Welcome to the official GReddy USA blog. -Think of this as our online weekly "GReddy Times," a venue for us to report what's going on or what just happened at GReddy USA this week (new products, new projects, racing news, even online store specials.) On our blog you can see what we are up to in the GReddy Sales floor, R&D garage, on the road or even from our Headquarters in Japan.
Now that Thanksgiving is almost here and the 2009 is just around the corner, we thought it might be a good time to thank all the Racers and Tuners who proudly utilized GReddy products in 2008. We didn't have room to list all of them, so here is just a glimpse of some the machines in action. (Look for more indepth features in future blog entries)

This past weekend also kicked off the OE Auto Show circuit, with the LA Auto Show. Definitely less people looking at trucks and SUVs. And it seemed like the big push were either for economy or high performance cars. We were looking more for tunable models. But here are a few highlights from our visit...
(at the top of our list had to be the new 370Z) (next tot he Z was this Cube, might also be option?) (Congrats to the GTR for the Car of the Year award. we have some cool parts coming for the GTR very soon..) (The new Mazda 6 looked interesting too) (as did the new Lexus IS250 2dr. convertible) (It was good to see the GReddy logo on Pastrana's rally STI) (Honda seems to be going more towards the economy path) (although this concept car was pretty cool looking)
Please shoot us an email at email@example.com if you have a good recommendation for a new vehicle we should consider.
In addition to the LA Auto Show, we stopped by Super Autobacs, in Staton, Ca., this weekend with our (project GRB) STI for the JTuned.com Car Meet. It was good to see all the enthusiast enjoying all the cool cars and a sunny California Sunday afternoon at this informal style meet. Look for the car at other local events. Here are a few pictures...

Sunday at the Red Bull Drift Championships was a terrific day. The sun was out and the ash and haze was down. The crowds were great and the show the drivers put on was really fun to watch. As we sort through all our photos to update, here are a few informal videos from the event. Virtual Tour of the booth and one of our favorite tandem battles with Authorized GReddy Dealer Driftspeed's S15 piloted by 2002 D1GP Champ Ueo-san vs. the Bridgestone GTO.
Thank for all who visted us at the Event, and congratulations Formula D and Red Bull for putting on an impressive show. Please check back with us soon for more pictures from Sunday at the show...
Well we just got back from the track and it looks really amazing. The entire GPP staff is really looking forward to the event. The industrial backdrop with the ships, cranes and containers is so cool. Should be a really fun weekend. We look forward to seeing GReddy fans from all over. So, please remember to stop by the GReddy Booth in the vendor area and check out our new products, tee shirts and project cars.
