Jose Mejia’s FK8 Civic Type R From Club Racer Reunion Weekend…

Jose Mejia’s FK8 Civic Type R From Club Racer Reunion Weekend…

Originally I had planned to just include this in the Club Racer Reunion Weekend coverage being that it was all shot on the same day at the same time but the more I thought about it, the more I felt that these photos should get their own separate post. I know many of you who have followed me through the years may be a bit surprised to see Jose’s FK8 CTR on my site because of his association, but I already let bygones be bygones so long ago that its hardly even an issue. For those who know what I’m talking about—it’s old news. I’m just here to enjoy cars. Even if there were an issue, it wouldn’t really be Jose’s fault because he wasn’t necessarily involved in any perceived ‘drama’ that had happened in the past…

Unfeatured: Brian McAvoy’s Honda Civic…

Unfeatured: Brian McAvoy’s Honda Civic…

I suppose I should start off this latest entry to my “Unfeatured” series by letting you all know that Brian McAvoy’s Civic is probably only one of two cars that I have ever shot on two separate occasions that never made it to print like I had planned. Like the other features, how they ended-up not being in a magazine was not any fault of their own—it was all on me. This was a particular strange time for me as I found myself at a transitional stage of my life and ‘career’, I guess you can say, and a lot of the work that I had done which I had planned to submit just never came to be. Looking back at these photos now, I feel a bit of regret. These photos in particular came out pretty good, in my own opinion, and I was quite satisified with what I was able to churn-out on the color-toning aspect of my post-processing…

Dave’s Civic On A Fresh Set of “Club Edition” Volk TE37SL Wheels…

Dave’s Civic On A Fresh Set of “Club Edition” Volk TE37SL Wheels…

A while back, Duane from RCompound USA and Kristian from Battlecraft decided to link-up to do a limited run of Volk TE37SL wheels for fun. With the original TE37 wheel mold destroyed and off the market, the boys thought it’d be cool to take a more modern TE37SL wheel and do them in a classic colorway. The sizing on these wheels would be limited specifically to one size; a 15×8-inch wheel with a +35mm offset in a 4×100 bolt pattern. They are geared towards the Honda/Acura market of the ’90s because that’s a majority of their demographic and they wanted to ensure that they give some love to the Civic and Integra enthusiasts who opted to not go the popular 5-lug route…

Ken Suen & His K20 Turbo Civic “Street Car” in Photos…

Ken Suen & His K20 Turbo Civic “Street Car” in Photos…

I’m always a little surprised when something we are able to put together here at the shop gets a little bit more attention than normal. When Ken Suen came by with his car I just thought it’d be interesting to hear him and Yuta chat. Both of these guys are so different in the way they think and do things that it would either become a super interesting conversation or they would just start fighting each other, lol. Whatever was going to happen that afternoon, I was confident it would be something my audience would enjoy seeing. Hell, even I was entertained to the point where I didn’t even have to say much and they just carried the Vlog themselves. Ken’s “street car” turbocharged Civic is something that any Honda enthusiast would enjoy but then you pour some personality onto it with some loud conversation and it just meshes together into great automotive comment. I think this is the type of content you need right now where it just feels like you’re hanging out with other car people and listening to your peers talk about something that you all enjoy as a whole…
