The Chronicles Vlog #8 and Blox Evolution 2015 Coverage…

I have all kinds of stuff for you guys to look at today. Like, on some “I don’t know if I have time to look through all of this during my lunchbreak” type of content, haha. Below is the newest Vlog, which is just a single episode, and after that I have attached some photos that I captured at the 2015 Blox Evolution event. Just want to thank Dave and Nick from Blox for taking care of me and getting me what I needed to get into the event that day without waiting in that crazy line. I didn’t shoot as much as I normally did because I was concentrating more on the video-side with Der. There is still a pretty solid group of photos below but they are mainly the cars that really caught my eye and as such, I wanted to show you guys. The video is a good one and a bit longer than the usual but it is rather enjoyable I think. Check it out…

The Chronicles Vlog #8 is a single episode covering a 4-pack of events we attended in a short span of 4 weeks. It is a bit longer compared to our usual Vlogs but this contains snippets of behind-the-scenes footage from the Eibach Honda Meet, Wekfest Los Angeles, Blox Evolution, and the Norm Reeves Honda Show. Originally I had planned to separate the video into two but I felt like it would have been easier to just keep it as a whole. This way, you get a similar feeling as we felt cramming all the events into such a short time span. It is great that we have so many events out here but remember that it is work for us as well. Add to that the traveling and going back and forth from Southern to Northern California.

All the events were really good and could have easily each had their own individual videos but I’d rather offer you a behind-the-scenes look as to what happens and all the randomness that occurs with our friends and acquaintances. Enjoy.

*I am not a videographer and this wasn’t meant to be a visual masterpiece of any sort. I am merely capturing bits and pieces of my life for you guys to see.

Props to Son Nguyen for actually putting in effort into building one of Honda’s most unpopular Civic-chassis’ of all-time. EM2 Civics are like the bastard child of Honda and you so rarely see anyone really create a nice one. His coupe immediately caught my eye because it featured a nice collection of parts and under the hood was a K24 swap. Love how the Regamaster EVO wheels sit on there and how everything just flows very well together. I can’t even think of the last time I saw an EM2 that was really worthy of a mention. Nice job.. Now, if I can find someone that cares about the ES1 that much. Oh, you don’t know what an ES1 is? Well, don’t worry, I’ll sit here and wait while you Google it…haha….

This Civic hatchback had a BackYard Special front bumper and 16-inch Regamaster EVOs. The engine bay was mighty clean and was not tucked at all. It even retained the original air box…

Every now and then, you come upon a gem that you just don’t see that often. This isn’t my first time encountering this Civic but I always stop to take a close look at it. The engine bay is well-kept and features a custom turbo set-up, and the exterior is showcased with a Sergeant front bumper and BYS lip combo. Overall, it is a good, well-rounded build that will last the test of time because there’s nothing overly dramatic about it or flooded with trendy modifications…

Turbocharged Midori Green Civic hatchback with an Air Walker front bumper, J’s Racing front wide fenders, and 16-inch Regas…

IMG_8844-Edit

As you can see, this particular grouping of Hondas were all about Desmond Regamaster wheels. This Integra was also on 16-inch EVOs and wore an EDM Integra front face…

  1. Lol, I was just looking at an EM2 in traffic the other day, asking myself why people don’t modify those. They’re great-looking cars front to back, and I’m loving the enhancements on this one. Respect to the owner.
