Joey Did a Thing

by Michael Chandler

I had Monday off, which meant I was hanging out in my sweatpants.  It was another mellow, relaxing day when Joey informed me that he did a thing.  I asked for clarification, and he elected to come show me his thing.  Preparing for anything, I put on real pants and grabbed all of my cameras.

And it is quite the thing, as you can see in the video.  But there were some things that didn’t make it into the video.  Awesome, fun things.  

If you remember his old LS400, then you know this thing is destined to get some neck pillows, knots hanging from the rear view mirror, and other VIP bits.  One thing this bad boy won’d need are curtains, because it has these shade dealies on the rear windows!  It also has one on the rear window, but the motor is a bit tired so it needed some help rising.

Those, along with those DVD headrests, will make his naps in the backseat much more enjoyable.  Anyway, here are some glory shots of his Q45 in a church parking lot!

Do you need to be deep in that VIP life, but also need to haul around kids, groceries, and other whatnot?  Well as the fine folks over at VANkulture have shown, vans can be gangster as hell.  And one such gangster van showed up to ISS.

This Honda Odyssey was sporting some Junction Produce neck pads for the driver and passenger, and a Recaro baby seat for… well, I’m assuming a baby.  Hanging from the wide mirror is a Tsuna know, and hanging from the OE rear view mirror is a Fusa knot.  Inside is some serious JDM hotness, but what about the outside?

Mmmm!  A set of WEDS Kranze LXZ wheels set off the exterior.  You don’t have to roll in a Lexus or an Infiniti to be VIP, sometimes you just need a van and a desire to let your inner gangster out.

VIP Acura RL: It’s not a Mercedes

by Michael Chandler

“Ballin’ on a Budget” is kind of a joke. You can’t really be ballin’ AND be on a budget, the two are mutually exclusive. Well, at least they were before this RL showed up. (more…)
