The Japanese Nostalgic Car Meet 2018

The Japanese Nostalgic Car Meet -  free to attend, bad ass classic Japanese cars, good local craft beer, cool/cold weather, and lots of car people.  I'd say this year's turnout for JNCM was pretty good.... not too crazy or out of hand like the Wekfest Pre Meet, but enjoyable without too much concern lol.  With that being said, we really appreciate those who attended, [...]

The Ricer Series - Pec's N2 AE86 Levin

  Hi Stranger...  It's been a while since my last post, but I promise I'll catch up on what I've been doing in the next month... maybe. Until then, I'm going to start up a new photo series called "The Ricer Series".  This will be more of a personal project featuring friends, cars, places, or things to be considered 'rice'.  Why 'rice'?  Because it's either fuck[...]

We Got Scammed - Thailand Budget Travel

Fujifilm X100T Review - The Perfect Everyday Camera?

Why am I reviewing a 2 yrs old camera?  To be honest, I'm always wanting to try out different cameras, lenses, and even smart phones.  I came across the Fujifilm X-series because a friend uses the XT-2, but that option was far too pricey.  Now I'm looking at a Fujifilm X100F... pretty much the same specs as the Fujifilm X100T other than the processor, Autofocus (AF), [...]
