We were personally invited by Chrysler to attend their press release of their new 2021 Pacifica! This was actually the first time we attended a press release with the Chrysler brand in relation to a new or updated version of their top selling minivan. Compared to the first generation Pacifica, we only had the chance to attend their press release when it was our build in collaboration with them was released at the LA auto show...

Morris had his Previa displayed at Otakon in DC. It was to promote Equilibrium USG.

The Van really looks good and if you check out Equilibrium gear, it's pretty damn cool!!!

When I started to see some of the VK hashtags coming from Russia, I was kinda interested to see what they had to offer. 

1. Russia has a ton of Japanese cars imported. 

2. I wanted to know if it was just van owners hashtagging VK or were they actually members/chapter. 

In all honesty, I was happy to see a chapter in Russia. I think they can offer a different perspective on tuning.

I asked Aleksandar for some pictures and he did no...

Van owners and tuners I feel are two different mindsets of course with some intersectionality. 

When I saw James L and Nick S. post pictures of a meet up they had with a few others, I wanted them to know it didn't go unnoticed and to bring something like this together was pretty cool.

The folks that met up: Sherman, Ronny, Dickson, Nick, Mark, Mario and James.

VK has pockets of owners in many regions and sometimes it won't be as...

Back in April, Ben Baller, who is a DJ, Producer, actor and jeweler to celebrities reached to Paul saying he wanted to hook up his Pacifica.

Paul, who has spearheaded the Pacifica campaign through VANKulture definitely helped out! 

" BEN BALLER DID THE VAN!

It was a busy few months.  In May, I was in LA (unfortunately didn't meet up with VK SoCal), then Japan for 2 weeks (met with Taguchi-san) and shortly after, I would go to Vancouver BC (which I met with the brothers out that way). 

Going to Japan, I often times see vans. But vans being tuned and built, I like to see more! 

One night in Takamatsu, I was walking around the Sunport area and a Toyota Hiace drove past. The Hiace...

Felix (the thot) called me the other week and we talked about how VK represented on the East Coast, but also a pretty significant step for Vans in general - a Van category!

Felix had a conversation with Jay M. (owner/promoter of Tuner Evolution) about having a van section. Vans have never had their own segment in many of the US shows. It is always grouped with other vehicles such as SUVs, Wagons and Boxes. 

Once it was official,...

After a busy 2018, it was the end of the year meeting. I was hoping to do more with VK this year, such as HIN and NorCal BBQ, but I was sick both times. 

I was able to go to this meeting and it was awesome. Tons of great vans, but also a good shop/resource for any car/van enthusiasts. 

Here are the pictures at DIY or Die and the meeting spot not to far.
