  • modified mania this sun , 21st/07

    hey,

    anyone heading to modified mania this year? showing there car or just going along let me know would be cool to meet a few others from here.

    i will be there wondering around with my camera so if your cars there and want pics just give me a shout. will only be going as public this year due to having so much on i haven't had time to sort a press pass for this. (im shooting a bike show and rock concert the day before and the paper work for that has tied me up in knots)

    i will post a show report and pics on this thread some time next week.

                  ok folks i will split this over a few posts or i wont get time and will forget!

                  modified mania is a small local show here in the south west (it used to be called devon car show), its been steadily growing over the last 6 or so years so now its a good little gathering of all types of modded rides from I.C.E builds to body-kitted show queens and track weapons. this year was no exception with a load of cool rides in the paddock and the added bonus of some of the best drift teams doing demo's as well. kyouto drift , triple B , RK , JDM garage all coming and shredding tyres throughout the day. as well as all the automotive porn to look at we were also treated to fire breathing girls on the main stage and a not to shabby Dj spinning some beats as well.
                  right now on to the bit you clicked on this thread for THE PICTURES!
                  as i put above the first thing to grab me was the R5 mini pick up in the car park the work that went in to making that it really should have been in the show , but the first thing to grab me in the show was this S15 daily driven drifter ROTA's / LSD / front mount everything you need

                  then a EURO R and despite the name they arnt sold here and we dont get to see many clean examples

                  as ive seen over the last 2 years wheel whores are getting big representation in the uk scene there stickers are everywhere

                  then i nearly had an accident in my pants as i found a killer daily driven EG with b16 turbonetics turbo conversion , asr linkeges , takata/bride seat set up , momo wheel , fiber works splitter , good stance and wide jdm rims , comptech brakes - exactly what i have been saying i will do to an EG for years but still havent got round to doing ( it will be done i love this gen civic so much potential)






                  lots more TK so sub this one now folks

                    there were some other nice EG's on the same stand one with a jackson supercharger and one in almost track ready spec but still a daily road car (note the skate wheel wiper delete)


                    now as far as pocket rockets go this take some beating , EP91 running 298.5HP / 222.9KW really nice build buy tuning developments lots of there own parts and dyno time went in to this



                    hellaflush decks seam to be popping up all over the place at the moment

                    really clean lexus IS but not sure about the whole green tape thing loads of people are doing this at shows, but to me it just looks messy and lets down a clean car , if its for protection then take it off when you get there!

                      Looks good. The tape made me laugh, people here use it when they transport a car on an open car trailer to stop it getting bugs/dirt on it when going down the highway. Roughly how many modded cars went.
                      Mx5 NA (1.6L)
                      Impreza ('95 2dr)
                      Chrysler 300C (3.5L)

                        yeah i get the idea but why do 1 wing and the spokes of just the back wheels? it looks rough just peel it off at the show and then if you must use it put more on to go home.

                        humm probably about 150 around that i guess in the main showground and more out in the car-park. like i said its only a small local show so a lot of the cars were low spec daily's etc but its good that the scene gets together for chilled out events like this.

                          now and them someone takes a silly idea and actually follows through with it - like this old ford transit tow truck turned in to mater !

                          of course with dragon performance being based right by me in exeter there was a few tasty rotary's on show like this candy green FD

                            with hydro printing becoming more affordable people are relay going for it with engine plastics

                            one of the better home build sound off cars was this little little mitsi , its not finished yet but still packing 2200Watt RMS and after siting in it i can say thats enough! i did have a chat with the owner and hope to be doing a full magazine feature on it once its all finished off.


                            theres always a skater with a caddy pick up at a uk show

                            another trip to the 90's was this nova running a R5GTT style body kit and sparkle paint

                            sticking with old skool there was the wide body capri ( more on this in future as arranged a private shoot for the owner)

                              did some one say hearse? oh yes they did , this ford granada hearse turned sound wagon was getting lots of attention with punisher themed airbrush work and some serious bass thanks to a wall of JBL's
