It’s Friday night, and the weekend’s here! I need to unwind with the party, Mr. DJ! Kudos to those of you that know the lyrics! Luis Ochoa, head photographer of Myculture, Estie Falero, head honcho of Side Mission Garage, and myself,Shane Prescod, were invited to hangout with JJ Naico and the Street Legal Crew! So we departed the Treehaus and ventured north to West Palm Beach. I drove my S14 Silvia, Estie in his joy dori S13 coupe, which is rare since he normally rolls out in his slammed Nissan D21 mini truck! Nonetheless, the night was special, it was one of those few nights when the air here in South Florida is actually cool, and not blazing hot! Peak turbo boosting season!
We arrived at JJ’s cozy home as he’s messing about with the SR20 engine in his rad Power Purp Eater S13 hatch. He said he was experiencing a boost leak but before the other members of the Street Legal drift team showed up, JJ found where the problem was and fixed it. After some good laughs and standard car talk, it was time to decided a food spot for us to eat. Estie suggested Lupita’s Mexican Grill, a stone’s throw away from the actual beaches of West Palm Beach. We all left from JJ’s having chosen our food spot, misbehaving like a band of rogue kaido racers on the highway; As I mentioned before, it’s boost season! The best time of year for our cars to breathe in all of freshly dense cool air, so why not make the best of it and act a li’l silly? Just, you know, don’t get caught!
The menu was simple, with everything one would expect from a beachside Mexican grill. I had some burritos, chimichangas and Jarritos to wash down the deliciousness. After our meal, we explored downtown WPB under the street lights, the night cruise was slow and steady as we took in the sights of this elderly person capitol. We ended up in a parking lot with a view of the bridge with neon lights and some body of water, maybe the intra-coastal. As various conversations ensued, we hung out until it was time for us to go home.
