Summer Sports Show ’15

Summer! Its hot, muggy and generally unpredictable. However on January 24th, 2015 it saw some of the crew from the CJC throw a summer party here in Hamilton, New Zealand (home town of the CJC). Instead of the usual ritual for many of our members which consists of entering into a national car show, the idea was put out into the vast space of internet forums and social media to hold an event open to a few local...

Pug Life – Rob’s ‘OEM+’ 205 GTI

  • January 22, 2015

Looking back on the last couple of decade’s worth of people modifying cars, it’s always interesting to reflect on how trends change. In Autosalon’s hey-day it was all about adding as many aftermarket parts to your car; hell, you couldn’t clock Need For Speed: Underground without making your car look like a Transformer. However, in recent years I think most of us agree that being different,...

There are multiple factors involved; the weather, financial situations, feasible dates, and perhaps the most difficult of all: a suitable location in which some fun can be had within the confines...

Pure Ownage

  Saturday, early morning with rain and wind. No better time to take a trip to Hamilton from Auckland right? Hoping the weather would change, as we usually get four seasons in one day, all I was after was enough calm in between the stormy weather to catch up with friends, talk smack and cars! Speaking of cars, one of our members and a good friend, Ryan, who after a few months of buying his 1991...
