I have attended almost all of the Bwarp monthly meets and it has been an awesome thing to be apart of this year. I have met some genuine, down to earth people through these events and I hope that they are bigger and better next year, which I am sure they will be.
Velcome to post number 100 of Bwarp.net.nz
Long time coming. Starting out as a blog amongst a few mates taking the piss, to something that now successfully holds a monthly meet where a bunch of GC’s come out have some burgers, have a yarn and fap on about cars. I love this shit!
To celebrate this 100th post – there was a bit of a photoshoot held in an underground carpark somewhere in the vicinty of Porirua after we had demo’d some burgers with our mates at Burgerfuel Johnsonville.
Here’s the pics.
Engine bay shot – look at those shiny shiny headers. Plenty of elbow grease went into those!
Gung’s Civic coupe sitting on 16″ steelies. SO boss
One of my favourite photos of the night. David’s 675 Triumph. nomnom
and again. hnnnnng
DC5R belonging to Royce.
Loved this wee sticker collection.
And I’m spent.
There’s still more photos to come from our other photographer – Sean Clarke
Thanks everyone for coming out. Thanks to those of you who have read all 100 posts!
This is only going to get bigger and better.
Was an awesome meet with over 30 cars showing up along with plenty of Good characters in those cars!
We must pile through a serious amount of burgers once a month.
Here’s a teaser video. Just trying it out for the lulz and to learn a few things. It looks like it was filmed by someone with Parkinsons. McFly?
Pics will be up sooooooon.
The 3rd Monthly Bwarp meet, once again, went off without a hitch.
A few new faces. A number of FRESH AS FUCK cars oh and of course the most OG Toyota Cressida I have ever laid eyes on…. *boner alert*
Wee line up of cars including an Altezza with a wee secret under the hood 😮
The 4WD spek Cube.
Iain’s slut 😀
Josh’s filthy anus.
Charlie’s CL1 looking SO DAMN FRESH on it’s new shoes. Probably the reddest car I’ve ever seen.
Now I’ve left what I thought were some pretty special cars to the end.
First up is Baz (the owner of Burgerfuel Jville) and his Ford Falcon drag car. Don’t ask me what year it is, or what it’s running. The engine is too big for me to comprehend. My knowledge stops at pretty much anything over 3000cc…
He bought it out especially for us to have a look at. GC!
He explained to me that if he drove it nicely, it would use about 8 – 10 litres of fuel to drive from Johnsonville, out to the Hutt where he lives…. That’s quite a lot…..
and to make it even more impressive, he tells me that he was giving it a bit of a caning and practising some drag starts, managed to use 10 litres… in 8 kilometres…..
He is potentially the sole reason for global warming – but who cares! it sounds and looks awesome.
Now for my favourite car of the whole evening.
An 80’s Toyota Cressida, in mint original condition. Right down to the stereo.
In absolutely immaculate condition.
When I saw the condition of the paint on this car, my jaw hit the floor. The owner also tells me it’s the same paint it left the factory with, and the whole car has just clicked over 70,000kms. Yes SEVENTY THOUSAND. That’s sweet fuck all in Toyota time.
I was so impressed, not only with the car, but with the owner himself. Harley (the owner) is a very young lad (my guess is about 18??), and has chosen to steer away from the usual trend of removing the springs, putting a monster tacho in it, chucking a dumpy or rice cannon on it, and fitting it up with some sweet chromes boe, and he has gone the right way and left it original – just the way it should be. For his efforts he won a free dinner from Burgerfuel. There’s no way I could let his efforts go even slightly unrewarded. Churs for bringing it out, Harley!
and to the rest of you. Thanks for coming out. Once again it was good to catch up with all of you, meet a few new people, shoot the shit, and have a good feed.
UNTIL NEXT TIME.
