Such damn good taste. Amazing
Hello ricers! My name is Newton and I’ll be helping out while contributing a bit here and there from here on out…
Welcome to May 1st, May day! (or 2nd if you’re reading this on the 2nd since I’m posting this late) Let me give you a little background about myself as well as a few things I hope to do over the next few months…
So who am I exactly? I’m the Mayday mystery video man. You may remember some of the videos I shot a while back such as:
I think I started becoming a fan of the older model Porsche’s when this movie came out.
A goal for Mayday Garage this year is to be more active than we were last year and what better way to show that by attending Round 1 of FormulaD’s 10th year anniversary held on the streets of Long Beach, CA. It is also my first time back in California since the last FormulaD event. If you didn’t get a chance to read it, click HERE.
As the saying goes, “Old habits die hard”; watching this video by XCar about a grown man and his passion for noisy Hondas made me remember the times I snuck out and street raced. Though I’m turning 30 this year, I sometimes have that urge to attack corners with lines, stage on a traffic light and weave traffic when running late; can’t deny I still have an inner ricer. I don’t condone the reckless driving behavior and it’s definitely something I outgrew. Yes, my first car was a Honda Civic and modifications were funded by saving lunch money and working part-time at the food joint. Life was simple, all I did was hung-out with friends and worked on cars. My wife still doesn’t believe me that I never had a serious girlfriend till I was 20, because my car was my girlfriend. I spent money on car parts than flowers and movies. As Initial D calls it, “lonely driver”; I wasn’t really lonely, I was contented. Looking back, I can say those were the fun days that I would cherish forever.
Someday, I would like to find me another Honda (preferably a 91′ Civic Si Hatchback) just to reminisce and mess with or when I feel like taking a “lonely driver” cruise at night. There’s definitely something about a classic, squash smelling Momo Monte Carlo, RS-R muffler, 1.5 inch lowered, Mugen RNR wrapped in Azenis RT-615, FF Honda Civic hatch that always puts a smile on my face.
PS: Wish they showed more of the older “Kanjo style” Civics they had than the “flush” EK.
It was a close battle between these two, but Matt Powers took home 1st place. He’ll definitely be pumped up and ready for FD Rd.2 Road Atlanta.
Once a former grassroots drifter from Texas, Chelsea Denofa, prepares for the FormulaD season.
