A day at Fast Autoworks…

So Mikey and I headed down to Fast Autoworks the other day to just hang out and shoot the shit with Tuan and the rest of the crew. I got there at about 2:35 or so and we took off to go eat at Island’s (again). I even managed to order the exact same thing as Sunday and it was just as good. I know Bisi is sponsored by Outback Steakhouse and sometimes I wonder how great the world would be if Island’s sponsored us. I mean, it doesn’t even have to be an elaborate sponsorship. I always order the exact same Rincon burger (medium-well) so it’s not like I’m asking for too much. Haha. In exchange I’d just rock an Island’s sticker or something on my car. Shit, I’m doing free advertising right now and I’m sure some of you will go; “Damn, that shit sounds good right now” and then go order some food from them and make them some money. Oh, we can all dream can’t we?….

After we finished our burgers, we headed back to the shop. It was kind of a slow day compared to the usual so we just hung out and watched JP work on his own Integra for a little bit…

They were also working on installing HBK Jon’s new mil-spec harness…

While that was going on, Mikey was busy hanging out with Tuan, the owner…

This is Tuan’s Civic coupe. So clean and flawless….I love this thing. Just so simple and to the point….

When you open up the hood it’s a totally different car…

After about an hour or so, Arnel decided to come by and hang out. He just recently got his fenders fixed and repainted and the rear quarter panel looks perfect now…

Sid came by after work to come kick it also and we all just hung out. Then Mikey and I decided to go to some random liquor store in the area to go grab some drinks since it was hot as shit…

I was kinda iffy on why the “euro bliss” drink looked like a bottle of jizz…

…and why they still carried All-Sport, seeing as how this shit went out of business like 10 years ago or something. I don’t even think the current generation of kids today knows what this brand is….Even the logo is straight outta the 90s. I also saw they were selling baseball caps…but not just any baseball caps, they had “Sudden Death” baseball caps. Yeah, “Sudden Death” the Jean Claude Van Damme movie from 1995. This store was still carrying the official merchandise from the movie haha…I walked in there and it was like I walked back in time…

After I returned to 2009, I just walked around and took random shots of the shop…

Overall it was a good day. Thanks to Tuan and the rest of the guys for having me and being real chill guys. I love the coupe and Jon’s hatch is gonna look better than ever once the harness is completlely installed and the car is up and running….

For those of you that liked those like black & white artsy pics and shit, here’s a link to bigger versions of them. Feel free to distribute them and advertise for me haha…Or use them for subpar quality desktop wallpapers haha….

…And a bigger version of this image….Just click on them and it’ll take you to the regular size…

  3. You should had bought some All Sport last time I saw that shit was 1996 when I was in the 5th grade. Oh and they were playing Sudden Death this afternoon on Encore LOL…….

  4. I guess All Sport is back found this article from March 2009………

    In the ’90s, PepsiCo hatched its own sports drink called All Sport. For whatever reason, it was lightly carbonated (not sure why athletes would want that), and pretty much never gained any significant market share from Gatorade fans (because everyone wanted to be like Mike). After Coke balked at buying Quaker Oats, which it was eyeing mostly for its crown jewel Gatorade, Pepsi swooped in and snapped it up for a cool $13.4 billion in 2000. Ironically, there were concerns at the FTC about PepsiCo owning Gatorade and the underwhelming All Sport. To appease those concerns, Pepsi sold All Sport to the little-known Monarch Beverages. The brand’s presence continued to dwindle to near non-existence until, lo and behold, the Dr Pepper Snapple Group relaunched it this week. In what is at least its fourth try, the brand is now being touted as the first, all-natural zero-calorie sports drink. It uses the new, hip sweetener rebiana. While an all-natural, no-calorie sports drink is a great idea, and it’s nice to see Dr Pepper Snapple pioneering something for the first time in forever, why bring back All Sport? The brand has zero equity with consumers and has never posted anything close to strong sales. If anything, the people who did try it in its carbonated version, or saw it in its horribly repackaged form under Monarch, probably think it sucks.
