Richards Little Red Riding Hood

Well, being a VW fan it took some convincing to go another route, but i eventually ended up getting myself a sexy Peugeot 206 GTI 180. I chose the GTI 180 model because of the excellent performance, great handling and good looks. It’s also so much nicer than just a normal 206 GTI.

St. Clare’s church of Assisi fundraiser event

Never in my life have I’ve seen so many people at a car show event. Personally, I think the whole Ocean View community came out to support the St. Clare’s church of Assisi fundraiser event that took place at the Ocean View High school on Saturday, 12 February 2011. Ocean View is a so- called “coloured” township, situated in the area of Noordhoek and Kommetjie. The fundraiser took in form of a “Show and Shine” and “Sound Off” event.

SA Mod scene Vs the world

Just before we get into this I want to state that I am not putting our modification community down, I am purely asking a question.
As routine, I was browsing around the web looking at the type of calibre cars that we have in South Africa. This got me thinking, we have pretty much the exact same model cars and manufactures that of the USA and Europe, but yet we seldom see the type of modifying that they have in either the US or around Europe. I asked myself …

Team DB breakfast “Toy” Run‏

Saturday morning, 5th February, saw a bunch of petrol heads gathering at McDonalds, N1 City. No, they were not on their way to a drag or sound event. They were on their way to Red Cross Hospital to put a smile on a child’s face in the form of a “Breakfast Toy Run”. The “Run” was organized by Daniel and his mates of Team dB, with the main focus of collecting toys and handing them over to the kids of Red Cross Hospital. What great …
