Goodwin Racing Meet, January 25th, 2020

On Saturday several of us got up super early and gathered at Krazy Eddie’s Donuts & Bagels in Laguna Hills for some morning refreshments and catching up before driving down to San Diego. It was a cold, dark and super foggy morning. I was late because I blew my tail lamp fuse and was driving super cautious because I didn’t …

Final Drive Of 2019

The first drive of this year, I held the meet up at Kirari West Bakeshop in Redondo Beach. We had a blast and it was very memorable. And what better way to send off 2019 with one more drive at where it all started. Our friend Jeo (whom also shot all of these awesome photos) was back from the Navy, …

Public Enemy – Elias Ramirez’ 1993 Mazda Miata LE

What crosses my mind when I look at Elias Ramirez’ Pitcrew faced roadster is the movie “Public Enemies” with Johnny Depp. There is just something so old school gangster with his car. The Karmann Ghia inspired front end made by Pitcrew Racing, Japan, takes you back to a different time. A time when suit-and-tie gangsters ruled the streets of LA …

The Shinjuku Racer – Ippei Suzuki’s 1993 Miata

There are many ways to build a Miata. But the one thing that is constant: no matter what you do, they are fun to drive. One can keep them stock, modify them for street cruising, build them for canyon carving, track or drifting, there are no words to describe how versatile these little roadsters are. They are extremely capable, and …

The Outlaw Roadster – Pete Royea’s 1990 Mazda Miata

Pop-pop! Pop! Whew. Pop-pop! Sounds of gun shots and a bullet howling and whistling past you. Thinking back, one can only be frightened and shaken up. This is how it went down when Nico and I were shooting (no pun intended) Pete Royea’s 1990 Miata. I did not know that one of the locations I scouted the day before was …
