Cool Runnings – VW Bug Shoot

For some reason you can’t call a VW Bug a student car anymore. Why? Because down here in Cape Town they customize anything that is roadworthy approved or that can drive and spin. Look at Dirkie Binneman’s 1972 VW Beetle. This bug affair dated back into the early 2000’s when he laid his hands on his first “Kewer”. His dream was actually to become a BMX rider but faded after an accident he had at one of the competitions. All thanks Westcliff High school for gaining all his knowledge on …

Quiet Interceptor

From the streets of Pniel we bring you one of the finest and meanest looking Quest on planet AM owned by Jetro Cijster. Previously owned by his mom, he turned this little sleeper to what it is today, one mean looking fearsome beast. At first the car was fitted with the original Toyota body kit and 16 inch TSW rims. After visiting a few shows in 2008 he decided to do some changes to the car, not only cosmetic wise but also power wise.

Predator or Prey – Toyo Twins

Over the weekend I’ve decided to hook up with the owners of two hot looking TC’s. The one resides from Cape Town and the other one is from a small town called Pniel, just outside Paarl. What is so unique about these two TC’s is the fact that they look nothing like what’s out there, that is both in the styling and power department. The red and black one belongs to Donovan and is no stranger to AM as well as to the Cape Town car scene.
 His car was featured …

The Namaqua Daisy-Readers Wheels

The car:
Make: Toyota
Model: Conquest
Year: 1998
Engine: 1300 12v– engine swap on the cards

Hailing from the streets of Bonteheuwel, Jade and his Namaqua Daisy need no introduction to the Cape Town car show scene. He’s also a member of the popular JapMotion Crew and when he’s not clowning around, he’s busy building display setups for the club at car show events. He took ownership of his beloved Daisy when it was a total wreck a few years back. At the time he was only 16 years old …

ATL’s Finest – Quicksilver

The colour silver is often seen as a sophisticated colour and along with gold it represents wealth and riches. From Atlantis hails this shiny little rocket known as Quicksilver. I met the owner, Granville Syme, over a year ago when he asked me to do the judging at one of their events. It was here when I first laid eyes on this neat looking 2001 Toyota Corolla RXi. He admits that over the years of owning Quicksilver it went through many nips and tucks to what it is today.

The RXi …

Green Mamba Honda – Readers Wheels

Fy has always loved the civic but due to getting married he was unable to get a hatchback due to future plans and that’s why he bought the Luxline instead, he’s always wanted a car that looked standard until you see a standard model next to it and you can see the subtle modifications done.
