for the Multiple Sclerosis Society. We helped promote the event and thought it would be rude not
to go along and show our presence at the event. So we took along a couple
of our cars and went along to support this great cause and to document the whole event.
£6 lighter but with some mini flapjacks and a lemon juice to quench our expensive thirst.
After being mugged by a leading coffee franchise (we won't name them but check the pic above for a hint)
we headed outside to meet some of the lads with their cars to position them in the typical
car park meet slant, its kind of like etiquette, like taking your hat off indoors.
So with the display set up, cars part cleaned and people starting to arrive we set off
on our first lap of the car park and the halloween cruise.
or stupid stance to be seen. It just looked right. A daily driver, respectfully low and typically JDM.
We aren't huge JDM fans, we don't claim to know much about that "scene" but to us this
just looked like the sort of car that is driven properly and not mommy cuddled all the time.
(original gangsters) of the modified car scene. When Ford released the Sierra back in the late 80's
it was a rather tame, family car. But that soon changed when they came along with the Cosworth
and then the RS500. After success in the BTCC with them and with the wealthier car enthusiasts
being a) the only ones with enough money to buy them but b) being the only ones
able to insure them they became a rare beast and seeing one now is a real treat. The same
can be said for the Escort Cosworth aswell, although they are rare because most can be found
at the bottom of your local lake, ditch or other driving hazard. When these cars came along
that amount of power in a hatch on sale to the public was un heard of and many people couldn't handle it,
These two examples though are in one piece and have been tastefully enhanced to look even
better than standard, well worth a photo we thought!
and you can't turn a corner at a show or a meet without it hitting you in the face.
Two of the nicest static stancers we seen at the meet were these two.
We paticularly liked the fitment on the E36, with the rim really sitting perfectly in relation to the arch.
Those of you who follow the stance scene know that its hard to get the fitment spot on
to allow the arch and rim to be flush, get the tyre tucking and drive it without rubbing issues.
So respect to the owner of this certain car. The Audi stood out to us for a few reasons.
Obviously yes its yellow, so that helped us notice it but the wheels were a contributing factor
along with the huge yellow porsche brakes hiding (or not in this case) behind them.
The stance on this one was again pretty spot on, with 19's being hard to get the body
sat low on as well as being low to the ground, no such problems here though!
Now we are biased because of this but if you have ever seen the car in person you would be too.
Scott has put alot of work into the car and the things he has done are way too long to list
(so watch this space for a feature...) but we will give you the highlights.
Air - Check, ICE - Check, Custom - Double Check
This car is nothing like any other Corsa we have seen. The footwells look like something
from a spaceship and these mated with the way this thing sits on the floor could leave you
to believing that you were watching a Back To The Future modern day car park remake,
just waiting for Marty Mcfly to pop out of the nearest diner.
On a more serious not though we think the car is pretty sweet and
hope to show you much more of it soon.
my token MK1 for this post. Don't know much/anything about it other than its a MK1 Golf
Its sat on Schmidt Modernlines, it looks pretty cool and I like it. So that was that.
met some cool people and the Definitive display
got a great reception from everyone so thanks guys.
Then night wouldn't of happened had it not been for Midnight Cruise so a big shout to them
for arranging the night and raising some serious cash for a great charity.
We look forward to more of the same from them and Definitive will be
right behind them and all the other local events all the way.
We hope you have enjoyed reading and checking out the pics,
there are more below! Keep supporting the site!
