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

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.

Jono’s tidy as Civic. This guy has a different set of wheels for every day of the week, I swear.

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.

A bit of a rant

Have you ever posted a picture of your car on a forum or on Facebook and had the first 5 comments being ‘needs more this’ ‘needs more that’ ‘N33Dz mOaR LoW’?

I’m sure I’ve been guilty in the past of saying ‘needs more’. But from this day forward I shall refrain. 

Does every EG Civic need orange indicators and the same ‘Mugen style’ front lip?
Does every MX5/Miata need moar low and some 15×8 +0 offset BBS copies?
Does every Celica GT-Four need a giant riser block rear spoiler?
Does every Skyline need Drift-teks and some ‘aDjUstIez’?

Nah – I don’t think they do.

Craig’s Toyota Celica GT-FOUR

The GCDC decided it was a great day to head over to the Wairarapa on Saturday just been. Sun was shining.
We took the girlfriends car, which was a perfect opportunity for me to hang out the window and take pictures of Craig’s GTF0.
The only two that actually came out any good are the ones posted below. Shooting with a zoom lens from a moving car is tough work it seems.

A Very Tough AE86

This car made me a little bit moist when it came out of the pits on Saturday at Manfeild.

So much want all in one spot.

Drivers PB of 1:17.9 round Manfeild means it’s pretty damn quick!
