MRN Stunners & Low&Slow Crew Car Show

A while ago I was approached by Marwaan Brittow to judge an event. MRN Stunnerz, in association with Low & Slow Crew, hosted their very first show & shine event. Linked to it was a bikini car wash, a sound off as well as a park off. It all went down over the weekend at Pinelands Sports field. All of this was in aid to raise funds for the Monte Dragons Dragon Boat Club.
 
Monte Dragon Boat Club is a community based dragon boat crew who will represent Western Cape Dragon …

The Ultimate Ridez car show

What a crazy start to the weekend?! On Friday, 27 April 2012, J.S. Klopper Primary in association with SSJ Concepts hosted one awesome event, “The Ultimate Ridez” car show out in Elsies River. The venue was packed with some awesome rides and peeps. There were some Car Club displays but it was the show cars that attracted the masses. Also paying R100 for unlimited dB runs surely created some headaches in the Autopunks camp. There was also some great Live Entertainment and super DJ’s wrecking the decks. ProTouch Ottery, Arrow …

Team Stance R Development club photoshoot

One thing about the Mother City’s petrol head scene is that we are blessed with a number of car clubs that always show support at any given car event. Over the weekend I had a chance to meet up with one of the supporting clubs, Team SRD, or should I say “Team Stance R Development”. We met up at Muizenberg Beach where Michael’s lambo door Golf almost caused a collision amongst the passing by traffic. People stopped to take pics of “Hulky”, causing a slow movement in the traffic! The …
