Event: The Chronicles Year 7

This past Saturday, Joey from The Chronicles held his annual meet at the Eibach Facility in Corona, CA. 2015 marked the 7th year of the website, and hundreds of people came out to show their appreciation for Joey’s work. I was headed up North that weekend, but came to Corona a bit early to say hi to everyone before I left. A lot of friends from Japan attend as they are in town for SEMA which is going on this week. I was able to get some coverage before I left around 1.

NDF_6333-EditOne of the main reasons I went out of my way to get to Corona was to see the final product of the exterior of Yuta’s Civic.  He’s been working really hard to get the car ready for Super Lap (unfortunately the engine won’t be ready in time), and the car has gone through quite the transformation (as you can see in the below pictures).

NDF_6353-EditAside from Yuta’s Civic, however, there was a wide array of great cars (as is the norm at Joey’s meet).  This year was no exception.

NDF_6380-EditI think this might have been my favorite vehicle in the lot haha I’ve really been wanting a Tacoma recently to replace my tired BMW daily.

NDF_6391-EditFor the majority of the morning I spent there, I was laying on the ground inside Eibach’s garage with Amir and Yuta.  For the end of October, temps were still lingering around 90 degrees and that’s just not acceptable.  Amir wanted me to get a shot of his Tom’s tan…

NDF_6392-EditThe awards that Joey had made were really cool.

NDF_6394-EditAmir brought out his new daily; the DC5 that he built behind closed doors of social media.  He surprised a lot of people – came out great.
