GT-R EXHIBITION // SACRACEWAY

GT-R EXHIBITION // SACRACEWAY

Damn it’s hot today! 102 degrees in Sacramento, CA. There are a lot of crazy cars out here! Some are even powered by rockets!

exhibition-1-12

Sacramento Raceway reached out to the NorCal GT-R group and invited us to their exhibition. There were a combination of drag cars and bikes so it seemed a little out of place to have this stock-looking vehicle pull up to the pits.

You’d be surprised how many questions I…

WEKFEST VI // ZILKNATION x FFTEC

WEKFEST VI // ZILKNATION x FFTEC

August 10th, 2014 was an interesting day as it was the first car show I’ve attended as a vendor. My friends at FFTEC were kind enough to let me use half of their table to sell my FR35H GEAR and LED bulbs.

wekfest-1-2I spent the previous week preparing for the show making custom pricing and LED displays. Unfortunately the day of the show I was told that we wouldn’t have power so I could not show off the…

BOARDWALK NISSAN // 2014 GT-R MEET

It’s that time of year again for the largest GT-R meet in the Bay Area! This year our hosts were Jason Manown and his crew from Boardwalk Nissan in Redwood City.

We’ve got live music, catered food, a dining area, and lots of parking for our Godzillas. I guess the only things missing were some of the girls from yesterday’s BLOX event. Boo-hoo!

About 75 GT-R’s showed up throughout the day. I…

4TH OF JULY WEEKEND // OFF THE GRID

4TH OF JULY WEEKEND // OFF THE GRID

After all the fireworks shenanigans that do nothing but scare dogs, a few Bay Area GT-R guys decided to wake up at the crack of dawn and drive out to Alameda. We were all duped as one of us had a very big surprise…

alameda-1-2Yup! Gidi Chamdi does it again. This ’13 Lamborghini Superleggera (UGR Twin Turbo Kit) is hot off the delivery truck from Texas. Yah no worries. Let’s forget about the two fellow…

STORM SHADOW // KATSU’S R35 GT-R

STORM SHADOW // KATSU’S R35 GT-R

I met Katsu last October at one of our private drag race events. Since then, he’s been addicted to speed. After pulling a respectable time for a stock car, he decided to quickly upgrade to a SBD700 package earlier this year. He ran a 10.53 @ 133.71MPH which is pretty damn quick for just a few bolt-ons and E85.

katsu-1His contentment didn’t last long. He decided that he wanted a 9-second street car. The…

INSPIRATION POINT // FAREWELL PARE

INSPIRATION POINT // FAREWELL PARE

pare

p’are appellation for a male friend, derived from kumpare or kumpadre, the feminine form is mare from ku-mare; sometimes used to address a man whose name one does not know

Great, now that you know what that means, let’s talk about the man of the hour, Michael Manalo. I don’t really remember how I met Michael (I think I was being stalked on Facebook) but he seemed nice enough. In fact,…

FFTEC MEET // 10 YEAR ANNIVESARY

FFTEC // 10 YEAR ANNIVESARY

The NorCal GT-R group has been cordially invited to FFTEC’s 10 year anniversary meet. It’s always fun when you “caravan” together to a big event like the one today. And of course there’s that one Japanese dude who is always fashionably late.

fftec-1-10Four of us travel across the very windy San Mateo bridge on our way to Hayward. Cruising at a steady 65 MPH we arrive on schedule before all the other people…

SHIFT-S3CTOR // EASTER WEEKEND

It’s been a while since my last event. So much downtime due to the rain. I really hate the Spring! Nothing but allergies! This weekend we carpooled down to SHIFT-S3CTOR in Coolinga, CA. If you smell cow shit, you’re in the right spot.

shift-1-19There’s Marissa Hiroko. I think I spent more time taking photos of her than the cars. I’m not sure how these girls stand out here for hours at a time. I was dying…

UNICORN // GIDI’S R35 GT-R

When I first met Gidi I had to do two of the following things: Look downward because he was a foot shorter than me, then do a double take because he resembles Vin Diesel. Once you get past that, you realize “Hey, this guy is an adrenaline junkie”! It’s almost like Tom Cruise in Top Gun telling himself: “I feel the need, the need for speed”!
