WW Kick-off 2013: Rusty Reborn!

This incredible project was parked on the other side of the road of the meetup (used as the parking lot) and created by an ex-MX5 owner. It is, obviously, heavily inspired by Mike Burroughs’ Rusty ratty 5 series beemer.

I must say he did an excellent job on lowering the car. It may not look as low as the original, but believe me it can’t be lowered more than this unless the exhaust gets modified.

Anyway, let’s talk a bit about this Civic: I think the IKEA background suits this Civic. This Civic does not seem to have a clear theme and is a bit of various popular parts together. Take a bra / nose protector, ground scrapingly low coilover set, wide steelies and you are done with it.

Of course that summary is very harsh and I actually did like the car as a whole and took several more pictures of it… Continue reading

WW Kick-off 2013: first impressions

No April’s fools today but my genuine impression on yesterday’s Wangan Warriors kick-off 2013 meetup!
I think this picture sums up most of the meeting:

Many people with great cars (even though not all my style) and many people with cameras meeting up. I just loved the atmosphere and everybody thought the same even though it started to snow a couple of times…

More photos following later on!
