The cars we’re parked, cleaned up with care.
In hopes that the drift season soon would be here.. Continue reading

OC Drift meet #5 (PARTY AT RPM!)

So once again Saturday night comes around, and I pack up the bag to head out to my weekly meet.

Rhys Millen Racing shop tour 9/13/11

So I’ve known Rhys and some of his team for a while now, and once I got my camera you know I had to get a shop tour for you guys.


I think I’m in the right spot!!


Tour bus was empty, getting cleaned and re-stocked for Irwindale.


The almighty Gen Coupe drift machine, getting a fresh engine rebuild for practicing.


One of the many piles of spare parts laying around.


One of the 2 2012 Hyundai Velosters that are being built for SEMA 2011, comes with a like 30 point rollcage! :O


Rhys Millens Rally Veloster, recently overhauled!


His father Rod Millens Rally Veloster, being overhauled! (It’s a family affair)


I walk into his front office, and now we all know why they call him Rhys ‘Mad Skills’ Millen


Stopped by the engine room, there are about 7 more engines that aren’t in the shot. The main one is going in the Drift Genesis.


GYMKHANA!


The Pikes Peak record breaking bad boy was there today, I guess i got lucky!! :D


It looks so mean!!!


The 3rd building on his location is basically USA Rally HQ! Here we see Gronholms focus


Tanner parked his trailer there, but took the keys with him so I couldn’t see inside.


The last building (where my good friend AJ works as the lead designer) is also a car and parts storage for his toys.


Here’s the old Pontiac drift car! for memories :)


Mazda RX-3 running and RHD just sitting there :(


Gotta have the trophy truck for those traffic jams!


Wide shot of the storage cars and some of the parts


300+ HP ‘Parts getter’ Genesis, and more parts.


It’s always nice to leave with some #Swag!!

Anyways, I’ll be back for another photo tour once they finish their other buildings.
