I’ve found the Autoshow to provide great photo opportunities. Unfortunately, the background ruins a lot of the shots. I’ve tried to go for up close photos to fix that. Practice, practice, practice. I honestly didn’t think I’d be uploading my own photos as much as I have lately. More to come!!
Pre Season testing for the V8 folks. I have no idea how to predict this season. All new cars (even though they look similar to last years), 2 new manufacturers (in Nissan and Mercedes), and new teams and sponsors. I’d say its hard to bet against the yardstick in Triple 8 Race Engineering, now with Redbull branding. Ford will again be right up there with Holden, you can count on that. Nissan and Mercedes are a crap shoot. I do beleive with the additionlal testing Nissan will have the upper hand. Can’t wait for the season to start.
Need something new for next season? Here is your chance. We seem to have a set of wheels for sale…shocking.
I picked these up off their original owner recently. The wheels are in great overall shape and are still original (sticker, seals, bolts, valve stems, etc.) All the bolts, centre caps, etc. can be had new from Work if one were inclined but that would only be if you wanted to re-do them. As they are the condition is GOOD. The lips have some usual clear coat imperfections but I actually didn’t even notice until after I washed and dried them. The paint of the faces is near flawless. 2 of the rear lips have some minor curb (I can’t even call it rash), nothing some light sanding wouldn’t COMPLETELY clear up.
The tires have decent tread left, especially the fronts, but they are from 2002 so they are starting to crack a little. They are basically a throw in but if you are serious about buying I can have them removed.
$2600 or best reasonable offer. These wheels retail for the same cost as LMs, and from what I can gather these are harder to come by (although not harder to find parts for as Work still makes them). I am not looking for trades unless it’s something very unique. If they don’t sell I will replace my LMs with them next year.
This year seemed to be a total 180 from what we came down into last year. Nearly no rain, clear skies, nice weather, and a hell of a lot of dope cars. It seemed this year the outcasts were even more prevalent then years before.
I do still have to produce the show footage. Coming back from that weekend with a folder sized at over 40gb, I have had my work cut out for me, both with photos and a whole lot of video after feeling terrible for not having much last year.
