A Night with Flushstyle Thailand

The Rest Area Prachachuen; Bangkok, Thailand. Founded in 2011, Flushstyle Thailand (FS) is the movement that is responsible for elevating the country’s fitment scene. Back in 2013, after joining FS’ Second Year Anniversary, my commitment into digging deeper towards the different branches of car culture strengthened. An era unexplored on a global scale, Southeast Asian countries such as…

VISITING RWB AUTOHAUS THAILAND

Ramintra 101; Bangkok, Thailand.  4 years ago, during my first trip to Thailand, I first saw how an RWB 911 looked like in person. As an avid fan of RAUH-Welt Begriff and Porsche in general, RWB Thailand instantly had a special place in my heart. After that trip, I made a promise to myself to visit the…

FTLC x SPMF join forces in Manila.

2013. 2015. 2017. 3 different years of Stance Pilipinas / Manila Fitted hosting a “welcome meet” for our friends here at Fatlace / Hellaflush. Through my 3 years of experience with Offset Kings shows in Japan, I felt the urgency that Manila’s meets should be up to par with what’s being done overseas. On to…

2016: WHAT A YEAR

4 annual year ender posts after, 2016 marked my 3rd year with Fatlace – a group which I consider more than just being “car friends”. As the curtains close for this year, memories that solidified the “local car scene” into the map resonates in the back of my head. Comparing 2016 with 2015 in terms…

Photo Gallery: RWB Akira

Before I publish my year-ender post for 2016, I’ve decided to add a quick feature on RAUH–Welt Begriff Manila #2, Akira. The one-off moniker draws inspiration from its creator, Akira Nakai. Built back in June 2013 together with Car Porn Racing, this example is known to be one of two non-993 RWBs in the Philippines. I…

OSAKA BY FIRE

Since 2013, before my annual year-ender, I make it a practice to publish a Hellaflush feature that moved me during that year. Last year, our adventures in Daikoku PA/Tatsumi PA took the cake for being a memorable night for numerous reasons. For 2016, as I planned my trip to Osaka, Japan, I was puzzled on how to match that…

YEAR SEVEN

December 11, 2016 marked Stance Pilipinas / Manila Fitted‘s (SPMF) 7th Year Anniversary meet. The group, which was originally meant to gather vehicles/owners who are inclined towards the “aggressive fitment movement” has embraced different types of car customization. Here are several photos from yesterday’s meet. QUICK BACKGROUND: Before the group page was established on the eve of…

BUILT FROM SCRATCH: DAT Z FROM JAPAN

The way how Japanese dedicate a lifetime to their craft is extraordinary. An incomparable process, achieving a certain level of “experty” begins with each goal being instilled from the start as they perfect their craft. Each day, each challenge, numerous techniques are developed in their quest for perfection. For example, before reaching “itamae status” or…
