On Saturday Renegade and Sarapbuhay held a meet in the parking lot of Thaison’s slaughter lane Pho Thaison shop. It was a lot of fun with a turnout larger than we were expecting. At one point Thaison was even worrying about whether or not all the cars would fit in the lot, but sure enough everyone did. Jash holds regular meets under the Renegade alias up at k1 speed in Austin, Texas. From what I heard the initial reason for this meet was a farewell deal for Sarapbuhay. I’d like to think it was really because it was my birthday, but hey I’m conceited. The meet was interesting in that all sorts of cars showed up for the good time. Unlike most meets this went off without a hitch in that there were no burnouts or other forms of stupidity that usually occur at these things. It was a nice breath of fresh air and since it was in Austin, I got to see a lot of good friends that usually don’t take their cars out for other meets.
In this collection of photos I have the honor of posting on behalf of Vinson as well as a guest photographer and good friend of Natsukashi Garage, Warren Chan. Warren is an awesome photographer and him and his brother are starting a new clothing line called “Redline” We will be sure to keep you updated on their doings as well as possibly planning a meet with them in the future?
Thaison also decided to have Natsukashi Garage host the “pre-meet” at his William Cannon Restaurant a few hours before the meet. We all agreed it would be fun and thus we did just that! Anyways, on to the photos, I hope you all enjoy!
Lets kick off the pre-meet with a photo by Warren of our boy Evarett’s sick s13 coupe

Good friends and chill vibes is what this pre-meet was all about

Billy Perkin’s reppin’ that Dad lyfe
But really, Dat Van Doe
UHHHHH SON. Thaison always is killin’ the game
Our new friend Seth and his tacoma… this thing has the original motor, boosted. All mechanical, no ecu or anything. I really look forward to his future builds and the future of this truck.

Probably the best put together WRX I’ve seen out of the great state of Texas!

Enjoy the good vibes of Al and Alban. How cute ^_^
For real though, Lemme Holla at you
Clark, who is probably stuck under a bed with his Pizza plate and mk1 jetta
Not sure if I dig the wheels on this accord, but I do enjoy the work done to it.
Some of the homies hanging out. It was see how many people we can fit in a 4 door DA night.
Since I’m a bike head I had to show some love for the fireblade
A new repsol 600? I’m game. I love these things
Slammed accord reppin’ renegade
The homie Rob Deep’s dope s13

I’m sure a lot of people would agree this FD was the car of the show. It was executed perfectly.
Over fenders never get old, especially on slammed NA miata’s
It’s always nice to see the rarely modified em2’s modified in some way
Julion and his drift missile. He also thinks hes da shittttt
Kenny Ha’s awesome s13 coupe. This car has come a long way and is always a blast to watch when it tears up the Texas drift scene
There is just something about flip up headlights
EVERYBODY DAT GOTTA SCOOTER SAY YEAHHHHHH
Oni camber style making it’s way to the states? Oh yes please
Tyree’s awesome Protege. This guy is a driver’s driver
another drift crew
Like I said, at this meet anything goes. Lowrider with a blower? I quit. This thing is awesome. It had details everywhere that really made this car unique and well built. It’s one thing to sticker bomb your car and make it “unique”, but real quality and work shines through in the end.
The homie Fabian’s EA. This is his second EA and it always gets better and better. Peep the rare original Mugen’s and fog lights. He even has the covers for them
No I normally do not like Celica’s but Squirrel Squad did this one right.
The new homie Chris’s PERFECT BB6. Works with a Mugen kit all around fitted with a Mugen wing. Tasty
More of Elliot’s Audi
Love it or hate it, he’s a free spirit who builds some sick cars. This one happens to be twin turbo. Get ready for his next creation around 2014
Custom ninja 650
Ricky Dinh’s awesome ek on 4 lug ITR’s and carbon fiber goodies
An awesome evo on what appeared to be CCW’s
Fryer’s circuit monster single cam build
Awesome old corolla with a bit of a twist
That’s right folks, stock motor with a HUGE turbo. It sounded awesome as well
Moe’s slammed Jetta
Wish I had more on this car, but it’s single cam setup was nice
Just gotta love a well done s2000
And as always we keep it real with Natsukashi Garage
A huge thanks to both Warren and Vinson for the collaboration on the coverage. It was a great meet regardless of the low light. Hope to do it again sometime!
