So we had another Dessert at Dennys meet. a few new peeps got invited out, so the ones who got out of their cars to say hi, it was appreciated, more names to faces!
I also managed to lock my keys in the car… fuckin’ virgin. Lucky Iain came to the rescue with his AA card and set me free.
Close mates, many desserts, coffee and heaps of loose banter.
Here’s some shit pics. High ISO, Low focus, many blurs. Mean.
Here’s Joff’s family packer. What an excellent steed.

Till next time boys and girls.
sick meet. heaps of catching up.
Roll on summer chur!
Been taking a bit of time out recently to play with my own car.
Thought I’d maybe post up a bit of a progress photo taken today to show how far it’s come since day one.
It started its life in my possession as a worn out 235,000km old Eunos Roadster.
Looked a bit like this:
It has since had some Cusco adjustable suspension installed. some Racetech seats. its been through a few different sets of wheels, and it’s come down to this:
It’s sitting on some Tri-spoke Advan SA3R’s that my good friend Dan hooked me up with. They seem a nice period correct 90’s wheel, and will be the road wheels for the car.
Now i’m just waiting to get a rollbar/cage welded in and we’ll be able to get it on the track finally.
If you are experienced in building roll bars/half cages in MX5’s/Roadsters then gimme a bell, i’m interested in discussing options.
Low key Aka’s cruise (can’t really have huge convoys running over that bit of road….).
Iain, Craig, JD and I making good use of the last part of a massive easter weekend…. i think Summer has finally arrived… and looking at the state of the sky as I write this, seems to have left already.
Ratshit. Not much to say re: this but Akatarawa road is sketchy, particularly when the narrowest bits of road come and you have to squeeze past Falcons and El Grands and need to drop into the ditch to get past…. 4×4 spec ride height for the win.
Quick sequence of pics that JD snapped from the passenger seat of the Roadster.
