With a mass of Skylines on the street, to stand out you need to go wild.
Daniel the owner certainly went wild. I’ve seen pics on the net of various front end conversions on Skylines before, but this is an odd one.
When I first saw the car I couldn’t tell what the hell it was at the front. Whatever it was, it looked different. Which is always a good thing.
While the car was being built he nicked parts off his Dad’s VL commodore.
He did all the panel and paint work himself. Which makes it twice as awesome.
BBS wheels set it off.
While the car was parked all day. I’ve heard Daniel likes to give it death.
Cheers for the pics and the chat Daniel. Love your work.
We didn’t think it could be done. But BWARP SSS on 21/07/2012 was BIGGER and it was BETTER than the first one.
The rain stayed away and other than a bit of water we put on the pad (and myself) to assist the guys that had too much traction (read: MX5’s and a certain yellow corona)
We were also graced with a congregation of grey hairs that had converged on Hampton Downs motorsport park in their campervans…. They were having a blast watching the open wheelers track testing early in the morning and then checking us out tearing it up !!!

And TONNES more + videos are popping up on The Bwarp SSS facebook page
I can only extend my thanks once again to EVERYONE that attended in particular all those that helped out and saved me running all over the place picking up cones (with my broken body) The best skid day yet and we can’t wait to bring you the September Slide Session YFYLJ !!!!
Thats right friends, Bwarp is proud to bring you the Sunday Slide Session.
It’s pretty simple, any make of car is welcome and its a half day on the skid pad at Hampton Downs.
It’s big so it will be split up the centre so two cars can be on at once, this ensures everyone gets a good amount of time out there. A basic cone course is laid out for you to either practise your grip skills or practise your drift style.
We will have control of the water on the pad which is an option throughout the afternoon.
$40 per vehicle, if you wish to have an alternate driver or (1 only) passenger you can but ALL PARTYS entering the skid pan area MUST have filled in the relevant forms prior.
Just because you have another driver does not mean you get twice as much time, it means you have to share the time for that vehicle UNLESS you pay for the extra person.
But there are ONLY 20 spots available
The normal rules apply as to any meet or event you go to:
No drugs, no Alcohol and no douche attitudes
Spectators are free and the more the merrier, come hardpark and talk some smack.
Any questions please either post here or email firstname.lastname@example.org

Bit of a late-ish night blog update, but I’ve just got back from a secret squirrel meet up with Kerri, who has shown me the fresh sticker job done on her sparkly pink FC RX7 Racecar.
She also was so kind and bought me back a stack of chicken from Wongs Kitchen in Hamilton for me and the flatmates to try (and she’s a vegetarian!!)
Now – check out the vinyl job done by Mad Mike at CRE8GRAFX.
Notice any familiar stickers on there?
You saw it here first. The new glammed up PERFK. WHAKA YEAH.
COMING TO A RACETRACK NEAR YOU!
This meet became the last of a series of semi successful burgerfuel meets. they’ve been fun, but due to the size of the meets we have to move on. Sadly this meet was also plagued with munters pulling ‘phat skidz’ out of carparks, and hittin dat VTEC on their way to the exit. Shot bros…. Despite the general, well known, etiquette of not being a douche upon entering and leaving a meet, people still decide it’d be a sweet idea to remind us what VTEC sounds like, and also show us how hard their skyline doesn’t go.
Aside from all this, my pictures of the event turned out pretty shit, because after getting kicked out of the Countdown carpark (due to too many cars, and some young fucks threatening to bottle the manager of Countdown if he called the cops) we went to the stadium, which has shitty lighting.
Moral of the story is – if you get asked to leave private property, you do it quietly, you don’t grab a crowbar and start yelling at the guy in charge of Countdown….
Bwarp meets are going on hold for a few months now, due to needing to control the amount of douchebaggery that has just started showing up. For 6 months we had such a good run, everyone was a good cunt, and was just down to have a yarn about cars and fap over bling and eat some sweet sweet burgers.
These meets will potentially become an invite only affair until we can find a way to control the dickheads that are showing up.
Thanks for the good run.
On a positive note – here are some photos (albeit, shit ones)
No need to name names in here, if you did something a bit silly, i’m sure you know who you are. Keep launches for the track, and motorway on-ramps (if you really feel the need) and keep them well away from these meets and the public.
