    Well as you may or may not know, Im currently travelling about in New Zealand.

    Ive joined up some NZ based Forums while im here so see whats going on and last sunday I was invited by the guys from oldschool.co.nz • Index page to join them on a Retro Run near Christchurch!
    So i planned a week around doing this and drove 5 hours south from Nelson where Im based at the moment.

    One of the guys one the forum asked if i would join him in his car (Datsun 1200 Sedan with a 1800 Turbo engine fitted) as he had a broken leg and may not be able to drive the whole distance! I gladly went along lol.

    Also as I got to know them through the day I got invited to look at some of there garages after the run! Now What i found i really wasnt expecting!!

    Well ill let my photos do the talking on this bit.................

    Album 1: Scott Andrews's Photos - Amazing Retro Car Run and the Old Skool Lads - Part 1 | Facebook

    Album 2: Scott Andrews's Photos - Amazing Retro Car Run and the Old Skool Lads - Part 2 | Facebook

    Well it turns out that the group I was "chillin" with were the guys behind the RIVERSIDE Blog R I V E R S I D E — and are actually fairly well known in NZ.
    I even made it onto the blog waving from said Green Datsun 1200 Sedan LOL

    One of the warehouses (garage 1) not only houses there cars but is also their home too!! They live in attic like spaces above the cars and have a lounge and kitchen too!! They even said i could move in....... Hmm Tempting lol
    Garage 2 was just rammed with everything cool and jap Inc a CA18DET powered Starlet and an AE86 race car!!
    Garage 3 was strange!! It looked like a flat with a single garage but inside it was huge with 7 cars Inc an ex mag feature Notchback AE86 race car!!

    Well it certainly was a surprize to see the amount of cool JDMness i did that day and I will be back :thumbs:

    You don't know the right girls then. If they can't listen to you complaining about your apex seals being fooked or your bumper being scattered around the pod in lots of tiny pieces, they're not gonna be right for ya (;

    That's awesome! I've been reading the RIVERSIDE blog for a while now, some seriously sweet stuff on that site.

    I suggest anyone who's interested in old japanese cars and Bosozoku stuff to sit down and
    have a good look through it.

    Either they aren't in your bed, they aren't working the cooker, or they aren't helping you sorting out the cars :D

    ...is there anything else they can legitimately be doing? (anything else ones-self can legitimately be doing, for that matter?!)
