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…

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.

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…

FROM HIROSHIMA WITH LOVE

More than a year ago I met Kohei Fujii. Me and Kohei, being fans of the last Skyline from the 90’s had similar things in common, with this, we closely contacted each other regarding our ER34 builds. When Fujii-San gave me a glimpse of his future plans for his car, which included a new set…

Number 33

Last July 31, Stance Pilipinas / Manila Fitted held its third meet for 2016.  Established in 2009, the group has 33 gatherings to date since the first meet was held late in 2011.  These meets are very simple: a parking lot, a bunch of cars with the same passion for slammed rides. Attended by different local fitment…
