Getting too old for the "Silvia" scene?

Recommended Posts

I don't mind the car(s) - it's just the owners are morons.. they would say their car is better than a ferrari because it runs 10s or some lame arse bullshit

 

The other night on the way home from a hard days work i was sitting at a set of lights in my daily wagon and i hear this vtec hit limiter look to my right and i see a 50yr old bloke with a dirty grey half beard in a bloody HONDA... the lights were red WTF RETARD

Love my 180. My daughter says my car makes vroom noise and is bouncy bouncy with the cutest smile on her face, can't go wrong with that mate.

 

:heart: My niece does this as well ^_^

They are doing a cars and coffee style meet this weekend, which I was interested in going to photograph some exotic cars.

 

they have a disclaimer along the lines of 'this is for exotics, classics and luxury vehicles, if you dont meet criteria you'll be parked outside the venue' - WHICH IS FINE. no issue with that.

 

Then they pull 10 cars to make 'tokyo alley' which is all their mates with stanced cars, including Sergios (a zen owner) bucket of shit V35.

 

I want to go take good pictures of some classic super cars, I dont want some 15 grand nugget that I see 3 of every commute in the f**king frame.

 

Like they are that ego driven that they A) think the V35 is on the same plane of existence as a ferrari, lambo, porsche etc and B) they cant throw an event and NOT put their cars in it.

 

f**k, at least Justins R32 has some pedigree to it. The Mazda MPS and VW on bags and a V35 with carbon bootlid are straight out of f**king cabramatta.

 

Meh. Everyone's gonna walk around snapping basically the same photo as everyone else. There's little or no space for creativity. It's the automotive equivalent of Vivid festival, but at least Vivid is fun if you're off your face.

The guy probably had a senior's moment and thought he was pushing the brake or clutch pedals. I saw some chick make that mistake once driving a Commodore once. First she smoked it up half way through a roundabout unintentionally, and then the dumbass tried to turn into her driveway despite travelling way too fast to make the turn on grass. Ploughed directly into a telegraph pole, head hit the windscreen spraying it with blood, etc. Hard to feel sympathy when she could have simply continued driving forward at no consequence whatsoever.

 

At least that dude was stationary when he jumped on the limiter lol.

Having never heard of Zen Garage I went to the site... yeah, they seem to be your run-of-the-mill photography wanksters. I can't really blame them though for wanting to feature their own cars in shows, and it does offer the public the opportunity to ignore their cars and make them feel bad. Irrespective, looking at hardparked exotic cars is as interesting as looking in a sales brochure; if I had to spend an hour standing around looking at things I've seen before, I'd rather go to a strip club.

hondas and golf GTIs. They are always the cars that, depsite sitting in crawling traffic, will launch up beside me and double clutch down as they get next to me, and then suddenly its a f**king battle for who has the fastest lane.

 

Shits me every time.

 

Hahahahaha big time, in bumper to bumper traffic they are trying to run. happens heaps with GTi's, MPS, and 86 owners.

 

I guess under powered cars think they have a advantage in traffic jams

 

Once this idiot wrx at the lights, we both had cars in front of us. I was not racing him I was with my mrs.

 

Spaz wanted to show off He took off so fast he went up the ass of the car in front of him, the poor owner in that car panicked and severed into my lane in front of me.

 

I lost it, I chased the wrx down. High beaming him all the way up his ass.

 

Honestly I have zero tolerance for people who put my life/partners life and the public in danger playing Fast & Furious in traffic.

 

I admit chasing him down was dumb, but I snapped. Don't put my life or my mrs life in danger idiot

They run JDMST, if you hadnt already guessed.

 

Yeah I enjoy taking pictures and practicing that skill though. I also usually ask my old man to tag along as he enjoys looking at cars. Classic cars are just so much easier to shoot than Jap cars - better lines and more character. Never really done exotics so I am keen to try.

 

 

After talking to a mate who is a bit closer to them, apparently Zen cars arent even that mechanically great- the V35 is bone stock w/bags and rims (and a hektik CF bootlid, I guess when your car weighs 1800KG any little bit helps) and the GTR is basically only ever driven for events as its full of leaks. the S15 before that was a pretty nice car but it was also bought as-is by sergio.

 

I mean credit where credit is due for building a brand and running your own business and shit, but dressing it up as 'automotive lifestyle' is just gross. its not a lifestyle. its a thing you do sometimes. There is more corellation between your car interests and my ball sack than the shit they try and palm off as being under the same umbrella.

 

Giving good advice has been replaced with taking played out pictures and watermarking them, and good builds have been replaced with buying a straight car, doing no engine work and adding coils/rims/stance.

 

Cant wait to see the cars and coffee videos (another new hotness in the car scene) of static cars featuring panning shot after panning shot, followed by some close up dolly shots and time lapse photography set to boring as f**k house music. Deeeeeeeeep feels brah. mad chill sesh! *kills self*

So you raged at the guy for endangering your lives... then proceeded to endanger your lives by chasing him down? Agreed, that's impressively dumb.

Let's assess the causality of that one:

 

a. You chase him and give up, looking like a dumbass

b. You chase him and one of you crashes, all in the name of a 'possible outcome' that you turned into a self-fulfilling prophecy

c. You pull over and he kicks your ass in self defence

d. You pull over and kick his ass, then probably get booked with assault

e. You pull over and flop out your cocks, break out the ruler and compare stats like a pro

 

In contrast my preferred alternative, namely calling him a fool and promptly not giving a f**k, results in:

 

a. Being even more chilled and giving even less f**ks than I had prior to the incident, having dodged yet another bullet

b. Sexy time with female passenger

c. Flattering but otherwise unwanted offer of sexy time with male passenger. :puke: Can't blame them for trying I guess.

d. Take a leak at a service station and get lunch

Haha, well fair enough. I would have smashed a big thumbs up to confuse him, but then again I'm a bit of a troll irl.

yeah I agree with you, that's why after I realized it was pretty dumb

 

Sometimes in the heat of the moment you don't have time to think clearly :doh:

 

I like the sexy time option lol

Yeah it's my preferred outcome to most situations, although sometimes that service station visit is just too good to pass up.

Been in love with these cars since 1998 when I drove my first 180sx. Still in love with these cars. Will probably still be tinkering around with them when I'm 60 years old. Serious. Its a great hobby! I don't think one can ever be too old for it.

LOL

 

Add some 30's and 40's music samples with a hip hop beat, blocks of wood to clear the driveway, guy in a snapback riding a bmx thru the carpark, wayfarer sunnies on everyone, random bushy beard, cars rolling slowly thru a perfectly flat carpark, obscure but very "hip" wheel companies that have just popped up overnight and have 50 stock bodied demo cars on air suspension, the list goes on...

 

kinda like stancehunters aka speedhunters these days. spin the bottle and pick from gatebil, another wide body rauh-welt porsche, stanced lexus on air suspension, stanced vw golf and and some random liberty walk lambo with riveted guards. dont get me wrong, some of it is cool, but way to flog shit to death...

That's just the mentality of late teens-early 20's though, almost everyone is a clone. If you see a group of guys hanging out, they're all wearing almost exactly the same shit and they all do the same things.

That's not true, some of them are good drivers, some are not. They just have a different 'hero' system to you and being a good driver just isn't a priority. In your group of friends, fixing cars and ripping big skids is how you prove yourself, these guys are probably more interested in driving a nice car and socializing. I'm sorry but every time I read any of your posts I think either you're an alpha male drift hero hard *milkshake* or you're surrounded by them and feeling insecure, and you look down on people that aren't the same as you. Chill out.

lol... what's up your arse today?

 

On the contrary to what I say I actually don't drive like a tool on the street, all my friends are actually in our late 20s and early 30s and actually prefer to hit up tracks to do our business. Occasionally skid days are taken up for us to destroy tyres and rip farking hectic skidzz on a motorsport pad.

 

And yes.. to support what I said earlier, these morons can't drive for shit.. I've had idiots overtake me - nearly taking me out, I've had idiots light up their wheels at the lights and try and drag me whilst I'm not giving the slightest two fuarks about what they're doing.

 

Then hit up track days and you see the same idiots running shit times, then going back home OR on JDMST hectic stance hellaflush forums and tell everyone they ran mad times and chopped cars..

 

Another reason why I only go track days with the HSV club, because I don't have to deal with knob jocky fuarking little kids in their riced up dim sim mobiles.

 

Btw, my friends and I are going Wakefield / Speed of the Streets 22nd August. Love to see you there.

 

 

I don't look down on anyone, go ask people on this forum who I've helped out and shown how to do things without being condescending. I always encourage people to give it ago, because we are enthusiasts right? we should be enthusiastic enough to work on our own cars.. look back a few decades, men were real men... they serviced their car, they fixed their own lawn mowers... these days you have a bunch of prissy shits that can't even use a screw driver OR change a seal in a tap.

 

So there's some food for thought... and before you say that you have an office job and prefer not to get your hands dirty etc.. all my mates are in corporate and yet we're more than happy to get our hands dirty.. build/learn/breakshit/try again.. that's the fun part right?

 

Then there are forums, workshops, clubs, etc. which all contribute into our passion/hobbies and together we share knowledge and shit.

 

If I was a total fully sick cut sick hero alpha male, why would I help people? why would I help them make their cars more hektic than mine... so go figure.

 

To wrap up, I disklike majority of Honda owners (I'm sure there are nice Honda owners who appreciate cars - however yet to meet anyone) - if they were more like Skyline owners OR like WRX/Evo owners.. awesome.. however they are not.. they are a bunch of wankers.. with their "turbo sucks" "NA rules" attitude, funny how +10 years on most of them and they either go to a turbo car or a V8.

 

Anyhow, good day to you sir.
