Stuff you should really look at…

Outside of all the events that have gone on lately, there’s actually quite a bit of stuff you guys should check out online that you might be interested in. Some of it you may not have heard or seen yet and there’s also a chance you’ve seen and heard all of it already, regardless, here we go…

It’s actually been out for a couple weeks now but if you haven’t had a chance to check it out, please go pick up the newest issue of Super Street magazine…

…Not only does it have a cover feature about an RX-7 from Japan owned by a surgeon…

..it also has this S2000 from Team Emotion that I had the pleasure of writing up the story for. It’s Spoon’d out S2K from the east that’s definitely worth checking out…

This issue is particularly special to me because I had the opportunity to shoot this Honda F20C-powered AE86 Corolla. I did the story and photos for it and in my honest opinion, I think it represents my best photo-work yet. I started out almost a year ago not knowing shit about taking pictures and I think I’ve learned a lot during that time and the shots of the Corolla in SS really show how much I have improved. Even if you don’t agree with me, the car is totally badass and worth looking at anyway. One of the reasons why the photos came out so good is because the car was incredibly easy to shoot. I couldn’t be happier with it and when the next issue comes out, I’ll probably put up the shots that weren’t used in the mag. There’s a bunch of pics leftover that weren’t run in the magazine and The Chronicles will definitely be the only place where you will get the chance to see those shots…

Here are some quick shots of PG+K Jay’s S2000 during a track day out at Road Atlanta. I love the way the car looks and to see it out on the track is truly a treat. It’s good to see one of the 2009/2010 Top Ten Hondas still doing big things and all in one piece. People are so quick to part-out/sell/build another car that you never get to see the owners use the cars to their full capabilities…

Fucking love it!…shout out to Jay, can’t wait to chill at Wek’Fest 2011 this coming year!! Look how focused he is in the last shot, haha. Dude almost stared a hole through his windshield…

Speaking of being on the track, the 5Zigen FD2 Civic Type R recently broke the FWD lap record at the Tsukuba Circuit during the recent RevSpeed Super Battle. The K20A turbocharged FD2 on nitrous ran a best time of 58.222 at Tsukuba and I’ve heard that this Civic makes around 500hp. It’s a pretty big deal for 5Zigen, especially on this particular track. I wanna build one of these Civics so bad…oh man, you guys have no idea….

Here’s a video of the record-setting lap at Tsukuba. Remember to turn up the volume so you can hear this thing scream, it sounds fucking nasty!….I love it…

If you want to see more pics of it and read more about the 5Zigen FD2 Civic, check the link here

Before I go, I think you guys should also check out the JDMYard meet coverage held down in Australia. They certainly know how to build cars down there…

Great looking Mugen Integra on aggressive Volk CE28 wheels…The meet marked the debut of this project for them and they’re not nearly done with it yet so it’s worth keeping an eye on…

This EG hatch is one of the sickest builds to come from JDMYard. Everything about it is on point, fromt he J’s lip to the K-swap. If it were over here stateside it would give a couple guys a run for their money…I love the way the 949 wheels fit as well. Nothing to retarded crazy though, it’s just a clean build with a nice swap and all the right parts…

Photo credit goes to the dudes that shot the pics and you can see the rest of them on the NWP4Life forums here….

That’s all for today, I hope this rain goes away soon before the holidays come this weekend…I’m out for now, Peace!

  1. Man, I give you mad props, I started following this site about 1 yr ago and I cannot express how much I love and get well informed with your updates. Eveything from your detailed outings with your homies (bbq’s, lunch, etc.) to the super gnarly events you cover like SEMA. This is truely my favorite site to visit EVERYDAY besides team-integra.net. Keep up the good work man! Props from Pomona my friend!

  2. if thats the PG+K S2K im thinking about i was annoyed the entire weekend of import alliance having to listen to it being air jacked up and down. really nice car but really annoying to be near at an event for long durations.

    The latest Super Street issue was great. i havent read SS in years, but the past couple issues have been good.
