After busting my arse all week to get both DR30s to Hampton Downs, an administrative fuckup today resulted in neither of my cars being judged in the show and shine competition at Nizfest which I paid to enter.
The organizers gave me two bottles of cleaner wax as amends, but I don’t think I will return next year unless a retro-classics or oldschool.co.nz club stand is organized. Was pretty disappointed and ended up leaving the event early after discovering this.
However Snoozin von Richy of OS fame snapped these photos of the DR30s on the trip home, which kinda cheered me up a little. And at least I made it there and back in the end, even after all the trouble squid was giving me! Thanks to all of the OS guys who came down for the day, and cheers to Ned for taking on driving duties in the coupe.
My own photos of the day will be up within the next 24 hours. There was a definite lack of older Nissans and Datsuns this year.
Squid definitely needs to go lower. For the love of dish!
Coupe has near-on perfect road stance though.
