Multi-Club Meet, CHC

January 18, 2010

This meeting of many clubs took place on Sunday, the build-up for it indicated that it may well have blown up t epic proportion and when I viewed some of the photos from it just now I was amazed not just by the number of cars that showed but by the diversity.  Of all the events that took place over this weekend, I think this would have been the one to attend, were it possible.  Enough blather from me though, check it out for yourself;

Big Weekend Ahead.

January 15, 2010

Nothing to really update today other than to say that there’s going to be a myriad of shenanigans taking place through-out the country this weekend and we at RC should have evidence of it next week.  So keep coming back to check out entries from the following events;


Kumeu Hot Road Show

Japanese Classic Meet

Bring on the classic Jap meet this Saturday!

Introducing, my bootlid.

With Complimentary Rust and Incorrect Spoiler!

Some might look at that spoiler and think…

“That’s not too shabby, it’s close to the right one.  Why don’t you just keep it?”

It’s been a sore spot with me since I’ve had the car.  It’s a fibreglass replica spoiler for a Torana GTR-XU1.  It doesn’t fit correctly, the attempt at fitment is abysmal and has generated a lot of rust and cracked paint.  So today came time to remove it.  A task not as easy as one might think.

Because it’s apparently the best way to generate hits for your blog! Just spam multitudinal images from all over the show! Yeh boi! S I V E R R I D oh wait.
