The Team

Blair Halkett (Editor)
Blair started Automodified back in 2008 the website was used as a platform for friends to discuss car modifications.

Blair is more of the speed junkie and most of the time you will find him working on his Mk1 Golf or at the track watching the racing action. Joes trying to get him more involved in the show scene and it seems to be working well but Blair likes to be keep his presence anonymous. Blair main role on Automodified is to keep our loyal followers happy and promote the website online as best as possible. If you do happen to spot Blair around, make sure you pull him a side and say howzit.

Joe Klein (Author/Events)
Joe is one of the most active contributors in the AutoModifed Authors circle, Joe aka JK can be found at pretty much every “Show and Shine” event in the Western Cape.

JK has done the whole “show and shine” venture but finally decided to throw in the “Show and Shine” towel in April of this year due to family responsibilities but still he shows up to chat to the guys about what’s doing down in the industry.
If you see Joe about, make sure to pull him a side and say howzit.

Marlize Hoon (Events)
Marlize is one of the Cape Town Contributors, also known as the female driver of the white (now purple) turbo’d Golf Mk2, named “IB6UB9″, at Killarney Race Track.

Besides kicking butt on the strip, you’ll find Marlize updating us with upcoming events in the Cape Town region.

You have been warned guys, don’t mess around with women in turbo charged cars it might just end up in tears.

GIBBO (Midweek Eye Candi Scout)
Shea has been helping the team out with the Midweek Eye Candi Section for some time now. Mr Eye Candi Scout himself has now started posting his own work and hopefully this time around it will be better than ever and more importantly on time. Shea likes long walks on the beaches with many a woman wrapped around his arms. Some call him the “Stig of Candi”, but we just prefer the “Eye Candi Scout”.

Gibbs like most men likes to touch more than look, but unfortunately he is unable to bring you the real deal, so I guess we are just going to have to stick with the Midweek Eye Candi session for now.

If you have worthy Eye Candi that you would like to share with Shea, send him and email at automodified@live.com and he will most probably include it in one of his next inserts.
