How to Display My Car for Car Shows

Make your car display stand out at the car show.
This is what attracts people to your car-your car display! People come from all around the city, or out of town, to see impressive restored cars, usually based on a particular theme.

If you want to make your car really stand out at the next car show, you can create …

About Us

About AutoModified
How did the idea of AutoModified come about?
AutoModified started off as a hobby website in 2008. In 2009 the website was changed up and the directory was formed. The reason for including the directory was that being a Car enthusiast from Cape Town, I realised that there are so many garages and audio shops scattered around cape town that have absolutely no online exposer. With that in mind the directory came into play.
Why the name?
It is pretty self explanatory really. “Auto” for cars and, well, “modified” I’m sure …

The EMMA Strikes Back

“Yours Truly”: So MC Byron, are you OK with your condition?
MC Byron       : Yeah sure, wait what condition?
“Yours Truly”: The one we were just discussing with your girlfriend!
MC Byron       : That condition! (to be frank his eyes scare me a little…)
Thus began the EMMA 2010 finals.
Demon racing kicked off handling the SPL side of things with all their proceeds going to the Ina Wicker animal shelter in Benoni. This is in fond memory of Ina Wicker who recently passed away. A new shelter is being built …

A busy weekend with my green tanker

While most of you as petrol heads were busy gearing up for different events like the EMMA and Street to Strip, I was busy sorting out my “green tanker”. A couple of weeks ago I took my car for wheel alignment and to my shock, they told me that I needed to replace my steering rack. What? I decided to go for a second opinion. I had to replace it! After collecting dust (my car) for 3 weeks, I decided to replace the rack …

For example you still see a lot of Vw Beetles cruising the streets, Bmw E30’s and the odd Merc from the 1970’s.. You get the picture right? So while I was writing the blog about the Mk2 Gti, it dawned upon me that these cars look pretty decent with a nice pair of wheels and a new lick of paint. These are some of the cars I could find from back …
