Honda Civic Type R EK9

We were out at a derpo meet on Waitangi Weekend 2015 in Wellington, and spotted this gem amongst the flurry of Cut-Spring Commodores and Ceffys.

EK9’s do OEM style so well. and this one is spot on. Retaining the factory lightweight wheels, lowering the ride height, adding a special little spoiler and enjoying the drive.

No 15×8 +0 offset wheels here, friends!

non-fucked EK9’s are becoming thin on the ground, you’re lucky if you find one without chrome taillights.

Anyway – here’s the pics.

VIP Car show, Bangkok, Thailand 22/02/2015

Been months since an update. What a slack guy.

Anyway – as I promised, somewhere on the internet. Here are some average pics of some seriously rad cars I spotted while out bartering in Thailand.

First time seeing full blown VIP cars in the flesh like that – and it completely blew my mind. The Mrs was unimpressed that i stood round for an hour taking photos of everything…. lol..

anyway – enough shit yarns. here’s some sick cars.

Rare Nissan S14 Silvia 4 door!!

Wander round Bangkok on a recent holiday, I came across a random wee car show outside one of the bigger malls in the city.

This is a conversion I’d never seen before at all!

Without cheating see if you can guess what car this silvia front end has been grafted onto!

Lowrider Nationals

I attended the 4 & Rotary Nationals in Auckland on the weekend. I didn’t take any photos of the main show hall full of jap cars because everything was too packed together to try and get reasonable shots….. so i went to the lowrider hall to hang out and froth over their high quality, mind blowing cars….

the pics dont do these cars justice. paint so deep i wanted to strip off and swim in it (was a hot day in Auckland too, so a swimming pool would have gone down well). Chrome for dayyyyysssssss. The best wire wheels. big hopping hydro set ups. everything you could ever want in a car basically….

here’s the pics anyway.
