The Official Spotted Thread
« on: January 01, 2017, 11:25:21 pm »
As always, new Year, new thread. Welcome to the 2017 edition of VASK spotting!

I spotted/followed a nice blue B8 RS4 down SH1 between Waiouru and Taihape today. Also saw Nik's face on a billboard south of Taihape! Haha

Spotted a coupe quattro (maybe) parked just outside Waikanae Train Station.

It was black/charcoal, white ronal wheels and a white cage inside. Didn't get a good look at the rego but something like PF7xxx

Stopped in to a cafe in Otane after the morning surf.
Stumbled across this line up.
"Petrol heads car club".
One of the old timers summed it up pretty good.
Basically you have to like cars anything really and be a good sort.
My pick was the fiat x 19 such a unique car.

Black late model RS6 on Lincoln road, gdamn, with the factory exhaust, they are just wicked, under the radar racing machines.

It was even quieter than the S8, but the acceleration was awesomeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.   >:D
