Serious Business: License Plate Frame Install with Big Mike

This little video was released today. I've already seen some funny posts from people taking things to serious, looks like the video did it's job and is completely f'ing with people minds, LOL! Dramatic/Epic music, guy in a suit working on a car, torque wrench with a long ass extension, I sure hope people aren't too "thick" to get it, LOL! Big thanks to Big Mike owning it and keeping a straight face during takes. The more I watch it the more funny it gets.

These New Civics are working on me!

These '06+ up Civic Si's are really starting to catch my attention. Between the gobs of power they can make with the stock bottom end, and the stance they can achieve I imagine these bad boys catching on more and more. The tough choice is whether to get a coupe or sedan.

Clean Little Oddy Van

I've been in search of one of these things for a few months. One of these 1st Gen. Odyssey vans would be an awesome edition for the AutoLife TV crew to roll around in or for us to move equipment around. When I mentioned doing one of these to some of the homies they instantly thought a child was on the way, HAHA, NOT! You gotta admit, if something like this pulled up in front of the elementary school in the morning, it would be damn cool.

Hot Rod+Honda

I don't think I'd ever build a Honda that looked like this, but I'd sure as hell race this thing... would you? At the rate things are going with the project cars this just might be what we have to do also...

Nigel Sylvester & Stevie Williams THE TAKEOVER TOUR

Who knows how the tour will turn out. I'd say they are off to an awesome start simply due to the two extremely influential athletes they decided o use in the promo. There is so much swag in this promo I had to post it, not to mention Nigel Sylvester has admitted being a car guy at heart.

J's Equipped CR-X

With all the chatter about the president of J's and the charges he is faces, I've decided to take a different route by simply posting a shot of a car that I really like, it happens to be equipped with some J's Racing components. I'll take one in red.

Myles Bautista and Mak-Speed

Life is a funny thing, there are ups and downs but no matter what it's important to value the life you have, as it's not permanent. One thing that is strange is meeting a person that you know all about but could only imagine meeting meet face-to-face and definitely not two of those people at the same time. Yesterday I meet an pair of import drag racing pioneers, Myles Bautista and Archie Madrazo. Both of which are guys that had a hand in paving the way for what we are doing today. I caught up to them while Myles was in the process of testing some Skunk2 parts on the shops Evo project at his new facility MAK-SPEED, in Temecula CA. I felt like a elementary school kid as they told stories about "back in the day", truly "OG" stories that many of todays enthusiasts wish they could have experienced. I had the camera running for a bit, maybe we will release some of the Anyway, be sure to go visit MAK-SPEED, support a true legend of the industry, and be on the look out because they are still on the scene.

9five Eyewear Presents: Peoples The Artist

Some fellow SD locals grinding hard on eye-wear and lifestyle. Mike Metcalf, their videographer, put this clean music video together. San Diego is such an awesome place to shoot, sucks there is not much of a television/ video production industry in the city...

Sick Icon Motorsports Video

Being that the AutoLife TV blog is a place to stay up to date on what we are doing, I rarely post others videos. But a dope video is a dope video. This one I had to watch a couple times as it was very entertaining. Oh, the wonders of having a budget... Enjoy

My boy Schneider is working on his build again, I think it might be his "Quest to Eibach" project.

Lunch time shenanigans

We hit up the "Anti-Cow" and ate chicken...
Brian spilled soda all over his shirt.
The cow wanted to hug Brian while Schni-dezzy cheered on behind me.
The cow made it a point to come over and get a piece of Brian, all the high school kids stared in confusion.
