StripLot W108

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on April 23, 2011 by ekhatch

This one just slaps you right in the face when you first see it, and it’s proven to be one of those cars that tend to people at odds with each other. They either love everything about it or think the car has been forever ruined and is tacky as hell. I dunno man, I absolutely love it, it looks like a ton of planning and work went into it, somebody definantly had a vision when they took on this project. But that’s not to say I wouldn’t love it if it was olive drab with chrome blazin though. What I especially love are the original alloys being made into 3 piece stunners, I’ve only seen this on a couple other cars, that brown wagovan with the RT AWD rebarreled steelies, and the dude who made 3 piece Ronal Bears come to mind, not that Bears are OEM but making a one piece alloy into a three piece blows my mind. Maybe that’s gonna be the next big thing. Rare JDM was and still is huge, offset with custom hardware and lips exploded a couple years ago, the powder coaters and dippers have stepped up their game, maybe one-off wheels like these are the next step.

Carbon Revolution CR-9

There have been some concept carbon wheels, and some wheels with carbon lips, but I think this is the first real production 100% carbon 1 piece wheel. For now you’ll have to buy a 2010 SSC Ultima Aero to get a set.

Equip 02s : Recovered

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on March 3, 2010 by ekhatch

First and foremost, Dennis’ wheels are back in his possession. I learned quite a bit over the last 48 hours; 1. there are some incredibly cool people out there, selfless enough to take time out of thier day to help a complete stranger, willing to stand up and do the right thing just for the sake of doing the right thing. 2. there is one really shady crew operating out of San Jose, right now I can’t link them to this particular incident, but if you’re in the area and you got jacked give me a shout and I can give you a heads up on where to start looking. Stop snitchin? Fuck that, I’ll keep snitchin til every fucking thief in the scene is hanging from a rope. 3. Karma. I don’t think for one minute that it’s a coincidence that one of the most generous supporters of The Melissa Project received this much help and got his gear back so fast.

The reward, I can’t thank everyone who emailed enough, I wish I could send everyone who sent the Craigslist ad $100 because you deserve that and a whole lot more. The first person who alerted Dennis to the ad and set up the fake buy was offered the reward. If we can tie the offender to the crew I was informed about there will be another reward given, as you can imagine it’s been an eventful day and I don’t have all the details yet.

If you take anything away from this I hope it’s that when we all band together we can get shit done. Yea, thieves will keep stealing and a lot of cars will never be recovered, but don’t give up, reach out and you might be surprised who answers the call.
