Nice representation of Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen here in LA. @petersenmuseum really delivered with the Porsche exhibit... all cars were awesome but this purple mystery machine was my favorite. Would daily drive.
Cars I need in my life part 2. Coincidentally I shared a lot of car preferences with my dad- he owned a Scout, Challenger, GTI's, Kubelwagen, among many other cool cars. He was all into VW's and Mopars. Never had the chance to do the father and son Challenger project with him, so maybe I'll take that on with my kids, though I'm more of a Charger guy.
Got up early to meet up with my brother from another mother @shift247 at Eagle Rock. Grazed the crusty parts at the swap, then had a veggie burger at Cindy's on Colorado. Got hung up on a few steep driveways but otherwise a fast and fun drive there and back. Thanks for the 510 チンスポ @topher88 !
6:30 am, 38F, perfect #neokaido driving weather. On my way to the @pelicanparts meet, enjoying the empty streets. It was a chore to get it started this morning, us angelenos are not used to anything below 55F #KAIDOHOUSE
Had to visit my big bro @jimwhitsett at his new shop @performancebikesantamonica ! Jim and I worked together over 20 years ago and it was him that pushed me to pursue a design career. He is one of the coolest and influential people I've ever met, and has always looked out for me. If you're in the Santa Monica area and need a bike ( @sebikes Big Ripper perhaps?) visit him and tell him I sent you- he will set you up! If you ride, be sure to give the shop IG a follow.
Here's a car in the garage I haven't seen in a while a Honda Type R concept I designed back in 2003 at my internship at Honda R&D. Smaller than a Civic, it has a tilt hood, door buttons on the roof, and the unmistakable Champ white paint in satin finish. The side marker also serves as the button to pop the hood. This particular model is 1/4 scale ((HW car by rear tire for ref) and made of solid rennshape, weighs 200 lbs at least! It's made a few trips to Honda and back and has since lost a few parts, which I'll remake over time. Great memories as I clean this up for display in my garage. #KAIDOHOUSE#Honda#typeR
