Hey everybody, I would like to invite you now to check out the new project that I mentioned a few weeks back, titled “The Epilogues”. It is a step in a completely different direction that what would be considered by today’s standards, “the norm”, in that I really want people to start reading again and to refocus their minds. Everything is so fast-paced these days and nobody seems to care about anything or want to stick around to stare at something for more than a minute. I’d like to curve that mentality before things get too far beyond repair. Our car community is struggling right now, it really is. Everyone is just merely building for instant gratitude, the thirst for recognition, and the want to be “famous”. We’ve forgotten about things that once really mattered. The first is passion and the other is knowledge. People are just doing things now because they think it will get them somewhere fast, ignoring the entire notion of actually caring about what they’re doing. They lack the passion and conviction to really stick around with a hobby that is important to many of us car guys who have been around long before the social media wave took over. Knowledge is lacking in that people don’t discuss history anymore or how things came about. Like, how did your present car community arrive to this place where it is now? Who helped to lay the groundwork for you to build and have a place where there are others who care about cars as much as you do? Where do you find that information? It’s practically none-existent. I started this project to encourage people to read again and to form some sense of understanding of the important people that have been a part of it for a long time now. There’s quite a bit of reading and it can be a little a test of your patience, but I would love if you at least gave it a shot.
I started this project with two very important people; Freddie Fernandez from Autofashion USA and Jonathan Wong formerly the Head Editor of Super Street magazine. These two individuals were huge influences of mine and also two very good friends of mine. I sat down with them and had them tell me a lot more about their lives and we discuss their impact on the import scene. Two very influential people to the community who never really had an open forum to talk about their lives and their thoughts on the scene as a whole. It is a fun, interesting, read. I promise that you will take something away from reading about their respective journeys.
