4 & rotary nationals 2011: part 1

On Friday night I drove down to the ASB showgrounds in Greenlane to set up the bB and check out the cars on display at the 4 and Rotary show and shine event. When I walked inside I was immediately impressed - good fitment all over the place! My overall impression of the show was that it was definitely better than last year, and not just because of the amount of stanced cars - nearly every car there had something special on offer and the amount of good quality cars was a lot higher.

The CJC crew had an awesome group of cars on display and I wasn't surprised to hear that they won top judged club overall.

This EK civic was simple, clean and cranking emotions which I appreciated. I remember seeing it in a recent pcar feature but it took me a while to recognise it as the car has just had a new paint job!

Nice...

Just like any car club, CJC has received a lot of hate since they've started up and I liked how they incorporated that into their display theme. Both interesting and amusing! I personally thought they had the best styled cars of the show but you know what they say, haters gonna hate!!!

My jaw spent the majority of the time on the floor drooling over this bad-ass turbocharged mx-5. At first I was a bit gutted about how similar the car is compared to what I want my mx-5 to be like, but these feelings disappeared once I got on the ground and peered underneath it. The cross-member was like 1cm off the ground! Apparently he drove up from hamilton with it that low too - owner, if you are reading this - YOU HAVE DONE A GOOD THING!

The steelies are 15x10's and were fitted perfectly IMO...

I was pleased to hear that cjc member Phil's S2K took out the awards for best Honda and best body work. After trying to convince myself that life will go on now that i've accepted that I can't have an S2000, envy flooded back after seeing one in person again. Everything about this car is so simple and goes perfectly, and I was happy to see him being rewarded for the touches he has put into it.

A few more of my favourite shots...

Hugo Maclean's controversial ae85 was looking sharp! I hadn't yet had the chance to have a good look at the car since it's most recent makeover - new BN sports kit, enormous wing and 16" Meisters. Nice!

Last time I posted a pic of Bruce's Rocket Bunny S13 on here it hadn't had the graphics put on yet. I really liked the car when it was all blue! Never the less, it still looks incredibly rad...

'CNDYMN' Falgs Patel has just painted his TE-37's for a 3rd time, and I have to say that this choice is by far my favourite. The wheels look so much bigger in white!

I'm a huge fan of Christy Booth's S14 and I'd never actually seen the car in person before. The paint-job is absolutely amazing and you can see that she's put a lot of work into everything down to the finest details. Christy took home best presented car and crew, best female owned vehicle and best Nissan to add to the trophy collection!

After checking out all the cars on display I felt that the poor bB looked quite insignificant! I was still very proud of it though - I was the only bB owner and was pretty happy with my stance too. Tomorrow I'll be posting up pictures from the actual show on Saturday so stay tuned for more!
