My drive…

Working each & everyday to get here…

As much as I am into modifying cars, I am all about modifying everything in life as well.

That includes my future home.

One day, someday soon…

This house kind of remind me of Tony Starks home (Iron Man) lol

I somehow want a talking home just like him.

Traggic Loss… HELP JAPAN!

Got this from my buddy Jay from JDMEGO

I owe a TON to the culture of Japan. I’m heartbroken. Please help. Text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation to Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami.

I just can’t even bare to imagine how this has affected so many lives in Japan…

All my condolences goes out to all the families in Japan.

All the lost ones will be in my prayers.

CHOICES.

I think too many times, people forget, that our lives are shaped by the choices we individually make.  Every decision we make, no matter how big, or how small somehow shapes the outcome of our “destiny”.  Sure some of us are dealt better cards than others, but nothing is set in stone.  As long as you have the will to make those hard decisions, and are willing to actually pursue your dreams then  EVERYTHING and I mean absolutely EVERYTHING is possible.  If you think something is impossible…that’s a choice and a decision that you made…don’t limit yourself…become legendary.

Motion Typography: Rocky Balboa Inspirational Speech

This is so AWESOME!

I just had to post this 4 my Phen Club members!

To all the people who think they are beat down or lost.

I dedicate this to you.

Always KEEP YOUR HEAD UP HIGH & keep pushing forward towards your DREAMS.

Don’t let ANYTHING or ANYONE stop you from achieving your GOALS.

Motion typography I created for Rocky Balboa’s inspirational speech to his son.

Anyone is free to feature this animation on their website, please just drop me a message letting me know!

“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t how hard you hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done. Now, if you know what you’re worth, now go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!” – Rocky Balboa

“JUST DO IT.” – Nike

When it comes to the automotive retail industry also classified as the “Import Scene“, there is just by far too much competition IMHO.

(Within Southern, California that is…)

As in…

What shop would you trust enough to take your car into to get that certain part installed, aligned or even trusting the right shop to order parts from at the lowest price possible?

When those certain things come in mind, I can only think of a few shops in Southern California.

1. High End Performance

2. Minds Corp

3. SP-Engineering

4. Evasive Motorsports

Although I have never personally ordered any parts form SP-Engineering & Evasive Motorsports, I know for a fact they are the main US authorized distributors for high end JDM parts over anyone in CA for ex. Voltex

Did I miss any other highly reputable shops when it comes to JDM parts?

In order to survive running a retail automotive shop in this economy, I strongly suggest everyone to step up their game to get more exposure or by taking the next step with their marketing strategies.

Perfect example: Evasive Motorsports new 2011 promo commercial!

Established in 2002, Evasive Motorsports has been dedicated to the import tuning industry. We provide the highest quality performance parts as well as race preparation services and consultation. As fellow automotive enthusiasts, you can trust a company that shares the same love as you. For more information, visit us at http://www.EvasiveMotorsports.com.

Great job guys!

I know when it comes to Redline Time Attack, Evasive Motorsports is highly respected with their record breaking S2000, Evo, and Honda Civic Si.

Stop talking & “JUST DO IT”! – Nike

On that quest for my new BMW M5*

As most of you know, I recently let go of my VIP/Drift project car:

1995 Nissan 240sx S14 Zenki.

It was pretty sad to let her go with all the time I dreaded into that car…

To those that have helped me with that project, knows how much time and dedication I put into that car from changing out every single bolt from my undercarriage, replacing new moldings, seals, bushings, joints, arms, you name it!

That is just the “perfection” side of me that comes out when modifying my cars.

I believe the car is in good hands, especially it being my lil dongsengs (brother) second 240sx project build.

I trust him to finish the car by adding nothing but the best JDM parts in the market and with class the way it should be. The S14 is honestly @ the perfect base platform to start being creative with it. All it needed was a new paint job, rims, bbk, bucket seats, and a bodykit of some sort to bring out the character within the car.

Andy please don’t disappoint me on your new project or else… SHEKKI! JK

Well… with all that said.

Vorsteiner CF Front Splitter = love it!

Did I mention this is not paint?

Green Vinyl Wrap FTW!

Vorsteiner CF rear spoiler and diffuser giving that extra contrast.

You can never go wrong with some minor carbon fiber accessories on an exotic.

Gas eaters…

Agency Power pulley kit helps push this beat to 392rwtq & 306rwhp…

Ehh a bit weak but not bad IMO

Nice brazzer shot!

Valvetronic Agency full cat-back exhaust system, in other words LOUD = GOOD to my ears.

Come to think of it, every car I’ve modded in the past was always known to have the loudest exhaust for what the car was pushing…muhaha

Man does that two tone interior gets to me…arghhhh!

Custom DCT Motorsports CF Steering wheel = I MUST HAVE!

COR 20′ inch Forged Rims dumped on H&R springs.

He needs some DPE‘s IMHO

(shouts to my boy Manu @ DPEngineering)!

380mm Stop-Tech 6-Piston BBK’s are hiding behind those wheels somewhere…

Bruno Mars – Just the Way You Are

When I see your face
There’s not a thing that I would change
Cause you’re amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you’re amazing
Just the way you are

Happy Wife Appreciation Day!

Megan Fox…needless me to say more?

“the tip?”

The new face of Emporio Armani Woman’s Underwear and Jeans.

For you noobs, she was the reason why 99% of men world wide watched this one certain movie called “Transformer”

aka “official adult toy movie” they call it…

Now for the big question.

Would you have taken the money or not?

Don’t lie…

Be true to yourself….

Comment with your answer if you have balls!

Man I got so caught up with Megan Fox I forgot to explain what “Wife Appreciation Day” is….

So here it is.

What is the Origin of this holiday?

Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this holiday. This holiday is referred to as a “National” day.  However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though we didn’t, this is still a holiday that is publicized to celebrate. So have fun with it and celebrate it!

For you married, single, lonely, horny, depressed, happy or whatever man you are.

Tell someone special like your wifey or a future potential wife of yours that today on September 19th is the official “National Wife Appreciation Day”!

This day is to be celebrated on the 3rd Sunday in the month of September.

So run along, it is not too late…DON’T FREAK OUT!

Think outside the box for once, step up your “A GAME” and get that crazy creative mind out of your system.

This doesn’t consist of you digging deep into your pockets to buy yourself out of it either…

Take the time off of your daily routine to do something clever buy kissing her nonstop, because in most cases… I don’t think many woman truly are aware of this holiday.

Go buy that someone special a boutique of flowers, cook dinner, clean the house or do something spontaneous to make them the special woman/wife that they are to you in your life.

In conclusion, show that special someone that you truly care and how much you appreciate her for being a part in your life.

I hope this helps all you fellow itzjOw3.com Phen Club members and earns you that extra “Brownie point”  guaranteed by me that you’ve been longing for from your woman.

Oh and for me?

I already took the time to do so for my special someone ❤

P.S – Man this is the most I’ve ever written on my itzjOw3.com Phen Club blog….
