Before this website I use to be really good at life blogging and lately I am just way to busy to get around to it. So last Thursday I had a really full day so I made sure to document it for the blog. The first photo above is Lucky who is my roommates cat. He is quite a character and greeted me before I left in the morning with him in the “play dead” position. Funny story actually is that the cat use to belong to Daijiro Yoshihara.
I headed down to Orange County for the first leg of my day and off Highway 55 there happens to be a Chick-Fil-A which I grabbed some breakfast at. They only have a few of these in California so when I am near one it’s a must for breakfast.
I saw this 1957 Porsche Carrera on Highway 55 heading to Hyundai. This thing looked flawless and was well maintained and cared for by the owner. It had a great sound to it as he flew by me down the highway.
My first stop was Hyundai North America to pick up some Genesis seats. Miles was a great help finding some seats for a new project we are doing. We will have more on project coming to the website soon.
I had to drop off my Mercedes carburetor to get rebuilt since it has been having some issues after it idles for a few minutes. In the parking lot is a red Mercedes CLK63 AMG Black that looked fantastic. A white M3 was also in the corner of the parking lot when I swung by.
After dropping off the Mercedes parts in Orange County I headed up to Manhattan Beach to shoot some Wrecked Magazine voice overs. Peter from Modified Magazine lives at the apartment we were recording at and had this nostalgic Super Street Magazine cover hanging in the dining room.
Nik did an awesome job with our Wrecked Magazine voice overs. She is the voice of a tutorial we are releasing later this month. This second photo is Nik engrossed in deep thought about her favorite Formula Drift driver Rhys Millen.
After dropping off Nik and heading into Downtown Los Angeles I found some traffic of course.
Here I am crossing the Sixth Street Bridge heading into Los Angeles. This bridge is always empty and has a distinct look and feel that I just love as you drive into downtown.
Coming off the Sixth Street bridge you get a great view of Downtown Los Angeles. It’s also not very often you see clouds around Los Angeles so I really liked this shot.
Sitting on a desk when I walked in to my meeting was a Forza Motorsport 3 Xbox 360. Very few of these were made and it features an Audi R8 and a carbon fiber styled front.
I also scored two gifts while visiting including Halo 3 ODST and a Snoop Dog x Famous Stars Straps 10 Year Anniversary Party t-shirt. The photograph of Snoop Dog was shot by Estevan Oriol.
The last shot comes from the ID Agency where some awesome classic cars are sitting right now. My favorite is this blue Chevrolet truck you can see in this shot. After leaving here it was off to home in lots of traffic.
