My buddy Chad Copeland brought his wild Datsun 620 over last night for some assistance putting some war-inspired shark graphics on the truck. It had been a while since I had done any vinyl work, but it was definitely a fun install. Each side was in 3 separate layers, so it took a little while to get it all on there. I feel like I want the eye to be larger, and lower in relation to the mouth, but overall… I think it turned out awesome!

I just stumbled on this old Jtuned snap from FD Atlanta in 2005. This was a big day, as it was the first time I would qualify to drive in the professional arena – and what better place to do it, than on my home turf in front of friends and family. It is crazy to think how insanely stock the car was. It has come a LONG way since then. I suppose I have likely evolved as a driver as well.
This was a very memorable day for me. Drifting was fun, and still so pure. The professional element was all new and exciting.
Good times indeed.
I am behind the times, I know… I still do not have an Xbox 360, which means I am also not privvy all the cool stuff in Forza Motorsport 3. My buddy Marlow showed me this replica of my car in it\’s 2006 livery with Batlground on the door. If you recall, Casey (cobratuner) made an amazing replica of my car in it\’s 2007 livery for Forza 2. I think this version of the car was made by \”AoG | Kevbo\” on the forzamotorsport.net forum. I\’m definitely flattered to see people take the time to make my car\’s likeness. It is really, really awesome, so THANK YOU!!!
Sit back, crank your speakers, and prepare your life to become the equivalent of a Maxell commercial, as the automotive-filmmaker\’s dream team that is Will Roegge and Joshua Herron announce \”Keep Drifting Fun.\”
This will be their first feature-length production about grassroots drifting in America. Over the course of this year, the duo will be taking to the streets of the U.S.A., living out of a van, eating mostly peanut butter. For obvious reasons (cough Slide America), I am insanely excited to see this come to fruition. It has been nearly four years since we shot Slide America, and as far as I\’m concerned… it\’s about damn time we get another dose of where grassroots drifting in America is REALLY at, in a current timeframe.
In the meantime, enjoy this section of the video, from our members-only drift event in Nashville… And remember…
KEEP DRIFTING FUN.
