Caretiquette

I've gotta get writing some of my own material again.

I couldn't resist this blog post I found on ObsessiveCompulsiveTuningCars.com

About etiquette when turning up to a casual car meet.

Check it out here. It's crucial information

Japan Grassroots

This video was posted on another car blog i've recently found with a shit load of awesome photos. Check it out HERE

It may not be Kiwi - but by god it's quite cool. Just don't try this at home or on the streets. I don't endorse street drifting in the slightest - let's just leave it to the crazy japs!!

Scotts S14 Skidder

Here's a quick picture of Scott T's Nissan S14 Silvia. Even though he took the turbo gear off the car for the day for some no worries skids, this car could still light it up without hassle.

Hopefully will be getting hold of some more pics of the day at Slipway... Silly old me forgot to put the CF card in the Canon before leaving home. DOUUUUCHE.

RC Street Drift

Found this on Speedhunters.com.

RC street drifters from Korea. If you are the same as me and can't afford to run a real drift car, then these have got to be the next best option. Want one!!

Dumb trademe questions

So the Mrs is trying to sell her car on tardme as a classified....

She has received an email today which says:

Can you give me an idea of the petrol consumption of your car,cos I believe a 2000cc motor may be a bit expensive to run daily.

 I mean.... what the fuck...?

You may as well ask "how long is a piece of string?"

If you think a two thousand cc engine is going to be too expensive, why the fuck are you looking at them then, you clown? 

It's just a fuckin' joke. How do I know what you consider as 'expensive'? You might be a fuckin' dole bludger that's realised now that the price of gas has gone up close to $2 a litre you can't afford to drive your 'Folden Falcodore' back from the pub after a few Lion Reds with the boys so you can bash the missus and kids.

I think I'm done now.

Rant over.

Vanuatu Automotive Scene

So on my trip to Vanuatu I scoured the shores to find something worth posting about. To put it plainly there was 1 performance car on the whole island (1996 WRX that was thrashed as hell!) oh.... and the Hummer....

Now really their 'automotive' scene consists of taxi drivers who pimp out their cars. We are talking 5% tints, headlight overlays, window banners, mesh grilles, big fake carbon GT wings. So I found this car:


Yes - it's a Daewoo..... They love these things over there. The tints are so dark you can't see through them. It's a pity I didn't get a picture of this car 'rolling' at night because it was covered in blue neons too.
Another part of the automotive scene consists of these off-road buggies:

250cc Four Stroke engines, one automatic gear. So much fun, would be even more fun with a big bike engine and a real gearbox on it. Was still great for drifts on the beach in its current guise. They are fully road rego'd and there are two businesses on the tiny island that run tours with these things, so you see them fairly often on the road.

Fireworks Cruise - Bwarp Style

Cruise went down, minus a few people who bailed. Still had a good turn out for the first Bwarp Cruise event ever.

Started on waterfront - went to Thorndon for fush n chups and photos in the UG carpark. Drove out, rain started... aparently fireworks were cancelled, but we continued the drive. Cruised the bays, got to airport, turned round as fireworks were back on again. Pics as follows!


 This Citroen BX Gti belongs to Alex, and before you ask, no it's not on cutties - they are factory fitted airbags. Switches get the bitches.








Road block.

STICKERS.

Stickers are here:

There are 6 Limited Edition stickers that have just been printed with the BWARP logo on them - MY GOD THEY WERE NOT CHEAP.

They measure 25cm x 8cm and seem to be of relatively high quality vinyl. The Fireworks Cruise this Friday will be first selling point. First in first served. Just need a donation of $5 per sticker to cover part of the cost.

Check out this (dodgy quality phone) pic.


See you Friday.

(hopefully the weather forecast is wrong - cos currently it looks like rain...)

Te Marua Speedway Caravan Derby 24/10/10

We packed up the van and went off to Te Marua Speedway out in the back blocks of the Hutt Valley for CARAVAN DERBY.

Despite a dodgy location behind the cage fence, still managed to get some quite good pics. Tell me what you think.
