This is reality. For the last few years, I’ve seen and experienced so much with my small group of friends. I’ve held my glass up for many toasts, met a lot of great people, and engulfed myself in the car community worldwide to absorb as much as my soul can handle.
I want to make sure that I recollect all the cool cars that I’ve seen in the span of 365 days but found myself swapping clips of footage out instead for all the great humans I’ve encountered this year. I appreciate those who are out there purely in pursuit of all things car-related but in the years I’ve been doing this, I discovered that the sum of those experiences are far more rewarding. At the core of it, those that make up the sum are the people. Today and for the rest of the coming year, I celebrate us, them, and those who continue to support this little project called The Chronicles.
This is our story, our reality. These moments are as real as it gets, nothing is staged, nothing is imaginary.
Thank you for watching and being a witness to our lives.
All the footage you see was filmed by myself and my friends throughout 2017. The bulk of it was filmed with just a GoPro Hero 4 Silver, with a little bit of help here and there with an old Canon 5DMKII dSLR.

Congratulations on another stellar year of growth, Joey! I’ve been following The Chronicles since I think 2011, and your shared experiences and content have been invaluable for me, living in the relatively quiet midwest. Happy New Year, and best of luck to you in 2018!
