Ravensmead High School Carnival

Last week Thursday I got a call from Abubakr Masoet asking me if I’m available to show off my ride at the Ravensmead High School Carnival.  I always say yes to fundraisings, especially when it’s a school event. The Car show was hosted by Stick Shifters and was in the form of a Burn Out, Sound Off and Show and Shine. A number of rides pulled through and it’s always good to see new rides on show.  Here are some snapshots…

Personally, this was surely a great start to 2012’s car …

Trying to avoid from hitting the dog, he swerved out and hit a pole, damaging the right hand side of the car. That brought immediate tears to …

BM Squad Hook Up at Queens

I remember taking that Sunday afternoon cruise to Sea Point just to check out the guys showing off their pimped out rides. On Sunday I decided to take that same cruise but this time around to Queens Beach. One of Cape Town’s biggest BMW car clubs was having a hook up and photo shoot with SSJ Concepts.

Mardigras 2012 – D1S Drift Exhibition

I attended the D1S drift session at the 2012 Madigras with my matie Mr Cothill and his super sleek Nissan Silvia which has just been resprayed a glossy black by Dragon Customs.
