"Giving back" Jun Project Evox

I am a huge advocate of giving credit where it is due. Jun Osumi of Alhambra California is no stranger to the import scene. In the late 80's he already had a 1980 Toyota Corolla fitted with twin carbs, trd header and Wed Autobahn wheels. When the last generation Honda CRX came out in the early 90's he was sporting a 50 shot NOS which was later equipped with a Drag turbo kit and running a respectable 13.1 @ 115 mph at higher elevation LACR Palmdale. Jun was part of the era which started the import scene back in the 80's when RWD Toyotas, Mazdas and Mitsubishis ruled the streets of So CAL. I credit the San Gabriel Valley and Southbay for starting this global phenomenon that can still be felt present day. Before drifting, it was all about street racing and drag racing. Ontario, Sylmar, Compton, Gardena and Terminal Island were some of the favorite street racing spots of this fast growing subculture. The Honda Scene and industry as we know it including many of the old schooler's who helped pave the way arose from this era. Jun was part of this underground which is now "mainstream" movement. Jun is one of the most humble and nicest industry individuals you'll ever meet. He is well connected in the scene yet still remains down to Earth and is active within it. His 2010 Mitsubishi Evolution X is built not only with pride but expression as well as he lost his brother Kazu to a battle with colon cancer not to long ago. I am grateful as his generation has created a motorsport subculture of self expression, identity and recreation through the modification of import vehicles.
