CJC Wellington Meet 17/08/2012 – With Special guests from R’s Garage

Holla.
Early last week I get a text from my good friend, Gung, asking if the R’s Garage crew are keen for some burgers on Friday night. Any excuse for a hoon out to Wendys to fill my face with deliciously disgusting meat, cheese and fries. So the obvious answer was ‘HELL YEAH’
We stacked the Cube up with the usual suspects and headed on out to Wendy’s.
After devouring the majority of the menu, we jumped back on the motorway and headed back to ptown for some quiet banter and some time to take pics of the cars.
Here’s the few photos I took. The rest of the time I was too busy bantering and watching JD try and find his way out of the carpark…. nice one JDriz.

Craig’s GT-Four – a proper front on shot now.
ST205 Toyota Celica GT-FOUR
Jono’s tidy as Civic. This guy has a different set of wheels for every day of the week, I swear.
EG6 Honda Civic
Here’s the DC5 I posted a photo of earlier in the week. So tidy. Advan wheels look excellent on it too. Mint tidy road car. Love it
DC5 Integra Type R
Gung’s Honda Civic FD2R. With another set of wheels. I haven’t seen this car on wheels that don’t suit it yet. Gung has impeccable taste in vehicles!

Mean as meet.
Caught up with some old faces, and met and bantered with some new characters.
PEACE.

Easter time Aka’s Cruise

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.

New Zealand Hondas North Island Mega Meet 2011


 
BOOM. The anticipation was over. NIMM WAS HERE.

Cube was packed with JD, Craig, Jono and Myself. Enough clothes to cover a body for a couple of days, and some beer to consume on the way.
The playlist was SET – in the car, pick up the boys, meet Geoff and his gang.

Cube and Shuttle parked up for some morning McD’s. We arrived at about 10.15 and waited for the day time menu to flick over. We wanted burgers for breakfast, cos who actually likes McD’s breakfast? yuck!

Still waking up

After McD’s we jumped back on the road, and the first beers were cracked… it was nearly 11am at this stage. Yeha. The Cube proved itself useful with it’s many many cup holders and hidden compartments. GO NISSAN. (OF COURSE THE DRIVER – ME – WAS NOT DRINKING. I was driving and partaking in the disgusting man-talk going on around me… i was definitely in ‘mantrol’ *facepalm*)

Sticker bombing is out – face paint on the rear window is in…. it just looks shit after the rain hits it and it’s a pain in the arse to get off too as I have now found out……

Arrived at our Hoetel Motel Holidae Inn, and filled the fridge with important substances. Beer. This is a healthily stocked fridge. FOOD GTFO.

Then we started consuming beers, as one should do once they are cold enough.
So JDM right now – sippin’ dat Asahi. CHUR!

The photos stop about here, and the night before is sorta hazy…..

We left the track and smashed back some more beers (minus Craig – that guy was chundering blood….. ew) and luckily the camera didn’t come out for those escapades…..
