SPAD ’17 Featured Cars, The Winning Whip

Featured Cars
Is a cool new way of getting some of the most interesting builds, pretty rides, totally tatty, or just pristine OEM cars onto the front of the stand for some public attention at shows and events…
The idea is to have some fun, make the stand a little more interactive, make new friends and of course, a little friendly, internal competition!

Spring Performance Action Day
Was the first Club stand of the year for ‘Punks, 2nd year running,  a first to try out the new Featured Car Display… We weren’t expecting it to go quite as well as it did, but we’ve still come away with ideas and inspirations for the next Display (Japfest baby!)

If you want to know how to get yourself in for center stand at the next event, here’s how…

Combustionpunks kicked off the show season with
Spring Performance Action Day
at Castle Combe.

With 4 featured cars on display, only one could end the day as “Top Punk” earning not only team points for their ‘Punks Team, (NEW to the Forum!) but also an exclusive selection of “Top Punk” merch and stickers and some blog and website coverage…

We printed out some voting slips, took some pens, resourced a makeshift sign and barraged the public for their favourite car out of the top 4 center display.

The 4 Featured Cars to choose from…

“The Purple Monster”

 

We caught up with Chris after the show to ask him a few questions…

You’ve been building it for the last 3-4 years, is that right?
Ive owned the car for about 3 1/2 years now

You’ve had some recent body Work done, its looking great. Where does your inspiration come from?
To be honest I’ve just winged it and bought items here and there and it seemed to have just fallen together perfectly. Some things have been trial and error but it seems I’ve got a good eye on what would work and what wouldn’t. More luck than judgement? Who knows lol

What is your favourite Mod Fitted so far?
That’s a tough one, probably the supercharger conversion

What new mods do you have ready to fit?
That would be telling! I’ve got a few things up my sleeve for later on this year

How does it feel to be voted favourite car of the CP stand?
It felt pretty awesome, just being there with the club as a whole was enough. Winning Top Punk was an awesome end to the show #TeamTOKU

We can’t wait to see what this year brings build wise from you Chris!
Thank you again for being such a sport, and congrats on winning TOPPUNK! 

A massive thank you to everyone who participated, we’re all looking forward to the next show,
Japfest at Silverstone 30th April.
