm or so….

…Even this cool guy decided to show up. Big Mitch was so excited to see Mike G that he wanted to show us how he was gonna remove Mike’s wedding ring with his mouth. What a sick bastard.

Donut and Chase from Chasebays rolled up together. There’s a pic of Chase holding a pizza and an engine wiring harness below. Why? I have no idea.

…Caught a glimpse of Chad from Team Ziggy’s Mugen-equipped NSX. It’s an immaculate condition. How often do you get to see NSX-spec Mugen M7’s? Shit is badass….

David and his girl with his Accord and her EM1. Work Rozest’s wheels are nice. So nice in fact, that Ojay decided to take the most terribly angled picture ever. EVER.

…Quick snap of “dc5 jared’s” S2000. Looking real good with the Mugen hardtop and Amuse front bumper…

Insert “I don’t like ____ normall but I like your’s” comment here. Don’t you hate reading that shit? Oh I don’t like Accords normally but I like your’s….Hey, fuck you. I hate it when people always post that shit in forums. Anyways, I like this Accord. I really don’t like Accords but I like this one. Haha. I used to own an Accord and I liked it. I don’t like other Accords but I liked mine….Thumbs up for Cali Love.

Overall it was a good meet. Sorry if your car wasn’t pictured. We didn’t bring the SLR that we usually use and all we had was a handheld from Wal-Mart or something. Considering the fact, the pics came out pretty good. I was actually just gonna draw the cars that I saw from memory….

…If I didn’t even say anything, you probably wouldn’t have even noticed….
