Life: The Chronicles Year 8

Hey all,

I’m finally finishing catching up the events I went to a few months ago.  This should be the last of the posts for now…..I wanted to go to the Chronicles Year 8 meet for awhile now.  Reading about them on Joey’s blog when I was living on the East coast, it always painted me a good picture of the SoCal car scene.  I knew I couldn’t miss out this year, it helps to have car friends to go with too.


This meet just so happens to be when I was in the process of moving to my new place.  I had a bunch of stuff to move and only a few days to do it….. My wife was exciting to hear I was going to a car meet instead 🙂


I met up with a few friends in Pasadena before heading out to year 8.  Chilling in front of the infamous rival machine.

Gabe’s car just came out of the paint a few days prior…. The car is looking minty fresh with the battlecraft hood.


Joe was ready to lead the way.  Those MF10s are looking dangerously close to the curb in this picture… You can remember Joe’s car from this post

My buddy Alvin snapped some shots on the road…..Endless brakes look so good with the Bronze Mugen MF10 rims.


Mugen hood, CR lip, works surprisingly well.

We’re almost there…..


Of course, this being S2kandTheAnt….I met up with Areen and Chris….. they don’t need any introductions.


interesting pinstriping on the Enkei NT03 on the Rival Machine


626 Squad.


another angle of the 626 squad.


Spoon’s newly converted center-drive FD2 Honda Civic Type R was in attendance.  I even got to sit in it! In another life, this used to be 5Zigen’s FD2R in Japan.

S2k squad represent.

It was a hot hot hot day, I think it was close to 100 degrees this day, the crazy heat forced me to buy a spoon umbrella……yeah forced……


I thought these 24k gold engine bays have gone out of style, but it looks like it is still around.


Can’t get enough of this lineup…..


Cool styled NSX.


I loved this mugen kited DC2 Type R.


the Bronze Mugen MF10 looks great against the white.


The same Spoon Civic EG that was in my Spoon sports post.  Clean as always, rocking almost the catalog of spoon parts, but that damn Mishimoto radiator always gets me!  Link for the owner if he ever reads this.


I haven’t seen this in years, an Ap1 veilside lip.


Another picture of the S2000 Veilside lip.


This Mugen themed FD2 converted Civic looked great.


the only Evo ix at the show and it was a great example of one.


Rare Mugen FA5.  True story, I remember going to a dealership in 2009 and the salesman tried to sell me this car instead of the 2009 s2k I was looking at, he was working really hard at it, these cars must have been a hard sale at the time, no real power improvements that make a car cost $6k more….but now in hindsight, it might of been a good decision….


CDM as in Canadian Domestic Market Acura CSX…. with a supercharger and Itasha livery.


PY Integra Type R.


Hector Lavario‘s Voltex Theme S2k was looking good!


Either this in an imported car or a very authentic representation of an early D1 drift car.  I love the look, very nostalgic.


Chris popped his hood, and I couldn’t help  but to snap a picture.  Mugen intakes are my favorite…..


behind me was this swan-necked Suzuka blue s2k.


Rocking Voltex Styled Aero!  Overall this was well executed.  The red car next to this car was actually K swapped using Hasport mounts…. Update 4-10-2017….. this car was on a Smoking Tire One Take


A few Porches were in attendance.


ASM styled car with M racing mirrors.

And this closes it, from the garage, back to the garage…
