Where the f*ck is my update??!…

Damn, sorry guys, haven’t been around much these days and I’m sure you are all wondering where the updates have gone. Well the reason I’ve been quiet the last couple days is because of the fact that I’m trying to finish up this Super Street feature. I wanted to knock it out so that I could focus all my time on getting ready for The Chronicles 2-Year Anniversary meet. I can’t believe it’s almost time already. I’m really happy with how the feature came out and I can honestly say that, in terms of photography work, it might be my best work yet. I’m learning day by day and it helps that I had an awesome car to shoot in Ka Wong’s AE86 Corolla. Of course I can’t show you the pics right now but I’m sure many of you remember seeing pictures of it from Nisei Showoff and JCCS. It’s the orange 86 with the TE37Vs and the S2000 F20C swap. The car is amazing. Very simple, with subtle touches, and all the right parts. The color combo cames out great in pictures so it definitely made my job easier. I’ve just been going through the pictures and making sure everything looks good as well as writing the story for it. The guy who owns the car is a pretty cool dude. Very helpful when I was shooting and one of those guys who are like polite to the point where sometimes I don’t know what to say to him because he just has a huge smile on his face, haha. Great car, cool owner, interesting story to go with it as well so make sure to check that out when the story finally hits print. I’ll be sure to let you guys know when it hits newstands…

Anyways, yes the meet is coming up and the registration details as well as the sticker will be mailed out to you most likely by tomorrow. I’ve been super busy over here but trust me, you guys will all get your stuff in time. If by chance it happens to be late, I can also check you guys in at the show and just give you guys the stuff there. I doubt it will happen though because spots are selling quickly and I should have plenty of time to get those to you. If you guys haven’t purchased a spot yet, I highly recommend you guys do that now. I’m gonna have some surprises for you guys at the meet and the people who have purchased VIP parking up front will have some extra goodies to take with you. It’s Halloween time afterall and I think May is putting together some cool stuff for you guys. Thanks to her for all her help of course and I couldn’t do this whole thing without her. Even though I’m sure when it comes to the day of the show it’ll get kind of hectic and we’re gonna yell at eachother, it’s all good…haha. I’m just trying to make this whole meet as stress free as possible. That’s why it really doesn’t matter to me if this meet gets super huge or it stays relatively small. I just want to show the fans of The Chronicles and the friends and family that have supported this site for the last two years the ample amount of appreciation that they deserve. If you guys want to get your spots before they sell out, make sure to get them from The Chronicles Storefront.

On another note, this is pretty interesting. Totally non-Honda related but hey, I always tend to hop the boundaries of car makes. If anything it’s related to Hondas because this Supra makes about the same power as a modded GSR, haha… You guys remember this car right?….I just posted it a couple days before…

The hood was popped and I didn’t even notice that the Supra was N/A and on individual throttle bodies. Guess I should have looked closer at it. Not a bad looking car at all and it’s actually pretty menacing. The craziest part about it is that this car makes only 177RWHP!! Not 1,077 like some Supras can, one-hundred and seventy-seven! Yes, it’s a N/A 2JZ-GE engine that apparently was the Supra that had the lowest horsepower output ever. The owner apparently built the car just to be unique and it definitely is, making those kind of horsepower numbers. It’s a cool build though, you gotta respect the owner for trying something different but damn, imagine going on a Supra cruise where everyone is flying and you’re the last guy at the end struggling to catch up….haha. Shit, my Accord almost made this much power I think. Props for being different though. Check out the dyno video at the bottom…

Okay, back to work….PEACE.
