Karl Basa: Elite Feature COMING SOON!!

The beginning of December is nearing and that usually means that a Skunk2 Featured Elite video release might be right around the corner. Some may remember this shot of Karl and I pushing his car around the parking lot, matter of fact is was just before Nisei Week. It looks like December might be Karl's month (I could be wrong), be on the look out for his "Elite Feature", I sense it's release being VERY near. On a side note, word on the street is that this privateer racer is switching up his engine set-up.... hmmm could it be another B, an H... or maybe it's a K! What ever it is I'm sure it will be making booty clinching power. One thing I do know is that I'm pretty happy with the edit, I really feel like I "put my foot" into this one, basically meaning I think it's a pretty entertaining edit. I have a feeling folks might have to watch it a few times just to see how intense some of the cuts are. For those that support/live the "AutoLife" when it comes out do me a favor and embed or share it, I know most of you are internet/ forum whores so take a moment and leave it a couple places, lol!

Access Granted: Inside the Skunk2 Workshop

I worked on the video over the last couple weeks. The Skunk2 Familia is really making efforts to be extremely transparent with the enthusiast's. I have no reason to hate on ANY company, but I can say that it is really cool to see them doing things like this, not to mention awesome to be a part of it. Videos like this are a true test testament to there customer service and place in the "game". I don't know of many other parts companies that are opening up to the customers the same as Skunk2. I wonder what the haters will have to say to these gestures... Enjoy and be on the look out for more of these video segments.

Sir Mix-A-Lot "Carz"

Sir Mix-A-Lot is clearly living the "AutoLife". From "Baby Got Back" to this new track "Carz", it seem like the guy still has "it". I was initially expecting to turn the video off after about 30 seconds, but I have to admit, there is something about this video that kept me watching. You be the judge.

AutoFashion VIP Meet 2010

It was a really nice Sunday, so I decided not to be a flake and rolled to the AutoFasion VIP Festival. I washed the "shit box" just so I didn't look like a complete lame rolling up in my 20 year old Wagovan, which doesn't really matter being that I was going to a FREAK'N VIP gathering. I didn't shoot any video, because I just wanted to hang out, plus I expected 358403 other cat's to be lurking around "covering" the event...

Last year most of the activity was in the AutoFashion parking lot, this year it was MASSIVE, kinda made me wonder if the last years AutoLife TV video coverage helped at

This Previa van was ILL!

When I rolled up I was behind the old school Skyline, this was a clue that I was about to have my self esteem shart'ed on... thing is DOPE! I actually got some shots of it at the 5&aDime Motor Union

... take a wild guess at to who this belongs to.

Ruckus scooters were on the scene. I still want one, lol

This is the interior of an Odyssey van...

I wasn't kidding... I've actually been trying to follow this build, awesome people mover!

SEMA 2010 Day Trip

Day Trip to SEMA with Skunk2 from Brandon Mc. (aka Lost IS BLaCK) on Vimeo.

I have a feeling a lot of people think we might be a little nuts, especially after we rolled to SEMA for just one day. I left San Diego around 4:45 in the morning to meet up with the rest of the fellas. 4 hours of car conversation or snoring coming from the back seat. Many may not take pride in "hitting it and quitting it" but that is exactly what we did to SEMA... my Vans Chukkas put a hurting on my feet, LOL! It was good meeting a lot of new people, along with a bunch of folks I have heard of but never had the pleasure of meeting, one of my favorites being Nalani Whatley, the other bunch coming from the S3 Magazine camp. I felt no need to post "coverage photos" as everybody and their mom claimed to be "media". I rolled in ready to "run and gun" and got NO RESPECT from some of the personnel running company booths. I tried to get a shot of some of Weld's new drag wheels and one of the guys running the booth looked at me like I was worth less than the dirt on the bottom of his "Payless" shoes... then didn't want to move so I could get a shot of the wheels hanging on the wall... maybe it's because I didn't have a 5d or a 7d in my hand, or a slider rig with three additional people to run it, at events like SEMA you really shouldn't disrespect anyone, but it really seemed to have an "I'm better than you vibe" at times, unless I was standing shoulder to shoulder with people I knew, then it was all HOOD, LOL!

Arn Reyes Skunk2 Elite Feature

A few months back I posted some behind the scenes shots of my shooting Arn's Integra inside the Skunk2 warehouse. Today the video was released on Skunk2's website. If you ever get a chance to meet Arn you'll probably be thrown by his genuine humble attitude and mellow behavior, don't worry he's not messing with you, he really is a chill cat, however don't take his kindness for weakness, Arn is a "G". I'm sure this won't be the last you see if Mr. Reyes, as he has been known to own up to 6-7 cars at a time. I'm very excited I got to shoot the car on video and I think the edit came out pretty well...
