Who are the Private Runners?

Posted in Private Runners on 02/02/2013 by private runners

We are a FAMILY.

PVT_FAMILY

We look out for each other. We aren’t out to prove a point. We don’t care about winning or losing. We’re out just to have fun and test ourselves. We don’t talk shit, nor judge. A real enthusiast doesn’t do that. When we see an enthusiast, we see their aura. Your aura speaks for itself and shows your true self. We are ghosts, just manifesting to show you that we exist. Catch us haunting the streets.

Live like you’re already dead. Haunt the streets.

The USDM style seen on his DC2 comes from his love for the American culture. He installed EG6 hubs so he can use the 4×100 lug pattern, reflecting a common style seen here in the states; a clean Honda lowered on OEM wheels.

Tomohiro isn’t just into styling a car to make it look pretty. Before owning his DC2, he also had a B18C powered EG6 which he attended many race events with. Once a gear-head, always a gear-head!

A Visit To Garage Star

Posted in Car Shop, Life Style, Trips on 08/08/2016 by private runners

Last week, I paid a visit to my buddy Kenjo at his shop, Garage Star.
Some of you might have seen the article which Mike Garrett posted on SpeedHunters last year. Since then, I knew that when I would go back to Sacramento I had to see his new location.

gs2 gs3

Parking is very limited in his lot. Which is occupied by his employees and friends, most of the time.
First come, first serve!

gs4

Walking right in, you can’t miss the glorious wall of wheels being displayed. Some of them are for sale by the way!
(If you’re interested, visit Circuit Dreamer)

gs6gs5

All of Kenjo’s products are made in house, in the good ‘ole USA!

gs7
Looking out from inside the shop I noticed a 1976 Celica pulling up. I found out it belongs to Tom, one of the owners of Circuit Dreamer.

gs8

Man, I miss living the independent car shop life.
Til next time, Kenjo… Peace!

IF YOU LOVE AND RESPECT THE CULTURE, YOU WOULD HAVE OBTAINED PERMISSION FROM THE ORIGINAL CREATORS BEFORE MAKING MERCHANDISE FOR YOUR OWN BENEFIT.

MAKING UNAUTHENTIC COPIES WITHOUT CONSENT IS FROWNED UPON.

I HAVE NEVER SOLD ANY PRIVATE RUNNER STICKERS NOR WILL I EVER.

I am concerned

Posted in P. Runner, Thoughts on 05/16/2016 by private runners

about the world.

earth_lights_lrg

“We live in an era where our cities are armed with steel and concrete. Computers and electronics barricade our minds. It doesn’t change the fact that there exists a lot of strange phenomena, bizarre beyond reason or logic. Most folks just don’t see them. That’s because we cling to order to any tiny happiness that comes our way and we bust our humps to blind ourselves with our desires and our pleasures.

We all have our own problems we’re facing that we need to focus on…

With the race for the white house going on and all the other bullshit going on in the world such as War, (which is a global economic phenomenon) it’s hard to focus on our task and our individual role of “being what is necessary.”

It’s to the point where it will make you concerned and border line scared. This is our future on the line here. Although, we as human beings can adapt and progress, it’s the obstacles that are put in front of us that are the stress makers in life. How much bullshit can we endure before we really get angry and say “fuck this shit!” It’s really pushing me to the edge. Every form of life is precious, therefore it has value. That value should not be determined by someone who has “higher power/authority” over you. Who the fuck are they to judge? We need to rise up and let them hear our voices. That is the impact the world needs to hear and see. Stop blinding yourself and do something that benefits everyone. Be selfless. Now ask yourself, “Am I doing my daily tasks for bragging rights/popularity?” If so, that is the biggest form of selfishness. That is the epitome of a “FUCK BOY/GIRL.”

No single person can change the world, it takes the world to change the world.
