Crazy long day at #stancenationsocal again, but fun times as always. I love helping put on these shows. This car ended up as my pick of the show. Once it rolled in, I couldn't stop looking at it or talking about it. Absolutely love the Vlene kit. Just an amazing car.

I was first introduced to VIP in 2002 or 2003. It was an issue of @superstreet that featured a y32 Gloria. It was a bit more GT themed than traditional VIP, but it got me interested in modifying sedans. Not long after that, I got my hands on a video feature of the Fabulous UCF30 Celsior with 2JZ-GTE swap and Greddy turbo kit, and of course a full Fabulous kit and Fabulous Profound wheels. That car stuck with me for years, and I still think back to it today. I played around with sports cars and racing for awhile, but I knew that someday I'd have a badass, Japanese sedan done up to cruise around in. That was 14-years ago. Now I'm in my 30s with two VIP cars and planning a third. It's what I love to build and see (with the occasional race car thrown in the mix). VIP was never a fad for me. It's a lifestyle that I stumbled upon years ago and I could never shake that impact. I researched the culture and style however I could; magazines, videos and dvds, forums, etc. I read and listened, and it took years for me to form my own take on it. I looked up to a lot of people in the community, and hoped to one day have a car half as nice as any of theirs. None of this was done overnight. Not this car, not my LS400, none of my skills, talent, or knowledge were gained overnight. Despite me buying #brokey33, it wasn't done overnight. It took a lot of hours working to have those funds, and the funds to have the car repaired. I guess what I'm getting at is your dreams aren't realized overnight. It takes years to achieve them, and when you achieve them, you always end up wanting to reach a little further. I guess that's why we never stop dreaming. #vipstylecars #brokey33 #vipdout #stancenation #thecharisculture #bippulife #usvip #usdmfreax #bippu #infiniti #q45 #y33 #cima #centralpine #ssrwheels #vrwheels #sedankings #anomalybunka #stylestrangers

Me and @rocketbunnydoge took his @anomalybunka x @rocket_bunny_ Miata to the #drivecartel #carsandcraft show today and walked away with Best of Show! Totally unexpected. For a growing event in Minnesota, it's one to check out. The venue is one of a kind, and the atmosphere is great. We will be at the next one with a few more of our cars ๐Ÿ‘ #trakyoto #rocketbunny #rocketbunnymiata #pandemrocketbunny #bestofshow #bestinshow #gprauto #anomalybunka #stylestrangers #stancenation #thecharisculture #949racing #downstarinc #rtheorymotorsports #straitdesign #lrbspeed #rev9 #rev9autosport at Flat Earth Brewing Company

Some tire issues prevented a photoshoot for the Q45 after I played with the suspension, alignment and fitment all day, but I didn't let that stop me from enjoying the weather #volkswagen #karmannghia #vw #cruise #thecharisculture #anomalybunka #stylestrangers
