Well I’m alive. Haha. What a freakin weekend! I don’t even know where to start. Here’s some math for the people that did the road trip with me from Jersey…we spend a total of 38 hours in those bucket seats over the weekend. 38!!!!!! Haha. But in all seriousness it was a weekend I will never forget. I personally met so many people and saw an insane amount of sick cars. The trip was hell, but it was well worth it with all the friendships started and love True Driving/SNTRL/Unique Auto got down south. At the end of the day it’s all about the community, and that is worth the endless hours of driving.
It all started in New Jersey at the Unique Auto headquarters at around 6am friday morning. And the rest is history! To give my readers an idea of what the “hell” I’m talking about is…no heat, no A/C, fixed back bucket seats, no radio, gutted interior, aftermarket exhaust, and many, many more comforts we all take advantage of, along with endless amounts of breakdowns. It was as hot as 85 in Georgia and as cold as 38 on the way back home. I rode shotgun with Kevin’s beautiful Laguna Seca blue EK hatch for the trip. It is a gorgeously built car, but definitely isn’t built for long, long road trips, haha. Because I rode with him I didn’t get any rolling shots of the car, but there will be plenty more opportunities. Anyways on to the trip…
All taped up and ready for the road to ATL! These seriously are as good as your going to get in the EK game in the northeast.
Stop 1 of 144534985345913985797523984723984723984. Seriously…
Stop 2 of 144534985345913985797523984723984723984. Doing some adjustment on the camber. This setup isn’t for the faint of heart!
Rollin rollin rollin.
And this is where the problems began! lol
It’s all about the fitment!
We all got very familiar with the side of the road.
More rolling shots.
At this point we needed to make a more permanent repair to Kevin’s car, so we decided to take a detour and drive to UA member Chris’ house, fix the car and keep rolling with them.
Ray also decided to roll his fenders a tad more.
Ah man! Mr. Parker Made and his immaculate REAL Civic Type R. You wouldn’t believe how many people didn’t believe it was real. Why the hate??
A few hours pass and we FINALLY hit the road again with Chris, Josh, and a couple other guys. Sorry I’m horrible with names!
I don’t know if you remember, but we left at 8am friday morning, as you can see it’s now dark again. Yep, this was about 10pm friday and we still have 10 hours to go!! lmao
That was also when Chris figured out the problem with Kevin’s car. FINALLY!
I think after this shot, I either drove or knocked out, cause the pictures ended. I really can’t believe at that point we were on the road for about 20 hours.
I think I’ll end part one here. This was all of friday for me. A long freakin day!!!!!
