car show

Long Day it Was,

woke up 4 in the morning, left the house around 4:30 to be at the office before 5 (which he came late) and drove down to City of Industry for Autocon. my car was to be boothed for BRIDE and WEDS.

4時に起きて、5時集合に間に合わすために4時半には家出て(約一名遅刻しましたが)City of Industryまでレッツらゴー。しんちゃん号はBRIDEとWEDSのブースでの展示。

we we’re waiting at the wrong entrance lol hahha no wonder nobody else was there in the lot.


aaand here we are, in the parking structure underneath.


isnt my car shiny? cleaned it for once 🙂

クルマぴきあってね?洗ったぜ 🙂

thought i was going to get pulled over for that huge LSD letter lol once Non was distributing the OS products, the packages were stuck on customs because of that LSD writing lol

thats it for this year… lol didnt have enough time to take a look around. i had to go west LA for the sale event at QIO. will be updating those pics later on, probably today. but yea, the venue was pretty much packed with of course the Mitsubishi vehicles. Evo 7-9, X, Eclipse, Galant, Pajero, etc etc. wish i could have stayed longer… but to be honest, its the same thing over and over. yea there will be new people registering to place their car with pride. but thats about it. what do they do? chill at the parking lot, chatting with the buddies, go grab some food and get ready for the raffle for freebies. been tired of the car shows lately. whats the fun?

I was at HIN,

now is some more snap shots of the people.


here’s the link to snapshots of the cars.


I was at Hot Import Nights,

March 14th was Hot Import Nights. which was held at Angel’s Stadium in Anaheim California. dont know why they’d call HIN “LA” with the venue in “Anaheim” but who cares. if  Joser didnt tell me it was gonna be at Angel’s Stadium, i wouldve went to the LA convention center. thanks, Joser… lol hahah

3月の14日はHot Import Nightでした。今回はちょっと変わって、場所はアナハイムにあるエンジェルすスタジアム。なんでHIN「LA」って言ってたのかわかんないけどね「アナハイム」なのに。まぁ、どうでもイイんだけどさ。友達のホゼぃがエンジェルススタジアムだよ今回って言われてなかったら、毎年のようにLAのコンベンションセンターに行ってるとこだったよ。アリガトウ、ホゼィ…笑

i was walking around with my new Sigma 50mm i just bought. forgot my speedlite though.. hahha oh well. its all good. left the venue while it was bright since i had a meeting to catch on that night for Tokyo Night. following are some random snap shots of the cars.


gonna upload some of the oobies next time.


its almost 1:30am…

BOMEX full kit, VEILSIDE (wtf is Veilside doing with BOMEX? lol) type2 GT Wing, some used random ENKEI rims, shop’s original exhaust, TEIN springs, CUSCO bushings, black lights and HID… hahaha yea i was only in high school that time and had no money at all. lot of people new about this car in my high school. people wanted for a ride and etc. hahaha. the venue was at NISSEI WEEK back in 2002. wow 6 years ago. btw, this was the first and last show with this car since i totaled it. gotta look for those pics… i was with Team Insight to display the car at NISSEI WEEK. met a lot of new people and still keep in touch with them. well, just wanted to share the pics of my old buddy 🙂

ハードの中を色々と物色してたら下の写真みたぃなのがイッパイ出てきたよ。高校ん時の愛車、アキュラ(アメリカではDC2はホンダではなく、アキュラブランドでした)インテグラ。モデルはLS、VTECの無いモデルですね。BOMEXのフルエアロにVEILSIDE(ナゼにこのコンビだったかは聞かないで(笑)のバージョン2GTウィング、なんか中古でもらったENKEIの古いモデルにお店のオリジナルマフラー、テインのバネにクスコのブッシュ類とブラックライトにHID…笑。お金無かったんですよ当時は高校生だったもんで。結構有名だったんだよコレ。皆乗せて乗せてってw。写真のイベントはNISSEI WEEKです。2002年と、なんと6年も前。ちなみに、インテグラで展示会はこれで最初で最後になりました。廃車になっちゃったんで。そん時の写真も探さないと…。こん時はチーム・インサイトと一緒でした。色々な人達と出会い、今でも何人かは頻繁に連絡を取っています。まぁ、せっかくなんでブログにアップしようかと思って、当時の愛車を 🙂
