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.

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.
