Goodguys Meguiar’s 15th Del Mar Nationals

Words by Tim Wong


The annual Goodguys Meguiar’s Del Mar Nationals returned this past weekend for its 15th year running to fill the Del Mar Fairgrounds and the surrounding area with thousands of classic cars. From muscle cars to restomod trucks, it was an amazing sight to see. I definitely don’t find myself at classic muscle car events enough, but there’s always so much to see and this show is a prime example of the variety in this community. There was a car show, vendor booths, swap meet, and auto cross all in one event.







I’m always glad to see restomods because they possess the perfect blend of modern technology and classic car styling.





Some were more custom than others.

Formula D Long Beach 2015 Coverage…Part 1 of 2…

The Chronicles© - No Equal Since 2008 |

Another year means another Formula D season opener in Long Beach, California… I like this event, I genuinely do. Not so much for the drifting itself because I don’t really even pay attention to the competition but the overall feel of the event is great. There is always a sense of excitement in the air when Formula D hits the streets of Long Beach. This is the only drifting event allowed on a public city street and it just looks fucking awesome to see some of these machines slide around on a road that is normally occupied by pedestrians. It is all closed off of course so it is completely safe but still, even when we roll into the car show area of Formula D, it feels really cool because you get that feel of driving on a “track” even though it is in fact just a street. As always…

Formula D Long Beach 2015 Coverage…Part 2 of 2…

What’s up all, hope everyone had a good weekend. Me and a group of the guys went out to Malibu this weekend to cruise along the Pacific Coast Highway to enjoy the view. It was a fun and relaxing weekend but it’s time to get back to work. I gotta leave to Japan in exactly a week’s time so there is much prep work for me to do before I go. Autocon L.A. 2015 is also this weekend too so make sure you guys go and check that out. Today, we’re going to take a look at the second half of my Formula D Rd. 1 Long Beach coverage featuring some more vehicles from the Offset Kings Showcase, which was the car show portion of the FD event. The photos below include shots of some cars that caught my eye and also some random shots that I took for fun…

Track And Show Japan 2015 Coverage…Part 1 of 3…

The Chronicles© - No Equal Since 2008 |

Never has there been a more appropriate name for an event in all the world… The Japanese “Track And Show” event is literally just that, a track event that is also paired with a car show featuring the same cars. The “Track” portion of it isn’t like a crazy insane time attack competition or anything, it merely gives enthusiasts an opportunity to get out on the track to run their cars. The weather was pretty cold and damp that day so maybe it was better that these guys take a light-hearted approach to the whole racing side of it instead of attempting to run record-breaking times. Events like this are cool in that they allow a bigger variety of cars to get out on the track that wouldn’t otherwise be considered competitive in a real circuit race. The guys that do race often get some practice in and show car…

Sometimes I’m a builder, Victory Hardball fairing.


Building things.  Pretty things. Functional things.  Occasionally both.  Sometimes from scratch, not but usually.  Completing someone else’s idea.  Standing on another shoulders is the best way to see what they missed.

I like Victory motorcycles.   Fast, pretty, and guttural.  Here is a custom fairing I made for mine last summer.

f-front-sideNope not metal.  It’s a chop and a paint job on a stock windshield.

The chop before….


Got the shield on ebay.   Chopped it with a black and decker multitool.





Peel the tape off…




Oh and of course experiment with what you COULD have done.  Here’s my favorite.
