Usual Suspects - August 2009

Contributors And Unsavory Characters

Aug 1, 2009

What would the world of Super Street be without its small band of freelancing bandits? Overworked and undercompensated. Wait, that sounds like us regardless!

Henry Dekuyper
When Henry isn't photographing cars for this magazine, he moonlights as an iPhone Technician at the Santa Monica Apple Store Genius Bar. This is where he gets to mingle with customers and show off his amazing knowledge of NBA trivia, like the actual weight of "Big Baby" Davis without shoes, the year the shot clock was introduced and the size in inches of Shaq's very big schlong.

Ben OH
Ben is a professional blogger and proud owner of a '74 Pontiac Trans Am. Last year, he combined both of these passions into one very lucrative business, where he blogs about the history and future of the car he loves more than his dog. Currently, his blog's Alexa ranking is at 356,249 and is now open to selling ads for the site. Follow him on Twitter @TransAmLover69.

Taro Koki
Taro is a singer, songwriter and producer of many Top 40 hits including the gangsta' rap-techno hit "Alabama Nights" and the chart topping joint with Lil' Wayne "Baby, Baby, Luvya Girl." His latest project involves taking his talents to the big screen - screenwriting, directing and producing a sequel to "Coyote Ugly," which is slated to be a direct-to-Betamax film.

Kyoshyu Mizohata
If Mizu makes it look easy, it's because it is easy. To him, at least. Growing up with a freakishly large brain, Mizu was the first in his family to win a national spelling bee. By the age of 19, he managed to coast through college in a mere three months and invented the first three-bladed razor. Unfortunately, that was his intellectual peak and is now working for peanuts in the magazine.

Roel Concepcion
What more can we say about Roel that already hasn't been said about Kenny Chesney. Yes, he likes his Super Big Gulps in cherry flavor, votes Republican when it comes to issues that concern transgendered sea anemones and goes shirtless when playing softball. What you don't know, however, is that Roel is a bedwetting tax evader who idolizes the karate moves of Wesley Snipes. Now you know.

Scott Dukes
Scott was recently laid off from a GM plant in Detroit, leaving him unemployed, lonely and penniless. Despite his Bachelors in Nursing degree from the University of Phoenix, he was forced to move to Los Angeles and begin a career as a cashier at a self-storage depot near the airport. For extra cash, he shoots cars for this magazine.

Scott Steinberg
When Scott's not outlining the cow's genome that would lead to better milk and meat production or playing video games that start with the letter "S," he's on searching for long-lost high school classmates from his years as the lead-tuba player and straight B student at Harrisburg High in Harrisburg, PA. His next mission is to create mammary-imaging technology on video games that start with the letter "P."
