  5. The unusual suspect: the eighth wonder of the world, a friend, brother and overall rambling man Derek Despain has never been one to settle down. A week of knowing Despain can somewhat be related to the feeling of trying to find a mysteriously lost set of keys within the confines of your own home I know they are here somewhere? Honestly, what could my keys possibly be doing right now? Alright, now, where the fuck are they? Regardless, the past years of acquainting
    myself with the guy has been a refreshing experience to say the least. Through a spectrum of highs, lows, different jobs, physical confrontations, women and long nights of boozing, it has always been an seamless idea of calling upon the soft- spoken, yet uniquely dark, humorous vagabond, Despain. As a key family member to the CHAPTER brigade of individuals, we sat down with Despain to criticize his life on a motorcycle and some of his most recent endeavors.

Life is too short for ugly cars.

Safe. You can choose your means of getting around by price-performance ratio, trunk capacity or color. Or by breakdown statistics. Of even by fuel efficiency. Now that's really safe. And rational. But you can also let your heart and the gasoline in your blood carry you away. That's passion.

Chromjuwelen.com (Chrome Jewels) sets off with the passion that steers you off the safe path into the irrational lane. The community that meets and exchanges info every day on the internet portal has it's high-octane outing behind it. And often makes everything associated with it—choice of music, clothing and colorful skin—part of their lifestyle. With all the consequences. And a lot of self-confidence.

    After a life changing motorcycle accident Steve was paralyzed from the waist down. His love of cars and more importantly Porsche's put him back in the drivers seat. Using hand controls, he is driven by a passion to once again become whole. A big part of the journey has been learning to drive again. His love of Porsche's is only eclipsed by his determination to not be limited by his handicap.
