bandwidth check! 100mbs coming at you…

I finally got a day where I could just lay around and watch Moto GP
and catch up with some old friends, so I figured why not catch up with
my old friends here. Wassup all my old pals Karsten, UK Phil, Johnny,
Slappy, Freddy, Banpei, Nick and CrazuKnights, Rolling Republic and
the whole crew at Club xB. I haven’t forgotten about y’all, you guys
saved my friends life!
I’m just gonna ramble about random stuff I’ve run across lately,
nothing that hasn’t already been on the forums or other blogs, that
wouldn’t be very Hatch Life of me now would it?
First today started with this, the single craziest thing I’ve ever seen, seriously click it

WTF DUDE come on over!!!
seriously how crazy is that?
I wonder what gave me away

Then my buddy Cliff blew my mind

Pretty crazy day so far.

I had a little get together a while ago, unfortunately it wasn’t long
before the facilities were rendered temporarily out of service. Here’s
a little tip from me to you; if you remove the blood BEFORE calling a
plumber, you will avoid the extra $250 biohazard disposal fee.

So on with the car porn….
Couple of awesome builds I’ve ran across lately

As for my own build, nothing new to report except new wheels for the
red car. I was realllllly close to getting Axis Sakuras, as seen on
Greg’s kick ass xB next to the always fresh Dennis Dizzle

but went with Stance Emotions, they feel lighter than my Rota HM3s
despite being an inch wider, maybe it’s just me. Gonna have to roll the rears.

Got fabulous service and pricing from Element Wheels

Speaking of xBs bB Squad has been holding it down

this one more than any other one I’ve seen makes me want to get one someday

So what else, I’ve decided if I ever have an S13 coupe it will
definately get flares rather than over fenders

and that box flares on Foxbodies will always be sexy

and that my next mod will definately be rear air horns

But I’m seriously thinking about a Miata, I’ve lost a lot of weight
over the past year and can now get in them real comfy

But Lord help me I’ve kinda been diggin on Yugos lately

Been thinking about how our buddy Jason’s cars fit into the whole “stance” thing

Also been wondering why you don’t see more EL/Domani fronted hatches,
they’ve got a really interesting look

I always love to see people having fun with random body panels

I’ve decided these are my two favorite e-famous cars to date, Mike and Yuta

and that this is my personal favorite EG to date, I mean I am seriously fucking infatuated with it.

Speaking of which some great new blogs have popped up be sure to check
some of my favs Kyusha Kai and Private Runners

Best article of the year goes to…

Some gorgeous Jaguar renderings I ran across a while back

Some more cool random stuff

Beefy Stance!

I will never get tired of tripodding

I am LOVING this whole USDM phenomena, and the fact that it has
completed another circle! I think the Japanese are better at copying
us than we are at copying them.

full circle!

Hopefully we’ll see some more Odyssey love come out of it

Temple Racing/Osaka JDM always running hard

Akebono always stylish

And while everyone was searching for the perfect stance, these two
dudes, you know who they are, quietly slipped under the radar as they
perfected the whole “Form Follows Function” philosophy. True JDM circuit bred EKs.

I also love seeing pure Euro style applied to japanese cars

This is pretty much exactly what my backyard would look like if I won
the lottery

The engine bay war continues to escalate almost as rapidly as the
stance war, resulting in some magnificent fabrication

I still have a lot of respect for the “I don’t give a fuck” swagger of some cars

Ohio always reppin’

Speaking of Ohio cars I spotted this on one of my fav sites Just a Car
Geek
and instantly recognized it as the “mystery car” I grew up down
the street from. Turns out it’s a one off built by some excentric
wierd crazy genius hermit dude. Check out the whole story

While we’re getting all personal here, and for the curious types, yes I am still madly in love with Miranda Lambert and Ice Road Trucker Lisa Kelly

I’ve been getting not so gentle urges to acquire a Midori at some point

This rendering caught my eye the other day

Cool little MKI

Viscious EK

I would so love to clean this up and hang it on my living room wall

I love some of the great more creatively free and fun builds lately

and some builds you just gotta wonder how the owners are still alive

I’m usually not huge on newer Preludes but man these two are just killing it

Killer sedan

Amazing Supra

When was the last time you saw a nice contemporary looking SVX?

this is just nuts

God Bless the Bosozoku

I was looking for this picture of House grafitti and found a pic of my
best friend Julie, and also a perfect representation of what it’s like
to be a car enthusiast in Ohio in December

and even one of the infamous Super Duke

So here it is, what are the odds that I’m such a fan of grafitti and
House? This is awesome

Alright, til next time kids

Around 1995 or 96 I was dating this girl named Kim. Kim was a genuine sweet heart, full blooded italian, and had possibly the greatest, hugest breasts God in his divine wisdom ever endowed a female with. We had some great times together, I especially remember watching new X-Files episodes with her on Sunday nights. But there was a price to pay, she drove a baby blue Ford Festiva. Man did I hate riding around in that thing, I mean hated it. But I was young, kind of arrogant, and not too bright back then, I was in my full DSM snob phase. And in much the same way I didn’t fully appreciate a girl like Kim at the time, I didn’t appreciate the simple utilitarian nature of her Festiva. Seeing this one, looking like it’s getting ready to go out for an autocross run I must say, I like it, I’d rock it. Thinking back about Kim, sometimes I think, I had it, I blew it.
