Scarlet Lounge Bikini Car Wash-Wicked Promotions

Enjoying the last days of summer we were spoiled with some nice eye candy. I think Gasant of the BM Squad can back me up on this one. Wicked Promotions & Venom Designz hosted on Saturday a Bikini Carwash at Scarlet Lounge in Ottery. The event kicked off at 2 and by the time I got there the parking lot was filled with metal ready to be splashed. Never in my life have I seen so many cars queuing at a car wash and some of the rides didn’t even …

Rides and Vibes Car and Bike Show – Event Coverage

Accompanied by Mr Paul Walker Pakoe, we once again hit the streets of CPT in search of a car show and the smell of Meguair’s lead us to the “Rides and Vibes Car and Bike Show”.
All of this went down at Groote Schuur High School in Newlands on Saturday. They were blessed with some nice summer weather and the turnout speaks for itself. On arrival we were greeted by a fleet of shining metal and the smell of suntan lotion. Once again Cape Town modfathers and sisters supported an event …

I took some time off from my hectic schedule to make a turn at the annual Streetmod Motorshow over the weekend. Thanks to Marlize Hoon for dragging me along.

Stance – Explained

Not too long ago I did a write up called: “From a judge’s point of view”. This was some useful tips for all our “show and shine” petrol heads. So, it’s just fair that I do something on Stance. This is to clear the confusion between the two as most petrol heads confuse the one with the other.
