Gene Siepka’s Nissan 370z Super Street Feature

Congrats to our friend Gene for yet another magazine feature! People always wonder how they can get into a magazine. It’s a simple formula- Build a great car and expect the recognition. Although Gene’s issue of Super Street has since passed, the full article and feature is available here. I decided to upload some of the images here on JDMC; because for some odd reason, the quality looks a bit compromised on the Super Street website. Enjoy!

New for this season is the unisex Option style shirt in black and white, or full color. 100% cotton and extremely comfortable. Nice detail work such as a woven tag on the sleeve and printed tag on the inside.

The joggers are guaranteed to be one of the most comfortable pair of pants you’ll ever own! Features a zippered pocket in the rear with a woven label. Front features our classic JDMC logo embroidered onto the left leg. Below are some high res photos. Click HERE to order from our store.

Offset Kings / Gridlife 2016

Now that the weekend is finally over, I wanted to post some photos from Offset Kings/Gridlife.  This was the 4th year that JDMC has collaborated with Fatlace to bring you Offset Kings Chicago. Despite the holiday weekend, attendance and show participation was amazing! Teaming up with Gridlife allowed us to bring the event to the Autobahn Country Club. Most show-goers were thrilled to go to a car show with the backdrop of live racing.  I’ll have more pics posted later this week, but here are some teasers for now.
