Quick Snap: JD’s AE70… again

This car is just so damned photogenic. Everytime we go out for a roll around, we find somewhere nice to put it up on a postcard.
As my man, David Dallas says – “Take a picture – ka chiiiiik”

Oldschool.co.nz Wellington Pizza Meet 01/09/2011


Pizza…? Check
Old school cars…? Check
Good characters…? Check

This is a recipe for a good evening, and the Oldschool.co.nz monthly meets are always sure to please.

Showed my face at Septembers meet, and convinced my lil bro to come out with his old Mitsi Mirage.

Here’s some pics I snapped after devouring a shit load of pizza, and a few beers.

This old Mazda ute, is epic. and it’s not just some pretty show truck. It gets used properly. Check out the engine just chillin’ in the back seat.





On the topic of bright colour schemes on cars – this Lancer was wearing a bright blue coat.





Here’s a filthy diesel Citroen BX.



Love this wee addition:


Joe’s 205 was there, as seen previous posts.


Here is my brothers Mirage.



Here’s a sick as Datsun draped in Matty-B.



Here’s some other odds and ends



And now for the car that pretty much made me explode in my pants.

Toyota Cressida Wagon on Volk meshies. hnnnnnggggggg





Hi res photos available here:

That’s all from me, I look forward to the next one.


The French Do It BETTER!

Continuing on from the previous post from the OldSchool.co.nz meet, I felt the need to do a seperate post for one car that showed up on the night that really made an impression on me.

Joe’s Peugeot 205 Gti – with Mi16 lurve.

These cars usually come with either an 8 valve 1.6 or an 8 valve 1.9 engine. From the factory they put out some bloody good numbers. Joe has gone to the next level with his build, dropping in one rare piece of metal between his strut towers. The infamous Mi16. 16 valves. 1.9 litres of capacity. and one hell of a mental exhaust note.

I won’t go into extreme detail with engine specs because I’m not too clever at it.

So I’ll let these couple of pictures speak for themselves.


This is certainly no pretty boy JDM spek Honda. It’s build to go fast. It’s ruthless as hell.

Joe's 205

Joe seems to be all about function over form. When asked why the top cover of his dash board and speedo cluster was missing he replied “It was rattling, so I ripped it off”. Just the way he likes it.

chicken lol

Not only is it fast, it’s got character too. This rubber chicken on the rear wiper is just one hilarious addition to the vehicle to really make it something different.


What most people would notice first is that the bonnet is … well…. fairly rusty…. This bonnet is quite sought after as it only ever came out on Automatic 205’s and most of them get raped and pillaged pretty quickly because the bonnets have a slight rise or ‘bulge’ in the middle of them. Some Peugeot enthusiasts pay top dollar for those bonnets, so as a big “FUCK YOU”, Joe decided he would strip the paint off his rather valuable bonnet and get some rust up in dat.

Who needs chromes, bags and candy paint to turn heads?

All you need is rust.
