Modified Nationals Top 10

1 06 2010

Right, after sifting through the pictures I was having somewhat of a hard time deciding which ones to post up. Which is when it struck me that using the age old method of the Top 10 system might just work. So here we go, my Top 10 cars from The Modified Nationals 2010. There may be some controversial choices in there but I’ve tried to keep the choices are varied as possible as well as choosing from a lot of different budget ranges. So sit back, relax and please feel free to debate my choices.

9. Carbon Fibre Honda Civic

8. Fiat Punto

Modified Nationals 2010 – Preview

30 05 2010

Well today I headed to Peterborough for the Annual Modified Nationals show. Now, I have to admit, I was slightly apprehensive as the Mod Nats does have something of a reputation for being a plastic tat fest galore (that can be taken one of two ways). Now while there is still an element of this kind of thing I was pleasantly surprised to see a really good amount of high quality, really well modified cars on display. There is no doubting the influence Euro or Cleaned styled cars are having on the UK scene at the moment as the place was rammed with them. Now while some elitists hate this, I’m all for it, I’d much rather attend a show full of cars like this than one with just a couple of gems amongst the plastic and neons. So, here is a sneak preview of what turned out to be a surprisingly enjoyable show. More pictures up tomorrow and the whole gallery will be on the flickr by the end of the week.

Big Bang 2010 Pt. 1

25 04 2010

Well today didn’t get off to the best of starts. We arrived at Santa Pod to be greeted by cloudy sky’s and spitting rain. Never a good sign at a Drag Strip. Already some of the cars were leaving, which always a bit of a disheartening sight when you’re driving through the gates at 9 in the morning. However as the day went on the sun struggled to push through, giving a glimmer of hope. Eventually by the afternoon the Sun shone and I could get some better pictures. Unfortunately just as the Sun came out a lot of people had decided to call it a day so the majority of the shots are of people on their way out. Still, it was a good day, with a lot of nice cars on show. I’m looking forward to a lot more Air-Cooled shows at The Pod this year, hopefully with a bit more sun.





A Night at the Ace Pt. 2

16 04 2010

Well I decided that the quality of cars was way too high to just show six pictures from the Ace Cafe the other night, so feast your eyes on these!

Flared arches, Image Split Rims and a lairy 90’s paint-job… yes please! Oh, and the 5.7 Chevy V8 that spins up those massive rears is quite pleasant too. Damn!
