STREET Dreams

11 10 2012

Japan is awesome in so many ways.  The people are great, the food is amazing, and best of all…you can basically drive anything on the street…including FULL RACE cars.  My friend and I were just talking a few days ago about how it would be awesome to drive a full race prep 997 GT3 RSR on the street.  He said he was pretty sure you could rock an RSR on the streets in Japan.  Low and behold, this video popped up on the internet.  Amazing, speechless, jealous.

Seat’s Taken

I can’t wait to have kids and raise them around cars.  Yea, cars are a love hate relationship…they can bring you the greatest joys…but be the worst addiction at the same time.  But through it all, I’ve have met some of my closest friends and enjoyed some of my best memories with both friends and family through cars.  Oil will always pump through my veins.

Forget measuring lip size with dollar bills, use kids!

The Deep End

14 03 2012

Sometimes the most beautiful things, are the most simple things.  It’s weird how a photo can take you away to another place and induce subconscious feelings.  I don’t know why, this picture makes me feel like driving open and free.  I think there’s something about how the GTR almost looks as if it is peering into the city outside of the mess, and ready to run on open roads.  Maybe I’m crazy, maybe you see something else…regardless, I think there is one thing we can all agree on, we all work too hard for the wrong things and to impress the wrong people in life.  Run free, run without regrets and on the edge, you owe it to yourself.

Jeremy Lin continues to amaze me.  Sure, his numbers and performance have been a feat in itself, but it’s his character that I find truly inspiring.  A man that could boast in his own victories on almost a daily basis, yet he almost shuns the lime light preferring to highlight his team mates instead.  Almost every chance he gets, he gives thanks to the Lord, and remains grounded.  Modest and humble…yet strong and steady, Jeremy Lin has the heart of a champion that I have yet to witness before.  May he continue to be the pillar that society needs in today’s world.

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord – Colossians 3:23

>>HGAG: TE37 Coffee Table<<

21 11 2011

Well, it’s definitely been a minute since I’ve posted ANYTHING about my home improvement projects.  No excuses here, just been lazy to post about them!

For this installment of HGAG, I’m posting up pictures of my DIY coffee table with a TE37 twist!  Below is a picture of the unassembled coffee table as my girlfriend and I opened the boxes.  This is before we knew how much work we’d have to put in. (I say we, but really my girlfriend is the one with the patience, and she helped IMMENSELY!)

Some of you may recognize the table and say it’s from IKEA, so what’s with the DIY statement?  Well, the table I wanted only comes in white, and it doesn’t match the decor of the rest of my living room…so a complete color change was in store.  In case you’re wondering, I looked high and low for a table that would work with the dimensions I needed, but no one had anything close to the style and size I was looking for.  Furniture shopping is brutal!  I had a feeling painting the table might be a pain, but I decided to just bite the bullet and go with it.

Before: Brand new in box, white.

During: This picture can’t do the process justice, the painting ended up taking roughly 3 days.  2 coats, 2 cans of black paint, and a couple curse words later, we were ready to assemble.  Did I mention I owe my girlfriend?

After: Finally, worn out, beaten and battered, the table was put together with the crowning jewel.  A center lock, MAG TE37 off the rear of a JGTC Supra.  The wheel measures up to be 18×13, truly massive with battle scars and all.

A better daytime shot.  Shout out to Jay from JDMEGO for the dice on the valve stem.  Also, thanks to Kevin and Freddie from Autofashion for making fun of my girlfriend and I as we assembled the final pieces!

All in all, the table came out even better than I could have imagined.  Fixing up cars, to fixing up houses, I guess some people just never change.  Hopefully I’ll be less lazy and try to post up some more installments in the near future.  Hope you guys are enjoying it!
