It's been five months since we lost Tyler. There are times when it feels like years have passed and it flips and it seems like just yesterday. Technically he passed on 8/7 but Tyler was a car guy so it was the night of 8/6 and I think he would like that.

Saw this video pop up today (and left a similar comment on YT), but really had a full-circle moment when watching it (whole video is cool there's a small detail around 18:11 to see what I'm talking about): https://youtu.be/YgCZTUwaL0A?si=eGUguYMn3Uj3dhvJ&t=1091

It's such a cool feeling to see Koru parts on builds of this quality in Japan (mind you, it's not NOB or Orido's actual vehicles, but it's an S14 at N-Stage Yokohama which seems to do builds for NOB). Not sure who owns it, but it's clearly super nicely done and it's so neat to me that 20 years after oogling over these drivers/cars in person for the FOERST time in LA, guys in the part of the world that influenced us so much are running parts that Tyler developed.

Pretty dang awesome <3.

I saw Larry Chen had posted pictures either yesterday or today of that car! I love that he reached all the way to Japan with his style and parts!

YOOOOOOOOO.

This made my day seeing this. Not only seeing how far away from home those parts are... but also hearing Larry's reaction to seeing them.
This is amazing and I love this SO MUCH!!!!
