Wangan Warriors meeting 10: Girly cars!

November 26, 2011 in wangan warriors by banpei

Car meetings are generally visited by boys (and their toys) but lately I do see more and more girls visiting these meetings. Some of them also bring along their own (tuned) cars.

I featured this Suzuki already in the stickerbomb posting, but nevertheless it is a girl’s car:
It's a girls car!!
Hello Kitty stickerbomb: it can’t get more girly than that!

It was not the only one around: this Honda Civic was also marked with the same It’s a girl’s car sticker:
It is a girls car

This is how the car looks as a whole:
Girly Civic

So what does she do with Pedobear then?
Girly Civic

The Civic was not only covered in flowers on the outside, the inside was well treated as well:

Not really my cup of tea… ;)

That’s it for the Wangan Warriors meeting 10. I really enjoyed the meeting and will certainly go to a next meeting as well!

November 25, 2011 in wangan warriors by banpei

Not only hard tuned cars were present on the Wangan Warriors meeting, but also a lot of oldskool cars from the 80s and early 90s.
I already posted the decals of this original Suzuki Swift GTi before, but here it is in full glory:

Also this original Skyline GT-R R32 can nowadays almost be considered as a classic: Read the rest of this entry →

Wangan Warriors meeting 10: it was a bit misty

November 24, 2011 in wangan warriors by banpei

As said in the first impressions posting: it was misty…
To give you an impression, it was this misty:
It is quite misty out there!
On the positive side it could theoretically be beneficial for taking photos at a smaller diaphragm without losing the depth of field. Unfortunately mist also means there is less light, so I had great difficulty to go higher than 5.6 on one of my lenses…

But this photo of a white Sil80 is a good example of that effect: Read the rest of this entry →

It appears to be completely rust free and bone stock.

Well it should be since it only covered 62000 kilometers so far! Well you actually can’t tell it did 62K with this spotless interior: Read the rest of this entry →

Wangan Warriors Meeting 10: drop the bombs!

November 22, 2011 in wangan warriors by banpei

Bombs, bombs and more bombs… WW10 was almost fully covered in stickerbombed cars. Last years latest trend is definitely going strong now!
First of all this Nissan Skyline R33 GT-R wing intrigued me:
When cheap stickerbombs...
Yes, that’s what happens if you use cheap stickers to bomb your GT-R wing. ;)

As a sidenote, it was a GT-R wing stuck to the bootlid of a GTS-25t: Read the rest of this entry →
