Burgerfuel Meet 26 October 2011 – PHOTODUMP

Aloha,
The weather was a bit… well…. wet on Wednesday night for the Monthly Burgerfuel Meet….
Aparently that doesn’t turn a large group of people off, because the turnout to this meet was still superb. Shout out to the kids from Oldschool.co.nz for rolling out for a feed and a yarn too.
As usual we chilled and ate our Wednesday night roast. The weather was shit, so we didn’t stand round fapping over Kerri’s rotang for long before a smaller group of us convoyed out to an undisclosed location in Pori-vegas. (What a bustling metropolis it is…)
Here’s some shots:

As we parked up a few local hoodlum children sprinted our way to check out the cars. This standard of vehicles must be fairly foreign to them as they distinctly lack Enkei G-Zeros and random panels covered in primer. One of the young kids was quoted saying “dis is like some shit out of fast n furious, deez are da badst cars in Porirua!”
I think errbody LOL’d at that.

Kerri brought out an FD RX7 named PIE.

Thanks to all who came out for it, it was most enjoyable to get to know a few more of you.
Until next time.

4 & Rotary Super Show – Auckland 22nd October 2011

IMG_6353resized
Me and the Mrs planned ourselves a trip up north over labour weekend. When we booked this trip, I was not aware that it would also be finals weekend for Rugby World Cup in Auckland…. I was mad. Then a ray of light. The 4 & Rotary Supershow was on, the same weekend. WOOO.

We turned up to the show about lunch time. Huge amounts of people everywhere. Dirfers doing their thing on the carpark-come-skidpad that had been set up. Quad bikes and offroaders going nuts in the paddock behind the event centre.
I snapped a few pics of the rides outside before going inside:

Maserati on BBS was pretty pornographic.

I also snapped these photos off as this Laurel pulled into the carpark.

Once we were done have a nosey around the things parked outside, it was time to go into the event centre, and deal with the masses of people (there’s far too many people in Auckland…) to get a glimpse of some shiny rides.
The first hall we went into was full of Rotarys. In usual NZ style they were painted extreme candy colours and had Simmons wheels fitted. That hall was kinda weird, it didn’t have any music playing… it was like going into a library or a museum… Anyway – the two cars below are the ones that really stood out to me of all of them in that hall.

Stupid danger tape in the way… fffffffff
The photos to follow are from the main hall. There was copious amounts of Subarus…. too many if you ask me….not enough variation….. There were heaps of normal street cars on wheels that had just been painted black…. In my opinion, the standard of cars was pretty whorey. I did snap off a few photos of the ones that stood out to me.

This RX7 really stood out to me. So hot.
The car below caught my eye as soon as I entered the show hall. Being bright orange it popped out in front of all the other cars in the hall. It looked to be in immaculate condition too. NAICE.

That’s all from me for this round.
Bwarp meet at Burgerfuel tonight. CHYEAH

Random Snap – Blue EG on Hutt Motorway

Holla,

Kane and I went to visit Craig so he could spend his time cleaning Kanes ute (shot bro!). By 3.30pm the sun was beating down hard, and looked amazing on the refreshed paintwork of the Ute. We hopped back in the truck to head back to town, and the Civic below followed us along the Motorway. I signalled at him with the camera and directed a mini photoshoot using only hand gestures. We bloody fun hanging out the window of the ute snapping shots off as the Civic darted around us.

Here’s a couple of shots.

If anyone knows the owner of the car/if the owner is reading this – hit me up for a hi-res copy if you want it. Cheers for the photo-op, GC!

PEACE.

Get Obsessive about Vehicle Security

So with all the car thefts and break ins that have happened recently. I thought it was about time to get an alarm installed in the Bwarp Appliance.

But who do you talk to in Wellington when you want an alarm? Julian at Obsessive Vehicle Security, that’s who.

Julian had recently got in touch to tell me about a new alarm that Cobra are releasing that works with the normal Nissan door remotes that came with the Cube3 (and any other car that came with factory central locking remotes). The Cube also has a proximity key which means you can have the keys in your pocket to open the doors. By just pressing the button located on the door handle with the proximity card in your pocket, the car unlocks. When you get into the car, you can start the car, also with your keys remaining in your pocket. Julian advised he could get all this to continue working with the standard remote, but he was now able to include a really loud alarm to tell intruders to GTFO – it also reduces the sting from my insurance company each fortnight.

Julian has an excellent reputation for car security. He’s done alarms for me previously and also for other mates around town and I was sold on this Cobra alarm as it’s what I’d be looking for all along!

I handed the keys over to him Wednesday night and the alarm was installed and finished early Thursday arvo. Julian even made the effort of coming to pick me up from work in Town in his Honda Beat. Choice wee car, amazing engine noise, I’m just a wee bit tall for it!

Upon getting the car back, Julian explained how the alarm works. how to arm disarm, and what features he’d enabled. The alarm is the Cobra 4600. It hasn’t been released yet as it still being tested by installers (hence Julian wanting to test its features in the Cube). It’s got a wireless siren – so no need to run a hole through the firewall. It has Ultrasonics (air pressure sensors). It’s also fully programmable by plugging it into a computer via USB to turn on and turn off various features, change beep noise etc.

As usual Julian did a superb job. The siren and alarm module are well hidden. The LED’s in the dash board are seamlessly integrated. The ultrasonics (air pressure sensors) are fitted like they would have been from factory, and the colour even matches the rest of interior (WIN!)

 Tidy install of LED’s into factory switch blanks.

 As usual, was a superb job by Julian. A shoutout must also go to Cobra for letting the Cube be the test pilot for their new fangled alarm.

For all your alarm needs in the Wellington area – Get in touch with Julian at Obsessive Vehicle Security. 0212 4 ALARM
