A few years ago i remember seeing the ever so famous super car meet which was held at the nawam mawatha car park… and i thought wow thats just brilliant. The selection of car that were present that day was insane! Since then i remember hearing a few friends of mine mentioning “back in that day… there was this super car meet where the best of Sri Lanka’s performance cars met”.
From then on the question that i kept asking my self was why hasnt it been happening… I never got the answer to that question until we celebrated our 1 year anniversary of pistontorque last year. Thats when i saw the true potential of our community! Everyone enjoyed last year and that was what made me come up with this meet up, which will from now on been an annual meet up!
Our 2nd Year meet up took place on the 3rd of February @3pm and below is what went down.
A few nights ago we thought it would be great to step out for some late night dinner during the mid week. We called our good friend Muditha to come talk about cars and also find out what he plans on doing to his newly acquired R34 Skyline GT. This friends isnt a shoot.. Its just a random meet up that goes with a new title that you see above “# Street-Out #”. So dont expect all the details that you would on a full feature.
A few days ago a message was sent out from a village far far away in Ja-ela for a sudden BMW meet up.. more like a farewell to an E34 known to many in the Bavarian Alternative Club.
With every year end comes alot of new year resolutions for almost all of us. Well for me it was to actually “organize my 1st ever car meet up” among my many other resolutions. When it came to selecting an appropriate date to organize my 1st meet, i then realized that this February has been exactly 1 year since i started photographing cars… with that i decided to combine the two and this is are the results.
I wonder if there’s any better way to celebrate this than to get the guest of honor chucked into a trolley…. Thats what happens when a Raptor messes with an Angry Bird :D
Well then… how did it all start that day?
Its 11:50AM on Sunday September the 4th 2011 and you find people on the streets going about their work calmly and peacefully as usual as any other sunday…
That is all about to change.
