After the first Burgerfuel meet, people were keen for more. So who would I be to not organise another?
So the day rolled around, the weather looking a bit sketchy in the afternoon, and a few drops of rain before evening. Then the sun went down, the cloud cleared, the stars were out and it was FROSTY!
My nipples could cut glass, they were that sharp.
I took a few pics of the cars that showed up. It was another outstanding social meet, and as Duncan put it "proving the Wellington scene is alive and kicking!".
Most were well behaved, only let down by some clown in a black (dark purple??) Integra who left really early and assumed we had never heard a VTEC car before, so valve bounced first gear as they ran a red light... *epic facepalm*
anyway, let's not focus on the negative - here's the pictures!
I don't think I spoke to the owner of this S14a, but by god it is SO TIDY. Thanks for bringing it out for us all to drool over.
Julian from Obsessive Vehicle Security brought out his Honda Beat. It's the first one I've seen up close in the flesh. So compact, but looks like it'd handle incredibly. I think I'd be a bit tall for it though :(
My lil bro, Adam, bought out his OG spec Mitsi Mirage. It's JUST clicked over 70,000kms, it's got a digital speedo (like a Time-travelling Delorean) and best of all - it's on legit black plates. He's had the hard word from me to keep it immaculate or I shall confiscate such a gem!
On the theme of old school cars, Corey rode out in his Grandads AK Shuttle. This is also in immaculate condition and has just clicked over 100,000kms. You may not be able to telll from the lighting in the photo, but from the factory it came out in a very light pink. So light it looks white here. The pictures don't do it justice.
Bryce also came out in his S14a FR1SKI. He tells us he had to take it from the panel beater before the guy had even finished the work, because he was getting withdrawal symptoms from not driving it. I'd feel the same with a ride like this. It NEEDS to be driven!
The in-frequent tech writer on this blog, Geoff, drove his Shuttle out, complete with a few new additions such as bullbar and spot lights and some fat 5's painted white. Looks HellaFunctional.
Goom's new ride. Complete with hubcaps and 4x4 ride height. Goez hard fo what it iz tho bae. <3
