Severed Ties So Cal Show 2011

It was a blazing hot Saturday in August when Severed Ties started what I hope will be a new show to the lacking So Cal show line up. When I say blazing, I mean it too. It wasn't Texas ridiculous hot, but it was hot enough.

When I first pulled up to the show grounds I loved it. It had the old school Cali vibe that takes you way back to when MiniTruckin' was a weekly thing here in So Cal. Not only was it centrally located in So Cal but the park was great. It had a swimming pool and tons of playgrounds for the kids. Being a dad this is great, and any show in a park beats a parking lot show any day. The show wasn't over capacity but it was great for a first year show. The amount of quality was high and all the clubs that you would expect to see in So Cal were in attendance.

Their was a particularly strong showing of Negative Camber and I saw lots of old faces. It was also great to see so many "Tito" shirts at the show. Jeff Davy from Devious Customs had Courtney's truck at the show and it looked great. He's doing an awesome job with it. I heard they worked on it all night and hadn't even slept yet.

The trophies at this show were some of the best ones id seen yet. They were really nice plaques and the best of trophies were cut out of metal and placed on really nice stands. I'm glad they weren't those shitty plastic ones that were used to seeing. A nice plaque will go up on the wall to be admired. A big plastic gold thing just ends up in the garage or a trash can.

It was a great show, a great turn-out and an even more amazing Atmosphere. I look forward to next year where hopefully I'll have a truck to bring of my own. Thanks to the Severed Ties guys for adding a show in So Cal. If it's one thing we need here in So Cal it's more shows to get people motivated back into the garage to build some kick-ass minitrucks.

The most interesting blog in the world!!! Okay, maybe not.

Day 2 of Juicing

Well it's mid-day of day two, and so far I don't feel any different. I do however feel slightly hungry but I haven't had any water today. I did however have a tall cup of veggie juice. I should be on my second cup but I slept in today. My juice today consists of:
- papaya
- lemon
- cucumber
- pear
- parsley
- spinach
- green apple
- ginger root

I saw this recipe on you tube, and out of the two recipes I've tried it's the best so far. I did get a juice at Juice It Up yesterday that was decent but it had way too much Ginger Root. The damn drink was spicy, in a bad way.

I have one more pre-made juice that Melissa and I made last night. It's the same one from yesterday and has a much stronger veggie taste.

10 day Juice Fast!!!

It's time to reboot this body of mine. So I have decided to eat (or should I say drink) nothing but juice for 10 days. It basically means that ill be in a pretty shitty mood for the next few days.

Today I had a juice made with Kale, cucumber, apple, celery, ginger root and a pice of lemon. It wasn't great, but it wasn't soo bad that I couldn't put it down either. Wish me luck and we'll see where it goes from here.

Not my juice, but mine looked very similar to this.

Things just aren't the same, wah wah wah......

"Remember when we used to meet up and cruise together, remember when we rolled our trucks and showed them off not our attitudes, remember when we would go to a cruise night, share a coke and a burger and talk about good times. Remember when it wasn't about the trophies or the BS just hanging out with your boys!"


If you find yourself bitching about the way things were, then maybe you should do something about it instead of sitting behind the computer talking about the way it used to be. Minitruckin is still good, people are still building trucks for themselves, if you don't see this then you're hanging out with the wrong people. I rolled to a cruise night with about ten No Regrets So Cal members last night and it was just like the old days.....JUST SAYING!!!!!!!

Granted I know at some of the big shows, you have a handful of ding dongs fucking it up. But good people still exist, So if you don't want to be a part of this scene, C YA!!! But please don't write shit like "I used to be a part of this, but now it sucks, blah blah blah." In ten years from now, the kids from today are going to bitch about the way things were. People change, Minitruckin' has evolved. You have to evolve with it, or move on please. But don't bring us down with you.
