Lately, I have been taking more pictures than I can keep up with. I mostly fear that I won’t be able to keep up with what I am shooting and that the posts will suffer. What I really mean is that I recently got to shoot some things that I have always wanted to shoot but I have been so busy that I haven’t been able to share them.
The internet pretty much shows us just how small our world is. That statement is especially true in the world of cars. With a few clicks of our pointing device we can visit Japan and see what’s up. Another click can show us the latest emerging trends coming from the West coast or the immaculate street styles from the East Coast. Every so often a hidden gem gets pushed into the lime light and the internet lights up.
What can I say? Some of the boys are down in Las Vegas to cover this year’s SEMA Show for DODOlogic. I wish I was there, but I am not so I will do what I can do from here in the flat-lands to help the guys get their content up on the site for everyone to enjoy. Today in the Rundown we will talk some SEMA Show, some racing, some drifting and some other stuff. Let’s begin……..
I came across this article a while ago. It pertains to two things that I am a fan of, the first being Speedhunters and the second being the good people over at Fatlace. Mark Arcenal from Fatlace has recently starting organizing the “Word Up” events. “Word up” is a sweet little grassroots event that provides a drift venue to drivers of almost every skill level. Anyway, Speedhunters sent Linhbergh Nguyen to cover the event and in the true spirit of “Word up,” he got behind the wheel to drift for the first time ever.
So above is Mark’s purpose built drift car and easily my favourite zenki S14 out there eight now. I suggest checking out the rest of the story @ http://speedhunters.com/archive/2010/12/26/car-life-gt-gt-photographer-turned-donut-maker.aspx
So this month Speedhunters has been doing interviews with individuals in the automotive world. I was pumped when I saw that they had done one with Mark Arcenal. For those of you who are not familiar with Mark, he is the owner of Fatlace and creator of the Hellaflush blog amongst many other things. This interview gives a great deal of insight into the often misrepresented movement while adding a sense of legitimacy.
