Wow! Has time passed. It's been 3 weeks since my last post and boy has life been busy. With a new job and a pregnant wife at home I have little time or motivation to get out and shoot. That was until I came across Baltazar Guzman's Champ White 97 Honda Civic EK, SIR Rep.
I gave this post the title "Pride of the Foothill's" For two reasons. 1. This has to be one of the cleanest daily driven Honda Civic EK's in the 626. 2. It just so happens to be our home town's slogan and my sentiment for this gemstone of a Honda.
Let me tell you a little about the owner of this "crispy clean" Ek. His name is Baltazar Guzman. Ya, you heard that right, Baltazar. When I asked his name I was like, huh? For real? Definitely wins the most unique name award, ha-ha-ha. Sorry Baltazar! For being such a young cat I was pleasantly surprised by the level of his thought process and maturity. Dude has his stuff together. He works and is currently going to school to study criminal justice. After the completion of school, Baltazar plans to enter the world of law enforcement as a California Highway Patrol. Dope! We need more down to earth, car loving cops out here!
What I really like about Baltazar's build is his simplistic approach and functional style. Ya, I'm sure you could send me photos of some high dollar, wildn-out civics but clean and simple is how I like it. Great job!
