Happy Tea House meet

The meet before the Lone Star Drift series, was held at Happy Tea House. Had a busy night shift the night before and I wanted to just relax and do something productive. That day I cleaned my place, paid bills, washed my car and painted my tires because race car. I headed to the meet with my camera handy. 


Nice Sil-Eightly front end. 




This car reminded of the Caterham Super 7 cars in Europe. I bet is fast and handles like its on rails. 







I believe this TL has -15 camber, a bit more that mine and daily driven too. 



Wang and diffuser, soo clean




Two RX-7s is a rare shit to see. This one is toyota powered.




Bagged beauty

One of our very own’s Natsukashi Garage member is Alans S2000. I met this guy way back, when we were both in high school and ever since then we have been friends. Alan had a B16 swaped EK9 in high school but his EK9 was tragically stollen after 1 year. We did find the EK9 but it was too late and car was literally gutted out. That didn’t stop Alan from cars and got a bone stock white AP1. As the years pasted this S2000 has undergone many transformations through out the years.

Alan is more into the stance game with his S2000 and it shows. His previous wheel sets were Enkei NT03 concave faces, and then Work VS XX, and now Work VS KF which matches the car very well.

Alan s2000-06

I remember working on his S2000 couple years ago to lower his car more with his HKS HyperMax coilovers. Basically we maxed it out and I still would tease him my Miata and GTI are more dumped.

Dat assssss.

Creamy bokeh, yeah out of focus on purpose.

Alan s2000-08

Recently Alan got a Amuse rep front bumper and a Mugen hard top. I personally don’t like to do a hard top on convertible cars but you build your car for yourself.

Alan s2000-05

Work VS KF with gold hardware is a nice touch. Alan currently has bigger lips siting in his house and planing to do over fenders in the near future.

Shop Day

Hey peeps,

New jack, AJ here. This is my first post here on the blog. I’ve been silently lurking in the shadows of the NG Facebook, and Instagram pages. But now that I have a somewhat decent camera (Nikon d40), I am now able to contribute to the blog. So the other day a few of us decided we were going to go up to Cody’s shop to use his tools, lifts, and tire stretching capabilities to mount up some new tires on Thaison’s hatch. The following pictures are of the hood rat shit we accomplished. Also bear with me as I am still getting used to my camera. I haven’t actually taken pictures with a decent camera since high school.


Vinson’s dirty ass bbs’s sittin in the parking lot.


Cody using the cheetah to try and seat the bead on Thaison’s new 175 tires. Looks like Thaison took it to the face though.


That stretch.


Back on the ground to check the height of the front suspension.


And back in the air to lower the front some more. Which was the point of the smaller tires to begin with.


Randy’s “NG Tow Truck”


Cody trying to figure out how he’s gonna get in the car over the roll cage.


Mean muggin


Biss throwin it up for the west coast. Cause we all hood.


We heard you like big wangs.



Four hours later we decided we could let Cody go home.

NST Meet

NST -17

The guys at NST hosted a meet at one of the tea houses I go to chill. After the gym and dinner with some buddies we headed to the NST meet at Happy Tea House. My friends wanted to go early but I wanted to arrive fashionably late. Being filipino you never arrive on time to an event because it shows you are over eager. We left at 9pm thinking we would get there in 15mins but ran into a huge wreck on the highway and ended up being a 30min drive.

And of course since we arrived late we couldn’t find any parking hahaha.
