I was out of town last week visiting my home town of Elkhorn, Wisconsin. Because of this absence I missed Tuesday Video day and must not provide two!
First is an update. For those of you who haven’t found out yet I got in a motorcycle accident yesterday. Luckily I am okay and my bike will be fixed, but because of this I miss my bike and already miss riding. Here is a sweet video about an awesome honda motorcycle
So every year, 86 day is celebrated around the time of August 6th. This year, 8/6 landed on a Monday, which makes it difficult for many people to attend an event on the actual day — bc of work, school, etc. So all of us local Texas 86 guys always celebrate 86 weekend, usually the weekend before 86 day. This year, we decided to celebrate August 3-5.
This year, we decided to all meet in Austin and enjoy 86 festivities in this beautiful city.
Day 1 — 8/3:
Mark & Jonas were the only out of towners that made it this year. Mark drove all the way down from Dallas. Jonas trailered his hatch all the way from Houston. They got in Friday afternoon and came down to the pho shop to meet up with Joseph and I. P.S. most of the pictures in this blog post are shot with a Minolta MAXXUM 7000 35mm camera. Circa 1985. What better way than to celebrate an 80’s car with a period correct camera! All images unedited.
Well, a little apologies to you all for not posting up CCM part 2 yet. It’s been a fast paced two weeks since I acquired a little something that requires some work. I’ll make sure to post on it later. This next video was one that really got me into the honda scene. This video was back before the stance movement when the main priority was having some awesome rare rims, and if you were into “looks” then you just slammed the poop out of your car. Flush wasn’t relevant yet, but sunk wheels were. I miss days like these, oh he nostalgia…..
On a side note this video is also what got me into blue scholars back in 08 and has changed my musical preference ever since. If you’ve never listened to Blue Scholars you need to because this duo is hands down one of the best in hip hop. Along with almost all other Seattle MC’s…. Common Market, Macklemore, etc.
