Bellville Velodrome, Cape Town.
From humble beginnings several
years ago at civic centre halls in retreat, to the great event
that it is today, Zabby and his team of dedicated followers have
taken the StreetModz brand from strength to strength. From old
skool hot rods to the more… spicier cars of today StreetModz
caters for all types of car enthusiasts. This year saw a change
of scenery at the Bellville Velodrome from the usual Goodhope
Centre, which was a fresh and pleasant experience. With roughly
100 cars and a few bikes on display the floor space was jam-packed
to the brim. But that’s excluding the field outside which
had the car clubs out and about, but more of that later on. Here’s
some of the indoor show cars, find the rest of the gallery further
the?! Yes dear readers, it's a Honda Prelude. This car has been
coming on from a very long time and it finally made it out of
the workshop. You might remember it from a good few years back
when it used to hit the scene hard in its silver paint and its
well known front bonnet nostrils/intakes.
SSS is an absolute minter! I love the colour and rim combo.
TopEnd Racing had one of their latest projects on show which saw
a twin turbo conversion done to this 350Z. It's currently making
close to 300Kw's on only 0.4bar boost. It's going to be a mental
monster once fully completed.
There were a few Mk3's on display from the guys at Outlaw Air
Worx. This seems to be the new craze at the moment. But I'm just
not sure about the amount of kit needed in the boot to operate
There were even a few 86's on show. It's only a matter of time
before we see these babies fully kitted out. Not sure about this
particular choice of wheel though...
CPI Chip Tuning in the house...
I love it, I love it, I love it! It's interesting to see how the
trends are changing, for the better.
An ex Raceweb feature... which I see has been tweeked by CPI...
An M3 convertable fully wrapped... a brave choice of colour which
has paid off pretty well!
Like I said, StreetModz caters for all sorts.
This has to be one of the rarest cars in the country. A Honda
NSX... a great car with lots of potential, but I think this one
just looked a bit dated in stock form. A typical 90's Japanese
sports car. But there's nothing a "rim and a drop" can't
Yet another ex Raceweb feature, Cherone and his ZX10 is always
a show stopper.
There was a strong Lumina presence... South Africa's modern day
How awesome is that!!! Eight XR8's!
Bug life! Respect!
You cant deny the fact that it looks bloody awesome!
I think the guys from CapeStance.com
had the best car's on display. These boys are clearly steering
the trends now days.
Voted one of the hottest Civic's in Cape Town... Yes Sir!
I love this little Mk1. It's got some crazy camber at the back!
Looks equally as good from the front...
I found this hilarious... but true.
Pure evil! Menacing Matte as its better known was back on show
this year with its usual antiques. Looking even better with the
black wheels this time...
This doll could come in pretty handy should I intend to scare
the sh!t out of someone.
