It’s a shame that I’ve been unable to attend all of the meets hosted by the Fourinstance guys these past few months. As life is, sometimes things pop up and your free time becomes no longer free. With that said, the Krispy Kreme meets (which take place every second Tuesday of the month) are the meets which I’m always able to attend. If you’ve read our previous articles, you know we love the meets and will be supporting them as long as we can. So, I think it’s fitting that we make a special article which features my snaps from the August, September and October meets.
I could chuck the pictures in chronological order, but I’d rather talk about cars which really stand out to me. Seeing as I own one, I’m a little biased towards these little cars however there’s no doubt that Luke’s static 6n2 is one of the cleanest 6n2s I’ve seen around. Everything works well on this car, the colour of the wheels contrast the Blue body work and make everything pop. The paint by the way is absolutely sublime. Usually an old economical city car like the Polo will have a ding here or there, but Luke’s one has clearly been cared for. It’s nice to also see touches like the old font number plates and the standard grill and splitter, makes a nice change from a lot of other 6n2s scattered around the country.
The next car which grabbed my attention is Matt’s E38. From what I’ve seen on Instagram, the E38 chassis is becoming more and more common over in America. In England however? I can’t say I’ve seen a lot of them done to such a high standard. Once again the theme of sticking to the factory look of the car is as present as it is in Luke’s build. The lack of an Alpina splitter and the use of BMW’s Style 132s keeps a nice OEM package which compliments the drop oh so very well.
Every time we see Ashley’s static MK4 we always mention it in our articles because I simply can’t get over how the guy can manage to run the car static, with such tight fitment, on the unforgiving roads of London. In fact, I’m doing a photo shoot with Ashley and some of his friends this weekend, so I’ll have plenty more to say about it in that article when it comes out later this year.
Our friend Tom also came down in his freshly bagged MK5 to the most recent meet. It was good to catch up and finally see the thing snug on the floor. I actually did a video shoot of the car show casing his Air Lift Performance kit yesterday, and the video is already up on our YouTube channel. You can watch it by clicking here, or simply typing Candy Showroom into YouTube and flicking through our channel. Sam’s Polo is always a nice sight at the meets too. I’m thoroughly keen on his black wheels making a return, whether they’re in the form of Oz Futuras again or something completely new.
Connor and his AA recovery vehicle made an appearance at the meets too, as did some of our other friends. Always good to catch up with everyone who we might not always get to see outside of a car show. That reminds me, I still need to write up that feature I shot of the W201 and Adam’s Polo earlier on in the year. Sorry for taking forever, but I will get to it eventually!
I could mention something interesting about every car in this article, but I’m very lazy. In fact, I’m going to end on that note.
As always, I’ll let my photos do the talking.
