Team Name: Gold Star
What is the origin of your team name?
When you were in kindergarten and you did a good job, you would get a gold star. It was originally meant to be a sarcastic joke ex: “oh you have steelies? good f*cking job, you get a gold star for the day (you big dumb idiot).” and so forth… We all deserve a little Gold Star now and then!
How/why was your team formed?
At the time we (Ange, Aaron, Max, and Rustam) all had Miatas, but we were more into drift style than the typical Miata stance or grip bullsh*t.
What is the history of your team?
Gold Star was started in 2011. The original members were Max, Angel, Rustam, and Aaron. Gold Star was not started as a “team” or “crew”, more as a bunch of close friends that had a passion for drinking a shit ton of banquet beer and cool, hammered cars. When it was originally started, we all had Miatas. Throughout the years, everyone evolved their sense of style/idea of what they wanted in their car, and obviously a couple more cool friends joined us in our quest for mayhem (Corbin with his JZX63 Cressida and Dominic with his Z32 300ZX). Our main goals; partying, street style, and drifting. Today we are a diverse group of tight knit friends with different yet similar taste in our hobby. Max started his drift life with an S13, went through several different chassis’, and found his way back to the s-chassis. Aaron has owned a million Miatas, and he doesn’t plan on switching chassis anytime soon. Little man = little car right? Rus, well he’s Russian and thinks his Miata is a 240SX for some reason… Angel started out in a miata, and well, lost a few brain cells, and switched to triangle magic. Corbin, Mr. Vintage, in his classic styled, yet modernized JZX63. Dominic and his show room floor lookin’ ass “Slick top” Z32. We’re here to f*ck sh*t up.
