Fire Fly – Ford Escort RS

Neville Varney’s orange little Ford Escort needs no introduction to the Cape Town “Car Show” scene. It went under many transformations to what it is today. He recently had some alterations done to his house by adding another room, all this for his “Show and Shine” trophy collection!

Being a panel- beater by trade, he always wanted to build a show car to advertise his business. When he received an invite from Zabby to showcase his work at one of the first “Streetmod Custom” shows, he decided to build what you …

NavCol Super Car Show – Event Coverage

The excitement and hype generated for the SA Naval College Super Car and Bike Show was worth the wait. Once again, Team Venom, in conjunction with Team Autopunks, unleashed some dangerous venom!!!! The wind was hectic in Gordons Bay, but that did not deter the petrol heads to come out and support this event. It was good to see some new “show and shine” contenders and it just shows how the sport is growing. DJ Ready D along with his wife, Anwar Daniels, Marlon, Zabby, Noer Asmodien and the D1S …

Thanks guys – Mag Addiction‏

Being on holiday for 3 weeks gave me some time to do things on my ride. While I was busy with the speaker pods, I decided that it was time to do something about my wheels. I had them for almost 3 years now and it was time to either replace them or to refurbish. Since I love this wheel so much I decided to refurbish them. I was thinking of a colour change but decided to only high polish the 3 inch lips. I handed them over to Mag …
