How's the spring weather treating you all? As days get longer, the feel of summer begins to creep in and for me, the smell of sea springs to mind. A wee while ago (I apologise for the delay, I'm frantically cramming for exams in the upcoming week and they're not gonna be a walk in the park!) my friend Mikey wanted to play around with his video feature on his SLR. I was willing to provide some static cover (admittedly, it would've been nice to shoot some video but shooting 1080p on an 8GB card would mean no photos) whilst he was shooting. Excuse the continued experimentation in the logo and watermark. I'm looking to finalise soon enough, let me know your opinions upon the new stuff!
Matt and I were a bit early, so we popped off onto the marina for a few quick shots.
Car's way too jizztastic for it's good. I love the stock look, but upon closer inspection, there's much to it that is very subtle. There are big plans for this car, just need the time and money to make it happen.
Ravi's beautiful RX7
Sits rather well, practical yet staunch.
I've not seen a set of XD9s in this colour, Ravi tells me they're limited edition. I don't put it past Work to do such a thing, they look very, very good. Goes really well on the car - and yes it is a factory colour!
Had a wee sit in these. Despite my fat (and ever growing) ass, I fit in them snugly. I'm sold. Want! (Dear Santa...)
Very nice piece of kit under the hood too! It's not just all show, got plenty of go to boot.
Bit of a laugh!
Dom - a regular on the Wellington scene. Seen plenty of track time in that S15, still reliable as ever! That's my goal very soon, fair bit of power and reliable. There's a long road to go on the 180, but it'll get there.
Reliable 220kw at the wheels. Shreds the tires no worries!
He did say he just got some genuine drift bumper stickers. Enlarge the photo and take a look at the writing - amazing Engrish!
Man himself, Mikey hard at work.
Michael's AE82 Corolla FX-GT; notice the giant whale penis - it's loud. It's light, nimble...
and helladirty! It adds some character to the little thing.
Forgive me, the early Evos are all dominated Evo 3 bodykits - I'm unsure what this actually is.
However, it looks to run some big numbers at the wheels. I heard 300kw floating around at the meet, perhaps I heard wrong, though.
Unfortunately, I didn't get more photos of this. It's a very powerful Civic, running B20 block and B18CR head making a very healthy amount of power (300kw+?) at the wheels. I wonder how much he struggles to put that down, though. I can't imagine how hard it would be to control that beast. The bonnet and guards were both carbon fibre pieces, visually striking appearance too.
Another regular, Ryan and his RKLESS CL1. Drives it low, hard and fast.
An emerging character, Matt aka Muscles, and his beautiful STI coupe. Take a closer look
I really like the factory look but it had a subtle edge to it. I dig it.
Every time I look at this, it looks slightly wonkier than the other time. I've tried fixing it, I blame the shaky ground.
This sums it nicely for the coverage. It was a quiet meet, on the eve of historical rugby too. When we left for a cruise, the streets were teeming with people cheering in jubilation. 3 guesses what had happened huh?
You can find Mikey's video of the night here. At the time of writing, it is just a teaser with the full length (hopefully) coming soon.
Anyway, have a good night everyone. GO THE ALL BLACKS!
