Just wanted to share my most recent accomplishment.... if you can call it that.

Car finally made it to print in the July 2009 issue of Honda-Tuning! Wow.... still can't really believe it. Make sure you go snatch a copy of it once it finally hits the newsstands later this week. Been a long wait.... cars changed quite abit since it was shot last August out in Vancouver, but it's all good.

Big thanks to everyone that made this possible!

- Speedtech dudes... Will you're the man! And a big thanks to Shadowz as well for his time at STRD.
- Southern JDM homies.... you know who you are.
- ek2.0 (the e-mack) yes your name made it to print lol, hillarious!
- beyond.ca (Kenny & Rage2) for runing this awesome car site and getting me hooked to this hobby of ours.
- everyone else, you also know who you are!


Pics aren't mine.... I'll scan some better ones once I actually get a copy of the magazine.

I think it's a sign that was in the background..... i think he probably should have shot at a slightly different angle lol. But it was kinda a mess. Did the shoot in Vancouver and neither myself nor the photographer had a clue where we were or where to go.

You have to buy your own.. the publisher buys pics from the photographer so they generally have no idea who you are.

Ha ha. Can't even get a free issue but the way the publishing industry is in the shitter right now I'm not surprised. Congratulations though as it's nice to see local cars get their due.

I copped an issue from Chapters....Shawnessy....but as far as I know it was the last one on those shelves...

Yea I grabbed a couple from Shawnessy Chapters... but EK2.0 got the last one after me. I tried Chinook Chapters and they have nothing.

Apparently some 7-11's have them.

I must say it's a kick ass issue (beside my heap being in it). I think there's 5 or 6 full features which is more than usual.

Picked up the issue two days ago at chapters chinook, they had a stack of them when I was there. Congrats again, feature looked good, and is a pretty stacked issue for nice rides.

Kind of interesting to see the lead editor leaving so soon... Hopefully the new editor gets longer articles for feature cars in there asap IMO. I think the articles have been getting shorter and shorter in Honda-tuning lately and its annoying, if I wanted to look at pictures of cars I would just browse internet forums instead of buying the magazine, the article is half the fun.
