Limited Edition Osaka Prints Are Now Available!!…

I’ve been wanting to do some prints for a while now and finally pulled the trigger and two of my favorites photos and cars from my recent journeys to Japan. The first one is of Tsuyohi from NO GOOD RACING’s two Civics during heavy rain on the Osaka Kanjo and the second, one of the best of all time, the Car Mark Across EK9 parked in front of a Family Mart on a night after Joe took @ryan.der on a touge run in the mountains. Both are 24×36-inches (2×3 ft) in size, printed on high-quality durable 100lb. gloss cover paper in a matte finish. Limited to only 200 each, all will be individually numbered and labeled like my previous prints, and can be signed upon request. Super happy how these came out and even happier that these will be hanging in some of your garages or homes. These are now available over at our official storefront, NORIVALNOEQUAL.COM!!…

Noel’s Varis FR-S Turbo & We Finally Work On My IS300…CHRNCLS Vlog 2020 #16

Man, there have been a lot of red cars popping-up at the shop lately… On this episode, we finally pull my collection of Japanese Altezza parts that I’ve been collecting over the years out of storage to install on my IS300 Sportcross. A Zero Auto Factory prototype vented hood came over stateside recently so we had to make sure it fit on U.S.-model IS300s because of the 2JZ-GE engine we have here. A few days after that, my good friend Noel Barnum came by to hang and chat so we do a deep dive into his incredibly well-built Varis widebody FR-S which is equipped with a GReddy turbo kit.

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…

This Almost Feels Normal??…CHRNCLS Vlog 2020 #14

Oh boy, things sure have gotten a little strange over the past few months with all this pandemic madness and self-quarantining. Things are starting to look-up however and people are starting to re-emerge from their hiding places with safety measures in place to make life a little better. Work hasn’t stopped for us the last …

Unfeatured: The Exceed Japan Integra Type R…

Those of you who have followed The Chronicles for the last few years will probably be pretty familiar with this 1996 Honda Integra Type R. I’ve posted photos of it here and there over time, never the complete set, which I’ll explain why today. It was a build that I was around quite often during …

Unfeatured: William Potts’ Honda Integra Type R…

Consider this a lesson in being just a little tad-bit over ambitious. When I decided to start doing this limited-series of works that I’d previously never shown to the world, I knew that I’d have to face some of the mistakes I’d made in the past as a photographer and freelance journalist. For any photographer, …

Unfeatured: Tomas Burns’ Honda Civic…

I imagine now would be as good a time as ever to unload some photos that I shot a while back that never fully saw the light of day in print or on a website anywhere. These photos were most likely shot with the intention to eventually end-up in print in a magazine like Super …

Option Tuning Car Battle Spec-R for PS1 on Twitch!

After playing some Option Tuning Car Battle 2 on PS1, I was left disappointed with the gameplay and overall driving physics of the game so I wanted to see if the third and final game of the series had any improvements. “Spec-R”, which completes the trilogy, is actually a pretty fantastic game and though both …
