Not much can be said that hasn’t already been said. So we’ll just post this tribute made by the Fast and The Furious crew.
I think its safe to say that the Irish Road Racing and MANX TT riders are the craziest two wheelers in the world. The riders slicing through Macau concrete jungle are almost as insane.
We tried our hand at organizing a get together. I thought it was pretty successful. The main purpose was to have a big gathering of E30s off on their own. We had the entire north end lot (against the wall) filled up with 100% e30 content. Mission accomplished. It didn’t help that a lot of people assumed Roses was closed. Technically it was, we were not welcomed there in any way. We figured it easier to stick it out and leave when the cops showed up. Thats more or less what happened. It also didnt help that most of us forgot to take photos. ”hey, lets setup an E30 meet so we can shoot them all together” …. forgets to take pics. That’s us. In lieu of more pics from Roses, I added random E30 pics we took.
Steve cleaning his ride before our meet.
We had planned to do a shoot with Steve’s E30s, Ryan’s E30 and this blue one. Red, white and blue. ’Murica!! Unfortunately the traffic in the evening was so bad, we were all late and the plans fell through. Sucks not having any roaming or data in the States.
Ryan’s E30 (at Chipotle lot) mentioned above.
Rubber Wrap’s bagged E30 vert.
Polished lip beebs, red caps on white with black trim. ;) Mine is sans, red caps….close enough.
Loved this Z3.
Stance Factory posting up.
Not sure why this is the case, it just is. We’ve never had a shoot with Dan’s car before. With an interior like this, we have no excuse. Full S5 Interior (front and rear), along with door insert done by Stu. Almost too nice to sit inside. The car is also for sale.
Peanut butter jelly time.
We also took a few of this nice B6.
While I don’t like Rotiform as a company. I can give Brian credit where credit is due. He almost single handedly brought fourth stanced 964s. He wasn’t the first, but he was definitely the most e-famous. This one is Jason’s black 964. Perfect.
When Matt Morana first told me there was a car show in Oshawa. I figured J bodies, minitrucks, tramp stamps and wife beaters. Turns out it was a muscle car show.
I love the whole rat rod look.
W orks well with trucks too.
Although the ones below might change your mind.
LOVED this green.
On 20 and 22 inch rubber bands.
When your blower has straps…..you know you’ve made it in life.
Each year this is the local VAG show I look forward to the most. It typically brings a wide array of European beauties and this year did not disappoint.
Pfaff Tuning was the title sponsor once again
I spent some time browsing the Audi’s; it always surprises me how few end up showing, nevertheless they are my favorite part of the show.
More to come soon, I haven’t even touched VW; let alone Porsche, BMW, and Mercedes. I also got some great shots of our own cars, 6 of us were fortunate enough to place!
The 2014 season if the World Trouing Car Championship is shaping up. Citroen has announced a full 3 car factory team lead by NINE time WRC champ Sebastian Loeb. He will pilot the new C-Elysee saloon car.
Honda is currently the only other confirmed factory squad. Lada are assumed to have a 2 car outfit with a new model introduced in 2015. Subaru and Renault are considereing a factory team as well. The blue and gold NEEDS to be racing again. It’s been too long.
The video also shows us the upgrades the new 2014 cars will receive. The new cars are 100mm wider, increase wheel size to 18 from 17s., will allow more aero development and will allow a huge rear wing (parralell to roof height). Unseen are the inclusion of Macpherson strut setups, flat floors, an increase in hp to 380hp (from ~320-330hp) and a shedding of 50 kilos. I don’t think they’re as cool as the supertourers with modified suspension pickups, lowered engine mounts, trick differentials, trannies add electronics, dumped on 19s
It was a wet drive, but it seemed as though every time I looked in my rear view, a new car had joined our cruise!
Between Amanda (my other half) and myself, we were able to get some decent rollers. (passanger side shots are hers )
If you don’t see your car you were either too far back from me, it was raining too hard, or the shot did not turn out
Thank you to everyone who tagged along and kept us company on the drive!! It was an awesome cruise. – Matt
