Truck Art Utamaro Shop
YouTube’r Steve POV recently went to visit Utamaro Shop:
He wasn’t kidding how it is like a Super Autobacs for Dekotora Trucks.
It would be dope to build a Dekotora truck… Picture the Runners pullin’ up to a function in these bad boys!!
Shit, we might even fuck around and make a video like Rich Chigga!!! LOL
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.
Parking is very limited in his lot. Which is occupied by his employees and friends, most of the time.
First come, first serve!
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)
All of Kenjo’s products are made in house, in the good ‘ole USA!
Man, I miss living the independent car shop life.
Til next time, Kenjo… Peace!
This photographer is dope. His name is Lukasz Kazimierz.
It’s been awhile since a photo really grabbed me and made me feel as if I was actually there to view the cityscape. Just like in the photographs.
After looking into his work and watching his mini documentary video, he described how I feel about street photography. But photography aside, it’s also how I feel about the streets itself.
“I’m a passive observer, I’m not trying to force a story or force a narrative, this is what it is.”
My eyes are the lenses that I use to capture moments in time.
In the track Respiration, Mos Def says, “I can feel the city breathing…”
The streets speak for itself. When I used to roam the streets, I met all walks of life. I kicked it with the best and I kicked it with the worst. I met the good, the bad, the lonely, the dangerous, you name it. At times I felt my life might be on the line. The streets are mundane but if you dissect it, there is beauty within it. The night has a myriad of different faces. Some are alive, some are not… But that depends on what your definition of being “alive” is. When you are alone in the early AM hours, you notice the city is alive. Car culture aside, that is what PVT Runner’s are about. This is our foundation.

Meet the Geeky Lurv
“What is a Geeky LURV you ask? Used to be a phrase I used to use, but I realized there’s more too it. Geeky LURV is all about geeking out about what you are passionate for. Geeking out for what you LURV. Do what you love to do, and do it the way you like to do it.” – Geeky LURV
