April 2014 Initial Timing - NorCal Hotness

Charles Trieu
Mar 3, 2014

Living in Southern California, I get a lot of people (usually from other parts of the country) telling me that I live in the hotbed of the car scene. Los Angeles is definitely a commuter city. Plus, with all of our major players like Toyota, Honda, Mazda, and (until a few years ago) Nissan being headquartered here, it makes things that much easier for us SoCal peeps.

But if there's one other part of country that has always been at our heels, or possibly just as forefront as us, it's our West Coast brethren in NorCal. If you don't live on the West Coast you wouldn't know, but NorCal and SoCal residents love to hate each other. Bickering, complaining, and comparing the two gets really old.

Since the resurgence of the import scene in the early '90s NorCal has been building some of the coolest stuff on earth. Names like Dynamic, R Crew, Skunkworks, Speed Element, Blox, ATS Garage, Weksos, and Fatlace have all been putting in work and changing the industry for years.

It really doesn't just stop at the cars either. From photographers to models, our magazine has been filled with more content from NorCal than that of any other nonlocal place.

This issue is no different. On the cover is Anthony Heng's Subaru from San Jose. Also featured in this issue is Jeffery Lu's 240SX out of San Francisco. Our NorCal resident freelance photographer Patrick Lauder shot both cars. And rounding out the Bay Area team, our model this month is Trinity Dang. SF, we love you and you always do us right. Thanks again.

As always feel free to give us your input,

If this Toyota Aristo looks familiar to you, it's probably because the previous owner was Manabu "MAX" Orido.
