During my stay in the Philippines a few weeks ago, i was itching to see some cars, til my friends from Manila Fitted invited me to one of their meets that they have every once in a while. Thanks to my cousin, i was able to use her camera to take a few photos. Although i did show up a little late, i was able to see some pretty good looking cars. A few replica wheels, but at least they understand “wheel fitment”.
Kevin’s lifted S15 Silvia. haha jk. <3 Lower it alreadyy!!!

Every November, car enthusiasts from all over the Philippines fly in to the country’s capital for the highly anticipated Manila Auto Salon. This is the perfect time to showcase the local builds and to promote their respective shops. Here are some of the photos from this year’s show.
Coy’s Supercharged Rocket Bunny 86 is one the most popular builds in our country today.
You can never go wrong with these Enkei RS05RR’s, concave wheels at its finest.
The design of the new Lexus IS is simply amazing.
A classic alteration of the Fairlady Z, conservatively dropped, modified engine and Te-37′s.
One of my favorites from the show, this super clean FD Rx-7.
Possibly the craziest Scion (Toyota BB) in our country today, chopped, caged and fitted with a K20 engine.
The show also featured SUV’s in different types of modification’s.
Defender’s never fail to amaze me, definitely one of the most iconic SUV’s of all time.
I would love a chance to acquire one of these “drop-side” Land Cruiser 70′s.
The country’s most powerful Ford GT was displayed by Autoplus. Check out those Re30′s and massive tires.
Beautiful pristine condition 911 Targa.
Car Porn Racing showcased the country’s first four RWB’s, Victoria, Akira, General and Ellise.
Akira now sports a matte-metallic vinyl, wrapped by the owner himself.
Nakai-san flew in 3 days before the show’s ingress to build the latest of the four car’s “Ellise”, a 993 Targa in its OEM shade, the rare “Riviera Blue”.
Seeing one of my childhood favorite OEM colors on a RWB left me speechless.
RWB General broke records this year by winning “Best of Show” in tuner and in custom categories.
RWB Victoria was the crowd’s favorite. Check out its build thread here: http://fatlace.com/2013/06/the-birth-of-rauh-welt-manila/
But the build thread never stopped as it surprised everyone with its new heart..
Car Porn Racing’s signature v8 treatment was applied on the 993 by fitting in a LS1 engine.
I will end this post with a car that deserves international recognition, the 1000whp r34 GTR by Autoplus.
Yes it is street legal and left-hand drive. Left-hand drive? Find out soon how it was built as I am currently working on a shoot for this epic build.
Til next time.

This past weekend we celebrated Hunters 4th Birthday. We transformed the Fatlace Paddock into a one of those places parents rent to have their kids birthday. With the newly enameled flooring, the paddock looked extremely good with the kiddie tables, rc race track where the photo booth area was, and the back had its own crazy cart race track and jumpy.
Before the guests arrived.
Nice little jumpy in the back.
Hunter testing out the track with his friend.
Getting real serious. This guy was passing kids up by any means necessary.
From the balcony of where the new RC track is going to be.
Cindy went to town on the details.
Nuts & Bolts…
Hunters awesome AE86 with TE37V’s.
With his mom and sister Sky.
Starting up the shave ice bus!
Ben helped me out pouring the syrup.
Brooklyn & Audrey with initial D game in the background
Hunter & Mommy.
The leftover kids after 6 hours of fun. Thanks to everyone who made his birthday something super special. He said next year he’ll do it again at the paddock.Posted in Life, Stayfresh Crew | Tagged crazycart, Fatlace, huntersworld | Leave a comment 02/12/2013

This year was supposed to be my first Thanksgiving staying in New York, so I figured I’d gather my motley crew of friends and do an epic feast of sorts. Turns out I’m now in the Bay stuffed to the gills from the most incredible array of traditional Chinese fare courtesy of Auntie Shang (maybe I’ll share those later), but my friends and I still managed to get together last Sunday and do some damage. When we’re not out running the streets of New York (literally), we’re out dancing on tables or eating. You can follow our food adventures @FREAMTEAM.
Pimp daddy Fred Goris qualified for the Boston Marathon not too long ago. That means he runs faster than you, yo’ mama & yo’ cousin too. That also means we’ll be causing ruckus in Boston come next April. Beantown ain’t ready.
The pain of eating too much? Or the pain of being ridiculously good looking? We’ll never know. Keith and I met during OSR’s annual charity auction to raise money for the LES Boy’s And Girl’s Club. I’m a sucker for beautiful art & good causes so I scooped up a photograph by him that now hangs above my bed. In an awkward way, I guess you can say I think about Keith before I go to sleep sometimes. Uh… so awkward. Don’t get it twisted, Keith. #eandk2014aaf
Because I was too busy cooking and cleaning and hosting, I didn’t have the chance to snap any pictures of the food. Let’s just say my entire dining table was covered in eats, a second countertop was covered in appetizers/ sides, there was a 22LB grilled turkey present and I have never, ever seen so much food in my apartment at one time. But of course, we had to leave room for dessert… which couldn’t fit anywhere, so we put it on the coffee table downstairs. Geb’s face says it all.
F for #FREAM. But of course.
I leave you with a picture of the ultimate thug, my brother from another: Ryan S. Lee. New York is lucky to have you. I am lucky to have you. Welcome to the big apple!!!
And my home away from home.

Aloha paradise, a hui hou!
