Apologies for being a bit quiet recently, the last few days have been pretty peaceful but everything’s back to normal in the next few days! I’ve got a shoot lined up for another feature car this weekend and then I’m off to the South Mimms Honda meet; I’m sure 300+ Hondas will keep you all happy! But for now, here are a few more pictures from the last few Stockport meets.
Sometimes you can spend ages at car meets waiting for a truly interesting car to turn up without success, only for one to pop up when you least expect it. In this case, I was driving to work when the pristine AE86 you see here pulled out of a side road and joined the rush hour traffic, leaving me more than a little taken aback! Luckily, a number of my friends knew the owner and invited her down to the Northwest Automotive meet at Krispy Kremes that I covered in my last post, allowing me to get a closer look at the car!
Rather than post them separately I thought it best to post some of the pictures from the last few meets all at once. The turnout at the last couple of Stockport meets has been massive and there has been some amazing cars on show, things are definitely picking up since the weather’s been getting nicer. On Saturday night there was a somewhat smaller and more intimate meet at Krispy Kremes in Trafford which was also great fun; sun, cars and doughnuts, what’s not to love!?
You may remember that in my earlier posts about the VTEC Challenge round at Oulton Park I mentioned I was working on a short video that I filmed throughout the day. I finally got round to editing everything and uploading it so enjoy! It’s a little rough around the edges but the most important thing is that you get to listen to lots of VTEC!

Top Gear in Stockport will be a familiar name to most modified car owners in South Manchester as a garage that offers pretty much everything under roof. From the usual MOTs and servicing to custom exhaust fabrication and fitting they’ve got it covered in their modern facility on the outskirts of Stockport. The guys decided to hold an open day at the start of the month in order to let people to get to know the facility and see what they were offering at special prices on the day, Of course, this also meant that there was essentially a pretty large meet in the car park, which was filled some top quality modified motors…
Due to Oulton Park being the local track for most members of the MCR-VTEC forum it was decided to hold a mini-meet in the track paddock on the day of the VTEC Challenge round. The turnout wasn’t massive due to the relatively high ticket price to get into the track for the day but nevertheless there were some sweet cars on display.
