Just spoke to John Rhee. He is opening up his friend and his 1600+ sq. ft. suite @ the MGM w/ full bar, 2 bedrooms and view of the LV Strip on Thurs. too. So many options and so little time. So many places to play and so much Hybrid business to complete. At the end of the day, one must still feel damn good and proud to be a Hybrid. Lets continue to appreciate all the success we continue to have. Call me if interested on Thurs.

Hybrid luv,

Our cars not only continue to make industry news but now, industry awards too at SEMA. First, we have the debut of Darin's Nissan R35 which made news on GTRBlog.com and now today which is the 2nd day of SEMA, John Rhee sends me a message saying he won the Mothers SEMA SHINE Award with his Mercedes CLS 55 which is another one of our new projects which made its debut @ SEMA 2008 . The award ceremony is @ 2pm today and it will also be televised. Congrates John and I'm sure all of us are curious to see what the finished top secret project look like.

5 of our Team Hybrid cars are there and 2 of them have made some news. I wonder who else will catch the attention of all these industry people. If not, our team just broke another record this year with 5 Team Hybrid cars at SEMA 2008 compared to last year record of 4. This record breaking year has truly been remarkable. We continue to make history. Thanks for all you Hybridz do esp. behind the scenes.

Hybrid luv,

Hybridz:

Our 5 cars and member presence @ SEMA was amazing. We were everywhere. I just returned back from Las Vegas and when the pictures get posted, they will speak for themselves. Lots of hard work behind the scenes from all levels esp. to those who built cars to debut @ the SEMA show. The parties were fun but more importantly, some of us took full advantage of the show to network, plant seeds for future sponsorship and etc. for their cars which are being built to show for our 2009 show/race season. I already did what I had too for our team to get us ready for 2009, some followed me around so I can show them some of the behind the scenes business and I'm glad some members/probies are picking up on how to work it for themselves.

4th quarter is also looking like a success and we will end the year with a couple more meetings, a couple more Hybrid cars in magazines, Round 7 on 11/26 and now, I'm happy to announce Round 8 @ V20 on 12/06 and then end the year with our Christmas Party on 12/06.

Hybrid luv,

James Lin

Team Hybrid's record breaking presence @ SEMA 2008: Darin Ferraro's 2009 Nissan GTR (R35) @ the Falken booth. Again, much luv and thanks goes out to our Events Director, Robert Chew, who works @ Falken for making the booth spot happen as well as other sponsorships within our industry peers. Chris "Chef" for all the behind the scenes work and Darin for buying/building such a Hybrid Quality car in about a 1 month period. More to come for this bad boy esp. in our 2009 show/race season. Lastly, from a team stand point, Darin gives our team the bragging rights right now as having the best built individually/team owned R35 @ SEMA 2008.

If you missed out on seeing this car @ SEMA and would like to see it in person, Darin will be attending and displaying the R35 @ V20 "Round 7" Hybrid's Thanksgiving Eve Party on 11/26/08.

Nice pics James thanks!

Thanks to Francis as well who was there with his wagon when we needed it. We drove the car on the stock wheels/tires and met up with Robert, swapped out with the Rays/Falkens at the show. Francis also hung everyday from who knows what time he had to wake up to get to my house so we could leave at 7am!

Thanks Robert for hooking it up and defending my spot. I really enjoyed showing off the car. A lot of photographers would stop by after shooting the other GTRs and tell me mine was the best one out of the show. Lots of inquires about my mods on the forums after the show as well, looks like the GTR owners liked what I did.

Cost of this car, $95k at the dealer (Vin 0007), plus mods costing me over $37k not including the free sponsored stuff.

It's worth every penny :)
