Furukawa Taku's Speed

I was first put on to Furukawa by Professor Jonathan Hall at UC Irvine. The first time I saw Coffee Break, my mind was blown. Too ill. Now if I can just find a copy...

I know you must feel the same way I do right about now. It's a feeling that can only be expressed through LA Looks hair gel and MTX speakers in a Tapioca Express parking lot. It's VTEC, and it's kicking in, yo.

The fourth installment of the glorious Fast and the Furious series, the creatively dubbed Fast and Furious, comes out this week. While I'm very partial to Tokyo Drift, I'm excited to see what kind of classic lines Justin Lin will get out of Vin Diesel this time around.

Naturally, I must post a few sweet JDM pics and an epic drifting clip, courtesy of Mr. Kevin Smith.

Cool & Blue Wave Sharp!

This doesn't touch the Leilow Blog, but I did find a pretty rad vintage item while cleaning out my closet earlier.

Orix Blue Wave Ichiro cap from the 1990s. The Blue Wave eventually merged with the Kintetsu Buffaloes, and are now known as the Orix Buffaloes.
