Spotted: Audi RS2 Avant

So at a party I was at a while ago, this car rolls up. I've never laid eyes on one before. It's an Audi RS2 Avant.

Based on the Audi 80 Avant it was Audi's first 'RS' badged monster. Full of obviously branded Porsche parts including intake manifolds and of course the brakes, pictured below. With a 5 cylinder 2.2litre turbocharged donk under the hood it makes for 315hp from factory.... not bad for a mid 90's family wagon! It'd certainly be enough power for passengers to shit themselves when the driver is chopping through all 6 gears and using that Quattro 4wd system to the max....

Anyways - the owner - Nik was a real GC and could talk all day about his blue beauty. The story of how it came to be in his posession is actually quite cool. He had seen it around before and it was previously owned by a company. He saw the company went into liquidation, so rang the liquidators and hounded them about the car, they didn't give much detail. Then from what i remember of our conversation (it was crate day and I was a few bottles down so this recollection could be rather hazy) a mate of his called him from a local mechanic. His mate had spotted this car there, so he went and had a look at it while the Mechanic had it, then found it was going up for auction, so went and bought it. After wanting one of these for most of his life, he definitely bought a good one. And he was lucky to get one at all considering there is only about 10 or so in the country........

Here's the drunkenly taken pics - YAY CRATE DAY.

The owner of this car, Nik, also tells me he is an admin on the VASK.org.nz forum for Audi's and VW's.

A whole lot more information about these rare cars is also available HERE and HERE if you are keen for some further reading.

Eyes will be peeled and the camera will be out over the Xmas/New Year period, hunting for all things that go Bwarp.

PEACE

Spotted: E30 BMW

A couple of weeks back I spotted this tidy E30 BMW parked up outside my work. I snapped a couple of pics on my phone to post up.

What an eventful evening!!

Great turn out, intense food, sweet yarns, decent weather, and a nice short drive along the coast line.

Oh - and some Paraparaumu loony who went apeshit cos there was too many cars in the carpark, and it meant she had to go through drive through. good times.

Anyway - enough of the bullshit....! more photos!

Port Road Drags 2011 through the eyes of J-Drizzle.


j-Drizzle - up and coming Bwarp photographer

So last week the Port Road Drags were on and Barry at Burgerfuel Johnsonville spotted me a couple of free tickets to get in there for the day. While I was busy getting brutally sunburnt, I handed the camera over to resident shit talker - JD. Here's what he saw through the lens.

National Crate day

Geoff here, wholey crap, 2 posts in 2 days, shits goin' down in Bwarp.

Within the car culture we see a lot of drinking. There are a lot of bad drinking where fools drink too many then decide to drive home (Queue ghost chips ad), but once in a while there are occasions when you need to do something manly on your car with mates and usually beers or bourbans are involved along with black singlets and open faced work boots/jandals.

So here brings another National Crate day this Saturday brought to you by The Rock and yet another suitable occasion for you to all work on your cars while drinking that cool refreshing taste of cheap piss. The weather is looking quite good and is forecasted to be sunny here in Wellignton at 15 degrees.

Be a good day to wash your car, polish your warehouse chrome hubcaps, add another layer of matte black to your labour of love or even install some new shocks in my car...*hint hint* So what are you doing? What car might you be working on?


And remember kids, definitely, definitely, DEFINITELY dont drink and drive.*
