Amusing Photography...

My compulsion towards the parts of the Japanese Domestic Market is not based on a personal assessment of performance superiority. It is about design, quality, and attention to detail. Likely my biggest obsession of the industry, Power House Amuse is quite possibly the superlative of JDM parts. Hardly boring or run-of-the-mill, the products that come out of their facility in Chiba are not simply functional components to be admired momentarily pre-installation only to be forsaken shortly after brusque acknowledgment of any performance benefit or gain. Every Amuse part contains an all-too-real element of genuine automotive artistry.

Throwin' It Back on a Thursday...

All the kids are doing this "TBT" nowadays, right?

Do people remember, about six or so years ago, when AC Schnitzer initiated their 'STOP THE COPY' campaign by publicly destroying counterfeit wheels? We do… We applauded then and we applaud it again now.

Ultimately, whether people care enough to admit it or not, fake and counterfeit parts harm the industry and cost the real innovators time, money, and resources. This, in the long run, only hurts the consumer. Support originality. Support authenticity.

Be the Funk. Don't fake it.
