The term street tuned car to us is when you take a good car and make it even better and at the same time as practical to be as a daily driver. The Nissan Fairlady Z (Z33) has been one of the cars i had always admired on magazines and in movies. What drew me towards it was its body lines and then it was that glorious torquey motor.
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.
We last witnessed a legal drag race exactly 12months ago, within a few months after it was organized everyone were soon thirsting up for another one! Although attempts were made to hold another drag battle early and mid this year failed, the green light came from the officials to hold it at the Katukurunda Air Strip to end this year.
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.
It was one of those days where you end up having lunch as your first meal for that day…. that late night!
Anyway while we were on our way for some lunch that day… i was somewhat met face to face with this GTR. I ended up just standing in front of it for a few brief moments and watched it from the angle above & clicked the above pic.
During our visit to Sunway recently i spotted this Nissan 370Z roll down the road.
Above the driver drives it in an angle over the speed-bump, to prevent it from scraping the front bar.
