American Car park up n shine – Otaihanga – 22/01/2012

So I finally dug these photos out of the archives. Being a month old, i thought it was about time considering i’ve got a lil bit of time off work.
Huge turnout of cars to this one, all presented to an incredibly high standard. When the import car scene gets like this, we will have something to be very proud of. Casual as 100+ car meets on a Saturday arvo…. epic.
Here’s some pics:

and this would have been my favourite car of the whole day. Slammed bagged, on steels, white walls, matte blue, pin striping, and just the right amount of chrome. Cars like this gimme a semi. filth

That’s enough from me.
PEACE.

Bwarp Loves Minitrucks!

Kia ora friends.
Minitrucks have always held a special wee place in my heart. Especially when they are from my own hood (Kapiti Coast yee rep rep G).
This is HEL200.

If you can’t tell from the pictures – it’s had some very serious work done. With 4 inches removed from the roof, a 2.5 inch body drop, 1 inch removed from the sills and shortened a total of 51″ in the tray. That’s right Fifty one inches….. that’s a lot of inches…. After all this work – it’s a struggle to recognise it as a dirty old mitsi L200….
It’s also had a lot of the usual minitruck changes done with Cadillac tail lights warning anyone behind that the anchors are on. Everything’s been shaved so it’s smoother than a baby’s backside. It also runs all the usual airbag set up with big valves and lines for mad slamming action.
Engine wise it’s running 4G63T from a VR4. Making about 203hp at 10psi on the dyno which pushes this truck along nicely. 
The workmanship on this truck needs to be seen to be believed, it’s on another level. 
Moral of the story? You should buy this truck and girls will love you. Lynx effect? pssshhh nar that’s bullshit. HEL200 effect? yeah that shit’s for real.

Andrew’s Mazda B1600 Ute

Whilst surfing friends of friends on Facebook (not a stalker…honest), this Old School Mazda B1600 caught my eye. Andrew, the owner, was more than happy to forward me a few pics that he had. What a GC!

As seen on Road Cops on TV3.

As you may have noticed, this ute sits pretty bloody low. Thank the lord for airbag suspension. Holla!

 I couldn’t think of a better colour to drape over this ute.
If you are ever in Tauranga – keep your eyes peeled for this beast rollin’, I’m sure it looks the tits in the flesh.
