JTuned x Falken Tire Super Meet…

I really didn’t hear much about the JTuned meet last Saturday until maybe a couple days before. It wasn’t really advertised much and I didn’t hear any real hype about it so I was undecided on whether or not I wanted to drive all the way out to Rancho Cucuamonga. My homie Billy with the Laguna Seca Blue IS hit me up about going and I hadn’t seen his ass in awhile so I decided to go out and shoot the shit. I don’t know what it is about the 10 freeway but it always seems to suck major dick and I always have to spend an added 20-30 minutes in traffic anytime I have to use the 10 to get anywhere….

When I arrived at the huge parking lot inside UTI, half the lot was still empty and I mostly saw vendors with cars scattered throughout. The first car I saw rolling through was Carlos’ 4-door Civic….

Right across from the Eibach tent was the Torco booth. Big Mike’s Prelude was posted up next to Bisi’s race car. The Dickies resevoir covers are a nice touch I must admit haha…

After talking to Big Mike for like 2 hours and 30 minutes, I walked over to the Auto Fashion booth. Freddie brought out his big ass truck and a couple other cars to support Falken Tire…

Falken was auctioning off all kinds of random shit. It was actually kinda cool….

People were buying old bodykit pieces and hoods for like $10 bucks. From what I saw and heard, people were just buying stuff for the hell of it. They didn’t even own the cars that the aero pieces were made for. Guess it was cool to have as memorabilia or something…

I got to see the 5Zigen Accord Euro-R race car in person for the first time and this thing was crazy….

Norman and the Streetlightz guys were present and brought out a couple of the homies cars to represent. Turns out that Norman and Alexisthemovie had an extra Rota slipstream laying around. If you guys didn’t read the post a couple days back, I was looking for one that I could fuck with and turn into a Rotamaster EMO. Can’t wait to get my hands on it. They said it was all jacked up and shit too….exactly the way I wanted it haha…

This S2000 belongs to Stanley Ku from The Ku Cars. He’s got a pretty cool blog and he’s got a nice fleet of cars too. I think he owns a R34 GTR as well. His blog is one of the ones I check regularly like the JDM EGO blog.

Saw this VIP-styled Fit. Nice stance along with what I think is a Ken Style kit…Would look sick on air but what do I know, I can’t even afford that shit myself…

Really nice NSX…the guy you see with the blurred face is DAVID with a CD Accord. Fool is blatantly trying to get his face on my shit so everytime I see him from now on I’m gonna blur that fool’s face. Now his face looks like a coochie from a japanese porno…just as hairy too…haha…

First time I’ve ever seen this hatch. Not sure what to call the color but it was definitely bright. The inside and cage are all done the same color as well so it definitely stands out from every angle. The K-swap and ITBs aren’t really anything to look past either….

This NSX was hammered. Not like a borderline 21-year-old female at her first frat party but it was sitting nice on some Gram Lights…

Saw this NSX before at the Cars and Coffee NSX day from awhile back. The wheel fitment has me kinda worried. Everytime I see an NSX with big wheels on it the front always looks like it’s rubbing dangerously near the wheel well. Looks really weird cuz the wheel doesn’t even look centered….Guess it’s due to the width and overal sizing of the wheel up front. Guess that’s why they recommend staggered sizing front and rear…

That was about it as far as Hondas go. Overall the event was kinda small but the quality of the cars were pretty decent. I walked around a bit more and glanced at some stuff that Garage Boso was selling and got to see Ross Petty’s drift car in person for the first time. Love that thing. The rasta colors, graphics, etc…

I just hung out with some homies after that. A couple I hadn’t seen in a while so I had alot of catching up to do. It was a chill meet. Would have been better if it wasn’t so damn far but that’s just how it is….

Might as well throw up another non-honda shot…Kinda related I guess, file it under, “cars that are lower than Joey’s”…

I’m out…

      • Yeah I have been a little MIA with school and work, but I’m going to be out full force this summer. The fit is really coming together nicely and quickly. Hopefully more will be done for Eibach

    • No prob man, always read your stuff….Nah we didn’t get a chance to meet. I was running around taking pictures and stuff. Keep up the good work man, love the car(s).

  1. Nice coverage, that green/teal/80’s refrigerator color EG looks sick, got more pics??

    Maybe I should stop pointing out the ride height of your car all the time Joey, looks like it’s got you a little self conscious :S..

  2. “After talking to Big Mike for like 2 hours and 30 minutes”

    Pure comedy. Sometimes he gets all Oxford Dictionary on me and I feel so retarded with my LAUSD Education.
