Mayday_Garage_Chronicles_Year7-22

A few weeks ago, I planned a trip to SEMA. Unfortunately, that plan kinda failed so the next best thing to do was to have our local automotive master tech, Andy Soun, help us out with coverage photos. If you’re not sure who Andy Soun is, he’s a badass mechanic for hire around the country. From working on classic Porsche 356’s to FormulaD spec FRS’s, he’s worked on almost everything. This includes Tom Syachack’s infamous S2000… but we’ll go into detail about their history another time.


Tom had to take a leak so Andy took this chance to get a snap of their trip…

The Chronicles Year 7 event is an annual event held by Joey Lee of Stickydiljoe.com showing off some of the best import builds in the country. It was also a gathering of supporters and friends the weekend before SEMA 2015, which meant a pre show/party before the real show and party.  Tom and his S2000 are one of the few icons in the import car world, so he had to show up to Year7 since he was going to make an appearance at SEMA in Las Vegas anyways.


Remember these wheels because they will probably change next year…

Have a peak inside the cockpit, where you’ll find only the bare essentials carefully crafted for one purpose… SPEED.
